The EFL Cup is now at the business end as we look forward to the semi-finals.

The EFL Cup has been a bit of a wild ride this season with some big names exiting very early on. Not having European football, Tottenham were the first ‘Big Six’ side to fall, having been beaten on penalties by Fulham in the second round.

Manchester City’s quest for the quadruple, and to reclaim their EFL Cup crown, was ended in the third round by Newcastle United. Also falling were Aston Villa, Brentford, Crystal Palace and Brighton, all of whom lost to fellow Premier League sides.

Newcastle then knocked out Manchester United in the fourth round, getting revenge on the Red Devils for beating them in the EFL Cup final last season. Arsenal joined the Red Devils in exiting the competition, beaten by West Ham, with Burnley and Bournemouth the other Premier League sides to exit.

The quarter-finals stage saw Newcastle, Port Vale, Everton and West Ham all crash out to set up the semi-final line-up of:

  • Middlesbrough vs Chelsea
  • Liverpool vs Fulham

Who will win the Carabao Cup?

With Man City and Man Utd out of the competition, Liverpool are now the favourites to lift the trophy in 2023/24, just ahead of Chelsea.

It may be strange to see Chelsea so high up on the list of favourites, especially considering their quarter-final opponents. There isn’t too much difference, though, between Chelsea and Newcastle when it comes to odds, and the Magpies will probably fancy their chances given the recent match between the two.

There is a big gap in odds then to the next bunch, with Everton and West Ham equally fancied, though the latter have to beat Liverpool. Fulham and Middlesbrough aren’t too far apart either, while Port Vale are the rank outsiders, representing League One.

When do you release your Carabao Cup predictions?

We aim to give our readers plenty of time to check our betting tips for upcoming Carabao Cup matches and, as such, we look to get these tips live between 24 and 48 hours before kick-off. However, that time frame can fluctuate on occasion due to fixture congestion. You’ll find our best tips for the Carabao Cup on this page during every round, and for the biggest matches we’ll even have specially-picked match previews, written by our Squawka Bet experts who have extensive knowledge of teams across the four divisions.

Be sure to check the form to make sure you agree with our selections and you may even decide to wait until team news has been announced before confirming your betslip.

Carabao Cup In-play betting tips

Due to the unpredictable nature of cup football, punters can often find joy when making in-play bets on the Carabao Cup.

This particular method of wagering allows you to tailor your bets to the unfolding action, regardless of whether it’s two League One clubs going at it or a Premier League giant taking on a lower-league minnow.

Full-Time Results

In the Carabao Cup, any team can beat another — just look at Bradford City dumping out the likes of Arsenal and Aston Villa en route to their 2013 final appearance.

However, this means there is often great value to be found in the Full-Time Results markets, also known as win-draw-win bets.

With each round of matches usually taking place over a midweek with all games within two to three days of each other, this market also offers punters the chance to combine several match result bets for a longer-odds accumulator.

But be careful as full-time result markets only include the 90-minute match, not penalties (or for the final, extra-time).

Both Teams to Score

It couldn’t be more simple – you’re backing both teams to get on the scoresheet during the match. It’s worth checking how often the teams facing off tend to score – and concede – before placing this bet and much like the match result market, it’s a very popular market to consider for an accumulator bet. Again, these markets are usually for 90 minutes only.

To Score a Header

There are now options with many bookmakers to select goal methods for teams or even individual players. Headers still have their place in the game, especially as lower league clubs seek to exploit set-piece situations.

Player Total Shots

You are now even able to bet on the number of shots a player takes in a game and this type of bet is popular with our stats-loving Squawka experts.

Player Total Tackles

The total tackles market allows you to delve into the stats and choose a player to make a certain amount of tackles during a 90 minute match. Again, these bets can be popular in clashes between Premier League sides and lower league clubs as the underdogs may look to unsettle their opponents by winning as many tackles as possible early on. Sky Bet are a particularly good bookmaker for this market.

Bookings

The bookings markets have really expanded in recent years too. It used to be that you could back an Over or Under line in terms of bookings in a game but there’s now plenty more depth to these markets too. Not only can you back the amount of cards each team picks up, which team will earn more bookings and whether there will be a red card shown but you can now even back individual players to pick up a card – or be the first player to go into the book during the match.

Player Offsides

There are also prices available on players to be caught offside a certain amount of times during the game – another perfect market if you have the right stats on hand, as we always do.

Corners Taken

It’s a similar story with corners bets too. Not only can you back a team to win more corners than their opponents, you can back how many corners will be taken in the game, how many corners each individual team will take and even back a corners handicap bet if you fancy one team to win several more corners than their opponents.

Price boosts

Some bookmakers such as Bet365 do offer boosted prices on Carabao Cup games and we’ll bring you all the latest enhanced new customer offers

Carabao Cup Accumulators

Given the research and knowledge that backs up our Carabao Cup Tips, you can now feel confident in placing an accumulator. This is a bet that combines your selections from several different matches for even better value. You can choose different markets on different matches should you wish, but most punters decide to stick to the same markets, perhaps backing 10 different teams from five games to find the net in a Carabao Cup BTTS accumulator.

Best bookmakers for the Carabao Cup

So many bookmakers offer a huge depth of markets and leagues now, but every major bookmaker will offer odds on the Carabao Cup, from the early stages right through to the final. We’ve scoured them all and selected the following five as our favourites, due to a combination of excellent new customer offers, competitive odds and the strength of their app and customer service.

Which other competitions do you offer tips for? Of course, it’s not just the Carabao Cup we cover in such detail at Squawka Bet. We aim to cover all the major leagues across Europe and the UK in particular, as well as key UEFA competitions and international football. Find the latest tips for each of these competitions below.

Carabao Cup offers & free bets

When it gets to the latter stages of the Carabao Cup, you’re always likely to find enticing new customer offers, with huge enhancements afforded to punters looking to back a favourite against an underdog. If none of those take your fancy however, or if you’re already a customer with the offering bookmaker, then there are plenty of other ways to pick up price boosts, with many firms offering boosted odds ahead of every fixture in this competition. There is of course always the opportunity to take advantage of a bookmakers’ generic new customer offer too – which can allow you to start your Carabao Cup betting journey with some free bets.
