Carabao Cup Betting: Arsenal Head Quarter-Final Best Bets

Carabao Cup Betting: Arsenal Head Quarter-Final Best Bets

We’re down to the last eight in the 2018/19 Carabao Cup and four of the Premier League’s top six are still involved. Manchester United and Liverpool will have to watch on as their rivals do battle for major honours…

With two matches taking place on Tuesday and Wednesday, punters will be keeping a close eye on all four results. We could see three of the Premier League’s top four advance to the semi-finals.

That’s enough chitchat for now, let’s get down to the betting. 888sport EFL Cup betting odds show this four-fold at a staggering 20/1 – offering punters a nice return before Christmas. Here are my top Carabao Cup tips ahead of this week’s action…

Leicester City vs MANCHESTER CITY

Leicester have gone three games without a win and the Foxes will be wary of a good hiding here. The Foxes conceded five in their last meeting against Manchester City…

Claude Puel’s men always seem to score in this fixture though and that brings the 13/20 for over 0.5 Leicester goals is a solid bet. We could see the hosts go with a strong line-up on Tuesday night.

Pep Guardiola has opted for a weakened side for previous Carabao Cup fixtures but City’s second string is still good enough to beat most Premier League clubs.

The visitors will be confident of scoring at will against this Leicester outfit. The 19/10 for a City win with goals at both ends could be the way to go.

TIP: Man City to win and both teams to score @ 19/10

PREDICTED SCORE: Leicester 1-3 Man City (Priced at 19/2 with 888sport)

MIDDLESBROUGH vs Burton Albion

Middlesbrough have gone through a blip in recent weeks but Tony Pulis’ side will fancy their chances of advancing to the Carabao Cup semi-finals on Tuesday evening.

Their form at the Riverside Stadium in recent years has been solid – punters will expect Boro to put on a show. Winning is the top priority and 1/2 for over 1.5 home goals is a safe shout.

Burton Albion are languishing down in 15th in League One but the Brewers will be quietly confident of upsetting the odds at the Riverside Stadium.

Punters fancying an upset can back the visitors to score 0.5 goals at 10/13. Championship fans will be keeping a close eye on the outcome of this clash.

TIP: Over 1.5 Boro goals @ 1/2

PREDICTED SCORE: Middlesbrough 2-1 Burton Albion (Priced at 15/2 with 888sport)

ARSENAL vs Tottenham Hotspur

Arsenal put four goals past Tottenham in the first north London derby of the season less than three weeks ago and the Gunners are well placed to snag another victory here.

Unai Emery’s men fell short at Southampton on Sunday but Arsenal could bounce back at the first time of asking. 29/20 for a home win represents solid value in the betting.

Meanwhile, Tottenham needed an injury-time winner to edge past Burnley on Saturday – Mauricio Pochettino’s men squandered a host of chances in that affair.

The visitors could go all out for the win here; a positive approach should help the game as a spectacle. For those interested, Spurs are 57/50 to go through by any method…

TIP: Arsenal to win @ 29/20

PREDICTED SCORE: Arsenal 2-1 Spurs (Priced at 8/1 with 888sport)


Fresh from their hard-fought win at Brighton on Sunday, Chelsea will be raring to go ahead of yet another League Cup semi-final. Watch this space, we could see a strong Blues starting line-up.

There isn’t much value in backing Chelsea to win but the Blues are a decent price at 13/20 to take a lead into half-time. Maurizio Sarri’s men usually start quickly on home soil.

Meanwhile, Eddie Howe will have his Bournemouth outfit geared up for a home effort on Wednesday evening. The Cherries have lost their last two without scoring a goal…

Despite their struggles, I fancy Bournemouth to score at Stamford Bridge and the 19/20 for both teams to score is a solid bet. It could be an entertaining contest in west London.

TIP: Both teams to score @ 19/20

PREDICTED SCORE: Chelsea 2-1 Bournemouth (Priced at 15/2 with 888sport)
