A record of 763 teams competed at one stage or another in 2012. The tournament consists of 12 randomly drawn rounds followed by the semi-final and final. There is no seeding, but higher ranked teams receive a bye and only participate in the later rounds of the competition.  

There are generally a few major upsets every year which makes for remarkable viewing and betting opportunities. Betting on this competition allows for some David and Goliath sentiments. And your returns can be massive.

FA Cup Game Schedule

Below you will find the schedule for the FA Cup. Take the time to study it as multiples can be a great way to make money on the FA Cup. [+]

A close eye on the schedule can help you predict potential big matchups further on in the competition. Keeping on top of this and each club’s league fixtures can help you take advantage of early prices and back a side that may not be perceived as the favorite, but who has a much less intensive schedule than their opponents. 

This works particularly well when a top Championship club or a lower Premier League side is up against one of the elite sides in contention for the Premier League title and Champions League.

How To Make Money Betting On FA Cup

The FA Cup will likely see some very lopsided odds in later rounds when Premier League clubs are pitted against lower-level clubs. 

It is best to stick to betting the over/under line for these games. Many of the bigger clubs will play weakened sides, so look for Premier League teams who are taking the competition seriously and fielding strong teams. On the other hand, there are plenty of opportunities to back the underdog when top teams decide to rest a few key players.

The last time a non-league side beat a club of some stature was in 2012/13 fourth round when Luton Town beat Premier League side Norwich. Before that, you would have to go back to 1989 when Sutton United beat Coventry City.

Arsenal and Manchester United have both won the competition more than anyone else. Manchester United tied for the lead by winning the competition in 2016 and Arsenal got their hands on the trophy for the 11th and 12th time by winning the competition back to back in 2014 and 2015. 

The strength and depth of the big clubs allows them to field their second or third team and still have a very realistic chance of winning. But this is the opportune time to back the underdog. 

Hold off on your wagers until you know the line ups and focus on the spread and over under market. When backing the moneyline, consider betting multiples to increase your odds and potential returns.

Look no further if you are looking for somewhere to bet on the FA Cup. All of the sports books below are ready, willing and able to take your bets. Just choose one that you like and away you go.
