Hyde United are 5,000/1 to win the FA Cup but they should be ten times that price to do a Leicester City. The Premier League champions from two seasons ago were competing at their level but Hyde are the lowest ranked team in the competition and big outsiders in their televised fixture at home to MK Dons tonight. The visitors do not get involved in high scoring matches so less than three goals looks a good bet.
Hyde play in the eighth tier and MK Dons play in League 1. That disparity should see the favourites win by at least three goals. However, adrenaline and motivation can count for a lot so we should be favouring Hyde. Avoiding defeat looks beyond them but backing HYDE +2 GOALS at with 5/4 with Coral could pay dividends. A defeat by one goal and any other outcome would make this a winning bet.
The Championship match between Wolves and Fulham at Molineux has goals written all over it. Both teams have found the net in all but one of Fulham’s last 10 fixtures. There have been 21 goals in Wolves seven home fixtures this season and 17 in Fulham’s seven away. The home team are odds-on to win the match but Fulham are no mugs going forward so the bet is OVER 2.5 GOALS at 8/11 with bet365.
Wetherby stages its biggest race tomorrow, the Charlie Hall Chase, and the £100,000 contest has attracted a great field as long as they all turn up. Blaklion looks overpriced at 8/1. You can boost your betting bank today with a banker bet at the track. You won’t get rich backing Malaya in the 2pm race. Paul Nicholls won this race in 2012 and 2016 so his MALAYA, a decent recruit from France, should be backed at 5/6 with William Hill. The horse has plenty in hand on ratings so can’t be opposed.
However, if you are looking for a lottery style win you should have a tenner on Hyde to win the Cup. Stranger things have happened… in Leicester!
