Our official betting partner Sportingbet take a look at the odds on offer for tonight’s Carling Cup third round tie against Arsenal at the Lane…
One of English football’s great rivalries is renewed on Tuesday night after the Carling Cup hat saw fit to draw Spurs v Arsenal at the first attempt this season, and the home side are 65 favourites to repeat their 200708 success.
That 5-1 drubbing at the Lane lives on fondly in Spurs fans’ memories and with Arsene Wenger surely set to stick with the kids in this competition, who’s to say there can’t be a repeat showing of that 1001 shot?
Much will depend on what kind of side Harry Redknapp selects now that Tottenham share their rival’s Champions League consideration, situs judi online but the inevitable Gunners’ youngsters are 1910 with Sportingbet.
The draw at 90 minutes could be a worthy punt if you think we’re in for a tight encounter on Tuesday night, with 2310 on offer for the prospect of extra time. And if you consider it a close enough contest, perhaps the To Qualify market is for you, where Spurs are 1320 and Arsenal 1110 to reach the Fourth Round.
If on the other hand it’s another Gunner-thumping you fancy, you can take your pick from 3-0 201, 3-1 161 or even 4-1 401 for some tastier prices.
Expect some squad players to do the business for Spurs? Tip Giovani to be First Goalscorer at 71 or else back the likes of Sandro 251 and Niko Kranjcar 81 in the same market.

Blandford, who founded online bookmakers Sportingbet, also thinks that Tom Scudamore has a good chance on The Giant Bolster.
“I think Bobs Worth will win it,” said Blandford, this morning.
“It does look quite an open race but I think he’s the class horse.”
Herefordshire trainer Venetia Williams has 66-1 shots Katenko and Houblon Des Obeaux in the big race, which starts at 3.20pm on Friday.
Blandford added: “The other Herefordshire connection for the Gold Cup is Tom Scudamore riding The Giant Bolster and he’s a good horse. It’s quite telling that he’s 16-1 in the pricing.”
Eight-time champion jockey Peter Scudamore revealed his favourite for the Gold Cup at last week’s ‘From the horse’s mouth’ pre-Cheltenham Festival evening at the Castle House in Hereford.
There was disappointment at the festival yesterday Tuesday for Checkley owner Stewart Williams when King Massini was unseated his rider in the Baylis and Harding Handicap Chase.
