Tuesday 06 March 2012 at 11:14
Chelsea begin life after AVB today when they take on Birmingham in an FA Cup replay and with the winner taking on Leicester at home in the FA Cup Quarter Finals both teams will fancy their chances for a Wembley appearance this season. Roberto Di Matteo takes the hot seat for this match and he will be looking to display his credentials to take on the job full time.
Chelsea Backed To Make Winning Start For Roberto Di Matteo
At the time of writing almost three quarters of OLBG Tipsters have gone for the away side here in the OLBG Tipster Competition. Chelsea are fairly generous odds it seems at 7/10 with BetVictor as the bookies have had to shorten the odds on the away side across the board and currently 72.4% of OLBG Tipsters have gone for Chelsea to win this match and progress to the quarter finals. Birmingham have only lost once at home in the league this season so it won’t be easy and 17.2% of tipsters are going for a shock Birmingham win and Birmingham are 9/2 with William Hill and Ladbrokes to get this game wrapped up in 90 minutes at St Andrews. The draw would be a result neither side would particularly want as it means extra time and not many of the OLBG Tipsters want that either as just 10.3% of tipsters have backed that outcome at 3/1 with Bet365.
Big Priced Outcomes Proving Popular On OLBG
The correct score tips have been pretty popular ahead of this match and it seems punters think this will be a high scoring match as 3-2 wins for either team have received the most tips so far. Both of those outcomes have had 27.3% of tips in their favour and the bigger priced outcome from those is 3-2 to Birmingham at 66/1 with BetVictor and Stan James whilst the 3-2 win for Chelsea can be backed at 33/1 with William Hill. The half time/full time betting has also proved popular with OLBG Tipsters and the most popular outcome in this market is another big priced outcome with Birmingham/Chelsea the most tipped at odds of 28/1 with Sportingbet. At the time of writing a third of tips in that market have gone on that outcome and it may just offer a bit of value ahead of the match which will be shown live on ITV1.
