Prediction and odds for the game: Leeds (23/10) vs Tottenham (evens)
We are backing the draw at 11/4
When: Saturday, 8th May 2021, Kick-off 12:30
Where: Elland Road
On Saturday afternoon, Leeds host Tottenham at Elland Road in the Premier League, as the visitors look to enhance their chances of European football for next season.
The Whites will be looking to get back to winning ways in the Premier League after a three-game winless run. Last time out, Marcelo Bielsa’s team suffered a 2-0 defeat at relegation-threatened Brighton.
The team from Yorkshire’s main objective is now to finish in the Premier League’s top half. They are currently 11th place, a point behind tenth-place Aston Villa. Whatever happens for the rest of the season, Leeds will consider this season a success.
Leeds have a mixed recent home record in the English top-flight. The Whites are unbeaten in four home league matches at Elland Road but have won just one of their previous five league games on home soil.
Their recent home matches in the Premier League have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in four of their last five games in the English top-flight. Bielsa’s team have also failed to score in three of their last five league matches on home soil.
The team from north London are experiencing an inconsistent campaign this season. Spurs are currently sixth-place in the table, five points adrift of fourth-place capital rivals Chelsea. With the Blues facing a trip to Manchester City this weekend, Tottenham could make up ground on Thomas Tuchel’s team. With time running out, Spurs’ form must improve if they want to have any chance of qualifying for the Champions League for next season.
A 4-0 win over doomed Sheffield United last time out means that Tottenham are unbeaten in three league matches, having recorded two straight league wins. The visitors have also lost just one of their previous six league games.
Tottenham have been prolific of late in the Premier League, scoring at least two goals in five of their last six matches in the English top-flight.
The visitors have been inconsistent on their travels in the English top-flight. They are unbeaten in three matches away from home in the Premier League but have won just three of their previous 13 away games in the league. Tottenham’s recent away matches in the top-flight have been high-scoring. The fact that Spurs have scored at least two goals in three of their last four matches, while also conceding at least two goals in the same run.
Both teams have been inconsistent this season. Leeds are tough to beat at home, while Spurs form seems to be improving. This is an unpredictable clash, but we are backing the draw. The other bet we are backing is over 2.5 goals, as Leeds are very open defensively and Spurs have been prolific in front of goals of late.
Verdict: We are backing the draw at odds of 11/4 and/or over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 4/6. (All odds are taken from Bet365)[geosnippet id=3620]
