Ipswich v Maidstone

FA Cup match at Portman Road, Ipswich
TV: BBC One, 12:30pm

Ipswich are red-hot favourites here while Maidstone are the lowest ranked team still left in the tournament. They play their trade all the way down in the National League South. There’s a massive gulf in quality between the sides here, so much so that the hosts,they might even rest a few players. I think they’ll win 3-0 so we’re backing Ipswich to Win and Both Teams to Score, No.

The hosts are riding high in the Championship but they’re having a rocky time of it lately. They’ve only won one of their last seven but have won 12 of 17 at home, scoring 35 goals. This should be a comfortable home victory.

I like the odds on Kaydon Jackson to Score and Conor Chaplain to Score as well and I’m taking Wes Burns to have 1 or more Shots On Target.

Fulham v Newcastle

FA Cup match at Craven Cottage, London
TV: ITV 4, 7pm

I was a bit disappointed in how Fulham fared against Liverpool midweek. Liverpool really controlled the first twenty minutes. I’d expected Fulham would’ve come out all guns blazing but it was only late on when they threw caution to the wind and went for it. 

They’ve lost four of their last five Premier League games, they do fluctuate Fulham, they’ve won nine of the last 30 at Craven Cottage. Newcastle are in a bit of a wobble at the moment, there’s all this talk of Kieran Trippier joining Bayern Munich, he’s obviously wanted to stalwart of this Newcastle side

Toon have lost each of the last 7 FA Cup games against Premier League opposition and have lost 8 of the last 10 games. Eddie Howe’s side are not having a good time of it of late, I have Fulham to win this by 2-1 so we’re backing Fulham to Win, Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 Goals.

For player bets, I fancy Raul Jimenez to Score for the hosts and Alexander Isak to have 1 or more Shots On Target for Newcastle.
