As it is shown by the odds, there are no clear favourites here.

Read on for more Leicester vs Chelsea predictions and Chelsea vs Leicester odds. We also have some information about where to find the best Leicester vs Chelsea live streaming.
We start our Chelsea vs Leicester preview with a few words about the bookies' favourites. It is understandable why most experts and fans treat Chelsea as contenders here. Once Thomas Tuchel became their coach, The Blues started to play amazingly well – they have already come back to the Premier League's top four and reached the Champions League semi-final. This is why bookmakers such as Bet365 see FA Cup final favourites in them.
Obviously, it’s going to be a privilege to lead the team out to the final. I think in terms of the performance, I feel we deserved it. I’m delighted for the players. They’ve shown that they’re constantly learning. I said to them last year after the semi-final loss that failure is an actual real integral part of succeeding and even though it’s tough and it’s difficult we’ve got to take it and learn from it. - Brendan Rodgers before the FA Cup final, The Guardian
On their road to the final Chelsea won against Morecambe, Luton Town, Barnsley, Sheffield United, and Manchester City. In these five matches, they let their opponents score only one goal. Their best game was in the semi-final where they were strong enough to outperform Manchester City, denying them the chance to win the treble this season. It is also worth noting that Chelsea played in the three of four last FA Cup finals but they won only once – in 2018 against Manchester United.

Although Chelsea has everything to win, we can't underestimate Leicester. After their successful race for the title in the 2015-16 season, they have always been close to the Premier League's top four. This season they play very good football and thanks to some weaker performances of Liverpool, Tottenham, and Arsenal, they have a big chance to qualify for the next season's Champions League. However, we have to remember that the Foxes were surprisingly beaten by Slavia Prague in the Europa League's round of 32. That may be one of the reasons why bookies such as William Hill treat them as outsiders.
For Leicester, this year's FA Cup final is a great opportunity to win the first trophy since they won the Premier League in 2016. They earned the ticket to the final after beating Stoke City, Brentford, Brighton, Manchester United and Southampton. Even the oldest Leicester fans may have trouble remembering their last FA Cup final appearance as it was over 50 years ago. That should be enough motivation for the Foxes to bring their best game and try to win against Chelsea. Read on to get more FA Cup final betting tips and betting odds for Chelsea vs Leicester.
We already mentioned the strength that lays in Chelsea's defence, but Leicester is also a team that can be very well-organised and effective in preventing their opponents from scoring goals. In January the Foxes showed that in the match against Chelsea where they won 2-0. Overall, in the last eight games between these clubs, we saw more than two goals scored only twice. This is why one of the best Chelsea vs Leicester betting predictions is that there will be under 2.5 goals that are available with bookies such as Unibet.
