class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The Potters and Spurs have both been strong at the back recently and our tipster is backing a tight Carabao Cup quarter-final on Wednesday evening
Tottenham can book their place in the Carabao Cup semi-finals when they travel to the bet365 Stadium to face Championship side Stoke City on Wednesday evening.
Despite sitting fifth in the Premier League, Jose Mourinho’s men have won just one of their last five domestic games but will no doubt be targeting this fixture as a perfect way to get back on track.
Stoke vs Tottenham Latest Odds
Given the gulf between these two teams, it is not a surprise to see bet365 make Spurs just 4/9 (1.4) favourites to win this tie in 90 minutes.

Stoke are currently seventh in the Championship and beat Blackburn 1-0 in their last outing but are still 6/1 (7.0) outsiders to stun the Premier League side.
A draw would see the match be decided by penalties, which the visitors needed to see off Chelsea in the last round, and that is priced at 18/5 (4.60).
Stoke vs Tottenham Team News
Stoke have a goalkeeper crisis with Joe Bursik cup-tied, Andy Lonergan suffering with flu, and Nathan Broome, Niki Maenpaa, Adam Davies and Angus Gunn all injured – meaning Blondy Nna Noukeu could be set for his Potters debut.
Japhet Tanganga, Giovani Lo Celso and Erik Lamela are all ruled out through injury, whilst Mourinho could opt to rest the likes of Harry Kane and Son Heung-min ahead of a busy festive period.
Stoke vs Tottenham Preview
Spurs were one of the most in-form sides in the Premier League just a couple of weeks ago but after putting together an 11-game unbeaten run in the top-flight, they have now lost their last two fixtures.
Although they should have enough to see off Stoke, it is unlikely to be a particularly thrilling affair given that Mourinho’s men have scored only 10 times in the last nine league matches and kept five clean sheets.
As well, the Potters have managed to score just four times in their last seven Championship fixtures but are incredibly strong at the back themselves, keeping six clean sheets during that time.
Stoke vs Tottenham Tips and Predictions
This Carabao Cup quarter-final looks set to be a low-scoring clash and so opting for under 2.5 goals at a generous 6/5 (2.40) with bet365 looks to be the best value selection.
