Fresh from a giant-slaying that made David’s battle with Goliath look like a well-matched battle of equals, Bradford host Sunderland in the FA Cup.
The Bantams came from two goals down to beat Premier League champions-elect Chelsea 4-2 at Stamford Bridge in the last round, and are a worthy bet to defeat the Black Cats too.
Bradford are 21/10 to beat Sunderland, with the visitors priced at 5/4 and the draw 23/10.
The hosts have become a scourge of Premier League opposition in cup competitions over recent seasons, besting three sides from the top flight, including Arsenal, en route to the League Cup final in 2013.
This term they have smashed their way through the first four rounds of the FA Cup, scoring 17 times in five matches including the replay they played against Millwall.
Phil Parkinson’s side are also in spectacular form in all competitions, losing just twice in their past 17 outings.
New bwin customers should be aware that the £30 free bet awaiting you would yield a £63 profit if used to back Bradford and the Bantams pulled off another famous victory.
It’s also worth noting that while Sunderland have generally done well in cups under Gus Poyet, they have a poor away record in the FA Cup.
Their 3-1 win over Fulham in the last round was their first road victory in England’s premier cup competition since 2012.
If you don’t fancy the risk of backing an upset, a safer bet is to lump on the 21/20 that there is over 2.5 goals in the match.
Six of Bradford’s last eight games have gone over that mark, as have all of their five FA Cup ties this term, generally thanks to the Bantams’ prolificacy.
Meanwhile, although the Black Cats have been a tad goal-shy in front of their own fans, three of Sunderland’s past four away matches have seen at least three goals.
