VBET’s red-hot football expert considers the chances of three upsets as the FA Cup returns to our screens this weekend:
With Cardiff bang out of form, many might be expecting a home win. We don’t see that being the case, though, and odds of 2/1 about an away victory look most tempting.
Cardiff boss Neil Harris is desperate for a win – any win – after a string of rotten results, whereas a much-improved Forest will not be too interested about a Cup run as they look to pull clear of the Championship relegation zone.
Cardiff also have a fine recent record at the City Ground, further adding to the theory that City might just nick this one.
Plymouth have impressed League One observers with their attractive brand of football this season under the guidance of Ryan Lowe. Seemingly in a position of relative comfort in the table, they could feasibly strike gold in West Yorkshire.
Huddersfield are also doing pretty well of late, but we expect the hosts to play a much-changed starting XI for this one, while Plymouth will not have such a luxury.
To that end, VBET’s odds of 3/1 about a Plymouth victory could prove bang on the money.
This is precisely the fixture Sam Allardyce could do without. Blackpool are a pretty useful side on their day at home, and yet a beleaguered West Brom side must try and get a result to quell the dissenting voices about their new manager.
Allardyce will be aware of this, and is likely to name a strong team. But whether or not his players will be up for it – knowing too well of the big games that are upon the horizon – is contentious.
VBET traders have not been surprised, then, to see lots of nice bets at odds of 5/2 about the game ending a draw after 90 minutes.
