Bookmaker Coral makes Ineos Team UK the odds on favourites at 2/5 to win the Prada Cup final and book their spot in the America's Cup final.
A UK team has never won the America's Cup.
They face Italian team Luna Rossa Challenge, who are 7/4 to win the Prada Cup.
The final begins on February 13th and ends on the 22nd, with one point given to the winner of each race in a best of thirteen format.
Ineos, with Sir Ben Ainslie at the helm, have won all six races up to this point and will face Team New Zealand if they qualify for the America's Cup final.
Coral spokesman Harry Aitkenhead told FreeTips.com: "Sir Ben Ainslie came onboard Team Ineos UK as the key cog in Sir Jim Ratcliffe's dream to win the America's Cup, and they are now right in the thick of it with a fantastic chance.
"Victory in the Prada Cup is needed, and we make them odds on to overcome Luna Rossa Challenge in their thirteen race series and seal a match-up against the defending New Zealand team."
