FA Cup Glory for Arsenal?

The FA Cup Final is upon us again as the domestic season in England (and most of Europe) comes to a close. Arsenal enter the game as hot favourites as they come up against an indifferent Aston Villa side who are in their first FA Cup Final since their 1-0 defeat to Chelsea in 2000. Arsenal have more experience in this competition, winning last season after going 2-0 down to Hull City early on only to recover and eventually win the game in extra time, thanks to a winning goal from their player of the season, Aaron Ramsey.

 Massive offer on the FA Cup FinalDanny Welbeck has already been ruled out of the final due to injury, having not started a game since their semi-final win over Reading. However, with Walcott firing on all cylinders after his first half hat-trick against West Brom last weekend, it'd be a brave man to oppose them come Saturday afternoon.

Oddsportal have this game priced up from more than 50 bookmakers, and the best price for Arsenal to win in 90 minutes currently best priced at 1.57 (with Coral). Coral

However, Coral have a special offer for new customers for this game, which is a MASSIVE 6/1 for Arsenal to win in 90 minutes. We spoke about value just last week (read that blog post here), and this offer is the epitome of good value. Usually, a 6/1 shot (6.00 in decimal odds) implies that the outcome has a 16.7% chance of success. It doesn't take a rocket scientist or Matthew Benham to see that this is an opportunity to beat the odds. In fact, if you're clever, you could guarantee profit regardless with this offer.


How? Well, open a new Coral account to get £5 on the 6/1 enhanced odds on an Arsenal win in 90. Then use Bet365 to bet +0.50 Asian Handicap (double chance) at odds of 2.60, £5 will do. Here is the outcome if you took this approach:

Arsenal Win = £25 profit (£30 Profit at Coral -£5 Loss at Bet365)
Draw/Villa Win = £3 profit + a £20 free bet at Coral (£8 profit at Bet365 -£5 Loss at Coral)

Profit regardless, who knew that sports betting could be WIN WIN!
