Capital One League Cup Odds Report – Man City are the outright betting favourites to win this season’s competition but there is far better value lower down the market says FC Bodog.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side are trading at 3.25 odds but that’s not a price we’re keen to get involved with.
As we saw on Tuesday night with Arsenal and Chelsea eliminated by Sheffield Wednesday and Stoke City respectively this is a tournament set up for shock results. And we expect them to continue.
The bookies were rubbing their hands together with glee as Arsene Wenger’s and Jose Mourinho’s teams were turfed out of the competition and it is the conquerors of Chelsea who we particularly fancy to go a long way in this season’s Capital One League Cup.
Stoke seem to have all the right ingredients for a side with designs on winning a cup and at Capital One League Cup odds of 15.00 they make plenty of appeal. We tipped them to beat Chelsea last night.
They’ve got quality attacking players like Jon Walters, Marko Arnautovic, Xherdan Shaqiri and Bojan who can score against anyone, an inspirational captain in Ryan Shawcross and a fine goalkeeper in Jack Butland.
Everton are another side who rate a far better bet than market leaders Man City, Man Utd 4.00 and Liverpool 6.00. Like Stoke Roberto Martinez’s men have plenty of match-winners such as Romelu Lukaku, Ross Barkley, Gerard Deulofeu and Kevin Mirallas.
If the Toffees get a good last 16 draw their current 11.00 Capital One League Cup odds will look very generous.
Meanwhile, Chelsea’s Mourinho cut a defiant figure after the penalty shoot-out defeat at Stoke and said that the effort his players put in proves that his players are fully behind him.
“What the players did tonight is face the people that write and say, ‘you are stupid’. You think the players did not give everything to win the game? That is really sad.
“A few months ago I won a few matches and I was champion. People were saying there are things more important than results.
“Now, people say results are the most important thing. It’s a contradiction.”
Meanwhile, online sportsbook Bodog report that the “favourites treble” of Liverpool (1.60) vs Bournemouth, Man City (1.44) v Crystal Palace and Man Utd (1.40) v Middlesbrough is a popular bet.
Liverpool will be without Christian Beneteke as the Reds look to secure their first win under Jurgen Klopp.
