Lawro Audit 2: FA Cup 3

It’s back to FA Cup action this weekend, and after the last round, surely we’re not going to have as many fireworks? Although looking at the fixtures, there does seem to be the potential for a couple of upsets. If we don’t get any, I’ll feel slightly cheated. While there are no real blockbuster matches in the FA Cup this weekend, Fulham versus Spurs is a tasty London derby, and Blackburn Rovers versus Manchester United has that old-school Premiership feel to it. And on Monday night, Sutton take on Arsenal in what is undoubtedly going to be the biggest game in Sutton’s history, as they aim for the quarter-finals of the FA Cup with a match going out live on the BBC and around the world. So all eyes will be on this non-league side, and if they can pull off an upset, they could be the club that finally got Arsene Wenger the boot.

Now, onto Mark Lawrenson. After a disappointing week, we were hoping he was going to bounce back, so did he? Well, amazingly Lawro managed to get six correct results and out of those six results, he managed to get three correct scores. Yeah, I was amazed, just as I’m sure you are by Lawro’s amazing predictions last week. Sure, the results fell nicely, but that doesn’t take away the fact the big man had a great week. And how great was it? He made a profit of +15.74 units last week, and that takes his profit for the season up to a tasty +39.85 units. So, for every £10 wager made on Lawro’s predictions, you’d be in profit to the tune of £398.50. That’s not a bad position to get in going into another crazy FA Cup weekend, that’s for sure. Just how much damage can he do to that profit this time round? Hopefully nothing too bad.

Sutton vs Arsenal

Lawro Prediction: Arsenal win 3-0

Arsenal win price: 2/11

Correct score price: 6/1

I have to say that I’m a bit disappointed by Lawro’s predictions this week. The closest he’s come to predicting a shock is the 1-1 draw between Fulham and Tottenham. Everything else is as expected, Lawro predicting wins for all the big clubs and the traditional 3-0 wins for the games where there’s a massive gulf in class. Needless to say, Lawro is predicting an all-Premiership quarter-final line-up, but I’d be surprised if it was that simple – I think there’s at least one shock left in this year’s FA Cup.
