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.
