Wolves vs Liverpool, BTTS @ 1.70
Expecting this to be a scrappy game. Anyone expecting Liverpool to put up their best players on field for this FA Cup game when they have so much more going on for them in this season is really plain and simple misinformed.
Expect something like this to be their start 11: Mignolet, Camacho, VVD, Lovren and Moreno; Fabinho, Keita and Lallana; Shaqiri, Sturridge and Origi.
VVD will be only playing due to their absolute lack of options for the position. And yes, Liverpool reserves can be a pretty strong side, specially in midfield, and they could win here, but will be lacking motivation and chemestry against a Wolverhampton team that proved to be quality more than once in this season against big teams, probably not rotating much if any players at all, and certainly not lacking motivation being the home team. Even then, Klopp has already said he might be forced to be creative at CB. I expect both Dejan and VVD to be rested as both are only fit CB he has available and this may give the hosts the opportunity to breach the visiting team's defence

Four of Tondela's last 5 games have seen both teams scoring. Of their last 5 home games, 4 have had both teams scoring. Sporting's last 5 games has also seen 4 with both teams scoring and their last 5 away games has also seen 4 with both teams scoring.
Last time these teams played both teams scored and 4 of their last 5 head to head games had both teams scoring. Tondela average 1 goal scored per game at home with 1.25 conceded. Sporting average 1.9 goals scored away and concede an average of 1.2 goals per game.

FC Porto ML & Over 2.5 Goals vs Nacional @ 1.55
This one is pretty obvious. FC Porto are on good form at the moment and play host to a struggling Nacional. The hosts head into this game as the odds-on favourites with an expected win probability of 88%. Porto have won their last last 17 games. 6/7 of the hosts games have produced over 2.5 goals and seen both teams score.
Porto have won 13 of the previous 17 encounters between these two sides with 2 draws and 2 Nacional wins. Four of the last five games between these two sides have also produced at least three goals. The last game ended in a 7-0 rout in favor of Porto while the other last two meetings ended 4-0 each. Nacional have failed to keep a clean sheet in 20 games against the division leaders. The travelling side have been the first to concede in 5 of their last 7 games and have won just 2 of their 7 away games this season.
Results from the previous round:
Have a Happy and Prosperous New Year 2019.
