Grimsby vs Slough Betting Tips 

  • Grimsby Town to win & both teams to score @ 15/8  
  • Over 3.5 goals @ 6/4 

Match Odds  

Grimsby Town are odds-on favourites at 8/15 to win this tie in 90 minutes, with Slough 4/1 outsiders and a draw priced up at 10/3. 

Plenty of goals are expected, though, with over 2.5 goals at 4/7 and 4/6 offered for both teams to score. 

Team news 

Toby Mullarkey is set to fill in at right-back for Grimsby again with Michee Efete still sidelined, while the hosts will also be without three players due to international call-ups, with attackers Abo Eisa and Otis Khan and midfielder Kamil Conteh all on international duty. 

Slough midfielder Leon Chambers-Parillon is expected to return to the squad after injury, while George Alexander should lead the line for the visitors again after Tom McElroy left for Beaconsfield earlier this month. 

Grimsby Town to win & both teams to score @ 15/8

Grimsby Town followed their 1-1 draw with Slough with a fantastic 3-2 win over Morecambe on Saturday, and they should be able to carry that confidence into this FA Cup replay. However, their defensive problems could cause a few issues. 

The hosts, who sit 21st in League Two, are without a clean sheet in 14 competitive games and face a Slough side that knows how to find the back of the net. The visitors lost a seven-goal thriller at Welling United at the weekend and have scored 13 goals in their last five matches, while they have also notched ten in their previous four away games. 

The Mariners are unbeaten in seven FA Cup home games in a run stretching back to 15, and they should be able to avoid an upset on Tuesday.  

They scored three goals in front of their own fans at the weekend and could replicate that, making a Grimsby win & both teams to score an appealing option alongside a 3-1 correct score prediction at 11/1. 

Over 3.5 goals @ 6/4  

Both of these sides have been among the goals lately, and a high-scoring affair at Blundell Park is expected. 

Over 3.5 goals has landed in three of Grimsby's last five matches, and Slough played their part in a seven-goal thriller over the weekend. Each of the visitors' last four away games have produced at least four goals, and their last five matches have yielded 4.8 goals per game on average.
