Match Summary

1 Look out for:

An early goal. The Hammers have struck two of their last six Premier League goals inside the first 12 minutes, while two of Tottenham’s last three have come in the opening 25 minutes, making a goal to be scored before the 26:00 mark – priced at 5/6 with bet365 – one of the best football betting tips for the weekend.

2 We fancy:

Tottenham to win by a one-goal margin is 51/20 with 10bet. Remarkably, five of the last six matches between the two has been settled by a single-goal margin (the other result was a draw) and Tottenham won 3-2 the last time the pair met at London Stadium.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Tottenham to win 3-0 is 14/1 with 888sport. One thing we know about Spurs is that when in the mood, they can destroy anyone. Just ask Manchester United, whom Pochettino’s side thumped 3-0 at Old Trafford. Spurs to repeat last season’s victory over West Ham is certainly worth a flutter.

One to Watch: Marko Arnautovic

West Ham forward Marko Arnautovic had a mixed start to life at the Hammers after his arrival from Stoke City in the summer of 2017. That was until a breakthrough second half of last season and since then, the attacker has been involved in more goals than any other West Ham player. With four goals to date this term, the Austrian has embraced the ‘West Ham way’ and has replaced Dimitri Payet as most influential player. At 8/5 to score anytime with Paddy Power, Arnautovic looks like being one of the best football betting tips for this capital clash.

Midfielder Robert Snodgrass looks to set to return to the fold for West Ham United, despite pulling out of the Scotland squad. However, Manuel Pellegrini will be without Andy Carroll, Manuel Lanzini, Winston Reid and Carlos Sanchez, while Jack Wilshere is still absent after minor ankle surgery in September.

Danny Rose is a doubt for Mauricio Pochettino after the defender withdrew from England duty, while Jan Vertonghen’s thigh injury has been confirmed to keep him out until December. Doubts also remain over Christian Eriksen’s abdominal injury, which is feared to be chronic, and whether he will be in line for a derby-day return.

West Ham vs Tottenham Hotspur Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will we be seeing more of these celebrations from Erik Lamela in East London?

It’s amazing what a difference a couple of wins can make. At the start of September, the doom-mongers had already rung the death bell at West Ham United, but two wins, one defeat and a draw later and suddenly the future is bright for Manuel Pellegrini’s men. As for their opponents Tottenham Hotspur, they’ve made their best-ever start to a Premier League campaign, despite their issues in Europe and with regards to their new stadium, and a atmospheric trip to London Stadium will be just the test Spurs need to prove they are genuine title contenders. Expect noise and plenty of action in our Premier League preview, which concerns one of the weekend’s standout fixtures.   

West Ham are 10/3 to win and that is worth a punt in our Premier League predictions. The Hammers are starting to turn their season around after a shaky start and the new signings are beginning to gel. Their victory over Manchester United and draw with Chelsea is proof enough that West Ham fear no one.

Tottenham are 4/5 to win and it is not hard to see why after a strong start to the new season. The Lilywhites come into the game having won their last three games and also emerged victorious on their last trip to London Stadium, making an away triumph one of the smarter football predictions here.

The draw is 13/5, and it’s yet another tempting bet, which just goes to show how close this game could be. The pair drew when they last met in the league (although that was at Wembley Stadium), but Spurs still haven’t finished square this season and West Ham have only once, meaning this is the least likely of our football score predictions to pay out.  

Over 2.5 goals is 4/6. Goals galore is often the order of the day when these two meet. In fact, the last three games between the two have yielded 12 goals in total, at an average of four a match, making this bet today’s football prediction for a sure thing.

Both teams to score in the first half is 3/1 and one of the best football predictions for this one. West Ham have scored first-half goals in the last three games where they’ve found the back of the net, as have Tottenham.

Predicted Score: West Ham 2 - 3 Tottenham Hotspur
