5 FA Cup 3rd Round Tips

Chorley vs Derby County: Derby to Win and Both Teams to Score

On Saturday Chorley take on Derby County at Victory Park and will be hoping to repeat the cup shock that they caused in round two.

Chorley knocked out Peterborough United in the second round at London Road 2-1 with goals from former Bolton Wanderers youngster Connor Hall and Mike Calveley to earn themselves a place in the third round for the first time in the club’s history.

Meanwhile, Wayne Rooney’s Derby County have shown signs of improvement since he took over as manager, winning two of their last four games against Birmingham City 4-0 and 2-0 against Swansea City at Pride Park.

Derby are obviously the favourites to win the game due to the fact that they are five divisions above the Lancashire side, but Chorley will be looking to try and cause them problems, especially due to the fact that they are the home team in their clash at Victory Park.

The Rams are priced at 7/4 to beat Chorley with both teams scoring - Click on the link to claim this bet in your bet slip!

BLACKPOOL VS WEST BROM: WEST BROM TO WIN AND BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE @ 5/2

Everton vs Rotherham United: Over 4.5 goals

Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton face Championship strugglers Rotherham at Goodison Park on Saturday with the Toffees aiming to end their 26-year spell without a trophy.

Everton come into this game as firm favourites and will most likely make a couple of changes to their starting line-up, with summer signing James Rodriguez coming into their side, as the former Real Madrid man is looking to regain match fitness and return to the scintillating form which he showed early on in the season.

Meanwhile, the Millers currently have the sixth-worst defence in the Championship having leaked 29 goals in just 20 games, only accumulating 16 points in those matches having gone on a run that has seen them win just twice in ten in the league.

The Toffees have only kept four clean sheets in all competitions this season and that even includes winning 5-2 away at Fleetwood Town in the League Cup third round where they fielded a near full-strength line-up. The odds are at 7/2 for there to be over 4.5 goals in the game between Everton and Rotherham on Saturday.

BRENTFORD VS MIDDLESBROUGH: BRENTFORD TO WIN AND BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE @ 7/2

Stoke City vs Leicester City: Leicester City to Win 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2

This weekend sees Stoke City take on Leicester City in an all-midlands clash at the Britannia Stadium.

Michael O’Neill’s side are having a good season in the Championship, as they are currently sat just two points outside the playoff places in eighth place. But the Potters have been on a bit of a slump of late, having only won two of their last 11 matches.

On the other hand, the visitors Leicester are replicating the impressive form which saw them compete for a place in the Champions League last season, as they are third in the Premier League, just two points behind Liverpool at the top of the table.

The Foxes are the fourth top scorers in the division with 31 goals in 17 matches and have scored three or more goals on seven different occasions this season, most recently against Brighton & Hove Albion in early December.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are priced at 11/2 to win 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2 - Click on the link to claim this bet in your bet slip!

OLDHAM ATHLETIC VS BOURNEMOUTH: BOURNEMOUTH TO WIN 3-0, 3-1 OR 3-2 @ 7/2

Blackburn Rovers vs Doncaster Rovers: Over 4.5 goals

Blackburn Rovers take on Doncaster Rovers at Ewood Park in the third round of the FA Cup, which sees the top scorers in the Championship take on League One’s most deadly attack.

Adam Armstrong is without a doubt the standout player in this game, having scored 17 goals in 24 matches for Blackburn this season and is level with Brentford’s Ivan Toney at the top of the goalscorers chart in his division.

Doncaster’s goals tend to be a bit more spread out across their team, with thirteen different goal scorers, of which they have six players with three goals or more this season in their squad. Ben Whiteman leads the way for the Yorkshire side with eight goals and six assists from 20 games which is a very impressive record for a central midfielder.

If you fancy there to be over 4.5 goals in what is expected to be a lively encounter in the FA Cup at Ewood Park this weekend, then the odds are at 4/1 for this to happen.

MANCHESTER UNITED VS WATFORD: MAN UTD TO WIN 3-0, 3-1 OR 3-2 @ 7/2

Arsenal vs Newcastle United: Arsenal to win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1

FA Cup holders Arsenal take on Newcastle United at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, in what is one of three all-Premier League ties this weekend.

Last season Arsenal won the famous old cup against all the odds having beaten Manchester City and Chelsea in the semi-finals and final at Wembley Stadium.

However, this season things haven’t been plain sailing for the Gunners who are in a transitional phase under former club captain Mikel Arteta. Arsenal are currently sat in 11th place but are in good form of late having won their last three matches against Chelsea, Brighton and West Bromwich Albion.

Meanwhile, Steve Bruce’s Newcastle are in poor form of late, having not won a game since they beat West Brom in early December. The Toon are currently in a run of six games without a win at present, including the 5-2 thrashing they received at Elland Road by Leeds United as well as being knocked out of the League Cup at the quarter-finals stage by Championship side Brentford last month.

Newcastle’s last three defeats have all came in the score range of 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1 as they tend to play a very defensive style of football, whilst four of Arsenal’s seven Premier League wins have all been in the same range.

Arsenal to win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1 against Newcastle is priced at 15/8.
