Everton v Tottenham Betting Tips:It has been a very solid season from Roberto Martinez’s Everton so far. They have only suffered the one defeat this season and that was on the road. At Goodison Park, they opened with a draw against West Brom, and have since posted three wins on the trot, including a 1-0 win over Chelsea. There trend in all three of the wins is that the victories have come by a one goal winning margin. If you fancy that to continue on Sunday, then you can get odds of 4/1 for Everton To Win By a 1 Goal Margin. It may not be a bad shout. The Toffees have taken 28 points from their last 10 Premier League home matches now. So teams don’t get a lot out of Everton at Goodison. They look very good in all areas of the pitch and stars of the show going forward have been Kevin Mirallas (who has a league-high four assists this season) and Romelu Lukaku who has fired in five goals and has made one assist in five matches for Everton this season. He makes a solid shot in the Anytime Goalscorer market for odds of 6/4 with Stan James.
Everton won this corresponding fixture 2-1 last season and they have won the last three in a row at home against Spurs. In fact, they are unbeaten in their last six on home turf against the London side, so they have that on their side as well. Everton have scored five more goals than Spurs have done this season. It has been the defensive efforts of Tottenham which has seen them push up into the top four. Andre Villas-Boas’s men are the lowest scoring side in the top nine, but do have the second best defensive record. They struggled to break down a resilient Hull City at White Hart Lane last time out, needing a spot kick from Roberto Soldado to make the breakthrough in a 1-0 win. Spurs haven’t conceded a goal in their last two matches now and on the road they have been pretty solid, winning three of their four, the other match a defeat coming at the Emirates against Arsenal.
They just haven’t been as clinical as they should be in the final third of the pitch. Spurs have won four of their games this season by a 1-0 Scoreline (up at odds of 8/1 with Stan James to happen again in the Correct Score market). The Lilywhites only lost two of their first 15 Premier league games at Goodison Park, but they have not managed to win any of their last six there (D3 L3). You have to go all the way back to 1984 to find the last time that Spurs scored more than twice at Goodison Park. Spurs have the talent to ping the ball around nicely, and they have played more long passes than any other side in the top flight this term. But they haven’t been able to find that balance up front to convert possession into a high goal return. Spurs haven’t conceded a goal to a non-London side in the Premier League this season. So will Spurs have the punch up front to get the better of the Toffees? Would consider a low scoring game at under 2.5 goals for odds of 4/5. The Toffees do look good value in this one, with Romelu Lukaku likely to be the match winner.
PredictionEverton perhaps have the better balance of the two sides, and should give Tottenham a real stern test here. They have a little more to offer going forward and would just bank on a home win for good value at 6/4 with Stan James.
