FA Cup 4th Round – Brighton and Hove Albion vs Arsenal Betting Preview

Brighton head into this 4th round FA Cup tie with Arsenal in good form as they have only lost once in their past five outings. Their last match saw them brawling with Ipswich Town in a match they eventually came out 3-2 victors in. Brighton are currently 19th in the Championship and the play-off places look well out of their reach, their main priority for the remainder of the season will be to survive relegation although I’m sure they would love a cup run.

Arsenal are also in good form heading into this encounter as they have won their last three matches on the trot most notably their last game which saw them travel to the Etihad and ease to a comfortable 2-0 victory over the current Premier League champions. The Gunners are currently 5th in the Premiership just one point behind Manchester United who occupy that all important fourth and final Champions League place.

Brighton vs Arsenal Current Betting Odds Market

Brighton are massive underdogs in this game, which is no real surprise given the gulf in class between the two sides, if Brighton are to upset the Premier league outfit then they will start the game well and score the first goal. Bet365 offer the best price for Brighton to win @ 6/1 – £200 Matched Bonus Bets for New Customers.

The Draw could be a potential outcome given that the FA Cup usually produces surprise results in the early rounds and Premier League sides are often complacent and struggle to get the win. Bet365 offer the best odds for the draw @ 10/3 – £200 Matched Bonus Bets for New Customers.

Brighton vs Arsenal Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

Brighton come into this game in good form, looking at the result that Cambridge United pulled off against Manchester United on Friday Night I think Brighton will be inspired and will fancy their chances of at least earning a replay and an opportunity to play on the perfect Emirates surface.

Arsenal head into this game with a good amount of momentum and I think they will field a strong side that are capable of getting the job done and won’t take any chances against an energetic Brighton side. If Arsenal can create space and dominate possession then I think they will tire Brighton out and kill the game off in the second half.

My Banker for this game is going to be Arsenal race to 3 goals as they have the creativity to penetrate any defense in the Championship with ease.

My saver is going to be Alexis Sanchez first goalscorer.
