FA Cup: Our Live Betting Pick This WeekendPublished May 11, 2013 by OCR Editor
Manchester City plays Wigan Athletic in FA Cup Final on Saturday at 5:15pm.
Most weekends have a good range of live betting events, but this Saturday, 5:15pm UK time at Wembley, one of the year's BIGGEST SPORTING EVENTS will take place: the FA Cup Final, between all-conquering Manchester City and English Premier League relegation-strugglers Wigan Athletic.
Man City will be playing in the final for the 10th time and will be searching for their sixth victory overall and second in three years. Wigan, on the other hand, have never featured in the Cup Final, and are hoping to avoid the fate suffered by City in 1926 when they made the final and were relegated in the same season.
Both managers have an opportunity make history: City's Roberto Mancini is hoping to become the first Italian to win the FA Cup twice and to make it four in a row for Italian managers (Carlo Ancelotti, Chelsea, 2010, Mancini, 2011, Roberto Di Matteo, Chelsea, 2012). Wigan's Roberto Martinez would become the first Spanish manager to win the Cup since Liverpool's Rafa Benitez in 2006.
In Bet365 Sports' pre-game betting, Man City is 1/6 to lift the trophy and Wigan is 9/2. In the 90-minute full match result odds, City is 1/3, Wigan is 8/1, and a draw is paying 17/4.
