Devil's Wager FA Cup Special - Betting guide to Manchester United vs Everton

As both managers go into the match under the cosh, this won't be a friendly tie in a must win game to potentially keep them in the hot seat for another season. Van Gaal faces up to the task ahead, with top four and the FA cup to be delivered to the trophy cabinet to create any justification for seeing out his contract instead of succumbing to the sack many are already calling for. However bad things look for Manchester United, the blue side of Liverpool seem to have to done one better, Martinez struggling to cope with the ever going pressure at Goodison.

In what is a contrasting week for United fans, seeing their team record 10 shots on target against Crystal Palace in their 2-0 win they play against a weakened Everton side without two key defenders, Jagielka due to injury has now returned to the starting 11, though medically should not be playing, and Funes Mori suspended. Although part of a defence who conceded four at Anfield and took 13 shots on Howard's goal failing to record even one.

Everton have progressed from six of their last seven FA Cup semi-finals, the exception being their last appearance at this stage in 2012 v Liverpool. They have needed extra time or penalties to make the final in four of those six progressions and with the devils being poor in front of goal, and a habit of dragging games out, they could have a problem.  But United won 3-0 at Goodison back in October and 1-0 at Old Trafford at the start of this month and it's hard to see anything other than a third of the season. At 8/15 United qualifying would go straight in the accumulator, we can't see past a trudge display from both sides but United edge it with recent form.

On to game outcomes and specials which are always a personal favourite of mine, with a winner which I staked as well against palace (Under 2.5 goals and Manchester United to win 11/5) what better way to start. Cup games are always hard to call, and what can be perceived as a game of goals can turn out a drab draw all the way through to penalties. The Toffees are still yet to concede a goal in their cup run, and United struggling in front of goal all season I think the same bet is completely plausible. At 3/1 the value is definitely worth the punt, and compared to the premier league I won’t be held responsible in this mad cup, haha. As a special, Manchester United to win to nil is 21/10, shorter than my previous tips, but alongside another clean sheet against Palace, it won’t be hard to see if the devils start well.

Now the line ups are out, goalscorer bets seem the next port of call, with two favourites in my eyes. Rooney and Fellaini, though odd shouts they may see, both have something to prove and are also facing both a team of the past. Rooney has the FA cup in his eye line, the medal has evaded him throughout his entire career and his anytime odds are 9/4. Fellaini would like to show how far he has come, and likes to pop up with an odd goal albeit off his shoulder of shin, you can find the giant at 9/2 anytime also!

A little less variety in this weeks betting guide, but with the cup game calling who knows what can happen. Here are my three BOTD (Bets of The Day).

Bet 1: Manchester United to score in both halves at 2/1

Bet 2: Anthony Martial to score Anytime and Manchester United to win 2-1 at 13/1

Bet 3: Manchester United to win in extra time at 11/1
