West Ham vs Tottenham predictions and betting tips for the Carabao Cup fixture on Wednesday 31st October. Who will get through this local derby and into the next round of the League Cup?
These teams recently met in the Premier League and Tottenham ran our 1-0 winners, now they play again just 48 hours after Spurs were last in action, against Manchester City in the rearranged Wembley clash.
Harry Winks has described the fixture pile-up for Tottenham as ‘ridiculous’ but the truth is that their stadium was ready on time, this would not have happened. Spurs face a tough trip to Wolves in the Premier League at the weekend so changes will have to be made by Pochettino this week, and that could play right into the hands of West Ham, who should be confident of victory here. The Hammers beat Spurs 3-2 in this competition last year and we’re predicting the same outcome here. The first of our League Cup predictions for this match is a West Ham victory in the 90 minutes.
Harry Kane has looked in need of a rest for a number of matches now and this is probably the time he will be taken out of the side. Spurs have a squad that can cope with changes but with Alli and Eriksen just coming back from injury they are struggling for match fit first team players to come in. With that in mind, we’re looking to the West Ham players for our anytime goalscorer tips on this match. Michael Antonio started and scored in the last round of the competition and we’re backing him to do the same again here.
The rivalry between these two teams always makes for an entertaining fixture and we’re expecting nothing less here. The banker bet for our betting tips would be both teams to score but we will combine that prediction to make up a correct score tip for this match. The selection we are going for here is a 2-1 West Ham victory. The hosts smashed eight past Macclesfield in the last round and followed that up with an impressive 3-1 home win over Manchester United – the expected changes to the Tottenham starting line-up means a West Ham win is the bet here.
