FA Cup 3rd Round Replay Betting: Bournemouth v Wigan tops the list of potential upsets

There are eleven FA Cup third round ties yet to reach their conclusion and those remaining matches will be decided by replays on Tuesday and Wednesday evening. The competition is renowned worldwide for its 'David v Goliath' clashes and there looks to be the potential for a few upsets this week as teams bid to book their places in the fourth round.

Blackpool v Fulham

Tuesday night's match between Blackpool and Fulham certainly looks to have the potential for an upset and the bookies are wise to the possibility as Blackpool are priced 8/5 for the win and Fulham are 13/10 with Coral. The Seasiders have been short of form in the league as they sit 15th in the Championship but they will take great confidence from Premiership outfit Fulham's return of just two wins from their previous 15.

Bournemouth v Wigan

A buoyant Bournemouth take on struggling Wigan and despite being separated by the best part of two divisions, the League One side are only marginal outsiders at 6/4, while Wigan can be backed at 11/8. The two sides played out a 1-1 draw in the original match and the in-form Cherries deserved so much more. They drew 1-1 with Swindon on Saturday to equal their club record unbeaten run of 18 matches as Eddie Howe continues to work his magic since returning to the South Coast. Howe hasn't lost a game since he took over in October, when the club were 21st, and he will be confident of masterminding a win against the Premier League strugglers on Tuesday.

Leyton Orient v Hull

League One outfit Leyton Orient will be delighted to have earned a draw in the first match at Championship high-fliers Hull. Orient may be struggling in 15th place in League One and their home record of eight wins and six defeats from 15 matches hardly inspires confidence but they have only lost two of their last 14 in all competitions. They come up against a Hull side that suffered their first defeat in 10 at the weekend as they were stunned 3-1 at home by Sheffield Wednesday, with Coral pricing Orient 5/2 for the win and Hull 10/11 on.

Stoke v Crystal Palace

Premiership outfit Stoke have hit a bit of a rough patch form-wise as a 4-0 defeat at home to Chelsea at the weekend means they have now won just one of their last eight. The defeat also stripped them of their treasured record of being the only team to be unbeaten in the top-four leagues in England this season. Jonathan Walters was the architect of Stoke's downfall on Saturday as he scored two own goals and missed a penalty, with Coral bookmakers going 5/1 he makes amends and scores first on Tuesday. They were happy to take a 0-0 draw from the first match with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park and Palace are a 7/2 punt this week as they look to enhance their own run of one win in eight and book a fourth round clash with Manchester City.

Tuesday night's other matches includes Birmingham v Leeds, Brentford v Southend, MK Dons v Sheffield Wednesday, West Brom v QPR and Bolton will try to upset the odds at Sunderland. There are two live matches on Wednesday as Manchester United are odds on to beat West Ham, while there could be an upset of sorts at the Emirates.....

Arsenal v Swansea

It is open to debate how much of an upset this would be but from a betting perspective it would certainly rank as Swansea are currently available at 5/1. The Swans have already won 2-0 at the Emirates in the league this term and they arrive on the back of some impressive recent form as they are unbeaten in seven following a 2-0 Capital One Cup win at Chelsea last week and a 0-0 draw at Everton on Saturday. In contrast, Arsenal (4/9) were forced to play for 80 minutes with 10-men in their 2-0 home defeat to Man City on Sunday and they are now winless in three. Another defeat on Wednesday would increase the likelihood of another trophy-less season for Arsene Wenger's men.
