EFL Cup Betting Tips

Free EFL Cup Betting Tips

The EFL Cup (formerly known as Capital One Cup) offers punters plenty of opportunity to find betting value right through the football season. While many of the top clubs don’t take the competition seriously until the late stages, clubs from the lower divisions see it as a chance to compete with the big clubs and maybe pinch a big win along the way to the Final. If you know your lower division football, this can give you a great advantage to profit from betting on the EFL Cup. An in-depth knowledge of team lineups can see punters regularly get the best of the bookmakers when it comes to EFL Cup betting.

Generally considered to be the ‘second’ domestic cup competition in England, nevertheless even the biggest Premier League sides have begun to take this tournament seriously. With the winners of the English Football League Cup rewarded with a qualification place in the Europa League, this has made winning this competition more attractive.

As with the FA Cup, the EFL Cup has gained a reputation for shock results and lower league sides progressing at the expense of their higher league opponents. The ‘magic of the cup’ applies to this tournament too! However, many times in recent years the winners of the EFL Cup have all been high placed Premier League sides, but that’s not to say there are no value bets to found in this competition anymore. Our bettingexpert tipsters offer their EFL Cup tips and predictions, including well researched League Cup betting previews, with many successfully backing a lower league side to progress.

As well as offering tips on the Outright Winner, our tipsters offer their League Cup betting predictions on other favourite markets. Amongst the most popular are Half-Time Score, Anytime Goalscorer and Total Goals Over/Under. What makes our tipsters even more special is they give their EFL Cup tips and predictions for absolutely free!

Although the FA Cup is considered to be the primary domestic cup competition for English sides, the League Cup is still seen to be a great way of winning some silverware. Let’s take a look at the most successful sides in English Football League Cup history:
