Spurs vs Newport under the lights.
The Welsh will arrive with their tails up and deservedly so after a better than credible performance at Rodney Park on the 27th of last month.
The 1-1 draw was very nearly a banana skin, and it was a combination of County running out of steam and the ever supersonic Harry Kane in the 82nd minute that spared Tottenham’s blushes.
After that game Harry said “It was very difficult and credit to Newport, they had a game plan, made it difficult for us and we weren’t great, especially in the first half.”
Spurs are understandably strong favourites for tonight’s re-run, but have the bookies gone berserk, pricing them at 1/14 on?! A draw at 90minutes is 11/1 and an away win is 14/1.
If you’re looking for any value in the betting then you’ll find slim pickings looking for it from a Spurs player. Better value is to be found with either First Goalscorer or Anytime Scorer markets for Newport. It’s not out of the question that they might pinch a consolation prize this evening, even though an actual win is surely out of the question.
Tottenham to score in both halves might be free money, even at 2/5. If you want to channel your inner sadomasochist then Spurs to win on penalties is 40/1!
