Arsenal now FA Cup favourites 15/8

Olivier Giroud scored twice against Boro at the weekend


Arsenal's victory over Championship side Middlesbrough in the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon see them emerge as firm favourites at 15/8 to go all the way in the competition.

The North London side went through to the last eight courtesy of goals from Olivier Giroud and back-to-back success in the competition following last year’s triumph looks a distinct possibility, however Liverpool and Manchester United remain the biggest threats at best odds as low as 14/5 and 3/1 respectively.

Bradford are having a remarkable run in the competition and following their 4-2 defeat of Chelsea in the fourth round and 2-0 triumph over Sunderland at the weekend. Their price has understandably been slashed from 125/1 to just 40/1 to manage what many would have considered the impossible only a few short weeks ago.

Indeed, Sunderland were the third highest backed side in the UK at odds of 10/11 to beat the League One outfit. Indeed, the Bantams went into the weekend as huge outsiders at 125/1 to win the competition and although they are undoubtedly still massive outsiders, their fans can once again start dreaming of a trip to Wembley.
