With our big accumulator posted for this weekend, this is just a value section where I feel there are odds against games out there worth backing – just the FA Cup for today.
Just three games selected – but they all look very good bets:
Chelsea vs Brentford: Chelsea -2 Goal Handicap @ 5/4 (FA Cup, 1500 KO)
Chelsea have a very strong squad – and you will definitely see some first team names. Begovic, Willian and Batshuayi are likely to feature – while you will probably see the likes of Hazard and several of the back four that have made them so impregnable this season. Brentford are struggling in the league, so one more distraction is less than welcomed. Scott Hogan is off soon, Florian Jozefoon has come in which is a good signing – but all in all today I think Chelsea will rack the goals up against them.
Middlesbrough vs Accrington: Boro Win to Nil @ 21/20 (FA Cup, 1500 KO)
Boro are very sturdy at the back – don’t concede many despite being a lower PL club. Karanka is a top manager, and although we may see some rotation, I don’t think it will be too many. Accrington so nearly got promoted over the last few seasons, but have lost a couple of starlets to higher clubs in England and Scotland, are are struggling this term. Scoring has been an issue – a 3-0 loss last week to a very poor Cheltenham side showing this. Boro to win, and not concede – terrific value @ 21/20!
Palace vs Man City: Man City -1 Goal Handicap @ 5/4 (Fa Cup, 1500 KO)
Palace are in trouble, and are trying to buy themselves out of it. Another classic Alan Pardew mess that he has left someone else in! Big Sam is trying his best, but to no avail as of yet. City on the other hand are also struggling, but I expect them to come out today with a near-full strength side (with the addition of Iheanacho) and allow Palace to focus on the league…
The treble pays around the 10/1 mark, while my best double is the top duo @ 4/1.
Best of luck
