FOOTBALL BETTING: ToteSport have made Chelsea heavy 1/8 odds on favs to win the FA Cup against Championship bound Portsmouth on May 15th.
Portsmouth are 5/1 with Bet365 to lift the trophy after a memorable semi final win, despite a season of adversity. It is a remarkable conclusion to a remarkable season for the south coast club, which nearly saw them wound up merely 2 months ago.
Whilst Chelsea are the much stronger outfit in this top vs bottom clash, The Blues also have to keep half a mind on the title race as well. Portsmouth, free of any league distractions since the weekend relegation, can solely concentrate on channeling all of their efforts into this tie in 5 weeks time.
Unfortunately Portsmouth did not apply for a UEFA license after entering administration, presumably as it was seen as surplus to requirements, and so will not be allowed to play in the Europa League should they lift the cup.
