Tottenham v West Ham Odds: Spurs The Favourites For Crucial Match
We have a cracking London derby to look forward to on Sunday afternoon as West Ham make the short trip to play Spurs at White Hart Lane. It is a crucial match in the Premier League for both teams even at this stage of the season with just one place separating the clubs in the table at the moment. The Hammers sit in 7th place after a cracking start while Spurs have slipped in the table recently to eighth and will be looking to bounce back against West Ham.
As you would expect it is the home side who are the warm favourites despite their poor recent form. Manager Andre Villas-Boas has found himself under a little bit of pressure after their derby defeat to Arsenal made it three successive defeats in the Premier League and a Spurs win here is vital. Tottenham have once again played some cracking football but they have been plagued by inconsistency which is a real worry for the faithful at White Hart Lane. It does have to be said that Spurs started the north London Derby really well and only the brainless sending off of Emanuel Adeybayor changed the tide in the favour of the Gunners which should encourage AVB.
Punters wanting to back Tottenham to beat West ham by any score line this weekend can currently get a price of 4/6 with Bet 365.That looks a short price for a team who have lost twice at home but an in form Spurs team should have far too much for a West Ham side who were playing in the Championship last season. Jermain Defoe will be leading the line for the home side who may also have the influential Moussa Dembele available after injury which will be a big boost for the squad.
Sam Allardyce and West Ham have made a cracking start to the season and will go into the Spurs match full of confidence which is sure to make them a dangerous opponent. They will take heart from Wigan winning at White Hart Lane recently and their fans will be eager to put one over on their London rivals. The Hammers currently sit two points above Spurs in the table and three points on Sunday would see them consolidate their position in the top eight of the table.
The Hammers go into this clash with Spurs as the under dogs but punters wanting to back the upset can currently get a decent looking price of 9/2 with Bet365 at the moment. They come into the match after picking up a point at home to stoke on Monday night but they have been decent on the road this season making them a potential banana skin for Spurs. The Hammers will be looking for Andy Carroll to hit the net finally but either way the on loan Liverpool striker will cause plenty of problems given half the chance.
Spurs will be under plenty of pressure to pick up the three points here to halt their run but the Hammers will be no pushovers. Sam Allardyce will be looking to frustrate Tottenham in the early stages of the match which should increase the anxiety amongst the fans. In the end though we feel that Spurs will have too much going forward for their opponents and a 2-1 Spurs win at 7/1 with Bet365 might prove to be a great value punt.
