F.A. Cup Round 4 Stand out fixtures, odds and tips

The F.A. Cup is famous for cup “upsets” – this is when a team in a lower division wins against a team in a higher division, the higher the team in the higher division the greater the upset or shock.

The 3rd, 4th and 5th rounds often produce one or two “upsets” or “shocks” and these are what we look for when selecting out bets in each round. These rounds also make for good accumulator bets too as some results can be more easily predicted.

With more even fixtures home advantage is often more important in a cup game than a league game so think about this when selecting from these fixtures.

The F.A. Cup 4th round games are to be played from the 26th to the 28th of January, 2018.

*The odds listed below are for “Win” results only.

“Stand out” Fixtures

There are no “stand-out” fixtures where big teams are drawn to play each other in this year’s fourth round but there are three All Premier League team fixtures, these are:

Southampton @ 1.85 vs Watford @ 4.33
Liverpool @ 1.28 vs West Brom @ 10.00
Chelsea @ 1.36 vs Newcastle @ 8.50

Possible Upsets

When choosing these fixtures it is usually the home team that causes the “upset” – this happened in the 3rd Round of the FA Cup this year when Nottingham Forest were at home and beat Arsenal, Coventry were at home and beat Stoke and Newport beat Leeds.

Yeovil @ 17.00 vs Manchester United @ 1.50
Peterborough @ 5.00 vs Leicester @ 1.61
Notts County @ 4.00 vs Swansea @ 1.95
Cardiff @ 10.00 vs Manchester City @ 1.28
Newport @ 17.00 vs Tottenham @ 1.17

Yeovil Town are one of the most famous “giant killing” teams in the English soccer – especially when they play at home. They have knocked out many big teams over the years in the FA Cup. This game will be televised live because of this.

Possible Accumulators

Very strong teams at home against lower league position opposition:

Home teams

All four teams to win accumulator at 10 points returns 44.56 points (profit is 34.56 points).

Any away teams from the “Possible upset” fixture list above:
