Whilst the previous round had really just one outstanding match from all the fixtures, the FA Cup 4th round is a far more mouth-watering prospect with a number of local derbies and/or top flight clashes.
The tie of the round is clearly Liverpool v Manchester United, the two most successful sides in English football; UK betting will be focused on this game. United have the better of it over the last FA Cup 10 fixtures between the sides, losing just once but with tensions still fresh from the league game earlier in the season, history goes out of the window and it’s anybody’s bet to see who wins. Whilst Liverpool had an easy 5-1 win against Oldham in the previous round, United had to overcome their City rivals to progress, which was one of the games of the season. Punters searched through the internet to make their bets with online bookmakers, backing favourites City to the hilt and falling foul of a United 3-0 half time lead and a contentious sending off. With the way Man United, and Liverpool for that matter, are playing at the moment the match could go in any direction and no-one’s predictions are full proof.
There are some other potential crackers with Arsenal lining up an all Premier League clash against Villa, if they can overcome Leeds, and Everton playing Fulham, two sides that have been more than a little erratic this season. After the success of the last round, every online bookmaker on the internet will be looking to attract new customers with exclusive Free Bet offers and promises of ‘best odds’. Before making a final decision on choosing an online bookmaker, it is well worth considering 888sport, which has a welcome package containing £50 worth of Free Bets, as well as offers for mobile phone betting and free spins in the 888sport casino. These sorts of welcome offers, as well as superb, unique promotions, highlights why 888sport are continually rising in the standings of the best online bookmakers.
Here are some final tips for new punters who are making their first bets online: Check out the highlights from fixtures in the previous round as well as the results; compare odds with a few different sites; check each club’s place in the standings of their respective league and then you may become an ace predictor who can turn their bet from a mere punt into a money-maker.
Remember, betting on an outcome isn’t a guarantee of success and sometimes the results are not favourable, never bet what you are not willing to lose.
