Bracknell Town’s 2017/18 FA Vase odds tumble after Third Round win

Bracknell Town are now third favourites to lift the FA Vase at Wembley Stadium after the clubs odds tumbled from 33/1 to 8/1 with betting site Bet Victor.

Currently the only site giving odds on the competition, Bet Victor has twice beaten finalists West Auckland Town as 4/1 favourites and Marske United as 6/1 second favourites.

The competition is down to the last 32 with Bracknell drawn away to Wessex League Premier Division side Blackfield & Langley in the Fourth Round that will take place on Saturday 6th January.

The other two remaining Hellenic League and Berkshire sides in the competition are Thatcham Town (40/1) and Windsor (50/1).

No side from Berkshire has ever won the FA Vase, let alone reached the final since it started in 1974/75 and odds aside, the three Hellenic clubs still face a huge challenge against the traditionally dominant sides from the Northern League which number West Auckland, Marske, Newcastle Benfield and Stockton Town.

Some big Vase names are already out though with North Shields, Whitley Bay and south coast side Sholing all crashing out in the third round.
