Match Betting (1x2)

The most evenly-matched EFL Cup quarter final clash looks to be the match between Everton and Leicester City, with the Toffees still without a permanent manager following the decision to part company with manager Marco Silva.

Duncan Ferguson has willingly stepped into the fray as caretaker manager and looks increasingly likely to take charge of the team for this clash, with the Scot restoring pride and passion among the ranks.

Ladbrokes offer 17/10 about a victory for Everton which would put them within three games of winning some much-needed silverware, while a win would also strengthen the case for Ferguson to get the job on a permanent basis.

We can be sure that the home side will have a strong team out for the clash at Goodison Park, although Leicester might be prone to a little more rotation considering how well they are faring in the Premier League right now.

The Foxes sit second in the table and can actually be considered as title challengers, especially if Liverpool slip up at the top.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are 7/4 with Unibet to win on Merseyside and much depends on whether the Northern Irishman goes with a first team or decides to give the likes of Jamie Vardy and James Maddison a night off.

However, some of the Leicester fringe players such as Harvey Barnes and Demarai Gray are capable of making a big impression.

It wouldn’t surprise anyone if the game ends all square and the draw is a 13/5 chance which would see the game go to penalties.

Asian Handicap

Leicester City have only lost two games all season. They were narrowly beaten 1-0 at Old Trafford before a similar story at Anfield when the Foxes were defeated 2-1.

Such an impressive record means that some punters will go with the visitors on the Asian Handicap off scratch, with BetVictor going 11/12 about Leicester and that means money back if the game ends all square.

It’s clear that Rodgers would love to land silverware during his first full season in charge at the Midlands club and he must also know that the prospect of catching Liverpool in the Premier League is an unlikely one.

On the flip side, you can get with Everton +0.5 at 8/15 should you want to get with the home team and they will certainly be boosted by a passionate home crowd.

Both Teams to Score

It’s very rare that we see Leicester fail to score during ninety minutes of football and the bookmakers are expecting both sides to find the net during this encounter.

William Hill have 4/6 about the “Yes” option on the Both Teams to Score market, with Everton having to play positive football in front of their own supporters and goals do look likely.

BetVictor have 13/10 about the “No” option and Leicester’s defence has been superb this season although changes to the visitors’ team could see the “Yes” option cop.
