Cup Final betting
90 Minute betting is still tight. 1/3(skybet) for Rangers, 4/1 (generally) the draw, 12/1(boylesports) Falkirk. I'll be checking the HT-FT markets though. 5/6 (papdypower) seems a decent price for Rangers-Rangers, 7/2 (generally) for the draw-Rangers is not too bad either. 15/2 (corals) for the draw-draw, or 25/1 (skybet) for Falkirk-draw also seem decent enough.
First scorer is always interesting. Boyd, again, is clear favourite, at 10/3 (stanjames,betfred), Miller is 9/2 (paddypower,skybet,hills), with Lafferty a decent shout at 7/1 (skybet,extrabet). Other bigger prices worth a look are Bougherra 40/1 (extrabet), Papac 50/1, (extrabet) or Whittaker at 25/1 (generally).
The correct score is always a tough one. How likely was 3-0 last week? 11/1 was the price. It's 15/2 (bet365,bluesq,888,hills) this week . Also worth a look are 3-1 at 11/1 (skybet,extrabet), 4-0 (14/1 generally) and 3-2 at 33/1 (generally).
Being a cup final, there are a few not so obvious markets. Oddschecker gives a decent rundown of them. Some are : Boyd to score a hat-trick (20/1 bluesq,stanjames,888), Rangers to win on penalties 18/1 (bluesq,888), Woodwork to be hit none (10/11), once (2/1), Twice (9/2), three or more (15/2) all at Ladbrokes, an Own Goal to be scored (7/1 at Paddypower), Falkirk to score first but not to win (11/2 bluesq,888).
At Wembley Chelsea are 4/9 (extrabet) to life the cup, Everton are 2/1 (bet365). You can get 3/4 (bluesq,888) for Chelsea to win in 90 mins, 13/5 the draw (365,betfred,sky) or 9/2 for Everton (skybet,coral,hills).
A Rangers-Chelsea 90 minute double is 5/4 at Boylesports,betfred,paddypower,or hills.
Boylesports and Betfred also do next celtc manager. How about Gary McAllister at 100/1, Liam Brady (80/1), or Sven Goran Eriksson at 66/1 ?
Whatever you do, happy punting, and enjoy the close season!
