Tottenham betting (2020 updated)
Though the Spurs have been near the top of the league standings for over a decade now, the past few years are marked by a downward trend. Ever since they were runners-up in the 2016/17 season, each year saw them drop down a spot or two. Granted, they had some successes in their international adventures, but the trend is palpable. For now, it all culminated in a 6th placement for the 2019/20 season – 2 spots down from the one before that.
Taken at face value, though, 6th place is far from a catastrophe. Based purely on outright Premier League betting odds, they are the 4th team most likely to snatch the title. On the flip side, the odds are still a hefty 17.00, so maybe To Win Outright may not be the right market. Perhaps the best balance would be a Top 4 Finish at odds of 2.60. After all, they recorded a Top 4 Finish in every season between 2015 and 2019.
Tottenham Key Players
The Spurs’ lineup is generally balanced across the pitch, though we may notice that their attacks are met with more success than their defence. As a point of reference, the 61 goals they scored last season were above-average compared to some other teams. However, the 47 conceded goals are among the worst on the upper half of the table.
A quick look at their roster explains this quite easily. Their best players are generally strikers and forwards, such as the fan-favourite Harry Kane, winger Heung-min Son, attacking midfielder Dele Alli, and so on.
To address this, Mourinho made a few valuable deals to bolster their defensive line. Examples include Real Madrid side Sergio Reguilón, defensive midfielder Pierre-Emile Höjbjerg, and the Wolves’ Matt Doherty. All in all, an excess of €80 million was spent on making the Tottenham roster more diverse and balanced, which may signal good things for the upcoming season.
However, the most notable summer signing – at least from a fan’s perspective – will have been the return of Gareth Bale. The Welshman is back in London on loan from Real Madrid and will be looking to resurrect his career with the Spurs.
As a club based in the nation’s capital, Tottenham have great rivalries with all clubs from London. However, some of these get more pronounced than others, which can also depend on the current form and results.
Nevertheless, the two biggest prevail and overcome the test of time, form and results – against Chelsea and Arsenal. Chelsea and Tottenham have never considered each other primary rivals but their matches usually produce plenty of stick between the two sets of supporters. This rivalry dates back to the 1967 FA Cup final. The most notable match in the more recent time, however, occurred in 2018 when previously mentioned Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli brought Tottenham their first win at Stamford Bridge in over 28 years.
On the other side, the North London derby is one o the most important matches in the Premier League calendar. Tottenham and Arsenal have never seen eye to eye and their animosity has been well documented in football history books. Matches such as Tottenham’s 5-0 away win in 1983 and a number of others have done their fair share in shaping this derby into one of the fiercest and most famous matches in European football.
The original name of the club formed by a group of schoolboys in 1882 was Hotspur Football Club. Two years later, the North London club was renamed into Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, the name we know Spurs under today.
Tottenham are two-time league champions. While they have yet to lift the Premier League trophy, they won the league titles back in 1950/51 and 1960/61 when it was called First Division. Additionally, the Spurs boast eight FA Cup titles and four League Cup trophies. The London-based side is a well-established name in European circles as well. Tottenham won the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1962/63, while also winning the UEFA Cup on two occasions – in 1971/72 and 1983/84.
The club has a vast fan base structure. From a historical point of view, Tottenham have always had a large Jewish following. It stems out from the Jewish communities living in the east and north London in 1930s. At the time, no less than one-third of Tottenham’s supporters were Jewish. The Spurs fans identify themselves as a “Yid Army”, using the controversial word as a form of self-identification, aiming to defuse the anti-Semitic elements behind it.
