Saturday FA Cup 3rd Round: Miller picks Blackpool vs West Brom, Stoke City vs Leicester, Stevenage vs Swansea
Blackpool (+265) vs. West Brom (+100), 0 a.m. EST (ESPN+); Stoke City (+500) vs. Leicester City (-177), 10 a.m. EST (ESPN+); Stevenage (+480) vs. Swansea City (-167), 10 a.m. EST (ESPN+)
F.A. Cup Third Round springs to life Saturday with 20+ matches
The oldest club competition in the world, the F.A. Cup, has already thrown up some surprises. There was Trenton’s own Matthew Olosunde, who played with Manchester United’s reserves for four years before signing with Rotherham, embarrassing Premier League top four side Everton all afternoon, scoring a goal along the way for the Championship side.
This cup is known for its nostalgia, and for its early round upsets, much like March Madness. But the big boys usually win it: you just have to know which ones are going to get beat early on in the tournament.
Sam Allerdyce could use this cup to get West Bromwich Albion going in the league, while Leicester City could win this.
Look for both to win.
