It’s one of the greatest days in the football calendar as the Premier League big guns join the FA Cup party – and with so many non-League clubs still standing, it is a third round that is sure to be sensational!
Enjoy a close look at some of the best FA Cup action on offer this weekend with our Third Round odds at LV BET.
FA CUP FIXTURES: THRID ROUND BETTING TIPS
Boreham Wood vs AFC Wimbledon
The FA Cup hunters of years gone by are about to become the hunted.
Wimbledon’s name is synonymous with the famous competition, and the modern-day Dons have an upset or two on their honour roll as well.
But this weekend it’s about avoiding a banana skin, and LV BET partner club Boreham Wood want to dish one up.
The sub-plot is juicy. Manager Luke Garrard played for Wimbledon in their non-League days, and he is loved by the club’s fans for helping them to two promotions.
But it’s all about the Wood now, and he fancies a big upset against a club who remain close to his heart.
West Bromwich Albion vs Brighton & Hove Albion
It’s probably not the tie that West Brom wanted, but the battle of the Albions could produce an upset.
The Baggies are five-time winners but haven’t really got close since their last success in 1968.
Fans would love to put that right, and with some winners from outside the top flight in the last few decades, who knows what’s ahead.
West Brom sit fourth in the Championship, while Brighton arrive at The Hawthorns having moved back into the Premier League’s top half with wins over Brentford and Everton.
There’s a score to settle too – the sides last faced each other in the world’s most famous cup competition as recently as the 2018/19 campaign, with the Seagulls winning the fifth-round replay 3-1.
Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal
This has all the potential to be the tie of the round – but is an upset coming?
Arsenal are much improved in recent months of course, but so are Nottingham Forest.
Under Steve Cooper’s charge, the Tricky Trees have turned their season around, even if they have lost their last two.
They have FA Cup history against the Gunners. In 2018, Eric Lichaj ‘s double helped eliminate the holders at the City Ground.
Arsenal can’t afford to take any chances on Sunday as the Championship club get ready for another shot at the Premier League big hitters.
