Spurs have a terrific record against West Ham and look worthy odds-on shots at a top priced 1.7 with William Hill
to further enhance it with a much needed victory.
The stats reveal have not lost in this fixture they’ve not lost since 1999, and have also won won seven and lost just one of their last 10 Premier League games against the Hammers.
They also have a very good record in the league after Europa League fixtures, and face a side who offer little attacking threat upfront.
Jermain Defoe has scored in four of his last seven PL games against West Ham, and looks the obvious selection in the first goalscorer market at the 5.5 on offer with Coral
and Paddy Power
He can also be backed at 2.2 with Paddy Power
to score anytime, and that looks excellent value given that he is as short as 1.91 to do so with many firms.
Andres Villas-Boas’ side have also scored first in eight games this season, with only West Brom (9) topping that tally.
That suggests that they are worth a wager at 1.53 with Paddy Power
to get the first in this encounter.
The visitors have also failed to score in five of their last seven league matches against the Lilywhites, and that throws up another couple of potential punts.
The first is for spurs to win to nil, which can be backed at a standout 3 with Blue Square
The second is backing them to win 2-0 and 3-0 in the correct score market. The former is an 8.5 chance with Stan James
, whilst the latter can be backed at 13 with Coral
