Spurs had a pretty comfortable night down at the Liberty Stadium in midweek as they took a win over Swansea. That extended their winning streak in the league to three games and now they move on to squeeze in this extra fixture. The Hammers had a big night on Tuesday as they dramatically sunk West Brom in stoppage time. That was a big three points for the move them out of the drop zone. Tottenham are 2/7 odds on favourites to win with the draw at 5/1 and West Ham out at 11/1.
Spurs have won their last three games at Wembley now in the league and they have remained unbeaten in nine there. However, both teams to score at William Hill for 19/20 has some appeal in this one because the Lilywhites have collected just the one clean sheet in their last four league home games. Harry Kane was left out of the starting lineup against Swansea in midweek as Spurs won 2-0, but he did get on as a sub. Kane has six goals in his last four home games in the Premier League and he will be trading as the first goalscorer favourite for the match then and overall the Lilywhite are W6 D3 L1 on home soil this season. Spurs have scored 21 goals in their ten home games so far, picking up a clean sheet in four of them (eight goals conceded in total). 67% of the goals that Spurs have scored have cropped up in the second half of matches. Tottenham have scored in each of their last nine games now and they have scored in each of their last seven on home soil. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last three home fixtures.
West Ham earned a big home win for themselves in midweek against West Brom on Tuesday and that saw them climb out of the relegation zone. They have gone unbeaten in their last two away games, netting three goals exactly in both of those a draw at Bournemouth and a win at West Ham. Their defence has become a big concern again, especially in this one against a top side, as the Irons have conceded seven goals in their last three games. Over 2.5 goals at William Hill is a price of 4/7 for this one and Andy Carroll netted a brace in their victory over the Baggies and he is a 7/2 option in the anytime goalscorer market. Three of the last four games between these have produced a 3-2 scoreline (two wins for Spurs and one for West Ham). A Spurs 3-2 correct score is a big 25/1 price in this one. West Ham have held their own against Tottenham recently but they are winless in three out on the road in the top flight against Spurs (D1 L2). Overall this season West Ham’s away form reads W1 D4 L6 and they have conceded an average of over two goals per game on the road.
These two have already met this season, with Spurs taking a 3-2 win at West Ham in the league, with the Hammers getting a revenge 3-2 win at Spurs in the EFL Cup. In the last six Premier League meetings things are even as the Lilywhites are on a W3 D1 L2 record from that. Five of the last seven meetings in all conditions have been over the 2.5 goal line and Tottenham are unbeaten in three home league games against the Irons (W2 D1).
Tottenham should go out and collect another win for themselves in this one as West Ham still looks thoroughly beatable under David Moyes. Tottenham have strong form going at home as well in the league and can take a win in this one, but it may be worth backing both teams to score though looking at recent games between them.

A London derby for the last sixteen of the League Cup on Wednesday night and on the surface of things this looks to be a thankless task for West Ham. The struggles of the Irons continued on the weekend with a rough home defeat against Brighton. Spurs just continue to fire on all cylinders on all front and will be expected to take a quarter final place. Tottenham are 1/2 to take the win at bet365, with the draw at 15/4 and West Ham at 6/1.
In the last round of the EFL Cup, Tottenham toiled to a 1-0 win at Wembley over Burnley. Before they went out and put four past Liverpool there on the weekend, Tottenham had managed just four goals in five domestic home games this season. So this may not be a high scoring EFL Cup tie and under 2.5 goals at bet365 returns a price of 7/5. Spurs have some huge matches coming up against Man Utd on the weekend in the league and a return fixture against Real Madrid in the Champions League, so this is not a priority for them. So if they get ahead in the game, they are likely going to dial things back. It’s rare that Mauricio Pochettino fields a weak side, but players may get rested here which means that Fernando Llorente may be a good 8/11 anytime goalscorer option for the Lilywhites. Spurs took a 3-2 away win at West Ham earlier this season in the top flight and West Ham have only lost by more than one goal once in their last even games against the Lilywhites.
While the EFL Cup isn’t high on Tottenham’s list of preferred silverware, West Ham have looked so disjointed and poor this season, it’s hard to imagine that they will go to Wembley and pull off a shock. Boss Slaven Bilic is a man under pressure after a 3-0 home loss suffered against Brighton in the league on the weekend. It was a dreadful performance with no quality and no fight from the Irons. West Ham have a W4 D2 L5 record across all compassion this season and two of those four wins happened in the EFL Cup, with the Londoners having taken out Cheltenham and Bolton. Away from home this season, the Hammers have collected only the one victory, that 2-0 victory over Cheltenham in this tournament (D2 L3). They have failed to score in three of their six away games and have scored just one in their last three on their travels. A Tottenham to win to nil wager is a 15/8 option at bet365 for the game as Spurs are solid at the back. Javier Hernandez is West Ham’s shortest priced option in the anytime goalscorer market at 12/5.
Spurs to win: It’s hard to see Spurs letting this one slip even if they shuffle the starting pack a little bit. They are strong in all departments and seem to be finding their feet at Wembley. West Ham are too ragged to challenge. A Spurs 2-0 correct score has appeal.

Suprs will have taken some positives from their draw against Arsenal in the North London derby just before the international break. More so because Harry Kane returned from injury and scored a goal. But that doesn’t gloss over the fact that Spurs are winless in their last four Premier League games (D4) and need to find that extra edge. They go into this London derby against West Ham as favourites though, with the Hammers still struggling just above the drop zone. But the Irons have only been beaten once in their last five league outings, so will they be the latest side to deny Tottenham a top flight victory? Tottenham are 8/15 for the win, with the draw at 10/3 and West Ham at 5/1.

So it has been some strange form from Tottenham with four drawn matches on the bounce and just the three goals scored in those games. Three of those four drawn matches have been by a 1-1 scoreline, and in total Spurs have drawn five league matches this term in the top flight by that scoreline. A 1-1 correct score here will return you a price of 15/2 at Bet365 which may tempt punters just because of the trend. At home this season in the top flight, Spurs have gone W3 D2 but the Lilywhites have won just one of their last four at home against West Ham in all competitions (W1 D1 L2). But that having been said, they have only lost one of their last 14 Premier League home games against the Irons, winning eight of those. Spurs are actually on a seven match winless streak across all competitions, their longest since in May 2004 when they failed to win in an eight match sequence.
But they are unbeaten so far and remain a tough side to crack. They got Harry Kane back before the international break and his presence up front will naturally give them more of a spark. They have missed him badly. He has scored three goals in his two previous home games against West Ham, has three in his last four against them and has netted 15 goals in his last 15 London derbies in the league as well. Kane is a price of 20/21 at Bet365 in the anytime goalscorer market for this one. Spurs put a convincing win on the board in this corresponding fixture last season, running out 4-1 winners with Kane getting a brace. Six of the last nine between the two clubs have gone over 2.5 goals but the way that Tottenham’s season is going, it’s probably worth looking under the goal line at a price of 43/40 which looks a good wager. In the correct score market a Tottenham 1-0 or a Tottenham 2-0 will return you a price of 7/1 with bookmaker Bet365.
West Ham have lost just one of their last five games, but that defeat did come out on the road in their last away game, which was at Everton. The Hammers are W2 D2 L2 in their last six league outings and they are struggling for goals still. The Hammers have netted just four goals in their last six league games. They have Diafra Sakho and Andre Ayew around the 4/1 mark along with Dimitri Payet in the anytime goalscorer market for this one. Away from home this term overall they have gone W1 D0 L4 and so are a risk in this one. West Ham are currently nine points worse off than they were at this stage last season and they have now lost five of their last six away league games. With the Hammers having won just the once in their last 14 league visits to White Hart Lane, it’s going to be hard finding value in them. A draw looks like the best that they could get out of this one with.
Tottenham are still trying to put all the pieces together to get back to winning ways and the turn of Kane is likely to help them towards that. Spurs are pretty reliable at the back and West Ham are struggling to put the ball in the back of the net at the moment and can’t be trusted out on the road. This may be a low scoring affair and there could be value in backing Tottenham to win to nil here for a decent price of 6/4. This is the type of game, against a side so close to the relegation zone, that Spurs should be winning if they have title ambitions.

A good London derby battle to kick things off on Sunday in the Premier League. The Lilywhites are on the best unbeaten stretch of form in the top flight at the moment but they will be tested at White Hart Lane by the Hammers who are sat level on 21 points with them. Can the Lilywhites hold on to their unbeaten streak or will the Hammers come in and upset things as they have done already at Anfield, the Emirates and the Etihad this season? Tottenham are 8/15 for the win, with the draw at 10/3 and West Ham at 5/1.
This game is being shown live on Sky Sports and therefore it qualifies for Paddy Power’s current free bet promotion. Just place £20 or more in single bets before the kick off a live game involving a Premier League club on Sky Sports or BT Sport and in return Paddy Power will give you £10 worth of free bets to use in-play on that game. This offer runs through the final Premier League weekend of November 2015.
This is Tottenham’s third best start to a Premier League season in terms of points (2011-12 (28) and 2009-10 (22). Spurs finished fourth in each of those seasons.
This is West Ham’s best ever start to a Premier League season after 12 matches (21 points).
West Ham have won four of their six Premier League away matches this season; they had won just four of the previous 25.
Spurs have lost just two of their last 19 Premier League home matches (W11 D6 L2).
There have been three red cards in the last three Premier League meetings between Spurs and the Hammers. This season, West Ham have earned the most reds (four) and Spurs the most yellow cards (27).
Three of the last four goals Spurs have scored against West Ham have been netted in the 90th minute and those three goals have earned an additional five points.
So it is a great eleven match unbeaten streak in the Premier League for Tottenham at the moment, winning five of those. They really should have banked three points at Arsenal just before the international break, so dominant were they, but they had to settle for a point. They are playing very well though and look a great young side. They have posted three wins and a draw in their last four league games at White Hart Lane, where they are unbeaten this season in the English top flight.
They have increasingly looked more dangerous going forward the longer the season has worn on. England’s Harry Kane has five goals in his last three league outings and looks full of confident and industry and can be backed at 20/21 to hit the back of the net on Sunday. West Ham’s Andy Carroll has scored in two of his three Premier League games against Spurs and is 11/4 to net.
Given their strong home form of just one loss in their last 19, Sp should be confidently backed to avoid defeat at the very least. But, because they have just one clean sheet in their last six Premier League outings, it is worth looking at both team’s top score for a price of 8/11 with Paddy Power. West Ham have already shown this season in beating Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City that they can turn up in the big games.
The Hammers will be missing the influential Dimitri Payet who has been involved in 35% of West Ham’s Premier League goals this season. That’s a blow and while they will likely give Spurs a pretty good test, the Lilywhites have the extra touch of class and resilience on home turf to pick up the three points.
18th November 2015 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
A thrilling London derby looks on the cards here and Spurs will be keen to extend their good home form in the top flight to keep up their push for a top four finish this season. The Hammers have been stuttering a bit lately, finding wins hard to come by, but they are still a resilient side and pretty tough to break down. Will Tottenham’s Thursday night Europa League match cost them?

Spurs have failed to win three of the last four at White Hart Lane against the Hammers but the Lilywhites will get backing in this one after taking a 1-0 win at the Boleyn Ground earlier in the season. That and the fact that West Ham aren’t winning games at the moment and Spurs are in good nick at home. Tottenham are unbeaten in their last seven league fixtures on home soil (W5 D2) and have won their last three on the bounce there, which includes wins over both Chelsea and Arsenal. So Mauricio Pochettino men aren’t messing around at White Hart Lane at the moment.
They did lose their last league match, going down 3-2 at Anfield against Liverpool. However, that man Harry Kane was on the scoresheet again, and he is 7/2 favourite in the Bet365 first goalscorer market for Sunday’s clash with the Hammers. He now has 11 goals in his last 10 Premier League games for Spurs. There is a big likelihood that both teams will score in this one, because in Tottenham’s last five at White Hart Lane, four of those games have seen both teams score. So worth a flutter there. Probably also worth looking over 2.5 goals as well. Eight of Spurs’ last 10 Premier League victories have been by a 2-1 scoreline, so that’s a trend worth backing as well there.
West Ham have seen their league victories dry up, with just one in their last eight played. They have put up a W1 D4 L2 record in that run, and have lost just one of their six played. So they are scraping along and have taken draws against Manchester United and Southampton in their last two matches. They just aren’t firing up front as well as they were. Sam Allardyce’s men are without a win in their last five away games in the top flight (D3 L2) so perhaps aren’t carrying the form to pick up a victory as they did last season in this corresponding fixture. Prior to West Ham’s win at White Hart Lane last season, Tottenham had won seven and lost none of the previous 11 home games against the Hammers, so it’s not a place they’ve enjoyed much success at as it is.
The Hammers won all three meetings against Spurs last season (two league, one Capital One Cup) but have already fallen to a 1-0 home defeat to Spurs this term. There have been three red cards in the last two Premier League meetings between the Hammers and Spurs, and where you have West Ham, you can expect a scrap. The only advantage that West Ham may be carrying into the game is freshness, with Spurs having had a Thursday night Europa League match prior to this.
There’s just not enough in West Ham to back them to pick up an away win at White Hart Lane this season. The last three meetings at the Lane have gone over 2.5 goals between these two, so have a shot at that and Spurs taking a win.

Tottenham v West Ham Betting Preview
Well the changes have been rang in at White Hart Lane, after giving Andre Villas-Boas the boot on the weekend. The Lilywhites crashed to a 5-0 defeat at home against a rampant Liverpool and that was enough for the club. Tim Sherwood takes the helm temporarily for this one, and it has been touted that he may stay there till the end of the season.

Tottenham v West Ham Betting Tips:
Spurs were just actually picking up their form, winning a couple of Premier League games and thumping Anzhi Makhachkala 4-1 in the Europa League. So the results were starting to come again, if not the overall convincing play. But then came the weekend’s humiliating home defeat against Liverpool in the Premier League, being crushed 5-0. That was enough for the Spurs board who were quick to react and gave Andre Villas-Boas the boot. The overall picture has seen Tottenham win just two of their last seven games in the Premier League where it counts, and there was also that massive hammering they took at the Etihad against Man City too. At least they have a chance to quickly bring a bit of cheer back to the club, but will their profligacy of goals come back to bite them again as it has done so often this term?
The thing here is that while Tim Sherwood takes over, he probably isn’t going to have enough time to shake things up too match. It’s better here to tinker with things than in the Premier League though. There is quality throughout their squad, but it needs someone to get them playing all with some fluency. They are favourites for Wednesday’s games though, even though they have won just one of the last three home games against West Ham. Truthfully the thing which should help Spurs here is West Ham’s lack of form and forward punch. Sam Allardyce may not be far behind Villas-Boas in being out of a job. West Ham have only found the back of the net twice in their last four Premier League away games, so they haven’t been travelling well. They go into Wednesday’s cup tie on the back of a goalless draw against the struggling Sunderland on the weekend. But just back in October, the Hammers pulled off a shock win at White Hart Lane in the top flight.
The Hammers turned up and scored a stunning 3-0 victory, all goals coming in the second half of the game. Spurs had the better of possession, but then the Lilywhites just crumbled inside of thirteen minutes, conceding three goals. The question is, are West Ham likely to turn up and do that again though or was just that one of those freak results? With both of these being low scoring sides, it may be worth going under 2.5 goals which is running at a price of 3/4 with online bookmaker Bet365. Roberto Soldado and Jermain Defoe are trading as joint favourites in the Anytime Goalscorer market and that just shows the extra quality that Spurs do have at their disposal. The Hammers have won just one of their last nine in the Premier League, having lost four of the last six and aren’t in the form to trouble the troubled Tottenham.
Naturally Spurs may have some nerves and hesitation over this one, as there is a chance of pushing for some silverware. They aren’t terribly out of form like West Ham are and should post a win. Would look for a Spurs To Win To Nil at a price of 11/8 with Bet365.
