Back Chelsea to deepen gloom on Arsenal, Bristol City to score

Back Chelsea to deepen gloom on Arsenal, Bristol City to score
From ESPN - January 8, 2018

Liverpool's 2-1 win over Everton and Coventry City's FA Cup win over Stoke City ensured it was another profitable weekend for the column. The Carabao Cup reaches the semifinal stage this week and we have all the best betting angles covered.

Running total: -72.87

The Home Banker

Lee Johnson's Bristol City are huge underdogs as they travel to the Etihad to meet Manchester City in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semifinal on Tuesday. His side famously beat Manchester United 2-1 at Ashton Gate to secure their semifinal berth and they have also accounted for Watford, Stoke and Crystal Palace in this season's competition. And while winning in Manchester may be beyond them -- they are priced up at 25/1 to spring a shock -- they certainly have enough quality to get on the scoresheet against Pep Guardiola's men. It's 11/10 that both teams find the net and that looks a fair price given that both teams like to get forward in numbers.

Selection: 5 on both teams to score at 11/10 with bet365.

The Tasty Treble

Chelsea and Arsenal played out a breathless 2-2 draw in the Premier League just last week and the pair lock horns again on Wednesday in the Carabao Cup at Stamford Bridge. The Blues were excellent at the Emirates and it took an injury time equaliser from Hector Bellerin to deny them all three points. On Wednesday they can make home advantage count and look a decent price at 17/20. In the Copa del Rey Valencia (2/5) should be too good for Las Palmas while Espanyol (7/4) could be worth siding with to win at Levante. The latter won 2-1 when the pair met in the first leg of their round of 16 clash last Thursday but Espanyol had plenty of chances and will be confident of turning the tie around. The treble is paying better than 6/1 with bet365.

Selection: 1 on the treble at 6.12/1 with bet365.
