2016-17 Premier League - Tottenham vs Leicester

This weekend sees the first head to head between the teams who were the closest rivals for last season's Premier League title. Tottenham Hotspur host Leicester City at White Hart Lane, but this season their fortunes have been rather different.

Spurs are currently one point off the top, albeit in fifth place in the table. They are nine games unbeaten, making this their best ever start to a Premier League season. They're still some way short of their title winning season in the old First Division, though. In 1961-2 they managed a whopping sixteen games before losing, and if they can replicate that this season they may well be positioned to confirm the title challenging form they've shown thus far.

They've been the bridesmaid for the last couple of years now, coming close to the top but never quite making it to the pinnacle. This season has shown their young team maturing, and may well be the moment they finally deliver on all their promise. Given Leicester's poor away form this season we think they will likely have the edge here, and the best place to back them is at BetFred, who are offering a decent 4/6.

It's hard to gauge Leicester this season. They have put in some great performances, but they've also barely shown up for other games. Their Champions League form is every bit as good as the title-winning Leicester of last year, and it's hard not to believe that manager Claudio Ranieri must be prioritising that over trying to defend their title.

That said, Leicester remain a potent force even compared to the biggest teams in the league, and they could still have a big part to play in the Premiership this season. The best place to back them is at 11/2 at BoyleSports.

When all is said and done though, we think this will be Tottenham's victory after a bit of a fight. The best place to back Tottenham to Win and Both Teams to Score is at Coral, who have it priced at a reasonable 12/5.

2016-17 Premier League - Saturday Roundup

We've looked at Tottenham vs Leicester in another post but there's still plenty of value left in Saturday's Premier League matches. We've looked at the best odds we could find on some intriguing possibilities this weekend.

West Brom host Man City,  the latest in a string of tough matches for them after having to deal with Liverpool last weekend and Tottenham the game before. They lost their match in Liverpool, but they have been playing admirably over the last few weeks and their draw against Spurs was well earned.

Man City have a habit of sometimes underperforming against smaller sides. On the face of it this match should be an easy win for them, but in practice they might find it a bit harder, and we're tempted to put money on that.

The best place to back West Brom to draw with City is at ToteSport, who have priced it at 18/5.

Elsewhere, Middlesbrough host Bournemouth in a match which may well be important come the end of the season. Currently it's Middlesbrough who are on the edge of the relegation zone, but last season Bournemouth came close to the drop and it's still too soon to say which teams will be fighting for their survival come May.

Bournemouth and Middlesbrough have both produced good performances in the last couple of weeks and this could be a very close game. Our feeling is that the home side should be able to edge it, and the best place to back them is at BoyleSports, who have edged the best price on the market at 31/20.

Finally, if you fancy some longer odds betting, an accumulator might be in order. We went to PaddyPower and picked out Arsenal, Man Utd, Liverpool, and Man City to win for decent odds of roughly 7/2. If you throw in your picks from the remainging games you can boost those odds still further - well worth a look in our opinion!
