After putting a run of four top-flight defeats in five home matches to bed by beating Everton 2-1 at White Hart Lane, Spurs will be brought back down to earth with a merciless bump when they travel to Premier League leaders Chelsea, who are 2/5 to win at Stamford Bridge.
Considering Jose Mourinho’s men have claimed victory in all six of their top-flight home games this term, that bet looks safe, but the newly-invigorated Lilywhites are a cracking price at 17/20 to claim over 8.5 Premier League points in December nonetheless.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men have been quietly building a run of form in recent weeks, with eight wins from their last 11 matches all told, which included three victories in four top-flight outings during November.
This run has dragged Spurs up from 11th to seventh in the table, and there are ample opportunities for Pochettino and co to turn the heat up under their top-six rivals before the year is out.
After the trip to Stamford Bridge, Spurs host a Crystal Palace side who can boast of just one road victory in the top flight this term, and have only managed to beat a Liverpool side in crisis over their past seven fixtures.
Swansea away follows the Eagles visit, where the Argentine gaffer will be confident of at least a draw, having presided over just one league loss on his travels in six games as Lilywhites boss (at Manchester City), with his side winning each of their past two such fixtures by two goals to one.
Next up after that at White Hart Lane is a Burnley outfit with only one away win in the Premier League under Sean Dyche, before the trip to Leicester, who have now gone eight Premier League games without victory, losing six of those.
By the time Manchester United hit north London for Spurs’ last game of the year, this bet should have copped with a bit to spare.
