HARRY REDKNAPP would probably advise bunging a wad on Spurs tonight even if he says he's not great with figures.

The White Hart Lane boss has spent the week on trial over tax avoidance charges but will still pick the side for tonight's FA Cup clash at Watford.

Redknapp, as he did in the previous round and for the Europa League, will play a weakened but not second-string side.

Spurs' priority is winning a place in the Champions League for the second season running but Redknapp would still love a decent run.

I think while the likes of Rafael van der Vaart, Gareth Bale and Scott Parker will be rested, Redknapp will put out an 11 he feels will be capable of winning the tie as he did in the previous round against Cheltenham.

The likes of Luka Modric, Aaron Lennon and Jermain Defoe should be too strong for the Championship outfit who have lost three of their last four and conceded nine goals in their last four.

With a defence that leaky you've got to fear the worst for the Vicarage Road men. Spurs are no bigger than 1-2 with the likes of bet365 and BetVictor while Watford are 13-2 at Ladbrokes.

Defoe is Spurs' top scorer alongside Gareth Bale and is 9-2 at bet365 and Ladbrokes to hit the opener. Likely strike partner Manny Adebayor is 4-1 with Coral and Ladbrokes.

For better value look at Aaron lennon who is 12-1 with the likes of Ladbrokes and Coral.

If Watford are going to score it's likely to come from 10-goal Marvin Sordell who is 10-1 with William Hill and others to break the deadlock.

The other tie sees Everton meet Fulham and it could go either way. Both sides are evenly matched and have taken 26 points from their 22 league games.

Home advantage may swing it Everton's way with Fulham winning just one on the road in the top flight but it's too close to call.

In fact, best bet could be take both teams to score at 1-1 with Ladbrokes. This has happened in the last four meetings including a 3-1 win for Fulham at Craven Cottage earlier in the season.

Everton are a best 21-20 at William Hill while Fulham are 3-1 with Betfred and BetVictor. But I'll be on the draw at 12-5 at BetVictor.

There is one game in League One with Chesterfield entertaining Bournemouth. Both sides have won their last two 2-1 which makes me again look at both teams to score. This pays a best 4-6 at Ladbrokes.

Chesterfield have only lost one in six but are facing visitors who are unbeaten in 11 away from home and targeting a club record 13.

I'm on Bournemouth, a biggest 13-10 at Coral, to edge this one.
