In their quest for EFL Cup progression, Swansea City hosts Premier League side Bournemouth. Delving into the teams’ form and history, it’s clear that Bournemouth, despite their Premier League struggles, holds an edge. Notably, Swansea haven’t beaten Bournemouth since 2007 and their current 20th position in the Championship with just two points doesn’t inspire confidence.

On the flip side, Bournemouth’s striker, Dominic Solanke, is in a rich vein of form, boasting a stellar 6.97 Expert Rating from BettingTips4You and has already found the net this season. Considering both teams’ recent form and head-to-head stats, the best bet seems to be Bournemouth to win with both teams scoring.

Best bet – Bournemouth To Win & Both Teams To Score vs Swansea

In the upcoming EFL Cup clash, Plymouth Argyle will host Premier League’s Crystal Palace at Home Park. Plymouth, despite starting the season with a win, have recently shown inconsistent form, being winless in their last three games. Contrastingly, under Roy Hodgson, Crystal Palace have begun their top-flight campaign on a brighter note, demonstrating their Premier League strength with a resilient draw against Brentford.

Historically, Palace have the edge, as Plymouth hasn’t tasted victory against them since 2008. While both teams have injury concerns, key players like Ryan Hardie for Plymouth and Joachim Andersen for Crystal Palace could dictate the outcome. Taking these factors into account, an handicap draw seems plausible, but giving Crystal Palace a one-goal handicap seems a wise bet, potentially setting them up for a tight win.

Best bet – Handicap Tie: Plymouth (+1) vs Crystal Palace

Despite a recent 3-0 setback against Colchester, Gillingham’s overall performance in League Two remains commendable, clinching four wins in their first five games. As they prepare to face Premier League side Luton in the EFL Cup’s second round, the odds might be more in their favour than one would assume.

Luton’s debut in the Premier League hasn’t been smooth, suffering significant defeats against Brighton and Chelsea. With the Premier League survival being their primary goal, the EFL Cup may be of lesser importance to them, possibly affecting their morale and focus. Given Luton’s current state and Gillingham’s impressive form, a Gillingham win or draw seems like a smart wager for this Kenilworth Road’s clash.

Best bet – Gillingham double chance (win or draw) vs Luton

Leicester City, under the leadership of Enzo Maresca, have undeniably set a high bar in the Championship this season, boasting a flawless record with four wins from four matches. Despite losing key players during the summer, the Foxes appear to have the upper hand against Tranmere Rovers.

However, it’s worth noting that Tranmere, even though they’ve only celebrated one victory this season, have demonstrated their attacking prowess, managing to score 10 goals in six fixtures. Given their consistent scoring record at home, only failing to score in two matches since February, it seems probable both teams will find the back of the net. Given the circumstances, a Leicester win with both teams scoring presents itself as a promising bet for this round.

Best bet – Leicester To Win & Both Teams To Score vs Tranmere Rovers

The upcoming EFL Cup showdown between Salford and Leeds at the Peninsula Stadium promises to be a goal-fest. Leeds, recently displaying their scoring prowess with a stunning four-goal performance against Ipswich, demonstrate a revitalised attack that shouldn’t be underestimated. Salford, despite their mixed results, have shown they can be a threat, with notable games like their 2-2 draw against Preston followed by a penalty shootout win.

Adding to this, Leeds’ recent 7-goal thriller and Salford’s consistent ability to find the net suggests an encounter abundant with goals. Historical data, combined with the evident offensive strengths of both teams, makes a prediction of Over 3.5 Goals seem particularly enticing for those looking for a bet with potential value. Both teams have showcased their attacking capabilities, and given the stage and the stakes, an explosive match seems to be on the cards.

Best bet – Over 3.5 Goals in Salford vs Leeds

When looking at the upcoming EFL Cup clash between Fulham and Tottenham Hotspur at Craven Cottage, all indications suggest Tottenham are the favourable side. Spurs have been on an upswing, beginning their season confidently under Ange Postecoglou and showcasing intent with back-to-back league victories. Their track record at Craven Cottage is impeccable, with no losses since January 2011. In contrast, Fulham have shown inconsistency early on, with a troubling record in recent EFL Cup home fixtures.

Furthermore, Tottenham’s depth means even with injuries, they can field a strong XI. Spurs’ attacking might, bolstered by players like James Maddison, combined with their fortified defence, makes them the more potent side. Considering all these factors, betting on Tottenham to triumph in this match seems the most astute choice.

Best bet – Tottenham To Win vs Luton
