Manchester City, Spurs, Saints in super 7/2 Capital One Cup treble
There’s even more money to be made this midweek on the last 16 of the Capital One Cup. Coral can offer customers superbly enhanced odds of 7/2 on victories in 90 minutes for Manchester City, Tottenham and Southampton.
Manuel Pellegrini’s men meet with lowly Newcastle United, Spurs battle Brighton and Hove Albion, and the Saints are at Stoke City. The Etihad outfit and Tottenham are individual odds-on favourites for wins and Southampton are also a short price, so this really is your best bet to combine them and get this boosted price.
Here are some other respective reasons why punters should back this tantalising treble.
Manchester City v Newcastle
Competition holders City have emerged victorious from all of the last 11 encounters with the Magpies across all competitions. Each of the previous five meetings have been wins to nil for them, so it’s no wonder they are odds-on at 1/7 to qualify for the quarter-finals and 1/3 to do so in 90 minutes.
It’s 6/5 for Pellegrini’s Etihad outfit to beat Newcastle without conceding again. All of City’s usual suspects have scored in recent fixtures with the Tyneside team. That’s why strikers Sergio Aguero (1/2) and Edin Dzeko (8/11) are both odds-on to net anytime, with more attractive value on equal 7/4 chances Samir Nasri, back from a groin injury, and David Silva.
Tottenham v Brighton
Spurs beat the Seagulls in their last meeting in domestic cup competitions back in 2005, recording a 2-1 victory. Brighton have struggled to sustain the promotion push that only ended last season with defeat in the play-offs, and that is why hosts Tottenham are odds-on at 4/9 for a win in normal time. A repeat result, meanwhile, is 15/2.
Mauricio Pochettino’s team are also odds-on at 1/5 to qualify for the quarters. The Argentine coach must be tempted to give England Under-21 scoring sensation Harry Kane a run-out from the start here. When last named in the XI, he hit a hat-trick in the Europa League, with a repeat performance a 16/1 shot. Kane is also safer at 7/2 to net two goals or more.
Stoke v Southampton
It was just this past weekend when the Saints beat the Potters 1-0 at home. Days later Ronald Koeman’s south coast club travel up to the Midlands, with a repeat scoreline a 13/2 chance. A 6/5 price says Southampton will win in 90 minutes and they are odds-on at 4/6 to advance from the tie.
Senegal winger Saido Mane netted the only goal at the weekend, and is 11/2 to score first, or a safer 6/4 to be on target anytime. Graziano Pelle has also been in fine form of late, and the Italian striker is the same price in those markets.
