Chelsea v Hull Tips – Friday 16th February
Chelsea begin a defining week and bit under Antonio Conte, fresh from their 3-0 win over West Brom. That win made it five clean sheets in six at home in the league for the Blues, ahead of facing goal-shy Hull this weekend. They’ll have an eye on meetings with Barcelona and Man United the following week, which are bound to be crucial games for Conte’s future. We see the Italian resting stars for those clashes, so we’re backing the Blues to record a low scoring win, especially after loaning out the man who has scored 75% of their FA Cup goals so far.
Betting Tip: Chelsea & Under 2.5 at 13/5 with Ladbrokes
Sheffield Wednesday v Swansea Tips – Saturday 17th February
Saturday’s opening live game is yet another away trip for the Swans, who are aiming to avoid a replay for the third consecutive round. They did concede home and away to League Two side Notts County in the previous round, while Sheffield Wednesday are coming off the back of their first win under their new boss. We see them itching to get one over former manager Carlos Carvalhal, who landed on his feet in the Premier League after the Owls sacked him. With that in mind, we’re going with both teams to score.
Betting Tip: Both teams to score at 5/6 with Betfred
Huddersfield v Man United Tips – Saturday 17th February
Huddersfield will be desperate to repeat their 2-1 win which they recorded over Man United earlier this season. As it happens, this could be the perfect chance for them to do so. Not only have the Red Devils just lost out to Newcastle on the road, but the Terriers beat Bournemouth 4-1 on Sunday. With United likely to have an eye on their midweek Champions League action, we think a punt on Huddersfield is worthwhile here.
Betting Tip: Huddersfield Draw No Bet at 6/1 with Betfair
Rochdale v Tottenham Tips – Sunday 18th February
Tottenham would have been worried about Rochdale’s pitch already, but their exert in Italy on Tuesday has only made matters worse. While Spurs have an impressive 2-2 draw from their trip to Turin, they really took it out of themselves in their display against Juventus. We can see Rochdale catching them cold, judging by how Newport scored twice at home to Spurs in the previous round.
Betting Tip: Both teams to score at 13/10 with BetVictor
