Tottenham vs West Ham
Tottenham only just managed to break down Brighton’s stubborn defence in midweek but will be hoping for a more open encounter versus West Ham.
The visitors have nothing significant at stake and like to play good football whenever possible, so everything points towards an entertaining London derby.
We reckon 87/100 for Spurs to win and over 2.5 goals in the game is the way to go with our opening Tottenham vs West Ham prediction.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham seemed on course for a first goalless draw in 68 games until Christian Eriksen fired in a superb 88th-minute strike to end Brighton’s brave resistance.
That fourth straight success at their stunning new stadium gave Spurs some welcome breathing space in the race for a top-four finish.
“If we are capable of winning the next three games in the Premier League, then we will be third,” said Mauricio Pochettino. “I think that is the key, thinking about ourselves.”
No away team has managed to hit the target at this venue yet, but Huddersfield did have a couple of late chances recently and Spurs may well be a touch distracted by Tuesday’s Champions League trip to Ajax here.
Looking at the Tottenham vs West Ham odds, that makes 8/5 for a home win and both teams to score take the eye.
Last Tottenham line-up: Lloris, Trippier, Rose, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Wanyama, Alli, Eriksen, Moura, Son, Llorente.
Tottenham’s injury list shows no sign of shortening, with Serge Aurier (hamstring), Erik Lamela (hamstring), Moussa Sissoko (groin), Harry Winks (groin) and Harry Kane (ankle) all still out.
A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds
West Ham played well in defeat when going down 2-1 at Manchester United and then ended a run of three consecutive losses with an eventful 2-2 draw against Leicester on home turf.
The Hammers led twice through Michail Antonio and Lucas Perez – who also had a goal wrongly disallowed for offside – but were pegged back by Jamie Vardy and a stoppage-time effort from Harvey Barnes.
A mid-table finish is now on the cards, but Antonio insists there are no thoughts of shutting up shop for the season.
He said: “All you can do is go out there and give your best to try and get three points from every game, then we’ll see where we finish.
“We have got to keep going, keep pushing and try to give something to the fans until the end of the season.”
The feeling is that United can be competitive here, but 15/2 for Spurs to have the edge in class and shade it 2-1 is still added to our Tottenham vs West Ham betting tips.
Last West Ham line-up: Fabianski, Balbuena, Zabaleta, Ogbonna, Masuaku, Anderson, Snodgrass, Noble, Antonio, Rice, Arnautovic.
West Ham can welcome back Manuel Lanzini (groin), Javier Hernandez (ear infection) and Aaron Cresswell (knee).
Samir Nasri (calf) is due back next week, while Carlos Sanchez is close to returning from a long-term knee injury, but Winston Reid (knee), Andy Carroll (ankle) and Andriy Yarmolenko (Achilles) remain sidelined.
