Coral's Fantastic FA Cup betting
Nostalgia enthusiasts insist that the FA Cup is not too special anymore but, while the Premier League and Champions League's 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 – as Manchester United proved when winning the trophy in the 2015/16 season. United have triumphed most often historically along with Arsenal but, more recently, the Gunners' and Chelsea’s 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 giant-killer spotters to turn small stakes into a handsome payout by backing a chunkily-priced outsider, with the FA Cup almost guaranteeing shock results every year. Long FA Cup winner odds occasionally come in too, as shown by Portsmouth in 2008 and Wigan Athletic in 2013, but it is generally a Premier League-dominated competition.
Enjoy the romance of the cup with Coral
That does not stop Football League and non-league clubs from having fun early on though. Third round FA Cup match betting and beyond 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 as the competition continues towards the business end with a final at Wembley in May 2017. If Coral customers wish to find out all of the latest news, betting tips and previews on the FA Cup, then our news homepage is the place to peruse content to your heart's desire – you may even find a tip in there. While Manchester United’s victory in the FA Cup last season hardly played on the ‘romance of the cup’, there are plenty of opportunities for the new season to bet on a complete outsider for an against-all-odds win in the Wembley showpiece come spring. Who will you be backing?
