Sportingbet, our official betting partner, give us the rundown on some of the markets on offer ahead of Saturday's trip to Wigan...

Surely even a Carling Cup exit can’t dampen the mood after that 4-0 win over Liverpool last weekend, so are we being too generous by offering Spurs at 9/10 to beat Wigan on Saturday?

Getting close to even money against the Latics must surely earn some interest though be warned, Wigan took four points off Harry Redknapp’s side last term. That fact is tempered by the 9-1 win back in 2009/10, however, and explains why the Latics are 11/4 for the win and 9/4 to even take a point on their own patch.

If you expect the goals to flow more freely than midweek, there’s 10/11 on offer for three or more in the game, while Spurs to be winning at half-time and full-time is 7/4 in the Double Result market.

Who’s your tip to score? Emmanuel Adebayor is on form and is 9/2 to find the net first, while strike partner Jermain Defoe is 5/4 to notch at any time. And if you want bigger odds, how about a Gareth Bale opener in a 3-1 win courtesy of Scorecast? That bet turns a £10 into £90 if it comes in.

Meanwhile, the Champions League returns next week and that means you can get involved in our brand new promotional game – Power:Play. The idea is simple: place as many bets as you wish between 7pm and 10pm on Champions League nights and for every winning selection you’ll score 1 point, while every losing selection will cost you -1 point.

You can bet pre-match or in:play, on anything from goalscorers to next throw-in and even earn extra points for accumulators too, as long as bets are placed and settled within the period. And if you finish in the top three scorers we’ll multiply your winnings up to 5x!

Good luck!
