The draw for the fifth round of the FA Cup was made on Monday, and while there are still some replay issues to be settled to see who will take their place in the line-up, it is reigning FA Cup holders Arsenal who are 9/4 favourites with online betting site Ladbrokes.

While FA Cup favourites Man City and Chelsea were crashing out of the competition in a fourth round weekend that was full of upsets, Arsenal avoided their banana skin as they took a win down on the south coast against Championship side Brighton. Their reward for safely negotiating the game against the Seagulls has been a home fixture in the fifth round against Middlesbrough.

Championship outfit Middlesbourgh of course were the ones to cause a big upset in the fourth round, as they beat Manchester City 2-0 at the Etihad. Chelsea’s conquerors Bradford get the big reward of a home fixture against either Fulham or Sunderland in the fifth round. Second favourites in the revised FA Cup outright winner market is Manchester United at 5/2, who still have to come through their Old Trafford replay against Cambridge. The winner of that will face either Preston or Sheffield on the road.

The winner of the Bolton v Liverpool replay will make a trip to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace, with Liverpool running as 11/2 third favourites to lift the cup. West Brom v West Ham and Aston Villa v Leicester City to come in the fifth round are two guaranteed all-Premier League clashes.

It was a weekend when that old FA Cup magic really came back into play. It was such a weekend of drama and upsets that most of the major market leaders in the FA Cup outright winners market all fell by the wayside. It will leave the draw for the fifth round severely devoid of big gun threats.

The weekend of shocks all kicked off at the Abbey Stadium on Friday night, where Cambridge were well worthy of their 0-0 draw against Manchester United. But there were bigger results to come on Saturday, with Championship promotion hopefuls Middlesbrough taking a 1-0 at the Etihad against Manchester City. If that wasn’t a big enough Cup upset, the one at Stamford Bridge certainly nailed the giant-killing magic of the FA Cup.

Chelsea were leading 2-0 against League One outfit Bradford, but remarkably the Bantams hit back with a four goal flurry to topple the Blues at the Bridge. Other upsets in the fourth round of the FA Cup came at White HArt Lane where Spurs lost against Leicester, and at St Marys where Southampton were downed by Crystal Palace. Blackburn also pulled off an upset by beating Premier League side Swansea at Ewood Park.Liverpool’s lack of scoring power plagued them again as they were held to a 0-0 draw by the Championship’s Bolton, the Trotters not getting a single shot on target in the game.

So the draw for the fifth round will be pretty interesting and it has left Cup holders Arsenal as tentative outright favourites. The Gunners take on Brighton on the south coast on Sunday, and they are followed in the FA Cup outright market now by Manchester United, who will be expected to come through their replay at Old Trafford against Cambridge. Suddenly West Ham, who face Bristol City on Sunday, will have a lot of appeal for punters.

Cambridge v Manchester United Betting Preview

A real David and Goliath FA Cup tie to kick off the weekend as Manchester United take on the lowest ranked side left in the competition in the form of Cambridge on Friday night. Will the underdogs be able to rattle their Premier League opponents, who have had their struggles on the road this season? Can there be a massive giant-killing act from the League Two outfit?

Online betting site William Hill have great first goalscorer insurance available for football matches. Back a selection in the market and if your player fails to open the scoring in the game, but does net the second, then they will refund your losing first goalscorer stake with a free bet. There is also 0-0 bore draw insurance on select markets too.

Cambridge v Manchester United Betting Tips

One of the biggest clubs in the country take on the lowest side left in the competition. There is a bit of that old FA Cup magic about this fixture which goes off on Friday night. Cambridge are heavy, heavy underdogs to pull off something special at the Abbey Stadium, and punters probably won’t mind throwing a little flutter at them. However, Manchester United have a good record in the FA Cup against lower tiered opposition. The Red Devils have lost just one of their last 40 FA Cup matches against sides from lower division. Louis van Gaal’s men went to Yeovil in the third round, played poorly and still managed to win.

Manchester United have only ever ran into Cambridge once before in their history. That was back in the 1991/92 League Cup, when the Red Devils took a 4-1 win on aggregate over Cambridge. As if they needed it, there is further weight to add to United’s case, as they have gone up against teams from the fourth tier of English football seven times before in their history, and have won them all. United have averaged 3 goals per game in those matches, a total of 21 goals having been scored by them. Good averages to warrant having an over 2.5 goals wager.

Even though he is longer priced than Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao (5/6) in the anytime goalscorer market at William Hill, FA Cup scoring form is with Wayne Rooney who has scored six in his last six games in the competitions. So to Cambridge, who beat Luton in the third round to set up this lucrative tie. Can they battle and grind and get under United’s skin? This is the kind of fixture where there is nothing really other to do than throw everything at the Premier League outfit, because there is nothing to lose. Cambridge have won their last three games on the bounce, so have a little form going. If they get all aerial, then they could at least find a way past a shaky United defence.

Cambridge v Manchester United Betting Odds

Manchester United 2/9, Draw 6/1, Cambridge 16/1

Cambridge v Manchester United Predictions

United have won just four away matches all season. Should that give Cambridge a bit of hope? Why not? Giant-killing acts of this magnitude don’t happen too often and United should be backed to get through. Expect them to get a bit rattled though, but LVG’s men should find a way through in a game which goes over 2.5 goals and has both teams scoring.

It is back to the FA Cup for your football betting on the weekend of January 24th. The action kicks off on Friday night with the David and Goliath clash of Cambridge v Manchester United. All of the front runners in the FA Cup outright winner market are all standing. Will they all be there come the draw for the 5th round?

Here are some of our FA Cup 4th round predictions 2015.

Online bookmaker Paddy Power still have Chelsea at the head of the outright market, running as 2/9 favourites to win the cup, followed by Manchester City and Manchester United at 5/1, Arsenal 7/1, Liverpool 8/1, Spurs 12/1, Southampton 14/1, West Ham 16/1 and bar 28/1.

FA Cup 4th round predictions 2015 EPL Bankers

By and large the draw for the fourth round of the FA Cup was pretty kind to the top sides left in the competition. Fortunately for punters that means that there is a great looking accumulator to have a shot over the weekend.

Chelsea, Man City, Spurs and Liverpool are all at home, three of them against lower-tiered opposition. The exception is Spurs who host Premier League strugglers Leicester. So with Chelsea hosting League One’s Bradford and Man City and Liverpool facing Championship opposition in Middlesbrough and Bolton respectively, then it could be worth building an acca on them.

It’s likely that Manchester United can be thrown in there as well. They were handed the best draw of the lot as they take on League Two opposition in Cambridge, who are the lowest ranked side left in the draw. United played pretty poorly away at Yeovil in the third round and still managed a 2-0 win. Little chance of them suffering a giant-killing embarrassment. Untied are 2/9 for the win, opposed by the 15/1 quote on Cambridge.

If you are thinking of an FA Cup ACCA, then online bookmaker Paddy Power offer 20% win bonuses on successful fivefold or bigger accas. The offer applies to the w/d/w market in any matches, including FA Cup fixtures. Just land a winning acca and get paid a 20% bonus on top!

Holders to progress

Arsenal have the trickiest draw of the FA Cup big guns, but still look good value to make it through. The Gunners hit the road on Sunday, where they are 3/5 favourites to take a win down on the south coast against Brighton (5/1). The Championship side are just hovering above the drop zone, and with Arsenal having produced one of the best away performances of the season in beating Man City 2-0 at the Etihad on the weekend, tough not to get behind the confident Gunners.

FA Cup 4th round predictions 2015 Potential Upsets

Aston Villa v Bournemouth: This is the meatiest looking cup upset on the cards for the fourth round. Everyone knows that Aston Villa can’t score goals, and that was highlighted in the last round where they only edged past Championship bottom-side Blackpool 1-0. They have a much tougher time on their hands in the fourth round as they host Championship leaders Bournemouth (who recently put six past Blackpool in a league game). The Cherries are bursting with goals, and could well hammer the Villains out of sight. Bournemouth at 9/4 are one of the best priced sides in the FA Cup fourth round.

Blackburn v Swansea: There probably won’t be too much to choose between these two. Incidentally, that last two meetings have gone over 2.5 goals. Swansea may be a bit nervy after their home hammering against Chelsea on the weekend. They have fallen out of form, and while Championship side Blackburn have too, Rovers may be able to grind something out of this one with a bit of grit and steel. The Swans may crumble if they concede the opener.

There’s a big battle between two League One sides, Preston and Sheffield United. Preston are in the top four in the league, ten points ahead of the Blades. But the Blades have already proven their Cup prowess this season in making a run to the Capital One Cup semi finals. Their season has been built on defence, shown in their win over Southampton in the League Cup. They go as 5/2 underdogs against Preston, but Nigel Clough’s men may just be worth a flutter to at least grab a replay.

There is another big enhanced odds offering up for grabs at online betting site Skybet as they deliver another price boost. This promotional offer is one of the most popular bonuses around out there, and what makes it even better is that the offer is open to both new and existing Skybet customers.

Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester United are three of the favourites on Saturday’s Premier League coupon, and those are the three teams making up Sky Bet’s enhanced odds treble.

Chelsea got themselves back on track last weekend with a home win over Newcastle, and after beating Swansea 4-2 at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season, they are running as odds-on favourites at Liberty Stadium, especially with Swansea having sold Wilfried Bony to Man CIty.

Manchester United will be looking for redemption after losing at home against Southampton last weekend, and Louis van Gaal’s men head to London to take on QPR who are fighting for survival. Tottenham are the only ones at home in the deal, as the Lilywhites will look to extend their unbeaten home from as they host Sunderland.

If Spurs, Manchester United and Chelsea all three win their matches then you will be paid out at the enhanced odds of 4/1, which is a boost from the industry standard of 3/1.

Sky Bet’s head of trading Sandro Di Michele said: “The popular Soccer Saturday Price Boost has gone our way over the past couple of weeks but punters will be out in force with three of the most popular team included in the treble this weekend.

“We’re relying on either Swansea, QPR & Sunderland to provide an upset but punters will be hoping the favourites pick up the three points.”

Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham are the three teams that make up the enhanced odds treble available at Bet Victor.

That constitutes a huge price boost because Manchester United are 8/13 to go out and beat QPR at Loftus Road, while Chelsea are 4/7 to keep up their title challenge with three points away at Swansea City.

The only home side in the offer is Tottenham, who entertain Sunderland, all games going off on Saturday.

The Red Devils will be keen to bounce back from their unexpected slip up at home against Southampton. That defeat ended a twelve match unbeaten streak in the top flight for Louis van Gaal’s men, and despite having some wobbles on the road this season, having taken just the two victories away from Old Trafford, United are heavy 8/13 favourites at Sportingbet to topple QPR.

Rangers do have some decent home from going, but they haven’t beaten Manchester United at the last sixteen attempts in all competitions, and the Red Devils have Wayne Rooney who has scored in three of his four Premier League starts against QPR and assisted two more goals on top of that.

United are also unbeaten in their last nine matches in all competitions against Rangers at Loftus Road (W6 D3), so naturally they are being heavily backed. QPR’s defence has let them down badly and losing back to back matches against Sheffield United (FA Cup) and fellow Premier League strugglers Burnley, then QPR may have a hard time keeping the United power attack off the scoresheet.

New customers registering an account with online betting site Sportingbet can get enhanced odds of 5/1 on United to win. How? By registering an account with them through this unique link.

Just open your new Sportingbet account and place your first bet on the account (at least £10) on Manchester United to take the win at Loftus Road. If they do win, then you will be paid out at the regular odds on the site, and then the additional winnings will come back to you as a free bet!

If you don’t fancy backing United, then the same Sportingbet enhanced odds deal applies to either Arsenal, Liverpool, Man City or Chelsea for your first bet on a new account (check the listings). The maximum bonus payout is £50.

Premier League Betting

QPR v Manchester United Betting Preview

Are Manchester United vulnerable and will punters lay them to lose back to back Premier League games? The Red Devils lost at home against Southampton last weekend and haven’t been all that convincing on the road. With QPR having some strong home form going, is there another humbling away day coming for Louis van Gaal?

Big enhanced odds available at online bookmaker Bet Victor this weekend. New customers only can take advantage of a boost from the industry standard of 3/1 to a massive 7/1 available at Bet Victor on Manchester United, Chelsea and Spurs to all win their matches. Open a new account with BetVictor and place your FIRST BET as a treble on Man Utd, Chelsea & Spurs All To Win, with a maximum total stake of £5.

QPR v Manchester United Betting Tips

Even though they are firmly rooted in the drop zone, QPR are unbeaten in their last seven games at Loftus Road in the top flight. That’s a pretty decent record, with four of those seven having been won. If only they could get anything in the bag on the road, and Harry Redknapp’s men would probably be a comfortable mid table side. Their resolve is going to be tested on the weekend you would imagine, and they have allowed more shots on target against them than any other team in the Premier League (118).

Charlie Austin is hot betting property at the moment, as he has scored eight goals in his last seven Premier League games at Loftus Road. He can be snapped up at a 2/1 rating in the anytime goalscorer market for the match. QPR were frankly dreadful in their 4-0 defeat at Old Trafford earlier in the season, but there have been improvements since then, a lot more fight having been shown by Harry redknapp’s men. They haven’t taken a win in any of their last nine home games against the Red Devils though and probably a draw is the best that they could hope for on the weekend.

Manchester United have lost just one of their last 19 Premier League visits to London (W11 D7 L1), and they are are unbeaten in their last nine matches in all competitions against Rangers at Loftus Road (W6 D3). They will be looking to bounce back after losing at home to Southampton last weekend. That snapped their 12 match unbeaten streak and so have to start building some momentum again. Louis van Gaal’s away tactics have been heavily criticised and United have looked poor generally on the road where they have managed just a W2 D6 L2 record this season.

United have drawn their last three away games in the top flight (Aston Villa, Spurs and Stoke) and have managed just the one win in their last five Premier League matches. They may have gone off the boil a bit, but they are still backable having won 13 and lost none of the last 16 matches in all competitions against Queens Park Rangers. Wayne Rooney looks good 6/5 value in the anytime goalscorer market at online bookmaker Bet Victor, as he has scored in three of his four Premier League starts against Queens Park Rangers and assisted two more goals.

QPR v Manchester United Betting Odds

Man Utd 4/7, Draw 3/1, QPR 5/1

QPR v Manchester United Predictions

Interestingly, Louis van Gaal has collected same number of points through 21 Premier League fixtures as David Moyes did last season. No sign of the Dutchman going anywhere though. United are pretty much full strength, but QPR’s home spirit has been commendable. There should be goals in this one and perhaps worth tilting towards another away draw for the Red Devils.
