After the sacking of Jose Mourinho in the 2020/2021 Premier League season and the disharmony of their club captain Harry Kane making it clear that he wants a new challenge, CEO Daniel Levy found himself with a difficult rebuilding job; all this with a tight budget after building their new state-of-the-art Tottenham Stadium. Nuno Espirito Santo, former Wolves boss, has been hired to head this rebuild with Daniel Levy and the odds are stacked against him. After signing only 5 new players for a total of 77 million Euros (some of which are on loan), it’s going to be an uphill battle to get back into the Champions League, not helped by the distraction of the new Europa League.
Tottenham’s Tactics, Principles and Style of play
Tottenham Hotspur now have new signings to replace some of the old guard having seen Toby Alderweireld leave, with Atalanta’s Cristian Romero to replace him. Nuno Santo is a good Premier League manager by all accounts but there are concerns that he will not be able to get this team firing in the right way. At Wolves, he experienced much success taking on the “Underdog Role”, where his Wolves teams would record impressive wins against the top sides. Much of the frustration for the fans under Mourinho was that the tactics would be too defensive and there’s nothing to suggest that Nuno would change that all too much. Nonetheless, one could argue that this could favour this Spurs team because they do have players whose skillsets can exploit teams on the counter and in transition.
Tottenham Odds to win Premier League Predictions
This season, Tottenham Hotspur has seen instability creep in with Harry Kane wanting to leave and making it so public. Despite finishing last season 7th, qualifying for the Europa Conference League, Spurs will be hoping to qualify in the lucrative Champions League spots this season. Spurs also have the distraction of the Europa Conference League to content with which will affect their Premier League performance since their squad wasn’t sufficiently bolstered during the summer transfer window.

The unlikeliness of Spurs winning the league informs Bet365’s 200/1 odds as well. It just goes to show that it would be highly unlikely that they win the Premier League with the challenges that they face.
Tottenham odds to win FA Cup and Predictions
Tottenham Hotspur are currently a cup team at best. Cup teams are usually ones that have individual quality in certain players who are match winners, especially on form but also teams that as a collective have no consistency. Essentially, this means that over the course of the season in the league, they will generally struggle to string a few wins together. Over a cup run, they may experience more success even when playing some of the bigger favourites. Considering all you’ve read so far, it will be no surprise to see Tottenham’s FA Cup odds are more favourable than their Premier League odds.

As is the case, Bet365 has slapped betting odds of 12/2 on Spurs winning the oldest trophy in football history, the FA Cup. Tottenham Hotspur is unlikely to win the competition, with their highest possible finish probably quarter-final or semi-final place.
Tottenham winner odds of League Cup:
The League Cup, or the Carabao Cup also poses the same challenges for Tottenham Hotspur except for the fact that the competition itself has been primarily used by the bigger Premier League teams to rest their star players to avoid injury and fatigue. This makes it harder to predict than the FA Cup but also poses an easier challenge for Tottenham to try and win it. It is the last competitive trophy that the club has won, all the way back in 2008 under Juan De Ramos when they beat Chelsea.
Here, Bet365 has given them better odds of winning the competition with 7/2 odds to break their 14 year trophy-less drought.
