EFL Cup fourth round betting preview
We’re into the fourth round of the EFL Cup and there are sixteen teams left competing for this domestic English cup, with the latest games taking place on 30 October, 31 October and 1 November.
On the Tuesday, we have Bournemouth clashing with Norwich City and the Cherries will fancy their chances of taking another step towards Wembley.
Eddie Howe continues to do a strong job with his team and bet365 make them the 8/13 favourites to beat a Canaries side who are having a good season of their own, with the Championship side priced at 9/2 to win.
Burton and Nottingham Forest clash in a Midlands derby and the League One side are 12/5 outsiders to win this game, with the Tricky Trees having already claimed the scalp of Newcastle thus far and they’re 23/20 to win this one.
Leicester and Southampton meet in the only all-Premier League match on Tuesday and it’s unsurprising to see the Foxes trading at 8/11 although Southampton won at Everton in the previous game and the Saints are 7/2.
TUESDAY 30TH OCTOBER
AFC Bournemouth 19:45 Norwich City
Burton Albion 19:45 Nottingham Forest
Leicester City 19:45 Southampton
Arsenal look to have an easy game on Wednesday and they are 1/8 with bet365 to beat a Tangerines side who currently ply their trade in League One, with odds of 16/1 available about the outsiders.
Chelsea clash with Derby in the televised encounter and they are strong favourites at 1/5 to beat a team who will have Chelsea loanees Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori operating for them.
The Rams are a 14/1 poke to claim a victory at Stamford Bridge and they did secure a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford before going through on penalties, with bet365 going 11/2 about the clash ending all square.
There’s a London derby between West Ham and Tottenham, with Spurs slight favourites at 13/8 although they’re likely to field a weakened side against a Hammers side who might be a popular order at 8/5.
Middlesbrough go up against Crystal Palace at the Riverside Stadium and the home side look a decent shout at 23/10, with Roy Hodgson potentially taking a dim view of the competition considering their Premier League plight.
WEDNESDAY 31ST OCTOBER
Arsenal 19:45 Blackpool
Chelsea 19:45 Derby County
West Ham United 19:45 Tottenham Hotspur
Middlesbrough 20:00 Crystal Palace
Finally, Manchester City have received special dispensation to entertain Fulham on Thursday and they are 1/10 to beat the Cottagers despite Pep Guardiola being likely to field a reserve side.
The Cottagers can’t stop conceding although they are 18/1 with bet365 to pull off a shock win.
THURSDAY 1ST NOVEMBER
Manchester City 19:45 Fulham
