The FA Cup is one of the highlights of the English football campaign and the latest football betting odds ahead of 2019/20 will show more markets as the season draws closer.
Widely regarded as the oldest club competition on the planet, the FA Cup was first held in 1871/72 – an incredible 148 years ago. With the chance for non-League clubs to qualify for the tournament, the FA Cup tends to throw up plenty of thrills and spills. In 2018/19, that was not the case as Manchester City won 6-0 against Watford at Wembley Stadium to complete an unprecedented English treble.
888sport are also able to offer betting odds on the Premier League, Championship and other major English domestic divisions. English football is incredibly popular and most bettors will be betting on the FA Cup and other competitions in 2019/20. At 7/2 in early FA Cup odds, Manchester City are hot favourites to lift the trophy for the second year in succession...
736 teams entered the 2018/19 FA Cup competition but only two teams could advance to the showpiece at Wembley Stadium. In its illustrious 148-year history, an incredible 43 clubs have lifted the famous FA Cup trophy – Arsenal are the most successful club in the country with 13 victories while Manchester United are a close second with 12 triumphs.
Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur have an excellent record when reaching the FA Cup final. In nine appearances, Spurs have lifted the crown eight times – their sole defeat coming against Coventry City back in 1987. As of June 2019, Tottenham are 7/1 third favourites in football betting odds to record a ninth FA Cup success at the end of the 2019/20 season.
Manchester City were rampant against Watford in the 2018/19 FA Cup final and it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see Pep Guardiola’s side reach the showpiece again next season. For Watford, it was a disappointing way to end a positive campaign – the Hornets had finished 11th in the Premier League and were comfortably clear of the relegation battle.
Four Premier League clubs were involved in this year’s semi-finals, with Manchester City edging past Brighton & Hove Albion while Watford completed one of the greatest FA Cup comebacks of all-time to defeat Wolverhampton Wanderers. Wolves will be back to fight another day though and 16/1 for the west Midlands side to lift the trophy is a good price.

More FA Cup betting odds will become available with 888sport as we get closer to the start of the 2019/20 campaign. In the meantime, you can follow the latest football news, betting tips and sport odds on the 888sport website.
Looking past Manchester City, Liverpool are a reasonable betting option at 6/1. The newly crowned European champions are consistent when it comes to knockout football and Jurgen Klopp’s side could push for FA Cup glory in 2019/20. Write Liverpool off at your peril.
Sergio Aguero is a decent pick to finish as the FA Cup top goal scorer next season. Playing for a club like Manchester City, Aguero should see plenty of chances fall his way and he is one of the most dangerous strikers in world football. Expect Aguero to light up the FA Cup again in 2019/20.
