Looking every inch the Premier League champions in waiting after a blistering start to the season, Manchester City are also favourites in the EFL Cup.
With Wolverhampton Wanderers of the Championship awaiting his side in the last 16, Pep Guardiola is available at 3/1 (4.00) with dabblebet to claim his first silverware in English football by bringing this trophy back to the Etihad Stadium for a third time in five seasons.
However, neighbours Manchester United came out on top in last season’s competition, and are close 4/1 (5.00) second favourites to retain the cup as they prepare to take on Swansea City in the next round.
Considering their deep squads and managers’ habit of putting out strong line-ups, the Manchester clubs certainly seem the most likely winners this season, with the Citizens’ current form making them worthy front-runners.
Drawn at home to a struggling Everton - who can be backed at 22/1 (23.00) - Chelsea are on offer at 9/2 (5.50) to become the second most successful team in this competition’s history behind Liverpool by winning it for a sixth time.
In contrast, Arsenal have not won this tournament since their second triumph back in 1992, but are priced at 13/2 (7.50) to finally end their wait this time out.
Looking more and more impressive with every match, Tottenham Hotspur are sure to attract plenty of attention at generous 17/2 (9.50) odds, although a potentially tricky tie against bogey side West Ham - outsiders at 33/1 (34.00) - could be cause for concern.
Having seen off Liverpool in the last round, Leicester City can be backed at 16/1 (17.00) to upset the odds once again by going all the way in this competition - adding to their reputation as the ultimate dark horses.
With a serious fight against relegation on their hands, Crystal Palace are available at 25/1 (26.00) to give themselves something to cheer about with a first ever cup win.
