Premier League aficionados are finally taking a Tottenham title bid seriously after Mauricio Pochettino’s side’s faultless Xmas schedule, so much so that the Lilywhites go into their match away to Everton as ever-so-slight 13/8 favourites.
That’s a bet to be on going by current form, as Roberto Martinez’s men are winless in their past three home fixtures, losing their last two in 3-2 and 4-3 thrillers against Leicester and Stoke.
Despite the best efforts of striker Romelu Lukaku, who has bagged 11 goals in his past 10 games for the Toffees, Everton currently languish in 11th, nine points behind their next opponents.
Spurs, on the other hand, have lost just once in the Premier League since going down 1-0 to Manchester United on the first weekend of the campaign, and go in to this match off the back of three wins on the spin, including away to in-form Watford last time out.
Having taken four points from their past couple of visits to Goodison Park, the blue half of Merseyside will hold little fear for captain Hugo Lloris and co. Expect them to keep up the good work.
The bookies also roll out their Double Odds 1st Goalscorer offer for this televised clash, meaning you’ll get twice the price if your pick breaks the deadlock within the first 25 minutes.
Dele Alli is proving to be the find of the season so far, with four goals and four assists already from the 19-year-old, who’ll surely start England’s European Championship campaign as first choice midfielder.
Alli bagged a 15th-minute opener at the start of last month away to West Brom. With Ladbrokes’ offer in play, the same again at 8/1 looks fair.
The bookies have also enhanced Harry Kane to score and Spurs to win to 3/1 (was 11/4), while Lukaku to score in an Everton win gets the same boost.
