Not a lot of football tonight but I couldn't resist it. With some good results at the Weekend and a nice profit from Fulham, we may as well give it ago as Swansea take on boro in what looks to be a good game.

Swansea v Middlesbrough

With Arsenal eliminated from this competition last night Swansea will see this as a great opportunity to win some silverware. (But I suppose they weren't afraid of arsenal after the lesson they taught them last week). I love to watch Swansea when they knock it around the pitch in a sort of Barcelona manner, and on their day they can beat anyone. Tonight they face high flying Middlesbrough from the Championship. I think Boro will give a good account of themselves, but my concern with them is the goals they have been letting in lately.

I backed them at home when they lost to Bristol City and conceded 3. I backed them again on Saturday against Peterborough away. After taking a 2-0 lead there I was counting my money. Next thing I know it's 2-2. Luckily they for me they managed to win 3-2. If they falter tonight then Swansea will punish them. Although Swansea's previous cup matches dont seem to produce many goals, I fancy a couple here tonight.

Back Swansea to Win @ 1.66

Back over 2.5 goals @ 1.74

Back both teams to score @ 1.75



Bastia v Marseille

Hmmmmm.. All 7 of Basita's home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals and they have yet to keep a clean sheet, yet 'Under 2.5 goals' is favoured by the bookies for some reason. Marseille's last 3 games have seen 3 or more goals. I think over 2.5 offers a bit of value in this one.

Back Over 2.5 goals @ 2.1


Both Teams To Score Acca @ 13/2

Swansea v middlesbrough

Bastia v Marseille

Mansfield v Licoln

Mallorca v Seville

Acca @ 13/2


Good luck!

  1. Good Bets Jason and although it could well end up just 1-0 (a decent 10.50) there’s potential here for this one to feature four to seven Goals!! I fancy 2-2,2-3,3-2,3-3 and a Lay of Under 5.50/6.50 Goals @ 1.10,1.03
