Robins to soar above Eagles


It is all about the EFL Cup this midweek and the pick of Tuesday’s fixtures for value hunters could be the clash between Bristol City and Crystal Palace.

These two may not be the most glamorous of the sides in action but their contrasting fortunes to date means there is value to be had.

The Robins got thumped 3-0 by Leeds at the weekend but have already beaten Stoke and Watford in this competition. Despite being likely to make changes, the Eagles’ desperation to stay in the Premier League means their starting XI at Ashton Gate will be almost unrecognisable.

Therefore look no further than the brilliant 8/5 on offer for City to add a third top-flight scalp to their haul.

Speaking of Leeds and they travel to Leicester in a game they would fancy winning if it was not for their ridiculously busy schedule.

The Whites were on fire at the weekend and look almost too good to turn down at 5/1. Unfortunately it is the TV companies that appear to run football and, with Leeds super popular when it comes to viewing figures, Friday’s game against Sheffield United means they may already be looking ahead.

Leicester interim boss Michael Appleton will also be keen to add to his chances of getting the job permanently so it may instead be worth lumping on a home win at 10/21.

Bournemouth should also get the job done against Middlesbrough at 5/7 while Manchester United and Arsenal will not expect to be troubled by Swansea and Norwich.

Finally the top teams in the Premier League and the Championship meet at the Etihad as Manchester City host Wolves. It will be a competitive match but City should win, with both scoring at 21/20 appearing sensible.
