FA Cup betting at Ladbrokes
The FA Cup is the oldest and arguably the best football competition in the world and at Ladbrokes we love the thrills and spills of this much-loved season-long tournament.
Nothing quite beats the excitement of the third round in January when the minnows rub shoulders with the giants and the prospect of a giant-killing is on the cards.
There have been plenty of shocks over the years and often it is these games that are remembered more than the FA Cup winners!
Crawley, Wrexham, Bradford, Hereford, MK Dons, Sutton, York, Halifax, Oldham and Blyth Spartans are just some of the teams to have beaten illustrious opponents in this competition over the years and as you would imagine we have the latest odds in the FA Cup betting from all the rounds and the qualifiers too!
If you are interested in FA Cup betting, then look no further than Ladbrokes because we have a wide range of markets available.
Whether you’re looking for the latest FA Cup winner odds or just like to pick out a potential upset from the third round onwards, check out what we have to offer on this historic competition which was first played in 1871, only eight years after the rules of the game were unified by the Football Association.
There are six qualifying rounds before the tournament proper gets under way in November as hundreds of clubs all the way down to the 10th level of the English Football League pyramid hope to become one of 32 teams to reach the first round.
League One and League Two enter the competition alongside non-league clubs at this stage, but the real excitement comes when the draw is made for the third round.
That’s when part-timers playing for non-league outfits are biting their nails at the prospect of playing at Old Trafford or Anfield, which can be a lifeline for some clubs because of the money generated from TV rights.
As you would expect we have FA Cup qualifying betting in the build-up to November, but even before a ball is kicked in the extra preliminary rounds in August, we have FA Cup odds on all the main contenders to lift the trophy in May.
If you enjoy FA Cup betting, let’s take a look at what we have to offer for this great competition.
FA Cup odds
We’re not just about FA Cup final odds at Ladbrokes because we cover most of the qualifying rounds where you can find your favourite markets such as match result, both teams to score, over/under goals and correct score.When the first-round proper gets under way, we have many more options in terms of FA Cup odds such as the goalscorer markets in which you can pick out a player to break the deadlock, get on the scoresheet, hit the back of the net at least twice or at much bigger odds bag a hat-trick.
And don’t forget we also have an in-play option with FA Cup ties so you can bet on matches in running.
Maybe the favourites have fallen behind in the early stages of a second-round tie, but you fancy them to launch a comeback and win.
In terms of FA Cup betting, the odds on them winning from behind will be greater than they were at kick-off, so sometimes it’s worth seeing how the match is developing.
Perhaps you had a sneaky feeling the underdogs would get a result against one of the bigger teams and you fancy them to hold on once they’ve taken the lead. The odds will be lower than if you had backed them from the outset, but they have a one-goal advantage and the onus is on their opponents to attack.
As with all our football markets, we offer a range of FA Cup betting odds on each team or both in our #GetAPrice option in which a combination of outcomes must come good for a winning bet.
For example, we may offer a price on a team to win or draw, both teams to score in the second half and either team to win the match. Alternatively, in the ‘both teams’ section there will be a range of options such as a goal in both halves and the match to be drawn at a set price.
You can also create your own combinations with Bet Builder in which the more options you choose the higher the odds.
Here, you may decide on both teams to score, Team A to be leading after 30 minutes and the match to end up as a draw. The decision is yours!
