Tottenham are in desperate need of a boost after three straight Premier League defeats but should enjoy a welcome reprieve when hosting West Brom.
The second-from-bottom Baggies have only picked up one point from four outings themselves and look headed for a quick return to the Championship.
We’re going with 5/4 for a home win and under 3.5 goals in the game for our first Tottenham vs West Brom prediction.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Mutterings about Jose Mourinho’s negative tactics have grown and grown during Tottenham’s current troubles.
Since losing Harry Kane to injury during a 3-1 defeat by Liverpool, Spurs have been toothless up front in 1-0 reversals versus Brighton and Chelsea.
Having been top of the table in mid-December, they are down in eighth place and simply must stop the rot here before visiting Manchester City and West Ham.
Jorginho’s first-half penalty proved decisive against Chelsea, but Mourinho insists he is seeing a togetherness in his squad.
He said: “It’s not easy to see togetherness with bad results, defeats, difficulties, injuries.
“Togetherness is very easy to show when you’re on a high and winning matches, when everything is amazing.
“In difficult moments, it’s more difficult to see that togetherness, but I saw that in the second half. No doubts for me.”
Being without Kane is an obvious blow, while Giovani Lo Celso and Dele Alli were also sidelined on Thursday night.
However, the likes of Son Heung-min, Steven Bergwijn, Carlos Vinicius, Eric Lamela, Lucas Moura and possibly even Gareth Bale should be good enough to get the job done here.
Looking at the Tottenham vs West Brom odds, we like 13/2 for a 2-0 home victory.
Last Spurs line-up: Lloris, Alderweireld, Aurier, Davies, Hojbjerg, Dier, Sissoko, Ndombele, Son, Bergwijn, Vinicius.
Alli (tendon), Lo Celso (hamstring) and Sergio Reguilon (muscle) will all miss out again.
A Look At West Bromwich Albion’s Betting Odds
West Brom have the worst away record in the Premier League following Tuesday’s 2-1 defeat at basement dwellers Sheffield United.
Matt Phillips gave Albion a half-time lead at Bramall Lane, but Jayden Bogle and Billy Sharp hit back for the Blades.
Sam Allardyce is pinning his hopes on fresh reinforcements helping to turn things around, having strengthened his squad with four new players during the transfer window.
Robert Snodgrass arrived in mid-January and Mbaye Diagne was brought in last week, while Okay Yokuslu and Ainsley Maitland-Niles were signed on deadline day.
Allardyce said: “I’ve done my best to help the squad. The club has done the best to help the squad that’s already here. We’ve done all we can possibly do in terms of improving the squad.
“We hope that the players who have come along to join the fight can make a big contribution as quickly as possible. We have to turn the corner and start picking up points.
“That might not be as easy for Okay from Spain and obviously with Mbaye catching up with the pace of the Premier League.
“Certainly, with Robert Snodgrass’ experience and Ainsley, an England international, will hopefully lift the players and show the quality we know they’ve got.”
The feeling is that this tough test and next week’s clash with Manchester United may come too soon, before a better run of fixtures versus Burnley, Brighton, Newcastle and Palace.
Carlos Vinicius went closest for Spurs against Chelsea and 16/5 for him to break the deadlock here completes our Tottenham vs West Brom betting tips.
Last West Brom line-up: Johnstone, Bartley, Ajayi, Townsend, O’Shea, Livermore, Phillips, Snodgrass, Robinson, Pereira, Diagne.
Grady Diangana is closing in on a return to the matchday squad after being out for five weeks with hamstring trouble.
