Capital One Cup Odds

Capital One Cup Odds

Liverpool are the competition's most successful side with eight wins, three ahead of second-placed Aston Villa

Having come under a number of different guises over the years due to sponsors ranging from Milk to Coca-Cola, the League Cup, currently known as the Capital One Cup, also boasts a varied range of winners.

No fewer than 22 teams have lifted the trophy since Aston Villa became the inaugural winners of the competition back in 1960, with Liverpool the most successful side in tournament history with eight wins to their name, and they are also the current holders of the cup.

Think underdogs when checking Capital One Cup odds

A number of unfancied sides have gone on to enjoy Capital One Cup success in years gone by, with the competition often giving teams the chance to perform with more freedom away from the rigours of league football.

The most recent example is 2011 champions Birmingham City, who despite besting Arsenal 2-1 in the final at Wembley, struggled all season in league competition, and went on to suffer relegation to the Championship.

Meanwhile, Sheffield Wednesday perhaps provide the finest example of a true underdog winner, overcoming Manchester United to claim League Cup glory back in 1991, despite being a second division side.

However, the 2013 Capital One Cup has really been all about the progress of one club, on the cusp of the biggest shock in the history of the competition.

League Two club have already overcome three Premier League clubs just to reach the final in Wigan, Arsenal and Aston Villa and now only Swansea stand in their way of cup glory.

Understandably, Bradford are the heavy underdogs to pull off one more giant-killing at Wembley, as they are 13/2 to beat Swansea in the 90 minutes and 7/2 to lift the trophy.

Punters fancying everything to go as it should can get Swansea at 2/5 to win in normal time and 1/6 to win their biggest ever trophy.
