Premier League title contenders Tottenham head to Championship strugglers Wycombe Wanderers in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Monday night. The hosts are rooted to the foot of the table in the second tier, with Spurs the heavy favourites to win the tie. Football betting online is what the Spin Sports blog focuses on – all the latest predictions, updates and tips every week!

Past Meetings

This will be only the second ever meeting between these clubs. Their first was at the same stage of the FA Cup in 2017, with Son Heung-min scoring a dramatic 97th-minute winner as Tottenham beat Wycombe 4-3 in a thriller at White Hart Lane. A repeat of that 4-3 Spurs win here is priced at 46.00 in the betting.

Team News

Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth won’t be tearing his luscious hair out over his injury list ahead of this game. Anthony Stewart is the only player currently listed as doubtful for the home team, although the long-serving defender could be in contention following a knock.

Visiting boss Jose Mourinho also has just the one player on the treatment table right now. Giovani Lo Celso has a hamstring injury, with the latest update last week stating he will be out for a little while. How long exactly is unclear at this stage.

Wycombe vs. Tottenham Preview and Predictions

A welcome distraction or a game they’d rather do without? Wycombe’s attitude to this game against Tottenham is likely to be crucial to their chances of causing an upset against the Premier League outfit. There’s no question the away team’s manager will be desperate to win this tie.

Mourinho is a serial winner and has already got Spurs into the EFL Cup final this season, his first full campaign in charge. Tottenham haven’t won a trophy since lifting the League Cup in 2008, while their last FA Cup triumph was all the way back in 1991.

Winning the Premier League is going to be a tall order for this Spurs team, but they’re certainly right in the hunt as we enter the second half of this strange and unpredictable season. Mourinho will surely name a strong line-up for this game, and that could spell trouble for Wycombe.

The Wanderers are rooted to the bottom of the Championship table at the midway point of their 46-game season. Blues fans have only seen their team win one of their last 13 league fixtures, losing seven. Avoiding relegation is the priority for them this season.

The Chairboys beat Preston North End 4-1 in the third round of the cup, but are the classic underdogs in this tie. They are priced at 8.00 in the latest odds, with Tottenham available at 1.23. This game could go to extra-time if the scores are level after 90 minutes. That’s 5.75 to happen, with Spurs 1.06 to qualify and Wycombe 5.75.

Recommended Bets

Tottenham to win to nil at 2.05

Spurs have only conceded two goals in their last five games, with that run including their 5-0 victory over plucky lower-league outfit Marine in the FA Cup third round.

Tottenham to win 5-0 at 18.00

Spurs may not find this game as easy as the last round, but they still have the quality to blow Wycombe away if they score early and turn it on.
