Arsenal play host to Hull in the FA Cup

With Arsenal looking back to their best at the weekend with a 4-0 drubbing of Blackburn in the Premier League tonight’s FA Cup match against Hull (starts at 7.45pm live on Setanta) is likely to go the Gunners’ way.

Since 1997/98, Arsenal are undefeated at home in the FA Cup and have 16 wins and eight draws in these games.

In this period 12 Premier League teams have visited the Gunners with an even split between wins and draws.

Where there might be some value is in the half-time/full-time market since opening halves have remained tight affairs with eight opening 45-minute draws (seven at 0-0). It could therefore pay to have a bet on Draw/Arsenal with BetUK.
