Tuesday and Wednesday’s football matches this week are a mix of Premier League games and FA Cup replays. Wolves host Shrewsbury at Molineux on Tuesday night in the FA Cup, whilst Brighton head to the Hawthorns on Wednesday night to try and beat West Brom at the second attempt to try and book their place in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
There’s also Premier League action on Wednesday night as Manchester City have the chance to pile pressure on league leaders Liverpool by beating Merseyside’s second-best side Everton at Goodison Park.
Wolves vs Shrewsbury (Tuesday 7.45)
A 93rd-minute goal from Wolves denied Shrewsbury booking their place in the fifth round of the FA Cup last time in a match in which Shrewsbury had taken a 2-0 lead in the 71st minute at their New Meadow Stadium. The bookies don’t expect Wolves to give The Shrews a second chance of success though and Wolves are a best-priced 2/9 to progress to the next round here.
A 3-0 defeat to Luton in their last match doesn’t bode well for Shrewsbury either, but they have drawn four and won one of their last five matches on their travels, be it against much lesser opposition.

Wolves are also enjoying one of their best runs of the season on the Premier League and, after a long spell of games that produced less than 2.5 goals, they’ve beaten Leicester 4-3, West Ham 3-0, and Everton 3-0 in their last three Premier League Games.
Shrewsbury will surely come here and have a go too and, with three of their last five games producing more than 3.5 goals, this replay could easily have at least four goals in it just like the first match.

West Brom vs Brighton (Wednesday 8.05)
Despite a 3-2 defeat by Middlesbrough at The Hawthorns on Saturday, West Brom’s home games aren’t renowned for producing many goals and their previous four home matches finished 1-1, 1-0, 1-1, and 2-0.
A similarly defensive set up against a Brighton side, that also sets out to keep things tight, could mean that this is a game that could be decided by an odd goal. That’s further evidenced by the 0-0 score-line from the game at Brighton and it could be worth sticking to less than 2.5 goals, with the bookies betting around 8/11.

Everton vs Manchester City (Wednesday 7.45)
Goodison Park hasn’t always been the happiest of hunting grounds for Manchester City, whilst Everton also took a point of City at The Etihad last season. However, Pep Guardiola is a quick learner and he seems to have worked out to beat Everton with two 3-1 wins in their last two confrontations.
Everton are also on the ropes a bit after losing three of their last four games, including their 3-1 home defeat against Wolves at the weekend. Meanwhile, the City bandwagon quickly gathered momentum again with a 3-1 win against Arsenal after their previous shock 2-1 defeat at Newcastle.
City are expected to win, but odds of around 1/3 make little appeal. So, with so many recent 3-1 score-lines in this preview, City to win 3-1 at double-figure odds looks worth a bet.
