Stoke, Crystal Palace, Newcastle, Swansea in Capital One Cup Banker

The Capital One Cup returns, and this time some Premier League clubs enter round two. So, in light of this, Coral have a terrific acca on offer for loyal customers to take with Stoke City, Crystal Palace, Newcastle United and Swansea City involved in a brilliant Banker bet.

Enhanced odds of 4/1 say that those quartet of top-flight sides can all win in 90 minutes against lesser opposition, as the Potters travel to Luton Town, the Eagles host Shrewsbury Town, the Magpies welcome Northampton Town and the Swans entertain York City.

All four teams featured in this offer are odds-on favourites in their respective matches, and face sides that are at least two divisions below. If you are still not convinced, then here are even more reasons to back this brilliant bet…

Luton v Stoke
This duo have not met since they were both in the Championship in 2006/07, but the Potters are undefeated against the Hatters in their last five matches. Now three divisions above them, they are odds-on 4/6 favourites for victory in 90 mins.

The likes of Xherdan Shaqiri (9/5 to net anytime), Ibrahim Afellay (13/5) and Peter Crouch (6/4) could all be on show at Luton’s Kenilworth Road ground.

Crystal Palace v Shrewsbury
Palace have continued their great 10th-place finish in the Premier League last term, by winning two of their opening three games this season to put them up into fourth place after the weekend.

League One outfit the Shrews, meanwhile, are yet to record a win in their division, losing and drawing twice, which is why the hosts are such firm favourites at 2/5.

Newcastle v Northampton
The last time these two teams met, it was in the Fa Cup in 1987, when the Magpies saw off Northampton 2-1. Being three leagues apart, the deficit should be far more and Newcastle are huge home favourites at 4/11 in normal time again.

After recently holding Manchester United at Old Trafford to a draw, expect them to smash the Cobblers at St James’ Park, with the likes of Aleksandar Mitrovic (21/20 in the anytime market) and Papiss Cisse (11/10) on their books.

Swansea v York
With just one win from their first four League Two matches this term, the Minstermen are highly unfancied against the high-flying Swans under Garry Monk.

Swansea are the overwhelming favourites to see off York at 3/10, after getting points off the likes of champions Chelsea and Newcastle this season in the league.
