Chelsea vs Leicester Bet Builder Tip – 27/1 Punt for the FA Cup Final

FA Cup betting tips

Chelsea face Leicester in this season’s FA Cup final on Saturday and we have picked out our selections for a bet builder tip on the match. The game kicks-off at 5.15pm from Wembley and Chelsea are the slight favourites at odds of 10/11.

Both these sides are still firmly in the hunt for Champions League football next season but a trophy will be the thing immediately on their minds here. Leicester got to this point by beating Southampton in their semi-final and warmed up for the match with a win over a depleted Manchester United side on Tuesday.

Chelsea stopped Manchester City’s hopes of winning a quadruple with their 1-0 win in the semi-final and another close game looks likely in what could be a cagey FA Cup final this weekend.

In the 90 minute odds, Chelsea are favourites at 10/11, the draw is 5/2 and Leicester are top price 4/1 with Paddy Power to win.

FA Cup finals are usually close matches and we expect no different here. Leicester have already beaten Chelsea this season and both sides have been impressive (for the most part) through this campaign, Chelsea especially since Tuchel came in. They did lose 1-0 at home to Arsenal in midweek though which leaves them vulnerable in fourth place. Leicester got back to winning ways with a win over Man United on Tuesday and have only conceded two goals in the FA Cup this season.


SHOTS ON TARGET: James Maddison 1+

Maddison was a substitute for the match vs Manchester United but should be back in the starting line-up at Wembley. He is the Leicester set piece taker which always adds to the chances of him getting a shot on target but even from open play he does regularly trouble goalkeepers, even if it is a shot from distance.


TO BE BOOKED: Youri Tielemans

The Leicester midfield will have some defensive work to do against the likes of Mason Mount, Ziyech and Havertz. This will likely result in quite a few fouls being committed and Tielemans will be one of the lines of defence against these attacking players. He’s been booked six times already this season.
