Well, Woodgate and King are rested, while Corluka is cup-tied and Hutton is out. Spells trouble for the Spurs back 4. For their attack, Luka Modric and Giovani dos Santos are injured, while Pavlyuchenko is cup-tied. Spells trouble for their attack too, as Luka Modric has been a key player for them with his creativity. The heavy boat will be in NEC grabbing at least a point at home, so I'm backing Spurs as they do have decent strength in depth. Zokora will be an able deputy at the back and Huddlestone + Jenas are capable of running the midfield with Bentley delivering good crosses for Campbell and Bent. Well, that's the ideal situation as I'm backing Spurs to get a crucial win here to keep their UEFA Cup hopes alive.
Roland's prediction: $5 on Spurs -0.5 @ 2.050 = $10.25
