FA Cup Latest Betting Tips PT 1- By A.J. Ryder on January 5, 2017 22:42 GMT
There's a solid selection of FA Cup fixtures set to unfold over the next several days and it's going to serve as a bookend to the tumultuous English Premier League holiday season since we now appear to have six clubs all with a reasonable shout of securing the title. The FA Cup looks like a really fascinating iteration this time around with a lot of potential upsets in the offering here – the big question looks to be whether one of the really big clubs will get knocked out by a minnow in the upcoming stage or two.
Chelsea get the edge from the bookmakers to win the FA Cup and come into this round of action with an 11/2 price tag to secure the trophy at the end of the tournament. The current English Premier League leaders have plenty of momentum so far up until now but after dropping a contest against Spurs yesterday, one must wonder whether this could precipitate a collapse for the London side over the short term.
The way that things look now, particularly in the English Premier League, that if one of the top sides takes their foot off the gas for just a second, they could soon find themselves tumbling down towards mid-table alongside the Everton's and West Brom's of the world.
Liverpool are trading at a 13/2 price to secure the FA Cup while Manchester City – who are in action on Friday night against West Ham – are available at a 15/2 price. Look for both Arsenal and Manchester United trading at 8/1.
The Hammers are taking on Manchester City at home but they are a hefty price to secure the win with a 19/4 listing being floated by a few major bookmakers. You'll find Manchester City trading at odds-on for the victory here with a slim 4/6 price tag. Expect that to get hit pretty hard during the build-up to the match on Friday.
