It's an all London affair at Wembley this Sunday and we have some free League Cup final betting tips.
Chelsea v Tottenham Predictions
Chelsea head into the League Cup final glad for the distraction it provides as the club has found itself engulfed by controversy. Firstly, by the Paris metro racism incident. Secondly, and less seriously, by the Matic-Barnes sending off/non-sending off.
Tottenham meanwhile don't head into this game in the best of form. A Harry Kane inspired comeback allowed them to snatch a last second draw at home against West Ham and then mid-week Pochettino's men were dumped out of the Europa League by Fiorentina.
The odds for this one then are about what you would expect. Chelsea come in as favourites at 4/6 with bet365. The draw is available at 3/1 with Coral and the Tottenham win is available at 9/2 with the same provider.
Instantly, looking at those odds it is apparent that there isn't much value in backing Chelsea. The problem is though that it is hard to see a Mourinho side losing in a cup final to Tottenham. Jose's narrative that there is a conspiracy against Chelsea may be laughable but it very deliberately allows him to create an us versus the world mentality in the Blues dressing room.
Additionally, Spurs midweek trip to Italy will have taken something out of them. Eriksen and Lamela both played 90 minutes and even Harry Kane made the trip and played for the final half hour. Spurs basically, put out a full strength side on Thursday and whilst that was necessary and understandable it will cost them. Despite, the tempting odds then it just doesn't seem sensible to back Tottenham.
Instead of betting on the outrights I'm tipping Chelsea to win and both teams to score available at 5/2 with Bet365. With the suspension of Matic Chelsea's defence isn't going to be as solid as it ordinarily is. Pochettino's high pressing game will try to take advantage of this and given the form of Kane and Eriksen I don't see Chelsea keeping a cleansheet.
If that doesn't tempt you though my second Chelsea v Tottenham prediction is the reverse wincast. Harry Kane to score anytime and Chelsea to win is available at 7/1 with William Hill. Kane is in great form at the moment and he seems to relish the big occasions so at odds of 7/1 betting on the youngster to score in a defeat is worth a punt.
Lastly, we should remember that this is a final. By their very nature then these games tend to be tight affair where one goal is enough for the win. In the first 45 minutes teams tend to focus on making sure that they don't concede. The half-time score to be 0-0 is available at 9/4 with bet365.
