Tottenham Hotspur FC vs. West Ham United FC

Sunday, March 20, 2022 – 12:30 PM EDT at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

The marquee battle of the Premier League schedule takes place in North London on Sunday, when the Hammers make a short trip to face their London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Both squads return to action following successful results. Spurs knocked off Brighton in midweek action, while West Ham delivered one of the most historic European outings in the club’s history.

Form, Mentality, Premier League Statistics and Trends

  1. Tottenham score an average of 2.00 goals in their home fixtures
  2. Tottenham have scored at least 2 goals in their previous 4 home meetings
  3. West Ham have lost 3 consecutive games away from home
  4. West Ham are undefeated in 5 of their last 6 EPL meetings

Six and Seven Do Battle on Level Points

With a season where scrutiny has been present, Tottenham’s star man Harry Kane reminded critics why he’s one of the Premier League’s most expensive players as a history-making 95th away goal in Brighton during midweek action saw Kane surpass the legendary away-goals record of Wayne Rooney.

Whilst the 100-goals away from home tally will unquestionably be broken in due course, Kane and company will return their focus to home soil for Sunday’s meeting as they attempt to shorten the gap, which is a mere 3 points from 4th placed Arsenal.

Tottenham’s 7th placed positioning in the table doesn’t sound promising, but when you realize the chase for a European qualification spot next term holds a slight 3-point separation between 4th-7th, anything is possible. With a little thanks to Liverpool, who handed the Gunners a midweek loss, ultimately preventing Arsenal from gaining further advancement with 4th place.

Tottenham have been firing hot with Antonio Conte steering the ship – scoring 13 goals from their previous 4 Premier League meetings – they’ll also be happy to welcome a potentially fatigued West Ham side that overperformed on Thursday night.

Similar Situations

The Europa League experience and expertise of Sevilla weren’t enough to stop the Hammers at London Stadium. After a 1-0 deficit in the first leg, West Ham forced extra time versus the dangerous Spanish outfit in the 2nd leg. And with a sell-out stadium as their witness, Andriy Yarmolenko caused the West side of London to erupt, as his late goal sent West Ham into the quarterfinals.

However, just three days from this emphatic performance, David Moyes men have had no time to recover as a sentimental London derby goes down on Sunday.

West Ham has triumphed Tottenham on home soil in back-to-back meetings, but the last time these two met saw Spurs deliver a 2-1 EFL Cup exit for Sunday’s visitors.

Final Thoughts | EPL Matchday 30 Betting Picks and Odds

The EPL betting odds favor Tottenham, and this stance isn’t one I’m going to argue given West Ham’s questionable fitness levels.

With that said, I’m struggling to pick a winner. Both Conte and Moyes understand the importance of their current league positioning. For this reason, backing a draw at halftime and a lack of goals is a viable wagering approach.
