Premier League Betting: West Ham vs TottenhamPublished March 2, 2016 by Sol FH
Tottenham can move into first place in the league if they beat West Ham tonight at 19:45 GMT.
The Hot Spurs are within one win of the lead in the Premier League. After Leicester was held to a draw last night against West Brom, Tottenham has a window of opportunity that could change the remainder of the season.
With only 11 games left in the 2015/16 Premier League season the top of the table could not be anymore shocking. There is no Manchester United, no Chelsea, Man. City is ten points back and Arsenal don't look like they have what it takes to catch up either. Leicester and Tottenham are the favorites to finish the season in first and second position, which team makes it to top spot is still a big question.
West Ham are in sixth position in the league, and they have are unbeaten at Boleyn Ground. The problem is that they have only won three of their last 17 meetings against the Spurs, and with the way that Tottenham is playing right now, West Ham needs to make some magic in order to win or draw tonight. The home side will need to find a way to win without key players like Sam Bryam (suspended), Winston Reid, James Tomkins, Joey O'Brien and Enner Valencia; all out with injuries.
Taking over top spot in the Premier League is on the minds of every player and fan of the Hot Spurs. For the first time in 55 years, they have a serious chance to win the league. Tottenham is on par to win seven consecutive league matches, which would be a first in 49 years. They have not lost a single match in their last 12 away games, and Boleyn Ground does not scare Mauricio Pochettino's side.
