Now that the Champions League is gone for Manchester United, it’s head down in the FA Cup on the weekend for them.

They will be catching a Brighton side who have found a good bit of form lately though.

Man Utd 3/10, Draw 4/1, Brighton 10/1* (betting odds taken on March 14th, 2018 at 3:46 p.m.)
Manchester United v Brighton FA Cup Betting Tips
Manchester United limped out of the Champions League in midweek at home against Sevilla. So all they have left now for the season is the FA Cup. The strange thing with the Red Devils is that they are playing well only in patches in games, adopting a negative, ponderous approach most of the time. Still, they will expect to find themselves in the semi-finals of the FA Cup at the expense of Brighton. Manchester United are pretty reliable on home soil having won five of their last six there (L1) and suffering only two losses all season at home across all competitions. They have been really tight at the back as well for the most part and Manchester United to win to nil at Ladbrokes is a decent option at even money odds* (betting odds taken on March 14th, 2018 at 3:46 p.m.). So far in the FA Cup, the Red Devils have beaten Derby, Yeovil and Huddersfield without conceding.
They have won their last three home games against Brighton by 1-0 scoreline and that option is at 11/2 odds with Ladbrokes with only the 2-0 for them in at a shorter price at 24/5* (betting odds taken on March 14th, 2018 at 3:46 p.m.). That was the scoreline earlier this season when United played hosts to Brighton in the Premier League and also in their last FA Cup meeting which was in 1993. Manchester United hold a W4 D2 record from their six previous FA Cup matches against Brighton. Looking back at the head to head, United have won their last four on home soil against the Seagulls without shipping a goal.
Brighton can be pretty pleased with their progress through to the FA Cup quarter-finals as well as their current league form which has them in 11th in the Premier League. The Seagulls have lost just one of their last eight games across all competitions (D5 D2) so they have been playing well. The last time that they kept a clean sheet though was back in a 1-0 win at Middlesbrough in the FA Cup fourth round at the end of January. That’s none in their following seven games. Away from the Amex Brighton’s record isn’t great with just three road wins all season in all competitions. They are W1 D3 L2 in their last six on the road and have failed to net in seven of their last ten away from the south coast. Both teams not to score in the fixture with Ladbrokes is at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on March 14th, 2018 at 3:46 p.m.).
Who will win – Manchester United v Brighton FA Cup Predictions
Brighton aren’t likely going to have enough at Old Trafford to pull off a shock in this one. United can play well when they want to but still, it would not be a huge surprise if they go and take nothing more than a 1-0 win in this.
