FA Cup minnows bidding to slay giants
1 Magic of the cup for non-league pair
Lincoln and Sutton have done brilliantly to reach the fifth round of the FA Cup and deserve their televised ties against Premier League opposition.
The National League duo are big underdogs to cause further upsets and make the quarter-finals but they will fancy their chances of at least giving a solid account of themselves.
Betfair offer evens that Lincoln score at Burnley, while Sutton are 11-10 with Betway to bag against an Arsenal side still reeling from their mauling in Munich on Wednesday.
2 Birthday boy hunting a goal
Anton Ferdinand enjoys his birthday, sometimes too much it seems. He was fined two weeks wages in 2007 after being found out telling porkies to West Ham, claiming he was visiting his nan on the Isle of Wight when instead he was celebrating his 22nd birthday in South Carolina. Who'd have thought he'd get caught?
Ten years on the Southend defender is 16-1 (bet365) to score against Northampton on his birthday and follow PSG pair Angel Di Maria and Edinson Cavani who both proved the birthday goal system is alive and well against Barcelona on Tuesday.
3 Murty's first league match with Gers
Rangers are odds-on to beat Dundee but caretaker boss Graeme Murty is not expected to get the managerial gig on a full-time basis judging by Paddy Power's quote of 15-2 about him replacing Mark Warburton. Alex McLeish is 4-9 favourite with Sky Bet.
