Billericay vs Chesterfield

Tuesday evening FA Cup action comes from the AGP Arena as National League side Billericay go in pursuit of a place in the second-round in their second leg match against Chesterfield. Both sides are defensively sound sides and are renowned for drawing matches in their National League campaign, with both teams’ last three matches ending in a stalemate – including a 1-1 draw in the first leg in the reverse fixture. Another draw here is odds of 23/10 with William Hill – which would then see the tie decided via a potential penalty shoot-out. Billericay to win are priced at 13/8 with Bet365, whilst the visitors are 17/10 with Betway. We struggle to separate these two solid sides and despite the drawing being an attractive bet, we are backing under 2.5 goals in this one.

Recommended bet: Under 2.5 goals @ 8/11 with William Hill – BET HERE

Bradford City vs Aldershot

David Hopkin’s Bradford will be hoping an impressive 1-1 draw away to Peterborough in League One last weekend can be the catalyst to change their fortunes this term and a win in their FA Cup second leg match against National League Aldershot could also contribute to a potential resurgence. A win for the hosts of the tie from Valley Parade is 3/4 with Bet Victor, whilst the draw is 11/4 with Bet365. Aldershot will be coming into this match with confidence after holding the hosts to a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture and a win for the National League side is 4/1 with Unibet. We are expecting another close-fought contest here, but we do expect the home sides’ class to prevail with a narrow win in normal time.

Recommended bet: Bradford City to win 1-0 @ 6/1 with BetVictor – BET HERE

Charlton vs Mansfield

League One Charlton play the impressive League Two team Mansfield in a second leg match in the first-round of the FA Cup on Tuesday evening. The tie is an extremely intriguing one between the hosts, who will be hoping to earn promotion to the Championship this year, and the visitors – who will be hoping to make it into the third-tier come next season. The first tie was a tight affair which ended in a 1-1 draw and the same result here is 12/5 with William Hill – whilst the home side are 9/10 favourites with Bet365. Mansfield are 10/3 with Betway to win here and despite Charlton being a league above, we are backing the impressive and exciting Mansfield to run out winners in another tight affair.

Recommended bet: Mansfield double chance @ 10/11 with Betfair – BET HERE

Cheltenham vs Ebbsfleet

Cheltenham play Ebbsfleet at Whaddon Road on Tuesday night in a second leg tie in the FA Cup first-round. The first match at Stonebridge Road earlier this month ended in an uninspiring 0-0 draw for both sides – but Cheltenham were arguably the better side in that one and that is evident in their odds of 9/10 with Bet365. However, considering they’ve went six matches unbeaten and they held their League One opposition to a draw in their last meeting – Ebbsfleet will come into this one with hopes of defying their odds of 7/2 with Unibet. The draw is attractive odds of 5/2 with Bet Victor, but despite Ebbsfleet’s recent efforts – we think the hosts will get the job done in this one.  

Recommended bet: Cheltenham to win 2-0 @ 8/1 with BetVictor – BET HERE

Crawley vs Southend United

League Two plays League One at Broadfield Stadium in the FA Cup on Tuesday evening as hosts Crawley look to take positives from their late fightback against Southend at Roots Hall in the first-round. Southend looked to have sealed a place in the second-round of the domestic cup competition on home soil ten days ago, but Crawley hung in on the tie defensively and secured a big replay against the third-tier opponents at Broadfield this week. The sides are split right down the middle with their prices, with Crawley priced at 5/2 with Bet365 and Southend the slight favourites at 5/4. Despite both sides being likely to go for the win here, we are backing the draw in this one to send the match all the way.

Recommended bet: Draw @ 23/10 with William Hill – BET HERE

Doncaster Rovers vs Chorley

The Keepmoat Stadium is the host of Doncaster against Chorley this week in the replay of this season’s FA Cup first-round. The last tie between the pair was an exciting one which ended in a 2-2 draw at the home of the National League side and Tuesday’s match should be another good one. Doncaster will be looking to impose themselves as the side who clearly have the class on paper to win this on the bigger League One pitch and the hosts are short favourites at 1/4 with Unibet. Chorley beat Kidderminster 4-0 last weekend in the National League, but still head into this one as 14/1 outsiders at 14/1 with William Hill. The draw is 24/5, also with William Hill – but we are back the player who bagged the brace in the last meeting – Herbie Kane to score again here.

Recommended bet: Herbie Kane to score first @ 10/1 with SkyBet – BET HERE

Halifax vs Morecambe

National League Halifax take on League Two Morecambe in the reverse tie from their recent 0-0 draw as the two sides square off for a place in the second-round of the competition. Halifax have been in good form, beating Dover 1-0 last time out – whilst Morecambe recorded the same scoreline away to the impressive Forest Green last weekend, but are still 17/11 to win this one with Bet365. The draw could be a good bet after the sides created very few chances in the recent fixture and that result is 23/10 with William Hill. Halifax are 2/1 with Betfair – but this two game often throws up a cracker and we are backing over 2.5 goals in this one, with recent results including a 6-2 win for Halifax back in 2016 and a 4-0 win for Morecambe back in 2007.

Recommended bet: Over 2.5 goals @ evens with William Hill – BET HERE

Forest Green vs Oxford United

Two more Football League sides face off in their FA Cup replay on Tuesday evening as the impressive Forest Green take on a resurgent Oxford. Their meeting at the Kassam Stadium ended in a poor game for the neutral, with a 0-0 draw the eventual score-line. However, with both sides hoping to advance into the second-round in front of what is expected to be a bumper crowd – this match should be a lot better for the neutral. Oxford come into this one as the 32 favourites with Betway, whilst the draw to take the tie past 90 minutes is attractive odds of 23/10 with William Hill. However, after an impressive season so far – especially on home soil – we are backing Forest Green to win this one in 90 minutes.

Recommended bet: Forest Green to win @ 15/8 with BetVictor – BET HERE

Oxford City vs Tranmere

A replay of the best tie from the first-round FA Cup matches is set to go ahead on Tuesday night as Oxford City look to defy their odds of 17/4 with Bet365 to beat the impressive Tranmere in another expected thriller. Four brilliant goals treat fans to a fantastic second-half in the game at Prenton Park in Birkenhead earlier this month and Tranmere will be hopeful of a more professional defensive job here and a win is odds of 4/5 with Bet Victor for the visitors. The draw is 13/5 with William Hill, but after a wonderful hat-trick in the first match against Tranmere, we are backing Kabongo Tshimanga to score anytime here.

Recommended bet: Kabongo Tshimanga to score anytime @ 10/3 with Bet365 – BET HERE

Slough vs Sutton United

Two National League sides go to battle on Tuesday evening as Slough take on Sutton in a replay tie from their 0-0 game earlier this month. The tie in Sutton was a poor one, but both teams will be desperate to impress ahead of a potential big tie with a football league club in the second-round if they are to advance. Sutton will be hoping to continue their impressive National League form which has seen them go six games unbeaten as of late and for that reason the visitors are quoted as the 13/10 favourites with Bet365. The same bookmaker are offering odds of 12/5 also to win and the draw could be a good bet at 9/4 with Betway. This one should be an intriguing one and despite neither side finding the back of the net in the last match between these sides – we are backing both teams to score here.

Recommended bet: Both teams to score @ 8/11 with William Hill – BET HERE
