The FA Cup Third Round replays continue on Wednesday and the pick of the matches looks to be the game selected by ITV1 to be televised, Wolves v Birmingham. The first game between the local rivals was a bit of a bore, does ValueChecker think it will be the same again on Wednesday night?

Wolves have clearly been popular in this match as they have been picked up by the ValueChecker Steamers tool which highlights selections that are shortening in price. The average change in odds for Wolves has been 2.07 into 2.01 and that represents a 5.2% drop in odds, clearly punters on ValueChecker are thinking that the bookies have underestimated Wolves in this match.

Wolves could be a good bet to win this match by a one goal margin according to the Wolves ValueChecker wikis. Wolves may be in a different division to Birmingham but there doesn’t look a great deal between the teams based on last week’s match and last season 8 of Wolves’ 11 league wins were by a one goal margin whilst the season before it was 7 out of 9.

As for the Birmingham ValueChecker wikis, they seem to point towards a loss for Birmingham who often struggle away against Premiership opposition. Birmingham were in the Premiership just a season ago and in that season they won just two away games, those wins coming against the other two relegated sides West Ham and Blackpool. Birmingham may be incapable of beating a Premiership quality team away from home.

Meanwhile in the other FA Cup replay, Wrexham v Brighton, there look to be several ValueChecker Value Bets. Wrexham appear to be one of the value bets of the day, they should be closer to 1.69 than the current odds of 3.04 according to ValueChecker. Meanwhile under 2.5 goals also looks to be a value bet, based on a statistical analysis of previous results ValueChecker thinks that unders should be 1.75 not 1.78.
