With the FA Cup there is sure to be plenty of drama this weekend. However there seems to be some perfect opportunities to put a lovely banker accumulator this week. Extra work has been put in to avoid the potential banana skins, and this bet looks pretty darn good on paper.
Bolton are our first and best selection to beat Macclesfield.
The Trotters have been dire in the Premier League this season, and Owen Coyle must be wondering how he can save Bolton from the drop.
However, Bolton managed to beat Everton at Goodison Park on Wednesday and are a great shout at 8/11 to beat League 2 side Macclesfield ay Moss Rose on Saturday.
Macclesfield have a fairly solid home record in the League, but Bolton will not risk the embarrasment of a loss here and should play a pretty much full strength team.
Our second selection is Reading to pummel Stevenage
Reading are in fine form and shouldn’t have too many worries in beating Stevenage.
Stevenage have been doing well in League 1 but should find their Championship opponents far too strong. Reading have won 4 of their last 5 at home, scoring 11 goals and conceding just 4.
Stoke look good to beat Gillingham away from home.
The Gills are undefeated in their last 6 at home, but Stoke should have the quality to put paid to their good recent form.
Last season’s losing finalists will be going for it again this year, and Tony Pulis will have his team well up for this game.
Sheffield United look to have an easy task against Salisbury.
The Blades should account for Salisbury with the minimum of fuss. They’ve won their last 6 games at Brammall Lane and Conference South side Salisbury look completely out of their depth here.
Sheffield United may tinker with their team slightly, but they are flying at the moment and an easy success for them looks certain.
Our final selection is Newcastle to beat Blackburn.
Blackburn will see the FA Cup as nothing but an inconvenience, and must concentrate on Premier League survival.
Newcastle will be buzzing after their 3-0 win over Manchester United on Wednesday, and should be able to dispose of a poor Blackburn team with the minimum of fuss.
It seems Newcastle are getting back to somewhere near the form that propelled them to 3rd position in the league earlier on in the season, and Blackburn just can’t afford to risk any injuries to an already thread bare squad.
