Betting on soccer lines is an exciting experience because there are several unexpected outcomes, and the FA Cup is no different.
I’ll give a couple of examples to spark inspiration for your 2022-2023 FA Cup bets. The easy way out is to pick Manchester City or Liverpool as they look like the best two clubs in the country after the most recent Premier League season.
The competition of the FA Cup offers entertainment and the classic underdog story.
As a neutral fan, I’ll give some examples of potential bets for the football fan for the 2022-2023 FA Cup. For example, you can take a stab at Arsenal FC, which has the most FA Cups with 14 in their history, or Newcastle United, which has a major cash injection with their new owners. Another strategy is to go with a team with a trophy drought but an elite manager.
Antonio Conte will be looking to potentially challenge for the Premier League but also win a trophy with world-class players like Harry Kane and Son in the attack.
The betting strategy for the FA Cup depends on current form from previous fixtures, the history of clubs, injury and health protocols, and also the World Cup taking place in the 2022-2023 season.
The most important players are from the traditional big six. Manchester City are the clear favorites as they’ve signed Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez and still look to replace Fernandinho in the summer transfer window.
Liverpool will follow them in the second position as they’ve signed Benfica youngster Darwin Nunez.
A notable departure from Liverpool is Sadio Mane to Bayern Munchen. However, they added a dynamic winger in Luis Diaz in the January transfer window and still hold Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota.
In addition, Tottenham Hotspur will look to win a trophy with Antonio Conte in charge of Harry Kane and Son leading the line.
Arsenal will look to capture another FA Cup under Mikel Arteta, and Manchester United will look to bring back a trophy to Old Trafford with Cristiano Ronaldo.
Chelsea will also be looking to get revenge after losing in penalties to Liverpool this year under new ownership.
The other notable teams in the top of the outrights list are West Ham United, who have been challenging for European places over the last few years, and Newcastle United, who are eager to push on for European places with a splash of cash.
Each team will look to strengthen in the summer transfer window to increase their chances to win the oldest trophy in English football.
The other different betting options and the most popular type of betting related to the FA Cup is the potential for prop bets, specifically during the later rounds. By that stage, it is typically the top clubs facing off against each other displayed with the top players.
In addition to moneyline bets, BetUS is also introducing betting on statistics in games like corners, number of shots, number of goals scored, etc.
