The weekend domestic football action gets underway tonight with a quality top-six Championship encounter between sixth place Millwall and third place Fulham at the Den. Both teams are in form and there’s plenty at stake in terms of promotion with Millwall currently in the play-off hunt in sixth place, a point ahead of Derby who have a game in hand, and Fulham are a point behind second place Cardiff and the remaining automatic promotion place. A win for either team would be a big boost in terms of qualifying for the play off’s or automatic promotion as it would put pressure on Derby and Cardiff respectively. From a betting perspective it could play to oppose Millwall on the exchanges as Millwall are unbeaten in their last seventeen matches and Fulham are unbeaten in their last 21 overall. If you are looking for a better return, backing the Match Result Double the Draw and Under 2.5 Goals should go close to returning a profit.
Saturday’s domestic football action features a couple of Premier League games, a full set of Championship and League One and Two games and the first FA Cup semi-final at Wembley between Manchester United and Spurs at 5.15pm. The promotion and relegation battles in the Championship and League One and Two continues to heat up which should guarantee plenty of excitement and drama. From a betting perspective in League One, Charlton and Plymouth are playing well enough to beat Portsmouth and Northampton respectively tomorrow.
Spurs won the last three home Premier League fixtures against Man Utd 2-0, 2-1 and 3-0 and there’s no reason why they can’t repeat that form again today in the FA Cup given their form and more importantly they have home advantage again with Wembley being their temporary home.
