Colchester v Spurs - betting preview with Marathonbet
29 January 2016|Tottenham Hotspur
It’s little surprise that Spurs are odds-on favourites to beat Colchester United in the FA Cup fourth round at the Weston Homes Community Stadium on Saturday (12.45pm).
Unbeaten in their last nine away games in all competitions (and since the opening day in the Premier League), Mauricio Pochettino’s men take on a U’s side currently sitting bottom of League One.
Spurs continue to have the best defensive record in the Premier League (19 goals conceded in 23 matches) and a win to nil (any scoreline) is a slightly more generous 153/100.
It’s 69/100 for a double of win and 2.5 goals in the game, 9/10 for Spurs to be winning at half-time and full-time and perhaps the best value of all, 39/20 for Spurs to win both halves.
In terms of the goalscoring markets, one pattern to emerge in the last two games is Nacer Chadli scoring the last goal - he's 37/5 to make it a hat-trick after scoring last at Leicester in the FA Cup and Palace last weekend. Chadli to score first and a Spurs 2-0 win scorecast is 37/5.
Heung-Min Son scored first at Leicester in the third round replay and the South Korean is 29/5 to do it again.
Spurs have lost just one of their last 13 matches against lower-league opposition in the FA Cup but if any punters fancy going for a giant-killing, Colchester are 17/2 to win. It’s worth noting that the U’s have won just three times since October 20 – all in the FA Cup. Marathonbet also go 22/5 on the draw.
