The best six bets on the FA Cup this weekend

Andre Gray looking to make Arsenal pay

We’ve scanned through the coupon and picked out some value bets for the FA Cup fourth round

After Derby County and Manchester United have faced off on Friday night, there are a clutch of FA games taking place on Saturday and we’ve examined the coupon accordingly.

Hopefully, we’ve seen some value from the weekend matches and here are our best six bets for the fourth round:

TOTTENHAM -1 to beat Colchester @ evens with Sky Bet
Spurs won’t be at full-strength on Saturday lunchtime although they don’t need to be. Tottenham will be facing a team who are League Two-bound and they should win with something to spare against Colchester.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side came through a replay against Leicester and look set to take this competition seriously enough to beat a poor team by two goals or more.

ANDRE GRAY to score v Arsenal @ 15/4 with 888sport
Gray is the Championship’s leading scorer and could cause problems against an Arsenal defence for whom Per Mertesacker is suspended. Gray tore the Derby defence apart on Monday and Burnley are in the groove right now when it comes to scoring goals.

SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY to beat Shrewsbury @ 21/20 with William Hill
The Owls have won six of their past eight matches and can get the better of a Shrews team who lost at home to Oldham during the week. Carlos Carvalhal’s side have got Gary Hooper banging in the goals and he has five from his past three.

WEST HAM DNB @ 7/4 to beat Liverpool with Sky Bet
We wouldn’t put anyone off the away win although taking the draw no bet gives us some insurance and also a great price about West Ham beating Liverpool for the third time this season. The Reds will be under-strength and Slaven Bilic’s side could take full advantage.

PETERBOROUGH +1 v West Brom @ 13/10 with Coral
Posh will take a sizeable following to The Hawthorns and can spring a surprise against a West Brom team showing a similar number of changes from the team that faced Bristol City.

Indeed, City came close to beating the Baggies last time out and Peterborough are capable of scoring goals and playing freely against opponents not particularly interested in this competition.

BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE during Carlisle v Everton @ 9/13 with 10Bet
Everton are an attack-minded team that played out a 5-3 victory at Oakwell earlier this season in the Capital One Cup. We could see a similar scoreline against a Carlisle side who will be going for broke in the hope of landing a big cup upset and heaping more misery on Roberto Martinez.

All odds were correct at time of posting.
