Is FA Cup 5th Round Most Punter Friendly Ever?

Leicester’s progression into round five of the FA Cup, meant that there is potentially the most punter friendly set of fixtures ever seen in the competition – on paper, certainly. It is just over 23/1 for all eight to win at the first time of asking, while it is 12/5 that all eight make it through via any means.


“Every tie in this round is a massive mismatch and despite the amount of shocks we have seen in the competition so far this term there is no doubting what the top FA Cup acca will be in a couple of weeks’ time,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
