Tottenham Hotspur fans will be hoping a return to White Hart Lane brings back the stylish football of weeks gone by after reaching the FA Cup Fifth Round in more workmanlike fashion at Watford.
Visitors Wigan should provoke mixed feelings in the home faithful, given the varying fortunes Spurs have enjoyed against the perennial strugglers. Results at the Lane include last year’s 1-0 defeat and the 9-1 mauling of two seasons ago, but surely at 2/9 the three points are assured?
Wigan are 12/1 to repeat one of last season’s shock results and given only Man City have matched that feat in the past two seasons, the Latics would celebrate the 19/4 draw like a victory.
Spurs have notched at least once in their last 21 games, while Wigan have conceded in over 90% of away games and seen 72% of them go Over 2.5 goals. That would explain why three or more goals is 1/2 but a fourth strike would mean a 7/5 payday on Over 3.5.
If you’re expecting a tighter affair, or just can’t see the league’s lowest-scoring attack finding the net, take Spurs to win to nil at an attractive 17/20 and turn a £20 bet into £37. Good luck!
