Bet on the Welsh television cameras to cover a Swansea win

| 28.01.2011

It’s the glamour tie in Welsh football this weekend, so much so that the Welsh television channel S4C has secured the television rights as Swansea City and Leyton Orient battle it out for a place in the FA Cup fifth round.

Swansea are rightly the 1/2 favourites to win considering they are challenging for promotion at the top of the Championship while Leyton Orient languish in the League One relegation zone.

Orient are 11/2 to beat Swansea, but the previous two ties involving the two teams have seen Swansea win 4-1 and 5-0, and it’s difficult to justify any sort of cup upset occurring at the Liberty Stadium.

Luke Moore has been impressive since his January move to the Swans and this FA Cup tie could be the perfect opportunity for Moore to register his first goal and is 5/1 to score first.

A 2-0 win for Swansea is priced at 6/1 and a scorecast involving Moore and a 2-0 win is priced at 25/1.

Burnley vs Burton Albion

Burnley have already demolished league two opposition in the FA Cup this season, and considering Burton Albion are at the wrong end of the table compared to Port Vale, this can only end one way – Burnley are 4/11 to beat Burton.

This is Burton’s first appearance in the fourth round of the FA Cup, but face a Burnley side who have lost just one of their last 13 FA Cup games at Turf Moor.

Against lower-league opposition Burnley are dominant and the Clarets have scored at least two goals in five of their last six games against lower-league sides.

Eddie Howe’s side are 5/1 to win 2-0 but offer more value at 14/1 to win 4-0.

A £25 stake double on Swansea and Burnley winning would return £51. New customers can sign up here for a free bet worth £25.
