Sports Betting: The Owls are Cup value at 28-1

SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY, who gave West Ham, their hosts, a 4-0 hammering in their Premiership game at Upton Park on Saturday, look the best value left in the FA Cup ahead of this week-end's fourth round, which features several potentially tight ties.

The Owls, who entertain Stockport, struggling in the First Division, at Hillsborough, should have no trouble in securing their place in the fifth round draw and, at 28-1 with Coral, they are not a bad bet.

Aston Villa should brush aside Fulham at Villa Park, and Second Division Bristol Rovers, rampant 6-0 winners at Reading on Saturday, should beat visitors Leyton Orient of the Third Division but make little appeal at 13-2 (no value) and 350-1 (no chance) to win the Cup outright. And Manchester United, while likely to beat Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday, may have the European Cup on their minds come the latter stages.

The other 12 ties could easily end in draws over 90 minutes a remark which also applies to this week's second round replays which feature Sheffield United versus Notts County and Swindon versus Barnsley.
