TAB Betting Blog: Chelsea to have the edge against Arsenal in FA Cup final, live on ESPN

2020 FA Cup Final - Arsenal vs. Chelsea (LIVE on ESPN - Sunday, 2:30am AEST)

Two of the biggest clubs in English football will battle for the 2019/2020 FA Cup at Wembley Stadium early Sunday morning when Arsenal and Chelsea clash in the final.

A fortnight ago, Arsenal produced a stunning upset when they defeated Manchester City 2-0 in their semifinal, which thwarted the Sky Blues' attempt to secure consecutive FA Cup triumphs.

Chelsea recorded a minor surprise when they beat Manchester United 3-1 in their semifinal two weeks ago.

The Gunners experienced a mixed bag in the EPL upon resumption with five wins and one draw from their 10 fixtures.

Arsenal's only win of note was a 2-1 home victory over Liverpool while there were notable defeats to Manchester City (3-0 away) and Tottenham (2-1 away).

The Blues performed better in the EPL post COVID-19 with six wins from nine encounters.

Chelsea managed to account for Manchester City 2-1 at home early in the resumption but unlike Arsenal, Chelsea lost to Liverpool (5-3 away) when they met in Round 37.

Neither side has a decisive advantage in recent EPL clashes but in last year's UEFA Europa League final, Chelsea thrashed Arsenal 4-1 in Baku, Azerbaijan.

In this battle of London clubs, Chelsea might just have the advantage over Arsenal.

NRL Round 12 - Bulldogs vs. Eels (Sunday, 2pm AEST)

There is a bit of value to be found when Canterbury and Parramatta do battle on Sunday afternoon.

While the Eels look too strong on paper and are justifiably short-priced favourites, you get the feeling the Bulldogs will give them a run for their money.

Under interim coach Steve Georgallis, Canterbury should have beaten St George-Illawarra a fortnight ago, but then backed that effort up with a huge upset victory over Newcastle last Sunday.

Realistically, the $6.20 about them in Head-to-Head betting is probably about right, but they seem to match up well with Parramatta.

Being bitter rivals, there has been little separating both teams in their past five clashes despite the Bulldogs' roster issues in recent seasons.

Three of the past five encounters between these sides has been decided by just six points while another saw the margin being eight points.

Of the past five games, Canterbury has won two of those so off the back of that, it's worth tipping a 1-12 margin in favour of Parramatta.

Tip: Parramatta to defeat Canterbury by 1-12 points in normal time at $3.60
