Football expert Ryan Elliott has identified a 3/1 tip for Monday Night Football.
It has to be said that Everton have been really impressive since the Premier League season resumed.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men have looked solid, and have taken seven points off Liverpool, Norwich and Leicester since the restart, which is a really nifty return.
As for Spurs, they undid the all their good work from drawing with Manchester United and beating West Ham by putting in a fairly stinking performance at Bramall Lane against Sheffield United (although they were on the receiving end of a pretty naff VAR decision), and they now have to face the prospect of playing an Everton side who will serious fancy this.
If I’m looking at where the value lies, 3/1 for an Everton win is certainly worth a poke.
We all know by now that the empty stadiums significantly diminishes home advantage, and if we’re purely looking at this from the perspective of which team is more likely to win, the answer has to be Everton.
The only goal the Toffees have conceded since the restart was virtue of a bizarre piece of goalkeeping by Jordan Pickford, and looking at how Sheffield United effectively restricted Spurs in an attacking sense for the vast majority of their game, you do wonder whether the hosts will have another frustrating afternoon in the final third.
In Spurs’ last nine games, spanning pre and post-lockdown, they’ve lost five, drawn three and won just one – which isn’t going to please many fans.
This isn’t the sort of form which will frighten Everton, and on a level playing field, without home fans, there’s simply no way this Toffees side should be 3/1 against Jose Mourinho’s Spurs.
