The world’s oldest association football competition returns to our screens this weekend, with the FA Cup reaching the quarter-final stages, and it will have punters all over the country looking for the chance to make some big money with an upset.
However, whilst we have seen out fair share of giant killings this season, now we’re into the latter stages of the competition, with just eight sides left looking to book their place at Wembley Stadium, it looks very unlikely that results will go against the odds this weekend.
Therefore, it may be beneficial to your bank balance to look deeper into the options of who and what you can back with your pocket money this weekend.
Individual bets on goalscorers are always a win for the canny punters out there and many will be looking at the Arsenal front men, when they take on non-league Lincoln City at The Emirates, to make them some quick money.
However, there is an even more sure-fire way to turn a profit on goalscorers this weekend, and he’s just across north London.
Tottenham striker Harry Kane has been in sublime form this season, especially since the turn of the year. The England international is leading the Premier League top scoring charts with 19, after his brace against Everton last weekend.
That may be more than enough for many to back him, at a generous 11/5, to open the scoring against Millwall at the Lane this weekend, however, if you are still not convinced, his stats this calendar year will have you running to the bookies with cash in hand.
The 23-year-old has featured in 12 games in 2017, bagging 14 goals and three hat-tricks, one of which was against Fulham in the FA Cup fifth round
Still not enough? Well, just to tip you over the edge, in every game Kane has scored in 2017, he has been the one to open the scoring. Taking all that in, you would be foolish not to get the “one season wonder” on to continue that trend this weekend.
