Over Land And Sea – The Odds Manager Weekend Football Preview


FA Cup

We’ve got plenty of 4th round action this weekend, as the FA Cup attempts to whittle entrants down from 32 to 16.

It all starts on Friday night in the big “glamour tie” between Chorley and Wolves. 

Chorley play in the lowly sixth tier of English football, and are priced as big as 22/1 with BetVictor to pull off a mammoth upset.

It’s Cheltenham’s turn on Saturday, as the League 2 outfit look to put an end to Pep Guardiola’s winning run.

Manchester City are most likely to win this one 3-0 if we look at the bookies odds, priced at a fairly short 11/2 with Paddy Power to record that scoreline in the “correct score” market.

There are some more evenly matched ties in the form of Southampton v Arsenal, Fulham v Burnley and Everton v Sheffield United as the Premier League morphs into the cup.

Arsenal are the most successful FA Cup side in history and are best priced at 13/10 with Betfred to win inside 90 minutes at St. Mary’s. 

Wycombe Wanderers take on Tottenham under the Monday night floodlights, with the “Chairboys” 6/1 with 888sport to qualify for the 5th round.


Let’s start at home in the Premier League. 

We’ve got one solitary fixture between Aston Villa and Newcastle this weekend, with Aston Villa favoured at 9/20 with bet365 to scoop a home win.

Elsewhere, Serie A is really beginning to hot up as we pray for a new name on the Scudetto for the first time since 2011.

Milan are the league leaders currently with Zlatan Ibrahimovic rolling back the years with ease. The Swede is 7/2 with BetVictor to open the scoring against Atalanta this Saturday late afternoon.

Inter are chasing their rivals hard, just three points off the summit themselves. Antonio Conte’s “I Nerazzurri” travel to Udinese on Saturday with bet365 pricing them at 4/7 for a win.

How will Real Madrid respond in La Liga? 

Zinedine Zidane’s side lost 2-1 to a third-tier Alcoyano in midweek Copa Del Rey action, but are still 2/5 with BetVictor to bounce back with a win at Alaves on Saturday night.

‘And what about the Bundesliga?’ we hear you ask. 

Bayern Munich travel to Schalke on Sunday afternoon looking to stretch their lead at the top of the tree.

If you fancy the upset, 14/1 with Betfair says Schalke can hand the champions their third league defeat of the season.


There’s a real chasm appearing at the top of the Scottish Premiership.

Steven Gerrard’s Rangers enjoy a 20–(yes, TWENTY) point gap over their rivals Celtic in second, with that gap expected to get wider this weekend.

With Scottish League Cup semi-finals stripping away the Premiership schedule, just Aberdeen v Motherwell and Rangers v Ross County are left, with Rangers a staggering 1/9 with 888sport to make it 22 league wins out of 25.

Rangers are averaging over two goals a game this season and you can get 8/13 with bet365 for them to score over 2.5 on Saturday afternoon.
