MyBetBuddy’s resident EFL expert takes a look through the weekend’s FA Cup matches and picks his five best bets.
Dulwich are currently mid table in the National League South but they should not be phased by the visit of League Two Carlisle. The Cumbrians have been very poor in the league this season and are flirting with the relegation places.
Dulwich will be up for the challenge of taking on EFL opposition and with the home crowd behind them, they should score. The league quality which Carlisle have will make them a threat though. It would not be surprising if Dulwich won this but both teams should score at least.
Maidenhead have a real chance of causing an upset here against League One Rotherham. The National League side will be up for the cup with a big crowd expected at York Road.
Maidenhead have scored 23 times in the National League this season so will be confident they can find the net against their League One opponents.
Solihull should have no problem in securing a result against the National League South side. Solihull have won four of their last five league games which sees them sit in the National League play-off places.
Oxford City are only four points above the relegation zone in the National League South and they will not be expecting to win against an in form Solihull.
League One high flyers Posh travel to League Two strugglers Stevenage. The away side’s attacking power should be enough to help them through this one. Mo Eisa, Ivan Toney and Marcus Maddison have combined for 33 goals by themselves this season.
Stevenage are currently only out of the League Two relegation places on goal difference so will struggle to match the quality of the away side.
Gareth Ainsworth’s Wycombe have progressed to the third round in this competition in three of the last four seasons. Ainsworth has already said that he is naming the strongest possible lineup for the League One promotion challengers.
Tranmere are struggling in League One and may see the cup as an unnecessary distraction to their survival push. Wycombe should be too strong here.
