as great as we are, we tipsters gotta eat too

Leeds come into this game on the back of 3 impressive wins, beating Crewe 5-2, Swindon away 3-1 and Carlsile away 2-0. They are good in attack with the very pacy Jermaine Beckford, who has 6 goals to his name in 7 matches. Hartlepool, however, are no pushovers, beating West Brom in the previous round 3-1 with 2 extra time goals, and holding current league one leaders to a 3-3 draw over the weekend. However, I feel that Leeds have had the better form of late, and with it being at Elland road, they should be able to triumph. After all, Leeds don't belong to League One, as they would have automatically qualified for Championship football if not for the 15 point deduction imposed on them, and thus Leeds should have too much quality for Hartlepool.

Roland's prediction: $5 on Leeds -0.5/1 @ 1.79 = $8.95
