Live on ESPN: Thu 19.45: Luton, in full flow at Kenilworth Road, are 2/1 () to beat Charlton in the FA Cup tonight.
Luton and Charlton meet for a 2nd round replay after they couldn’t be separated at The Valley 12 days ago and the League 1 side arrive as 7/5 favs (bet365).
Both sides are chasing promotion in their respective leagues and one thing neither are short of goals; Luton have hit 22 in their last 5 home games while Charlton have netted an impressive 13 times in 5 away games. A repeat of last time’s 2-2 is 14/1 at Betfred while 5 goals or more in the game is a 5/1 chance at William Hill, certainly a strong possibility.
With both teams in such reliable form home and away, a stalemate may be the natuaral conclusion (5/2, Ladbrokes). Occasionally in these circumstances, a 0-0 ironically crops up but at 12/1 (Skybet), there’s not too much chance of that. These 2 sides could go one better and hit 3 goals a piece, rated as a 66/1 chance at Boylesports.
Also, you could consider Luton to be ahead at half-time and the game to finish in a draw (16/1, Betfred) but short odds backers should probably just stick to both teams to score (4/6, Betdaq) and a game with 3 or more goals, 8/11 at Stan James.
