There may not be a better knockout tournament around the world than the F. A. Cup, which heads to the third round Saturday.The Premier League sides enter the fray this round, after the lower league sides battled to get to this point. There is value all over the board, especially as some of the minnows will be taking on clubs much higher up the pyramid. But you have to watch: much like the NCAA basketball tournament, there are always upsets. Millwall is a club that usually makes runs in this tournament, and the London side is favored over Newport County.
