Pools Rated 5/1 To Pull Off Ram Raid

8 January 2016

We take a look at the best of the odds ahead of Saturday's FA Cup tie at Victoria Park.

It’s perhaps no surprise that Pools are out at 5/1 to defeat Derby County this weekend, with the Championship visitors installed as 8/15 favourites and a price of 3/1 on the tie going to a replay.

Of course, that means that if you fancy Ronnie Moore’s men to cause an FA Cup upset then you could make a killing at the bookies if it does come off!

In 1984, Kevin Dixon netted the Pools winner when the sides last met in the FAC up – you can back a 2-1 win in Saturday’s game at the tempting odds of 18/1 right now with Sky Bet.

A decent bet could be to have Pools to hold Derby to a draw by half time but to go on and win it in the second half; that is available now at a price of 12/1.

Rakish Bingham and Scott Fenwick are both rated Pools’ best shot for the opening goal at 9/1, while Rhys Oates is just behind at 10/1 and Jake Gray is offered up at 11/1.

For a more outside bet you could do worse than have a little flutter on Adam Jackson to hit the net first – he’s up for grabs now at a whopping 50/1!
