West Brom vs Tottenham: goals the best bet for free-scoring Spurs

| 25.11.2011

Tottenham are arguably the form team in the Premier League at present and they can maintain the pressure on Manchester City at the top of the table with victory at West Brom.

Eight wins in their last nine games have fired Spurs directly into the title mix and they have firmly recovered from their early-season defeats against Manchester City and Manchester United.

Tottenham’ odds are 10/11 to beat West Brom and a success would be their 100th on their travels in the Premier League.

Also in their favour is that West Brom tend to struggle at home to London clubs in the Premier League.

In total, the Baggies have triumphed in just two of their last ten league meetings with Spurs, although the good news is that both of these victories have arrived at the Hawthorns.

It is 3/1 that West Brom beat Tottenham and 12/5 that the showdown ends as a draw.

Alongside winning, Tottenham have been scoring for fun of late and Emmanuel Adebayor, Rafael van der Vaart and Gareth Bale have all looked dangerous in attack.

Tottenham have scored at least twice in their last nine Premier League encounters and it is 11/10 that they net either two or three goals at the Hawthorns.

Meanwhile, Adebayor will be in confident mood after his double in the victory over Aston Villa and he is 9/2 to open the scoring.

Bale is always a threat with is pace and directness and is 9/2 to score at any time within the 90 minutes.

For West Brom, Jerome Thomas has three goals in six fixtures with Spurs and may be overpriced at 5/1 to score at some point in the clash.
