Published on January 29th, 2016 12:56 pm EST

Arsenal, which is enjoying a very strong English Premier League campaign so far this season, will be playing host to Burnley in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday. The winner will advance to the fifth round, which will be played on the weekend of the 20th in February, while the loser will go home.

Despite likely resting a number of key players, Arsenal will still hold a significant talent advantage. Here are the current odds to win on Saturday:

Arsenal, 1.40
Draw, 4.50
Burnley, 8.00

Here are the odds to qualify for the fifth round:

Arsenal, 1.14
Burnley, 5.00

It bears mentioning that there can be some pretty crazy results in FA Cup play, due to the fact that many of the top teams will rest their star players.

According to the oddsmakers, Arsenal has a 75.19% chance of winning clean on Saturday, while Burley has just a 12.5% chance of winning on the road. A successful £100 bet on Burnley would yield a whopping £700 in profit if they were able to pull off the victory.

Burnley advanced to the fourth round after defeating Middlesbrough 2-1 on January 9th, 2016, while Arsenal earned their spot by defeating Sunderland 3-1.

Can Burnley pull off the victory on Saturday? How engaged in the contest will Arsenal be, especially given their current battle for the top spot in the English Premier League?
