Chelsea v Spurs (low odds): Kane to score in 90 minutes

Starting with the low odds on the Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur game where expect Harry Kane to continue his decent form under Antonio Conte as the Italian travels to Stamford Bridge for the first time since leaving his former club back in 2018.

It's been a troubling season for Kane, but in reality, it's been a club issue and their main man has just been a product of the environment around him. Now, with Conte continuing his unbeaten start on the domestic front with a late winner against Watford, it's now nine games unbeaten in England since his return to the Premier League.

Kane has scored three times in this time, and also had a further goal brutally disallowed following a controversial VAR call. Although this is far from what is expected of him, it's a great increase on his record under Nuno Espirito Santo and as long as those around him work to his strengths, the England captain has shown his finishing ability is still there.

Kane also has six goals in 13 appearances against Chelsea, and very few currently in England boast a better ratio. Two of these have also come in three EFL Cup games, and we predict he'll make that record three in four on Wednesday as Conte looks to get one over on his former club.

HARRY KANE TO SCORE IN 90 MINS @ 5/2

Chelsea v Spurs (high odds): Havertz and Son to have 5+ shots on target between them in the first half

For our high odds in this game, we've gone for the massive 500/1 price for Kai Havertz and Heung-min Son to have 5+ shots on target between them. This can come in the form of three from Son and two from Havertz, or one from the Chelsea man and the other four for the Spurs star, and so on.

The odds are high due to the fact Havertz's struggles in front of goal still continue with just the four goals for Chelsea this season, however, he has got one from one game in the League Cup. Furthermore, he is expected to lead the line once more for the Blues with Romelu Lukaku's recent controversy keeping him out and Timo Werner's injury.

As for Son, he continues to be a threat and is Spurs' main man this season with nine goals in all competitions, including eight in the Premier League. He is also having an average of 2.6 shots per game in the league and has two goals in his days at Spurs against Chelsea.

Back Havertz and Son to have 5+ shots on target between them at 500/1 below, in the first half.

Arsenal v Liverpool (low odds): BTTS Score and Under 3.5 Goals in match

Arsenal and Liverpool make up a tighter game than the other semi-final simply due to the fact Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are not available for Liverpool, while the two are in very similar stints of form right now and are all of sudden separated by just seven points in the league table.

At the same time as Mane and Salah's departures, the Reds' team is set to see many changes for this one and it is unlikely it will be as strong as Arsenal's with their current flock of youngsters and names gunning for a starting role like Emile Smith Rowe.

Smith Rowe should start in the forward spots, and Nicolas Pepe too, but as for Liverpool, Diogo Jota remains the only available forward with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also in there too and it all points to a lower scoring tie than what could usually happen in a league tie between these two.

All in all, everything favours Arsenal greatly but at the same time, in a game that shouldn't see more than 3.5 goals.

BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE AND UNDER 3.5 GOALS IN MATCH @ 2/1

Arsenal v Liverpool (high odds):

Although this one sits at 8/1 and not the whopping 500/1 seen in the Chelsea and Spurs clash, Bukayo Saka has still scored seven goals this season with three of them being the first one in that game. Recently, the England international managed to score first in the defeat to Manchester City, while he also managed to do so in the 5-0 win over Norwich City.

Saka is expected to start again here with the club having fewer options in the forward roles right now and how Mikel Arteta looks to salvage a torrid two years in charge of Arsenal with another trophy in the midst of their excellent form.

We also think Liverpool are going to struggle here with the immediate departures of Salah and Mane after the last game, and their attacking options now fall onto the shoulders of only Jota with injuries elsewhere too.

We're backing Saka to score first here at 8/1.
