Leicester vs Chelsea Betting Tips
Leicester City have never won the FA Cup although they will clash with Chelsea on Saturday 15 May hoping to make history, with Brendan Rodgers’ side the betting outsiders to land this piece of silverware although they’ll feel confident of running their opponents close at Wembley.
Thomas Tuchel hasn’t been in charge at Stamford Bridge for long although he engineered a semi-final victory over Manchester City, with Chelsea favourites to claim a final victory under the German although our prediction is that we’ll see a tight match.
Chelsea Even Money Betting Favourites to Win FA Cup
If you think that Chelsea have a greater than 50% chance of winning the FA Cup, then you might want to back the London side at evens to claim a normal time victory, with Tuchel having transformed the fortunes of this team and continuing to operate with a 3-5-2 formation which allows the wing-backs to rove forward.
It’s worth noting that while Chelsea were able to exploit City’s high line, they might find it harder to break down a Leicester team who will set up to nullify their opponents and look to hit them on the break themselves.
Bet on Leicester to Keep Things Tight Against Chelsea
Brendan Rodgers will certainly be wary of getting picked off in this cup final and our tip has to be for a low-scoring clash to occur between these two sides, with Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho ready to pounce on any mistakes at the back.
It’s possible that we might see the tie go into extra-time, although considering that both sides won their semi-final encounters by a single goal illustrates that we have to be looking at goals being at a premium for this contest.
