Northampton play Derby in the FA Cup fourth round tonight and our tipster has picked out three betting tips for the match. See our tips below or bet on one of the price boosts for the match that are also shown below.
Northampton have won four of their last five matches going into this game.
They beat Burton 4-2 away from home in the third round.
Derby have an identical record – four wins and a draw in their last five.
They beat Premier League Crystal Palace in the last round, winning 1-0 away from home.
The first bet for this match tonight is going to be both teams to score, and it’s one you should add into any BTTS accumulator you place on tonight’s games as the odds are quite short.
Northampton have seen both teams score in their last four matches now and at home, they’ve scored in their last nine in all competitions. They’re currently in sixth place in the League Two table and well in line for a play-off place at the least. The FA Cup might not be the most welcome of distractions for them at the moment but with home advantage, they’ll see this as a good chance to progress into round five.
Derby are down in 16th in the Championship but results are improving and the stats for tonight’s BTTS bet look promising. They’ve finally started scoring away from home after a remarkable run of six games without a goal on the road. Wayne Rooney’s addition to the squad makes both teams to score even more likely here.
This will not be an easy game for Derby and we could see the first shock of the fourth round. They have only averaged 1.03 goals so far this season but that includes a terrible start to the campaign when they were flirting with relegation only a few weeks ago. Since then though, things are looking up and Phillip Cocu is starting to turn Derby’s fortunes around. After just missing out on promotion last season they would have expected better this time around.
This is a bad time to be playing Northampton, and under the lights with a full crowd in, it will not be easy for Derby. For that reason, I’m predicting the match will end a draw, with a replay looming for both sides.
The last of our betting tips for this match is a correct score prediction and I’m going for a 1-1 draw. Both sides are on a six game unbeaten run and even though Derby are two leagues above Northampton Town, the Cobblers have home advantage tonight.
In recent weeks, Northampton have started scoring more goals so the Derby defenders will have to be on their guard tonight to avoid a shock. With both teams expected to score, a 1-1 scoreline looks like a good bet.
