EFL Cup Betting Tips

The newly rebranded EFL Cup (League Cup) gets underway in August, with Manchester City the defending champions. City, now under the stewardship of Pep Guardiola, will be looking for their third title in four seasons when they begin their defence, but they will not enter until the third round. Liverpool will also be keen to go one better than last season where they were beaten finalists – going down on penalties.  The first round in August will only feature teams in the Championship and below however and may see some early surprises as clubs try to find their best starting lineups.

The EFL Cup final is in February so presents an opportunity for clubs to get some silverware under their belts early on. With several new managers in the Premier League it could make this tournament more attractive as they look for a positive start at their new clubs, whilst the likes of Everton, Southampton and West Ham will all surely be keen to challenge for a rare piece of silverware with some of the so-called bigger clubs often favouring other more prestigious tournaments.

 Any team is capable of upsetting their opposition in this competition and this has shown with some huge underdog prices on our accumulators in seasons gone by. In recent years Sheffield United have upset the odds by reaching the semi-finals despite only being in League One whilst Bradford City reached the final whilst still in League Two so it is always an intriguing competition to watch.
