The FA Cup First Round proper is a hallmark of the autumn calendar and means more than 40 fixtures from which to spot an upset at big odds with

Just as on league weekends, every bet fans place with the Official Betting Partner of will benefit Boro while offering the best available odds from more than 60 bookmakers –  so why would you bet anywhere else?

Stevenage make the tough trip to the New York Stadium to face Rotherham United, who are pressing for promotion in League Two. Bet Butler are offering 17/10 (Your £25 free bet would return £67.50 – and even if you lose Bet Butler will refund the stake!) on an outright victory for Gary Smith’s men, whilst you can get 12/5 (£25 would return £85) on the game being taken to a replay at the Lamex Stadium. If you want to get yourself some bigger odds why not delve into the correct score markets? For example, Boro to win 2-1 jumps to 10/1, with £25 returning £275! That’d make it a nice weekend! Or if you’re one of the more confident Stevenage fans, why not back the team to bounce back from last weekend’s defeat in style with a three goal victory? 3-0 pays 37/1, now we’re talking with a huge £950 (£25 stake) back in your pocket.

Elsewhere highflying Gillingham, who top League Two, are odds on to reach Round Two despite facing higher division opponents in Scunthorpe. The Iron are 31/10 having gone seven games without a win, while their confident hosts have notched 18 goals in just seven home games. Four or more goals in the game pays 2/1 with Bet Butler.

There’s an all-Essex affair at Chelmsford City to consider, as in-form Colchester head to the county town to take on their Conference South counterparts. The U’s have been resurgent under Joe Dunne, winning four of their last six games, and are 8/11 to progress on the day. City have lost just once on home turf this season, but are they capable of a 4/1 shock?

Still not tickled the tastebuds? How about Hendon (7/1) who take the FA Cup dreams to Aldershot (4/11), Boreham Wood (9/2) who welcome Brentford (8/13) and the Met Police (7/1) stand between Crawley (2/5) and the next round.
