West Ham's return to the London Stadium provided Slaven Bilic with a perfectly timed fillip after a dismal hat-trick of Premier League defeats.
The Hammers host Tottenham this weekend, and that's a much tougher task than the newly promoted Terriers. Marathonbet are 6/10 (1.60) about an away win for Mauricio Pochettino's men, but that quote looks short given that the visitors have yet to hit top gear so far this season.
The same firm are currently best price on both the home win (53/10) - which has landed in three of Spurs' last four away games against the Hammers - and the draw which is 13/4 (4.25) with both sides seeing their previous league matches ended 0-0.
Those goalless draws hold a clue as to the best bet in this London derby, where opposing an end-to-end encounter looks the best option for the first top flight clash of the weekend.
Surprisingly, both teams to score is odds on at 7/10 (1.70), but you can back at least one team to fail to score at 23/20 (2.15) with Marathonbet. That's a top price at the time of writing and looks a very tempting option for what could be a cagey clash between two teams who have looked far from their best in the final third.
The Hammers have only seen BTTS land in one of their five Premier League games this term and it's paid out in just two of Spurs' top flight matches thus far. Considering neither team are in eye-catching form going forward, backing at least one to draw a blank at 23/20 (2.15) looks a fair bet.
As ever with a London derby, Harry Kane's record will be at the forefront of punters' minds, and the England international now has a tally of 19 goals in 28 encounters against clubs from the capital.
That impressive total plus the fact the 24-year-old has five in five matches against West Ham could mean he's a popular play to break the deadlock at 66/25 (3.64) but opposing both teams finding the net is the solid selection ahead of what could well be another drab affair.
