League Cup Final 2015 tips
Spurs take on Chelsea in the Capital One Cup Final on Sunday and the game is live on SkySports1 from 4pm.
It is no surprise that Chelsea are favourites - the best price you’ll get is 7/10 with Betfred, Paddy Power or Ladbrokes, while Spurs are available at a massive 5/1 and the draw at 16/5 - both with Coral.
But Tottenham have the game to cause Chelsea plenty of problems - don’t forget they beat Chelsea 5-3 on New Year’s Day where Harry Kane caused John Terry and Gary Cahill all sorts of problems and it will be interesting to see how Jose Mourinho handles his threat this time around.
Of course Spurs also beat Chelsea in the 2008 League Cup Final - 2-1 after extra-time.
Spurs centre backs will equally have to be on their mettle, with Diego Costa and Eden Hazard likely to thrive in the wide open spaces at Wembley. Costa, who has scored 18 goals this season in 31 appearances (one against Spurs), can be backed at 6/1 with BetVictor to score the game’s first goal and that is certainly worth taking.
Eden Hazard also looks overpriced at 15/8 with Bet365 to score at any time in the game - he has scored in each of his two league games against Spurs and has 13 goals in 41 games this season.
Kane also looks worth backing each-way at 7/1 to score first with Paddy Power, who offer 1/3 odds for the 'place' in this market - if your player scores any of the first five goals - he has scored 13 goals in his last 15 games.
Six of the last seven games between these sides have seen three goals or more and we also recommend backing 'Over 2.5 Goals' at best odds of 10/11 with Sky Bet.
On the same basis, it may be worth backing a couple of high scoring Correct Scores with Betfred, who refund losing Correct Score bets on all televised games that finish 1-1 - they offer odds of 8/1 on a 2-1 Chelsea win and 14/1 on a 3-1 Chelsea win.
