Fa Cup semi final and weekend tips

by Ben, last updated 2006-04-19 23:58:11

I am personally going for the VCBet TV special on Arsenal and Chelsea both to win at 3.75

I may as well quote Gerry for the reasoning

The Gunners have won their last six at home; Spurs have only won two of their last eight on the road, losing five of the other six. Spurs have lost on their last seven visits to Highbury.

Liverpool have won their last seven, but have not played anyone close to Chelsea's class in that run. Chelsea have already completed a league double over the Reds, winning both games convincingly.

The double at the Special Price is too good to miss.



 Gerry's Picks

 By Gerry McDonnell

She's got one hand in my pocket


Even a blind squirrel occasionally finds an acorn. I permed my five strongest fancies in doubles and upwards last week, in what proved to be the tastiest Canadian since Alanis Morissette. Speaking of the diminutive whiny artiste, she once wrote a song with the following lyrics, ‘It's like 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife, isn't it ironic? The answer is no. If you're looking for a knife, the cutlery drawer should be the first port of call, searching in some sort of spoon factory was flawed from the very beginning.

There's no doubting the irony surrounding Sunday's FA Cup semi final between Boro and West Ham; two English managers will face off in England's greatest competition, on St George's Day, fighting to reach the Cathedral of English football; the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. Both teams have been priced up at 6/4 to win the match, after securing victory in the warm up earlier in the week, the Boro are a tentative pick.

Chelsea are a far more confident selection when they meet Liverpool in the other semi. Liverpool may have had the rub of the green in European competition against Jose's superstars, but the Champions have handed the Reds a couple of real spankings in the Premiership. At 11/10, Chelsea are a boot-filler.

Adding a virtual Champions League playoff to a North London derby is like pairing lager with a chicken madras; a mouth-watering prospect. Arsenal are finishing the season like a train; chalk up this battle to the Gunners at 4/5, as the war for four escalates.

Bolton's demise has been grossly exaggerated, only Chelsea and Man U have won at the Reebok since August. Big Sam's gang host a Charlton team that collected three points against Pompey on Monday, but the police are considering launching an investigation as it was such a blatant robbery. A home win looks attractive at 4/5.

The odds makers will occasionally price up a game where a team that needs a result will be a shorter price than their true probability should dictate. A poor West Brom side are only 3/1 to win at St James' Park against an in form Newcastle due to the ‘need to win' factor, resulting in the Toon Army being available at a relatively huge 8/11. The Geordies receive the coveted ‘nap of the week' award.

After drawing away at Old Trafford, Sunderland will be hoping that lightning strikes twice (that's one more than Jonathan Stead) as they travel to Fratton Park. Pompey destroyed the Mackems at the Stadium of Light when they weren't playing well, they're absolutely flying now. Portsmouth at 1/3 are the next best bet on the coupon.

Wigan's season has been nothing short of a fairytale, and they'll be hoping for a happy ending at the enchanted Cottage. As Fulham's home form has been sensational, the even money about a home win is the call. Sometimes, the bears have to eat.


The weekend specials revolve around the North London derby:

"Coming to an Ed" - Edgar Davids to score at any time 6/1
"What a Lehmann" - Arsenal to keep a clean sheet 11/8
"Imagine" - Aaron Lennon to score at any time 9/2
"RSVP" - Reyes, Silva and Van Persie all to score 100/1
"Carri OK" - Michael Carrick to score at any time 8/1

Quote of the week:

"If you have a car and you win a race, you cannot just settle for that, you must try and make the car better. We're a good car, but you always want a bigger engine."

Rafa Benitez tells a familiar tale.

Stat, you're a liberty:

There is only one team in the Premiership who have not been involved in a goalless draw this season, it's Wigan.

Acc of the week:

Chelsea, Arsenal, Newcastle, Portsmouth and Fulham are all standout wagers on their own, throw them together and you have ‘super wager', an accer that pays out at a sweet 16/1.

BLUES CAN BREAK RED BLOCKADE AT bet365's 11/10
Chelsea v Liverpool
Sa Apr 22 - 5.15 pm ko (BBC1)
As usual with these two teams, a tight low-scoring game looks on the cards, but its Chelsea who are fancied to prevail at the bet365 price of 11/10 (Liverpool 12/5, 2/1 the Draw). That doesn't look a bad price considering that Chelsea have won five of the last nine encounters in the last two seasons, compared to the Red's solitary triumph in May 2005, and they probably have more potential match winners on the pitch than Liverpool. Of course, the Reds won't be easy to break down at Old Trafford, but Chelsea are fancied to nick his by one goal and progress to the final.

In the bet365 First Goalscorer market, the in-form Didier Drogba gets the nod at 5/1, especially as they'll give you your money back if he scores the last goal in the game instead. It's not difficult to envisage this game being really tight leading up to the interval, so the same firm's 4/1 about the Draw / Chelsea double result market also looks tempting. Once the game goes live, don't forget to check out their Live In-Play Console, which offers up to 14 dynamic markets on the game.

Live Game Picks:

Chelsea @ 11/10
Didier Drogba to score first @ 5/1
Draw / Chelsea @ 4/1


BORO TO NAIL HAMMERS AT 13/10
Middlesbrough v West Ham
Su Apr 23 - 4.00 pm ko (SS1)
Not forgetting the ‘other' semi final, which promises to be at least as entertaining as the match at Old Trafford, with both teams likely to go for each other's throats straight from the whistle. Both teams are much better going forward than they are sitting back, which should give the neutrals amongst us plenty of excitement, and a decent bet to boot in the shape of over 2.5 goals at 10/11. Both sides have averaged two goals per game in the FA Cup this season, and this game is likely to be no exception. As for the winner, Boro just get the nod at 13/10, with their quality winger James Morrison a good shout to score first at bet365's 11/1 (3/1 Anytime).

Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.90
James Morrison to score first @ 11/1
