Are there favourites that are interesting for a betting tip in the FA Cup?

The circle of favourites in the FA Cup is traditionally big. Again, and again underclass clubs make to one of the big club troubles. Especially if the team is enjoying "small" home advantage and support of frenetic fans. Premier League clubs can lose or draw only if their players do not give 100 %. A replay in one of the biggest and modern arenas of the Premier League is an extra motivation for any amateur or sub-standard player.

When are Handicap, Double Chance bet and Draw No Bet interesting?

In our betting tips, we often deal separately with a handicap, double chance bets and Draw no bets. With these betting variants, the odds - and subsequently the profit - can be increased in especially tight matches or matches of favourite teams. In our Betting school, what you can find here on bettingformat.com, you can find more about different types of bets.

Handicap bet
You can place a handicap bet if one team is much better than the other and probability of their win is very high. In this case, the outsider team gets one or even two goals advantage before the match starts. You win your betting tip if the favorite makes it through also with a disadvantage. Handicap bets are particularly interesting when a Premier League team meets in the FA Cup a third- or fourth- division or even lower- playing club. Then the underclass club gets credited one or two goals advantage before the match. The big club then has to win 2:0 if you want to win a handicap bet +1.

Double chance bet
A double chance bet pays off if two equal teams play against each other. In this case, a winning bet appears as no so secure. With a double chance you can reduce the risk, you make of a 3-way bet almost a 2-way bet. With this betting type, you can play 1/X, X/2 or even 1/2. Of course, you will not get such good odds as with 1, 2, X bet. If two equal teams are playing, the odds are still 1.50 or higher even with a double chance.

Draw no bet
A draw no bet is recommended if two relatively equal strong teams meet and you want to bet bit worse one. If the match ends in a draw, you will get your money back. But if you have won the bet, you can look forward to a relatively high winning. Similar to a double chance, draw no bet minimizes your risk, but you do not have to count with such high deductions when you win.
