MyBetBuddy’s EFL expert takes a look through the weekend’s FA Cup fixtures and picks out his five best bets.
An all League Two clash sees high flying Forest Green take on struggling Carlisle. Forest Green have been far superior than Carlisle in the league this season and I expect this to continue on Saturday.
There are 16 points in the league table between second placed FGR and fourth bottom Carlisle which shows a real difference in quality.
Burton have scored more away goals than any other top four division club in 2019. They are good on the road which they showed in midweek when they beat Sunderland 2-1 at the Stadium of Light.
Oldham are lingering towards the bottom of the League Two table. They will not be able to match Burton in terms of quality.
Crawley have been in terrible form in League Two. They have only won once in their last nine games.
Fleetwood have started strongly in League One and are outside of the play-offs on goal difference with a game in hand. A top League One team against a poor League Two team should be fairly conclusive.
Exeter have been very strong in League Two this campaign. They are one place outside the automatic promotion places and are on a five game unbeaten run in all competitions.
Hartlepool are mid-table in the National League after a fairly decent start to the season. They may struggle against a strong side in the division above.
These two teams are fairly evenly matched so calling a result can be difficult.
However, with both sides lacking league form somewhat recently then I expect them to go for it in this game. I can see plenty of goals in this one.
