Its FA Cup Fourth Round weekend and one of the standout ties is struggling Fulham's trip up to face Sheffield United and we have free football tips.
Since taking over from David Weir ex-Derby boss Nigel Clough has steadied the 'The Blade's' ship. In sixteen games Clough's Sheffield United have lost only four times, won seven and drawn 5.
Included in this was a win at Villa Park in the last round in the two games since then though Sheffield have lost to Notts County and let slip a 2 goal lead against Bradford to draw 2-2. The Blades aren't in the best of form.
Fortunately, for Sheffield United Fulham's form and performances are if anything worse. Fulham tend to blow hot and cold. Wins against West Ham in the league and Norwich in the previous round have been overshadowed by heavy defeats against Sunderland and Hull.
Fulham are priced at 9/5 to win on bet365 with a United win coming in at 13/8 and a draw at 5/2 at the same provider. In other words this is a very even game. Sheffield United are slight favourites over Fulham and the bookie's think that neither side particularly wants the draw hence the better return.
What are the best bets to place then?
Fulham are not going to treat this FA Cup tie as a priority. They are fighting relegation from the Premier League. Furthermore, their side is filled with the likes of Berbatov and Taarabt who tend to play when they want to. I suspect that a 13.00pm kick off at Brammel Lane will not encourage a vintage performance from Fulham's hit and miss stars.
You've got to back Sheffield United to win. The question then is by how many.
Fulham boast the worse defensive record in the Premier League sitting on -26 goals five worse than anybody else. Sheffield United though are defensively frail also conceding on average over a goal a game. Both teams to score is 4/6 on bet365.
The stand out bet however, is both teams to score and Sheffield United to win which is 15/4 on William Hill and that is our first football tip.
As for who will score Jose Baxter is a real talent with a big future. Last season, Baxter lit up Oldham's FA Cup campaign. This season Baxter has scored 5 goals in a struggling side. Baxter to score anytime is 15/8 on bet365.
