FA Cup Football Betting Tips

12:30pm: Reading v Watford – Watford to Win
3pm: Chesterfield v West Brom – West Brom to Win to Nil
3pm: Millwall v Sheff Utd – Sheffield United to Win & Both Teams to Score
5.30pm: Luton v Wigan – Luton to Win and Over 3.5 Goals

12:30pm: Reading v Watford – Watford to Win

We’ll kick off with one of Saturday’s early games as Watford head to Reading at 12.30pm. The Royals are 13th in the English second tier while Watford have rallied of late and are up to 4th. These two are in fairly similar form with the hosts having won three, drawn one and lost two of their last six.

The Hornets have won two, drawn two and lost two over the same period but beat Reading 2-0 the game before. Reading are good at home but Watford are handy enough on the road. With that Watford Win coming just seven games ago I think it might pay to back recent history repeating itself at a nice price.

3pm: Chesterfield v West Brom – West Brom Win to Nil

It’s a proper FA Cup Third Round clash up next as Chesterfield from the National League welcome The Championship’s West Brom to the Technique Stadium. The Spireites are 3rd in the highest tier of non league while West Brom are flying in the second tier and are up to 9th on the back of eight wins in their last nine.

Chesterfield’s form is very good as well with seven wins in their last eight league games but there is a massive gulf in quality here. While The Baggies are huge favourites to win we can get some value by backing West Brom to Win to Nil. The home side’s recent goal-scoring form is obviously good but The Baggies have conceded just two goals in their last nine league matches.

3pm: Millwall v Sheff Utd – Sheff Utd Win & BTTS

We’ve an all-Championship clash next where 6th-placed Millwall host Sheffield United who are second. The Lions are in decent nick in the league, they’ve won three, drawn two and lost one of their last six but The Blades are nigh-on unstoppable and have won eight of their last 10.

All things being equal they’ll fancy their chances of progressing to the 4th round here and they’ve already beaten their hosts 2-0 this season back in August. The Blades have been shipping a few goals recently with both sides netting in each of their last four. Millwall have scored in three of their last four so we might be able to eke an extra bit of value out with Sheffield United to Win and Both Teams to Score here.

5.30pm: Luton v Wigan – Luton Win & Over 3.5 Goals

Last but not least for our best bets of the FA Cup Third Round weekend it’s Luton hosting the hapless Wigan. The visitors are rock bottom of the Championship while Luton are flirting with the playoffs again in 7th. The wheels have well and truly come off the The Tics of late and they’ve shipped 14 goals in their last four matches.

They have managed to score in each of their last six but they head into this game on the back of three consecutive 4-1 losses. It’s got to be Luton to Win, then, and we can add some value by adding on Over 3.5 Goals.

Luton to Win and Over 2.5 Goals has landed in all three of their most recent games while they’ve seen Overs in the last four so it might be worth pushing the boat out and backing Luton to Win and Over 3.5 Goals given that Wigan have seen Over 4.5 Goals in their last three.
