FA Cup Football Betting Stats: 5th-8th Jan 2018

FA Cup football betting stats

After the busy festive period we take a break from the Premier League action this weekend as the attention turns to the FA Cup and the Third round.

Yes, this is the stage of the competition that the ‘big gun’ teams enter the mix. We’ve 64 teams still with the dream of making it to Wembley in May, but at we enter this set of fixtures it’s the Premier League leaders – Man City – that head the outright betting market as they go in search of their sixth win in this competition.

The current champions – Arsenal – might have something to say about it though as they look to maintain their status as the FA Cups most successful side with 13 victories – one ahead on Man Utd on 12.

Plenty to get stuck into and we are sure to see the odd giant-killing, while with three all-Premier League encounters then at the very least we are going to see three top-flight sides exiting the competition – Liverpool v Everton, Man City v Burnley and Brighton v Crystal Palace are the three games in question.

As always here at JUICESTORM we’ve got the best of the games covered from a head-to-head angle, plus our best betting option on each match based on the stats – So, let’s get cracking!
