Sportingbet preview: Inter

Our official betting partners Sportingbet give their views and highlight the odds on offer for tonight's Champions League clash at Inter Milan.

Just as Tottenham get accustomed to the favourites tag, the Champions League presents its sternest test yet for Harry Redknapp's men as they head to the San Siro to face Inter.

The Champions League, Serie A and Coppa Italia holders make for formidable opponents indeed, so it's understandable they are Sportingbet's 3/5 favourites to move clear at the Group A summit.

Spurs can be backed at 4/1 to pull off one of the week's biggest shocks with victory in Milan, though the achievable draw could be the value bet at 13/5.

Inter romped to a 4-0 success at the expense of Werder Bremen in September, but their 2-2 draw away at FC Twente - as well as their domestic form - was less impressive and Spurs can lay legitimate claims to being their toughest opponents to date on the continent.

The Lilywhites will need to keep things tight if they are to avoid a similar fate to their German rivals however, and with Benitez famous for his tactical approach to European contests, this could be a low scoring affair. That could suit Spurs and if you take a punt on the 11/10 for Under 2.5 Goals - it could suit your pocket too!

In the absence of Rafael Van der Vaart, Peter Crouch and Roman Pavlyuchenko are considered the most likely scorers for the visitors and both are priced at 8/1 to grab the opener.

Luka Modric to notch first is a tasty 14/1, with an Anytime Goalscorer punt still worth a look at 5/1.

Those with less faith might still be tempted by a bet on the Handicap markets, where Spurs +1 goal can still be tipped to win at odds against (23/20) or draw (11/4) for a bigger score.
