Leagues Tipped:

Having delivered a clean sweep of winners in his featured column on Saturday, SlipsTips is back to share two angles of attack involving two of Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final ties.

Crystal Palace vs Everton (Sunday, 12:30)

Crystal Palace and Everton take a break from their Premier League schedule on Sunday lunchtime when the pair lock horns at Selhurst Park in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

The two teams will be buoyed by their league results last time out, with the Eagles earning a hard-fought 0-0 draw against Manchester City, whilst the 10-man Toffees claimed a vital 1-0 victory over Newcastle.

With both sides now battling it out to book their place at Wembley, I was pleasantly surprised to see Over 3.5 Match Cards priced up at 13/10 (UniBet).

This is set to be a momentous occasion in front of a raucous Selhurst Park crowd and that should contribute to a keenly-contested cup tie in South London.

Patrick Viera’s side are averaging a shade under two cards per home game in the Premier League this season, while the visitors overall figure sits at 2.11 – a tally only marginally topped by three other sides in the top-flight.

Referee Stuart Attwell has been selected to take charge of this last-eight showdown, with the top-flight whistler averaging 3.4 cards per Premier League game this season so far.

Overall, Atwell has flashed four or more cards in 10 of the 21 (47.6%) games he has taken charge of across competitions this term , yet the odds imply a 43.5% chance of the same bet copping in this capital clash..

It’s also worth noting that six of the Blues’ last nine Premier League games have featured four or more or match bookings and that only adds to the appeal of supporting the aforementioned 13/10 (UniBet) play at Selhurst Park on Sunday.

Southampton vs Manchester City  (Sunday, 15:00)

With a spot in the semi-finals of the FA Cup on the line, Southampton and Manchester City meet in the quarter-final stage at St Mary’s on Sunday afternoon.

Despite losing each of their last three league games, the Saints have enjoyed a solid campaign, currently sitting in 10th position in the Premier League, while league leaders City will be feeling the heat, with Liverpool now just one point behind them.

Southampton have become something of a bogey team for Man City this season, having drawn twice with them already, and as such, getting the visitors onside at a general 1/3 looks best avoided in favour of siding with over three Asian cards at even-money (Bet 365).

This selection would see us paid out if four or more cards are awarded, with our stake returned if exactly three cards are dished out.

Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side, who could see this as an all-or-nothing affair, have averaged 1.86 cards per game this term, while the Citizens' tally sits at a joint league-low 1.21 per 90 minutes.

However, it's  worth noting that experienced Premier League referee Mike Dean has been selected to take charge of this last-eight encounter, an appointment that immediately had my eyes drawn to the card markets.

Whilst the Wirral-born whistler is averaging just 3.42 cards per-game in the Premier League this term, he has flashed four or more cards in 14/ 21 (66.6%) games he has taken charge of across all competitions this season so far.

With that in mind, coupled with the added insurance of the wager providing a push if there are only three cards shown, siding with over three Asian cards on Sunday stands out at a value even-money (Bet 365).

  • Over 3 Asian Cards – 1/1 (Bet 365)
