Watford vs Burton Albion – England FA Cup 2017 – Match Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips
Usually, Cup ties involving a Premier League team and a lower league team are very one-sided. Hence there are few betting opportunities – especially since it’s hard to predict if a team takes a cup seriously or not.
There are, of course, exceptions, and Watford – Burton is one of them since both teams are struggling at the moment. Will we see a competitive draw, or will both teams just ignore this competition to focus on their league games?

Watford is in poor form at the moment, failing to win a single game out of their last 5. They could be looking into this game as a way to return to their winning ways, especially since their squad has sufficient depth to rest a couple of first team players and still field a competitive team. Home ground advantage could also prove critical here if the fans choose to back their team instead of booing them for their less-than-ideal recent performances.
Thankfully for Watford, they face one of the weakest teams in the Championship, Burton. Burton has a single win in their last 5 games, against bottom-team Rotherham, and is currently very busy attempting to avoid relegation from the Sky Bet Championship.
They sit a single point over Blackburn, which is 22nd, meaning that they have to start picking up points sooner rather than later if they don’t want to be playing League One football next season. That being said, we expect them to not treat the FA Cup with high priority.
Watford vs Burton Betting Tips
And that’s why we believe Watford will win this game. The team wants the win as well, since they haven’t produced good football in a while, and a win would also please their fans. Watford to win and to score at least twice in the process is our recommendation of the day, while an over 2,5 goal bet shouldn’t be ignored.

English FA Cup 2017 – Match Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips The 3rd round of the FA Cup showed us some very surprising results.

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.

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.

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?

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.
