We have a mixture of league and cup football for Times' stats man Bill Edgar to get his teeth into this week, and our man has come up with a trio of tips...
"Leicester lost to Watford in Rodgers' first match in charge but have since beaten Fulham, Burnley and Bournemouth. They are 1.774/5 on the Betfair Exchange to win away to Huddersfield Town, who are already doomed to relegation."
City may be made to wait
Manchester City are rightly strong favourites to reach the FA Cup final by beating Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday, but it is worth at least weighing up the draw after 90 minutes, which is available at 8.615/2 on the Betfair Exchange. Consider City's past two domestic cup games. First they were held to a goalless draw by Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final - on the same Wembley pitch where they will face Brighton - before they won a penalty shoot-out. Then they were close to being forced into extra time by Swansea City until Sergio Agüero struck an 88th-minute winner in their FA Cup quarter-final. Brighton have also become accustomed to stretched-out ties, having been involved in the only two periods of extra time from the fourth round onwards this season: they won 3-1 away to West Bromwich Albion in the fourth round and recorded a shoot-out victory away to Millwall in the quarter-finals.
Foxes fly out of traps
Brendan Rodgers is the fourth consecutive Leicester City manager to be quick off the blocks. Claudio Ranieri, Craig Shakespeare and Claude Puel all gained about two points per game over their opening eight matches - Champions League form - and Rodgers is on his way to matching or bettering his predecessors, winning three of his opening four fixtures since moving from Celtic. Leicester lost to Watford in Rodgers' first match in charge but have since beaten Fulham, Burnley and Bournemouth. They are 1.774/5 on the Betfair Exchange to win away to Huddersfield Town, who are already doomed to relegation.
Wonders of Wimbledon
Just over seven weeks ago AFC Wimbledon were nine points adrift of the second-bottom club at the foot of League One yet a remarkable run of six wins in nine games means that only goal difference is keeping them in the relegation zone. On Saturday they are at home to an Accrington team who are only two points above them (albeit with a game in hand) having faded fast after a promising start to the season. Wimbledon have shown their stomach for important games with their recent run of league results as well as their 4-2 FA Cup win over West Ham United in January. They are as high as 7-5 with the Betfair Sportsbook to beat Accrington.
