Swansea v Spurs – FA Cup Betting Guide: 17th March 2018

 

FA Cup Qtr-final action this weekend and we get going with Spurs travelling to Swansea.

The sides have already met twice in the league this season with those matches finishing Swansea 0-2 Spurs and 0-0, so the Londoners will head into the game with the clear upper-hand.

In fact, The Swans have scored just 1 goal in their last 4 head-to-heads with Spurs. However, it is worth pointing out both teams have scored in 6 of the last 7 head-to-heads at the Liberty Stadium. Both teams to score can be backed at 2.10.

The teams have also never met in the FA Cup but if you do fancy either of them to go all the way in this competition then Spurs are on offer at 3.00, while Swansea are a massive 34.00 in the outright betting. Spurs have won the FA Cup 8 times, while Swansea have never won it, or even been in a final.

The match betting ahead of this game sees Spurs as the clear favourites at just 1.33, with the draw 5.00 and Swansea 9.00.

You have to go back to 1991 (League Cup) to find the last time Swansea beat Spurs, while the Londoners head into this game unbeaten in their last 15 against Swansea, plus they’ve actually won 11 of their last 13 against the Welsh side.

Dele Alli has netted 2 in the last 3 so he’s a player to have on your radar, while it goes without saying Spurs’ leading scorer this season – Harry Kane – is going to short in the scoring markets. If you fancy the Swans to score then Ayew, with 6 league goals this season, might be their best chance.

However, the call here is for goals. In 7 of the last 9 head-to-heads we’ve seen OVER 2.5 GOALS scored so with a 78% strike-rate on that bet paying out then the 1.80 on offer looks fair value.

BEST BET: OVER 2.5 GOALS @1.80
