FA Cup Third Round Betting Guide: Swindon Town v Manchester City

Swindon of the second division (so the 4th tier) would pull off one of the great giant killings if they beat a Manchester City side eight points clear of the Premier League at time of writing. It would be the 3rd round of the FA Cup to beat all third rounds of the FA Cup!

FA Cup 2022 third round odds


home win: 41
draw: 13
away win: 1.1

FA Cup third round prediction Away win (obvs)
FA Cup third round tip Over 2.5 away goals at FA Cup third round odds of 1.8 – even if City rest two teams, that has to be free money, surely?

FA Cup Third Round Betting Guide: Burnley v Huddersfield

This has Eagle’s “upset” alarm bell ringing.

Yes Premiership Burnley should beat better than average Championship side Huddersfield.

But Burnley are deep in relegation trouble, will want to rest players to focus on the Premier League rather than the 3rd round of the FA Cup, they only have one league win all season and they are struggling for goals.

Huddersfield will bring plenty of support and will keep it tight to force extra time (important fact for FA Cup 3rd round betting guide aficionados: there are no FA Cup third round replays this season).

FA Cup third round odds

home win: 1.65
draw: 4.3
away win: 6.5

FA Cup third round prediction – Draw
FA Cup third round tip – These FA Cup 3rd round predictions are less scientific than league pro tips and predictions as there is just less data. So we aren’t saying this will definitely be a draw, but at such high FA Cup 3rd round odds, it has to be worth a flutter.

FA Cup Third Round Betting Guide: Mansfield Town v Middlesbrough

Mansfield who are 9th in the 4th tier at time of writing face a team likely to be in the top nine of the second tier.

Middlesbrough are in great form.

FA Cup third-round odds

home win: 6
draw: 4
away win: 1.7

FA Cup third round prediction – Away win
FA Cup third round tip – Value in the bet

FA Cup Third Round Betting Guide: Millwall v Crystal Palace

A highlight of this FA Cup 3rd round betting guide: a London derby between Championship and Premiership and upset possibilities.

Millwall’s fans create an intimidating atmosphere while Palace’s “ultras” will add to the tension.

Palace are excellent at home but can get rolled over away.

Millwall aren’t spectacular but can be hard to beat.

FA Cup third round odds

home win: 3.69
draw: 3.47
away win: 2.2

FA Cup third round prediction – Away win
FA Cup third round tip – This could be an upset but Palace are better team than Burnley, for example, also facing FA Cup third round danger. The odds are decent too. Look at Ebere Eze anytime goalscorer: he is likely to start in the FA Cup third round, keen to score against the team that released him.

FA Cup Third Round Betting Guide: Charlton v Norwich

Typically a team struggling in the Premier League would probably be tipped to lose in an FA Cup 3rd round betting guide.

But Norwich are so far gone, the manager will calculate he has to get some feelgood factor working, even in the FA Cup third round against third tier Charlton.

Also, while Norwich look consistently outclassed in the Premiership, whenever they play EFL clubs they look quite formidable.

FA Cup third-round odds

home win: 4.75
draw: 3.8
away win: 1.7

FA Cup third round prediction – Away win
FA Cup third round tip – Just enough value in the bet

FA Cup Third Round Betting Guide: Chelsea v Chesterfield

cl-chels-EB

Like City’s match, this would be a shock of historic proportions if Chelsea lost.

But I wouldn’t bet on it – even at 71, lovely though such an FA Cup winning bet would be!

FA Cup third round odds

home win: 1.07
draw: 17
away win: 71

FA Cup third round prediction – Home win
FA Cup third round tip – Over 3.5 home goals at 1.91 – standby for an orgy of FA Cup goals

FA Cup Third Round Betting Guide: Leicester v Watford

FA Cup third round odds

home win: 1.65
draw: 4.2
away win: 5.5

FA Cup third round prediction – Home win
FA Cup third round tip – Watford are in serious Premiership trouble and will see this as a distraction. Leicester have the goals to win comfortably. Over 2.5 goals at FA Cup third round odds of 1.83

FA Cup Third Round Betting Guide: Liverpool v Shrewsbury

liverpool betting tips

Given Liverpool score for fun against Premiership defences, even without Salah and Mane they should score loads.

FA Cup third round odds

home win: 1.08
draw: 10
away win: 19

FA Cup third round prediction – Home win
FA Cup third round tip – Liverpool -3 handicap at FA Cup 3rd round odds of 2.5. Nice. Also over 2.5 home (ie Liverpool) goals at FA Cup 3rd round odds of 1.44

FA Cup Third Round Betting Guide: Newcastle v Cambridge United

We thought Cambridge would do better this season but are 17th in League One. While Newcastle will be more focused on the January transfer window than the world’s oldest cup, this FA Cup third round betting guide can’t see beyond a home win for the Prem side – even Newcastle.

FA Cup third round odds

home win: 1.34
draw: 5.8
away win: 11

FA Cup third round prediction – Home win
FA Cup third round tip – Enough value (just) to bet the straight home win

FA Cup Third Round Betting Guide: Port Vale v Brentford

Brentford are very professional and we can’t see them slipping up, although they have a smaller squad than rivals so their second string team might be weak-ish.

Brentford will respect their opponent: 5th in League Two, the kind of league position not so alien to Brentford a few years ago.

FA Cup third round odds

home win: 9.6
draw: 5
away win: 1.4

FA Cup third round prediction – Home win
FA Cup third round tip – Enough value in the away win

FA Cup Third Round Betting Guide: Swansea v Southampton

You can see why some FA Cup third round betting guides would predict an upset here. However, Swansea have disappointed this season while Southampton are getting stronger. Nice odds here – bet it.

FA Cup third round odds

home win: 3.27
draw: 3.55
away win: 2.3

FA Cup third round prediction – Away win
FA Cup third round tip – Great odds the away win at FA Cup 3rd round odds of 2.3

FA Cup Third Round Betting Guide: Tottenham v Morecombe

fa cup winner

In case you don’t watch Morecombe as much as you’d like, they are 21st in League One. At time of writing, they are conceding an average of two goals a game – in the third tier.

Away to Spurs? This could get messy…

FA Cup third round odds

home win: 1.06
draw: 11
away win: 21

FA Cup third round prediction – Home win
FA Cup third round tip – No value in the home win. Over 3.5 goals at FA Cup third round odds of 1.83 is the value bet.

FA Cup Third Round Betting Guide: West Brom v Brighton

OK at last a proper contest: Brom are pushing for promotion and were a Premier League side last season. Until a recent uplift Brighton were looking at a dozen matches without a win.

Brighton are draw specialists and we could easily see this ending even after 90 minutes.

FA Cup third round odds

home win: 3.39
draw: 3.5
away win: 2.3

FA Cup third round prediction – Draw
FA Cup third round tip – Draw is good value. Alternatively draw no bet Brighton at FA Cup third round odds of 1.63

FA Cup Third Round Betting Guide: Hull v Everton

So here we are going to stick our necks out and predict a major upset.

Mostly we have gone conservative in our FA Cup 3rd round betting guide and predicted triumph for the Premiership club.

Not here.

Everton don’t take cup competitions (early rounds) that seriously and were outplayed being knocked out of the EFL Cup by QPR.

They are on a really poor run, albeit improving.

And Hull are quietly winning in the Championship, have been on a decent run and are hard to beat at home at the moment.

Note: we are not saying Hull will definitely win, just that at these odds there is a decent chance and it is well worth a bet.

FA Cup third round odds

home win: 3.85
draw: 3.6
away win: 2.1

FA Cup third round prediction – Home win
FA Cup third round tip – Bet on the FA Cup shock at great odds of 3.85
