Andrew Hughes is back with another weekend multiple and he's backing Crystal Palace to take their Fourth Round tie with Tottenham to a replay.
“Although there is a clear class-gap between these two teams, the absence of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Son-Heung-min significantly reduces Tottenham’s attacking threat against a team that will be well-drilled defensively.”
Defeat in the Carabao Cup semi-final on Thursday was a tough result for Tottenham to take, and it is asking a lot for the same group of players to be at their best for another cup tie just three days later, even against lesser opponents.
Although there is a clear class-gap between these two teams, the absence of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Son-Heung-min significantly reduces Tottenham's attacking threat against a team that will be well-drilled defensively.
Roy Hodgson's side have tended to be stronger away from Selhurst Park this season, but they have managed to keep things tight at home. Their last six encounters with these opponents have also yielded a miserly total of six goals, and up against a weakened Spurs side they look a value bet to take this tie to a replay.
South Africa took a 2-1 lead in their five game series against Pakistan with a strong performance in Centurion, but this has been an even contest so far and the home side are surely too short a price to win Game Four.
Pakistan won the first game of the series, and were in with a chance in both of the subsequent games, thanks to some tidy bowling and explosive batting from Imam-ul-Haq, Mohammed Hafeez and Babar Azam.
The home side have struggled to exert dominance with the ball, and the weather could also be in Pakistan's favour as rain-affected games can play to their Twenty-20 strengths, so they look worth a bet at the current odds.
Before the NBA season got underway, this was the match-up that many pundits had pencilled in as the Finals pairing, but things haven't quite worked out that way so far as Boston have struggled to exert themselves in the Eastern Conference.
The process of integrating Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward into the Celtics team has proven harder than expected, and with over half the season gone, Boston are only fifth in the East, and facing a tough route to the Conference Finals.
Over in the West, meanwhile, it has been more or less business as usual for the Golden State Warriors who go into this game with a nine game winning streak, having bounced back from the Draymond Green-Kevin Durant controversy stronger than ever. Back them to extend their run to double figures this weekend.
