FA Cup – Betting Previews (09 Jan)

ARSENAL vs NEWCASTLE UNITED = 19.30

Arsenal are 11th and have won 3, drawn 1 and lost 1 of their last 5 League Matches but at Home, they have strangely won 1, drawn 1 and lost 4 of their last 6.

Newcastle are 15th and have drawn 2 and lost 3 of their last 5 League Outings and Away from Home, they have won 1 and lost 3 of their last 4.

Newcastle play Sheffield United Away in a crucial League Clash on Tuesday and may rest several key players here.

Arsenal are the FA Cup Holders and while 0.40 is short, they should win, while -1 Handicap around 1.1 is a Decent Price.   

Arsenal to Win and Both Teams to Score (NO) at 1.80 is the Value Play.

BRENTFORD vs MIDDLESBROUGH = 20.00

Brentford are 4th in the Championship and have won 8 and drawn 7 of their last 15 League Appearances, while at Home, they have won 4 and drawn 5 of their last 9.

Middesbrough are 7th in the Championship and have won 4 and lost 1 of their last 5 League Games and Away from Home, they have won 2 and lost 1 of their last 3. 

Brentford were beaten 2-0 by Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday in the League Cup Semi-Final and are expected to rest several key players.

Middlesbrough have several players with Covid and are expected to play a youthful side.

Brentford should win and 0.60 is a fair price, while the -1 Handicap at 1.90, is worth looking at.
Brentford to Score Over 1.5 Goals at 0.80 looks a Gift, while Over 2.5 Goals at 2.55, is my Value Play.

MAN UNITED vs WATFORD = 22.00

Man United are 2nd in the Premiership and have won 5, drawn 1 and lost 1 of their last 7 League Fixtures, while at Home, they have won 3 and lost 1 of their last 4.

Watford are 6th in the Championship and have won 2, drawn 2 and lost 2 of their last 6 League Encounters but Away from Home, they have won 1, drawn 4 and lost 3 of their last 8.

Man United were beaten in the League Cup Semi-Final by Man City on Wednesday and are expected to rotate their side.

United are 0.30 to Win, which is short, so I would rather suggest the -1 Handicap at 0.90.

Man United to Win and Both Teams to Score (YES) at 1.80 is the Value Call. 

BRISTOL ROVERS vs SHEFFIELD UNITED = 17.00

Bristol Rovers are 18th in League One and have won 3, drawn 1 and lost 2 of their last 6 League Fixtures, while at Home, they have won their last 2.
Sheffield United are 20th (Bottom) of the Premiership and have drawn 2 and lost 15 of their 17 League Encounters, while Away from Home, they have drawn 1 and lost 8 of their last 9.

Sheffield play Newcastle United at Home in the League on Tuesday but while there are rumuors they will rest their Main Players, I don’t see it, as their confidence needs Rebuilding.

Sheffield are 0.70 to Win, which I strongly Fancy, while Sheffield to Win on the -1 Handicap at 2.10, will have my money.
Sheffield To Win and Both Teams to Score (NO) at 2.40, is My Value Call.
Sheffield to Score Over 1.5 Goals at 0.80, looks a Gift.

BURNLEY vs MK DONS  =  17.00

Burnley are 16th in the Premiership and have won 3, drawn 2 and lost 1 of their last 6 League Matches, while at Home, they have won 3 and drawn 1 of their last 4.

MK Dons are 16th in League One and have won 2, drawn 2 and lost 2 of their last 6 League Outings, while Away from Home, they have won 2 and lost 2 of their last 4.

Burnley play Man United at Home on Tuesday and will no doubt, play their Squad Players.

Burnley are 0.50 to Win, which offers no value but I fancy the MK Dons to score, so Both Teams to Score at 0.85 is my Call.
Over 2.5 Goals at 0.80 is a Fair Price as well.

QPR vs FULHAM = 17.00

QPR are 20th in the Championship and have drawn 4 and lost 5 of their last 9 League Appearances, while at Home, they have drawn 1 and lost 3 of their last 4.
Fulham are 18th in the Premiership and have won 1, drawn 4 and lost 1 of their last 6 League Games, while Away from Home, they have won 1, drawn 2 and lost 2 of their last 5.

Fulham have suffered from Covid and their last 2 League Fixtures, have been Postponed and they are expected to play a youthful and weakened team here.
I am leaving the Outright Market alone, so Both Teams to Score at 0.80 and Over 2.5 Goals at 1.10, are my Suggestions.

QPR to Score at 0.42 looks a Gift, while I will Chance QPR to Score Over 1.5 Goals, at 1.95.

STOKE CITY vs LEICESTER CITY = 17.00

Stoke are 8th in the Championship and have won 1, drawn 4 and lost 2 of their last 7 League Fixtures, while at Home, they have won 1, drawn 1 and lost 2 of their last 4.

Leicester are 3rd in the Premiership and have won 4, drawn 2 and lost 1 of their last 7 League Encounters, while Away from Home, they have won 7, drawn 1 and lost 1 of their last 9.

Leicester are expected to make several changes but their Key Players, will more than likely, be on the Bench.

Leicester should Win and while 0.70 is a Good Price, I also fancy them to Win on the -1 Handicap at 2.30.

Leicester to Score Over 1.5 Goals at 1.0 looks a Gift, while Leicester to Win the 2nd Half at 1.20, looks worth an Interest.

The Draw/Leicester City in the HT/Ft Market at 3.50, is My value Play.
