Last night’s four FA Cup matches failed to really catch fire and there’s little to get excited about in today’s ties.

Teams at 1/2, 2/5 and 1/10 don’t offer much value for punters so the matches look best avoided until this evening when Fulham host Newcastle live on ITV4.

The Cottagers were edged out of the EFL Cup at the semi-final stage by Liverpool in midweek but can bounce back against the Magpies who have suffered more than their fair share of travel sickness this term.

Eddie Howe’s men have just five points to show for their 10 road trips in the Premier League. They’re only five points better off than Fulham in the table and on paper don’t deserve to be 5/4 favourites to win at Craven Cottage. That means a bit of value can be found in the 2/1 to win and in the 11/10 Draw No Bet market should it go to a replay.

In League 1, Blackpool look a good thing at 7/10 against poor travellers Charlton. The Addicks have won just one of 13 on the road and are winless in almost two months. Contrast that with the Seasiders who’s 10 wins at home is a league high.

Wigan are another side who’ve performed well at home. They’ve suffered an eight point deduction but Shaun Maloney has them mid table and looking up. Stevenage will provide a stern test but the Latics are unbeaten in five in the league (W3 D2) and could be worth a punt at 11/5.

Without wishing to sound like a broken record, we’ll be on Celtic corners again today. We’ve cashed in as the Hoops have racked up an average of 10.32 per game in the Premiership.

First half corners at home are averaging 5.82 and they should see plenty of action in the final third against struggling Ross County today.

Five or more in the first 45 pays 4/5, six or more pays 6/4 and seven or more is 11/4.

Steven Naismith’s Hearts incurred the wrath of home fans at half-time against Dundee in midweek but they turned things around in the second half, coming from 2-down to win 3-2.

That sets them up nicely for today’s visit of Aberdeen who still look unconvincing under Barry Robson. They were fortunate to leave Perth with a point in midweek and defeat today at Tynecastle will pile pressure back on the Dons gaffer.

Aberdeen haven’t won in Gorgie since 2017 so the Jambos at 11/10 are the pick in this one.

Also in the Scottish top flight there’ll be plenty of support for Kilmarnock at 19/20 against an unreliable Hibernian. Derek McInnes has things motoring at Killie, especially at Rugby Park where they’ve won more home points (21 from 33 available) than anyone outside of Celtic and Rangers.

The Hibees were insipid in midweek against Rangers, scraped past Forfar in the Cup last week and had won just one win five prior to that.

Dundee could be a touch at Livingston who haven’t won in the league since early October, 13 games ago. They’ve scored just four goals in that time but they did record a potentially morale-boosting 2-1 win over Championship side Raith Rovers last weekend.

The Dark Blues have impressed under Tony Docherty this season. They’ve already won at the Toni Macaroni and can land the spoils again at 17/10.

In the Championship, Dundee Utd and Morton make up an even money double against Dunfermline and Arbroath respectively but out of sorts Raith Rovers are best avoided at 7/10 against Inverness.

    Spartans v Clyde.
    Being a long suffering clyde fan we are starting to turn a corner a bit (hopefully), with Ian McCall in as manager and starting to get a tune out the players…….4 decent signings in, including Jordan Allan from Falkirk for rest of season. He scored goals for us in the league above last season, hence move to Falkirk, but not had a chance there. Based on the above upturn in form recently, decent manager and decent signings in, we look ridiculously overpriced at 7/2 today, with double chance for anyone cautious at 23/20.

    Clyde win 7/2 Nap and Nb******
    Clyde minus 1 – 10/1 Longshot
    Clyde minus 2 – 22/1 Hail Mary shot.

    Good luck all 😊
