Everton vs Spurs Betting Preview

By Ernie Bibby, Thursday, February 1, 2024 12:01 am

Spurs will be hoping to do the double over Everton as they make the trip to Goodison Park on Saturday lunchtime. This game kicks off at 12:30pm UK time. 



Although Everton were initially galvanised by their ten point deduction, the Toffees have subsequently slipped back into old ways and they are now winless in five. Sean Dyche’s side have failed to score in any of their last three matches despite the presence of Dominic Calvert-Lewin and they need to find a way of converting their chances. Despite playing out a 0-0 draw with Fulham in midweek, the game contained 44 shots in total and although the Merseysiders rode their luck at times, they always looked dangerous moving forward. In fact, across Europe’s top five leagues, only Bayern Munich and Barcelona are guilty of missing more big chances than Dyche’s men.

Dyche must also find a way to improve his side’s home performances. The Toffees have been far more effective on their travels this season and they have amassed just 11 points in front of their own fans so far. Nevertheless, only Manchester City and Manchester United have beaten them here since the end of September and for all of their issues in the final third, the hosts will be suitably well-organised.

Ben Godfrey’s return to the XI was important and the defender was vital in preserving the club’s clean sheet on Tuesday night. He is likely to keep his place in the side alongside Jarrad Branthwaite. Arnaut Danjuma picked up a knock at Craven Cottage and he will be assessed ahead of this weekend’s contest.



Spurs returned to fourth spot with a victory over Brentford at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. It wasn’t all plain sailing for the hosts with the Bees having an early goal chalked off before taking the lead in the first half.

Ange Postecoglu’s side didn’t look particularly effective in the first half, however, a double change at the break seemed to do the trick with the introduction of Brennan Johnson adding some much-needed dynamism to their forward line. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg also added a little bit of calm in the centre of the park and Spurs eventually wrestled back control in the second half.

Despite the result, Postecoglu appeared to be frustrated by some of his side’s decision making in the final third with Dejan Kulesevski’s decision to pick out a teammate rather than fire in an goalbound effort clearly distressing the Aussie coach.

Spurs have lost just one of their last seven and their mid-season wobble is now firmly behind them. Their matches remain hugely entertaining and they are always likely to score goals. The North Londoners have netted 2+ in each of their last seven and in eight of their last nine.

Postecoglu’s style does tend to leave his side exposed at the back and they always concede plenty of chances. They’ve managed just a single clean sheet since October 23rd, although that did come away from home.

They’ve only actually won one of their last five away matches (vs Forest) and if they have any ambitions of gatecrashing the top three, they will need to improve their form on their travels. This looks like a good opportunity to collect maximum points.


Head to Head

Spurs possess an excellent recent record against the Toffees and they’ll be looking to extend their unbeaten run on Saturday lunchtime. They’ve been victorious in three of the last four meetings and were 2-1 winners earlier in the campaign. We’ve talking about Everton’s goalscoring issues and having failed to score in three of their last five meetings with Spurs, they’ll be hoping to avoid yet another blank.

December 9th 2012 was the last time that Everton collected maximum points against this opposition at Goodison Park. The hosts had to do it from behind that day with goals from Steven Pineaar and Niko Jelavic giving them a 2-1 victory.

BTTS is a regular occurence when these sides meet at this venue and it has landed in seven of the last nine.


Key Betting Stats

  • Spurs’ last six away games have contained a total of 24 goals
  • Spurs have scored 2+ goals in nine of their 11 away games so far
  • 30% of the goals that Spurs have conceded this season have been shipped after the 80th minute.
  • 50% of Spurs’ matches this season have contained a total of either three or four goals
  • Everton have kept a clean sheet in four of their last seven home matches
  • 65% of the goals scored in Everton matches have come in the second half.


Match Prediction

Everton are creating chances, but they aren’t neccessarily putting them away. Spurs are always able to find a way through, however, they are always liable to concede and this could be the end of the hosts’ barren spell. Expect another entertaining one.
