FA Cup Odds: Wolves 12/1 for FA Cup; 2/7 to reach Wembley

The quarter-final line-up in the FA Cup is now known and there are four juicy ties ahead, including Liverpool's trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United, while Wolves were drawn at home to Championship Coventry.

There's no doubt Gary O'Neil's men were the big winners from the quarter-final draw, with Wolves now as short as 2/7 to make the FA Cup semi-finals.

bet365’s Steve Freeth said: “The uncertainty over Julen Lopetegui and then the arrival of Gary O’Neil had punters scrambling to back Wolves for the drop. So much so that one in five bets in the relegation market were on the Molineux side as they shortened from 11/2 into 9/4 before a ball was kicked.

 “Wins against high-flyers Manchester City and Spurs helped ease those doubts and since Christmas we’ve seen O’Neil’s outfit kick on even further in the league (500/1 into 22/1 for the top six) as well as producing an FA Cup run having been 80/1 before the 3rd round replay extra time victory over Brentford.

“Wins over the two Albions have seen Wanderers quoted at 2/7 to qualify against Coventry and reach an FA Cup semi-final at Wembley leaving them challenging for a European spot on two fronts.

“Such things wouldn’t have seemed possible when O’Neil was appointed just four days before their season started."

Manchester United, 12-time FA Cup winners who last hoisted the trophy in 2016, have endured an inconsistent season and this competition is the last chance they have of winning silverware this term.

Erik ten Hag's men will have to get past quadruple-chasing Liverpool, who are second in the outright betting at 3/1, behind 7/5 favourites and holders Manchester City.

The quarter-final ties will take place across the weekend of 16th-17th March and we have taken a look at each contest, as the eight remaining sides look to book their places in the semi-finals at Wembley.

Manchester United v Liverpool

Man Utd - 10/3
Draw -
Liverpool -

United's season has been a disappointing one and even if they do manage to win the FA Cup, it's still unclear whether that will be enough to keep Ten Hag in the Old Trafford seat.

The Red Devils needed a late winner to edge past Nottingham Forest 1-0 at the City Ground in the fifth round and they will need to improve in order to dispatch rivals Liverpool, who beat Southampton 3-0 to reach this stage.

One bonus for United is the fact they have won eight of their last nine home FA Cup ties, the sole loss a penalty shootout defeat to Middlesbrough in February 2022, while they did beat the Reds 2-1 in their last meeting at Old Trafford.

Manchester City v Newcastle

Man City - 8/13
Draw -
Newcastle -

Newcastle United will have to go some if they want to end their long wait for silverware, as they have been drawn away to holders Manchester City in the quarter-finals.

The Citizens have won their last nine FA Cup ties, scoring 31 goals and conceding three times and it is no surprise they are the 7/5 favourites to lift this trophy for the eighth time.

However, Pep Guardiola will be fully aware of Newcastle's threat, having already tasted defeat to the Magpies this season in the third round of the League Cup.

Eddie Howe's side are 10/1 to win the FA Cup for the first time since 1955.

Wolves v Coventry

Wolves - 4/6
Draw -
Coventry -

Coventry ended Maidstone's fairytale FA Cup run to the fifth round, racking up a convincing 5-0 victory, and the Sky Blues will be eager to reach the semi-finals for the first time since they won this competition in 1987.

Mark Robins' side have Championship promotion to think about as they push for a play-off spot, but the lure of a trip to Wembley means a lot of focus will go into this quarter-final tie against Wolves.

Gary O'Neil's Premier League side are in contention for a European finish and they will be a tough nut to crack at Molineux, where they have won their last two FA Cup matches.

Wolves are 12/1 to win the FA Cup, while Coventry are the 40/1 outsiders.

Chelsea v Leicester

Chelsea - 4/7
Draw -
Leicester -

Chelsea have already experienced a cup final defeat this season, having recently lost to Liverpool in extra-time of the League Cup, and Mauricio Pochettino will be eager to make amends for that.

The Blues have now lost six successive Wembley finals and they face a tough assignment to prolong their stay in the FA Cup after being drawn against 2021 winners Leicester.

Enzo Maresca is enjoying a fantastic debut season at the King Power Stadium and he has the Foxes on course for an instant return to the Premier League, with the club top of the Championship.

Leicester knocked out Bournemouth in the fifth round and they will fancy their chances of taking down another top-flight opponent in the Blues, who have been lacking consistency this season.

Chelsea are 6/1 to win the trophy, with the Foxes priced at 20/1.
