Middlesbrough vs Tottenham: Check out our betting tips

There has been a lot made of Antonio Conte and Tottenham but if the Italian could lead them to FA Cup glory it would be a historic day for the club. Can Spurs move a step closer to writing that said history here? Find out with our Middlesbrough vs Tottenham match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Tottenham to edge it

You can't completely write Middlesbrough out of this tie after the way they saw off Man United in the last round but, at the same time, it feels like they've probably had their moment in the sun – for this year at least. Sure, Tottenham haven't been amazing of late but they showed their class to take apart Leeds at the weekend and given Conte's winning instinct, he'll likely go with a strong XI. If they turn up, there is little chance a Boro side that's just lost to Championship strugglers Barnsley will be able to cope. For us, the odds represent value for a Spurs win too.

Both sides to score

We might have it predicted that Middlesbrough will be exiting the FA Cup in this match but we do fancy them to grab a goal in the process meaning both teams will score. Middlesbrough have seen both teams score in each of their last six – including that Manchester United match. Tottenham meanwhile have only recorded one clean sheet in their last 10 games and even that came against Leeds at the weekend where Spurs gave up 19 shots. Boro won't have that many openings but Tottenham haven't kept back to back clean sheets since December and, the way this game is likely to unfold, will leave gaps in their backline.

Middlesbrough vs Tottenham: It's predicted lineup time

For so many years Middlesbrough vs Tottenham was every bit a Premier League fixture. Now, one side come into the match as significant favourites with their ‘problems' being can they make the Champions League. Boro's issues meanwhile are around trying to make the top six in the second tier.

Middlesbrough Predicted Lineup

Middlesbrough had a moment to savour in the last round as they knocked Manchester United out of the FA Cup on penalties but things haven't exactly gone to plan for them since with just seven points from the 15 that have been on offer in the Championship; it means they're currently outside of the top six. Will they prioritise promotion over a cup dream?

Predicted lineup – Lumley, McNair, Fry, Dijksteel, Taylor, Tavernier, Howson, Lea, Jones, Watmore, Connolly

Tottenham Predicted Lineup

All the noise around Tottenham right now is about Antonio Conte and the fact that his team are not ‘winners'. That's hard to deny based on past events but what a story it would be if Conte can take them all the way to glory in the FA Cup. You'd fancy them to go full strength here but they do still have a chance at making the top four in the Premier League. As such, they too might have to choose how to prioritise.

Predicted lineup – Lloris, Romero, Dier, Davies, Sessengnon, Winks, Hojbjerg, Emerson, Son, Moura, Kane
