Everton v Tottenham betting tips: Blues test in Conte’s Premier League opener
Everton v Tottenham betting tips and odds
Antonio Conte gets his first taste of Premier League football since being appointed Tottenham manager as he takes his new charges to Everton on Sunday.
Conte’s first game in charge was a chaotic affair containing five first-half goals and three red cards as Spurs moved up to second place in their Europa Conference League group with a 3-2 victory over Vitesse on Thursday night.
The visitors are 7/5 favourites to beat the struggling Toffees but let’s examine some of the other options in our Everton v Tottenham betting tips.
The shackles were well and truly off this week as the boring football under the now departed Nuno Espirito Santo gave way to a thrill-a-minute adventure with former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss Conte at the helm.
The Italian, though, was far from happy with what he saw and demanded time to bring his ideas to his new charges.
He said: “People who know me very well know that I don’t like this type of crazy game. I want a stable team, when there’s a possibility to kill the opponent, you must kill.”

Injury-hit Everton have lost their last three matches and remain without Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Abdoulaye Doucoure, but Richarlison started his first game since mid-September in Monday’s 2-1 defeat at Wolves, so hope is on the horizon.
Rafael Benitez’s side are 2/1 to win this match which has produced plenty of goal-laden games in recent years, the last two ending in score draws which is priced at 16/5, while an away win and both teams to score has been boosted from 7/2 to 9/2.
Last season, the Blues beat Spurs 5-4 in a thrilling FA Cup fifth-round tie and the Premier League match ended 2-2, so we make four goals or more 12/5 as one of our Everton v Tottenham betting tips.
Conte played three at the back in a 3-4-3 with Harry Kane supported by Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura in attack.
Eric Dier was at the heart of defence, accompanied by Ben Davies and Cristian Romero, who was sent off in the second half for a second yellow.
First win in the bag. 🎒

Oliver Skipp and Pierre-Emile Hojberg were in central midfield, with Emerson Royal on the right and Sergio Reguilon on the left.
Benitez went with a 4-4-2 at Wolves where Demarai Gray played in attack with Richarlison, while Jean-Philippe Gbamin made only his second Premier League start in three seasons with the Toffees, but was replaced by Fabian Delph at half-time.
Spurs’ seemingly gung-ho approach to Thursday’s game means Kane is the 7/2 favourite to get the ball rolling, 7/5 to score and 15/2 to net a double, all of which he did in last season’s fixture.
Richarlison is 5/1 to bag the game’s first goal and 21/10 to score, while Gray can be backed at 6/1 and 5/2 in our Everton v Tottenham betting tips.
