Odds Movers – FA Cup Winner

0

We’re into the 5th round of the FA Cup as the “magic” dissipates and the cream begins to slowly rise to the top.

Chorley and Cheltenham were chopped from the running this past weekend despite valiant efforts, leaving nothing but Premier League and Championship sides in the hat (barring Crawley – awaiting their 4th round fixture v Bournemouth on Tuesday)

We’re deep enough in to this year’s competition for the big dogs to start taking this seriously now, so where has the money been going?

In this week’s ‘Odds Movers’ we check out the bookies favourites to win the FA Cup, as well as some of the movement in the betting markets for the runners and riders.

Manchester City – 9/4 into 2/1

2/1Bet

Manchester City may well have left it late against Cheltenham on Saturday night, but Guardiola’s side rallied thanks to Phil Foden, ending up 3-1 victors 

at Whaddon Road.

They travel to Swansea City in the next round, and with the City machine clicking into gear at the right time, they are the understandable favourites for the cup.

They’ve had their hands on the trophy twice in the last ten years, and 2/1 with BetVictor says they are the team to beat come the final at Wembley Stadium.

Manchester United – 12/1 into 9/2

9/2Bet

Bruno Fernandes was once again the difference for Manchester United at the weekend, with his late free-kick sinking Liverpool hearts in the derby.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has galvanised this United side into a winning machine, with West Ham United awaiting in the next round.

Their price has seen the biggest shift this weekend being cut from 12/1 to 9/2, as Solskjaer looks to rubber-stamp his time in the hot-seat with a trophy this summer.

Chelsea – 7/1 into 6/1

6/1Bet

Chelsea’s 3-1 home win to Luton Town proved the final nail in the Frank Lampard coffin.

The club’s record goal-scorer got given his marching orders on Monday morning, with German former PSG boss Thomas Tuchel waiting to take the reins in west London.

Will this new-manager-bounce translate into the FA Cup?

We’ve never seen a German manager lift the historic trophy, and 6/1 with UniBet says that Tuchel could be the first.

Leicester City – 14/1 into 12/1

12/1Bet

Brendan Rodgers has been getting a serious tune out of his Foxes in recent weeks, and a solid cup run looks like mirroring their form in the league.

Leicester are the perfect dark horse in this competition, who, with a favourable run, could quite easily go all the way.

They’ve got Brighton next and are strong favourites to make it into the quarter-finals.

You can get 12/1 with Bet365 for Brendy to have his hands on the cup in May.
