Our betting partners Sportingbet take a look at tonight's FA Cup tie at Watford.

Sportingbet preview - Watford

Tottenham Hotspur will aim to put a frustrating weekend of Premier League football behind them with a Friday night FA Cup clash with Watford, with 4/9 the price for them to take the sting out of the Hornets.

The Championship side have been under par on their own turf in the second tier, winning just five of 14 home games with Brighton their only top half victims. With that mind, they are 11/2 to raise their game and shock their lofty opponents, with the replay priced at 3/1.

If you expect Spurs to progress in style, you should jump on the 6/5 for them to win by at least a two-goal margin. Simply back them -1 goal in the handicap market if you fancy turning a £10 bet into £22.

We’ve got a host of Gareth Bale specials for the cup tie so how about the Welshman to notch at any time (11/8), to score from outside the box (10/1) or grab a second half strike (3/1)? We’ve also got 25/1 on any player to be sent off for stamping and 18/1 that Spurs play Arsenal in the Fifth Round.
