West Ham vs Tottenham Betting Tips: Two bet-builders for Wednesday night
West Ham vs Tottenham Odds
There are five Premier League games being shown live on BT Sport on Wednesday evening and we've asked TipsterJ to preview the match at The London Stadium between West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur. He's done just that and as usual has picked us out two stats-based bets for your attention.
West Ham vs Tottenham Tips
West Ham managed to finally get off the mark in the Premier league in their last outing – a strike from Pablo Fornals was enough to secure a 1-0 away to Aston Villa, ending a run of 3 consecutive scoreless defeats for the Hammers. That victory has moved them into 16th place after 4 league games, slightly easing the early pressure on David Moyes. With London derbies vs Spurs and Chelsea within the next 4 days, points on home soil here could take the pressure off the Chelsea fixture, in what has been a rough start to the 22/23 campaign.
Spurs have made quite the start to the season with only Arsenal picking up more points after 4 games. Conte’s side have collected 10 points from their opening 4 fixtures which sees them currently occupy 3rd in the Premier League – a brace from Harry Kane was enough to secure all 3 points vs Nottingham Forest on the weekend in a 2-0 victory. Tottenham also tackle back to back London derbies as they face Fulham after this trip to the London Stadium.
Despite contrasting starts to the season for these two sides, you can’t ignore recent struggles for Spurs away to West Ham. They’ve lost both of their last 2 trips here, with their last win coming in 2019 - Spurs recent record vs West Ham reads: W7 D2 L5 from 14 games.
This 5/6 bet builder should go close Wednesday evening, solid enough for a 1.5pt play.
After watching Spurs this season, it’s clear to see the changes in philosophy compared to recent years and things you would associate with Spurs. They look comfortable without the ball, and are happy to let the opponent dictate possession, knowing the 3 forwards they can counter attack with. It was executed with perfection vs Forest – the home side never really troubled the Tottenham goal despite having 56% of the ball, and racking up 6 corners in the process.
Spurs have conceded 6,6 and 8 corners across their last 3 games. West Ham should get plenty of opportunities to attack here, and I think backing the hosts for 4 or more Corners is a worthy play for our builder.
With this being a London Derby I would expect to see each team collect a card. This fixture usually sees the cards fly in at the London stadium, and with a card heavy ref in Mr Bankes at the whistle it makes sense once again.
Tottenham have been leading at HT in all of their previous 8 League wins, whilst West Ham have lost 10 of the last 11 games where they have concede the opening goal. Not only does this show the importance of the first goal, it should help us get a good home corner count if things go our way, as like I said previously, Spurs are more than happy to sit off when leading.
Richarlison is my pick for a card at 10/3 part of our bet builder. The Spurs forward has been a major talking point this week after his showboating antics on the weekend, a game where he also managed an assist. He should receive his first start here, and with the occasion and referee in place, backing the hot headed Brazilian makes sense to complete a 25/1 bet builder with a 0.25 stake.
