There is a selection of FA Cup Third Round replays for us to bet on this week on ValueChecker and one of the most interesting ties could be Leicester v Nottingham Forest. The fact that both teams are plying their trade in the Championship means the ValueChecker Wikis could be particularly insightful for this fixture.

According to the Leicester ValueChecker wikis there could be some value in backing this game to be all square at half time. Last season Leicester’s most common half time result was a draw and the same wiki also highlights a good in running bet if Leicester happen to be winning at half time. Last season Leicester won 12 of the 14 matches they were winning at half time. Meanwhile this season almost three quarters of Leicester’s goals have come at home so we could see plenty of goals from the home side.

As for the Nottingham Forest ValueChecker wikis, they show that there could be a good in running bet late on in this match. Last season Nottingham Forest had a great record in the last fifteen minutes of their matches, scoring 19 and conceding just 6. If the game is close late on it could be a good time to get on Forest. Another in running pointer comes midway through the first half, in the first quarter of this season Forest didn’t score once in the league between the 16th minute and the 30th minute.

In another FA Cup Third Round replay on Tuesday evening there is an opportunity to bet on the day’s best value bet according the ValueChecker Value Bets system. These value bets are determined by a statistical analysis of previous results and clearly QPR’s poor home record is playing a large role in this as MK Dons are apparently the best value bet on Tuesday, their current odds of 4.67 should be closer to 1.42 according to ValueChecker and that pick has been assigned a value rating of 0.64.
