Man City and United head the FA Cup betting following fifth round draw

The year 2013 may forever be remembered as the 'year of the cup upsets' after an enthralling week of action in England's cup competitions. Firstly, Bradford and Swansea upset the odds to reach Wembley and the final of the Capital One Cup before the fourth round of the FA Cup got in on the 'giant killing' action as a number of so-called 'minnows' stunned their more illustrious opponents.

The likes of Oldham and Luton booked their places in the fifth round draw for the world's most prestigious competition, although it is two of the remaining 'big guns' who continue to head the outright FA Cup betting. Manchester City and Manchester United are joint-favourites at 5/2 with PaddyPower following the draw for the fifth round ties, which are due to be played during the weekend of the 16th and 17th February.

City have been drawn to play Leeds at the Etihad in what is one of the ties of the round. City, the 2010/11 FA Cup winners, edged past Stoke on Saturday and they will have to be on their guard against Neil Warnock's Championship side, who deservedly beat Tottenham 2-1 at Elland Road on Sunday afternoon.

United were far more comfortable winners in their fourth round tie as they beat Fulham 4-1 at home and they have enjoyed the luck of the draw once more as they are at home in the next round. The Premier League leaders haven't won the FA Cup since the 2003/04 season and they will play Reading next up, with Brian McDermott's team currently 66/1 outsiders to lift the cup.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are third favourites at 9/2 and they are lucky to still be in the pot for the fifth round draw after they twice came from behind in their match with Brentford on Sunday. They eventually drew 2-2 and will get the opportunity to finish the League One side off in a replay at Stamford Bridge, with Middlesbrough lying in wait in the fifth round.

Chelsea have won four of the last six renewals of the FA Cup, although their London rivals, Arsenal, are searching for their first piece of silverware since they won this competition back in 2004/05. Arsene Wenger's side are 11/2 to lift the trophy this season ahead of a tricky fifth round tie with Blackburn.

Everton are next best at 13/2 in the latest betting with PaddyPower and they are the next Premier League side to travel to Oldham following the fifth round draw. Paul Dickov's Oldham may be struggling in the lower reaches of League One but they produced a tremendous performance to beat Liverpool 3-2 on Sunday and they will be hoping for more of the same against another Merseyside club in three weeks time.

Oldham are a massive 500/1 to win the FA Cup at this stage but many punters might be tempted to have a bet on lower league teams after Bradford's heroics in reaching the Capital One Cup final. Luton are also priced 500/1 after the Blue Square Bet Premiership side became the first non-league team to beat top-flight opposition in the FA Cup in 24 years following their 1-0 win at Norwich.

Luton travel to Championship side Millwall, who stunned Aston Villa on Friday night, next up, while QPR's conquerors, MK Dons, are at home to struggling Championship outfit Barnsley. Finally, Wigan are the only other top-flight team remaining in the competition and they will play the winner of the Huddersfield v Leicester fourth round replay.
