This is why the experience of our experts plays an important role. They also analyze previous matches and making research on how teams have played in previous encounters.

Then there are teams, for example, league leaders, are much stronger than the opponents, but they can’t win against one specific team for some reason. We also provide for you such information.

Betting options recommended in a Betting Tips

If we write an analysis with a forecast for a Coupe de France match, we always try to suggest and recommend you around three-four betting variants. We also make sure that we do not let our personal feelings be included and to be objective all the time. If the feeling is included, you will read it in the betting tips. Of course, the number of recommended tips also depends on how many betting markets the bookmakers offer. As we wrote this text, there were between 3 and 101 betting options for a French football cup match. Normally we always try to determine which team will win, it means we always offer a Tip 1 or Tip 2. We also often advise an over/under bet - for example: Will be over 2.5 or under 3.5 goals scored? Which team wins which halftime? - it is also often a betting tip. Both teams score? – it is almost a classic betting variant. Sometimes, however, special bets or “double chance”, as well as a “draw no bet” are interesting, but we'll take a closer look at that in the following text.

What long-term bets on the French Football Cup are available?

Of course, a long-term bet can be made on the Coupe de France match. As a classic long-term bet, you should consider the possible cup winner bet. You will rarely read such a betting tip from us. But we would like to advise you that such longtime bet is best to place at the beginning of the season when the odds are the best. However, such a betting market, as we are describing it in this section, is also any bet placed on a pre-match. These are, of course, always possible and sometimes they are very lucrative, especially if they are connected with favorites.

Use longterm bets to win more

When is “Handicap”, “Double Chance” and “Draw no bet” offered?

We always only recommend these betting markets if either a team is much better or teams are equal. We do not exactly explain in details these betting markets on this page, because we have the betting school on bettingformat.com. First of all, you should know that a “double chance” or a “draw no bet” is only valid for the regular playing time.

  • Betting tip - Handicap bet
    A handicap bet is interesting for the French Football Cup when a team is clearly over or under. Because then starts the weaker team with one or more goals advantage, which is added to the final result. For example, if a match ends 1:2 and you have place handicap bet 1:0, the final score on the betting slip would be 2:2.
  • Betting tip - Double chance
    This betting market is really great. You can win both in a draw and a victory of your team (in regular playing time). If we guess for this betting tip, you can assume that both teams are equal, or we suspect an outsider victory.
  • Betting tip - Draw no bet
    As the name suggests, there is no bet on a draw. This means that if there is a draw, you will get your wager back and you only win if your team wins the match. We always recommend this betting type only if both teams play equally or if we suspect an outsider victory and the odds for the double chance are too lucrative in our opinion. Whereby such information you always find under the bet tips and forecasts of an analysis.

Are special bets profitable?

Of course, special bets are always exciting and lucrative. Usually when a team is clearly leading. A possible special bet would be: placement on the team that scored the last goal, who wins both halves of the match, a betting tip on the match's progress, a home win and cash back as well as away win and cash back. It is also a bet on which team scores more goals.

Summary - Betting tips explanation

The Coupe de France or French Cup is certainly a very exciting event. Betting Tips are probably interesting from the last 32 teams or from the sixteen-finals, as well as teams from the two strongest French leagues are getting involved. Further, there may be derbies in this competition, which otherwise would not exist. All in all, some betting tips are exciting in this cup competition, as it always comes back to outsider victories, when stronger league teams underestimate the weaker (on paper) team.
