Tottenham vs. AC Milan Betting Tips: Cash Cow Kane still very backable in the fouls market

Tottenham vs AC Milan Odds
It was a solitary Brahim Diaz goal that gave AC Milan the 1-0 in the first leg against Spurs three weeks ago. It’s been a disappointing week for Conte’s men who were dumped out of the FA Cup by Championship side Sheffield United before a second consecutive 1-0 defeat, which came at the hands of Wolves in the Premier League.
AC Milan also tasted domestic defeat last weekend as they went down 2-1 to Fiorentina in Serie A. It has been over a decade since the Rossoneri reached the last eight of the Champions League, however Setfano Pioli’s side have been disappointing on the road of late, just winning one of their last five which came at Monza.
Taking a look at the odds to advance to the quarter-finals and the visitors are the favorites at 8/15 with bet365, while Spurs can be sided with at 11/8.
Tottenham vs AC Milan Tips
I am beginning to sound like a broken record here at BettingOdds.com due to banging on about value in the player fouls market. However, while this gravy train continues to storm down the tracks I’ll continue to recommend selections that I believe are profitable and hold value.
Harry Kane has become somewhat of a Cash Cow in this market in recent weeks with the Tottenham talisman giving away 1+ fouls in nine of his last ten starts for Spurs. Kane may be a little bit of a shorter price than he was at the weekend (even money), but with a place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League on the line, we believe the 10/13 is still a price that holds plenty of juice.
I’ve also picked out a little double with Paddy Power consisting of two players to commit 2+ fouls in the match. The first of those is Dejan Kulusevski who has given away 2+ fouls in his last seven starts for Spurs. Those totals read 2,2,4,3,2,2,3, which includes three against Milan in the first leg, and with 11/8 on show he looks a reasonable price to do so again here in a huge game.
Paired with Kulusevski will be Pierre Hojbjerg, who there has been extra impetus on in recent weeks due to the injuries to Yves Bissouma and Rodrigo Bentancur. The midfielder has committed 2+ fouls in four of his last eight appearances and including him in this Bet Builder takes us up to just under the 5/1 mark.
