The last domestic game of the season – time for some FA Cup Final enhanced odds!
This weekend will see the ideal FA Cup Final for neutrals – a team flying high at the top of the league versus a team that has struggled against relegation all season!
Arsenal reach their second FA Cup Final in a row following their dramatic comeback against Hull City last May when they came from 2-0 down to grab their first trophy in 9 seasons. Following their 3rd place finish this year they will be confident of beating a team that they beat comfortably home and away this season in the league.
Aston Villa have been rejuvenated by Tim Sherwood’s arrival at the club and, despite them losing their last two games since their safety was assured, they will be confident in their own ability to win the cup as the massive underdogs. Their win over Liverpool in the semi-final would have given them a huge lift and, with Benteke still in their squad, they have the man who can power them to victory.
What FA Cup Final Enhanced Odds Are Available?
Well as usual we have collated the best enhanced odds from the biggest bookies out there and have published them here!
Of these bets, the best ones are as follows and, as usual, involve the big hitters in the industry.
Coral are offering one of the more attractive bets of the day, with them offering 6/1 on Arsenal to win the cup in 90 minutes. As mentioned below, the form points in that direction if you trust your head over your heart!
For those that don’t feel confident betting on either team, Boylesport are offering a very special bet – they give FA Cup Final enhanced odds a twist and are providing a £10 free bet to their customers for every goal that is scored in the final! With Arsenal still being quite leaky at the back and Villa not being able to keep a clean sheet if their lives depended on it, this is a great bet!
Personally I would be looking at certain other bets to find some value. Despite the fact that he might not start the game, Olivier Giroud has a great record of scoring against Villa, so an ‘anytime’ bet on him scoring could be wise. Ozil, as below, also scored against Villa twice this season – could he be the man to decide it? Ozil is best priced at 10/1 at Bet365.
For those that believe that Villa can pull off a win – let’s face it, Wigan beat Man City in the final only two years ago – the odds of a 1-0 win with Benteke scoring could bring a few riches to those brave punters. You can get odds of 10/1 at Coral for Benteke to score and Villa to win, but you can get upwards of 50/1 for the Benteke/1-0 double at Bet365 if you’re quick!!
What’s The Form Between Arsenal and Aston Villa?
Look away right now, Aston Villa fans!
This season the teams met twice with an aggregate score of 8-0 to Arsenal. 5-0 at The Emirates and 3-0 at Villa Park. Both games were an absolute punishment for Villa as the Gunners decided to share the goals around. Ozil scored in both games but he was the only person to score more than once. Could he be a threat in the final?
Indeed, if you go back to 2011 and the nine games in the league and cup since that point, Arsenal have won 7, drawn one and lost one (the opening game of the season in 2013/14).
As I’ve stated above, the real ‘head’ opinion here would be to pile onto an Arsenal win, but this is the FA Cup, where shocks have happened over the years regularly. Sherwood will have them pumped up for the game and, if they can hold out and not concede in the first 30 minutes or so, anything could happen.
Either way it should be a great game. Keep on checking in for more FA Cup Final enhanced odds as we get closer to the match!
