Spurs Hot Favourites For Win
The glitterati of Spurs may not have been used to the cramp surroundings of Rodney Parade, and the pitch was far from what they were used to in the heights of the Premier League and Champions League, but Pochettino's men were poor throughout the 90 minutes, as Michael Flynn's men produced a phenomenal display having knocked out Leeds United in round three.
However, the south Wales club will now travel to Wembley, and it's set to be a whole different scenario at the home of English football, and Spurs are expected to cruise to victory, and are a best-priced 1/9 with Ladbrokes to win in 90 minutes, and Pochettino setting his sights on silverware this season, then you have to feel a fairly strong team will be sent out.
Newport suffered defeat to Colchester at the weekend, and their push for a play-off place took a significant hit, and while the players will relish the chance the play at Wembley, it's hard to see them running Spurs close, and the 33/1 with Coral for a Newport win is more than fair, while an unlikely draw is available at 11/1 with Betfair Sportsbook.

Newport In For A Long Night
Padraig Amond's goal in the first half of the first tie saw Newport take a shock lead, and they defended heroically for most of the game, but it could be a different story on Wednesday night, and with Spurs facing Arsenal in a crunch north London derby at the weekend in the Premier League, then Pochettino will want his men to put the game to bed early on.
So, with the likelihood of trying to rest the likes of Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen once the tie is won, Spurs could fly out of the traps, and with that in mind, the 10/11 with Ladbrokes for Spurs to be leading after 30 minutes is a great bet in a match this is devoid of significant value in most markets.

Spurs To Cruise Into Fifth Round
Having picked up a late point in Sunday's 2-2 draw with Liverpool, Spurs will be hoping to kick on from that, and will see Newport as a potentially easy target to head into their Arsenal clash full of confidence, and if they can grab an early lead then it could see County chase the game, and Spurs could rack up a few goals, and the 15/2 with Betfair Sportsbook for a 4-0 Spurs win is the standout selection.
