Wycombe vs Tottenham: Spurs to see off plucky Chairboys

Kick-off: 1945, 25/01/2021

Stadium: Adams Park

TV: BT Sport 1

Championship basement dwellers Wycombe are expected to find Tottenham too hot to handle in Monday night’s FA Cup fourth-round tie.

However, Wanderers are in good form going forward at present, drawing a blank up front in only one of their last nine matches in all competitions.

Spurs may also make changes at the back ahead of facing Liverpool in the Premier League three days later.

That points us towards 13/10 for an away win and both teams to score for our first Wycombe vs Tottenham prediction.

A Look At Wycombe Wanderers’ Betting Odds

Wycombe gave Spurs an almighty scare in this tournament four years ago, leading 3-2 at White Hart Lane until Dele Alli and Son Heung-min struck in the closing stages.

The Chairboys will have home advantage this time and can take heart from some encouraging recent displays at Adams Park.

Wanderers beat Cardiff 2-1 here in their final Championship game of 2020, to end an 11-match winless run.

Middlesbrough then came from behind to prevail 3-1 here, but Gareth Ainsworth’s side enjoyed a 4-1 cup triumph over Preston last time out.

Three goals in the first 25 minutes put them on their way, with new loan signing Admiral Muskwe setting up Fred Onyedinma for the opener, before Joe Jacobson and Josh Knight found the net.

North End pulled one back from the penalty spot, but Alex Samuel wrapped up a convincing victory late on.

Ainsworth said: “I’m a big believer in the FA Cup, I’ll treat it with the utmost respect and hopefully we can have a nice run.”

Wycombe, who have been hampered by coronavirus issues, do have a fragile defence, though, and no team has conceded more Championship goals than them this term.

We like 9/1 for a 3-1 away win from the Wycombe vs Tottenham odds.

A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds

Tottenham are already through to the EFL Cup final and made an assured start to this competition with a 5-0 romp at non-league Marine.

Brazilian forward Carlos Vinicius hit a first-half hat-trick that day, while Lucas Moura and 16-year-old Alfie Devine also netted.

Following that professional performance, Jose Mourinho declared: “We start seriously and we finish seriously.

“We tried to kill the game as soon as we could and we did that. We were ready for everything. We didn’t want to be surprised.

“The second half was a question of controlling the result, control the energy, control the potential injury, and of course I’m very happy with the way the players faced the game.”

Spurs didn’t hit the front until the 24th minute, though, and we’re eyeing a similar scenario here.

Wycombe’s worst period in Championship fixtures is between 16 minutes and the half-hour mark, during which time they have conceded seven goals and failed to score themselves.

Let’s finish off our Wycombe vs Tottenham betting tips by taking 19/10 for the visitors to outscore their hosts between 15:01 and 30:00 minutes.
