Tottenham host Leicester in the Premier League on Sunday in a game that will have major implications on who finishes in the top four this season. Spurs are battling with Arsenal to secure Champions League football but will the Foxes cause an upset?

Leicester will likely have one eye on their Europa Conference League game on Thursday but we’re on the hunt for some value picks. Here’s what we’re backing!

WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!

Tottenham to Win and BTTS

Tottenham come into this one knowing they need to win to keep on the tails of their arch-rivals Arsenal in the top four race. Antonio Conte’s men will also be desperate to bounce back from a couple of disappointing results against Brighton and Brentford over the last couple of weeks.

We’re expecting Tottenham to get the job done thanks to Leicester’s poor away record this season. The Foxes have won just once on the road in the Premier League since October. It’s also worth noting that Leicester’s focus will be on their Europa Conference League semi-final second leg against Roma on Thursday.

While we’re expecting Tottenham to win, we also fancy both teams to score. Spurs have conceded in five of their last six home games, while BTTS has landed in Leicester’s last three away games. Tottenham to Win and BTTS is a solid pick.

Cristian Romero to be Shown a Card

Cristian Romero has been solid next to Eric Dier in the heart of the Tottenham defence, however, he’s prone to a rash challenge or getting involved in something he doesn’t need to.

The Argentina international could be up against Jamie Vardy, who gives every defender a torrid time when they face off. Vardy’s pace will be crucial to Leicester’s game plan and Romero will have to deal with the 35-year-old. Cristian Romero to be Shown a Card is one of our best bets.

Son Heung-min to score a goal assisted by Harry Kane

Harry Kane and Son Heung-min have combined for 40 Premier League goals at Tottenham so this bet makes plenty of sense. Leicester will likely sit back and try to hit Spurs on the counter attack so it could take an intricate one-two between Kane and Son for Conte’s side to get the breakthrough.

There’s also a chance of Spurs hitting the Foxes on the counter, with Kane finding Son with one of his his inch-perfect passes. Son has 17 Premier League goals this campaign and Kane is currently sitting on eight assists.

Paddy Power have boosted Son Heung-min to score a goal assisted by Harry Kane so that’ll do us!
