FA Cup: Tottenham strong favorite against Reading on Tuesday

The betting odds and preview of the FA Cup match Reading v Tottenham on Tuesday.

FA Cup: Tottenham strong favorite against Reading on Tuesday The Tuesday FA Cup line-up will feature only one all-Premier League match-up, the one between Reading and Tottenham at the Madejski Stadium. And it will likely be the most bet on game from the FA Cup matches on Tuesday, considering the history the two squads have had and the big betting numbers on the game. Still, at the British online bookie Bet 365 Tottenham are 2.00 favorite to win the match, draw will pay times 3.25 and Reading are underdog with 3.50 odds to win the FA Cup game.

 The recent games between Reading and Tottenham include the memorable 6-4 win by the Spurs in the Premier League fixture on 29 December at White Hart Lane and and their 2-2 Cup draw there the following week. On Tuesday Reading will be without defender Michael Duberry (knee), while new signing Marek Matejovsky and defender Alan Bennett are not eligible to play. Wingers John Oster and Glen Little are still sidelined and Ibrahima Sonko, Emerse Fae and Andre Bikey are absent on international duty. Meanwhile the Spurs have not reported any injuries entering the FA Cup.

 When betting on this FA Cup game, one should consider the volume of goals netted - total of 14 goals in their last two meetings alone, six of them by the Spurs' Berbatov, who will play again on Tuesday - at Bet365 the bet on OVER 2.5 goals will pay 1.66 times your wager. Also, Tottenham have not won in their last four games - drawn two and lost two since the Premier League 6-4 win over Reading a month ago. With 2.00 odds on the Spurs, this game is the perfect compliment to a tight parlay.
