The midweek slate of Premier League games comes to a conclusion with Tottenham vs West Ham on Thursday. This London derby is the perfect way to end a good three days of games. Spurs are looking to build on their 3-3 draw with Man City on Sunday while West Ham are looking to push themselves further up the Premier League table towards Europe.

West Ham haven’t lost in three games but can they resist the exciting Spurs attack?

Tottenham vs West Ham best odds

EPL predictions for Tottenham vs West Ham

You know we’ve reached the festive period when you start to get regular midweek Premier League action and this week we are being treated to three great days of games. We have two matches to finish off the matchweek, the best of which is Spurs vs West Ham.

It’s always going to be a good game when two London teams meet, especially when they have the history of Tottenham and West Ham. They may not be the most fierce of rivals but there’s certainly no love lost either.

Spurs got a late equalizer on Sunday to tie 3-3 with Man City, an impressive result that has got their season back on track after three back-to-back defeats. That result meant that they came into this midweek slate just six points behind Premier League leaders and hated rivals Arsenal, meaning that Ange Postecoglou’s team are well and truly back in the title race.

West Ham aren’t in the running to win the Premier League but they entered this week in ninth and aren’t far off the European positions which would guarantee them continental games next year, something both the club and fans would love to achieve again, especially after losing their talisman Declan Rice this past summer. They haven’t lost any of their past three games, picking up two wins and a draw.

Spurs should win but it’s going to be a struggle, which is why my best bet for Spurs vs West Ham is Tottenham to win and both teams to score, which you can get at +190, which feels like value to me.

Spurs are the better team, they’re six points better off than West Ham and they’ve done that despite a huge injury list plus the suspensions they had to deal with after losing two men against Chelsea. Even now missing the likes of James Maddison I believe they should have the quality to win this but they’ll give West Ham a chance.

So far in 14 games we’ve seen Spurs score 28 goals but they’ve allowed 20, more than a goal per game, which perhaps shows just how sot their underbelly is, which isn’t helped by Postecoglou’s attacking philosophy.

West Ham have scored 24 this campaign but conceded 24 and it’s hard to see them being able to keep Spurs out.

So far across 14 Premier League games we’ve seen both teams scoring in 69.2% of Spurs’ games, including four of six at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. We’ve also seen BTTS land in 84.6% of West Ham’s games. West Ham have managed to score in every single game on the road, with Spurs scoring in every game at home, which leaves this game highly poised.

We’re going to see both teams score in this one but Spurs have enough quality in their starting lineup, and also to bring from the bench, that they should be able to secure the three points too.

Tottenham vs West Ham same-game parlay

Tottenham moneyline

Both teams to score — Yes

Son Heung-Min anytime goal

At +350 we have a juicy Same-Game Parlay for Spurs vs West Ham that should allow us a good chance of winning.

We always start with our best bet, which in this case counts for two of the SGP’s three legs. We’ll be backing Spurs to win. They’ve won eight of 14 games this season and play with no fear, pushing forward and taking the game to the opposition and they should be able to secure the three points here.

We’ll also be backing both teams to score. With Spurs scoring at every Premier League game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this season, and West Ham bagging in every game on the road, we should see that trend continue with both teams scoring goals.

Then to wrap up the Same-Game Parlay we’ll be backing Spurs’ Son Heung-Min to score. He’s started all 14 of Spurs’ league games and scored nine goals in the process. Averaging 2.4 shots per target he’s always dangerous and his speed and guile get him into goalscoring positions.

Tottenham vs West Ham side and Over/Under analysis

My best bet involves Spurs winning so it’s no surprise that I think that’s the best option when it comes to betting Spurs vs West Ham on the moneyline. The issue is that I don’t think the -128 odds

are big enough to be worth betting as a single, so I’d rather combine with BTTS and get +190 odds. You can get West Ham to win at +285 with the draw at +310.

The bookies expect both teams to score, with that coming in at -200, and BTTS No at +145, given how both teams have played this season it’s hard to see either team failing to score. The Total Goals market is also not worth betting on with Over 2.5 goals coming in at -200, and the Under at +160.
