Tottenham are stepping closer towards finishing third in the table and the home match against rivals West Ham this weekend is one of the biggest tests left in the league campaign for Mauricio Pochettino’s men. Spurs were able to open up a three-point advantage over Chelsea after the midweek results. Meanwhile, West Ham look set to finish in the bottom half with the team now five points away from the top 10. Follow all our predictions, free bets, and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Spurs were able to come up with a late winner to beat Brighton’s defensive tactics at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium in the midweek. Christian Eriksen came up with the only goal in this narrow victory to overcome back-to-back losses for Spurs.
West Ham were pegged back-to-back by a late equaliser after Leicester City picked up a 2-2 draw at the London Stadium. Even though the Hammers are winless in four matches, this result brought an end to their three-game losing streak.
Spurs were able to pick up a 3-1 victory over West Ham in the recent meeting against their rivals at the London Stadium. West Ham, though, picked up a 1-1 draw in the last away match against Spurs. Our betting tips and predictions would go with Spurs to pick up three points.

Pochettino was pleased to see his team grab a late win over Brighton. At this stage, it is such results that provide the team with a lot of confidence. The victory also opens a three-point buffer, which can come in handy for Pochettino to rest players for the midweek Champions League game against Barcelona. West Ham have been very poor in recent weeks and this is especially true of the away results. The Hammers are winless in eight away games and have lost four away matches on the bounce. Our preview would pick a Spurs win.

Spurs are likely to face a lot of pressure from this derby and there could be a slight rotation from Pochettino in view of the Champions League game. The recent meetings between these two London rivals have been filled with goals. Even when going through a struggle in terms of form, West Ham have come up with seven goals in six matches. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 home win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The 1-1 draw in the meeting just over a year ago at the Wembley Stadium is the only away derby match for the Hammers against Spurs in the last six meetings. Both teams have the capability to score a couple of goals, but the Hammers will be let down by a defence that has been conceding goals. Our total goals prediction would opt for over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Son Heung-Min was subdued in the game against Brighton but he is expected to receive more space against West Ham. The South Korean has an especially good record against West Ham with three goals and five assists in his seven appearances across all competitions. In fact, it was the 26-year-old who came up with the opener in the recent game between these two clubs back in October. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Son Heung-Min.
