Tottenham Hotspur v Newport– click here to bet
Spurs are currently 5th in the English Premier League after a thrilling 2-2 away draw at Liverpool on the weekend. They now return to FA cup duty looking to book their place in the 5th round after a 1-1 away draw at Newport in January. They previously had no problem at home in seeing off AFC Wimbledon 3-0 in the 3rd round. Spurs have scored 13 goals in their last 3 home FA Cup matches against lower League opposition.
Newport currently sit 11th in League Two but they are on a disappointing run which has seen them lose 2 matches in a row and only take 1 point from the last 9 they have played for. They are coming off a 2-0 away defeat to Colchester on the weekend. They booked their spot in the 4th round of the FA Cup courtesy of home wins over Walsall, Cambridge and Leeds before the 1-1 home draw with Spurs and this will be their 1st road trip of the campaign. Newport have never made it further than the 4th round of the FA Cup.
Tottenham Hotspur 1/8
Suggested bet: Handicap, Tottenham (-2) at 9/10.
Spurs are playing some excellent football and I fancy them to put away a Newport side that are struggling on the road. This bet would have arrived in the last 2 Spurs home matches against lower League opposition in the FA cup.
