William Hill, the official betting partner and an official supporter if the FA Cup, have priced up some of the match ups and unsurprisingly make both Liverpool and Chelsea 1/16 shots to qualify from their ties. Hills offer 1/8 that the final is contested between two Premier League sides, 100/1 that no Premier League sides make it and 9/2 that one does.
With Stevenage and Crawley both making it into the draw for the fifth round, Hills are offering 5/6 that Stevenage concede more goals in their match against Tottenham than Crawley do in their match against Stoke.
Crawley and Stevenage are going to be up against it, but the only thing predictable about the outcome of the FA Cup is that it is so unpredictable and we could see a couple of the proverbial banana skins, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly.
I am really looking forward to the Liverpool/Brighton match as both sides play a similar brand of football and after the way that Brighton played against Newcastle, Liverpool could be in for a tricky tie, said Gaizka Mendieta, speaking exclusively to William Hill.
