Sam Barnard | 29 November 2016
Coral’s bet of the day
- Wood in fine scoring form to help Leeds up to fifth place in league
- New Zealander has scored three in the EFL Cup this season
- The 24-year-old has 12 goals in league and cup this term
- Leeds have a habit of upping their game in bigger matches
Chris Wood enhanced odds of 4/1 to score in 90 mins
In-form sleeping giants Leeds United travel to Premier League outfit Liverpool on Tuesday evening in the EFL Cup quarter-finals, in what is arguably the clash of the round despite the two teams being in different divisions.
It is from this match too that Coral have picked out their latest bet of the day, with Chris Wood enhanced odds of 4/1 (from 5/2 in the normal market) available on the striker to score in 90 minutes – maximum stake of £20.
Read on to find out why you shouldn’t miss out on this hand-picked price…
Former West Bromwich Albion and Leicester City frontman Wood has been in fine form this season, notching 12 times across all competitions so far.
Three of those have come in the EFL Cup, in each game he’s featured in against Fleetwood Town, Blackburn Rovers and Norwich City, including in the last two rounds.
Wood has scored in every EFL Cup match he’s played in this term
New Zealander Wood’s other nine strikes in the league have helped the Whites up to an impressive fifth place after 18 matches, so both the player and club are in high confidence.
Due to their history, Leeds are one of the most passionate clubs in the country, and sold out Elland Road in their recent Championship clash with Newcastle United.
As a result, the crowd and memories tend to help lift the team in the bigger games, even though they are still in the second tier.
One example is when they battled biter rivals Manchester United in the FA Cup in 2010, and they won thanks to a first-half Jermaine Beckford strike, despite being at Old Trafford.
So, what are you waiting for punters? Back the Whites to impress on the road again against higher opposition, with Chris Wood enhanced odds of 4/1.
