A meeting of two London clubs who are struggling for form in the early part of this season. The former Olympic Stadium plays host to what should be a tense tie played out live in front of the Sky Sports cameras from 12.30 pm. Here are our top West Ham v Tottenham betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
Both sides had the international break to reflect on what has been a miserable few weeks for them and although the Euro qualifiers weren’t exactly welcomed in by most football fans, especially followers of the English Premier League, it was a much-needed rest and period of reflection for the coaching staff of West Ham and Spurs. They would have worked closely with the players, looking to stamp out any mistakes that have surfaced over the last couple of weeks.
West Ham can be found sitting 16th in the table, having drawn one and losing four of their five most recent starts. They are now just five points better than Watford in the relegation zone and there’s no real reason why they can’t go down this season. It’s too early to reach for the panic button, of course, but it’s a nervy time in East London. The Hammers have been written off as 14/5 second-favourites with bet365 to bounce back and claim victory here.
A Tough Derby
Tottenham isn’t doing too much better and its stats of three wins and five draws against four defeats has them down in 14th place with 14 points on the board, just one more than West Ham. That’s much further south than the team can usually be found. Will they turn it around or are things about to go from bad to worse for Spurs? We will find out by the final whistle in this match, that much is true. The away day is even-money favourite at 10bet and that’s better than the 10/11 that’s trading with most other firms.
