Chelsea v Southampton: Pick a Team and Get an 888Sport Price Boost for Sunday’s Semi Final

+18 / play responsibly / T&C apply

Our second FA Cup semi final of the weekend takes place on Sunday with Chelsea taking on a Southampton side and at first glance, this would seem to be more clear-cut than the Spurs v Manchester United game which kicks off 24 hours earlier.

There will still be interest from a betting point of view but if Chelsea win in 90 minutes then there won’t be too much value in their odds on price so this 888Sport new customer offer could be a welcome alternative. Under this deal, enhanced odds are available on either side with Chelsea’s win price going up to 6/1 or, you can claim a tempting 55/1 in the event of a Southampton victory.

Market Options

We mentioned that Chelsea are a short pick to win this game in 90 minutes and the best odds currently available on Antonio Conte’s men stand at 51/100 with MarathonBet. The 2016/17 Premier League champions are still targeting a Top Four finish this season while opponents Southampton are locked in a desperate relegation battle.

To underline the gulf in class, victory for the Saints in normal time is out at a top price of 7/1 with Unibet while the draw completes things at a best of 15/4 with Unibet again. Are those prices an indicator as to where the game will go? It’s up to you as to where you want to place your bets but if you’re interested in the price lifts offered by 888Sport, here’s what you need to do.

Signing On

You can only take up the offer if you do not already have any dealings with the 888 group and if that’s the case, you can head over from here to complete registration. It’s a fast and simple process that should take up no more than around two minutes of your time and when it’s complete, you can add some funds to cover the opening bet.

At this point there are some important points to remember and firstly, the minimum deposit set by this offer is £10.00. Please input the promo code 888ODDS when making the transfer but do not use Skrill or Neteller as they are specifically excluded and will render the deal null and void.

We suggest either a debit or credit card as these methods are perfectly OK and your money should free up instantly, leaving you ready to place your bet.

Betting and Payout Process

The amount that you have deposited should now be showing in the top right corner of the home page so you can now stake the fixed amount of £5.00 on either Chelsea or Southampton to win their FA Cup semi final on Sunday April 22, 2018. You can’t take both teams so make your choice and remember that the win must be in 90 minutes, excluding any extra time or penalties.

If, at the end of normal time, you’ve landed a winner, payment will work in the following, two-stage process.

  • A profit will be paid based on 888Sport’s standard market price on the win for the team in question and this will be made in cash.
  • The balance, up to whichever of those two price boosts is applicable, will come back as free bet tokens. These will arrive within 72 hours (usually much sooner) and they must beused within 7 days before they expire.

While that’s a full review of the main terms of this offer you can, if you prefer, check all ts and cs as they appear on the 888 promos page.

Take Your Pick

It’s very tempting to look at Southampton at that huge 55/1 price but can they pull off an upset? In a one-off cup tie anything can happen but the Saints’ form is poor with four defeats in their last five matches. Chelsea’s recent record is very mixed but they are the better side so should you play safer and aim for their enhanced odds of 6/1?

The choice is ultimately yours but either team carries a great price boost and there could be some excellent FA Cup enhanced profits in store for new customers to 888Sport.
