The Spurs boast a 4-4-1 record on the road highlighted by 15 goals scored and 8 conceded. Recent form has them in fourth place in the league’s form table behind a 3-2-1 mark in their last six. Their last three outings yield a 2-1-0 mark with five goals scored and just two conceded.

The Spurs are riding a three-game winning streak into match day 20, which includes wins over Southampton, Norwich and Watford, two of which were clean sheets and saw the Spurs outscore their opponents 7-1.

 

Soccer Betting Verdict: By all accounts, this should be a highly-entertaining affair between two attacking minded sides as they go head-to-head on Sunday, all while top half of the table implications riding on the outcome. The Spurs will be looking to win their fourth match in a row, something they’ve not accomplished since 2014 in England’s top flight. The Toffees, meanwhile, will be looking for their first home win since November when they beat basement dwelling Aston Villa 4-0.

Based on the accounts of both teams in the first half of the season, the Spurs certainly emerge as the more constant and solid side with just two losses in 19 games played. Everton, however, can’t be underestimated. Everton’s 35 goals for the season is the second highest tally after Leicester City and Manchester City’s 37. As such, the matchup is billed as an even matchup on the soccer odds board with plenty of angles for profit on both sides of the coin.

For our money, we’re backing the Spurs as the soccer pick to take a step forward in the table with a win in Everton at +163 soccer odds at Bet365.
