Roberto De Zerbi's Brighton have been priced at 11/10 to finish above Tottenham in the Premier League next season.
Securing European qualification for the first time in the club's history last term, placing sixth to earn direct participation in next season's Europa League group stages, Brighton are flying high at present under highly-rated Italian manager De Zerbi.
The Seagulls have become renowned for their clever recruitment from far and wide, unearthing little-known gems such as Alexis Mac Allister and Moises Caicedo from Argentina and Ecuador respectively, as well as an attractive style of play on the pitch focused on building from the back and controlling possession.
Despite Mac Allister having departed to Liverpool and the likes of Caicedo and fellow shining light Kaoru Mitoma also attracting significant interest from elsewhere, Brighton have proven capable of replacing their standout players before with Marc Cucurella and Yves Bissouma both departing last summer to Chelsea and Spurs.
Brighton have already moved quickly to add to their squad ahead of next season's European adventure, with Joao Pedro, James Milner and Mahmoud Dahoud arriving from Watford, Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund respectively.
It is this kind of swift and decisive transfer business which makes Brighton appear so settled and well-run off the field. This stands in contrast to one of Brighton's rivals for a European place last term, Spurs, with Ange Postecoglou becoming the North London club's fourth permanent manager in the last four years.
Brighton were able to finish two points above eighth-placed Spurs in the Premier League last season, and new Australian boss Postecoglou has a big task on his hands to surpass De Zerbi's side who have have been on a rapid upward trajectory since the Italian replaced Graham Potter in the hotseat last September.
Spurs' chances of elevating themselves back above Brighton may just hinge on the future of talisman Harry Kane, who continues to be linked with a move away from the club this summer with just one year remaining on his current contract.
