The FA Cup, England’s premier cup tournament and one of the oldest in the world, has reached round four. That means there are 32 teams left in it and while all of the Premier League’s big names are still there, so is a number of the lower-league teams who are still punching above their weight.

We’ve picked out a three-game parlay from the FA Cup third round. Be sure to check out the rest of our soccer predictions and remember to gamble responsibly.

A parlay of three FA Cup predictions can land a big winning ticket, paying odds of +1623 with DraftKings — more than 16/1!

Southampton to beat Arsenal – Money Line (+210), 7:15 a.m ET

Look at the Premier League standings and then look at the match odds. Then rub your eyes and have another look! And then ask yourself; what are you missing?

Southampton, two points above Arsenal in the Premier League standings having played one game less, looks a really good bet here.

The oddsmakers have concluded Arsenal is the Arsenal of old because it is unbeaten in six matches after a terrible start to the season. And of course, Arsenal won the FA Cup last season so will be desperate to hang on to the trophy.

But Southampton is becoming a top team under its Austrian head coach Ralph Hasenhuttl which, don’t forget, beat Premier League champions Liverpool 1-0 just three weeks back. Southampton has shut out seven of the last nine teams to visit its St Mary’s home stadium.

Norwich to beat Barnsley – Money Line (+155), 10 a.m ET

This is a tie between two teams that play in the Championship, the league below the Premier League. But make no mistake, Norwich is much the better side.

Norwich – aka the Canaries because of its yellow and green uniform – was in the Premier League last season and got relegated. Now it is top of the Championship and on its way to going back up.

It beat Bristol City 2-0 on Wednesday – a fourth straight win – and the Bristol head coach said Norwich is the best team in the division. No one doubts that.

Barnsley is okay, halfway in the standings, but has lost three in a row in the league and isn’t in the same class.

Swansea to beat Nottingham Forest – Money Line (+118), 10 a.m ET

This is another FA Cup tie between two teams who play in the Championship, and Swansea should see its way past Forest.

Swansea keeper Freddie Woodman is the last line of the best defense in the Championship by some distance – it has given up just 13 goals in 24 games.

Incredibly, the Swans has shut out eight of its last ten opponents and also shut out Forest when they played in a Championship game in November.

This is the FA Cup so both head coaches will make changes but what is for certain is that Swansea is second in the Championship, Forest is way down in 20th (out of 24) and the home team is the bet.
