Peterborough United vs Manchester City: Man City -3 Goal Handicap - 7/4

On Tuesday night, reigning Premier League champions Manchester City travels to bottom of the Championship Peterborough United in search of a place in the quarter-finals of this season’s competition.

Grant McCann who has just joined Posh following the resignation of Darren Ferguson oversaw his side be comfortably beaten 3-0 at home by Hull City last weekend, meaning that the London Road club have conceded 66 goals in 33 matches, whilst their opponents have fired in 64 across 27 Premier League fixtures.

In both of City’s FA Cup ties against Swindon Town and Fulham, they have scored four goals and could well do the same again here, especially considering the fact that they recently thumped the likes of Sporting Lisbon 5-0 and Norwich City 4-0.

Middlesbrough vs Tottenham Hotspur: Spurs -1 Goal Handicap - 2/1

Middlesbrough hosts Tottenham Hotspur at the Riverside on Tuesday night in what is set to be an interesting FA Cup tie.

Boro got through to this round after somehow beating Manchester United on penalties at Old Trafford following a 1-1 draw after extra time. The Red Devils managed to create 4.32 XG (Expected Goals) in this match, as well as conceding a highly controversial equaliser in what was a famous victory for Chris Wilder’s men. At the weekend, the Riverside club were defeated 3-2 away at then bottom of the table Barnsley at Oakwell.

On the other hand, Spurs recently managed an impressive 3-2 victory away at Manchester City in the Premier League, on top of an impressive 4-0 hammering of Leeds United at Elland Road, as Matt Doherty, Dejan Kulusevski, Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min all got on the scoresheet.

MIDDLESBROUGH VS TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR: SPURS -1 GOAL HANDICAP @ 2/1

Luton Town vs Chelsea: Chelsea -2 Goal Handicap - 5/2

Luton Town and Chelsea go head to head in a fairly local tie at Kenilworth Road with these two sides being just over 12 miles apart.

The Hatters come into this match in good form of late, winning four of their last five games, following a 1-0 win over Derby County last weekend, on top of 2-1 victories against Stoke City and Barnsley, as well as 2-0 against West Brom, however, they were also defeated 3-0 away at Birmingham City in mid-February, showing that they aren’t susceptible to being beaten heavily.

Chelsea, who are the champions of Europe will expect to go to Luton and win in comfortable style, with Thomas Tuchel’s men looking to bounce back following a penalty shootout loss to Liverpool having gone toe to toe with Jurgen Klopp’s side, with the likes of Mason Mount spurning two golden chances to gives his side the lead in the match.

The last time these two sides met was back in January 2021 when the Blues ran out as 3-1 winners in what was Frank Lampard’s last game as manager. This match saw Tammy Abraham score a hat-trick for the club and having significantly improved since then, it isn’t unforeseeable that the Blues could better this scoreline on Wednesday night.

LUTON TOWN VS CHELSEA: CHELSEA -2 GOAL HANDICAP @ 5/2

Liverpool vs Norwich City: Liverpool -2 Goal Handicap - 5/4

Liverpool and Norwich face off once again for the first time in a matter of weeks on Wednesday night in the FA Cup.

This will be the fourth time that these two clubs will have played each other this campaign, as the Reds knocked the Canaries out of the Carabao Cup on their path to the final by a 3-0 scoreline at Carrow Road, on top of defeating then Daniel Farke’s side by the same score on the opening weekend and Dean Smith’s men 3-1 as recently as 19th February.

Klopp’s side have fired in 70 goals across 26 Premier League matches, whilst Norwich have leaked 55 in 26, with the away side coming into this fixture having lost all of their last three matches 2-0, 3-1 and 4-0 against Southampton, Liverpool and Manchester City. Prior to the Anfield club’s Carabao Cup win against Chelsea, they thumped Leeds 6-0 in the Premier League.

LIVERPOOL VS NORWICH CITY: LIVERPOOL -2 GOAL HANDICAP @ 5/4

Everton vs Boreham Wood: Everton -2 Goal Handicap - 6/5

The final tip on this list sees Everton take on National League outfit Boreham Wood at Goodison Park with Lampard’s men coming in as firm favourites.

So far under the ex-Chelsea manager, Everton have won two games from their last five, hammering Brentford 4-1 in their last FA Cup match, as well as defeating Leeds United 3-0 at Goodison Park in the Premier League in early February as Seamus Coleman, Michael Keane and Anthony Gordon all got on the scoresheet.

Their recent 1-0 loss to Manchester City will give the Toffees a lot of encouragement, as they matched the champions for much of the match on Saturday night.

The Wood stunned AFC Bournemouth last time out in this competition, as they beat the Cherries 1-0 at the Vitality Stadium, but, since then, Luke Garrard’s side have won just two of their last five matches, following a 2-0 win over Altrincham, before a 2-0 defeat to Maidenhead United, as well as a 0-0 draw against Torquay United. In their last outing, Boreham Wood beat Eastleigh 1-0.
