The FA Cup is the biggest domestic trophy in English football. It is one of the oldest association football competitions in the world and is a huge event on football betting fans’ calendars. The competition is open to any club down to level 10 of the English football league system. This incorporates the Premier League, all levels of the English Football League and several hundred clubs that are considered “non-league”. FA Cup betting is a staple at online bookmakers throughout the English football season thanks to the wide base of fans who could see their team in action.
Domestic competitions certainly have the potential to be predictable affairs in their early stages, but this is not always the case with the FA Cup, which always gives football betting fans a small portion of cracking fixtures each season. The competition seems to never be without magical and entertaining football - whether it’s the humble Luton town outplaying Norwich City 1-0 in 2013, or Wigan beating the Goliath that is Manchester City 1-0 in the final - then going on to be relegated from the Premier League a couple of days later.
Like many other football competitions, such as the Premier League or Champions League, there are always a myriad of FA Cup betting options for eager punters to avail of throughout its season. Classics, such as the outright winner of the competition, are available, while many top online bookmakers now allow for more exotic markets, including the ability to build your own bets.
The FA Cup offers plenty of value for eager punters, the brunt of which is shown through the majority of bookmakers in either decimal or fractional odds format. An example of fractional odds would be ¼. The easiest way to understand this is: [how much will you win] / [how much you place]. If fractional odds for your FA Cup bet appear the wrong way around, like 2/7 these are known as ‘odds-on’ bets.
These will appear when the bet you’re placing is on a strong favourite. Punters often find decimal odds easier to understand. All you need to do to work out your potential winnings is multiply your stake by the odds. For example, if you place £10 on Arsenal to win the FA Cup at decimal odds of 6 then your winnings would come back at £60. Nice!
