Our favourite FC Edinburgh vs Arbroath betting tips and picks

If you are not sure what is the right bet for the FC Edinburgh vs Arbroath duel, check our top betting predictions for this match:

Arbroath to Win

Even though these two teams are just one league apart right now since Arbroath plays in Championship and FC Edinburgh in League One, the difference in quality between them is pretty clear. After all, Edinburgh only got promoted to League One this season, while Arbroath was two points away from playing in the Premiership.

With that in mind, we expect the guests to take the win in this game. After all, they already one both of their matches in the group in League Cup, including the game against St Mirren.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Three of the last five head-to-head duels between FC Edinburgh and Arbroath have gone under 2.5 total goals, so we expect the same to happen in this match too.

Furthermore, only one of the three games these two teams played so far in the League Cup combined has gone over 2.5 total goals, so we don’t expect this to be a high-scoring affair either.

Both Teams to Score – No

We saw both teams score in just two of the last five h2h meetings between FC Edinburgh and Arbroath, so we don’t expect this to happen on Saturday either.

Furthermore, both teams have scored in just one of the three matches played by both teams together in League Cup this season, so we expect this trend to continue in their next duel.

FC Edinburgh vs Arbroath preview: Can the home team cause an upset?

FC Edinburgh

Last season turned out to be a very successful one for FC Edinburgh since they managed to earn promotion to League One after going through the playoffs and beating Annan Athletic in the finals 3-2 on aggregate. Meanwhile, the team started their season in League Cup with a win over Airdrieonians after penalties.

Arbroath

After they finished the season just two points behind Kilmarnock and direct promotion to the Premiership, Arbroath disappointed in the playoffs and failed to go past Inverness in the playoff semi-finals. They are certainly among the favourites to get the promotion this season as well, especially since they had a great start in League Cup with a couple of wins in the fist two rounds.
