The FA Cup fifth round is upon us – what better occasion for the news.bwin.com tipsters to unleash their three finest anytime scorer bets of the weekend…
Saido Berahino to score v West Ham @ 2/1
Visiting hitman Diafra Sakho is the shortest-priced scoring candidate in bwin’s betting on the fixture, yet the Hammers have been shut out in half of their last six away games, bagging once in the remaining three.
Baggy Berahino, on the other hand, has found the net against the Irons on both occasions they have paid the Hawthorns a visit since he broke into the side.
The England Under-21 ace has the kernel of a profitable understanding with Brown Ideye and, with his help, can net for the second game running.
Dwight Gayle to score v Liverpool @ 13/4
So strongly are Brendan Rodgers’ side expected to avenge their two Selhurst Park undoings at the hands of Crystal Palace that the man who proved their nemesis on both occasions can be backed to net at a price to the north of 3/1.
Liverpool are out on their own as the favourite opponents of Gayle’s career – the former Peterborough United man has struck four times against them across three encounters, including at least one in each meeting.
The Merseyside outfit have tightened up defensively in the league since their 3-1 loss in south-east London last October.
However, they’ve conceded in 13 of their 14 matches outside of the league this term including all seven away from Anfield – sign up for a new account at bwin.com and claim a £30 free bet that cops a £97.50 profit if Liverpool’s Gayle jinx continues.
Leonardo Ulloa to score v Aston Villa @ 9/5
The Argentine striker’s anytime goal odds look like some way to make a living given his abject opponents and phenomenal scoring record in the FA Cup.
Ulloa has found the net on every occasion in which he has played in the competition since arriving in England, a run that stretches to five games.
Moreover he’s no stranger to silencing the dwindling Villa Park crowds, having struck 13 minutes into his only previous visit to the second-city stadium.
