The FA Cup has reached the 6th Round Proper stage and this is when the competition gets real. As one of the most prestigious football tournaments in the world and a highly acclaimed honour in the UK you can bet your bottom dollar that the teams still left in this tournament will be fighting tooth and nail to progress further. Having already caused a few upsets to the predictors and the bookmakers, the FA Cup bets have had as many ups and downs as the tournament itself. Several pundits have already weighed in with their predictions but their FA Cup betting tips are not the only ones out there to follow. With 4 matches from the last round still to be decided with replays the likes of Chelsea and Fulham are still waiting to find out their opponents but it doesn’t mean that you have to wait to get involved in the FA Cup betting. Just like in many forms of football, fans and pundits alike will be making predictions but only if you trust yourself as a predictor should you place a bet on the FA Cup.
The FA Cup betting odds have obviously singled Chelsea out as the favourites given that they have the strongest team in the competition. However, despite what the FA Cup bets may suggest this is a competition steeped in history that tells us surprising results are not uncommon and the bookmaker knows this. Bottom of the table Portsmouth are at home to Birmingham in the next round with both teams believing they have a good chance of getting through to the semi-final stage. The potential matchup between Chelsea and Manchester City has got the pundits, fans and the media all salivating providing of course that they can get past Stoke.
Don’t forget either that there are still 3 Championship teams left in the draw although there is a chance that only one of them will make it through to the 6th Round Proper. Reading come up against West Brom again in their replay having drawn 2-2 in the first match. Meanwhile Crystal Palace face another Premier league opponent in the form of Aston Villa having already dispatched of Wolves and earning a well deserved draw against Aston Villa first time round. Don’t let all the FA Cup betting tips put you off putting down an FA Cup bet and don’t underestimate the little guy when placing that FA Cup bet because the FA Cup betting odds never tell the whole story. Just ask Leeds and the bookmakers this season.
