Side with Spurs each-way in outright PL betting
Spurs each-way look very much like a value punt on Premier League title odds after another impressive victory.
Tottenham have now won seven league games on the spin, and their latest breathless 4-0 romp over West Bromwich Albion starred Harry Kane.
There’s still the small matter of a seven-point gap on Premier League leaders Chelsea to bridge for Spurs, but they’re value for second place.
Kane top scorer odds slashed
Hat-trick hero Kane’s exploits not only moved him into contention to be top scorer at best bets of 3/1 with several bookies, including Betfair, but took Tottenham second in the table.
England full backs Kyle Walker and Danny Rose, playing with the freedom afforded by having three centre halves behind them, ran riot on the flanks.
Dele Alli, unlucky not to extend his own rampant scoring sequence, caught the eye again too in support of Spurs striker Kane.
Premier League title odds fully justified
Mauricio Pochettino has firmly established Tottenham’s title credentials, and BetVictor go a best-price 8/1 in the outright betting.
A third of that price is available if backing Spurs each-way and they do finish as runners-up.
Punters cannot afford to let those Premier League title odds be cut again, so snap them up now.
Man City left stuck by Toffees
If England’s current hot prospects starred as Tottenham battered the Baggies, there was a nod to the future at Goodison Park.
Everton, in Pep Guardiola’s mind at least, ended the title chances of Manchester City.
Belgium boys Romelu Lukaku and Kevin Mirallas struck either side of half-time to put the Toffees in command.
Clever Koeman wins battle of old Barcelona teammates
Ronald Koeman then saw Everton academy graduate Tom Davies grab his first senior goal and winter window signing Ademola Lookman netted on his debut off the bench.
Now as long as 16/1 with Betway for the title, Man City must regroup. Chelsea’s lead of 10 points over them does look a huge ask.
In fact, provided Koeman gets further investment in his squad, there’s more to like about a 14/1 punt on a top six finish for the Toffees with Paddy Power.
The kids are all right
Should England youth players Davies in midfield and Ademola in attack build on their most recent displays, though, he might not need new signings.
Mature performances from these youngsters not only sent a message to Everton’s wealthy investors, but bodes well for the future.
Koeman got just the sort of clinical response he was looking for from the Toffees after the FA Cup third round exit.
Pep was a rolling Stones
Guardiola’s ball-playing centre back John Stones continues to make high-profile mistakes. The one time he went to clear into row Z at Goodison, it resulted in Lookman’s goal.
Returning to his former club, Stones’ decision making still leaves a lot to be desired.
He can no longer be under any illusions. Man City is the toughest job of Guardiola’s career.
Lesson in finishing
“In the bad moments we have to be close,” he told the BBC in the wake of the 4-0 Everton defeat.
“It’s awful for my players. We created chances, but don’t score and when they have a chance, they punish us.”
A clinical Toffees outfit scored with all four of their shots on target against Man City.
Launchpad for Everton
It’s a result which, if built upon, can be a springboard for the rest of Everton’s season.
Man City must go back to the drawing board, with their Premier League title challenge in tatters.
Chelsea and others won’t mind the Etihad outfit being out of contention too much.
