In football, the FA Cup is cranking up the excitement for football fans, and bettors, all around the world this weekend. Aston Villa take on Liverpool at Wembley Stadium in a game between one side, Liverpool, which desperately wants to give Steven Gerrard a cup final in his last game for the club, and another, Villa, which will play with no fear and with the brakes off. Who will prevail? Check out our betting tips and analysis.
Before that, second-tier Reading play Arsenal on the hallowed Wembley turf, and fans hope that the match will be a reenactment of the famous Premier League game between the two teams, which finished 7-4 to Arsenal back in 2012, and even put a smile on the face of the famously grumpy Gunners manager Arsene Wenger. Though Saturday's game is unlikely to be so high-scoring, there are still plenty of great bets to be had.
If the Premier League interests you more, we have coverage of the top game this weekend between Chelsea, who can take a giant step towards the title if they win this time around, and Manchester United, who after a tough start to the season look back to somewhere near their best. Our top bets might surprise you.
Of course, it's not just about football on BookieSmash.
