West Ham vs Spurs: Expect Goals In Today's Clash At The London Stadium
West Ham welcome Spurs on Sunday afternoon in the top flight. Both were in action in European competitions but enjoyed different fates. The Hammers cruised to victory in the Europa League, putting three past Belgian side Genk without reply.
West Ham vs Spurs Tips
Spurs lost on the continent to Vitesse, though it is worth noting they fielded a side made up of fringe players. Nuno is expected to rotate once more here with the likes of Son and Kane returning to the starting XI. David Moyes is expected to field the same side that started at Goodison Park last week which should see Ben Johnson continue at right back despite this being his third game in just over a week.
Odds wise the hosts are the favorites here priced at around 13/10 (43%) and may represent some value considering that they have won 59% of their games when priced accordingly.
Over 2.5 goals is the go to play for me at the minute when West Ham are in action and I fancy them to be involved in another goal laden clash here.
Moyes men’s domestic matches have averaged 3.1 goals per game as this angle has landed in all bar two of their games. This is testament to the freedom their supremo allows them to play with and the wealth of options they have at the top end of the pitch.
Talisman Michail Antonio is in fine fettle directly contributing to eight goals, five scored and three assisted, whilst Said Benrahma, Jarrod Bowen and Pablo Fornals are averaging a G+A of 1.43 per 90 between them.
After a slow start on the goals front, with three being scored in as many games, the amount of goalmouth action has increased in Spurs’ fixtures with overs landing all of their last five during which 18 goals have been scored.
Paul Tierney has the whistle for this one and with an EPL cards per game average of 3.67, a few may be put off cards here, however, with him brandishing six cards or more in a third of these matches I am happy to take the plunge on a player card here.
Oliver Skipp has picked up eleven cards in a career that spans a little over 50 games, and with a cards per game average of 0.21 you could make a case that his price for a card should be a little longer.
Last season, in the second tier, he picked up seven cards which is pretty impressive considering that the Canaries went up as champions with the highest possession per game average (60.7%) in the league.
This season, he has already accumulated four cards, which is the joint most in the league at the time of writing, so I am more than happy to back him to add to that tally here, especially with Boylesports pricing this at 2/1.
You can combine the first two selections with a Declan Rice shot on target at 26/1 with Betfair.
Rice is 11/4 with Betfair and Paddy Power to register a shot on target, something he has managed in almost a quarter of his appearances this season for club and country.
Best of luck if you are backing any of these selections and please remember to gamble responsibly.
