Who will win the FA Cup in 2017?

The race to make it to the finals of the FA Cup 2017 has really heated up!  Gone are the days when English football was dominated by a few big teams – now, even though the playing field is not really level, there is much greater competition. The ‘smaller” teams are really challenging for the top spots.

Last year the winner of the English Premier league was Leicester City. A team that people who are not followers of the EPL might have never heard of!

A tournament set up that like the FA cup is complex to guess the winner. Whether you are a professional gambler or just an occasional visitor to online gambling sites, because although the teams with a greater depth of talented players to select from are more likely to win (because they have greater resistance to the shocks brought about by injuries) the underdogs are playing for their lives in the competition, and often want it more than the big teams.

The FA Cup which admits more than 700 Football teams. The winner progressing to the group stages of the UEFA Europa League. This 2016-17 edition of the tournament is the 136th making it the oldest football tournament in the world. The current FA Cup started on 6 August 2016. A winner will be crowned on 27 May 2017.

As the FA Cup 2017 progresses into the final stages the teams that are left are still quite a numerous. The fifth round draws were just competed and the will winners advance to the 6th round – the quarter finals. Manchester United (the defending champions) will be looking to retain their title.

If we had to place a bet, we wouldn’t place an early bet regardless of the higher payouts offered. There are a lot of dynamics in English football. All these have to be taken into consideration before the final bet is placed. That unique ability to factor in all the possible scenarios is what sets apart successful gamblers from novices.
