All eyes will be on Elland Road when Leeds United and Tottenham face each other in a highly-anticipated last-day clash. Our sportsbook offers the best markets and Premier League live betting odds in the English top-flight league.
Leeds: Fighting for Survival
Leeds’ final home game of the season pits it against Tottenham at Elland Road, with the visitors already out of the race for the top six. Jack Harrison’s 90th-minute goal sealed a 2-1 final-day win at Brentford last season to save Leeds from relegation, and the club will need something similar this time.
Defeat or a draw against Tottenham would equal relegation, regardless of Everton and Leicester’s results. Victory over Spurs would bring Allardyce’s side to 34 points, but if Everton beats Bournemouth at home, it will still be relegated.
A draw for Everton would bring goal difference into play, and defeat to Bournemouth would put Leeds above Everton by a point. Leicester is also in a position where it has to win, but it does have the best goal difference of the teams involved, so if you’re betting online, you should expect another high-scoring affair on Sunday.
Rodrigo and Patrick Bamford are doubts for Leeds after picking up injuries in the defeat to West Ham, leaving Sam Allardyce incredibly short up front. Wilfried Gnonto could start as a result, and Brenden Aaronson is pushing for greater involvement, but Luis Sinisterra and Tyler Adams remain out.
It is fair to say that Allardyce’s influence is already being well and truly felt. However, influence has not translated into wins for Leeds, who enter the weekend below the dotted line in 19th place, two points below Everton.
Tottenham: Fighting for Conference League Spot
For Tottenham, the end of the campaign can’t come soon enough, with Ryan Mason and his players now relying on favors from Aston Villa if they are to secure a place in the Europa Conference League next season. The caretaker boss has voiced his desire to get the Tottenham job permanently, but those hopes have faded after another run of poor performances.
It remains to be seen whether Mason and Tottenham stick with the back-four system that worked in the first half against Brentford but failed to prevent familiar failings after the break. Cristian Romero and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg both missed that defeat but are pushing to return against Leeds, and Lucas Moura will be keen to make a final appearance for Spurs before leaving the club when his contract expires this summer.
As always, a player to watch in the away team will be Harry Kane, who scored his 28th goal of the season in a 3-1 loss to Brentford. Rodrigo Bentancur and Ryan Sessegnon are out of contention with injuries, as well as goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. We can’t trust Tottenham enough to include it in our Premier League picks and parlays.
Leeds vs Tottenham Head-to-Head
Defensive frailties have been a key factor behind Tottenham’s notable dip in form, keeping only one clean sheet in its last 12 league games and conceding at least twice in seven matches. Spurs also conceded three in the 4-3 win against Leeds in the reverse fixture. They won just five road games this season, allowing 37 goals in 18 away games. They are winless in their previous seven away games, losing five. On the other side, Leeds scored in seven of its previous eight home games.

Leeds vs Tottenham Picks and Prediction
These are not two teams that you can confidently predict will show up and deliver a strong performance, with Leeds deep in the relegation fight and Spurs limping into the summer. The need is much greater for Leeds, and it’s sure to be an incredible atmosphere at Elland Road, but even that might not be enough to drag their side to the required three points.
We will avoid the moneyline because it’s tough to back one of the two sides, but we expect a high-scoring affair.
