Tottenham are one of the teams that seem to have benefited the most from empty stands at Premier League games and get a confident vote to prevail at West Brom.
Spurs were poor travellers when winning only four away games all last season but have picked up maximum points from three road trips so far this term.
With Albion struggling to adapt to life in the top flight, 29/20 for the visitors to oblige by more than one clear goal is our first West Brom vs Tottenham prediction.
A Look At West Bromwich Albion’s Betting Odds
West Brom have yet to taste victory in the league since securing promotion and are odds-on for a quick return to the Championship.
The Baggies have battled hard for draws against Chelsea, Burnley and Brighton, but Monday’s 2-0 loss to fellow new-boys Fulham was a damaging blow.
Slaven Bilic said: “I saw a young kid Conor Gallagher and I saw Branislav Ivanovic, a very young guy and an older guy, they had more commitment.
“That’s not good when you can see two players that are doing more than the others – it looked to me like that and it can’t be the case.
“We are the team that can’t rely on quality only, we have to dig in and work hard like we have done, especially in the last couple of games. If we can’t do that, we have no chance.”
Albion have some promising individuals, such as Grady Diangana, Matheus Pereira and Karlan Grant.
However, they are lacking leadership in key areas and look in too deep at this level on the evidence seen so far.
Son Heung-min has scored in all three of Tottenham’s Premier League away wins, netting seven times on those road trips.
That makes 17/10 for him to hit the target in a Spurs victory here stand out from the West Brom vs Tottenham odds.
Last West Brom line-up: Johnstone, Furlong, Ajayi, Townsend, Ivanovic, Livermore, Diangana, Krovinovic, Gallagher, Pereira, Grant.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham moved up to third in the table when beating Brighton 2-1 at home last weekend, with prodigal son Gareth Bale heading in the winner.
Spurs had hit the front through an early Harry Kane penalty and felt Tariq Lamptey’s equaliser should have been chalked off due to a foul in the build-up.
Eric Dier commented: “I’m very confused as to why it wasn’t taken back to the foul. I can’t understand any reason why it wasn’t. So, in the moment it’s very difficult.
“But I think we reacted really well, we were resilient. We scored pretty quickly afterwards and I think we were comfortable in the way we saw out the game.”
Playing in the Europa League is putting a bit of a strain on Spurs, especially as some fringe players have failed to impress in that competition.
However, there seems a good spirit among Jose Mourinho’s regular starters and that should stand them in good stead.
Tottenham thrashed Manchester United 6-1 at Old Trafford prior to the last international break and are fancied to open up again here.
Let’s finish off our West Brom vs Tottenham betting tips by taking 11/1 for the visitors to prevail 3-1.
Last Spurs EPL line-up: Lloris, Doherty, Reguilon, Alderweireld, Hojbjerg, Lamela, Dier, Sissoko, Ndombele, Son, Kane.
