Tottenham v West Ham betting tips

Tottenham Hotspur have become away day specialists this season after landing emphatic victories at St Mary’s and Old Trafford, although it’s been a different story at White Hart Lane where the north London outfit have been thwarted by both Everton and Newcastle United.

The Toffees landed a 1-0 victory in their first match of the season, while the Magpies weathered a barbaric Spurs storm before somehow being awarded a penalty for a dodgy handball which left Jose Mourinho seething. The Portuguese is hoping it’s third time lucky for his team when they entertain an in-form West Ham side in this London derby.

Are Spurs Banker Material Against the Hammers?

Tottenham Hotspur are a curate’s egg at the moment due to the difference in home and away form although we should take some factors into consideration. Firstly that Spurs had the better of the chances when facing Everton in the first half, with Jordan Pickford pulling off a string of saves before Tottenham faded after the break.

Secondly, Mourinho’s men could have been 3-0 up in the first half of their game against the Magpies and they have put Southampton and Manchester United to the sword to win by massive margins, with Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min the chief architects of those teams’ downfalls.

Perhaps Tottenham could even be considered as title contenders although they can’t take this West Ham team lightly and perhaps the game will be a good deal closer than the odds suggest.

Are West Ham a Massive Price After Big Wins over Wolves and Leicester?

Few West Ham supporters would have expected to see their team land six points over Wolverhampton Wanderers and Leicester City before the international break, although it wasn’t just the fact that the Hammers beat this Midlands teams but also that they wiped the floor to win by an aggregate 7-0 victory overall.

David Moyes is the most successful Premier League manager of all time when it comes to coaching while being quarantined and the Scot will return to the dug-out for this clash hoping that his team carry on where they left off, with the team actually clicking into gear away at Arsenal where they were unlucky to lose 2-1.

Jarrod Bowen and Michail Antonio are in the form of their life, with Declan Rice and Pablo Fornals also operating nicely in the midfield department and the defence have now kept consecutive clean sheets, with this being an opportunity to claim another scalp.

What Do the Bookies Expect to Happen?

The bookies make Tottenham firm favourites to win this clash after their Old Trafford victory, with Spurs no bigger than 13/20 to record a victory in this game despite their inability to win either home match to date and also the fact that there are still no supporters watching the games.

West Ham look like juicy outsiders and will certainly not be there to play the role of whipping boys after their two excellent victories. It appears as though Moyes is doing a good job at the London Stadium.

What Are the Best Bets For This Match?

Rather than betting on Tottenham to win the game at a really short price, we would prefer to wager on them to triumph in a couple of different ways and there’s the possibility that both of the below bets can win.

Spurs and BTTS is an attractive price considering that the Hammers have seven goals on the board in their previous two games, while we also like the idea of Tottenham landing a victory with the scores level at the break.

We wouldn’t put anyone off the idea of going with West Ham on the Asian Handicap although the fact that Gareth Bale could line up in this clash could swing things in the favour of the home side.
