Tottenham Hotspur vs Everton Odds Guide, Preview, Betting Picks, Predictions: Sweet On Toffees?

Son Heung-MinDespite their issues with points deductions, Everton are one of the form teams in the Premier League and the Toffees aim to extend their good run on the road to Tottenham on Saturday (10am ET; 3pm GMT).

Spurs stuttered after a bright start to the season but Ange Postecoglou’s men have won their last two games so, while this may not be the most crucial game of the weekend, it could be the most hard fought and entertaining. Read on for our THFC vs EFC preview with betting predictions and picks.

Spurs start as clear favorites to take the points on Saturday, with most USA sports bookmakers offering odds of 3/4 for the home win on the moneyline. Victory for Everton is next at 3/1, while the draw is marginally further back at 16/5.

Everton’s 2-0 win away to Burnley last weekend means that Sean Dyche’s team have now claimed 15 points from their last six matches. That 10-point deduction seems to have galvanized the squad and the Toffees are pulling into a safe mid-table position.

Tottenham have claimed just seven points from their last six matchups but their recent run includes a draw away to Manchester City and back-to-back wins from their last two games. With Everton having the better form and Spurs claiming home advantage, this could be a tight encounter, so which players are most likely to decide the outcome?

Tottenham skipper Son Heung-Min is the club’s leading scorer this season and he is the favorite to find the net first at best sportsbook odds of 9/2. Richarlison, who has three goals in his last two games, is next at a top price of 13/2. Everton’s lowest figures in the first goalscorer market belong to Dominic Calvert-Lewin who is quoted at a best of 8/1.

Behind the main strikers, Tottenham’s Dejan Kulusevski could be an option at 11/1. The Swede was on target against Manchester City and scored in last week’s win at Nottingham Forest. For Everton, Arnaut Danjuma will want to prove a point against his loan club from last season and he can also be backed at 11/1.

In other side markets, Both Teams to Score is quoted at 8/15 in most places. If you believe that either, or both sides will be shut out in this game, the ‘no’ option on BTTS is on offer at best odds of 6/4.

Total Goals betting is next and a stake Above the 2.5 line will currently attract a top price of 4/7. If you want to push that up one notch, Over 3.5 goals can be backed at 13/10. A solid alternative for those expecting a quiet 90 minutes is to bet Under the 2.5 goal line for a best of 6/4.

Lastly in this section, we’ll consider some Correct Score options. The match odds hint at a victory for Spurs, so the 2-1 home win will attract some interest at best odds of 17/2. The same scoreline in favor of Everton is quoted at a top price of 14/1, while the 1-1 draw can be backed at a best of 8/1.

Our Preview’s THFC vs EFC Predictions & Betting Picks Verdict

At the very least, this game should be tighter than the moneyline market suggests. Everton are one of the form teams in the division and will be confident of claiming a point at worst. Spurs have won their last two games and have looked comfortable in both, but results prior to that run were less than convincing.

One issue for Everton backers concerns their exploits in midweek. While Tottenham were without a fixture, a first choice Toffees team were taken all the way to a penalty shootout by Fulham in the Carabao Cup. Everton ultimately lost the tie, so could there be a fatigue factor on Saturday?

After weighing all these points up, this preview is going to be boring and tip the draw here. Recent form is the key indicator and the sides look very evenly matched.

The team goals markets offer shorter odds this week, so we’re going to consider the anytime goalscorer market instead. Dejan Kulusevski has been encouraged by his manager to provide more of a goal threat and the winger has responded with two goals in his last four games.

Kulusevski is an option at 7/2, but for our betting predictions, this preview is edging towards Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin. As a striker, his return of four goals across 15 games this season is a disappointing one. It could be argued that he is due and that he can rediscover some form against a makeshift Spurs defense. So the betting tips for this EPL game preview look like this:
