Tottenham Hotspur Betting Preview
Hugely impressive for much of last season, Tottenham Hotspur were the only team to apply any pressure on Leicester City over the Premier League run-in before running out of both steam and games.
Mauricio Pochettino has added depth to his squad already over the close season but, with Champions League football on the agenda, another serious crack at the domestic title might be a tough ask for a team that puts in so many miles in every game.
Another top-four finish is a definite possibility, although even money might not be a price deemed worth tying your money up for a season-long bet.
Domestic cup success is likely to depend on how Tottenham fare in the major competitions. An early exit from Europe or were they to be off the pace in the Premier League, then their focus could switch to securing some silverware in the national cup competitions.
Tottenham might not be capable of going all the way in the Champions League but, with a reasonable draw, they will fancy themselves to navigate their way through the group stage and reach the last 16 at least. At 40/1, they could be worth backing with a view to trade on the exchanges at a latter point in the tournament.

Tottenham Hotspur fixtures 2016-17
It looks like a tough looking start to the season for Tottenham away to Everton on Saturday 13th August. That’s followed a week later with Crystal Palace being the visitors to White Hart Lane. Tottenham’s last Premier League match of the season will be a visit to Hull City. The North London derbies are currently scheduled to take place on Saturday 05 November (Emirates Stadium) and Saturday 29th April 2017 (White Hart Lane).
Tottenham Hotspur Betting Tips
It was an excellent campaign for Tottenham overall, but they did seem to run out of steam during the run-in which not only ensured they again finished the season behind Arsenal, but also seemed to carry over into Euro 2016 for some of the club’s England contingent.
Given the running involved in their pressing game, greater squad depth and quality will be required if they are to challenge for honours across the various competitions this season. The signings of Victor Wanyama (whom Pochettino knows from his time at Southampton) and Vincent Janssen provide cover and competition for Eric Dier and Harry Kane in particular, which is certainly required with Tottenham challenging in the Champions League this season.
A couple more additions could yet be forthcoming, with Newcastle United’s Dutch international Georginio Wijnaldum being one reported target (albeit Tottenham are unlikely to do business at the price Newcastle are apparently looking for) and another central defender is also apparently being sought.
There will almost certainly be some pruning of those on the fringes of the first-team too, with the likes of Alex Pritchard, Federico Fazio, Michel Vorm, Nacer Chadli and Tom Carroll all potentially heading for the exit.
