FA Cup Betting Tips for Fourth Round with All Big Teams at Home

Jack Young

Top teams like Manchester United and Arsenal are once again favourites to clear the FA Cup fourth-round with relative ease according to latest FA Cup betting tips.

The English FA Cup is the oldest football tournament in the world. The first edition of the tournament was held in 1871 with the 2016-17 edition being the 136th in the history of the tournament. One of the major attractions – leading to several football betting interest – surrounding the FA Cup has been the knockout format, which has largely remained similar throughout the tournament’s history.

Key Info

This open knockout format allows teams from the league and the non-league making it extremely comprehensive, and a reason for FA Cup winners being cherished. Manchester United and Arsenal have been the most clubs in the tournament after having lifted the title 12 times each.

Both will be in contention for the fifth round of the competition. Manchester United are the defending champions after having won the title for the first time since the 2003-04 season. Their reward for a comprehensive 4-0 win over Reading in the third round is a game against Wigan Athletic. Unbeaten in the last 11 matches of all competitions, United are overwhelming favourites to win according to the FA Cup betting tips. The 32 teams in the fourth round of the competition will be fighting for a place in the last 16.

What You Need to Know

The final of the FA Cup will be played at Wembley as it has always been done, apart from the year when the stadium was renovated during the early part of this century. The fourth round games, however, will be played at the ground of the home team. This has always provided the edge in terms of the FA Cup betting odds. This would spell bad news for the 2016-17 season’s underdogs given that the likes of Liverpool, Tottenham, Chelsea, and Manchester United are playing at home. Football betting tips would always see these clubs at a major disadvantage if they were to play away from home against a lower league opposition.

FA Cup - Fourth Round Odds & Explanations

Reigning Premier League champions Leicester City are the only major team on the road in the fourth round. Even though a total of 412 goals have been scored in the 149 games at an average of 3.15 per match, FA Cup predictions expect this number to reduce as a tournament goes on.

Chelsea have been easily trimmed from 5/1 to a staggering 9/2 outright favourites after the 4th round draw for the upcoming FA Cup event. The Premier Leage pace-setters trained by Antonio Conte will play against Brentford.

Manchester United share some favouritism with rivals from Manchester City at 11/2 and they will play against Wigan and Crystal Palace respectively. Jose Mourinho's team will play at Old Trafford and Man City will play away from their home field.

Tottenham were also shortened in the betting world after being drawn on their home field against Wycombe. Spurs are now 6/1 alongside the incredible team of Liverpool.

Arsenal are next at 8/1 and they will play away with Norwich or Southampton, while Newcastle will probably face Oxford if they win against Birmingham in the 3rd replay (and is 40/1 to win the tournament).

Leeds won their position in the 4th round with a strong 2-1 comeback triumph on Monday at Cambridge. Garry Monk's men are now 80/1 to win the final.

Unlike in the last few seasons, more teams are going to take the FA Cup seriously given that it provides a Europa League spot. Hence, bet online interest is also going to be higher. Even then, the probability of top Premier League teams winning the competition seem to be higher as they get the best odds.
