Tottenham Hotspurs – West Ham
over 2.75 @ 1.98 (betphoenix)
Things are getting so much interesting in Premiership, after the last round. Tottenham and Chelsea are the teams that aren’t happy after the results : they’ve both lost 2 important points, after ending 0-0 with Birmingham (Chelsea), and 0-0 with Fulham (Tottenham). As a result, Chelsea is now only 2 points ahead of Man Utd, and has other reasons to worry, as Arsenal plays better and better and looks like a serious challenger for the Blues to win the title.
Tottenham is 5th, and might lose this place as Man City is only 2 points behind, but has one match less, so in case of a victory in that match, City would go 1 point in front of Spurs. Today, Tottenham plays a local derby against a hungry for points team, Wes Ham United. Tottenham, 5th as I’ve said, has the 4th attack in the league, scoring 40 goals so far. Their defense isn’t the best one, as they’ve allowed 22 goals, more than 1 per match. West Ham has a good attack, also, thr 7th, scoring 28 goals, but their problem is clearly their defense, that allowed 35 goals, almost 2 goals per match. Tottenham average 3.26 goals/match, while their opponents average 3.31 goals/match. So, today, it’s a match between two teams that are likely to produce spectacular matches. The best example is Tottenham Hotspurs, winner a few rounds ago over Wigan Athletic with an outstanding 9-1 score.
I think that Tottenham wins today, but I’m sure that, just like in the match with Chelsea, West Ham will be strong enough to fight heavily and they have many chances to score.
