Tottenham vs Everton Premier League Predictions

Premier League Tottenham vs Everton
Tottenham vs Everton Premier Premier League

The match is over.
Score: 2-2.

This was another fixture that a few weeks ago could’ve had so much riding on it but thanks to results elsewhere – a baring a catastrophic collapse from Spurs – Tottenham will be in the Champions League next season and Everton will miss out on a place in next season’s Europa League.

Predictions

Given the form of these two sides you wouldn’t be foolish to back an away win for this one but at home on the final day of the season where they should clinch a place in the top four, you can’t back against Spurs.

Despite winning just three games in the Premier League since the start of April, Spurs have somehow managed to cling on to a place in the top four and a draw would confirm their place for the season.

Everton’s recent run of only two losses since February 6th has seen them leap up the table to 8th place, but dropped points against Crystal Palace and Fulham mean they miss out on Europa League football.

Spurs’ recent poor form has seen them lose to Manchester City, Southampton, West Ham, Liverpool and Bournemouth and losing in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final against Ajax.

The visitors’ away record is quite poor with five wins and nine losses, failing to win on their last four trips to London.

On form Everton will be favourites but you’d still fancy Spurs to win or at least get a point to seal their Champions League campaign next season, so maybe a 2-1 Spurs win wouldn’t be the worst bet to back.

Betting Tips

You’d imagine that with the attacking players that are on show in this game that both teams will find the back of the net at some point – 888sport have it as 13/5 when combined with the Spurs win. Everton have enough firepower to trouble Spurs and while Tottenham are missing Heung Min Son and Harry Kane, you’d still expect Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Lucas Moura to find the back of the net.

These are long odds for something that doesn’t seem too outrageous yet is being treated like it is. Home advantage should significantly shift the momentum in this game in Tottenham’s favour and the scoreline being level at the break before the London club break the scoreline – expecting it be to 1-1 at this point – in the second half is a likely outcome, rated at 19/5 by 888sport.
