Marine v Tottenham Tips: Moura the stand outselection in this David v Goliath clash

Lucas Moura has scored on five of his 12 starts this season for Spurs and features in our tips for the game against Marine
Lucas Moura has scored on five of his 12 starts this season for Spurs and features in our tips for the game against Marine

Marine take on Spurs in the FA Cup third round on Sunday in one of the biggest David v Goliath clashes of recent years. No matter the result of Sunday’s game the hosts will be incredibly proud to have reached the third round for the first time since 1993 in what is their biggest game in their 127 year history. We've got three football tips for the game which can be seen live on BBC1 at 5pm. 

The side from Crosby are priced at a gargantuan 50/1 to win the game in 90 minutes. The draw can be backed 25/1, although it’s been almost 12 months since Marine played out a stalemate, with their last coming in January 2020. Spurs are 1/50 favourites to win the match, given a 98% implied probability from the bookmakers.

Jose Mourinho is expected to rotate his team heavily and give fringe players a chance after the 2-0 win in the Carabao Cup against Brentford on Tuesday. Joe Rodon, Joe Hart and Dele Alli could start the game with first team debut’s set to be handed to left-back Dennis Cirkin and midfielder Harvey White.

Marine’s season has been hindered by Covid-19 and manager Neil Young could well name an unchanged XI to the side that beat Havant & Waterlooville in the second round. 

We’ve picked out three tips for the game, that when combined as a treble pay best with bet365 at 55/1. It’s always hard predicting team news for the FA Cup games so it may be worth waiting until an hour before kick-off before placing your selections.

Lucas Moura to score anytime - 2.5pts @ 10/11 Betfair 

Anthony Miley to be carded - 1pt @ 4/1 William Hill

Harry Winks to be carded - 1pt @ 17/2 Paddy Power

Treble pays 89/1 with Paddy Power


Marine v Spurs
Sun, 17:00
Lucas Moura to score anytime
  • Moura has scored five goals from 12 starts for Spurs this season
  • His pace can cause Marine real problems, with other firms such as Sky bet having this same selection at 2/5
Odds correct as of 2021-01-08 16:20 Odds subject to change.

The first of three selections for the game from the Marine Travel arena is Lucas Moura to score anytime, at the price of 10/11 with the Betfair Sportsbook. The Brazilian has the ability to cause the non-league outfit serious issues with his lightning quick pace, the likes of which these Marine defenders may have never seen before.

This season for Spurs, Lucas Moura has started 12 games in which he has scored on five separate occasions. With that kind of ratio for Mourinho’s side, and with non-league opposition on Sunday, it makes the 10/11 showing from Betfair sound rather appealing. Other firms such as Sky Bet and William Hill have this same selection at just 2/5 so I’d certainly be recommending taking the price from Betfair here. 

Anthony Miley to be carded
  • Marine have had a Covid-19 hindered season but Miley was booked in both games they played in September 
  • Could struggle against the trickery of Dele Alli and pace of Lucas Moura

England’s National Lockdown’s and various Covid-19 restrictions have resulted in games being few and far between for Marine over the last few months. In September the Mariners managed to get in two games in the Northern Premier League. Centre-back Anthony Miley was booked in both of those fixtures and with the trickery of Dele Alli and speed of Lucas Moura in mind he looks primed to pick up a booking. Referee Michael Oliver is historically not one of the greatest officials for bookings but with a yellow card average of 4.4 per game over his last five matches, I’m willing to take a chance on the 4/1 showing from William Hill.

Harry Winks to be carded
  • Winks has been booked in both of his last two starts
  • Four yellow cards in seven Premier League appearances this season
Odds correct as of 2021-01-08 16:35 Odds subject to change.

Rounding off this trio of tips for Sunday is Tottenham’s trip to Crosby on Sunday is midfielder Harry Winks to be carded. This is available at 17/2 as a single with Paddy Power which is a price that heavily factors in the one-way traffic that is expected from Spurs in the game. 

The 24-year-old has been booked on his last two starts for Tottenham and he’s certainly no stranger to a caution. With four yellows in seven league appearances this season, as well as nine in 30 appearances in the 2019/20 season, Winks looks the most likely of the Spurs contingent to find their way into Michael Oliver’s notebook and does make some appeal at 17/2

These three selections can be combined using Paddy Power’s bet builder feature which at the time of writing pays 89/1. The match can be seen live on BBC1 so let’s hope it goes ahead as planned. Please always gamble responsibly

Moura to score, Winks & Miley to be carded

  • Harry Winks has been booked four times in seven league appearances this season
