Chelsea v Tottenham FA Cup Betting Tips
This is going to be interesting, very interesting at Wembley
on Saturday afternoon. This is the first of the FA Cup semi-finals this season, the winner will go on to face either Man City or Arsenal in the final. Both Chelsea and Spurs won their respective
home match against the other in the Premier League meetings this season and we should be expecting goals in his one. Over 2.5 goals at Bet365 is a quote of 8/11
and that has happened in five of the last eight meetings between these two. Chelsea are running with an advantage in the recent head to head as they have gone W5 D4 L2 in their last eleven against Spurs in all competitions. The last FA Cup meeting between these two
was in April 2012 when the Blues put a big 5-1 win on the board. Chelsea holds a slight head to head advantage over Spurs in FA Cup meetings with a W5 D2 L4 record. The Blues were poor in a league loss at Man Utd
on the weekend, will they be able to bounce back from that? The Blues are W2 L2 in their last four played.
But recently after they had suffered a loss against Crystal Palace in the league, Chelsea showed their worth by turning around
and beating Manchester City in their next game. It’s likely that they will be better in this one than they were on the weekend. Both teams to score in this one at Bet365 is a price of 4/5
and Chelsea have plenty of scoring power. Eden Hazard is their biggest threat at the moment and he is a 2/1 anytime goalscorer option and Chelsea need to find a way to get him into the game because he is their most influential attack. Diego Costa is 13/8 anytime goalscorer favourite.
This perhaps is more than just a chance for Chelsea to get the to final it is a chance for them to damage Spurs psychologically
when it comes back to the Premier League race. It could be a good thing for Chelsea to snap Tottenham’s winning streak. Chelsea are unbeaten in four FA Cup games in a row against Spurs (W3 D1).
Spurs are just in some incredible form right now
and they have an eight-match winning streak going right now across all competitions. The Lilywhites remain unbeaten in ten (W9 D1). In each of those ten games, Spurs have netted at least two goals and they have also picked up six clean sheets in the run as well.
Spurs have scored eight goals in their last two games alone and in the Bet365 Correct Score market the shortest priced option
is the 1-1 draw at 5/1 but a Tottenham 1-0 at 7/1 is shorter than a win for Chelsea by the same scoreline at 15/2. You can have a shot on Tottenham to win to nil
at Bet365 for 7/2 and they are playing so very well at the moment. This will give them huge belief of catching Chelsea and unsettling the Blues further in that Premier League title race if they can beat them in this FA Cup clash. Harry Kane is a 7/4 anytime goalscorer option
for them with Dele Alli and Son Heung-Min at 9/4. Chelsea have struggled for clean sheets recently so Spurs are likely to net in this one.

Tottenham To Win:
The self-belief, form and confidence from Spurs is pretty evident at the moment and Chelsea were very poor last weekend. There’s no reason why Spurs can’t go out and enjoy themselves
on the weekend and ultimately at the end of the day, Chelsea’s main focus is going to back on the league. Spurs to win and both teams to score.
