FA Cup Round 3 Betting Tips & Previews
Arsenal vs Tottenham
One of the most anticipated games for Saturday, is the London Derby between Arsenal and Tottenham. Earlier in September, both teams met in a game for the Premier League where Arsenal won with 1-0. In the most recent games, Arsenal won against Cardiff with 2-0, while Tottenham managed to beat Manchester United on Old Trafford 2-1. Three to two victories in favor of the Gunners in the last 5 games and an overall record of W19-D19-L8 since 1993. Current performance rating of Arsenal is 57%, winning 3 of the last 7 games, while Tottenham’s is 64%, winning 4 of the last 7 games. Odds for the Spurs to get an away victory here are @ 3.75, same as the odds for a draw. Arsenal has already managed to get a victory on Emirates against Tottenham this season, and we expect the Gunners to get one here as well.
Prediction: Arsenal to win @ 2.05 with bet365.
Newcastle vs Cardiff
Newcastle meets Cardiff in this Round 3 of FA Cup. Current performance rating for the Magpies of 50% winning 3, drawing 1 and losing 3 of the last 7 games. Cardiff’s performance rating is 29% winning just 1 of the last 7 games, losing 4 of those. Overall record of Newcastle against Cardiff W3-D0-L1, from which only one of those games has been on St James Park, a victory with 5-1 for Newcastle. Odds for the away victory @ 5.50, while the draw is priced @ 4.00. This shouldn’t be a hard game for Newcastle, who have been struggling to get a victory in the past 2 Premier League rounds, but would most likely bounce with a victory here against an opponent, that hasn’t won a game in 4 matches, losing 3 of those.
Prediction: Newcastle to win @ 1.70 with bet365.

Manchester United vs Swansea
Manchester United meets Swansea in this Round 3 of the FA Cup. After the loss to Tottenham at home, the team’s performance record has dropped to 86%, winning 6 in the last 7 games. Swansea are struggling this season, winning none of the last 7 games, losing 4 of those and drawing 3. Overall record for Manchester United against this opponent W4-D1-L0 and all of those games have been from the Premier League. The only logical outcome from this match is a victory for Manchester United. The odds for the away victory @ 8.00 and draw @ 4.75 are promising but highly unlikely that the Red Devils would allowed a second loss on Old Trafford especially against an opponent in such a poor condition.
Prediction: Manchester United to win @ 1.44 with bet365.
Derby County vs Chelsea
Derby County meets Chelsea, in this Round 3 of the FA Cup. Chelsea is one of the few teams that wouldn’t face a top flight teams. Current performance rating for the Blues is 79%, the same percentage as Derby County. Both teams have met 14 times, where Chelsea has won 10 games, lost 2 and drawn 2. Four victories and a draw in the past 5 games, and all of those games have been for the Premier League. As the bookmakers we also think that Chelsea is a favorite for this match and anything but an away victory here would be a surprise. Though the odds of 8.50 for a home victory and 5.25 for a draw are very rewarding, we doubt, Jose Mourinho’s team would allow a loss here.
Prediction: Chelsea to win @ 1.40 with bet365.
