FA Cup Weekend Betting Preview PT 2- By A.J. Ryder on March 10, 2017 18:44 GMT
The Gunners go into their contest with Lincoln at a best price of about 1/10 with the vast majority of bookmakers going 1/14 or 1/16. Teams like Lincoln have certainly made impressions later on into the tournaments but this will be a massive achievement. Even forcing a replay here could be immense and you're looking at a pretty enticing price of about 14/1 if they are actually going to be able to pull it off this time.
Lincoln to win the match outright (and you'd have to assume Arsene Wenger may never recover from that) would reward as high as a 35/1 margin with the majority of books goings about 28/1 or so for that to happen.
Spurs play host to Millwall on Sunday and that's another pretty lopsided affair, however, Millwall can be a tough side to line up against with their large physical presence and we all know they are going to bring some very loud and aggressive supporters across town with them. Spurs can be backed at a slim price of about 1/6 right now with Millwall trading at a massive 20/1 with several bookmakers though the majority of them are floating Millwall at a price around 16/1.
The 8/1 draw here is certainly not out of the question and you can bank on them to pull something off here but again it's best to save those draw wagers for the in-play wagering when you get a better sense of the rhythm of the game.
On Monday we have Chelsea coming into their match with Jose Mourinho's Manchester United side, who are still smarting from a tough 1-1 draw to FC Rostov in the Europa League on a contest played out on a pitch that looked unfit for children to play on.
The Blues come into th contest with an odds-on price of about 20/21 or 19/20 depending on whom you're wagering with. The draw is a 5/2 shout while Manchester United to pull off a victory that would be largely viewed as the morale boosting contest of the season would pay out as high as a 19/5 margin with most books going around 7/2.
Should Jose Mourinho be able to pull off an FA Cup victory at Chelsea against his old club then you could only imagine the reaction and the smugness levels will likely be able to be seen from the International Space Station.
