Arguably the greatest weekend in club football is almost upon us, and to celebrate, we’ve priced up a whole range of specials for you to get your teeth into.
The Emirates FA Cup Third Round draw has certainly left plenty of potential for upsets. And there’s one concerning the Premier League’s Top Six that looks very tempting indeed…
At least one of the Top Six to go out this weekend – 4/5
They may all fancy their chances in this year’s competition, but there’s certainly the potential for one of the top-flight’s big boys to face an early exit.
Man City travel to West Ham, as do Arsenal to Preston, while Man United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham each host Reading, Plymouth, Peterborough and Aston Villa respectively.
Something’s got to give?
2 or more Non-League teams to progress to the Fourth Round – 2/1
With five sides outside of the top four divisions still standing in the competition, we wouldn’t be backing against two or more of them progressing to the next round in a hurry.
Barrow and Sutton United are the only two Non-League teams playing at home. But each of the Non-League quintet – which also includes Stourbridge, Eastleigh and Lincoln City – head into their fixtures with absolutely nothing to lose.
Not to mention they’ll have the backing of every neutral fan in the country.
7 or more Premier League teams to be eliminated – 5/6
This one may look unlikely at first glance. But it’s worth remembering that eight top-flight sides will be facing off against each other, meaning you’d only need three others to be eliminated for your bet to be a winner.
That may well happen, too. Crystal Palace are away at Bolton Wanderers, while Bournemouth and Southampton face tricky fixtures away at Millwall and Norwich respectively.
A hat-trick to be scored in the Third Round – 4/6
With 64 teams in action, there’s every chance that this could be your banker of the day.
We’ve already seen six hat-tricks in the Emirates FA Cup Proper so far – and that’s without the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Alexis Sanchez, Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero on display.
