Seeley’s Selections – Sunday Live Games
WHAT a weekend of FA Cup shocks it’s been so far and BoyleSports punters must be licking their wounds this morning trying to make sense of it all it and contemplate our next move to get our readies back.
Bristol City v West Ham
Don’t panic…Would be me words of advice as I think we will recoup some of our loses on today’s FA Cup fourth round action and I really can’t see the weekend continuing like it has and normal service is expected to resume today.
The first live match of the day, promises to be a good one in the 2pm lunch-time coming from Ashton Gate between League One side Bristol City and Premier League big-boys West Ham.
This always looked the most likely shock of the round and after yesterday’s amazing scenes many will be tempted by the BoyleSports offer of 3/1 about the home win.. Don’t be.
The Hammers’ are one of only ten Premier League sides left in the competition and they will start to believe that they have a great chance of winning the FA Cup this season and yesterday’s drama only makes me fancy them more stronger at the evens which is available with BoyleSports.
This should be a belter of a Cup tie with goals expected from both sides and I do also like the 8/11 with BoyleSports on both sides scoring in the game.
Five of the last six West Ham games have seen both teams scoring with the only exception last weeks 3-0 home win against Hull who were shocking and could still be playing now and they wouldn’t have scored.
City have an amazing home record with just one defeat all season , but Steve Cotterill’s sides’ main priority is a return to the Championship and out of the two teams they are much more likely to be the ones resting players ahead of some crucial games in League One.
Andy Carroll would be my choice of a first goalscorer in this one at BoyleSports 7/2 he’s a player who scores in bursts and he’s currently in a rich vein of form and I like the England strikers chances to net in this one in what i believe with be in a avery entertaining a 2-1 away win which is my choice at a bargain 7/1 with BoyleSports.
Both Teams To Score @ 8/11
Andy Carroll To Score 1st @ 7/2
West Ham To Win 2-1 @ 7/1
Brighton v Arsenal
IN the 4pm kick-off the FA Cup holders Arsenal travel down to the sea-side to take on Championship side Brighton and again after yesterday’s scenes I’m sure many will be wanting to back the home side…. Don’t fall into that trap.
The Seagulls are 6/1 to add to Arsenal’s name to the list of FA Cup fourth round casualties but they haven’t got the quality to hurt this Arsenal side and although their manager ex Tottenham man Chris Hughton would love nothing more than to put one over the Gunners’ his main and only priority is staying in the Championship next season.
Arsenal are looking good at the moment and I think they will cruise through this one at 1/2 with BoyleSports, although it’s short I can’t see anything other than an away win and I would’t put you lovely people off a nice London double with West Ham.
Arsene Wenger will rest players for sure, but with most Premier League teams, when you rest players it usually makes the team weaker, but not for Gunners; the Frenchman is desperate to give game time to Theo Walcott, Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey and I expect that star studded trio all to feature in this one.
The Gunners’ haven’t conceded in their last three matches and the return of Laurent Koscielny is the key reason for that.
If the French international features today I can’t see Brighton troubling them; instead of the 1/2 for the Arsenal win, a win to nil may attract you at a much more generous 29/20.
Two seasons ago these two met at the same stage of the competition and Arsenal won 3-2 which is 20/1 with BoyleSports to happen again.
Brighton won 3-2 in midweek at home to Ipswich but that was only the first time in their last five matches that more than two goals have been scored in one of their matches.
I can see the Gunners’ producing a dominant and very professional performance here and they just want to get their names into the hat for the draw for the Last 16; I can see them cruising to a 2-0 win which would get my £1 on at 6/1 with BoylesSports.
Aaron Ramsey scored the winning goal for the Gunners’ at Wembley last season and I can see the Welshman getting the opener in this one which will take them a step closer to a return and at 5/1 with BoyleSports thats another bet I like this afternoon.
Arsenal To Win To Nil @ 29/20
Arsenal To Win 2-0 @ 6/1
Aaron Ramsey To Score 1st @ 5/1
