The bookies are offering underdog backers the chance to let their original bet stand in the replay if they back a team from a lower division and they manage to get a draw in their FA Cup third round tie.
Man City are the 11/2 Cup favourites ahead of the big derby tie on Sunday while Liverpool have had plenty of support and stand at 8/1 as they face Oldham.
Ladbrokes have also priced up the number of top-flight teams to get knocked out in the 3rd Round – exactly 6 is 5/2 while it’s 8/11 that no non-league sides make the 4th round.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “This is the biggest weekend of the year for the romantics who back upsets. If their team force the replay they will be get a second crack of the whip with many prices looking attractive should a big side travel to an unfashionable ground.”
He added: “Liverpool are currently our biggest loser by quite some way. Punters clearly feel Dalglish is on the brink of delivering some long-awaited silverware.”
