FA Cup Betting Odds: Chelsea v Manchester United

FA Cup Final Betting: Chelsea v Manchester United

In the first FA Cup final to be staged at the new Wembley Stadium, it’s the final everyone wanted.

It’s been a long wait, but Wembley is finally ready to stage an FA Cup final and it couldn’t be much more anticipated or evenly poised. After Manchester United pipped Chelsea to the league title, the Londoners will be keen to add to their Carling Cup victory over Arsenal earlier this season.

Most bookmakers can hardly separate the pair, with Manchester United slight favourites at 6/4 with William Hill and Chelsea at 7/4. However, Jose Mourinho has a great record against Alex Ferguson, losing only once in 10 meetings.

Paddy Power are offering an interesting special market on the first cliché to be said by BBC 1’s commentary team. At 6/1 favourite is “worth the wait”, followed by the likes of “fearless John Terry” at 20/1, “not the type to stay down” at 40/1 and “is it me – or is the arch wobbling?” at 200/1.

Didier Drogba is favourite to score first, at 5/1 with Totesport, followed by Wayne Rooney at 6/1 with Ladbrokes and Christiano Ronaldo at 7/1.

An interesting bet could be Christiano Ronaldo, the PFA’s Player and Young Player of the year, to score 2 or more goals at 16/1 with Paddy Power. The silky Portuguese winger is at the top of his form after scoring 17 goals in the premiership this season and is 6/1 to be the official FA Cup Man of the Match.

Money-Back Special - If you back a team to win in 90 minutes and they fail to win in normal time but lose on a penalty shootout, then Paddy Power will refund all win-draw-win bets on that team only.

Simply sign up for a Totesport account, place your first bet with a stake between £5 & £50 and they will credit your account with an equivalent free bet.
