Sixth-placed Spurs are favourites to leave Elland Road with all three points in Saturday's lunchtime kick-off but Ryan Mason's side are available at odds against and a best-priced 11-10 whereas Leeds are just shy of 3-1 at a best available 56-19.

The draw is on offer at 13-5 and Tottenham's Premier League Golden Boot front runner Harry Kane heads the first scorer market at 15-4.

Tottenham's Carlos Vinicius is next at 11-2, followed by Whites no 9 Bamford at 23-4.

But two more of the obvious Spurs threats are next with both Gareth Bale and Son Heung-Min 6-1 to net the game's opening goal.

There are the usual decent prices about other Leeds attacking threats to score first such as Rodrigo (19-2), Raphinha (12s), Pablo Hernandez (12s), Tyler Roberts (13s), Ian Poveda (16s), Mateusz Klich (19s), Jack Harrison (19s) and Stuart Dallas (20s).

Youngsters Sam Greenwood (9s), Joe Gelhardt (9s) and Crysencio Summerville (16s) are also prominent at least in the betting market.

Steven Bergwijn (10s), Lucas Moura (21-2), Dele Alli (12s), Erik Lamela (14s) and Giovani Lo Celso (18s) are the the most prominent Spurs players in the first scorer market.

A 1-1 draw is favourite in the correct score market at 39-5, followed by three outcomes resulting a Spurs victory via 2-1, 1-0 and 2-0 scorelines at 44-5, 11-1 and 25-2 respectively.

But Leeds are far from written off with the bookmakers who make a 2-1 triumph for Bielsa's side the most likely method for a home victory at 13-1.
