Manchester United Shocked in FA Cup Sportsbook

December 1, 2010 Sportsbook

Sportsbook results had Manchester United getting shocked in the FA Cup by Leeds 1-0 on Sunday.

Jermaine Beckford scored the games only goal and Manchester United lost to a team that was not expected to give them any type of game in offshore sportsbook odds.

Sportsbook rarely has odds on Leeds since they have fallen to League One status.  Losing at home is something that Manchester United almost never does but this time they fell to Leeds who is managed by Simon Grayson.  United manager Alex Ferguson didn’t take Leeds seriously enough and by the time he put in reinforcements, it didn’t matter.  Ryan Giggs, Antonio Valencia and Michael Owen came into the game but Leeds still was able to get the win.  Sometimes in offshore sportsbook results overconfidence comes back to bite a team and Ferguson finally got his due on Sunday.  This is not the all powerful team of past years for Manchester United. There is no Cristiano Ronaldo to bail Ferguson out this year vs. offshore sportsbook odds.  United is out of the FA Cup and they may end up losing the Premier League title as well before all is said and done.

Leeds won at Old Trafford for the first time since 1981.  They move on to the next sportsbook round as does Chelsea who had not trouble against Watford, winning 5-0. Daniel Sturridge scored twice and Chelsea also got goals from John Eustace, Florent Malouda and Frank Lampard.   Arsenal was able to come from behind to get past West Ham, winning 2-1 in sportsbook results. Aaron Ramsey and Eduardo Da Silva had second half goals to win it for Arsenal vs. offshore sportsbook odds.

The draw for the fourth round of the FA Cup has Leeds facing Tottenham Hotspur in the next sportsbook round. Chelsea has to face Preston North End. Manchester City goes to Scunthorpe.  Forest Green Rovers would host Wigan but they first have to beat Notts County in sportsbook results. Arsenal will travel to Stoke in a matchup of Premier League teams. Liverpool still has to beat Reading before they would go up against Burnley. Everton would play host to Birmingham City if they defeat Nottingham Forest. Sunderland goes to Portsmouth or Coventry City. Other sportsbook odds have Southampton vs. Ipswich Town, Millwall or Derby County vs. Brentford or Doncaster Rovers, West Bromwich Albion vs. Plymouth Argyle or Newcastle United, Accruington Stanley or Gillingham vs. Fulham, Bolton vs. Sheffield United or QPR, Aston Villa vs. Brighton and Hove Albion and Tranmere Rovers or Wolves vs. Crystal Palace.
