Having already knocked three Premier League teams out of the FA Cup, the odds for Millwall to beat Tottenham are 27/2 ahead of Sunday’s intriguing quarter-final clash.
The Lions have seen off Bournemouth, Watford and Leicester at the first attempt in earlier rounds, but all of those matches were at home and the big question is whether they can be as effective at White Hart Lane?
A Look At Tottenham’s Betting Odds
Tottenham were almost on the wrong end of a major upset in this competition when trailing Wycombe late on in round four, but Dele Alli and Heung-Min Son came to their rescue in a thrilling 4-3 victory.
Spurs looked to have learned their lesson when fielding a much stronger team from the outset when cruising to a 3-0 victory at Fulham and a subsequent exit from the Europa League should allow Mauricio Pochettino to treat this tie seriously too.
Harry Kane scored a hat-trick at Craven Cottage and has continued to shine in the Premier League, hitting another treble as Spurs thrashed Stoke 4-0 here and bagging a brace in last Sunday’s 3-2 defeat of Everton.
The England forward is an obvious pick to strike first here, but Kane to open the scoring at 2/1 is still a fair price on his current form.
A Look At Millwall’s Betting Odds
Millwall haven’t just been going well in the FA Cup, as they have also climbed up into the League One play-off places on the back of a 17-match unbeaten run in both of those competitions.
Ten of their 11 wins during that great run have come at The Den, though, while the Lions have had to settle for a point in four of their five away fixtures, so having to travel across London for this tie clearly reduces the chances of another giantkilling act.
However, veteran front man Steve Morison won’t be overawed by the venue as he featured for Norwich when they won and drew here in successive seasons a few years ago. He will give the Lions a chance to be direct whenever able to get forward.
We’re taking 23/20 for both teams to score in what should be a high-tempo match.
TOTTENHAM 3-2 Everton – Harry Kane (2), Dele Alli
MILLWALL 2-1 MK Dons – Lee Gregory (2)
