“Only the 2005 and 2006 FA Cup finals have been decided by a penalty shootout and it’s 9/2 that the players take to the spot to settle the tie this weekend. Again, Chelsea have a slight advantage according to the odds and are 17/2 to win on penalties with Leicester 9/1.
“The match could be a cagey affair with under 2.5 goals 13/20 slightly more likely than over 2.5 goals at 6/5. If he starts, Olivier Giroud is the most likely goalscorer at 7/5 as he seeks a fifth FA Cup winners’ medal to add to his collection. At 2/1, Jamie Vardy is Leicester’s best source of goals.
“Of course, Chelsea will have another final to prepare again very soon when they face Manchester City in the Champions League final.
“This weekend’s finals is their best chance of winning a trophy this seasons as they’re 13/8 to win the Champions League, and for Chelsea supporters dreaming of a double they’re 14/5 to win both.”
