It’s FA Cup weekend and our man with the betting plan, Kevin Loman, is back with his top tips for where you should be sticking your money on this weekend's football.

The cheeky FA Cup accumulator

The FA Cup, like the famed Grand National, is notoriously difficult to call. So, like the famed horserace, if you’re going to take a punt, it’s best to go big and spread your bets if you want a decent return.

THE BET

Bolton (v Cardiff) at 17/10
Huddersfield (v Charlton) at 19/20
Hull (v Southend) at 17/20
Everton (v Stevenage) at 3/10

Accumulator at 11.66/1

That’s a potential profit of £291.50 from a free £25 bet.

Leicester v Middlesbrough

Leicester are unbeaten in five home league meetings with Boro, but overall five of the last 11 games have ended in a draw. Forgetting the match result for a minute, it's the form of Boro winger Mustapha Carayol that catches the eye… scoring five goals in his last six away games.
 
THE BET

Carayol to score anytime at 10/3

That’s a potential profit of £83.33 from a free £25 bet.
