What are the odds on that?

2 November 2012

The FA Cup First Round proper is a hallmark of the autumn calendar and means more than 40 fixtures from which to spot an upset at big odds with

Just as on league weekends, every bet fans place with the Official Betting Partner of will benefit the Dons while offering the best available odds from more than 60 bookmakers –  so why would you bet anywhere else?

MK Dons are overwhelming favourites as they kick off the FA Cup First Round Proper tonight at Cambridge City. Bet Butler are offering odds of 7/20 for the Dons to be outright winners while the Evo-Stik League Southern Premier Division side are priced at 9/1 to pull off a giant killing. 

The two teams have met in the Cup before, back in 2004 when the Dons edged their hosts 1-0. The same score line for the away team this evening is 7/1 with Bet Butler while City are 25/1 to beat Karl Robinson’s men 2-1.

Highflying Gillingham top League Two are odds on to reach Round Two despite facing higher division opponents in Scunthorpe. The Iron are 31/10 having gone seven games without a win, while their confident hosts have notched 18 goals in just seven home games. Four or more goals in the game pays 2/1 with Bet Butler.

There’s an all-Essex affair at Chelmsford City to consider, as in-form Colchester head to the county town to take on their Conference South counterparts. The U’s have been resurgent under Joe Dunne, winning four of their last six games, and are 8/11 to progress on the day. City have lost just once on home turf this season, but are they capable of a 4/1 shock?

Elsewhere Hendon (7/1) take the FA Cup dreams to Aldershot (4/11), Boreham Wood (9/2) welcome Brentford (8/13) and the Met Police (7/1) stand between Crawley (2/5) and the next round.
