Tottenham Backed For Top Four Revival Under Antonio Conte
Antonio Conte is already being backed to revive Tottenham’s fortunes in the Premier League after he signed an 18-month deal at the North London club.
The Italian was confirmed as the new man in the Spurs dugout on Tuesday after Nuno Espirito Santo was sacked in the wake of their 3-0 home defeat to Manchester United on Saturday, leaving them with just 15 points and nine goals from their opening ten league matches.
But Tottenham’s chances of guaranteeing themselves Champions League football next season by finishing in the top four have already been backed into 5/1 from 8/1
…ahead of Conte’s first match at the helm.
The former Chelsea boss is a 6/1 shot to hit the ground running by winning his first three matches in charge, with Vitesse Arnhem first up in the Europa Conference League before league matches away at Everton and at home to Leeds.
The betting suggests the League Cup is his best shot at silverware in his first campaign as Tottenham have shortened into 13/2 from 15/2 to win the first trophy up for grabs this season, but some patient punters are already looking further ahead as the 40/1 about them landing their first league title next season since 1961 has now been trimmed into 33/1.
Bet on Football.
