Middlesbrough vs. Tottenham Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews

Boro boss Jonathan Woodgate will be a familiar face to the away fans, but they will be no chance of crossed loyalties in this clash.

The former England international has eased some of the pressure on his position with three successive league wins ahead of this game.

However, Mourinho has an excellent record in domestic cup competitions, with titles at Porto, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Manchester United.

The visitors will field a young side, and the Portuguese boss will hope their quality will edge out Boro’s experience.

Mourinho knows this is his best opportunity for silverware in his first season at the club, and even with a changed side, they should have enough to win, priced at 0.3.

Spurs will have to work for it, against a Boro side that is pushing to get up the Championship table in 2020.

With that in mind, as Tottenham win, with under 2.5 goals scored is available at 2.5.

Recommended Bets

Tottenham to win 2-0 at 6.0

Boro will make life difficult for their top-flight visitors, but Spurs have plenty of attacking quality and Mourinho is a consistent fan of this competition.

Troy Parrott to sore anytime at 1.2

With Kane likely to be rested for the game, Ireland international Parrott could see himself thrust into the limelight. The teenage is highly rated at the club, and he has an impressive goal scoring record at U18 and U23 level.
