Bournemouth vs Swansea odds
*Odds correct as of 07:30 on January 25
Bournemouth are in the fourth round of the FA Cup for the fourth time in five seasons, and they’ll be hoping to continue their journey through the competition. In two of their past three appearances in the fourth round, Bournemouth were knocked out, including in 2021/22 when they were shocked in a 1-0 home defeat to Boreham Wood. Last season was worse regarding an exit, as they lost to Championship side Burnley in the third round. There was no such upset in the third round this year, but Bournemouth did have to come from 2-0 down to beat Queens Park Rangers 3-2.
Swansea, meanwhile, are in the fourth round for the first time in three seasons after suffering back-to-back third-round exits. That run came after a mini period of success for Swansea in the FA Cup, as they reached the quarter-finals in back-to-back years and had another run to the fifth round. In last year’s third round, Swansea faced Championship opposition in Bristol City and eventually lost in extra time after a replay. This time, they were slightly more comfortable in a 2-0 win over League Two side Morecambe.
