Tottenham have stuttered a touch of late in the Premier League but there have been extenuating circumstances to some of their recent defeats and they look set to bounce back at home to West Ham.
Stan James price Andre Villas-Boas’ side at 4/6 to secure all three points but they won’t have it all their own way against a decent Hammers side and a close affair looks to be on the cards at White Hart Lane. There’s therefore a modicum of value in bet365’s 3/1 for the hosts to nick it by one but at slightly heftier odds of 19/5 (BetVictor), a home success following a level first period possesses marginally more appeal.
At St Mary’s, Southampton have been well backed to beat Newcastle and are now just 11/8 via Paddy Power to make it back-to-back victories following their crucial 3-1 win at QPR. Saints look the most likely to come out on top but it looks safer to concentrate on goals on the south coast and Skybet’s 7/4 for the clash to produce four or more.
