The 2016-17 FA Cup semi-finals take place this weekend with the two matches scheduled for Saturday and Sunday at Wembley - and we have picked out our three best bets on the famous old competition at this stage.

1) Chelsea to win in 90 minutes against Tottenham Hotspur @ 7/4 with Marathonbet (17:15 BST Saturday kick-off)


Chelsea’s 2-0 defeat at Manchester United last weekend should have stung them into realising they have won nothing yet this season, and they are fancied to get back on track at the expense of the team chasing them all the way in the Premier League title race.

It is being suggested in some quarters that whoever wins this tie will go on to complete the Double, or at the very least win the league, and while that is clearly a premature conclusion to draw, Chelsea have been England’s best team for most of the season and we will back them to show why.

2) Arsenal/Draw double chance against Manchester City @ Evens with Sportingbet (15:00 BST Sunday kick-off)


A top-quality semi-final line-up contains four of the top six and although Arsenal have had all manner of problems recently, they are still very backable to double our money by not losing to City in 90 minutes.

Whatever the future holds for manager Arsene Wenger he has a terrific FA Cup record, his side having lost only one of their last 19 ties in the competition, and they have been beaten by City only once in their latest eight meetings.

3) Arsenal to win the FA Cup @ 5/1 with 188BET


As mentioned in the recommended bet above, there is not a huge amount between all four high-class semi-finalists and so it could be worth going for a touch of value for an outright bet at this stage.

Arsenal are the clear outsiders based on their league form, but cup football is different and if they can get past City their odds to lift the trophy for a third time in four seasons will shorten considerably and make the current 5/1 look a steal.
