Tottenham Hotspur are embarking on their first full season under the management of Antonio Conte, and they remain in the hunt for a top-four Premier League finish. Get the latest Tottenham betting odds here.
Tottenham Top Four Finish odds
When Conte took over as Tottenham manager in November 2021, the north London side were ninth in the Premier League, five points behind fourth-placed West Ham and in danger of falling down the table.
They had been struggling under Nuno Espirito Santo and failed to build on their 1-0 win over Manchester City on the opening weekend, part of a three-match winning run (all by a 1-0 scoreline). Tottenham went unbeaten in Conte’s nine Premier League matches which included a 2-2 draw against Liverpool and six wins, until a defeat to Chelsea started a rough patch.
Four defeats in five Premier League matches gave Conte his first rocky period at Tottenham, combined with exits in the EFL Cup and FA Cup, but the Italian did still manage to beat Man City 3-2 at the Etihad Stadium to complete the league double started by Santo. Tottenham would eventually overcome the wobble to win 10 of their final 14 Premier League matches, securing fourth-placed ahead of rivals Arsenal.
It has meant a return to the Champions League for Tottenham after two seasons out, first having to contest the Europa League before being in the inaugural Europa Conference League in 2021/22. They face AC Milan in the round of 16 starting on Tuesday night at the San Siro.
In respect to this season’s top-four race, Spurs have blown hot and cold far too often to be considered a shoo-in for Champions League retention. A recent 4-1 capitulation to Leicester underlined their inconsistency issues after they worked so hard to once again beat City 1-0 at home the game prior.

That East Midlands mauling really has illuminated the soft underbelly of Conte’s team, who have now lost eight games this season, more than any other team in the top half of the table. An even bigger concern was perhaps the debut performance of Pedro Porro, who was torn to ribbons by Harvey Barnes, much to the chagrin of Sky Sports pundit and former Spurs manager Tim Sherwood.
“I don’t want to keep picking on the kid but he needs to be relieved of his duties at the moment,” Sherwood said.
“I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt because it’s his debut but Pedro Porro is so bad it’s unbelievable.
“His positioning is disgusting, Barnes and Maddison are destroying him down the left hand side.
“He’s just ran inside him, he hasn’t even seen him, he gets the ball played in and lets him run inside him.”
The 54-year-old then redirected his indignation towards Daniel Levy and the recruitment strategy currently in place by the club.
He added: “Daniel Levy said this week they’ve spent a lot of money, yes they have, but their recruitment has been very, very poor and this is the latest addition.
“Let’s not make any conclusions yet, but what I’m looking at is a player who doesn’t want to defend, Conte has complained about the defending and this player is struggling to defend, very disappointing.
“I’ve seen him play before, he looks like a decent player going forward, but if you want someone to defend…”
As things currently stand, Spurs remain in fifth and still only two points below Newcastle, but the well-heeled Tyneside club do have a game in hand on them. Given their form — just seven wins in their last 16 games — Opta’s AI-powered predictor model currently gives Tottenham a 27.59% chance of finishing in the top four.

Tottenham to win 2022/23 Premier League odds
Although highly improbable at this stage given the yawning 12-point gap between themselves and north London rivals Arsenal — who are currently setting the pace atop the table — Spurs have shown at various stages across this season that they can produce big results and rise to the occasion when put under the microscope.
Of course, they will need to build a consistent run of form while simultaneously hoping their rivals collectively veer off track which, given the return of European football, can happen. But, in all likelihood, Spurs are looking at a more realistic push for fourth than first, a notion underpinned by their rather long 750/1 odds with Sky Bet to win the title.

Tottenham odds to win the Champions League
There is also the question of Europe, and simply put: why can’t Tottenham win the Champions League?
It’s now four years since Tottenham reached their one and only Champions League final, losing 2-0 to Liverpool in 2019, and they came through a stern Group D examination over autumn with flying colours, losing just the single game as they finished first.
Since their first Champions League campaign in 2010/11, Tottenham have only made it past the round of 16 twice, reaching the quarter-finals in their maiden season and then the aforementioned final. They will have to channel all their energy if they are to bypass Milan in the first knockout phase.
The current Scudetto-holders are at sixes and sevens in Serie A at the moment, dropping down to fifth in the table following a run of five winless games, including three straight defeats — which also included a 4-0 capitulation to Lazio and a 5-2 collapse to Sassuolo — but the Rossoneri are Champions League royalty.
The form book goes out of the window when they hear that famous pre-match anthem. Spurs will need to be on the ball. You can get odds of 18/1 for Tottenham to win the 2022/23 Champions League with William Hill.
Other Tottenham Premier League odds
If you don’t fancy Spurs to break into the top four this term and retain their Champions League place, then you can get odds of 1/3 with Sky Bet for them to simply finish in the top six. Harry Kane — who recently brought up his 200th Premier League goal — is currently second only to Erling Haaland (25 goals) in the Golden Boot race (17 goals), and you can get odds of 14/1 for him to have a barnstorming second half of the season and usurp the Norwegian sharpshooter. Failing that, the England marksman is also backed at 33/1 for the PFA Player of the Year award.
