OLBG member Edinho has predicted a draw in the top Championship match of Saturday between Brentford and Derby.
"Brentford have lost their last two matches to higher opposition, Derby who are just in the play offs, are winless in eight league matches but have only lost three from fifteen on the road so a draw is a real possibility here between two sides out of form".
Its the FA Cup this weekend and we have all the matches available to tip on. Tottenham take on Crystal Palace and monkeytennis highlights Tottenham's great form in comparison to Crystal Palaces's dismal form. "Spurs have been tremendously consistent this season, even after playing on Thursdays, and it would be a big shock if they were to lose this. They were the deserved winners less than a month ago against Palace in the PL and also beat the visitors 1-0 at home in September.
Pochettino's side have gone relatively under the radar this season thanks to Leicester's endeavours and had won 7 games in a row in all competitions until Fiorentina's deflected equaliser on Thursday. Compare that run to Palace who have managed to pick up just 1 point in their last 6 games against PL opposition and there can surely only be one winner - especially when you consider that run includes losses to Villa, Bournemouth and Watford who are hardly in great form themselves".
