Midweek betting guide – 5 February 2018

The midweek focus this week is on the FA Cup, with several intriguing fourth round replays offering plenty of potential value to punters. On Wednesday evening at Wembley, Tottenham Hotspur welcome Welsh League Two outfit Newport County to the capital.

Harry Kane
Can Harry Kane help Spurs beat Newport?

The first game between these two, at Rodney Parade, ended in a 1-1 draw, after Harry Kane saved Spurs’ blushes with a late equaliser. The home team are the big favourites for this game, with Betway having them at 1/8 to win the tie. The draw is at 9/1, and Newport at 25/1 on the 1X2 markets. Spurs will be in positive mood, having come away from Anfield with a thrilling 2-2 draw at the weekend. They will also want to expunge the embarrassment of the first game against Newport, when they were far from being at their fluent best.

If you think the Welsh club can score a goal, then having Spurs to win and County to score is at 9/5, which looks tempting. Tottenham to win 3-0 also looks good on the correct score markets, with Betway pricing that outcome at 11/2. You can also get Spurs to win 3-1 at 10/1. Newport are currently 11th in League Two, and lost 2-0 away at Colchester at the weekend. If you think they are can nick a goal and hold onto the lead, then you can get Newport to win 1-0 at 40/1 at Betway, which is probably worth a pound or two, if you are feeling optimistic.

Huddersfield Town
Can Huddersfield Town beat Birmingham City?

Ahead of that clash at the Wembley, though, there are three other replays set for Tuesday evening, two of which have Premier League involvement. Huddersfield Town travel to face Birmingham City, after the first game between the two in Yorkshire ended in a 1-1 draw.
Birmingham beat Sheffield Wednesday 3-1 away at the weekend, and have now only lost once in their last eight games in all competitions.

The Championship outfit will undoubtedly fancy their chances of an upset, given that Huddersfield have been in terrible form in recent times. Town were beaten 2-0 at Old Trafford by Manchester United at the weekend, and have now lost their last five Premier League games. Their only recent victory was a 2-1 win at Bolton Wanderers in the third round of the FA Cup. They have scored only once in their last five Premier League games. All of this means that the Blues might well fancy their chances of winning in Yorkshire, and facing Manchester United in the fifth round.

Coral are offering 17/10 on a Blues win, with the draw at 2/1 and the away team at 9/5 on the 1X2 market. You can also get Birmingham to win and under 2.5 goals to be scored in the game at 19/5, which, given Town’s inability to score in recent times, is probably a good bet.

Elsewhere, Swansea City welcome Notts County to the Liberty Stadium in good form, having beaten Liverpool and Arsenal in their last two home games. Rochdale also play Millwall at home in the other replay on Tuesday night. Coral have Swansea at 1/2 on the 1X2, while Millwall are at 23/20 to beat Rochdale.
