Swansea v Tottenham FA Cup, 17th March 12.15pm
With Spurs having to cope without Harry Kane now, this FA Cup tie gets a little bit more interesting. The Swans have produced some fine home form recently and will be up for this challenge at the Liberty Stadium. After losing out in the Champions League round of sixteen, this is the last shot at silverware for the Lilywhites this term.

Tottenham 9/20, Draw 16/5, Swansea 13/2* (betting odds taken on March 14th, 2018 at 3:32 p.m.)
Swansea v Tottenham FA Cup Betting Tips
Swansea will look to make the most of home advantage as they face up to Spurs in the quarter finals. They are certainly carrying the home form to do just that. Remarkably the Welsh club are on a seven-match winning streak at home which includes wins over Liverpool and Arsenal in that sequence. In the FA Cup they have taken out Championship high-fliers Wolves, put eight goals past Notts County and saw off current boss Carlos Carvalhal’s former club Sheffield Wednesday. So they have certainly taken their chances at home and should be really competitive in this one and it’s worth backing both teams to score at even money odds at bet365* (betting odds taken on March 14th, 2018 at 3:32 p.m.). That has happened in three of the last four between these two at the Liberty Stadium.
Swansea’s last home win over Spurs was back in the 1991 League Cup and are D2 L5 since then against the Lilywhites in South Wales. This season they did pick up a creditable draw at Wembley in the league before falling 2-0 at home against Spurs in early January. This will be the first ever FA Cup game between Swansea and Tottenham.
Spurs have scored at least two goals in seven of their last eight games against Swansea but they are missing Harry Kane now for a lengthy time through injury. How will they cope? In the bet365 First Goalscorer market is Fernando Llorente who is now the 3/1 outright favourite* (betting odds taken on March 14th, 2018 at 3:32 p.m.). Can he step up to the plate as he goes against his former club? Spurs are not actually in that great of winning form away from home. They are W2 D5 in their last seven on the road and they have just the one clean sheet in that sequence but have scored in each of their last thirteen away games in all competitions. Over 2.5 goals at bet365 is a decent option to consider for this one. Tottenham have made hard work of things in the FA Cup itself having needed replays against Rochdale and Newport at home to get through earlier rounds.
Who will win – Swansea v Tottenham FA Cup Predictions
The Swans are in home form at the moment and they may be strong enough and positive enough to get a draw out of this one at 90 minutes. There will be no replay, just extra time and penalties if needed. Tottenham’s loss of Harry Kane could well galvanise the home side even more. So back the draw at the end of regulation.
