Quite an uneven game, since Millwall are in League One at the moment – and not even at the top of it. They currently sit 9th with a 41-39 goal difference, which actually leads us to believe they won’t be really disappointed if they exit the FA Cup. They’re just a few points shy of the playoff spots, which would clearly be of much bigger help for the club than progressing a few rounds in a cup competition which they really can’t win. They do play the tie at home, but will surely rest a couple of their first team players.
Meanwhile, Bournemouth is one of the teams to watch in the Premier League this season. They are sitting in 9th place, just like their adversaries in the FA Cup, but do so two divisions above. They’re coming after a 3-3 draw against Arsenal, a game which they led 3-0 and conceded the last goal in the 92nd minute, but where they showed great football – just like in their 4-3 victory against Liverpool. Bournemouth is not the greatest away team in the world this year and will also rest a couple of key players, but the quality of their squad should be enough to take them through.
Millwall vs Bournemouth Betting Tips
That being said, there are two or three bets we find ideal for this game. X2 is the first and clearest, Bournemouth to score is the second, while an over 1,5 goal bet is another virtual certainty, since both teams score and concede quite a few. Thus, you can also go for a “both teams to score” bet here. The idea is simple: many goals, Bournemouth to progress.
Both Teams To Score & Over 2.5 Goals @ 2.10 or 11/10 with 138
Bournemouth Win & Over 2.5 Goals @ 3.00 or 2/1 with 138

English FA Cup 2017 – Match Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips The 3rd round of the FA Cup showed us some very surprising results. Southampton’s game against Norwich almost didn’t make this list of surprises, but the Canaries managed to score a 92nd-minute equalizer which brought them a replay. Can they produce another excellent performance, this time away from home? Southampton vs Norwich City – 18/01/2017 Match Odds At xNx Full Time Result: Southampton 1.53 or 8/15, Draw 4.50 or 7/2, Norwich 6.50 or 11/2 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.75 or 3/4, Under 2.05 or 21/20 Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.90 or 10/11, No 1.90 or 10/11 xNx – Up To £200 Bonus For New Customers – Thankfully…
English FA Cup 2017 – Match Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips The FA Cup is one of the few competitions in the world which still favors a replay system. If two teams draw any time before the semi-finals, the game is replayed with the original away team as the new hosts. This leads to some teams having packed calendars, as is the case of Liverpool – who have to play minnows Plymouth for the second time in a short interval. Plymouth vs Liverpool – 18/01/2017 Match Odds At xNx Full Time Result: Plymouth 11.00 or 10/1, Draw 6.00 or 5/1, Liverpool 1.30 or 3/10 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.57 or 4/7, Under 2.35 or 27/20 Both Teams To Score: …
English FA Cup 2017 – Match Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips With the FA Cup coming to its latter stages, the games become more and more balanced. Each round, we now see a good number of replays, that take their toll on the team’s domestic schedule and, for some, their European fixtures as well. Thankfully, Crystal Palace and Bolton are not involved in European Cups, but they evidently wanted to avoid this second clash between them. Crystal Palace vs Bolton – 17/01/2017 Match Odds At xNx Full Time Result: Crystal Palace 1.61 or 8/13, Draw 4.10 or 31/10, Bolton 6.00 or 5/1 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.85 or 17/20, Under 1.95 or 19/20 Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.90…
English FA Cup 2017 – Match Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips Burnley vs. Sunderland was one of the few clashes involving only Premier League teams in the third round, and we’ll now have the chance to see it again, thanks to the 0-0 draw in the first match between the two sides. While Burnley sits rather comfortably just below the middle of the Premier League standings, Sunderland will clearly favor their relegation battle over this game. Can we see an easy home victory here? Burnley vs Sunderland – 17/01/2017 Match Odds At xNx Full Time Result: Burnley 1.95 or 19/20, Draw 3.60 or 13/5, Sunderland 4.20 or 16/5 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 2.00 or 1/1, Under 1.80 or 4/5…
Bristol City vs Fleetwood Town – England FA Cup 2017 – Match Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips Bristol City – Fleetwood Town is yet another game from the FA Cup Third Round where a Championship Team meets a League One team. This time, the higher division team gets to play at home, which could prove to be quite a decisive advantage. That being said, can the lower league team produce the surprise here, and at least earn a replay? Bristol City vs Fleetwood Town – 07 January 2017 Match Odds At xNx Full Time Result: Bristol 1.75 or 3/4 Draw 3.90 or 29/10 Fleetwood 5.00 or 4/1 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.80 or 4/5 Under 2.00 or 1/1 Both…
Blackpool vs Barnsley – England FA Cup 2017 – Match Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips There’s no doubt that the FA Cup is the competition with the richest history in the world. In the 3rd round, Barnsley, a good team from the Championship, will play with Blackpool, one of the most spectacular teams of the least 10 years in terms of promotions and relegations. Is this one of the most unbalanced games of the stage, or will Blackpool produce the upset? Blackpool vs Barnsley – 07 January 2017 Match Odds At xNx Full Time Result: Blackpool 3.50 or 5/2 Draw 3.60 or 13/5 Barnsley 2.15 or 23/20 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.80 or 4/5 Under 2.00 or 1/1 Both…
