West Ham v Tottenham betting tips: Kane out to nail Hammers
Preview and odds for Sunday’s Premier League clash
Spurs travel across London for what could be an enthralling derby so we examine the odds to find some West Ham v Tottenham betting tips.

Sunday’s match, which takes place at the London Stadium, kicks off at 2pm and is live on Sky Sports.
West Ham v Tottenham match odds
Spurs have won their last two in the Premier League since being beaten 3-1 at Arsenal and are fifth in the table, a point and two places above their hosts, who won 1-0 at Everton last week thanks to a superb second-half Angelo Ogbonna header.
West Ham have lost their last two home league games, both by a 2-1 scoreline.
In both instances they succumbed to late winners, with Manchester United scoring in the 89th-minute and Brentford stealing the points in the 90th-minute.
They have not lost three consecutively at home in the competition since a run of four under Manuel Pellegrini in December 2019.
West Ham, who maintained their 100 per cent record in Europa League Group H with a 3-0 home win over Genk on Thursday, are 7/5 to beat Tottenham in the West Ham v Tottenham betting tips.
Spurs looked back to their best when winning at Newcastle.
Despite going a goal down inside two minutes, Harry Kane and Son Heung-min caught the eye with the England captain registering his first Premier League goal of the season.
Tottenham have, however, lost each of their last four Premier League London derbies, as many as they had in their previous 17 such games combined (W7 D6).
Spurs, beaten 1-0 at Vitesse Arnhem in the Europa Conference League on Thursday having fielded a different XI to the one at Newcastle, are 2/1 to win at the London Stadium.
None of Tottenham’s last 14 Premier League games have ended level (W9 L5) and the draw is on offer at odds of 12/5.
West Ham v Tottenham head-to-head
West Ham were unbeaten in both Premier League meetings with Spurs last season (W1 D1) – they haven’t gone three league games without defeat against their London rivals since May 2006.
Tottenham have won three of their last four Premier League visits to the London Stadium, though they did lose this fixture 2-1 last season. It is 21/5 Spurs win but concede.
West Ham took four points off Tottenham last season, coming from 3-0 down to earn a point in a 3-3 draw at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last October.
Seven of the last 10 meetings saw both sides score and the odds for that to happen again are 8/13 in the West Ham v Tottenham betting tips.
West Ham v Tottenham key battles
Big-name players invariably score vital goals against West Ham – Kane is one of them.
He has netted 11 times against the Hammers, with three of those coming away from home.
Keeping Kane quiet is easier said than done, so that will be the Hammers’ biggest priority. The England skipper is 5/1 to outscore the opposition, too.
West Ham’s Michail Antonio has scored more Premier League goals against Spurs than he has versus any other side (five).
Three of those goals have been struck in one-goal victories while the other two came in 3-2 defeats. Antonio is 7/4 to net at any time.
It is perhaps worth noting West Ham’s two defeats this season both came at home after playing in the Europa League the preceding Thursday.
