Arsenal are, as you would expect, the favourites going into this final with odds of 4/9
but you would be a fool to rule out Steve Bruce's Hull City who have made great strides in their first season back in the Premier League. Wigan surprised Manchester City last season so why not Hull at 6/1
? There must be a winner but a draw after 90 minutes will also fetch odds of 7/2
There will be an undoubted pressure upon the shoulders of Arsene Wenger and his Gunners this weekend because another season without silverware will only be seen as failure. Arsenal will be keen to avoid failure at all costs so a 3-1 win (12/1
) and a 1-0 victory (9/2
) look like good bets. A cagey 0-0 attracts odds of 10/1
whilst an ambitious but possible 2-1 Hull victory is currently worth 20/1
on Sky Bet.
An FA Cup final of this importance can be won by moments of genius and the Gunners are certainly not lacking in talent. Olivier Giroud is the obvious goalscorer in the Arsenal ranks and for the French striker to score the first goal of the game you can get odds of 7/2
. However, in what will be his first English cup final, Mesut Ozil will be looking to shine and for the former Real Madrid midfielder to score at any point currently has odd of 5/2
. Could Hull spring a surprise? Possibly and why not through striker Matty Fryatt who has odds of 10/1
to score the last goal of the game.
There are plenty of other odds available on Sky Bet for this game such as:
- Alex Bruce to score first? 50/1
- Aaron Ramsey to score and for Arsenal to win? 2/1
- Either manager to be sent to the stands? 28/1
Our FA Cup bet of the weekend however is going to be an ambitious one in the favour of Hull City. We think Arsenal will score first through Santi Cazorla but Hull City to fight back and win 2-1. That bet is worth 230/1
on Sky Bet right now.
