Match preview: How have both sides performed lately?
If someone had told you that in mid-February West Ham would be ahead of Tottenham in the EPL table, would have you believed them? The Hammers are 6 points ahead of Tottenham and trying hard to either get in the Top 4 or hold on to the 5th spot.
Tottenham’s recent form
With a win, Tottenham will get to 39 points putting them just 3 points behind West Ham and a sport in the Top 4. However, we don’t really like how Spurs have performed lately as they have lost 5 out of the last 7 games in all competitions.
How has West ham fared recently?
The team managed to snag 2 away wins in their last 6 matches. They have a home loss to Liverpool and an FA Cup loss to Man Utd, but they didn’t lose that match in regulation. It was essentially a draw.
Their top scorer Tomáš Souček managed to net 3 goals over their last 5 games and he will be the main threat against that Spurs team.
West Ham vs Tottenham: The top three free tips that we have on the match
Full-Time Result: Draw @ 12/5
This is the logical outcome of the game as West Ham looks like a very solid team at home this year winning 6 of their last 8 EPL matches. Furthermore, they scored 2+ goals in most matches lately (four out of six). Still, we must not forget that West Ham had some scoring woes before that. At some point this season, they had a 14-game stretch in which they scored 2+ only four times.
Tottenham will look to bounce back after losing 4 of their last 5 EPL matches. We think that both sides will play attacking football, and neither will win.
Tomáš Souček: Anytime Goalscorer @ 3/1
The math here is simple. We are just following the hot hand or in this case – the hot foot. Tomáš Souček has scored in 60% of the last 5 matches and we see no reason not to like him here. Tottenham’s defense has allowed a total of 13 goals in their last 7 competitions. The price of 3/1 is a good one. Don’t place a huge wager. The ROI is still pretty good.
Corners: Over 10 @ 6/5
Attacking football often leads to corner kicks. Both teams average just slightly over 10 corners in their last 4 games. Again, this is a value bet. If we consider the chance to have over 10 corners in the game to be 50%, we definitely like 6/5.
