The two most successful clubs in the history of the FA Cup are looking to add another trophy to their mantle this season. Arsenal have won 13 FA Cup titles and Manchester United have won 12 FA Cups in their history, and they are favored to advance out of the quarterfinals this weekend. However, there is no question that the team to beat in the 2019-20 FA Cup is Manchester City. The Citizens are by far the biggest favorite this weekend, and they dismantled Watford 6-0 in last season’s FA Cup Final.

Norwich City +533
Manchester United -196
Over/Under 2.5 and 3
It’s been a disastrous season for Norwich City. The Canaries are very likely to get relegated immediately after winning Championship and earning promotion last season, as they have just 21 points through 31 matches. Norwich are six points behind West Ham, Bournemouth, and Aston Villa, and it’s unlikely they make up that ground. If this club is going to save itself from the drop, Norwich needs all the help it can get, and extra games won’t help given the condensed Premier League schedule. That is going to help Manchester United, and the Red Devils are riding high after Anthony Martial notched the first hat trick of the EPL season in Wednesday’s 3-0 win over Sheffield United.

Sheffield United +198
Arsenal FC +143
Over/Under 2 and 2.5
The Blades were the favorites to be relegated at the beginning of the campaign, but they have outperformed all expectations. Sheffield United are flirting with a spot in Europe as the club is currently in one point ahead of Arsenal in eighth place, yet they have not been sharp since returning from the three-month layoff. This club was hammered 3-0 by both Newcastle United and Manchester United, and they could only muster a draw against Aston Villa.
As for Arsenal, the Gunners finally stopped the bleeding with a 2-0 victory over Southampton on Wednesday. They have an uphill battle to even qualify for the Europa League though, and this club has plenty of decisions to make in the offseason. A win here would give fans hope for some additional silverware, but not even a trophy would make this a successful season at the Emirates.

Leicester City +181
Chelsea FC +149
Over/Under 2.5 and 3
Christian Pulisic has arrived. Pulisic scored Chelsea’s first goal after the restart in a 2-1 victory over Aston Villa on Sunday, and he opened the scoring against Manchester City on Thursday. That has Chelsea fans, particularly those in America, giddy about the club, but they still must hold off Manchester United and Wolverhampton to qualify for next year’s Champions League.
Leicester City have yet to win the FA Cup with four runner-up finishes over their long history. The Foxes last made it to the FA Cup Final in 1969, and they would love to make a return in order to finally claim a league cup. Jamie Vardy is on pace to claim the Golden Boot this season, and this club will have the rest advantage over the Blues.

Newcastle United +1430
Manchester City -588
Over/Under 3 and 3.5
It’s been a disappointing season for Manchester City, but the Citizens are heavy favorites to win the FA Cup with Liverpool out of the competition. Unlike the other teams left in the running, they have little left to play for in the Premier League as they are essentially locked into second place. Newcastle United earned a stunning 2-2 draw against City thanks to a late goal from Jonjo Shelvey in their previous tilt at St. James’ Park, but the Magpies will be hard-pressed to earn another result.
