Betting odds & tips

Tottenham are 6/5 (2.20) favourites with bet365., while West Ham are 12/5 (3.40) outsiders to come out on top in north London.

Harry Kane is 10/3 (4.33) to be first goalscorer, while Michail Antonio is the Hammers' 6/1 (7.0) favourite against a team he has scored past in four of the last six meetings.

With 17 goals scored in the last five meetings between the sides, odds of 19/20 (1.95) could offer solid value on over 2.5 being scored on Wednesday.

After two weeks without a game due to Covid-19 cases, Tottenham returned with a bang in an action-packed 2-2 draw at home to Liverpool at the weekend.

While Harry Kane was fortunate to avoid a red card for a wild tackle on Andy Robertson, he will have been delighted to finally score only his second goal of a disappoiting league campaign.

With the captain fit and firing, Antonio Conte's team look well placed to extend a run that has seen them win four and lose none of their last five home games in all competitions.

In contrast, West Ham have won just one of their last six matches and travel to north London without a number of key defensive players.

Nevertheless, the Hammers are not to be underestimated after seeing off Manchester United and Manchester City in the two previous EFL Cup rounds, particularly as they have come out on top in each of their last two meetings with Spurs.
