Chocks away for the Caravan Club final at Wembley! It’s the competition they all want to win, unless they’d rather not.
Liverpool were having a good go at winning it by accident, until their Birkenhead Beavers XI got that rude awakening at Aston Villa .
Manchester City served up 120 minutes of shut-eye in the Caravan finale last year.
But the form says there’ll be no yawning under the awning today (4.30pm), after City and Villa shared 10 goals in two Prem meetings.
City shared nine amongst themselves. They are 1/25 for the trophy, but with bigger games looming for Pep Guardiola, I’d be wary of that translating into big margins.
Keep stakes fun-size.
Of the stats coinflips, I like bookings – ‘OVER 30.5 points’ (10 yellow, 25 red) at Evens (in 90mins, Paddy).
City’s ‘pens conceded’ numbers in the Prem are well above average – and ‘Villa score a penalty’ is a tasty enough worldie at 14/1 (in 90mins, Bet365).
Jack Grealish's scoring stats are being seriously undervalued by the 13/2 (in 90mins, 888sport, Unibet) 'anytime scorer' – nibble that too.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin can rise to the top of Gareth Southgate’s possibles list with a big show for Everton against Manchester United (2pm).
Everton’s young England wannabe has been busy making his case for a European Championship ticket – he’s scored in six of his 10 games under Carlo Ancelotti and carries the sort of dynamic aerial threat that gets United sweating.
On his data, Calvert-Lewin looks fair ‘anytime’ value today at the standout 2/1 (Bet365).
Wolves ace Raul Jimenez could fill in the blanks at Tottenham (2pm), with two sides running on empty.
After 45 games, and more Europa air miles on Thursday, you wonder how much Wolves have left in their tank. Spurs’ injury crisis has Jose Mourinho driving on fumes.
But Jimenez got to rest in Spain and is a decent fit for this job at 21/10 (Paddy) ‘anytime’ .
Longshot fans want 10/1 (Fred) ‘no goalscorer’.
Bet the DRAW at 11/4 in an El Clasico (8pm) that Barcelona and Real Madrid know they MUST NOT lose.
The sides drew the reverse fixture 0-0, and because head-to-heads count first when splitting sides level on points in La Liga – ahead of overall goal difference – defeat tonight would be like handing your title rival four points not three.
Last week: Winners at 11/4, 13/8 & 19/20
