Hello and welcome back once again to The ProTipster Football Show, today we’re (mostly) all about the FA Cup, we’ve a sprinkling of La Liga too and I depserately wanted to have some Serie A in there too, but woe is me I left out the stellar Fiorentina – Inter match, sorry. My bad. We’re back though with a bang and we’ve got some great FA Cup Betting Tips.

We kick off by speaking about the Liverpool Vs Everton clash happening on Friday night. Regular listeners will know that we released a Combined XI podcast yesterday where we took the Liverpool and Everton squads and picked our best starting XI players. And we damn well near came to blows over a disagreement regarding Philippe Coutinho and Mohammed Salah, but you’ll have to listen to it. You can do so here.
Next up we turn to the return of La Liga in Spain and we speak a bit about the Seville derby between Sevilla and Betis. Betis haven’t won away at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium (what a name) since Methuselah was knee-high to a grasshopper. The boys take a good look at the match and find some value here, there’s a bit of disagreement too about what they predict, but sure we all love when experts disagree and cause a bit of tension don’t we? I know I do anyway.
Anyway, SEvilla have a new manager and ProTipster Dan pours scorne on the urban myth of the ‘managerial bounce’
Next up we return to Blighty for the FA Cup and the all Premier League clash between Manchester City and Burnley. I pick on ProTipster Dan again and you’ll find out why. A fiercely interesting match this, City will probably play a fair few fringe players who will be kean to get some first team action and maybe force themselves into manager Pep Guardiola’s reckoning. Burnley though should play a full strength team since they’ve nothing to lose going for a good cup run and they way their form is who would deny them a chance at FA Cup glory….well, Blackburn fans would for obvious reasons, but that’s for another day.
We’ve got a Championship Vs Premier League match up next; Wolves Vs Swansea is next up. The ProTipster Crew have scoured the internet for solid information on this and I’m afraid to report than neither team is taking it seriously. And neither will want a draw. Should you bet on the draw? Probably not.
Fulham Vs Southampton quickly follows, Fulham have found some good form lately and are steadily climbing up the Championship while Southampton are slipping further and further down the Premier League table. Is a home upset on the cards? The odds are close and this is the kind of game the ProTipster Crew love mulling over.

Another Championship Vs Premier League battle is next on the cards, Norwich are at home to Chelsea. The Canaries haven’t been great lately they’ve hit some bad form and let’s be honest, Chelsea aren’t going to be very bothered with this match, they’ve got bigger fish to fry with a calender nearly full of matches and should this go to a replay they’ll be playing every 3 days until March, something they really won’t want. So, do they go for a win and get some players off at 60 minutes or just go with reserves and come what may? The ProTipster Boys have plenty to contemplate here.
For Sunday then we look at yet another Champions Vs Premier League clash when managerless Nottingham Forest take on Arsenal at the City Ground. We take a minute away from predictions and have a wee chat about our shared love and admiration for Arsenal manager’s vendetta against English referees. It’ll all end in tears. Can’t wait. Arsenal will play youngster, as they always do in the FA Cup, what is the plan for Nottingham Forest?
Finally then we take a look at England’s strangest derby, Brighton & Hove Albion Vs Crystal Palace, the predictions are stark here and it looks like one to avoid. The ProTipster Boys will tell you why.
