Top Premier League teams enter the fray in round three of the Capital One Cup, with Agbonlahor and Ki scorer shouts, and Royals tipped to upset Everton.
Round three of the Capital One Cup pits 32 teams against each other across two days, and eight of 16 ties take place on Tuesday. Bookies.com take a look at four bets that are worth a punt…
Agbonlahor a real Villan against Birmingham
Long-serving Aston Villa academy graduate Gabriel Agbonlahor loves scoring in the Second City derby against Birmingham City, with four strikes in his six career starts against them.
While this makes top anytime odds of 9/4 with bet365 for him to net in what is the Villans’ third Midlands match in 10 days, Agbonlahor has grabbed the last goal on three occasions, so the same bookie offers a superb best-price 7/1 that he rounds things off again in this Capital One Cup encounter.
BETTING TIP: Agbonlahor scores last @ 7/1 with bet365.
Good things come in threes for Foxes and Hammers
Two high-flying Premier League teams in Leicester City and West Ham United meet in Capital One Cup action, and three of their last four meetings have contained three goals.
Such an eventuality occurring again is a best bet of 16/5 with BetVictor, and the Foxes aren’t keeping many clean sheets having developed an entertaining style of play under Claudio Ranieri. The Hammers also have a new boss at the helm under Slaven Bilic, and he should be looking to make up for an early Europa League exit here by taking his team far in this domestic cup.
BETTING TIP: Leicester v West Ham total goals is 3 @ 16/5 with BetVictor.
Sung-Yueng Ki to Swans hopes at Tigers
South Korea midfielder Ki Sung-Yueng netted home and away for Swansea City against Hull City last season, so Garry Monk is sure to field him in the engine room.
Top anytime odds of 13/2 with Betfred are thus fantastic value, and classy Ki can help the Swans through to the last 16.
BETTING TIP: Ki scores anytime @ 13/2 with Betfred.
Reading’s recent record in Toffees tussles to continue
Berkshire club Reading invested heavily late in the transfer window to transform their attacking options, and already there are signs of it paying off with the Royals occupying a spot in the Championship’s top six.
Capital One Cup opponents Everton have really struggled when recently paired with this opposition, as the Merseyside outfit have lost three of the last five meetings. That makes top odds of 13/5 available at BetVictor for Reading to win in 90 minutes well worth a wager.
BETTING TIP: Reading win in 90 mins @ 13/5 with BetVictor.
