With the Baggies coming to White Hart Lane we take a look at some Spurs vs West Brom betting tips for our Premier League clash.
There is a lot on the line when Spurs take on West Brom this evening in the last Premier League match of the weekend. With Leicester’s victory, nothing short of three points will do for the Lilywhites to maintain any hope of becoming champions. Tottenham are naturally heavy favourites to win, but there are plenty of other Spurs vs West Brom betting tips around too.
With us having won 5 of our last six Premier League matches coming in, we are heavy favourites to win, and why shouldn’t we be? We’ve won 55% of our last 20 home matches, drawing 25% and losing 20%.
Against teams that are below us in the table we’ve won 14, drawn 4 and lost 2 of our last 20 matches at home. Impressive stuff from our more resilient and battle-hardened team this season!
Most bookies have us as an 80%+ chance to win leaving little to invest in at around the 1.22 mark. Asian handicaps of Spurs -1.5 goals returning 1.6 times your stake or Spurs -2.5 at 2.5 times your stake are more viable alternatives.
If you want to take advantage of the straight match odds market, then Betfair are offering Spurs at 4/1 to win for new customers, which is good value if you don’t yet have an account with them.
Recommendation: Back Spurs -1.5 at 1.6 with Bet365.
With Spurs having plenty more to play for than West Brom, I’d normally veer this market. However, if you’re looking for omens then our last two home matches have been 3-0 wins. That score is available at a decent 7.5 (13/2) with Paddy Power and I make it about an 11% chance to happen. The most likely outcome is 2-0 with a 14% chance and BetVictor is best price at 6.5 (11/2) for this to happen.
Recommendation: Back Spurs to win 3-0 at 7.5 with Paddy Power.
Harry Kane has three goals in three appearances against West Brom and is the standout to open the scoring tonight. He is available at a best-priced 3.75 (11/4) with Bet365 to do so.
More enticing is the offer of Harry Kane to score in each half. This is available at 6.5 (11/2) with BetVictor for a maximum £20 stake for those on before kick off.
Those looking for value elsewhere should look at Toby Alderweireld. The centre half has scored four times at home in his last 20 matches at the Lane and is a real threat from set pieces, especially corners. The Belgian is a standout 26.0 (25/1) with BetVictor to be first on the score sheet.
Whilst Eric Dier might not be many people’s selections in this market, the defensive midfielder has a habit of timely opening goals. Two of his three strikes at White Hart Lane this season have been the first on the score sheet with those coming against Stoke and Newcastle. Paddy Power is a best-priced 20/1 against him making it three matches where he finds the net first.
Dele Alli opened the scoring when the sides met at the Hawthorns and is best-priced 5/1 to do so again here. 888sport are offering a massively enhanced 20/1 for him to be first goalscorer to new accounts, which should be taken up if you fancy the PFA Young Player Of The Year to continue his good form.
Our last 20 matches at home have produced on average 2.45 goals per game. Against teams in the bottom half of the table that rises to 3.1 goals per game. The over 2.5 goals market looks well priced at 1.62 (8/13) with Betfair. For the braver punter over 3.5 goals at 2.5 (6/4) with Paddy Power is worth a look.
Recommendation: Back Over 2.5 goals at 1.62 with Betfair.
Other Spurs vs West Brom betting tips
Only West Ham and Aston Villa have conceded more times in the opening 30 minutes of matches than West Brom have this season. Spurs have also leaked early goals at home, which make the 1.83 (5/6) on a goal in the first 26 minutes with Bet365 enticing.
Recommendation: Back goal in first 26 minutes at 1.83 with Bet365.
This should be a routine victory for Spurs to put more pressure on Leicester in the chase for the title. COYS!
