WE’VE scoured the odds at Matchbook and come up with our three best weekend lays.
This wasn’t the Scottish Cup Final many expected when the season kicked off but it’s sure to be a memorable occasion. After disposing of Hibs in the semi-finals, Championship side Falkirk now face Premier League bronze medallists Inverness Caley Thistle.
The stakes for this game are massive with neither of these sides regular trophy winners and that might make the game a little cagey. Eight of the last 12 Inverness games have gone Under 2.5 Goals and Falkirk will no doubt sit back and suck up the pressure like they did against Hibs. That makes a lay of Over 2.5 Goals an attractive option at odds of 2.04.
Arsenal are strong favourites for Saturday’s FA Cup Final but there’s good reason to take them on in the 90 minute market. Arsene Wenger’s side have consistently failed to impress at Wembley in recent years and have let down punters on many occasions. In their last three competitive visits to the national stadium they failed to oblige at odds on against Wigan, Hull and Reading.
Tim Sherwood seems the kind of manager who will thrive on these big days. He’s won 50% of his matches as Aston Villa manager and has beaten the likes of Liverpool and Tottenham in recent weeks. Put faith in Villa causing Arsenal problems on Saturday and lay the Gunners at 1.57 on the 90 minute market with Matchbook.
Serie A can throw up some odd results at the end of the season, and this weekend there are lots of teams to lay at short odds. Roberto Mancini’s Inter have had a difficult season and go into the final week in 8th place. Empoli are their opponents on Sunday night and that will be far from straight-forward.
Maurizio Sarri’s side beat Napoli a few weeks ago, drew with Sampdoria last week and gave Fiorentina a tough match earlier in the month. Inter are looking to avoid a third straight defeat and they’re worth laying at 1.58 at Matchbook.
