Do they have any chance of making it to round three where they will potentially meet one of the genuine big boys of the English pyramid? Find out with our Kings Lynn vs Stevenage match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.
Backing a draw
We begin our tips in a seriously bold way as we back National League North side Kings Lynn to take Stevenage of League Two to a replay. Kings Lynn have been unbeaten across their last five games, have lost just one of their last 10 matches and they've won six of those games. Stevenage meanwhile have won five of their last 10 games but they have notably only lost once in that time. With both sides in good form at their respective levels, they'll both arrive into this game in high spirits and, given the lower league side are at home, we think everything is geared up for them to grab a historic result.
Banking on a low scoring match
Our next prediction for this FA Cup tie between Kings Lynn and Stevenage sees us backing under 2.5 goals in the total goals market. Both teams have seen three of their last five games fall south of the aforementioned 2.5 goal cut off giving them a 60% under ratio in recent weeks. Combine that with the way this match is likely to unfold and a low scoring game is highly likely. Kings Lynn are unlikely to come out on top in an open and expansive game; as such we're expecting them to sit in and frustrate Stevenage. If the game pans out in that manner then the prospect of a few goals isn't particularly likely.

Can the National League North side actually win?
Being the underdog, Kings Lynn will have the whole nation on their side as they face a Stevenage side that have been as high as League One in the not too distant past. Now they're a league lower but any result for Kings Lynn will be seen as an enormous scalp. Can they deliver?
Kings Lynn are going well in the National League North with promotion a very real possibility for them. Even so, they'll be desperate to win this game knowing the financial implications could set them up for years to come. Don't expect to see anything but the strongest possible lineup.
Kings Lynn Predicted lineup – Jones, Jones, Crowther, Coulson, Denton, Scott, Clunan, Hargreaves, Widdrington, Barrett, Ponticelli
Stevenage are in a similar position to Kings Lynn but just a couple of divisions higher. Promotion to League One is very much on their radar. They won't want a cup shock to derail them though so we're expecting a strong lineup from them here. Danny Rose is the one to watch.
Stevenage Predicted lineup – Ashby-Hammond, Clark, Earley, Piergianni, Sweeney, Wildin, Gilbey, Vancooten, Reeves, Norris, Rose
