Tottenham Hotspur have climbed up the Premier League ranks over the past decade and are now considered a legitimate contender each season. Established in 1882, Tottenham — or just Spurs as their known by English soccer fans — captured two Division One championships, but the club has yet to hoist the Premier League trophy. Spurs’ last league title was won during the 1960-61 season. On top of their league success, Tottenham has won two Second Division titles and are eight-time FA Cup champions.
On the European stage, Tottenham has won the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup once and captured the EUFA Cup on two occasions. In 2008, Spurs won another League Cup, which meant the club had captured a major trophy in each of the last six decades — a feat only accomplished by Manchester United. Tottenham’s largest margin of victory came during the 2009-10 season when Spurs crushed Wigan Athletic 9-1, propelled by a five-goal performance from forward Jermain Defoe.
Tottenham striker Harry Kane joined elite company during the 2014-15 season, becoming just the third player in Spurs history to score 30 or more goals in one single season.
Former striker Jimmy Greaves remains the franchise’s all-time scoring leader with 266 goals. Steve Perryman — a former defender/midfielder who played 17 seasons with Spurs — is the franchise’s all-time leader in appearances with 854.

How To Win At Tottenham Betting
Tottenham Hotspur are knocking on the door to win its first title in the Premier League. Under manager Mauricio Pochettino, Tottenham finished third in the Premier League standings in 2015-16 — just nine points behind eventual champions Leicester City.
For the most part, Tottenham has kept its key group intact for the 2016-17 campaign. Instead of a major overhaul, Pochettino added a supporting cast with the signings of forward Vincent Janssen from AZ Alkmaar and midfielder Victor Wanyama from Southampton. Janssen is coming off a tremendous season with AZ Alkmaar where the 22-year-old netted 27 league goals last year.
The summer transfer deals will only strengthen Tottenham’s chances of competing for a Premier League title. Bet365.com has a +700 line that Spurs will finally break through and win its first league crown in more than 50 years. The online sportsbook also puts Spurs at +1200 to win the FA Cup and +1000 to capture the England EFL Cup.
Tottenham’s third-place finish last season also qualified them for the UEFA Champions League — a tournament Bet365.com pegs Spurs at +4000 to win outright.
Along with the off-season additions, Spurs will need Kane to repeat this offensive performance from last year when the English striker led the Premier League in goals with 28. Bet365.com gives Kane a +700 chance of repeating as scoring champion. Only Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero (+333) has better odds.
