IT'S an Easter Monday with a difference because we've got an FA Cup quarter-final to look forward to.

And what a game it is – Chelsea v Man United just two days after both recorded contrasting results in the Premier League.

For me it's a United win but I'll put up a full betting preview in the morning.

In the evening there is a live Premier League game between Fulham and QPR and that should be a cracking London derby with Rangers desperate for the points

There is also virtually a full card of English league games – and that could mean trouble for punters so soon after the weekend fixtures.

Peterborough beating Cardiff for the second time this season at the weekend summed up the nature of the Championship but the leaders should bounce back by beating Blackburn at home.

In League One Sheffield Utd are probably best bets at home to Carlisle while Gillingham will be backed to see off Rotherham in League Two.

I much prefer the Scottish card where there is only on game – the SPL clash between St Johnstone and Dundee Utd at McDiarmid Park. We know how to celebrate a holiday!

Anyway look out for the today's top tips on another post.

    Chelsea v Manchester United
    Monday 12:30, live on ITV1

    It’s difficult to understand why Chelsea (or rather Rafa Benitez) would consider that winning the FA Cup, and therefore qualification to the Europa League, is more important than finishing in the top four in the Premier League table. But that’s how it seems.

    The Blues were at Southampton on Saturday afternoon with Benitez making seven changes to the side that beat West Ham, leaving out – for whatever reason – the likes of David Luiz, Gary Cahill, Ashley Cole, Ramires, Juan Mata, Eden Hazard and Demba Ba. They lost the game 2-1 and looked disinterested according to most media sources, a result that heightens the possibility that Chelsea won’t qualify for the Champions League next season.

    True, Manchester United made changes ahead of their Premier League clash at Sunderland, but the Red Devils are 15 points clear at the top of the table and only a collapse of ginormous proportions would prevent Sir Alex Ferguson’s men from winning the title. As it happens, United won.

    It’s hard not to have some sympathy for Chelsea fans. They have an ‘outgoing’ manager at the helm who appears to be putting himself ahead of the club; after all, having ‘FA Cup winner’ on his CV from his tenure at Stamford Bridge reads far better than simply ‘scraped into the top four’.

    Of course, Benitez and Chelsea might do both, but don’t be surprised at all if the former Liverpool boss is deleting the words FA Cup winner form his draft CV come Monday afternoon. United are looking unbeatable domestically, and are in a far better place than Chelsea right now, and at this level that can count volumes.

    Match Odds and To Qualify

    The fact that Manchester United are outsiders to win the game in 90 minutes (3.0) and to qualify (2.06) is only because this game is being played at the home of Chelsea (2.5 to win in 90 minutes, 1.92 to qualify), but as Opta point out, the Red Devils have won their last two FA Cup games at Stamford Bridge and haven’t lost there in this competition since 1950.

    There’ll be those of you who give no relevance to head-to-head cup form spanning back many years and will instead use current form as a guide. You’ll no doubt know then that United are unbeaten in 23 games domestically, winning a staggering 19 of those games including their last six league games without conceding a single goal.

    Chelsea on the other hand have lost four times already in 2013, and that fact that three of those losses came against lowly QPR, Newcastle and Southampton inspires no confidence whatsoever ahead of the visit of the champions-elect.

    The Blues have also failed to beat Brentford, Reading, and the Saints (as well as losing to them this weekend) since the turn of the year, and with so much uncertainty surrounding the club they simply have to be opposed on Monday.

    Head-to-head Goal stats

    This is something that I don’t normally pay too much attention towards, but the goal stats between these two sides in recent history makes staggering reading, so perhaps they – and the relevant markets – are worth mentioning on this occasion.

    For example, from the last 11 meetings between Chelsea and Man Utd in all competitions, 10 of them (91%) resulted in both teams finding the net, and the same number of games resulted in the match ending with three or more goals being scored.

    Both teams to Score is available to back at 1.6 ahead of this match, while the Over 2.5 Goals option can be backed at 1.72.

    The Over 2.5 Goals stat is strengthened more by the fact that every one of the last seven meetings between these two finished that way, and the last five meetings all ended with at least four goals being scored. Over 3.5 Goals is available to back at 2.72 this time.

    If you’re looking to take the ‘Overs’ even higher, then how about the fact that the last five meetings between the Blues and the Red Devils have averaged 5.6 goals per game, and the last three meetings at Stamford Bridge have averaged an astonishing seven goals per game. Over 5.5 Goals can be backed at 10.0, while Over 6.5 Goals is available at 23.0.

    And just to put a balance on the Over/Under markets, if you believe this game will go completely against the recent trend then you can back Under 2.5 Goals at 2.32 and Under 1.5 Goals at 4.8.

    I’m happy to sit on the fence this time however as United are defending so well at present that I can’t be confident about Chelsea scoring, so the away team to win and qualify will be my only wagers in this encounter.

    Back Man Utd To Qualify @ 2.06

    Fulham v QPR (Monday, 20:00, Sky Sports 1)

    Fulham have won fewer points (8) than any other side in Premier League London derbies this season, but defeated Spurs in their last match
    Not even Nostradamus himself would have predicted Fulham stealing away from White Hart Lane with all the points on their last Premier League outing, given Tottenham’s lofty position. After all, the Cottagers’ dubious record in London derbies speaks for itself this season, including becoming the first members of a very exclusive list of QPR’s league victims (there are only four to date) at Loftus Road back in December. What that win at Spurs did do for Martin Jol’s side was relieve relegation fears by lifting them into tenth with a game in hand over most, which could give cause for complacency. However, for QPR, this really does represent the last chance saloon, and that extra determination may at least bring them a point.
    Recommended Bet: Lay Fulham to beat QPR @ 2.08

    Jermaine Jenas has scored in two successive appearances in the Premier League. On the last occasion that he did this (February 2007), he went on to net in three successive games
    Cast aside by Tottenham after many an injury-plagued season and two loan spells, Jermaine Jenas is revelling in his switch across to west London. The former England man has always been blessed with considerable talent, but unfortunately not the body to consistently carry the fight. Still, none of that will matter to Harry Redknapp if Jenas can continue firing in goals to help lift QPR towards their dream of Premier League survival. Alongside former stablemate Andros Townsend – on loan from White Hart Lane – the pair have breathed new life into the Hoops’ in the last two matches, both helping themselves to a pair of goals.
    Recommended Bet: Back Jermaine Jenas to score @ 8.8

    There have been just 13 goals scored in QPR’s eight Premier League London derbies this season; an average of 1.63 per game
    One of QPR’s many deficiencies this season has been their distinct lack of firepower, not helped it must be said by a series of injuries to their strikers. The three goals Rangers scored in the recent 3-1 win over Sunderland at Loftus Road represented the first time they had actually managed to surpass the two-goal mark in the Premier League this season. Although they have rectified that to a degree in recent matches, these London derbies are often tense affairs, especially where the R’s are concerned. The Hoops have managed just three goals from four cross-capital ventures, and Jol’s side have notched only once across their last two Craven Cottage fixtures.
    Recommended Bet: Back Under 2.5 goals @ 1.98

    ——————————————

    Blackpool picked up another draw over the weekend despite Gary MacKenzie temporarily putting them ahead at rivals Blackburn on Friday afternoon.

    It was a fourth tie in six matches for the Seasiders, but they are now just two points above the relegation zone after winning only once in their last eight outings.

    Chris Basham and Barry Ferguson both overcame injury problems to feature over the weekend, which means Ian Evatt and Gary Taylor-Fletcher are the only two players unavailable for Paul Ince to choose from.

    Crystal Palace suffered a humiliating 4-0 drubbing at home to Birmingham on Friday evening, suffering their second straight defeat in the process.

    They are now six points adrift of second place, but will need to keep an eye on their play-off spot as seventh-placed Leicester are just six points behind them now.

    Ian Holloway will probably look to make changes after two poor performances, and with Wilfried Zaha back from suspension he is one player likely to be recalled into the starting XI.

    Palace are winless in their last seven trips to Blackpool in league action, but registered a 2-2 draw when the sides met earlier this campaign.

    Two sides with plenty of attacking threat could produce an entertaining game, and with 18 goals shared from their last five meetings, plenty of goals could be on the cards.
    Richard Greatorex

    Verdict: Blackpool 2-2 Crystal Palace

    Over 2.5 goals at 2.13

    Monday April 1
    17:05 GMT
    Live on Sky Sports
    With the Championship even closer than ever this season you’re hard pressed to find two sides with nothing to play for but this televised fixture has just about managed that, though mutual antipathy stretching back to the time of the legendary Brian Clough will ensure a lively enough clash between these old rivals.

    Leeds
    Neil Warnock’s side have fallen away in recent weeks, having threatened to make a late run for the play-offs, and Saturday’s 3-0 defeat at Ipswich, a game they dominated until Tom Lees was sent off, was their fifth successive game without a win. Warnock is openly speculating about who will replace him in the summer, having said he had no interest in managing a Championship team next season, which cannot help his players’ motivation for their remaining fixtures.

    Derby
    If it’s difficult to make a case for the home side then it’s no easier to justify backing Derby on the road-they have not won away from Pride Park since December 15 and it’s only their superb home form, which has kept them in the top half of the table. Despite their inability to win away from home, Nigel Clough’s side have, however, scored in each of their last seven games and with an open game in prospect at Elland Road, I expect them to get on the scoresheet again.

    Both Teams to Score
    This looks a hard game to call outright. Leeds at 2.32 might attract some support given they have been strong at home for the majority of the season and the Rams’ poor away record but the best bet looks to back both teams to score at 1.87. At this stage of the season and with little at stake we should see an open game, which often leads to goals, and this would have paid out in each of Derby’s last seven fixtures on the road.

    First Goalscorer
    Steve Morison has netted three times since moving to Elland Road as a makeweight in the deal which saw Luciano Becchio join Norwich and has plenty of ability at this level. It’s worth a small play on him at the best available price to open the scoring.

    Recommended Bets
    Best: Back Both Teams to Score at 1.87
    Other: Back Steve Morison as First Goalscorer at the best available price

    Stevenage V Hartlepool

    Westley back at Boro

    Graham Westley takes charge of his first game back in charge of Stevenage against Hartlepool.

    Westley has returned to Boro, who he guided to back-to-back promotions before leaving for Preston, to replace Gary Smith who was sacked last week.

    He will be without Miguel Comminges, who is suspended after his red card in Friday’s 1-1 draw against Crawley.

    With Lee Hills a doubt with a hamstring problem, David Gray is set to fill in at left-back.

    Midfielder Gavin Mahon is struggling with a knock but new signings Alex Smith and Roarie Deacon could be added to the squad.

    Defender Smith joined on loan from Fulham on Thursday and forward Deacon was a free agent after leaving Sunderland, but neither signed in time to face Crawley.

    Hartlepool will be without suspended midfielder Simon Walton and three other players could miss out through injury.

    Walton was shown a straight red card in Friday’s home defeat to MK Dons for his challenge on Patrick Bamford and will start a three-game ban.

    Manager John Hughes could also be without fellow midfielder Ritchie Humphreys again after he missed out against the Dons due to a calf strain.

    Defender Evan Horwood and midfielder Antony Sweeney are also doubtful after they both sustained hamstring strains during Friday’s setback.

    Teenager Jack Baldwin made a surprise return to action on Friday following knee ligament damage and played the full 90 minutes, so he too could be struggling to last a second full game in the space of four days.

    Charlie Wyke, on loan from Middlesbrough, overcame a heel problem in time to start against the Dons and although fellow striker James Poole missed out due to a knock, he could return to contention to boost Hughes’ attacking options following Thursday’s departure of Steve Howard to Sheffield Wednesday on loan.

    STEVENAGE WIN @ 21/20
    STEVENAGE TO KEEP A CLEAN SHEET @ 13/8

    ONE FOR TUESDAY
    —————-

    PSG v Barcelona
    Tuesday April 2, KO 19:45
    Live on ITV
    Match Odds: PSG 5.1, Barcelona 1.78, The Draw 4.0.
    Do PSG stand a chance of causing one of the biggest upsets in this season’s Champions League by knocking out tournament second favourites Barcelona?

    The short answer is no. The club from the French capital have come a long way in a short space of time since Qatar-based QSI took over 18 months ago but on paper they lack the class and experience to challenge a side of Barcelona’s calibre. You can always make the argument that over two legs anything can happen, but I wouldn’t advise anyone to go against Barcelona’s price of 1.18 to reach the last four.

    Where PSG are likely to be found out is in defence. Carlo Ancelotti’s side had the best defensive record of any side in the competition during the group stages (three goals conceded in six games) but those figures are virtually irrelevant going into this game. PSG conceded in both legs of their 3-2 aggregate last 16 win over Valencia and have yet to face a side that comes close to Barcelona’s standard in Europe or the league. They are particularly weak at full-back, where Christophe Jallet and Maxwell tend to struggle against top-class opponents.

    Midfield is also a concern. France international Blaise Matuidi is arguably Ligue 1’s most improved player of the last 18 months but must fear having too much to do unless the team’s other midfielders raise their game. Thiago Motta (doubtful) has struggled because of injuries this season and, while Marco Verratti is a player of enormous potential, this will be a stiff test of his capabilities.

    Barcelona’s price to qualify looks right, and their price of 1.78 to win on the night is also difficult to argue with. If you wish to oppose Barca, the draw, at 4.0, would be a smarter pick than PSG at 5.1.

    While I would question PSG’s defensive abilities, they are capable of scoring. In Zlatan Ibrahimovic they have a player that has excelled all season and looked sharp in PSG’s 1-0 win over Montpellier on Friday night. He also knows the Barcelona defence well having played for the Blaugrana for a single season. He will be motivated to make his mark against his old club.

    Jeremy Menez, Ezequiel Lavezzi and the inconsistently talented Javier Pastore provide decent support, while Kevin Gameiro has maintained an excellent scoring record this season despite starting most games on the bench.

    Barcelona’s stats also suggest the hosts have a good chance of finding the net. The visitors have conceded in 15 of their last 17 games in all competitions stretching back to mid-January.

    Both teams to Score at 1.79 and over 2.5 goals at 1.86 are both worth considering.

    Recommended Bets:
    Best Bet: PSG v Barcelona Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.86

    VALUE BETS MONDAY

    Burnley v Nott’m forest..away win 17/10,huge price for a team in form,won 6 from last 7 drawing 1,these odds against a burnley team with a run of 1 win from 11 suggest they have to be backed
    Birmingham v Wolves..home win 5/4..won last 3 including a very impressive 4-0 win at Palace,losing just once in last 7 or 2 from last 12.Wolves have won last 2 and 3 from last 4 which may suggest a turn in fortunes but on closer inspection it isnt as impressive as it seams,last 2 wins were at home beating the bottom club Bristol city and middlesboro who are terrble on the road losing 7 and drawing 1 in last 8 aways,wolves also have been terrible on the road winning only once from 12 and that against a very inconsitant Millwall,this points to a home victory for Brum at good value.
    Chelsea v Man United…away win at a Massive 15/8,were they as big as that against Madrid? They need no indepth analysis no english club can touch them,rooney and co rested whilst the ”reserves” recorded yet another victory yesterday,unbeaten since the 12th of never in england and those odds for a win against a very inconsitant Chelsea are incredible,so fill your boots!!

    Sell your house, cat and everything of value – there’s huge value to be found in one of the four Danish games today!

    Silkeborg was destroyed 5-0 in their last home game and are up for a serious beating today against the nr. 1 team in Denmark. FC Copenhagen are 9-1-0 in their last 10 and have all ready beaten Silkeborg twice this season by a total of 8-1.

    I considered Copenhagen -1.5 but chose to invest more money on a straight win instead.

    A point gaurentees us top 6, Utd must win to have a chance of making the split!

    Our home form is actually pretty impressive and is only bettered by Celtic – it’s too close to call, best bet for me is over 2.5 goals!

    Blackpool v palace over 2.5 goals 7/4 in play LUMPED

  22. Part Time Punter 8 years ago

    since lumping on BTTS “inplay” on the chelsea v united game when it was well over 3/1..my morale has been shot!, i cant even get a BTTS treble up at 3pm..this cant be life!

    • Mr Fixit 8 years ago

      Part Time Punter, wasn’t a great day for btts. Only 11 games in England produced so I wouldn’t worry too much.

    I think anyone who backed Copenhagen better start grovelling as it’s not looking good….lol only joking, still time yet….any tips on goalscorers for the St.Johnstone v Dundee Utd game?

    • Mr Fixit 8 years ago

      John, I’ll have a look. It’s tough to call and of course United without top scorer Johnny Russell.

    • Mr Fixit 8 years ago

      John, Copenhagen not my tip and I’m not on but for those who are I hope they get a late goal. Back to your St Johnstone v Dundee Utd question. With no Russell and a doubt over Mackay-Steven then United’s best bet for a goal will be skipper Jon Daly who I see is 7-1 at Paddy Power. The teams are evenly matched but amazingly United are unbeaten in 19 league meetings against the Saints. That stat doesn’t give me much faith in Saints at 6-4 but I don’t think they’ll lose so take them on the double chance. Their best bet for a goal is Gregory Tade or Liam Craig but I know a Saints fan who is convinced defender Steven Anderson, without a goal this season, will net and has backed him each way at 50-1 with Ladbrokes.

    lads..give DANE him a break. He’s put up a good enough tip/reasoning with Copenhagen..game aint finished yet!! I’ve got them on a treble with Volendam n CSKA and those in the bag pretty safe so can trade out n still make a few bob.

  25. Dean 8 years ago

    Don’t believe it! 1-0 Silkeborg. I was looking at a very tidy profit today as well. I’ll do well to break even now

  26. Part Time Punter 8 years ago

    Mr F im absolutely gutted, im an arsenal fan..and to think i was willing to cheer a van persie goal in the last 3mins, iwas lookin for a few extra quid to play with in the evening games..
    there any value elswhere anyone?, this site has racked up a lot of winners since i first discovered it..keep them coming and lets keep the site growing!

    • Mr Fixit 8 years ago

      Part Time Punter, I’ve made a tidy profit after losing on Chelsea-Man Utd so I’m not doing too much else tonight. Waiting on Derby and will do btts at Fulham v QPR and possibly St Johnstone but both those games could go either way.

    • Patrick 8 years ago

      I know your treble came in Mr. F, do you mind if I ask what else you won on today? Just curious and glad to listen to tales of people winning for a change! :D

    • MUZZA 8 years ago

      My “banker treble” posted last night of Mansfield, Cardiff & Bournemouth flew in at 2.75/1 but my long shot of united, cobblers & Leicester plummeted big time! Should have layed that one in hindsight…… :-)

      BTTS was a shocker today only 11 games out of 33 had goals for both teams and only 2 in league 1 which is usually full of goals.

    • Part Time Punter 8 years ago

      i can believe that Mr F, its a good thing is was the early one and nothin else..lets hope we all manage to make back what weve lost, i missed th inplay for BTTS at leeds..gutted!, my morale is still shaken up lol

  27. Dean 8 years ago

    Over the last week or so, I’ve been winning my bets left, right and centre, and I’ve been riding a wave of luck. That wave has now come crashing down. Who would have thought Copenhagen would lose at Silkeborg.

    Things were really looking up as well, as I bet on Volendam to beat Eindhoven on the -1 handicap in addition to landing a treble (Leyton Orient, Bournemouth and Mansfield). I also put a small single on Barnsley to Leicester.

    What really sucks is that, I not only backed Copenhagen to win but I also put a single on them to win minus one goal.

    Unfortunately, football can quite often be unpredictable, and every now and then a result like this occurs and while it’s heartache for the punters, it’s joy for the god damn bookies!

    Never mind, time to look at the fixture list!

    • Mr Fixit 8 years ago

      Dean, football’s always unpredictable as Copenhagen shows but I can’t comment on that game because I didn’t really look it. I went big on my treble because I really fancied it but even then two games were 1-0. Right, off out for a walk with the dog and if I see anyone homeless people I’ll send them to Denmark.

    Yet another shocking day for me and my footy bets,im past trying to reason with te stats,you know things are bad when even your goldfish tries to jump from the tank.

  29. John 8 years ago

    Went for a bet on Daly anytime, not sure what his record is but with Russell out i’d say he’s got a chance

    Wish I didn’t sell my cat now lol
