Best FA Cup third round bets for Saturday 9 January

We're sticking with Stoke to do the business...

We’ve looked through the Saturday coupon and have five bets for the FA Cup

The FA Cup might not be the magical competition of old, with Premier League managers ready to devalue the tournament at the third round stage, although it has still thrown up some intriguing match-ups.

We’ve scanned through the Saturday coupon and come up with a few tasty bets that should help you make some money this weekend.

NORWICH +1 @ 23/20 with Boylesports
We fancy the Canaries to get at least a draw against a Manchester City side who lost 2-1 at Everton on Wednesday. Manuel Pellegrini will make any number of changes for this match and we could see Sergio Aguero on the bench.

Vincent Kompany is on the sidelines and Norwich are looking pretty strong at home, with Alex Neil’s side bidding for a hat-trick of consecutive wins at Carrow Road.

EASTLEIGH draw no bet @ 6/5 with bet365
We don’t see Eastleigh losing this match and are happy to take 6/5 about the Spitfires on the draw no bet market. Bolton are rock bottom of the Championship and morale at the Macron Stadium is low.

There’s less between these teams than their divisions suggest, with Eastleigh among the best that the National League have to offer and we’re taking a punt on them here.

DERBY -1 @ 11/8 with Sky Bet
The Rams are having a fantastic season and can get the better of Hartlepool by a distance. Pools should struggle to live with a club who spent £25 million on players last summer and can call upon two players for every position.

Ronnie Moore might be in for a troubled afternoon and we’re taking County to get the better of their League Two opponents by two goals or more.

STOKE @ 19/20 with Coral
The Potters were beaten at home to Liverpool on Tuesday but a trip to the Keepmoat is the sort of fixture that Stoke usually handle pretty well. Mark Hughes’ side should have that extra bit of quality against a Doncaster side in the middle of League One.

MIDDLESBROUGH win to nil @ 21/10 with Boylesports
Boro are winning and not conceding at the moment. They’ve let in just two goals at the Riverside this term, keeping six clean sheets on the bounce and they should get the better of Burnley on Saturday.

The Clarets drew a blank against Ipswich last time out and might have trouble breaching the castle wall here.
