In the first column you can see the overall confidence rating for each FA Cup tip. This looks at the total win tips on each FA Cup match spread across home, away and draw selections. A higher confidence rating than the odds of that team is a good indication of a possible value bet.

  • FA Cup Betting Advice – How to Win When Betting on the FA Cup

    As well as providing tips for all the top world Leagues, OLBG also provides lots of in depth analysis to help you to improve your FA Cup Betting. Our football forum has discussion threads on the FA Cup which can assist you with your FA Cup tips.

    In the last 10 years the FA Cup has only once been won by a non-Big 6 team, that was in 20012/13 season when Wigan Athletic managed by Roberto Martinez beat Manchester City 1-0 in the final. Wigan then became the only team to win the Cup and be relegated in the same season, a dubious claim to fame.

    With the above record its likely that FA Cup tips will be heavily skewed towards the big boys, the skill in tipping on the FA Cup outright markets may be finding an underdog who can make the final, many underdogs have had their day in the sun in May, as well as Wigan, Portsmouth, Hull City and Aston Villa have all competed in the final in recent years.

    If you pick your bets on our FA Cup predictions page, you can add them to a betslip, then if you are backing your bets in an accumulator, you can see which bookie has the best odds for your FA Cup bet. In our article covering the Best Football Bookmakers, we look at the football betting odds provided by all the top UK bookmakers to see if any bookie regularly offers the best odds on football. There is research to suggest that BetVictor and Marathon Bet regularly provide good odds on individual football matches. There are also a host of bookies offering incentives for football accumulators.

    Do check out our free bets and promotions pages though and the offers listed by the matches on site and in our app. All bookies regularly provide great enhanced odds offers and other specials on the FA Cup betting markets.

  • FA Cup Betting & Statistics

    Around 730 clubs enter the FA Cup with the preliminary rounds starting each year in August. The big clubs join the competition in January for the third round of FA Cup matches. The FA Cup Final will take place at Wembley in May.

    Giant killings are a regular feature of FA Cup matches, with the big boys unprepared for the tenacity of their lower division opponents. Notable giant killings include Hereford beating Newcastle in 1972, Bradford beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in 2015, when the Blues were beaten 4-2 after leading 2-0, and the Crazy Gang Wimbledon ruffling the feathers of Liverpool in the  Final of 1988.
