The home side are a rather chunky 9/2 at Coral as they look to book a big home tie with Portsmouth. Make no mistake, the crowd will be FC United’s 12th man at Gigg Lane, the atmosphere will be white hot in the sub-zero temperatures as FC United are reportedly looking at their biggest ever attendance of over 6,000.
Since the 1-1 draw at the Withdean, neither team have managed a game and a repeat stalemate is 10/3 (Betdaq) while an identical scoreline is 7/1 at Skybet. FC United can really get stuck into Brighton here despite their poor form of November, losing 4 games before drawing with Brighton.
You really wouldn’t bet against FCU scoring in front of a bumper crowd and the quality of Brighton could ensure a thriller, both teams to score is 5/6 (bet365) and a match with 3 or more goals is a 4/5 chance with 888sport.
However, the outside quote on FCU means there are some good odds involving the draw; FC United in the draw no bet market is 10/3 at but perhaps the more outstanding bet is FCU to simply avoid defeat in 90 minutes, a 6/5 chance at Boylesports and the bet of the match.
