Tottenham Hotspur v Wigan Athletic latest odds, news and free bets

The midweek banker of the Premier League list of matches would appear to be Tottenham Hotspur, although we only have to look at last season’s result in this fixture to know that surprises can happen

Wigan Athletic arrived at White Hart Lane in August 2010 after thrashings from Blackpool and Chelsea, although Roberto Martinez’s team claimed a 1-0 victory in north London and Harry Redknapp will certainly be warning against complacency on Tuesday.

Spurs are a best price 1/4 (William Hill £25 free bets) to claim a victory which would keep them in touch with the Manchester clubs at the top of the Premier League, with Tottenham having been unlucky to lose 3-2 at Eastlands ten days ago.

Since then, the third-placed team in the Premier League have made progress in the FA Cup by winning at Watford and will hope that Gareth Bale has recovered from a minor injury to line up in this particular match. The Welshman continues to be a revelation for his team and can be backed at 6/1 (Ladbrokes bookmaker) to score the opening goal.

Ladbrokes are noticeably offering the best prices on First Goalscorer across the board for this match and that includes 9/2 about Rafael Van der Vaart, 12/1 about Luka Modric and 12/1 that Aaron Lennon breaks the deadlock.

Can Wigan pull off another magnificent victory? We can be certain that the Latics will try and make things difficult for their opponents by defending deep and looking to exploit any gaps on the counter-attack. However, heavy defeats have been experienced in away games to Manchester United and Manchester City.

The away win is a 16/1 chance and a draw can’t be completely ruled out at 11/2 considering that Spurs have had difficulty breaking teams down in recent games at White Hart Lane.
