FA Cup Over 2.5 Goal Treble

FA Cup Over 2.5 Goal Treble

There is plenty of FA Cup action taking place tonight, with there being ten 1st round replays on show.

With there being such high stakes on the line for the clubs, we are hoping to see every side go for it and subsequently, see plenty of goals fly in. In fact, in the 1st round, there was only one 0-0 fixture that resulted in a replay, so the chances are promising.

We’ve picked out an over 2.5 goal 3.71/1 treble with SkyBet tonight – take a read of our selections below and see if you fancy it!

Eastleigh v Stourbridge – 4/7

The first selection of tonight’s treble sees Conference Premier side Eastleigh welcome Stourbridge to the Silverlake Stadium. Their clash in the first fixture was always likely too see goals and it certainly did not disappoint, with Eastleigh grabbing an equaliser with five minutes to spare to make it 2-2 and force tonight’s replay. They put four past Welling United at home to reach this stage in the competition to begin with, meaning the club have now scored 12 goals in their last 5 fixtures.

They are the big favourites tonight against the lower division side in Stourbridge, and we could see them grab a couple in the process. Gary Hackett’s side haven’t kept a clean sheet in their previous 12 fixtures, conceding 11 goals in their last 5. Such stats are the reasoning behind their inclusion in tonight’s treble, with Skybet having this game down at 4/7 to see over 2.5 goals. It isn’t the biggest price amongst tonight’s FA Cup fixtures, but it does help bolster the potential returns in our overall selection.

Peterborough v Stevenage – 4/7

One of the biggest upsets in the 1st round was undoubtedly Stevenage’s draw with Peterborough. The Boro only have 13 points after 17 games in League Two, with such form seeing them sit rock bottom of the table. In contrast, the Posh have been in strong form in League One, setting their sights on an ambitious, but not unlikely, automatic promotion place. Peterborough’s form has simply come from their offensive prowess, to which they have the best attacking record in the league itself.

They have four players already at double digits for the season, and we expect them to turn up the heat at home tonight. It’s been reported that Darren Ferguson will be fielding a stronger starting eleven, with their best market price to win being 2/5. The over 2.5 goal market has delivered in Peterborough’s last 3 home fixtures, with them scoring 8 goals in this time. Should they turn up tonight, they should have too much for Stevenage to handle.

Given their prolific form at the Weston Homes Stadium, SkyBet’s odds of 4/7 to see over 2 goals tonight looks to be a fair price.

Bromley v Bristol Rovers – 37/40

Bromley have certainly been an entertaining side to watch this season, sitting second in the Conference Premier with the joint-best attacking record in the division. With 37 goals in just 21 games, they certainly have talent in their frontline, something we saw in this reverse fixture just over a week ago. The Ravens gave it a solid go at the Memorial Stadium, snatching a deserved draw to force this exciting replay tonight. They are 2/1 underdogs to get the win though, but we are expecting another brave display from Neil Smith’s men.

The Pirates will have been disappointed to let their lead slip at home, and the League One side are the inevitable bookie’s favourite for tonight. They actually enter today’s clash on the back of an impressive win over Swindon, meaning their confidence should be up. Bristol Rovers are now undefeated in their last 4, making the fixture tonight a tricky one to call.

Regardless of the result, we fancy both side’s chances in-front of goal against one another. It’s unlikely to see a dominating display from one side, and SkyBet’s both teams to score market price of 13/20 looks a solid choice for any other favoured accumulators tonight. At 37/40, there is some value in seeing over 2.5 goals too.
