Bradford started this campaign from the second round, probably never dreaming to reach the finals. The team eliminated Watford City in that second round with 2-1, and met Burton Albion in the third and in extra time managed to prevail with 3-2. In the 4th round, the team met Wigan and after 0-0 in regular and extra time, Bradford advanced ahead with 4-2 with penalties. The quarter-finals came and it looked like Bradford’s time was over when their opponent was Arsenal, but after a 1-1 draw in regular and extra time again the team prevailed with penalties 3-2 and went to the semi-finals. There waiting for them was another Premier League team, Aston Villa who had crushed their opponent in the quarter-finals with 4-1. After 90 minutes Bradford came out victorious with 3-1, and in the return game the team lost only with 1-2, and went to the final with aggregate score 4-3. The underdog in all games made it to the final, where the price for winning it is 8.50 in regular time. The odds for Bradford to lift the trophy are @ 5.50 and we believe these hold a great value. After all Bradford have made it so far, past big Premier League names, they have just as good chances as Swansea.

Swansea also started this tournament from the second round, against Barnsley, winning with 3-1. In the third round the team faced Crawley Town, and after 90 minutes they managed to win with 3-2 and head to the fourth round where they met their first real challenge Liverpool. The match was won with 3-1 and Swansea managed to advance to the quarter-finals. While their opponent was a team from the Championship, Middlesbrough put an effort in the game, but at the end Swansea managed to prevail with the minimal 1-0. In the semi-finals it looked like it was over as their opponent was Chelsea, and the first game was on Stamford Bridge. Surprisingly Swansea won in the middle of London with 2-0 and managed to hold off a 0-0 in Wales. The team has odds to win the final @ 1.40 and lift the trophy @ 1.16. Though the team probably has slightly higher chance to win the match that their opponent, we do not believe that the Swans are that much of a favorite and their odds should be this low.
Despite both teams coming to the final by a surprise, we believe each of them has equal chances of winning it. However the odds for Bradford hold a great value, while those of Swansea hold nothing. Back Bradford to lift the trophy @ 5.50 and hope that this Cinderella story ends with a happy ending.
The Over 2.5 Goals also looks good @ 1.75 with bet365.
