Tranmere vs Tottenham Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview: FA Cup

Tranmere betting tips

Tranmere vs Tottenham betting tips and predictions for Friday’s televised FA Cup third round clash. Can Spurs mount a serious bid for silverware or will they be found wanting in the North West?

Top Betting Tip: It’s going to take something special for Tranmere to make it into the hat for the next round and quite frankly the majority of their fans will be happy to witness what is undoubtedly a marquee tie at Prenton Park. Rovers are huge outsiders here, with good reason, and a lot of perceptual ‘smart money’ will surely be going on Spurs to win with a -1 handicap.

Tranmere vs Tottenham Predictions

It’s been a tumultuous decade or so for Tranmere fans and so it makes a nice change for them to have something to look forward to with Spurs visiting on Friday. So nearly a Premier League team on multiple occasions during the 90s, top flight status cruelly evaded them via play-off failures and ultimately preceded a stark decline resulting in relegation to the National League. Things are looking up for the Super White Army now, though, with them currently sitting 9th in League Two ahead of a mouthwatering FA Cup fixture. There won’t be many who see them progressing further than the third round but reaching this stage still qualifies as a success – particularly in monetary terms. You can get 8/11 on the visitors winning by a two-goal margin or greater inside 90 minutes, with Coral offering the best price on this.

We’re now very much at the stage where people are running out of superlatives to describe Harry Kane and his goalscoring exploits. The Walthamstow-born forward was recently awarded an MBE in the New Years honours list and is once again on course to break the 30-goal barrier for a third successive campaign.

There are a few question marks over whether Mauricio Pochettino will be looking to rest his star man but Son Heung-Min’s absence and a general lack of reliable alternatives would suggest that Kane will certainly feature at Prenton Park. There’s no fun (and no value!) in backing the 25-year-old to score anytime here so we’re instead plumping for him to score two or more inside 90 minutes.

The second selection for Friday’s FA Cup predictions on the match is Harry Kane to score a brace and the best odds for this are 15/8 at Paddy Power, where you get a £20 cash risk free bet when you open an account.

Tranmere vs Tottenham Result Prediction

Nothing’s ever straightforward in football, particularly when Tottenham are concerned, and that was abundantly clear once again last weekend when the Londoners limped to an embarrassing 3-1 defeat at home to Wolves. From being 1-0 up so early, I’m sure nearly everyone would have expected Spurs to go on and win the game convincingly – but alas, they did not.

Tranmere, on the other hand, have taken their return to the Football League like a duck to water and are nicely positioned just outside the play-off spots. The general consensus is that they’ll have a lot to contend with on Friday night and even the most ardent Rovers fan would surely struggle to fancy them.

I can see a few goals being scored in front of the TV cameras – with the vast majority being struck past Scott Davies in the Tranmere Rovers net. You can get 23/20 with William Hill on this game serving up four goals or more as part of a Tottenham win, and that’s where my money will be going. Spurs have scored for fun in recent weeks – and against Premier League opposition – so you’d be entitled to believe they could replicate that against one of the 92’s weakest sides.


Tranmere vs Tottenham Preview & Team News

Spurs come into this one off the back of a 3-0 victory on New Year’s Day and will now be setting their sights on a trophy that has eluded them for very many years. Pochettino’s legacy at Tottenham will be defined by a number of things but failing to win silverware would undoubtedly be regarded as a black mark on the Argentinian’s record.

Tranmere have already seen off two teams to be where they are in the competition and will be hoping to put on a show underneath the floodlights. They are however huge outsiders, with the visitors priced up as short as 1/5 for this one.


Team News

Son Heung-Min declared that he was ‘sad’ to be leaving his teammates this week, with Asia Cup commitments currently taking precedent for the Korean.

Kyle Walker-Peters and Ben Davies are both likely to start for Spurs after being unused subs in Tottenham’s recent win over Cardiff City.

For the hosts, James Norwood appears most likely to lead the line and could be partnered in attack by Cole Stockton.
