After crashing out of the FA Cup to Derby County last weekend, West Brom face a daunting trip to take on Tottenham when Premier League football resumes on Saturday afternoon.
Spurs are in superb form at present, having won eight of their last nine matches in all competitions, while Mauricio Pochettino's men have yet to taste defeat on home turf in domestic competition so far this season.
Tottenham will be brimming with belief, having beaten Premier League leaders Chelsea in north London earlier this month, while Spurs have kept a clean sheet in four of their last five domestic matches on home soil; the hosts, therefore, are 7/20 (1.35) favourites with Betway to maintain momentum by taking all three points against the Baggies.
West Brom won their final away match of 2016 - against Southampton - but that was only the Baggies' second win in 10 matches on their travels in all competitions and Tony Pulis's men will have to produce a special performance if they are to shock Spurs; Betway go 8/1 (9.0) that the Baggies pick up maximum points from their trip to north London.
The same firm go 4/1 (5.0) that both sides are forced to settle for a share of the spoils - a selection that would have seen punters profit from each of the previous three Premier League meetings between these two teams.
Pochettino's side have notched a hugely impressive 28 goals in their last nine victories and, with Dele Alli and Harry Kane finding the kind of form that made them pivotal to Tottenham's push for the Premier League title last term, Spurs have regained their swagger.
The 7/5 (2.40) quote for the north Londoners to notch more than two goals may well prove popular, for the selection would have landed in no fewer than six of Spurs' last nine wins, while there is 3/4 (1.75) that the hosts keep a clean sheet for a fifth time in six matches on home turf in domestic competition.
Better value, however, may lie in backing Tottenham (-1) to come out on top in the handicap market in this tie; Spurs have won by more than a single goal in all but one of their last six matches and the 19/20 (1.95) quote for that trend to continue offers excellent value for punters ahead of Saturday's showdown at White Hart Lane.
