When you have two teams that are capable of producing the kind of quality football as Everton and Tottenham and you throw them together, there’s a very good chance you’re going to be in for some very exciting football. That’s especially true when you add to that mix the fact that we are starting to head into the later stages of the 2018/19 Premier League, and both are itching to surpass what they’ve managed in previous years.
Everton have recently impressed against the likes of Newcastle, Watford, Liverpool and Chelsea, but didn’t always reap the rewards of their efforts. Meanwhile, Spurs have been knocking out great matches with astonishing consistency. The clock is indeed ticking, and for these two Premier Leagues heavyweights, the time is now.
Everton vs Tottenham Hotspur Prediction: Everton 1-3 Spurs
When you look at Everton’s most recent set of results, it may surprise you that that the betting odds don’t favour their opponents even more heavily. However, this is in large due to the performances behind the scoreline, which have often left fans feeling like the Toffees have had a bit of bad luck lately. And there may be some truth in that.
However, the best of the best do overcome bad luck and Everton have failed to do that, while Tottenham have impressed far more consistently. With that in mind, our scoreline prediction is a 3-1 win for Tottenham.
Our recommended tip: Spurs win and both score
Tottenham are the favourites coming into this contest, with the away side enjoying a 42% win probability to Everton’s 29%. The bookmaker odds reflect this advantage, with Paddy Power giving Tottenham match odds of 6/5 compared to the home team’s 11/5. As we have pointed out in our predicted scoreline though, we do expect Everton to manage a goal during the contest. Therefore, our recommended tip is to go slightly higher risk and increase your potential ROI by wagering on a Tottenham result and both teams to score bet to get odds of 11/4 from the bookmaker.
The history between Everton and Tottenham Hotspur is one of two different stories. The overall picture shows us that these two have faced each other many times over a century and more, without either of them coming away with a serious statistical advantage. This is good news for underdogs Everton.
However, things change when it comes to recent matches, in which Spurs very clearly hold the advantage, having most recently beat Everton 4-0 in 2018 and 3-0 in 2017. Before that, you have to go way back to 2012 to find a Toffees win. When it comes to indicators for this game, the signs point towards a Tottenham victory.

Players to watch: Richarlison & Son Heung-min
Purchased from Watford for £50 million, Richarlison has made it his mission to silence the doubters who questioned his high price tag, becoming the most prolific striker this season on Everton’s books. Despite failing to draw blood against Manchester United, we’re looking forward to him testing his skills against a team with the quality of Spurs. Even more exciting about Richarlison is his constant improvement, meaning the sky is the limit for this young striker
Tottenham Hotspur: Son Heung-min
As strange as it seems now, Son Heung-min seemed to be heading out the door during the 2016/17 season, dissatisfied at a lack of playing time. Today, he is one of their most valuable assets, with his skills being showcased recently in Tottenham’s brilliant 2-0 Carabao Cup quarter-final win over Arsenal. To stand out in an all-star team like Spurs is no easy task, but Son Heung-min has more than proven his worth over the last few seasons. We can’t wait to see him reach new heights in the future.
