FA Cup Stats

Over the last five seasons just over 52% of FA Cup matches have finished with at least three goals scored. This accounts for only regulation 90 minutes played and not extra time. We can see then that the average FA Cup match sees more goals than any other English football division with the Premier League the only other English competition exceeding the 52% mark. The average goals scored in FA Cup matches the last five seasons is 2.82 goals.

League Over 2.5 Goals Under 2.5 Goals
FA Cup 52.3% 47.7%
Premier League 52.0% 48.0%
Championship 48.6% 51.4%
League One 49.4% 50.6%
League Two 47.7% 52.3%
National League 48.4% 51.6%

Home field advantage in FA Cup matches has been worth +0.31 goals per match the last five tournaments. This is roughly the same as the Premier League and the Championship with the three lower tiers of English football seeing a slighter advantage.

League Home Win % Ave. Home Points Won Home Advantage (Goals per game)
FA Cup 44.5% +0.31
Premier League 45.8% 1.61 +0.35
Championship 43.3% 1.58 +0.32
League One 42.5% 1.54 +0.25
League Two 42.4% 1.53 +0.23
National League 42.2% 1.52 +0.25

While the FA Cup has seen a greater number of goals scored across the last five seasons than any other English competition, that has not translated to the Both Teams To Score market, where the FA Cup is the only competition below 50%, while being second only to the Championship for fewest scoreless matches.

League Both Teams Score – Yes Scoreless Matches
FA Cup 49.4% 8.1%
Premier League 50.4% 7.6%
Championship 52.2% 8.2%
League One 52.4% 7.8%
League Two 52.2% 7.5%
National League 51.6% 7.5%

Bet On The FA Cup

So you have decided to bet on FA Cup games. Congratulations, you are going to have a lot of fun – and thanks to our free FA Cup betting tips – the games will be even more intense.

The first ever FA Cup competition was held in 1871, won by a long-dissolved London team called Wanderers, who beat the Royal Engineers 1-0 in front of a crowd of 2,000. The FA Cup quickly gained in popularity, and the 1893 final was watched by a crowd of 45,000. In 1923, Bolton Wanderers 2-0 win over West Ham drew a Wembley live gate of 126,000, still a record today.

The instant gratification of the cup made it more significant to many fans than the league, especially as the one live club match screened on English TV until the early 1990s was the FA Cup final. Since the advent of Sky TV, the breakaway Premier League, the FA Cup has often struggled to maintain its relevance, but in recent years it has become fashionable again, with even the very best Premier League teams fielding full strength sides in respect of such a hallowed competition.
At bettingexpert we certainly respect the FA Cup, and that is reflected by the high standard of our expert free FA Cup betting tips!

When consistently betting on any sport it is advisable to employ a sports betting strategy. The Bettingexpert Academy can help with this. Similarly, bettingexpert’s FA Cup Betting Guide is detailed and concise.

So if you are new to FA Cup betting but keen to partake in it on a regular basis, here are a few pointers from our FA CUP betting guide:

  • Only Bet When There’s Value – It’s common-sense, yet many forget the most basic rule in sports betting: Don’t waste money on bets that aren’t likely to come off, or don’t earn you anything if they do.
  • Specialise – FA Cup offers a multitude of betting markets. Find out what market you enjoy the most and have the most success with, and focus your attention on it.
  • Have Several Bookmaker Accounts – Not all bookies will offer the best odds for your bet, having several accounts ensures you get the most bang for your buck.
  • Keep A Record – Maintaining a record of your prior wagers enables you to see where you might have gone wrong, and also allows you to get a clear picture of what markets you excel at.

More specific, FA CUP related advice includes:

Do Your Preseason Research

The more you know about the FA Cup, the luckier you will become in your FA Cup betting. Preseason, find out which teams have strengthened their squads and which have lost key players.

Check Head-to-Head Matchups

One of the best ways of forecasting a result is by examining the previous Head-to-Head matches. By seeing the previous six results between two teams that are scheduled to meet, one can often form a solid opinion as to the outcome of this latest meeting.

Learn To Spot The Upset

If a team is contesting the Premier League title, or chasing a Champions League spot, they may field a weakened team in the cup. This gives lesser teams the chance to pull off the upset.

Home & Away

Normally it’s beneficial for a team to play at their home ground, but a sequence of home defeats can turn the most loyal fan base into a baying mob. When that happens a team will start playing better on the road than at home.

Bookmakers For Betting On FA Cup

  • Consistently Competitive Odds
  • A Wide Range Of Betting Markets
  • All Major Competitions Covered
  • Extensive In-Play Betting Markets
