Tottenham Hotspur v Cheltenham Town latest odds, news and free bets

Top marks to anyone who can predict the team that Harry Redknapp will select for this match. Tottenham are challenging for the Premier League title this season and there is no way that stars like Gareth Bale, Rafael Van der Vaart and Emmanuel Adebayor will be risked in this game

Perhaps we will see a similar Spurs team to the one that featured in the Europa League earlier this season, although the bookies still expect Tottenham to be far too strong for their League Two opponents. Victor Chandler (£25 free bets) offer a best price 1/7 about the north London side booking their place in the fourth round.

Roman Pavlyuchenko is usually the forward that leads the line for Spurs in cup matches and the Russian will fancy his chances of adding to the four goals already scored this term, with bet365 (£200 free betting) making him a 4/1 chance to open the scoring.

However, we shouldn’t take Cheltenham too lightly considering they are currently enjoying excellent form in League Two. The Robins won at Tranmere and Luton in orevious rounds and it has been nine games since they last tasted defeat. Perhaps it is not beyond the realms of possibility that they might land a draw at 9/1.

As for the mother of all upsets at White Hart Lane, that is on offer at 25/1 and Mark Yates’ team warmed up nicely for this match with a 2-1 win at Port Vale. Darryl Duffy has eleven goals to his name this term and will look to stretch that second string Spurs team.

We should at least expect the League Two side to put up some resistance to their opponents and a 2-1 win for Tottenham at odds of 12/1 looks far more attractive than a potential cricket score.
