English FA Cup Quarterfinals Preview

BETCRIS FA Cup Quarterfinals odds

This weekend, all eyes in England turn to the FA Cup. For giants like Tottenham, Chelsea, and Manchester United, this is now serious business. All three clubs are now out of the Champions League and have virtually no chance of catching Manchester City for the Premier League title. This is their one chance left to win some hardware this season, so these teams will hold nothing back.

Because this is the FA Cup, we are bound to see an upset though. Every year it feels like we have at least one or two Cinderellas make it to the semifinals, so the question is finding the one underdog that will make it to the next stage.

Bet on the English FA Cup Quarterfinals at BetCRIS

Tottenham Hotspur vs. Swansea City

Date and Time: March 17, 2018, 8:15 a.m. ET

Location: Liberty Stadium

US Television Coverage: FS1

Betting Line: Tottenham -1, O/U 2.5

It’s been quite a while since Tottenham has been able to win a trophy of any sort, and Hotspur suffered a huge blow to their chances when Harry Kane injured his ankle. Kane was the Premier League’s leading goal scorer and has been the spark for this team all season long. He won’t be back until April and now Tottenham must find a way to score without him.

Swansea has not played poorly as of late, losing just one of its last six matches. Without Kane in the lineup, Tottenham may trouble to score, and Swansea has a great goalkeeper in Lukasz Fabianski

Manchester United vs. Brighton & Hove Albion FC

Date and Time: March 17, 2018, 3:45 p.m. ET

Location: Old Trafford

US Television Coverage: FS2

Betting Line: Manchester United -1.5, O/U 2.5 and 3

Jose Mourinho needs to get a win somewhere. After a disappointing home loss to Sevilla that knocked United out of the Champions League, the grumbling has begun. Mourinho’s spat with Paul Pogba will likely lead to the superstar leaving Old Trafford in the offseason and it’s a bit puzzling why Pogba has been used as a substitute considering the injuries United has suffered.

Brighton is having an incredible season. They recently beat Arsenal 2-1 and have been very good at home this year. Unfortunately, the results haven’t been so good on the road.

Wigan Athletic vs. Southampton

Date and Time: March 18, 2018, 9:30 a.m. ET

Location: DW Stadium

US Television Coverage: FS1

Betting Line: Wigan PK and -0.5, O/U 2 and 2.5

Southampton just sacked manager Mauricio Pellegrino and will have Mark Hughes at the helm for this one. Hughes is here to make sure the team doesn’t get relegated after a disastrous start to the season. Southampton are just one point clear of the relegation zone and need all the help they can get.

Meanwhile, Wigan is looking like it will move up from League One to Championship at the end of the year. They are currently tied with Shrewsbury in second, but have a game in hand and a massive goal differential lead. The Latics are favored because they have much less to worry about, and they are playing at home.

Leicester City vs. Chelsea

Date and Time: March 18, 2018, 12:30 p.m. ET

Location: King Power Stadium

US Television Coverage: FS2

Betting Line: Chelsea PK and -0.5, O/U 2.5

Over the past few weeks, Leicester have recovered nicely after the Riyad Mahrez drama subsided. Leicester’s superstar is back in form and has helped the team pull out key results to stay in the top half of the table.

Chelsea may have been bounced by Barcelona in the Champions League, but it has looked good offensively lately even though the goals haven’t come. The Blues have showed creativity and are getting good looks, and they will eventually break through.

In the first match of the Quarterfinals, I like Swansea to pull off the upset and knock off Tottenham at home. I think that the chalk will prevail in the other three games though.
