FA Cup & Championship betting - 24 Jan 2015

Blackburn - Swansea, Swansea -0.25 at 2.07 (Sbobet)
Blackburn have won only two competitive games, out of last nine (both vs. Charlton). Top scorer Gestede seems to be out, being linked with a move Crystal Palace and with being already left out in previous game against Wigan. Jordan Rhodes has scored one goal in last nine appearing and funny fact is he is linked with a move to Swansea. Visitors would like to bounce back after pretty embarrassing display against Chelsea. Monk made nine changes in previous round at Tranmere, but I expect more appropriate line-up here. They’ve won five of their last six FA Cup ties against lower league opposition. Skipper Williams is out.

Norwich - Brentford, Over 2.75 at 1.92 (Sbobet)
Norwich have been free scoring/conceding side, their last five home games have produced 26 goals! They have kept only two clean sheets at home, first round against Watford and Huddersfield. Brentford’s last game ended with 1-0 score line with reportedly few sitters missed, before that, six away games with 24 goals. They have only one draw out of 13 away games. Both sides should fancy their chances here, I think we’ll see couple of goals.

Cardiff - Reading, Cardiff -0.25 at 2.10 (BetVictor)
Not like I felt delighted to see these two sides going against each other, but after a closer look I think that prices on Cardiff is very generous. They’ve been playing really well at home, with eight wins out of 13 in league, they won last two competitive games at home and last three against Reading (both, home and away). They have lost just one of the last 12 games against the same opponent in all competitions (W5-D6-L1) and have lost just three of their last 28 FA Cup matches at home (won 18 of those). Reading away in league only two wins out of 13, to reach this stage they won at Huddersfield. In case of a draw, half stake is back.
