Betting on Everton (+230)
Everton have had a pretty tough start to the season. After beating Stoke in the opener, they drew with Man City and lost to Chelsea. And now, they will complete the trifecta of playing the top-3 teams from last season when they face Tottenham.
The Toffees will be without Ross Barkley, who has stayed despite multiple rumors linking him to a transfer away from the club. ‘Keeper Jordan Pickford, defender Mason Holgate, and midfielder Davy Klaassen are also doubts to feature against Tottenham.
However, they will have star striker Wayne Rooney, who has scored in two of his first three games, even after getting charged with drunk driving earlier this week. Midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin is also back from suspension and should slide back into the heart of midfield.
Everton had the fourth-best home record last season at 13-4-2 with 42 goals scored and just 16 conceded. They have also lost just once to Tottenham at home since 2007 (three wins, six draws).
Betting on Tottenham Hotspur (+102)
Tottenham’s troubles at Wembley have continued early on this season. While their loss to Chelsea is understandable, their draw against Burnley was disappointing.
Their lone win to date has come away from home against Newcastle. Dating back to last season, Spurs have now won six of their last seven away games. Getting all three points at Goodison Park will be a tough task, though, as Spurs’ sketchy record over the years at Merseyside shows.
Tottenham will be without starters Danny Rose and Victor Wanyama for their upcoming visit. New signings Serge Aurier and Fernando Llorente will also be doubtful to make their respective debuts.
But on the bright side, the calendar has turned to September, which means Harry Kane’s August hoodoo will be over for another year. Kane remains goalless this season, but he scored the winner in Tottenham’s lone road win in the last decade against Everton back in 2015.
