The FA Cup is the most famous trophy in English football and with such a rich history, the FA Cup Final is one of the most highly-anticipated fixtures on the calendar.
What makes the FA Cup special is the David vs Goliath clashes that it creates. There are no seeded teams for FA Cup betting, it is just an open draw for each round which can lead to upsets like a League Two side eliminating a Premier League club.
Lower-division teams dream of pulling a big name like Manchester United or Liverpool out of the hat. It’s what football dreams are made of.
Manchester City are the reigning FA Cup holders. Their victory at Wembley in last season’s Final against Manchester United, was part of their historic treble-winning season in which Pep Guardiola’s men collected the Premier League and Champions League betting titles too.
Man City are back among the front-runners in FA Cup odds to lift the trophy aloft at Wembley Stadium in May 2024. The other leading Premier League clubs in FA Cup betting like Arsenal, Man Utd, Liverpool and Chelsea will also be among the main contenders in this season's competition.

Part of the excitement and challenge of betting on the FA Cup is the randomness of the draw. While punters can jump into the FA Cup odds for the outright winner market well ahead of the tournament, it will remain unknown what kind of draw that team will get.
The Third Round Proper of the FA Cup is when the action gets even more exciting. That’s when the Premier League and Championship clubs enter the draw. Before that, there is a long qualification process for lower-ranked teams to get to that stage.
When the draw for each round on the Road to Wembley is made, it’s a good time to reassess the lay of the land in the FA Cup betting markets. Punters can always select alternative options like To Reach Final and FA Cup Top Goalscorer markets alongside picking who the outright winner will be.
