It's finally here! The third round of the FA Cup where the bigger teams in England joins the 146-year cup that involves more than 100 clubs in England. To celebrate this, we have an amazing three team parlay to make sure you make some huge money on this magical cup weekend.
Newcastle United F.C. vs Birmingham City F.C. - (-118)
Newcastle goes to Birmingham to try to emulate their last meeting as they won 4-0. Newcastle, who haven't have a trophy since 1955, will take this competition seriously. With reports showing that players like DeAndre Yedlin, Ayoze Pérez, and Matt Ritchie all expected to play, they are going with skillful, fast players who also have experience not just in cup competitions (as we saw in the League Cup this year). Also these players have experience playing in the Premier League which will help them deal with the pressures of being the favorite even though away from home. I think it will be closer than 4-0, but I still think Newcastle will win comfortably.
Newcastle Predicted XI:
Sels, Lazaar, Clark, Lascelles, Yedlin, Colback, Hayden, Gouffran, Perez, Ritchie, Mitrovic
Birmingham Predicted XI:
Legzdins, Caddis, Shotton, Spector, Cleary, Grounds, Tesche, Davis, Brown, Jutkiewicz, Adams
Prediction: 2-0 Newcastle
Southampton F.C. vs Norwich City F.C. - (+120)
Southampton is a team that needs a win, Not just for the fact that they have a shot at winning a cup but for moral. It's been a tough week for Southampton as their captain and hero José Fonte handed in a transfer request. Southampton now goes to last years 19th place team in the Premier League who sold them their best player, Nathan Redmond. Norwich is having a rough year, they are in ninth place and seem a long shot to even make the Premier League playoff let alone a secure automatic promotion. Southampton manager Claude Puel even admitted this is their most important week as they have this match then a huge EFL Semi Final match against Liverpool. With how serious the Southampton manager will take this game, they will win.

Prediction: 1-0 Southampton
West Bromwich Albion F.C. vs Derby County F.C. - (-126)
West Bromwich Albion is having an amazing season as they are eighth place in the Premier League as Tony Pulis has found the perfect balance of his defensive minded tactics and in form players like Salomón Rondón, Nacer Chadli, and Matt Phillips. Derby is in seventh place which is impressive, but this will go down to how good West Brom is. They have been amazing and also, have made me a lot of money this year betting on them which is why I am going with a close win over West Brom.
West Brom Predicted XI:
Myhil, Nyom, McAuley, Olsson, Galloway, Yacob, Gardner, Leko, Morrison, McClean, Robson-Kanu
Derby County: Could Not Find Team News
Prediction: 2-0 WBA
