Following the Premier League action that saw superb football take place, we now focus our attention on the FA Cup 1/32 finals. UK gambling news reports that a total of 7 games will be played on Tuesday and Wednesday evening, so make sure to tune in watch these amazing games.

• Bristol City looking to easily overcome Doncaster
• Everton face a challenge against West Ham
• Wolves favorite against Fulham

Bristol City will face Doncaster and the hosts will do everything in their power to overcome their opponents and proceed to the next round. Chesterfield will go up against Scunthorpe at home, so they will have home field advantage to instill their own football philosophy. West Ham and Everton will play against one another in London, while the Wolves will play against Fulham at home.

Bristol City vs Doncaster and Chesterfield vs Scunthorpe

Bristol City and Doncaster are both currently in the playing in League One, where the former is top of the table while the latter is struggling in 14th position. Bristol City have managed to record 9 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss at home, whereas the visiting sides have only managed to record 6 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses while playing on the road.

 That is why online sportsbooks in The UK have put all of their confidence in the hosts when it comes to the upcoming game. Bet365 has given Bristol City high chances of success 1.85 (17/20), while Doncaster remain outsiders 4.75 (15/4). A tie between the two has been set at 3.60 (13/5), although considering the hosts’ superiority that event is not very likely.

Chesterfield will play against Scunthorpe at home and looking at their record on their own ground (6 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses), they should emerge as the winners of this encounter. Unlike the hosts who are in 7th place in League One, Scunthorpe is struggling in 17th position with a total of 29 points.

The visitor’s away record stands at 4 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses, stats that are rather uncertain and won’t help them as they go up against a team that carries 6 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses while playing at home. Bet365 has identified Chesterfield as the favorites 1.75 (3/4), whereas a draw for the match stands at a high 4.00 (3/1). Should Scunthorpe manage to pull off a win then that would be quite something as their current chances are limited 5.00 (4/1).

West Ham vs Everton and Wolverhampton vs Fulham

West Ham have performed quite splendidly this season and have managed to surprise many as they now claim 7th place in the Premier League. At home they have notched 6 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses, which should definitely help them as they will next host Everton, a team that has only recorded 2 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses while playing on the road.

However, the FA Cup is a different competition from the Premier League where the weaker sides are known to surprise at times. Bet365 has earmarked West Ham to seal a win 2.37 (11/8), however Everton, which is composed of several promising players, is not quite hopeless. They have been assigned odds of 3.10 (21/10), while a tie between the two has been set at 3.50 (5/2).

Fulham will square off against Wolverhampton away where they will aim to beat their opponents to seal their place in the next phase of the competition. Both of these sides are now playing in the Championship which has seen the Wolves clinch 8th place with 40 points whereas the club from London has managed to capture 18th position with 28 points.

The hosts have a record of 6 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses at home, while the visiting team has recorded 3 wins, 2 draws and 8 losses while playing away from home. As per UK gambling laws, Bet365 offer many betting options and for this game they have outlined the Wolves as the favorites 1.90 (10/11). Fulham are outsiders with their odds being 4.33 (10/3), while a draw stands at 3.75 (11/4).
