Tottenham Hotspur, usually referred to simply as Spurs, are an English Premier League team based in north London. Spurs have won English soccer’s top flight division title twice, although not since the 1960-61 season.
Spurs have come a long way in recent seasons, partly due to the influence of their excellent manager Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentinian has forged a team that is young, plays exciting soccer and that has several key players for the England national team in it.
After finishing third in 2015-16, Spurs finished second in 2016-17 before a third-place finish last season and reached the Round of 16 of the Champions League. Harry Kane once again excelled in a Spurs shirt and scored 41 goals in all competitions to finish as Tottenham’s top scorer for the fourth consecutive season.
Last season, Spurs bought a handful of players to improve their squad and to replace players who left for pastures new, but Pochettino has not signed a single player in the summer due to having no funds available as Spurs are currently building a new state-of-the-art stadium on the site of their White Hart Lane ground.
This lack of investment will almost certainly result in Spurs not mounting a serious title challenge, although a top four finish is not out of the realms of possibility. Much will depend on keeping their star players from leaving the club and keeping the likes of Kane fit for as many games as possible as the Spurs squad lacks the strength in depth of some of their rivals.

How To Win Tottenham Bets
Tottenham are one of the most exciting Premier League teams to watch if you are a fan of soccer because Mauricio Pochettino sets his teams up to win games through free flowing attacking soccer.
Spurs have one of the best goalkeepers in the world and a solid central defensive pairing in front of him, backed up by flying full backs who help turn defense into attack in the blink of an eye. The Tottenham midfield homes the likes of Mousa Dembele, Erik Lamela, Dele Alli and Danish sensation Christian Eriksen while Harry Kane leads the line backed up by South Korea’s Son Heung-min.
The biggest issue Tottenham have is their lack of depth in their squad. While Son is a top player, he is no direct replacement for Kane should the England captain get injured or suspended. Kane has scored 114 goals in 162 Premier League appearances and is irreplaceable. Factor this in when you are betting on Spurs because without Kane they are nowhere near as good as with him in the squad.
Last season, Tottenham averaged 1.95 goals per game and conceded 0.95 per game. They only failed to score in four of their games and were only involved in a single 0-0 draw. Games featuring Spurs had an average of 2.89 goals per game with 7 percent having over 1.5 goals and 45 percent having over 2.5 goals. However, only 37 percent of Tottenham’s home games had over 2.5 goals, mostly due to Spurs’ solid defence.
