Bet on Premier League team to fall in cup replay

| 18.01.2011

Only three Premier League sides are expected to come through their midweek FA Cup replays, according to Ladbrokes.

It’s the 1/1 that three of the four sides qualify, with all four the 5/2 second favourite. It’s a massive 125/1 that they all get knocked out by their lower league opposition.

Cardiff City are 10/3 to progress from their clash with Stoke and secure promotion to the Premier League next season with Leicester a less likely 40/1 to do the same against title-chasing Manchester City. They are 9/1 to win the match with City 2/7 favourites.

Leeds United are hoping to spring a surprise on Arsenal and can be backed at 9/2 to win the replay at Elland Road. It’s 8/13 The Gunners make amends for their recent cup upset and 11/4 the game is tied after 90 minutes.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “We expect there to be one Premier League casualty from the midweek set of fixtures but can’t be sure who at this stage. Cardiff are in a strong position to overcome Stoke at home and a victory could spur them on to securing promotion for next season.”
