Sports Betting: Wimbledon to draw Tottenham's sting

Click to follow
DESPITE THEIR 3-0 FA Cup defeat at White Hart Lane recently, it should be business as usual when Wimbledon entertain Tottenham in the second leg of their Worthington Cup semi-final at Selhurst Park tonight. A 0-0 draw in the first leg means there is everything to play for and, in what promises to be a nail-biter, a draw over 90 minutes has to be the bet.

There are good reasons too for siding with the draw when Leicester host Sunderland in Wednesday's other semi. Leicester are favourites but, 2- 1 up from the first leg, a draw will do them nicely. If the scores are level on the night with 10 minutes to go, anyone who has backed Leicester and expects them to press forward in search of a winner needs help.

Four points clear at the top with 59 goals in 25 games, on paper Manchester United should beat third-placed Arsenal in tomorrow night's big Premiership game at Old Trafford. But Alex Ferguson's men remain flat-track bullies who are vulnerable to a good side at the back. A draw looks the bet.

The bookmakers will take singles on the top Cup games and the Old Trafford showdown, which are all live on TV, but it's a minimum of trebles on the other four Premiership games so how about backing them in four trebles on them all ending in draws? Out-of-sorts Aston Villa and Leeds may draw at Villa Park; Chelsea, depleted by injury, might be held to a draw by resurgent Blackburn at Stamford Bridge; dreary Everton could notch their eighth home draw against Middlesbrough and Coventry might bounce back to hold Newcastle to a draw at St James' Park.
