Free tips FA Cup 2nd Round: Curzon Ashton v AFC Wimbledon (12pm, Sunday)
AFC Wimbledon can avoid FA Cup upset with win at Curzon Ashton & Over 2.5 Goals
Curzon Ashton v AFC Wimbledon prediction:
AFC Wimbledon to win & Over 2.5 Goals @ 6/4 (2.50) with Betfred
Wimbledon is a name that will forever be synonymous with FA Cup giant-killing, but it’s not often that they themselves are considered to be the Goliaths in the competition.
That’s the case on Sunday though, when they travel to the Tameside Stadium to face Curzon Ashton of the National League North.
It’s a definite potential banana skin, but Curzon Ashton are currently a fairly lowly 16th in the National league North and have been conceding goals at a rate just in excess of two goals per game this season. The Dons, by contrast, are 7th in League One and have lost just once in 10 away league games this term.
Curzon Ashton owe their place in the 2nd round to a replay win over the minnows of Westfields in the last round, so they really are taking a major step up in class here.
Curzon Ashton v AFC Wimbledon tips:
This looks like a game where Wimbledon can avoid any upset and should be capable of winning with a bit to spare. Wimbledon to be winning at both half-time and full-time in the double result at 17/10 (2.70) with William Hill also has its attractions.
