Tottenham v Leeds betting tips: Attack a concern for Conte
Tottenham v Leeds betting tips and odds
Antonio Conte takes charge of Tottenham in a Premier League home game for the first time on Sunday afternoon priced at 7/10 to beat Leeds.
Spurs failed to have a shot on target in his first top-flight game before the international break, a goalless draw with Everton, who had a penalty decision overturned.
Sunday’s opponents are unbeaten in their last three games, but remain without star striker Patrick Banford, so let’s look at the prospects of the two teams in our Tottenham v Leeds betting tips.
Tottenham have now gone three hours and 47 minutes without registering a shot on target so their odds are perhaps on the low side for Sunday’s game.
Leeds head to north London buoyed by 1-1 draws against Wolves and Leicester either side of a 2-1 win at Norwich, so we go 14/5 on another share of the spoils, 18/5 on that outcome with goals at both ends or 13/2 on another 1-1 draw.
United have scored and conceded in their last three games and both teams to score is available at 4/6, while their last nine games have involved three goals or fewer.

With that in mind for our Tottenham v Leeds betting tips, under 1.5 goals in the first half, two or fewer in the second and either team to win looks an interesting possibility at 6/4.
In the absence of Bamford, Marcelo Bielsa’s men have scored exactly once in seven of their 11 games and are 6/4 to bag just one goal against Tottenham, who are 24/5 not to score.
However, Leeds have kept just one clean sheet this season, so we go 11/10 on both teams to score and over 2.5 goals in the match.
Conte said Tottenham had “a lot of space for improvement tactically” following the game at Goodison Park where he went with a three-man defence marshalled by Eric Dier, supported by Ben Davies and Romero, who picked up a thigh injury in Tuesday’s goalless World Cup qualifier with Brazil.

Raphinha should be fit for Leeds despite taking an elbow in the face from Argentina defender Nicolas Otamendi which drew blood yet resulted in no action from officials who were consequently suspended by CONMEBOL.
Leeds were the better team against Leicester last time out, so Dan James is expected to lead the line again in a 4-2-3-1 formation with Kalvin Phillips and Adam Forshaw in holding midfield roles.
Harry Kane scored seven goals in two World Cup qualifiers against Albania and San Marino but has still only scored one goal in the Premier League this season.
James has yet to get off the mark since joining the Whites from Manchester United and is 10/1 to draw first blood or 7/2 to score, but winger Raphinha represents the visitors’ best hope at 8/1 and 3/1 having netted the game’s first goal in his last two Premier League games.
