FA Cup 1st Round Replays 2012

We have eight replays for the Tuesday card, with Tranmere and MK dons playing Friday on Sky.
Looking at the prices, there is a little value to be taken, especially as we look at Tranmere to begin.
Tranmere will be aware they are playing Friday, so the view is, they may play a weakened side, or will aim to finish Braintree off quickly and are priced up at 4/6 with Ladbrokes, which will tempt punters. Braintree are 19th in the conference, a couple of places above the relegation zone. They will enjoy their exposure on the TV screens and should expect a half decent gate with a terrific atmosphere on the night. Tranmere are 7/4 with Coral for a double result if you want better value. You may be put off knowing just ten of their 35 goals scored have occurred in the first half, so take with caution. Betvictor listed Tranmere to qualify as 3/1 earlier and quickly erased this, calling punters up to take the new price or void the bet.
MK dons play Cambridge City, not to be mistaken for the conference side. The Racing post tipped an MK Dons double result, which fell in the first meeting for an MK dons HT/FT. They are no bigger than 1/5 to see Cambridge off and as short as 1/25 to qualify. MK dons may be held up for the initial 30 mins, from a Cambridge side not wanting to be embarrassed by MK dons. This therefore turns us to the highest scoring half, which is 23/20 with Hills and this is value, seeing part time players will feel the fatigue in the second half.
Leyton Orient failed the first time around to see Gloucester off. They were highly fancied to beat them and were unsuccessful. It is likely a few fans will make the trip down the M4 to see their team beat Gloucester. They are 4/6 with Hills to succeed and we think, second time around, they will play more appropriately.
The two conference sides meet, being Luton and Nuneaton, where Luton will be challenging again for promotion back to the football league. Nuneaton are rooted at the bottom of the conference and have conceded nearly two goals a game. Bookies have taken some caution in offering Luton at near even money to beat their fellow league side. They are 10/11 at Ladbrokes, or more of a banker to qualify at 4/9 with Bwin.
Recommendations:
• Tranmere – 4/6 Ladbrokes
• MK dons 23/20 for highest scoring half (2nd)
• Orient – 4/6 Will Hill
• Luton – 10/11 Ladbrokes
Both teams to score selections:
• Barrow/Guiseley
• Bradford/Northampton
