Bingham’s behind Millwall while Cascarino fancies Burnley this week
If anyone is likely to cause an upset in the Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round, it’s likely to be Millwall. Not only do they boast a home advantage, they’re up against a side who’ve lost five of their last seven games in all competitions, having won just one game on the road since mid September.
So that should suit Neil Harris’ men nicely, especially as they’ve now gone some 12 games unbeaten in all competitions themselves.
They’ve also gone 480 minutes without conceding a goal, which must be why talkSPORT’s Georgie Bingham has chosen the Lions for her charity bet this weekend.
But the 19/10 on Millwall winning apparently isn’t good enough for Georgie. She’s bumped up her potential returns (which – as always – would go to Help For Heroes) by turning her bet into a wincast.
That means Fourth Round hero Steve Morison will have to find the net in a Millwall win for Bingham’s bet to land. And were that to happen, we’d pay out at 15/4.
Her Weekend Sports Breakfast co-commentator, Tony Cascarino, is also going down the wincast route.
But his bet concerns Burnley, who’ll welcome Non-League outfit Lincoln City to Turf Moor this weekend.
Simply put, the Clarets have been in frightening form at home this season. Of their 14 league games at Turf Moor, they’ve won nine and drawn two.
With their Premier League status all but guaranteed for a year, Sean Dyche’s focus now has to be on a solid cup run. And with that in mind, it’s unlikely he’ll field too weak a side this weekend.
That means Sam Vokes is likely to feature, and it just so happens that Tony has backed a Vokes/Burnley wincast this weekend.
Granted, at 5/4, it’s not as long a shot as Georgie’s, but Tony’s bets have been well worth keeping an eye on in recent weeks.
He just missed out last week, opting for a Firmino/Liverpool wincast against Tottenham Hospur, while he was right on the money two weeks ago, correctly predicting that Eden Hazard would score in a Chelsea win over Arsenal.
As always, should Tony’s bet come in, we’ll be donating the returns to his chosen charity, Cancer Research UK.
Ladbrokes’ David Williams (@magicsignman) will be joining Georgie and Tony live on air this weekend, so make sure you’re listening to find out who’s hot, who’s not, and where the money is going.
