A look at Hull’s betting odds
Hull have already proved in the opening weeks of the season that they will be no pushovers, especially when playing on home soil.
The Tigers sprung a surprise on the opening day of the campaign when beating reigning champions Leicester and then held Manchester United for 92 minutes, until substitute Marcus Rashford stole a stoppage-time winner.
These results bode well for their chances of at least competing with Arsenal, which is something they failed to do when facing the Gunners in the FA Cup earlier in 2016, as they slumped to a 4-0 defeat.
The odds for Hull to beat Arsenal look justified at 5/1.
A look at Arsenal’s betting odds
Arsenal made fairly light work of the newly-promoted clubs last term, winning five of their six games against such opposition without conceding.
The odds for Arsenal to beat Hull are 1/2, but there are more attractive prices on offer for those willing to be a bit more imaginative with their betting strategies.
It is 11/8 that Arsene Wenger’s men secure another win to nil, while the 16/5 available on the draw/Arsenal in the half-time/full-time market looks enticing based on how watertight the Tigers have been throughout the opening 45 minutes of matches so far this season.
