2019 FA Cup Futures
With the field down to eight, here are updated FA Cup futures as listed on FanDuel NJ. Not surprisingly, Manchester City are the odds-on favorites.
|Manchester City -140||Manchester United +360||Watford +1100||Wolverhampton +1100|
|Brighton +1400||Crystal Palace +1400||Millwall +4800||Swansea +11000|
If you’re looking for value, an argument could be made that City will be shifting their focus towards a Champions League run and Premier League title chase, and may not field their top squad by the semis and finals. Wolverhampton is all-in on the FA Cup. The Wolves tend to play to the level of their opponent, having tied City and United in the Premier League, and defeated Liverpool in the FA Cup 3rd Round. There’s value at +1100.
The same could be said for Palace. They’ve defeated Wolves and City and have tied United this Premier League campaign. Getting +1400 for this capable (yet inconsistent) squad has ROI potential.
