Preview: Arsenal London – Middlesbrough (FA Cup, 15.02.2015)

Arsenal London is on course of defending their FA Cup title as they get ready to host Middlesbrough on Emirates. The visitors may as well be called the revelation of this tournament after they managed to win against Manchester City by displaying a fighting spirit the Premier League champions lacked completely. Check the list of Asian bookmakers offered at BET-IBC and chose one to bet on this match.


Both Arsenal and Middlesbrough won with the same score against Man City: 2-0, but this team, the hosts, have built this season is one of the strongest they have had in recent years, and even amidst many injuries scares, an in-form Cazorla, Ozil, and Sanchez can decide a match on their own any day of the week. The hosts have had a relatively easy run so far in the competition and perhaps Middlesbrough will be their first real test, where the Gunners might want to tighten up the defensive line in the last 15 minutes to avoid late heartbreak. If Sanchez will be fit enough to play, maybe Welbeck could start up front, as Giroud has not been a fan or tipster favorite in recent games.

Arsenal have 1.20 odds to qualify, Middlesbrough 4.10 which is far better than their odds to win, which Ladbrokes has set to 7.00. The Gunners have 1.44 odds to win; 1.36 to score first and 2.05 for both halves. Giroud has 2.00 odds to score, Sanchez 2.15, Welbeck 2,30 and Akpom with Walcott both have 2.62 in the same market. For Middlesbrough, the goalscorer betting market looks like this: Bamford has 4.75 odds to score, Vossen and Kike 5.00, while Leadbitter and Tomlin both have 6.00 odds to score. We are going to bet 7 units on both teams to score and Arsenal to win with 3.10 odds from Ladbrokes, the best known and respected bookmaking company.
