spurs v everton

been happily watching my team win plenty and stroll along in the upper echelons but am aware that like every season before, they will no doubt chuck in a dodgy spell and come a cropper more than once when things are going so well

everton at home could be that game - king missing is the biggest problem as it has been sorely under-noted how much influence he has on this team; with him they hardly ever lose, without him they often lose.. simple fact but no king is a big big worrry

add to that some other recent injuries such as parker (probably unfit) and gallas and sandro and suddenly it's looking a bit of a lightweight spurs team that will no doubt start as hot favs

everton have been under the radar this season but have been ok away from home - they have picked up 4 wins and only lost by 2 at chelsea and city and 1 at arsenal... thus, you would think they could nick a 1-1 draw here as spurs have scored in every game for donkey's now (runs have to end!) and the visitors are capable of exploiting any holes in the spurs defence

spurs have won 7of their last 8 home games with the other being a 1-1 draw with chelsea - their home form has been excellent for a long time now and I doubt everton will win as thfc seem to have eradicated those daft home defeats that they suffered in the last few yrs (wigan wolves etc)

but can't help thinking this will be tricky and a lay of spurs at 1.62 looks a decent move; alternatively, everton +1 on the asian handicap is 1.89 which gives you a good return if they avoid defeat (and money back if they just lose by a goal)

9 of the last 11 meetings have resulted in the home team not winning this fixture / everton have won 3 and drawn 1 of their last 5 visits here in the EPL / this fixture has a history of both doing well at the opposing ground

risky game for spurs and 1-1 correct score bet being sensible
