Spurs are a top priced 1.53 with Blue Square and Paddy Power to beat West Brom and the stats suggest they will do just that.
The Baggies last win at White Hart Lane came in November 1984, since then they have lost six and drawn two of their visits to north London.
They also have a poor record in the capital winning just three and losing 22 of their 33 trips to London in the Premier League.
Andre Villas-Boas’ reign in charge of Spurs got off to a losing
start as they were beaten 2-1 by Newcastle but they were unlucky not to come away with a pint.
They were the sharper side at St James’ and Jermain Defoe and Gareth Bale were both denied by the woodwork in the first half.
By contrast, West Brom marked kicked-off their campaign under new gaffer Steve Clarke with a 3-0 drubbing of Liverpool.
However the margin of that success could well have flattered them as the Reds were dire at the back and looked more like a Sunday league side than one in the top flight.
So given that Spurs have won 13 and lost just two of their last 18 PL games at home, and that West Brom have managed to keep just one clean sheet in 17 on their travels I think that the Lilywhites are worthy odds-on shots.
Jermain Defoe has scored in each of his last three league appearances against West Brom, so therefore has to be of interest at 5 with Coralto net the opener.
He is also a standout 2.2 chance with Blue Square to net anytime, and that looks terrific value given that he is as short as 1.8 in places.
I fancy Spurs to win this without reply, and for those that like to play the correct score market 2-0 makes the most appeal at 8.5 with Coral.


  1. Flat and uninspired perfomance interspersed with the odd flash from Bale. Not good enough. I’m afraid Andre Clueless-Boas doesn’t know which way to turn and doesn’t know what he doesn’t know.
