For those who want to be that bit more involved in the matches, below is a look at the betting odds for the upcoming FA Cup matches. 

There is one that immediately catches the eye, with Everton a whopping 9/1 underdogs against Manchester City. 

Indeed, Everton’s home form has been somewhat lackluster this season, in fact the 15th best in the Premier League. 

However, an Everton win isn’t entirely out of the question, and at 9/1, it’s an intriguing offer.
