2020-21 FA CUP WINNER ODDS
We are down to 4 sides, and they are 1 win away from the final. Here are the futures for the teams remaining in this season’s FA Cup:
- Manchester City -125
- Leicester City +300
- Chelsea +400
- Southampton +1000
I’ve been touting Chelsea, Leicester City, and Southampton since the 4th Round as sides who can reach the final and continued to back them in the 5th Round and Quarterfinals. We are guaranteed to see at least one of them walk out onto the pitch at Wembley on May 15th.
For one of them to win the trophy, they will need to overcome a relentless Manchester City side who are on course for an unprecedented Quadruple. Pep Guardiola’s side is the clear favorites at -125, and the way they are playing right now, the safe move would be to back them.
If you’re feeling a little risky and looking for more value, I would back Chelsea at +400. Thomas Tuchel has transformed their backline, and we could see them defend deep and take it to penalties.
Here are the 2020-21 FA Cup Semifinal Betting Lines.
FA CUP SEMIFINAL BETTING LINES
ODDS & ENDS
- I think the best value bet of the two games is Chelsea or the Draw at +106. Tuchel is an excellent tactician, and he will set Chelsea up to frustrate Manchester City.
- Brendan Rodgers left 5 players out for their 3-2 defeat against West Ham. James Maddison, Wes Morgan, Harvey Barnes, Hamza Choudhury broke COVID-19 protocols by attending a party at Ayoze Perez’s house. They will return o the starting lineup and respond with a big performance against Southampton. Back Leicester City -1.5 Goals at +280.
