Spurs were underwhelming last term, finishing ninth in the WSL standings and a comfortable win is expected for Emma Hayes's team this weekend.
Straightforward win expected for hosts at Stamford Bridge
Chelsea capitalised on testing seasons for Manchester City and injury-hit Arsenal to win the WSL title last season, winning 19 of their 22 league assignments.
Marc Skinner's Manchester United defied the odds to push Chelsea close, falling short by just two points and having also clashed with the Blues in the Women's FA Cup final.
But Hayes's side came out on top again to secure a domestic double and they are expected to go the distance for a fifth time on the spin this season.
Whether or not they should be so short in the outright betting is up for debate but it is hard to see past anything but a routine win against Tottenham on Sunday.
Chelsea won both matches with Tottenham by an aggregate scoreline of 6-2 in the WSL last season, easing to a 3-0 win in the corresponding fixture at Stamford Bridge last November.
They scored 66 goals in 22 matches on their way to the WSL title last season and are worth a bet to win both halves against their London rivals at 6/5.

Blues should shut out London rivals
Keeping with the theme of a comfortable Chelsea win, 3-0 could represent a decent correct-score pick at 13/2.
While Chelsea were excellent going forward last season, their imperious defence also played a key role in their title success.
In 22 WSL matches, Chelsea shipped only 15 goals last term and they won by a 3-0 scoreline in the corresponding fixture last November.
Tottenham were one of the more prolific sides in the table's lower echelons but still managed only 31 goals in 22 games and look likely to draw a blank.

Prolific Kerr should not take long to make her mark
Chelsea striker Sam Kerr's Women's World Cup involvement for Australia was more limited than she would have liked over the summer but despite her injury, she still netted in the nation's first ever semi-final appearance in the tournament.
It was a reminder that Kerr, who also bagged the decisive goal in Chelsea's Women's FA Cup final win, is a player for the big occasion and she can make her mark on the opening weekend of the WSL.
Kerr scored the first goal in the corresponding fixture with Tottenham last season and looks a decent bet at 5/2 to open the scoring this weekend.
