FA Cup Betting

The Football Association Cup is a tournament that millions of people around the world will have grown up watching. The FA Cup is the oldest club cup competition in the world and because of this it has history and beauty that not only English fans can relate to.

FA Cup betting news is important for a number of different reasons. A lot of clubs dream of playing in the FA Cup and some come from different non-league backgrounds and have great stories to tell.

FA Cup betting news plays a vital role in help new and experienced gamblers navigate their way through the early stages of the tournament, avoiding all of those potential banana skins which could be the cause of a lot of lost money.

Betting on the FA Cup is one of the football markets where the value of betting actually increases as the rounds go past. When some of the non-league clubs get drawn against a big football league side, there is often no value at all in backing the football league side to win the match.

It’s only in the later rounds of FA Cup betting when the bigger clubs have survived and are pitted against each other that the value starts to come out. The simple reason for this is that the matches are more difficult to call when the gap in quality between two sides is smaller.

News about the FA Cup

News about the FA Cup is a vital resource for gamblers who like to have a bet on the competition through all rounds. Some of the non-league clubs do not have massive news backgrounds so news about the FA Cup helps to uncover league form and statistics for individual players.

News about the FA Cup doesn’t just start when the first round kicks in. For some teams qualifying starts in the middle of the summer and news about the FA Cup plays a vital role in showing the non-league sides that are in red hot form. Momentum may be an over used word in the world of football but it is never more relevant than with an FA Cup run.

FA Cup Free Bets

Betting news for the FA Cup often details a lot of special and free bets which are produced just for the FA Cup. These types of bets can be very difficult to keep track of for the reason that there are so many of them.

Football betting news covers a whole host of other competitions besides the FA Cup so the whole issue of special bets and betting news can seem confusing to a brand new customer to the gambling world. There are free bets for the Premier League, Carling Cup, Champions League, Europa League and many more.

FA Cup betting news is also very important when a bigger club plays a smaller club because of team rotation. Bigger clubs will make massive changes to their team if they are playing a non-league or lower division club. Seven or eight team changes can have a significant impact on the way a gambler thinks about a certain football team.

Recent history

Well, the easy way to say this would be to say Arsenal are the FA Cup's recent history. The red half of north London have used the competition to placate fans while failing to truly compete for the league title or in the Champions League, but despite winning three of the last four competitions, there is only so long fans will tolerate a club of their size not achieving more in the bigger competitions. Still, it's a very noteworthy footnote for punters to consider; Arsene Wenger takes this cup very seriously and perhaps even more so than any other manager currently. His team selections will often reflect that and Arsenal have turned a corner after a decade without a trophy

The Third Round

Arguably the most watched part of the tournament, even more so than the final itself - and that's watched all around the world. The third round is where the Premier League clubs are introduced to the competition for the first time and the draw often sees some spectacular matchups you would otherwise never see. Non-league sides could face Premier League clubs and massive upsets can happen. By the same token, city rivals that are split by divisions can meet in an all or nothing tie that captures the imagination of an entire region. If you're a fan of one club like the most of us, you'll need to get as much information on the clubs playing in the different leagues as you can, and that is where we can help. The David Vs Goliath narrative will never get old.
