The FA Cup fixtures mean that this weekend’s Sunday fixture list is more substantial than we’re accustomed to and we’re looking to take advantage with this 9/2 BTTS treble at Ladbrokes.
We’ve combined three games from the FA Cup and Premier League to produce these tips and are optimistic that these teams can provide a profitable afternoon. With Christmas just around the corner, those extra pounds would certainly come in handy.
West Ham United V Swansea City
The afternoon’s Premier League action begins at the Boleyn Ground as two of the top flights surprise packages collide in a crucial encounter.
Sam Allardyce and Garry Monk have both worked wonders this season and the two sets of supporters will be equally pleased with their early season standing. Three points in this clash would set the winner up superbly as we enter the hectic Christmas period and each will be looking to their attacking stars to secure another triumph here.
Goals are flowing far more frequently than usual for these rivals, with West Ham boasting 23 and Swansea registering 19 after 14 fixtures. However, neither have kept too many clean sheets and we’re anticipating another attack-minded approach contest at Upton Park.
The Hammers are firm favourites for this coupon in 2014/15 as 11 of their 15 competitive matches have ended in BTTS winners. There is no reason to think that trend will end against the Jacks.

Wycombe Wanderers V AFC Wimbledon
Goals have been a common feature for both Wycombe and Wimbledon this season and we’re expecting that theme to continue as the League Two rivals meet in this key FA Cup clash at Adams Park.
Gareth Ainsworth’s men are enjoying a phenomenal campaign and could well be set for promotion. A third round glamour tie would really provide the icing on the cake and the Chairboys will certainly fancy their chances. However, despite their superb form, the League Two leaders have conceded more often than not with each of their past seven ending in BTTS winners.
Likewise, Wimbledon tend to score and concede. Their league record reads 24/27 after 19 league fixtures and the nature of this cup tie should ensure that both sides go for goals again here.
The prize on offer could be huge for either club and both sets of players will be highly motivated ahead of Sunday’s show. Back both teams to score.
BTTS Yes @ 5/6 with Ladbrokes
Colchester United V Peterborough United
Our final selection comes from the later FA Cup kick-off as League One rivals Colchester and Peterborough do battle to join the big boys in round three.
Both sides have endured a difficult spell in the league, with each entering this encounter having picked up just one point from the last available 15. Therefore, the cup will come as a welcome distraction with Tony Humes and Darren Ferguson hoping to use it as the perfect outlet to get their respective teams back on track.
These rivals have already met once at the Colchester Community Stadium once this season, with Posh claiming a 3-1 away win and the visitors will be hopeful of picking up a similar scoreline here.
Peterborough have to enter this clash as the slight favourites and we would be surprised if they fail to find the net. However, the hosts will be looking to the in-form Freddy Sears for inspiration and should also hit the target at some stage.
