Tottenham looks to jump up to third in the EPL and distance itself from Arsenal for a Champions League spot when it faces fellow Londoners West Ham United today at 3pm EST.Even with a home record of 6-3-4 (W-L-T) the Hammers still are not favoured by bookies in today's match against Spurs. With odds of 3.50 at William Hill, it is apparent that many feel Tottenham will take at least a point away from Boleyn Ground today.
I agree with that sentiment.
West Ham is coming off a 2-1 away loss to Aston Villa from two weeks ago and have won only once in its last six matches, a 1-0 home win against Swansea City. The Hammers currently sit in 13th spot on the tables, only six points out from the relegation zone.
A draw result is being offered at 3.10, but with Spurs only drawing twice in 13 road games the away win at 2.20 still seems to the right result for a number of reasons.
Firstly, Spurs have been hot as of late. The club has not lost a league match since the first week of December, a streak lasting an impressive 10 matches. After Chelsea lost to Manchester City this weekend, Tottenham now has an opportunity to jump into the third spot in its quest for an enormously valuable Champions League berth for next season. A win here would see Spurs go back up to a four point lead over Arsenal.
I also like the Tottenham to win and both teams to score betting special at William Hill - which is currently at 4.33 -along with the Spurs win coupled with a Gareth Bale goal, which sits at 4.84 if you select them seperately in a double parlay bet as opposed to the special. Bale has 13 goals on the campaign and has been on a tear recently, scoring six in his last five games.
The Bale to score at any point bet on its own sits at 2.20, though that juices up to 5.50 should he score the first or final goal of the match (separate bets).
