Cardiff City v Tottenham Tips: Can Poch’s men earn their Spurs?

| 31.12.2018

It may be a new year but three points is still as valuable as ever as Cardiff City host Tottenham Hotspur this evening.

The Bluebirds come into the game off the back of a hard-fought victory over Leicester City.

Now they face a wounded Spurs side who will be desperate to bounce back from their loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The result will be vital to both ends of the table and we’ve got all the odds ahead of the tasty top-flight clash…

Match Odds

Cardiff got their first away win at the King Power Stadium last Saturday, but they are 11/2 underdogs to grab their fifth home victory of the season.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men are 1/2 to pick up the win and close the gap on their title rivals.

Our traders have a third straight 1-0 win in this fixture for Spurs at 7/1.

A first draw in four games dating back to 2007 is 10/3.

Talking Tactics

Harry Kane might have scored a wonder goal in the loss to Wolves, but he failed to have any shots inside the opposition box in the 90 minutes.

His link up with Christian Eriksen will be vital to Tottenham’s fate tonight.

Their back four could feature Davinson Sanchez and Toby Alderweireld at centre-back with Jan Vertonghen and Eric Dier injured.

The versatile Callum Paterson could lead the line again for Cardiff with Kenneth Zohore sidelined.

Neil Warnock’s other option in attack is to bring back Bobby Reid into the starting line-up.

Victor Camarasa should retain his place after his last-minute wonder strike against Leicester.

Goalscorer Odds

Kane is 7/10 to notch anytime. The England striker is 21/10 to score two goals or more.

Son Heung-Min is not travelling to the Asian Cup until later in the month.

The South Korea forward is 8/5 to bag anytime.

Camarasa to score last for the second successive match is 18/1.

Paterson to grab his fifth goal of the season is 11/4.

But Cardiff haven’t beaten Spurs in the Premier League era. Eriksen to score and the Lilywhites to win comes in at 16/5.
