Betting Tips & Predictions

Harry Kane could go from scoring against Juventus in midweek to Rochdale this weekend

Rochdale lost a tight away league game with Bristol Rovers midweek 3-2 with striker Ian Henderson netting twice while Tottenham fought back from two down against Juventus in Turin. Spurs could potentially heavily rotate in this tie with new signing from Paris Saint-Germain Lucas Moura pushing for his first start. Moura is 8/5 to score at any stage of this game.

Rochdale is a massive 25/1 to win this game and has won just six games at home in all competitions this season. They lost 4-0 to Premier League Stoke City in the League Cup back in August. Another 4-0 loss for them here has odds of 17/2.

Spurs are firm favourites at 1/7 and dispatched Newport County 2-0 at home in a replay after drawing 1-1 at Rodney Parade. A similar outcome of 1-1 would be worth 17/1 here.

It is 7/1 for any type of draw in this match while an unlikely 0-0 stalemate could get you odds of 22/1.

Harry Kane can be found at 2/1 to score the first goal of the game while Fernando Llorente who has started in all three FA Cup games so far is 7/2.

Rochdale’s Ian Henderson can be found at 14/1 to score the opening goal of the match.

Match Summary

1

Look out for:

Harry Kane to continue his goalscoring run, Kane has three goals in two FA Cup matches so far this season and thirty-three in all competitions. A brace in the 3-0 win over Wimbledon in Round Three and the sole goal in the 1-1 draw at Newport. It is 15/8 for Kane to score two or more goals. A Kane hattrick is worth odds of 13/2.

2

We fancy:

A hefty win for the high flying Premier League side, a 3-0 win has odds of 5/1 while a 4-0 win is around 8/1 and a big 5-0 victory is worth 14/1. Tottenham have scored more than two goals in thirteen of their games in all competitions so far this season.

3

It’s a long shot, but:

A half-time/ full-time result of Rochdale/Tottenham is around 28/1. You can find odds of 12/1 for Rochdale to be leading at halftime. And for Spurs to win from behind odds of 15/2 can be found. Tottenham have fallen behind in twelve of their last twenty-five matches in all competitions.
