Sportingbet preview: Fulham

Our betting partner Sportingbet's guide to the odds on offer for Sunday's FA Cup tie at Fulham.

Sportingbet preview: Fulham

Tottenham cross London to face Fulham in the FA Cup for a second straight season this weekend, and after doing the league double over their city rivals already this year, should be in confident mood as they bid to reach the fifth round.

Spurs came from behind to snatch a 2-1 win on the same battleground last October and also eliminated the Cottagers from last year’s competition with the help of a replay, so the 6/5 on another win come Sunday afternoon looks appealing. Fulham are 2/1 to end a sequence of seven games without a win against the visitors, while the replay is the biggest price at 11/5.

If it’s goals you’re backing, take your pick from Jermain Defoe (5/1), Rafael Van der Vaart (5/1) and newboy Steven Pienaar (14/1) for the First Goalscorer – or take a punt on Luka Modric to notch first in a 2-1 Spurs win and hope your £10 bet turns into £670!

The game caps a weekend packed with ties as various Davids take on their respective Goliaths up and down the country, and Sportingbet is once again offering Accumulator Refunds so you can take a shot at a big score. Simply back at least five selections from across the coupon in an Accumulator, and if just one tip lets you down, we’ll refund your stake as a free bet worth up to £25.

Give the Sportingbet Podcast a listen for our tips on the weekend’s FA Cup extravaganza, as well as horse racing, Steve Bull’s views and the chance to win a £50 Free Bet.

Meanwhile, time is ticking on your chance to win a luxury trip to the AC Milan v Spurs Champions League clash, courtesy of the Sportingbet Spurs Zone, with the entry deadline on February 1st.

Get closer to the club you love by visiting before the weekend is out and you’ll find a host of other prizes still up for grabs before their Monday deadline. Good luck!

Odds correct at time of writing...
