FA Cup 3rd Round Special
The FA Cup has definitely contained some magic over the years and always provides a new distraction from the Premier League and other Football Leagues, but for punters betting on the FA Cup is often a minefield.
Ian Holloway has already publicly stated that he will not field most of his first choice team and Blackpool make the 530 mile trip down to Southampton, facing an inform Saints side who have had consecutive home ties at St Mary’s so far in this competition. Southampton have won 4 out of the last 6 games in League One scoring 14 goals and conceding just 4. They’ve also scored 5 goals in the previous 2 rounds and Adam Lallana has scored in each game. The midfielder has scored in the last 2 games in League One as well and will look to again get himself again on the scoresheet.
Adam Lallana to score anytime @2.75
A team with impressive squad depth is Tottenham. No matter what starting 11 Harry Redknapp decides to put out, Spurs should have enough about them to dispatch Charlton who have not won in 4 games in League One. Corluka, Bassong, Kranjcar, Sandro, Palacios and Defoe will all have points to prove and press their claims of a more regular starting berth. Charlton have shipped 7 goals in their last 2 games and Harry Redknapp has pedigree in this cup having famously lifted this trophy in 2008 with Portsmouth. Spurs might lay down a marker on Sunday in a competition they will feel they have a good chance of winning.
Tottenham -1 @1.72
