Our official betting partner Sportingbet take a look at the odds on offer for tonight's Carling Cup third round tie against Arsenal at the Lane...

One of English football's great rivalries is renewed on Tuesday night after the Carling Cup hat saw fit to draw Spurs v Arsenal at the first attempt this season, and the home side are 6/5 favourites to repeat their 2007/08 success.

That 5-1 drubbing at the Lane lives on fondly in Spurs fans' memories and with Arsene Wenger surely set to stick with the kids in this competition, who's to say there can't be a repeat showing of that 100/1 shot?

Much will depend on what kind of side Harry Redknapp selects now that Tottenham share their rival's Champions League consideration, but the inevitable Gunners' youngsters are 19/10 with Sportingbet.

The draw at 90 minutes could be a worthy punt if you think we're in for a tight encounter on Tuesday night, with 23/10 on offer for the prospect of extra time. And if you consider it a close enough contest, perhaps the To Qualify market is for you, where Spurs are 13/20 and Arsenal 11/10 to reach the Fourth Round.

If on the other hand it's another Gunner-thumping you fancy, you can take your pick from 3-0 (20/1), 3-1 (16/1) or even 4-1 (40/1) for some tastier prices.

Expect some squad players to do the business for Spurs? Tip Giovani to be First Goalscorer at 7/1 or else back the likes of Sandro (25/1) and Niko Kranjcar (8/1) in the same market.
