FA Cup Each-Way Tip: West Brom

West Brom are too big a price the way they are progressing under Pulis who should have no reason to rest players if they progress far in the competition.

Our second outright FA Cup tip for this season is an each-way punt on West Bromwich Albion at a best price of 50/1 with Skybet. We would get paid out at 1/2 odds if the Baggies lost in the final.

That latter point is important because of the trend of ‘smaller’ or struggling clubs reaching the showpiece event in recent years. The last four finals have featured Wigan, Hull, Aston Villa and Palace.

We shouldn’t really be all that surprised as the biggest sides falter or get distracted by title bids and Europe. There’s no reason why this year should be any different.

If anything, backing the Baggies makes even more sense because they really aren’t struggling one bit. Currently eighth in the table, the west Midlanders are enjoying a stellar campaign which should allow them to focus on the cup if they get on a run.

They begin with a home tie with Derby which they shouldn’t fear and if the draw is kind they can quickly make a mockery of odds which put them in the same bracket as Championship Newcastle.
