After thrashing Hull City 4-1 in the last round, Fulham will be hoping to upset more Premier League opposition when they welcome Tottenham to Craven Cottage for Sunday’s FA Cup fifth round clash.
The Cottagers ran out 4-0 winners when the sides last met in this competition six years ago but are 100/30 (4.33) outsiders with Betway to come out on top once again in this one.
Having followed up last weekend’s league defeat at Liverpool by losing to Genk in Thursday’s Europa League game, Mauricio Pochettino’s side are available at 4/5 (1.80) to bounce back by securing their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals here.

None of the last 10 encounters between the teams have resulted in draws, but you can get odds of 11/4 (3.75) on them taking this one to a replay by cancelling each other out in West London.
Since scoring a 97th-minute winner to finally see off Wycombe Wanderers in a 4-3 thriller in the last round, Spurs have failed to find the net from open play in any of their subsequent four matches.
With only a Harry Kane penalty to cheer from encounters with Sunderland, Middlesbrough, Liverpool and Gent, the guests will be desperate to rediscover their touch in front of goal when they take on their London rivals.
Having conceded twice in four of their last six matches on home turf, the Championship outfit may actually represent perfect opposition for a strikeforce lacking in confidence.
However, considering they have found the net 30 times in the last 11 fixtures at Craven Cottage themselves, Slavisa Jokanovic’s team should ensure that any goalmouth action is not restricted to one end of the pitch.
With each of Tottenham’s last nine goals having been scored after the break, odds of 10/11 (1.91) look good on them ensuring more late drama in a game that produces at least two in the second half.
That bet would have paid out in four of Fulham’s last five matches, as well as three of their last four against this opposition.
