This week on the Lawro Audit, we’ve got a real treat for you. Since the weekend is dominated by FA Cup fixtures, the legend Mark Lawrenson, has decided to make predictions for all 32 games this weekend. Not a feat for a mere mortal, which is why Lawro truly is a God amongst men. But can we expect a lot of shocks and surprises from Lawro’s FA Cup predictions? Well, you will have to read on to find out, and also look out for some really tasty prices on offer for some of the FA Cup games this week. In fact, there’s on Premiership side away to a League Two side that are odds-against, as well as a Championship side against a Non-League team that are odds-against, too, which truly is value, even if those sides might not be the greastest. But all will be revealed soon.

Now, last week, Lawro had a decent week when it came to predicting winners. Yeah, he managed to get 7 winners out of 10, and if Manchester City hadn’t pulled off the late, late show, he would have been on for an 80% successful week when it came down to the winners. Of course, Lawro being Lawro, he managed to correctly predict 0 correct scores, which didn’t do much to help us get into profit. In fact, because so many of his predicted winners were odds-on, we still managed to make a loss of -2.76 units, which takes Lawro’s season’s total to -18.22 units, and unless he does well over the FA Cup weekend, that loss could skyrocket, as we’ve got 32 games, which means 64 predictions in total.

And just because it’s the FA Cup weekend, it doesn’t mean that we’ve not going to mention our And good friends at Bet365, as they are still doing their Bore Draw promotion again this week.

So, as you can see, a healthy glut of predictions, and not really any major shocks on the cards in Lawro’s predictions. Although I guess Birmingham beating Bournemouth would be considered a minor shock, as would Wolves beating West Ham. But, as always, it depends on the strength of the sides the bigger clubs put out. I mean, if Garde puts out a full-strength Aston Villa team, they’re going to route Wycombe, and the price could end up looking astronomical. It’s the same with Bolton – it’s still Championship against Non-League, regardless of how poor Bolton have been of late.
