West Brom v Spurs: The split-stake path to Hawthorns profit
The betting for Spurs’ Premier League trip to West Brom reflects the unshakable feeling this will be a tight fixture, with the 19/10 hosts, unbeaten under new boss Tony Pulis, less than half a point bigger than Mauricio Pochettino’s improving 6/4 Lilywhites.
That being the case, we’ve taken a somewhat novel approach to scouting three best bets. Read on for the reveal…
This outcome has become the gift that keeps on giving from Tottenham, particularly away from home, where five of their seven 2-1s since the start of November have occurred.
Pochettino’s men last obliged less than two weeks ago at home Sunderland, and bagged exactly a couple on the road against Sheffield United in the Capital One Cup last time out, so the bet holds plenty of appeal for another repeat.
When Spurs aren’t winning 2-1 they’re often losing by the same scoreline, with two such reverses occurring over the past 20 days against Crystal Palace and Leicester.
The 2-2 draw with the Blades was the third time Pochettino’s crowd shipped twice in six games, and West Brom have struck 10 times in four outings since Pulis took over as coach.
Last time out the Baggies were 2-1 victors away to Birmingham, and they’ve won three of their matches so far under the former Stoke and Crystal Palace favourite.
With a tight affair expected in the Midlands, a split-stake strategy is advised.
The well-liked Dane closed proceedings in the aforementioned Spurs clashes with Sunderland and Sheffield United, which were his fifth and sixth last goals for the club in all competitions this season.
Five of his past six efforts have come in 2-1 wins for the Lilywhites, and the 22-year-old doubled up at Bramall Lane in midweek, so punters should stay on board.
