No replays

Beginning with the Third Round there are no FA Cup replays this season.

All matches will be settled on the day through extra time and then penalties if needed.

In the Third Round of the FA Cup, eight fixtures needed extra time, with just one of those going to a penalty shoot-out.

That was QPR’s 8-7 shoot-out success over Rotherham at Loftus Road.

Two Premier League teams were taken to extra time before getting through.

Those were Everton away at Championship side Hull and Southampton away at League One side Swansea.

So if you are looking at an underdog in FA Cup betting, consider the To Qualify market on the day.

Manchester City Favourites in FA Cup Betting

Manchester City are the big 11/4 favourites to win outright in FA Cup Betting * (odds recorded at 18:04 GMT on January 11th, 2022 at Bet365).

They last got their hands on the title in 2019 when they thumped Watford 6-0 in the FA Cup Final at Wembley. That was part of their domestic treble-winning season.

That was the sixth title for the Citizens in the tournament but their only one in the last decade.

Other big contenders and FA Cup Odds

Arsenal have won four of the last eight editions of the FA Cup but they were shocked in the Third Round as Nottingham Forest beat them at the Emirates.

Manchester United are a quote of 10/1 outright in FA Cup odds * (odds recorded at 18:04 GMT on January 11th, 2022 at Bet365).

Targeting some silverware surely has to be on the mind of interim boss Ralf Rangnick, and his Red Devils host Middlesbrough in the next round.

Chelsea have won a third of the last fifteen editions of the FA Cup, the last title coming for the Blues in 2018.

But the Londoners have reached four of the last five finals now and therefore should pose an obvious threat from 6/1 * (odds recorded at 18:04 GMT on January 11th, 2022 at Bet365).

Chelsea have a home tie against Plymouth in the Fourth Round.

Liverpool are at the same price currently as Chelsea, as the Reds look to secure their first FA Cup title since 2006 when they beat West Ham in a penalty shoot-out. It’s home field advantage for Liverpool in the Fourth Round against Cardiff.

Our betting prediction:
Chelsea Outright

Who are the reigning FA Cup Champions?

Leicester won last season’s FA Cup, defying some underdog odds to get the better of Chelsea at Wembley.

It was a 1-0 success for the Foxes, with Youri Tielemans getting the only goal of the game to give Leicester their first ever FA Cup crown.

The Foxes visit Nottingham Forest in the Fourth Round and Leicester are a quote of 14/1 to make a successful title defence* (odds recorded at 18:04 GMT on January 11th, 2022 at Bet365).
