FA Cup odds: Wolves and United to go the distance in 110/1 quarter-final acca

FA Cup betting preview and predictions

The FA Cup quarter-finals take place this weekend when two Championship clubs are in with a chance of making it to Wembley.

Swansea have the most difficult task as they host Manchester City who are 4/5 favourites in the FA Cup winner odds, while Millwall, the lowest ranked team left in the competition, are at home to Brighton on Sunday afternoon.

There are two all-Premier League ties on Saturday with Watford and Crystal Palace getting the party started in the early kick-off, and Manchester United, 7/2 in the FA Cup odds to win the competition, meet Wolves under the Molineux lights to conclude what should be a great day of action.

We have FA Cup betting tips on all four ties and if you want to back our predictions in a football accumulator the odds are nearly 110/1 which also qualify for a 7.5% bonus as part of our acca bonus offer.

Watford vs Crystal Palace (Sat, 12.15pm, BT Sport 2)

These two teams meet for the third time this season with Watford winning both Premier League fixtures 2-1 home and away.

The Hornets finally landed a home draw having won all three ties away from Vicarage Road at Woking, Newcastle and QPR.

Neither team have conceded a goal in this season's competition but we expect that to change on Saturday lunchtime when Javi Gracia's side should pull through at 11/8 in the FA Cup odds.

This weekend's best bets

Swansea vs Manchester City (Sat, 5.20pm, BT Sport 2)

Swansea's hopes of an FA Cup upset will not have been helped by watching Manchester City's 7-0 rout of Schalke in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

City have racked up 16 goals from their three wins against Rotherham, Burnley and Newport, so we're on board Pep Guardiola's side to overcome a -2 handicap and win at 23/20.

Wolves vs Manchester United (Sat, 7.55pm, BBC 1)

Wolves proved to be a thorn in the side of top-six teams once more last weekend as they went desperately close to completing the double over Chelsea only for Eden Hazard to score a last-minute equaliser at Stamford Bridge.

No team has taken more points against top-six sides than Wolves this season - other than those within that elite group - having won two and drawn four of their 11 matches.

Wolves picked up a point at Old Trafford in September and are a tempting 11/5 in the FA Cup odds to win this quarter-final, but instead we are predicting extra time will be needed after a score draw at the bigger price of 10/3, with all four of their draws against the big clubs finishing 1-1 this season.

Feature match previews for this weekend

Millwall vs Brighton (Sun, 2pm, BBC 1)

Brighton face their third Championship side of the competition as they make the relatively short trip to south London for the clash with Millwall, who are 50/1 in the FA Cup winner odds.

The Lions have already taken one Premier League scalp in an enthralling clash with Everton in which they twice trailed but Murray Wallace's close-range finish secured a 3-2 win in the fourth minute of stoppage time.

However, Brighton to win and both teams to score at 4/1 wraps up our FA Cup betting preview, bearing in mind four of Millwall's six matches in both cup competitions have seen goals at both ends, while Brighton conceded against West Brom and Derby, the first in a replay at The Hawthorns.
