Villa Are Villains For Four Fifths Of All FA Cup Punters

Aston Villa upset the odds by defeating Liverpool in the FA Cup semi-final and in the process upset a number of football punters. £4 was wagered at William Hill on Liverpool at 8/13 to every £1 wagered on Aston Villa at 5/1.


They may have caused an upset against Liverpool, but they are up against it again in the final with Arsenal the red-hot favourites at 3/10 and Villa 12/5 to lift the trophy.


“Aston Villa have done fantastically well but they will be huge underdogs once again when they head out at Wembley on 30th May,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


To win the FA Cup: 3/10 Arsenal; 12/5 Aston Villa
