How to Bet Carabao Cup Final
Manchester City is favored to win the Carabao Cup at 10/11 in most sportsbooks.
Chelsea is offered around 3/1 or 5/2.
Expect both teams to use their best line-ups. Chelsea did not participate in the Champions League this season, nor will they win their domestic league (they’re +21000 odds to win the 2018-19 Premier League right now), and any trophy will help salvage an inconsistent and frustrating first season under Maurizio Sarri.
Manchester City’s second XI is better than 90% of the world’s first, so it’s almost irrelevant who takes the pitch. It’ll be a formidable side. While their focus is still (in order) on the Champions League and Premier League, a trophy against Chelsea could provide good momentum for the rest of the season.
City is the favorite for good reason, and barring some key injuries, should win the Carabao Cup.
