Tottenham vs Rochdale: 2018 FA Cup Soccer Preview and Predictions

Soccer | 5th Round

Tottenham will be in action in the FA Cup and the Spurs look to win some silverware this season. The FA Cup is the best chance Tottenham have of winning a trophy this season so I am expecting them to play with tons of effort as they take on Rochdale midweek.

Rochdale managed to force a rematch as they got a 2-2 draw against Tottenham at home one week ago. That draw would have given the side tons of confidence and hope and they head into this game. A win in this game will be massive for Rochdale since it is not often that the team gets to play at Wembley Stadium and against a team as good as Tottenham.

As far as the Spurs are concerned, this is a game that they should not be playing. Tottenham should have won away from home and the players and the manager know this. This time around I am expecting Tottenham to take no chances and kill this game early. It is well known how good Tottenham are and at home, it seems like they will be even harder to hold out. I am expecting Tottenham to come out hard and win this game handsomely since the draw in the first game against Rochdale was embarrassing for the club.

As far as betting is concerned, we are not getting a good enough price to bet on the outright market so the Tottenham to win wager is not an option. The best bet in the over 2.5 goals. I expect Tottenham to smash Rochdale by many goals and scoring 3 goals at home should not be an issue for Spurs. We are getting a good price on this wager and as a result, it is the bet which I am going to suggest.

 

Pick:
Over 2.5 goals
