Betting Tip: Backing Arsenal win with 3 goals at 7/2 with Betfair

Arsenal are a club in crisis, and despite the huge gulf in class between them and Lincoln, this is not exactly the best kind of game for them to play in the current situation. The Gunners cannot silence their critics whatever happens; win and they are doing as they should, but if they lose then it will be one of the biggest upsets in the competition’s history and there will be no place to hide for boss Arsene Wenger.

But it was the same against Sutton United in the last round and they eventually pulled through despite a tough evening. This time, they’re at the Emirates Stadium, meaning they don’t have to deal with the cramped dressing rooms as they did at Gander Green Lane. Instead, the venue of this encounter will have the opposite impact on Lincoln, who will not be expecting to progress and will look at this game as their final, enjoying the day out.

Such an occasion can have one of two impacts on smaller sides. Either they will be inspired to run faster and play harder, or they will freeze at the magnitude of the game. From Danny Cowley’s point of view, it is important his players stay focussed on the game and do not get distracted by the crowd. One thing this game won’t have that it may if Lincoln were at home is the hostility from the crowd in support of the home team, and with the frustration they are feeling towards Wenger, that is something Lincoln can use to their advantage.

For Arsenal, it is important to keep the ball on the ground and stretch the play. Lincoln are not used to playing on a pitch so big and will tire easily, especially if the home side press them high and keep them chasing the ball. The onus is them to get this game won, and they will no doubt start fast. Expect an intense game, but Arsenal to edge away with it. Offering such a precise prediction is a risk, but there is definite value in backing a three-goal win here.
