William Hill Scottish Cup/FA Cup: Will An Outsider Be Able To Defy The Odds?

The semi-finals of both the FA Cup and Scottish Cup take place this weekend and William Hill (who are the betting partners of the FA Cup and title sponsors of the Scottish Cup) make Arsenal and Celtic the two favourites to lift the trophies at 4/5 and 4/9 to win the respective competitions.

In the William Hill Scottish Cup, it is 7/10 that we see a Celtic/Hibs final while it is 1/2 for an Arsenal/Liverpool final in the FA Cup. It is 13/8 for all four to make their finals.

“This weekend there will be some fantastic football played at both the Scottish and English national venues and while the odds suggest Celtic, Hibs, Arsenal and Liverpool will qualify for the finals, Cup football always throws up an upset along the way,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
