Despite not having won the English First Division league title since 1961, Tottenham Hotspur remain one of the biggest teams in English football and the wider European sphere.
Spurs continue to be very much in contention across the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup in England and in Antonio Conte, they have one of the best managers in the world at the helm.
As with any football betting market or team, each match presents an opportunity for punters to increase their bankroll and pick up winnings. In 2022, Tottenham like many other clubs will see their season disturbed by the FIFA World Cup in Qatar and with many Spurs players expected to be participating in the tournament, it will be a seismic event in football and at Tottenham Hotspur.
Much like the Premier League, FIFA World Cup betting odds will provide an opportunity for punters across the 64 matches in 28 days, with 32 teams looking to prize the trophy away from defending champions France in the Qatari heat.
Spurs fans will be all too quick to explain how betting on Tottenham can often be somewhat of a poisoned chalice, with Tottenham having a habit of producing extraordinary results from winning and losing positions.
Moving to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in 2019 has given the club a real kick into the 21st Century, as they moved away from the iconic but archaic White Hart Lane and the club has the infrastructure to compete at the highest level for generations to come.
Currently though, that nod to the future is of little consolation to Tottenham fans, who haven’t won a major trophy since 2008, where they won the League Cup under Juande Ramos and despite many finals and nearly moments, Spurs haven’t been able to put silverware in the cabinet.
Some of the great modern-day managers such as Harry Redknapp and Mauricio Pochettino, have tried but ultimately failed to bring success to Spurs, an issue serial winner Antonio Conte is looking to address in the not too distant future.
Here is a rundown of some of the Tottenham betting markets that are available to punters:
- Premier League pain – Despite never having been relegated from the Premier League since its inception in 1992, Tottenham have seldom looked to be in a position to win the Premier League title. Leicester City pipped Spurs to the triumph in their now infamous title win back in 2016 but other than that, Tottenham haven’t really looked like sustaining a whole season challenge.
Antonio Conte has been brought in by Tottenham’s no nonsense owner Daniel Levy to address that gap but the Italian looks to have his work cut out to keep pace with the likes of Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool.
- Domestic Cup Challenge – For many, it is hard to comprehend that Tottenham haven’t won a domestic cup in England since 2008 and of all the challenges ahead for a very talented Spurs side, clinching a trophy will enable the club to kick on to the next phase. Both the FA Cup and League Cup present realistic opportunities for Tottenham to break their duck every season and how the fans would love a trip to Wembley to taste some recent success.
- Backing Tottenham in the outright winner market for both the League Cup and FA Cup at the start of the season can yield some excellent ante-post odds, whilst as the competition progresses the odds of Tottenham winning it will shorten but they remain one of the key sides to back for punters.
- European Glory – Like many English sides, Tottenham are yet to win the Champions League (or Europa League for that matter) and their run to the final of the Champions League in 2019 remains one of the great stories of recent times. Spurs ultimately came up short to Liverpool in Madrid under Mauricio Pochettino but they have established themselves as a force in European football in the subsequent seasons.
Qualifying for the Champions League through Premier League position has always been a priority for Tottenham and finishing in the top 4 more consistently is another challenge they have stepped up to.
Backing Tottenham to go all the way in the Champions League is a longer shot but there are subsidiary markets such as ‘Tottenham to reach the knockout stages’ or ‘Tottenham to win their Champions League group’.
- Individual Brilliance – Much of Tottenham’s recent success has coincided with the emergence of England captain Harry Kane and South Korean starlet Son Heung-min. Spurs are hugely reliant on both players and their goals and assist tallies are very impressive.
Backing either player for the Golden Boot or Top Assist maker at the start of the season or competition can be a very lucrative bet for punters, with both players so prolific in every game or tournament they play.
