Man Utd to beat Liverpool – 29/20 (2.45)

Liverpool are suffering a mini-crisis at the moment. They haven’t scored a goal in the Premier League this calendar year and suffered a shock 1-0 defeat to Burnley on Thursday evening at Anfield, their first home defeat in the Premier League for four years. With Jurgen Klopp likely to rest key players, United have a golden chance to pile more misery on their bitter rivals. Our preview of this FA Cup clash is here.

Fulham to beat Burnley – 6/5 (2.20)

Burnley will be on the crest of a wave heading into this one. As mentioned above, they stunned the footballing world by beating Liverpool on their own patch earlier this week. However, that game is sure to have taken its toll on Sean Dyche’s men and expect wholesale changes at Craven Cottage. Fulham’s form has shown a marked improvement and 6/5 is excellent odds considering Fulham are at home and these two sides are evenly matched.

Arsenal to beat Southampton – 5/4 (2.25)

The Gunners are the current FA Cup holders and this is a competition they excel in every season. Southampton have been fantastic in the Premier League this term and hold a realistic chance of winning the FA Cup. However, Arsenal are brimming with confidence and Mikel Arteta is likely to field a strong side when they visit St Mary’s. Considering their reputation in this competition, those odds of 5/4 are very generous.

QPR to beat Derby – 33/20 (2.65)

Both teams have struggled in the Championship this season but both sides have shown glimmers of what they are capable of in recent weeks. Rangers have won their last two on the road without conceding and the return of Charlie Austin has breathed fresh life into their campaign. Derby beat high-flying Bournemouth in midweek but QPR are generally strong at home and look a good bet to make it three wins on the bounce.

Reading to beat Preston – 9/5 (2.80)

Reading are holding on to fifth place in the Championship after winning three of their last four games, beating Coventry 3-1 on Tuesday. Preston have a very shaky record at home and haven’t won against Reading since 2017, plus Reading have the top scorer in the league in Lucas Joao. At odds of nearly 2/1, they look like the bet of the weekend.

Middlesbrough to beat Blackburn – 6/4 (2.50)

Boro are known for being strong at home and are on the fringes of the Championship play-offs, while Blackburn have won only one of their past five games and have a leaky defence. Middlesbrough’s Neil Warnock has won a record eight promotions to the Premier League. Don’t back against him to make it nine.

Oxford to beat Bristol Rovers – 5/7 (1.71)

After a poor start to the season, Oxford have turned things around and have won four games on the spin as they bid to mount a play-offs charge. Meanwhile, Rovers are languishing near the League One relegation zone and have lost three of their last four games. Oxford are the form team in England’s third tier and any result other than a home win would be a shock.

Cambridge to beat Bradford – 13/10 (2.30)

Cambridge are sitting pretty at the top of the table after few pundits tipped them for promotion. They are maintaining their strong start and face a Bradford side who sit in 19th in League Two. However, the Bantams are on a good run and will pose a sturdy threat to the home side. Cambridge aren’t top for nothing though, and odds of 13/10 reflect great value.
