League Cup Matchday Betting Tips PT 2- By A.J. Ryder on September 22, 2015 17:35 GMT
The Black Cats can be backed at a 6/1 price tag right now and thats a long way off from happening if you’re going on genuine class - neither side boasts much form in their past few games - and the draw is trading at an 18/5 margin and that’s probably the best that Sunderland can hope for.
Aston Villa take on Birmingham in a local derby with the Villains getting the edge from the bookmakers with an 11/10 price tag while Birmingham trade at 3/1. Fulham take on Stoke City and are the slight underdogs here in what looks to be a pretty open match from a betting perspective. Fulham trade at 2/1 while the draw sits at a 5/2 margin. Stoke City are a 17/11 listing.
Hull City vs Swansea looks to be another really close one as the Welsh side get the slimmest of edges from the bookmakers with a 7/4 margin against Hull’s 15/8. The draw is a 12/5 shout and could be the play if both of these sides wind up cancelling each other out.
Leicester City have been on a real role lately and so have West Ham - they both face off here with Leicester available at a strange price of 23/18 while West Ham are a full 5/2 and the draw trades at an 11/4 margin. Middlesbrough haven’t been seen in the Premier League for a while now but they get the edge against Wolves here with a 4/6 listing against their 11/2 price.
Preston North End are playing host to Bournemouth and it’s the Premier League side who are getting the edge here with a 7/5 listing against PNE’s price tag of about 12/5 with most major bookmakers. The draw can be backed at 27/11.
And in a fixture that somehow kicks off slightly later than all of the others, Everton go into that one as favourites to topple Reading. You’ll find the Toffees available at a 6/4 price while Reading are a solid 11/5. The draw can be backed at 27/11.
