Fantastic FA Cup betting
Nostalgia enthusiasts insist that the FA Cup is not too special anymore but, while the Premier League and Champions Leagues ascents have diminished the glamour, it remains the most prestigious domestic cup in Europe. Many complain that big clubs no longer afford the competition the respect that it deserves but they have shared the trophy among themselves for the majority of the Premier League era. It is therefore usually wise to focus on the elite in the outright FA Cup winner betting market - though Crystal Palace may have something to say about that as they next face star-studded Manchester United in the showpiece finale for 2015/16. Man Utd have triumphed most often historically but Arsenal and, more recently, Chelsea FA Cup winner odds have been the ones to exploit on coral.co.uk so far this century. FA Cup betting markets also provide an opportunity for those who fancy themselves as giantkiller spotters to turn small stakes into a handsome payout by backing a chunkily-priced outsider, the FA Cup almost guarantees shock results every year. Long FA Cup winner odds occasionally come in too, as shown by Portsmouth in 2008 and Wigan in 2013, but it is a Premier League-dominated competition. That does not stop Football League and non-league clubs from having fun early on. Third round FA Cup match betting is rife with opportunities to back underdogs from the second tier down to embarrass complacent Premier League teams, so keep an eye out for exceptional odds in 2016/17.
