Two of the world's biggest clubs will face off tomorrow, June 3rd, at 10:00 AM EST in the FA Cup Final. It will be the first time in history that Manchester City and Manchester United square off in the FA Cup final, and Man U will do everything it can to stop Man City from accomplishing the very rare treble.

Of course, the Treble won't be clinched for Man City with an FA Cup win–they’ll still need to win the Champions League Final–but the way they’ve been playing, it looks more and more possible by the day.

FA Cup Final Odds

As of right now, DraftKings Sportsbook has Manchester City as a strong favorite in the match, currently sitting at -205 (in regular time). Manchester United is at +475, and a draw (or the game to go into overtime) is at +350.

Man City just becomes an even stronger favorite when looking at the Draw No Bet line, currently at -500 (Man U at +350).

Man City’s star striker Erling Haaland is the most likely to score, with his odds to be an anytime scorer currently sitting at an astounding -190. Haaland has scored 52 goals across all competitions this season and has scored 8 goals in his last 13 games.

Marcus Rashford has the best odds amongst Manchester United players to net a goal, currently sitting at +240. Rashford scored 17 games across all Premier League games this season but has only scored 3 goals in his last 11 contests.

DraftKings Sportsbook thinks both teams will score (YES at -130) but the correct score with the best odds is Manchester City to win by a score of 2-0 (currently at +550).

FA Cup Final Best Bets

Player Parlays: Erling Haaland To Score And Team to Win (-110)

The odds aren’t too sexy but it’s a nice way to trim down on the -190 that you’d have to play in order for Haaland just to score a goal. However, I truly believe that City will come out on top–especially if Haaland is able to net an early goal. If you want to hedge it a little bit though, I recommended you take…

Man United to win AND Over 1.5 total goals

If United is going to win, they’re going to HAVE to score at least two goals. If Haaland won't score for City, then someone else will figure it out–so they’ll need two goals to grab a win. I’m not nearly as confident in this bet as I am the Haaland parlay, but it won’t hurt to sprinkle a little something something on it as well.
