The Premier League is back this weekend and my latest Asian Handicap betting preview focuses on the game between West Brom and Tottenham.

Before the international break, West Brom drew 1-1 against Sunderland and were disappointed not to come away with all 3 points. Nacer Chadli gave the Baggies the lead, but a late goal scored by Patrick van Aanholt meant each side came away with a point.
Chadli signed for West Brom from Spurs in the summer and he’s proving to be an excellent signing. Chadli has already scored 3 league goals this campaign and has added a goal-scoring dimension to the Baggies’ midfield.
Saturday’s game against Spurs is no doubt their toughest match of the season to date. Tony Pulis is doing a good job this season however and his side are currently 3 games unbeaten.
Tottenham secured an impressive 2-0 victory over league leaders Manchester City last time round. A Kolarov own goal and one from Dele Alli sealed the victory, which put Spurs only 1 point behind City in the Premier League table.
Man City have a tough fixture against Everton this weekend and therefore Tottenham have a real chance to go top of the table, should City falter.
Spurs are now the only unbeaten side in the Premier League and have won 5 out of their last 7 games, including their last 4.
In their last away game Tottenham beat Middlesbrough 2-1, with Son Heung-min scoring a brace. Son has been Tottenham’s star player this season, scoring 5 goals across all competitions.
Spurs have scored 7 goals in their last 3 away games and the loss of Harry Kane through injury doesn’t seem to be affecting results at this stage.
West Brom are on a good run of form and as they have the home advantage I think they will cause Spurs some problems on Saturday. A draw is a likely outcome and therefore I recommend backing West Brom +0.75 on the Asian Handicap betting market, which looks good value.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: West Brom +0.75 @ 1.97 with 188BET
Prices correct at time of writing.
