Tip #1: Back Tottenham -1.5 @ 1.70 with William Hill.
Tip #2: Back Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.50 with William Hill
Tottenham is having a great season, although out of the battle for the title in Premier League, the team is on the third place. Tottenham got to the quarter final stage of the FA Cup rather easily, conceding only 1 goal along the way, and scoring 7 in those 3 games. The victories were as follow: 3:0 against Cheltenham, 1:0 against Watford , 3:1 against Stevenage. The victory for Tottenham is priced as low as @ 1.28 so the odds are not worth it. You might pick something better from the Asian Handicap market like -1.5 @ 1.70 or even -2.5 @ 2.68. Most likely players to score according to the books are Adebayor & Defoe, each priced to score at anytime @ 1.61.

Bolton is only a point away from the relegation zone, and dropping out of this tournament and concentrating on their survival in Premier League will be perhaps the best idea. The team has had 4 victories, no draws and 10 losses away from home this season and has already lost the match to Tottenham in December with 0:3. Bolton started the FA Cup a bit clumsy, drawing the first match against Macclesfield 2:2 but winning the replay with 2:0, eliminated then Swansea with 2:1 and Millwall with 2:0 to reach the quarter finals. The away victory holds a value @ 11.00 but seems rather impossible.

Five consecutive victories for Tottenham in the past 4 years, where Bolton managed to score just a goal, and conceded 12. Three of the five matches finished with at least 2 goal margin, therefore will be safe enough to back Tottenham -1.5 on the Asian handicap market @ 1.70 with William Hill.
Four of the last five games on White Hart Lane ended Over 2.5 goals, and I expect nothing different especially in a FA cup game. Back this match to end Over 2.5 goals @ 1.50 with William Hill.
