Arsenal face the in-form Championship team Cardiff on Monday night knowing that Burnley await them in the Fifth Round. Sheffield United or Hull will play the winners of that one for a place in the Semi Finals and an appearance at Wembley.
Paddy Power have the Gunners at 4/1 to win the FA Cup this season, there was slight movement in the market with Everton beating Aston Villa. But the betting is dominated by the Premier League big guns and the top four in the market will all fancy their chances of making it at least as far as the Semi Finals if not further.
If Arsenal do win on Monday night they have the incentive of possibly two more home ties before a Semi-Final appearance at Wembley. And of course, the further Arsenal go in the competition their price to lift the cup will be cut.
