FA Cup Betting: Third Round Finale

The Wolves vs. Liverpool tonight at 19:45 GMT to close out the Third Round of FA Cup action.

The Wolverhampton Wanderers (Wolves) take on Liverpool in the grand finale of the third round of FA Cup action tonight. This will be the seventh meeting between the teams in FA Cup history. The Wolves, who are currently in ninth place in the Premier League have actually beaten Liverpool, who are still in top spot in league play, four out of the last six meetings. The most recent meeting was also a big Wolves' win at Anfield back in January 2017, 2-1. 

Both Liverpool and the Wolves lost their previous meetings in the FA Cup. The Reds lost a big match to Manchester City, while the Wolves lost at home to Crystal Palace. If you recall though, two months ago, Liverpool came to Molineux as part of the league play and triumphed 2-0. Surprisingly enough, Liverpool has been the only top-tier team to defeat the Wolves this season so far, as both Tottenham and the Blues lost, while Arsenal, Man. United, and Man. City was held to draws respectively.

If the Wolves are to have a shot at winning tonight they will need to improve drastically from their last match against Liverpool. The speed with which Liverpool is able to transition from defense to attack is outstanding. Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk are two of the biggest stars in the game, and the synergy that they have formed on the pitch is the reason for the Reds' top spot in the Premier League. 

FA Cup Prediction

Liverpool is far too strong for the Wolves to handle, and, they are at full strength tonight. The chances that Wolves are able to keep up with Liverpool for 90-minutes is absurd. The Reds should be able to make good on their last winning campaign to Molineux and expect a similar outcome too. bet365 Sports is all over the odds ahead of, and, during tonight's match. Liverpool is favored to win at 1.85, and the Wolves are at 4.20 for the outright win.
