This year’s English FA Cup has been boiled down to just two teams - Arsenal and Hull.

Arsenal qualified for the final after beating Wigan Athletic 2-1, though they needed to go to penalty kicks to do it. Hull City, on the other hand, defeated Sheffield United 5-3.

Arsenal, which is one of the top clubs in the English Premier League, is the clear favourite to win on Saturday, May 17th. Let’s take a look at the current betting odds:

Arsenal, 1.50
Draw, 4.00
Hull, 7.00

To give you an idea of the strength of both clubs, Arsenal currently sits in 4th place in the English Premier League with a record of 23-7-7, while Hull City is in 16th place with a record of 10-7-20. Hull City has to be overjoyed that they will not be relegated from the EPL this season, and it will be interesting to see if they can carry this positivity over into the FA Cup Final match against Arsenal.

Here are the odds to “lift the trophy”:

Arsenal, 1.28
Hull, 3.50

Arsenal is obviously seen as having the more talented team, though Hull City has outperformed expectations in the FA Cup so far and has absolutely nothing to lose. Everybody is expecting Arsenal to win this match, but practically nobody has Hull City winning.

Can Hull City defy the odds and win the FA Cup on May 17th, or will Arsenal prevail?
