Betting TIP Of The Day: Everton v Leyton OrientCarling Cup Betting Tips, Football Betting Tips, VIP Gambler of the Day
Are you looking at this League Cup tie and pondering an upset, trying to persuade yourself that there’s value to be found in Leyton Orient’s 14/1 odds? Well, stop – it’s not going to happen.
This will be the third consecutive year Everton have hosted League One opposition in the second round of the League Cup and – as Huddersfield and Sheffield United can both testify – Goodison Park holds no shelter for would be giant killers.
In 2010 David Moyes’ team saw off Huddersfield 5-1, with an ease that defied all 5,000 travelling supporters. It should have been six, but Johnny Heitinga’s penalty taking skills are questionable at best.
Last year Everton knocked out Sheffield United 3-1. The Toffees, comprised of a youthful eleven, coming from a goal behind to book their place in the third round with energy to spare.
Both the Blades and Huddersfield were promotion candidates when they travelled to L4, both missing out by the narrowest of margins, whereas Orient are a mid-table third tier club.
If that wasn’t enough persuasion to keep your money away from the O’s, Moyes has named a full-strength squad for tonight’s match, unchanged from the one which ravaged Aston Villa on the weekend.
New signing Kevin Miralles (pictured) has been confirmed as a home debutant and is a good bet at 4/1 with bet365 to open the scoring, while the -2 handicap also looks value at 11/10 with the same bookies.
If you are really desperate to lump some money on the Londoners then Russell Slade’s team to score first at 4/1 is probably the best of a bad bunch.
