FA Cup Betting Odds
The FA Cup is the oldest national annual tournament in the world. Due to its format, prestige and 150-year history, the FA Cup is very special to football fans, as well as the online sports betting world.
Winning the FA CUP at Wembley is an honour for any club in England. The FA Cup is the pure essence of English football because of its high level of uncertainty, emotion and spectacle for the punters.
The FA Cup is open
The FA Cup is open to amateurs, with teams from the 10th division participating. The tournament is often full of surprises, and it is always complicated.
Since 2013, Wigan and Leicester have won the competition, while teams like Hull City, Aston Villa, Crystal Palace or Watford have reached the final but ended up losing. However, before the much-anticipated finals, the FA Cup provides exciting matches throughout the season — from start to finish.
Although the magic of the competition has faded a bit for quite some time, there is no doubt that the FA Cup is still special and offers unique opportunities to those who bet on the games.
Betting on the FA Cup 2021/22
The FA Cup season has already been underway for several months, along with the preliminary round with 729 teams on the starting line. In all, there are 14 rounds. The competition takes a decisive turn in the third round when the Premier League teams enter the competition.
The semi-finals and final are played at Wembley. The winner of the FA Cup qualifies for the group stage of the UEFA Europa League in the following season.
Recommended bets on the FA Cup
The tournament offers many FA Cup betting odds and opportunities to get great value at every stage of the competition.
All rounds are drawn usually either at the end of the previous round or on the night of the last televised match of a current round, depending on TV rights.
Tied teams will replay their matches at a later date. When the end of the matches are approaching, and both teams are headed for a draw, a recommended bet in live betting is to bet on the team that is favoured and has a busy schedule, as they will force the decision before the final whistle.
Who is the FA Cup betting favourite?
Manchester City is among the favourites to win the FA Cup, and the Citizens continue to assert their dominance in English football. Chelsea has good odds to go further than last year and win the FA Cup for the ninth time in its history. Unfortunately, they lost the last two finals.
