The Exchange team get stuck into FA Cup semis and Chelsea clash

| 17.04.2015

Wembley, Wembley, we’re the famous {INSERT TEAM NAME HERE} and we’re going to Wembley!

We love the FA Cup and with it being semi-final weekend we take a look through the Exchange to pick up a couple of trades we see real value in.

Arsenal v Reading (Sat 17:20 – BBC One)

We expect goals as these two teams have scored 40 goals in the eight games they’ve faced each other. With Arsenal (1.26) currently flying in the league and Reading (16.1) struggling in the Championship we expect more of the same…..GOALS.

We expect a lot of activity in the correct scores and over/under market backing high scores, so therefore there will be real value in laying against them.

With it being a semi-final we expect Reading to set up defensively and make it difficult for Arsenal.

*Recommended Trade: Lay Over 3.5 goals at 2.7 or Lay Arsenal to win 3-1 at 14.1. Also with Ramsey getting back in with the goals, backing last season’s FA Cup final hero at 5.5 to open up the scoring is very tempting

Aston Villa v Liverpool (Sun 15:00 – BT Sport 1)

The following day an Aston Villa (6.2) side that has been laying waste to all in their way in the FA Cup take on Liverpool, who have slightly struggled to get to this stage, having to rely on a couple of replay’s.

After two defeats it to their rivals in the league it seems Liverpool (1.63) have got out their slump at the right stage just in time for this important match in their season.

However, the return of Benteke’s form will cause Liverpool to have concerns as he has 4 goals in 5 games against them. We think Tim Sherwood has done wonders in getting the best out of his star striker and can see him getting a goal in this game (3.2 to score anytime).

*Recommended Trade: With the pace in the Villa side we can see them getting a goal so Lay No at 2.08 for both teams to score.


It’s not all about the FA Cup action this weekend as there is also seven Premier League matches taking place with all eyes on the clash between Chelsea and Manchester United.

Chelsea v Man United (Sat 17:30 – Sky Sport 1)

A late Fabregas winner against QPR eased any nerves that Chelsea (2.04) may have but they face a Man Utd (4.0) side that have been on the rampage of late.

The visitors have won their last six in the league beating the likes of Man City, Liverpool and Tottenham along the way. Taking a look a look at the value and recent results, the value bet sides with United

*Recommended Trade: There’s great value in Backing a Draw/Draw at 5.4 but if you look at the value and taking into consideration their recent form you can’t argue against backing Man United
