Tottenham v West Ham tips

February 21st, 2015

Tottenham face West Ham at White Hart Lane on Sunday, live on BTSport1 from midday.

Spurs can be backed at best odds of 5/6 (Betfred, Ladbrokes & Coral), while West Ham are available at 19/5 with William Hill and the draw at 29/10 with BetVictor.

The first factor to consider here is that this fixture is usually a fast flowing free scoring affair - last season West Ham won 3-0 at White Hart Lane (you can get 90/1 with BetVictor on that happening again) and the season before Spurs won here 3-1.

Tottenham games have averaged 2.9 goals a match this season and 19 of their 25 matches have seen 3 goals or more, while West Ham’s games are averaging 2.6 goals per game - so we strongly suggest backing 'Over 2.5 Goals' here at 3/4 with BetVictor.

The Hammers have won just one of their last eight league matches and have now dropped to 8th spot in the table having exceeded expectations earlier in the season, so we expect an in-form Spurs side to collect all three points this time (it's worth noting there has only been one draw in the last 13 games between these sides).

Incredibly, 8 of Tottenham's last 10 league wins have been by a 2-1 scoreline and in total they have won 10 games (in all competitions) by that score this season - so we also recommend backing it again here at 8/1 with Bet365 - while we also like the 3-1 at 14/1 with Bet365 (who also refund losing Correct Score bets on all games that finish 0-0).

Harry Kane has scored 11 goals in his last 10 league matches, yet can still be backed at 7/2 with William Hill to score first here - which is expecially attractive as Hills will refund losing First Goalscorer bets on this game if your player scores second (or if the game finishes 0-0). We also suggest taking Ladbrokes’ Evens on him scoring at any time in the game (as short as 4/6 elsewhere).

With Andy Carroll out injured, it may also be worth backing Diafra Sakho each way to score first. He already has eight league goals this season - more than any of his team mates - and at 8/1 with Paddy Power he would seem to offer some value (they pay 1/3 odds of the 'place' in this market - if your player scores any of the first five goals).
