We’re down to the last 32 in the prestigious FA Cup.
This may be the cup for dreamers in the lower divisions, but with 15 Premier League sides making up nearly half the draw, there’s still a majority of wheat compared to the loveable chaff.
That being said, we’re going to lose either Manchester United or Liverpool at this hurdle.
We’ve only just woken up from the slumber of last weekend’s matinee performance of this derby, just in time for the main event on Sunday.
Chorley, Crawley Town and Cheltenham Town make up the three Cs from outside the top three tiers of English football, looking for further giant killings.
We’ve picked out two possible Top Odds Picks upsets this for this weekend, both with tasty prices.
Our Top Odds Pick – Nottingham Forest to beat Swansea – 5/2 at Betfair
You can never trust the Championship sides in the FA Cup.
Most are so preoccupied with navigating the slippery slope of life in the second tier that a cup fixture unfortunately acts as an unnecessary distraction for some.
This thought process opens up the value in backing Forest to get the better of Championship high-flyers Swansea.
Chris Hughton has improved the Reds since taking charge and an away win at the Liberty could galvanize a push up the table.
Our Extra Pick – Brentford to beat Leicester & BTTS – 7/1 at BetVictor
Leicester, Leicester, and Leicester – everyone’s talking about Leicester.
Sure, they’ve just brushed aside Chelsea to remain in the hunt for a second Premier League title in six seasons, but what will their cup ambitions look like?
They arguably struggle with real depth at the King Power, and if a few big names are missing this weekend then Brentford could easily pick their pockets.
Brentford are unlucky not to be a Premier League team this season and they look like strong contenders to make the jump up in May.
Both teams are in cracking form, but the value lies with the hosts.
