Bet UK’s FA Cup Giant Killer Treble
The FA Cup 3rd round saw plenty of ‘giant killings’, with 10 teams being knocked out by lower league opposition. Oldham shocked Fulham, non league Barnet knocked out Sheffield United and Leicester couldn’t find a way past Newport as the magic of the cup was alive more than ever. The 4th round draw brought a few big ties, including Arsenal v Manchester United, however all eyes will be on the potential shocks. Bet UK have taken a look at 3 teams we’ve picked out for a potential giant killing, as well as offering a price boost on all 3 teams to win.
Portsmouth currently sit top of the table in League One and have already knocked out Championship Norwich in this year’s FA Cup run. Andre Green’s 94th minute goal at Carrow Road sent the 10 man Canaries flying out the cup and Portsmouth were rewarded with a home tie against QPR. QPR come into the game on the back of a 4 game winless run, including 2 defeats in their last 2 outings. In terms of FA Cup pedigree, this is the first time that QPR have reached the 4th round since 2013, when they were beaten 4-2 by MK Dons at home. Rangers are no stranger to an FA Cup defeat and Portsmouth will be hoping to carry that on this year. After all, it is only 10 years since Portsmouth were FA Cup finalists, just 2 years after going all the way and winning the cup.
West Brom have been one of the most exciting teams to watch in the Championship this season and almost always guarantee goals in their games. The Baggies sit 3rd in the Championship, with 57 goals and a +22 goal difference. Brighton on the other hand struggle for goals, having only scored 25 goals in the league this season, and have only scored more than once in one match since the start of December. With relegation still a real possibility for Brighton following a poor run of form, it’ll be surprising to see Chris Hughton take the FA Cup too seriously this year. With Dwight Gayle and Jay Rodriguez both in fine goalscoring form this season, expect them to give Brighton’s defence the runaround as they look to make the FA Cup 5th round.
Millwall’s ever impressive form at The Den coupled with Everton’s poor recent away results could easily result in an FA Cup shock in Saturday’s evening game. Neil Harris’ men have an impressive record in the FA Cup in recent years, including a quarter final run in the 16/17 season. In that run, Millwall beat top flight Bournemouth, Watford and Leicester City, despite being in League One at the time. On the other hand, this is only the second time in 5 years that Everton have managed to make it to the 4th round. Everton’s away form this year has been their main worry, with only 2 wins on the road for the Toffees.
