Tuesday Premier League picks from Miller: Leicester City vs Brighton, and Tottenham vs West Ham United

Two struggling European hopefuls, Leicester City and Tottenham, look to right ships Tuesday. Match times are 1 pm and 3:15 pm EDT.

Even before the COVID-19 break, both Leicester City and Tottenham have struggled mightily to win games since the turn of the year.

Tottenham have been knocked out of the UEFA Champions League and F.A. Cup, and is 15th in the form guide for the Premier League over its last 10 matches. Leicester City is not much better, sitting in 13th over that same period, with just two wins from nine.

Both teams are chasing a UEFA spot in the table. Leicester is looking to lock up a Champions League place, and is still eight-points clear of sixth place Wolverhampton and fifth place Manchester United. A win Tuesday over relegation threatened Brighton & Hove Albion would go a long way towards sealing up a Champions League spot for next season.

For Tottenham, though, it may be a tougher road to hoe: the Spurs have looked leggy at times, especially in the second half against Manchester United Friday, and really need to beat West Ham United Tuesday. The Hammers are fighting to stay up as well, and could find themselves inside the bottom three with a loss.

I will go with the favorites here, but I like Leicester much more than Tottenham.
