Spurs v Palace - betting preview with Marathonbet
19 February 2016|Tottenham Hotspur
With two wins in two this season against Palace in the Premier League and a current run of nine unbeaten in all competitions, it’s perhaps no surprise to see Spurs favourites to progress in Sunday’s FA Cup fifth round tie at the Lane.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men - who have won seven of those nine matches in the Premier League (five straight wins), FA Cup and Europa League - are priced 9/25 to qualify for the quarter-finals and 4/6 to win on Sunday.
This season’s encounters against Palace have been tight. A repeat of the 1-0 Spurs win at the Lane in September is 31/5 this time around and if you fancy a repeat of the 3-1 Spurs win at Selhurst Park only last month, Marathonbet go 23/2.
A theme of the two league fixtures has been goals in the second half - Heung-Min Son’s winner at the Lane, three of the four at Selhurst Park - and it’s 57/50 for most goals in the second half this time around.
Spurs maintained their record of scoring in every cup tie this season - now 11 - at Fiorentina and a Spurs win and over-2.5 goals in the game double is 131/100. Marathonbet also offer 39/25 for Spurs to score in both halves and 43/25 for Spurs to win to nil.
For punters looking at a Palace win, Alan Pardew’s men are priced 49/10 to win on Sunday.
