If prizes were given out for stating the obvious, then Harry Redknapp would have been rewarded handsomely this week for his assertion that it is possible to win the title “if you keep winning matches”.
But he was more insightful when, after watching his side beat Aston Villa 2-0 on Monday, he noted how important it is not to look too far ahead into the future – particularly when your next fixture is away at West Brom.
Spurs been ahead at the interval in seven of their last eight games and have converted all but one of these leads into victory.
For while Spurs will be expected to beat the Baggies on Saturday and record their ninth win in ten Premier League matches, Tottenham have not beaten West Brom at the Hawthorns since April 2003.
There have been three draws and two home wins since then, and with Baggies boss Roy Hodgson declaring himself happy with the way his side are performing in the wake of their most recent match – a 2-1 win over Bolton – West Brom will be confident of spoiling Spurs’ afternoon once again.
A West Brom win is priced at 3/1, with a draw available at 12/5.
However, with West Brom struggling to find the back of the net at home this season and Tottenham in such good form, it is difficult to look past a Spurs victory in bwin’s 3Way football betting market.
The Baggies have scored just five times in their six home games so far this season, and with Spurs averaging over two goals a game the Lilywhites look set to ease to victory at their price of 9/10.
Not only that, but they look good value to be ahead at both half time and the final whistle at odds of 19/10.
Spurs have only conceded once in the first half of their away matches so far this season and have not yet been trailing going into the break.
Crucially, they have been ahead at the interval in seven of their last eight games and have converted all but one of these leads into victory.
As such, they look more than capable of doing the same to a West Brom side who have already gone down to Manchester United, Stoke and Liverpool so far this season.
A successful £25 free bet on Spurs to be winning against West Brom at half time and full time would return £72.50, with the free bet available to new customers who sign up for a bwin account.
One final bet to consider would be on Spurs to win a game with over 2.5 goals given six of the eight league wins they have recorded this season have featured at least three.
This bet is available at 37/20, making a successful £25 free bet on the outcome worth £71.25.
