    William Hill Betting Preview

    Fulham - 19 February

    Spurs are favourites for Sunday’s fifth round tie at Craven Cottage.

    Official Partner William Hill price Mauricio Pochettino’s team at 10/11 with the draw at 5/2 and Fulham 10/3.

    Of course, the FA Cup is never quite as cut and dried as that, as Spurs found out in a thrilling 4-3 win against League Two side Wycombe in the fourth round.

    For a start, Fulham’s recent home form has to be mentioned. Since hammering Huddersfield 5-0 in October, the Cottagers have won seven, drawn two and lost only one of their last 10 home matches in all competitions, scoring 28 goals. They’ve won the last four on the trot including a 4-1 win against Premier League side Hull City in the last round.

    To counter that, Spurs have a fine record against lower league teams (Championship and below) in the FA Cup. In the last 20 years, Spurs have played 28 times against lower league teams, winning 20, drawing five and losing just three.

    Fulham have scored 52 goals in the Championship, bettered only by Norwich and Newcastle. It looks like goals could be on the menu – a Spurs win with both teams to score is 23/10.

    In terms of correct scores, William Hill offer 8/1 for a 1-0 Spurs win, 9/1 for 2-0, 15/2 for 2-1, 12/1 for 3-1, 20/1 for 3-2 and, wait for it, 80/1 for a repeat of the 4-3 win against Wycombe.

    Heung-Min Son has scored in round three and round four and is 5/1 to score first, 29/20 to score at anytime. Vincent Janssen also scored against Wycombe and is 11/2 to score first, 13/8 to score anytime. 

    How about Mousa Dembele to score against his old team? He is 12/1 to score first, 19/5 to score at anytime with William Hill.

    William Hill also offer enhanced odds on a Heung-Min Son special to score at anytime in a 2-0, 2-1 or 3-1 Spurs win – 7/1.

    How about this? If you fancy Son to score first in a repeat of the 4-3 win against Wycombe in the fourth round, William Hill offer 600/1! Son to score anytime in a 4-3 win is 125/1. Now that would be the magic of the FA Cup!
