THE magic of the FA Cup is back and punters across the country will be looking for potential money-making, giant-killing performances.

The weekend's cup ties bring some interesting meetings that will certainly tempt you to put your hand in your wallet.

Cardiff to win at Arsenal? 11/1. Huddersfield to win at Chelsea? 16/1. Mansfield to win at Newcastle? 12/1. Maybe not.

However, there are a few ties that are a little more likely to bring you nice returns. Norwich are 2/1 to beat West Ham at Carrow Road, Ipswich are 7/4 to get a home win against Portsmouth and Millwall are 10/3 to win at home to Everton.

If you are feeling confident, a £5 stake on a treble for three home wins will earn you just short of £180.

The Lakeside World Professional Darts Championship gets underway tomorrow and if you fancy backing a Cambridgeshire winner then there are four players to look out for.

Martin Adams is 9/1 to win the title, while Shaun Greatbatch is at 80/1, Dennis Harbour is 100/1 and Steve Roberts, playing in his first world championship, is 150/1.

Finally, congratulations to our competition winners who correctly answered our question - Chelsea will face Barcelona in the next stage of the Champions League.

Our two lucky winners, who each receive £25 of Ladbrokes betting vouchers, are J Buck from Fenland Road, Wisbech and Mr C Duller of Eastbourne Road, Chatteris.
