Andre Villas-Boas takes charge of his first competitive home match in charge of Tottenham as Victor Chandler announce free bets on the game and report punters are piling into their price of 6/1 for the away win.
Spurs host a West Brom side that tormented Liverpool in their Premiership opener – winning 3-0, as punters fancy the upset at White Hart Lane.
The former Chelsea boss will be keen to get three points on the board too, especially as his team suffered defeat on the opening day at Newcastle.
Following a disappointing spell at Stamford Bridge, Villas-Boas needs to rebuild his reputation in English football and a slow start to the campaign certainly isn’t the way to do that. Especially when you consider Tottenham’s aim is to make the top four.
Victor Chandler will offer free bets worth £25/€25 to spend on any Premiership outright or Premiership match betting market this weekend, including Tottenham v West Brom! Exclusive to SqueakyBumTime.com
It has been a rather frustrating time for him in the transfer market this summer of course, but he received a boost this week when Emmanuel Adebayor completed his move from Manchester City.
The former Arsenal striker – who had a successful loan spell with Spurs last season – is likely to go straight into the starting line-up this weekend as Tottenham look to add to their attacking threat.
As for West Brom, they will know how tough a challenge it is to get something from White Hart Lane. Only six of the 19 teams visiting Tottenham last season left with anything other than a defeat.
However, the Baggies were also expected to find it tough against Liverpool on the opening day. They started superbly though, winning 3-0 to give Brendan Rodgers a miserable start as manager.
It was a display and a result that will give West Brom – who have Steve Clarke in charge after Roy Hodgson’s departure to England – the belief that they can replicate last season’s 10th place finish.
The pressure is off them this weekend too with Tottenham the comfortable favourites. West Brom will play their natural game and hope to capitalise on a potentially nervous start from the home side.
Overall, this should be a very entertaining contest between two teams that like to play their football on the floor.
It gets underway at 3pm on Saturday afternoon.
