<3.35> <3.30> <1.90>

Arca and Riggott are out, Pogatetz is slightly doubtful, meaning Rhys Williams may deputise at right back following the departure of Luke Young. Spurs will feature their new signings Bentley and Modric, and with Darren Bent + Berbatov (who might not start.. hmm) in attack, it promises to be devastating. Bent has been scoring for free and Spurs have been generally great in their pre-season friendlies, so I'll expect them to carry their form into this match and defeat a lacklustre Middlesbrough. King and Woodgate will start in defence, and Heurelho Gomes should prove to be more reliable than Paul Robinson, so go for Spurs.

Roland's prediction: $5 on Spurs @ 1.90 = $9.50

I've gotta agree with roland. i think spurs should be able to win this one, as middlesbrough are trusting their youngsters a touch too much in my opinion. middlesbrough's attack is good though, with players like afonso alves, stewart downing and jeremie aliadiere definitely possessing the quality to tear spurs apart. boro have lost luke young though, which means their defence could be a little creaky, which is bad news when you play a team like spurs.
