EFL Cup Betting
The EFL Cup, also known as either the Carabao Cup and the League Cup, celebrates its 60th year this season and for the last six decades its been a tournament full of surprises and great matches, which makes it perfect for betting. The competition is open to all 92 clubs in England’s top 4 divisions and while the major clubs have naturally won the EFL Cup quite a few times, it has also seen some spectacular surprises, such as when Swansea beat the League 2 team Bradford in 2013, or when Birmingham won 2-1 against Arsenal with a late goal from Obafemi Martins in 2011. In recent years, it’s become a tournament that even the top teams strive to take home. However, upsets are still plentiful in the EFL Cup, which, in turn, means great odds throughout all seven rounds, when you place a bet on the EFL Cup with bwin.
EFL Cup winner odds
Liverpool are the most successful club in the history of the EFL Cup, having won it a record 8 times. Manchester City, though, aren’t far behind with 6 wins and have absolutely dominated the competition in recent years, lifting the trophy in 4 of the last 5 seasons. In fact, the winners of the League Cup have all been top-flight sides, at least since 1991, when Sheffield Wednesday, from what was then the Second Division, beat a Manchester United side that were starting to find their wings under Alex Ferguson. This naturally means that the winner odds for the EFL Cup are in favour of another Premier League team to win the cup in 2021, however, the history of the tournaments, means that you can never entirely rule out a good cup run from a Championship team or a less successful Premiership team. Can an underdog like Stoke, Brentford or a strong-looking Everton team take home the EFL trophy this season or will Manchester City assert their dominance yet again? Choose your outright winner of the EFL Cup on bwin and find great odds to match your bet.
