Tottenham vs Middlesbrough Predictions and Betting Tips – 9/1 FA Cup Bet Builder
Tottenham vs Middlesbrough predictions and betting tips for the FA Cup third-round replay on Tuesday 14th January. See our three best bets for this match and how to get 9/1 for all three selections to win.
Spurs were lucky to escape the first match with a 1-1 draw after a poor performance, however, they should be good enough to beat the Championship side back on their home turf. Jose Mourinho will want to provide a trophy for the Spurs fans and the FA Cup is as good an opportunity as any to do just that.

Tottenham vs Middlesbrough Predictions
Tottenham are without Harry Kane for most of the rest of the season after his knee injury.
Spurs needed a 61st-minute equaliser from Lucas Moura at the Riverside to force this replay.
Middlesbrough had a terrible start to the season but are now unbeaten in six matches.
Anytime Goalscorer Tip – Lucas Moura
With Kane injured, Brazilian Lucas Moura is likely to be a regular figure in Jose Mourinho’s starting line-ups and he is tipped to get on the scoresheet in this match. He started in an attacking role against Liverpool at the weekend and scored in the first match between these two. Christian Eriksen is still the subject of transfer speculation so we don’t know if he’ll start the match, and Dele Alli is also likely to play. If Mourinho does make a couple of changes, hopefully Moura keeps his place with Jose surely keen for a good run in the FA Cup.
Tottenham to win by 2 or more goals
Spurs need a confidence-boosting win and performance and this might be the ideal game to do that. They played reasonably well against Liverpool on Sunday but still couldn’t score, so this match against Middlesbrough looks a good opportunity to put some fans’ concerns to ease. They have only scored in one of their last three at home but did beat Burnley 5-0 prior to that run. Players such as Alli, Son and Moura are more than capable of tearing teams apart and if they are allowed to release the shackles against lower league opposition, Spurs could get a few goals in this game.
Jonny Howson to be booked
The Middlesbrough midfielder has picked up six yellow cards this season and is the man to break up attacks. With Spurs expected to use the pace of Moura and Son in this game, he will be the key man in trying to break up attacks and that could lead to him going into the referee’s book. He has been playing in a back three for parts of this season, which makes him even more susceptible to a booking against much better opposition than he faces in the Championship week in week out. Howson to be booked is the last selection in our Tottenham vs Middlesbrough predictions for the FA Cup third-round replay on Tuesday.
