Fancy a bet? Sky Bet's Steve says: 'Tottenham are 8/13 favourites to record their first win in Group J at Maribor, who are 9/2. After successive draws Spurs need a win to bolster their chances of progressing and punters are getting behind them. Jermain Defoe is 9/2 to net the opening goal and 25/1 to score first and Spurs win 2-0.' Cheers for the info Steve, for a full market, click here.
