Happy Hammers take on the Slippery Spurs

Monday night football, of the spherical nature! Tonight’s London derby (or, in lingo Americano, rivalry game) pits Tottenham against West Ham. At first glance this doesn’t look like the kind of matchup to make you clear your scheduled and take the phone off the hook, however it actually has the potential to be reasonably entertaining.

Tottenham are a sparkly new, entertaining side since they made the switch from Ramos to Redknapp. They are playing some neat and tidy soccer-football and scoring goals for fun. West Ham being the home side means the match should stay competitive. There could even be a few kicks to the shin, a couple of hefty challenges, and a few yellow cards bandied about as the two teams battle for local bragging rights/glory.

Having seen both sides play recently, Spurs are definitely playing the better football, are the more complete side and possess the greater firepower. Therefore, Tottenham to win tonight looks pretty tasty at 11/8.

Just saying.
