Arsenal-Coventry City Betting: Back the Gunners to shoot down their visitors

Arsene Wenger’s side will be hoping to cruise to the next round of the English FA Cup when they welcome Pressley's men to the Emirates Stadium

Coventry City take a trip to north London to face English Premier League table-toppers, Arsenal, in Friday night’s English FA Cup fourth round game.

Arsenal come into this game with the intention of silencing their visitors after coming out victorious when they met last season in the Capital One Cup. It ended 6-1 in favour of Arsene Wenger’s men.

Ladbrokes is sure that the hosts will come out with a win from this encounter and they back them at odds of 1/9 (1.11) while their visitors are massive underdogs having being priced at long odds of 22/1 (23.00) to cause an upset at the Emirates stadium.

The same firm price the draw at 8/1 (9.00).

With Coventry not struggling in front of goal this season, it's worth looking at markets to find value in the Sky Blues scoring as both teams are available at 5/4 (2.25) to score according to Ladbrokes.

Pressley's side have scored in their last 11 matches and, with Arsenal conceding against the likes of Huddersfield, Leeds and Blackburn in the FA Cup in recent years, expect the Sky Blues to have something to cheer about.

Oliver Giroud is a 2/1 (3.00) play to find the back of the net in this encounter while his strike partner Nicklas Bendtner and Lukas Poldoski are tied at 3/1 (4.00) to get the curtain raiser.
