THERE'S been a lot chat on the site recently about Skybet's RequestABet feature that allows you to bet on multiple events on a single match so we thought we'd take a look at some of the best on offer for this afternoon's EFL Cup Final between Manchester United and Sunderland.
RequestABets usually consist of two, three or even more events that could happen in any given game such as a player to score + the number of corners + the number of goals, giving you a combined single bet. You can contact Skybet to request your own, hence the name, or you can choose one from the list available on their site.
Skybet usually group their RequestABets based on their odds so you can easily find a short-priced bet or a bumper bet, some as big as 500-1. So let's take a look at few bets that could represent value today.
RequestABets up to 10-1
The first bet to catch the eye is ‘a goal in each half and 4+ corners in each half‘ at 5-2 at Skybet. This may not be the highest-scoring final but a goal in each half isn't our of the question. The corner count feels achievable too, with Man Utd averaging over 6 corners per match and Southampton over 5.
Next in this range is ‘Ibrahimovic to score, Man Utd to win, 11+ match corners and Under 50 match booking points‘ at 7-1 at Skybet. If United are to win then Ibra looks the most likely to grab the goals that'll take the trophy to Old Trafford. It's then a case of how many corners and bookings there'll be. 11+ corners is a bit of a tall order but on three occasions already this season United have beaten the tally of 11 corners on their own.
RequestABets up to 28-1
Staying on the Zlatan thread why not look at ‘Mata and Ibrahimovic to score, Man Utd to win and Bailly to be carded‘ at 33-1 at Skybet. Mata has popped up with some important goals this season and is second top scorer behind Ibra on six. Bailly meanwhile has been carded three times in 13 league matches and was sent of against St Etienne in midweek.
You can also have 22-1 at Skybet on ‘Man Utd to win, Under 2.5 Goals, 11+ corners and Yoshida to be carded‘. Yoshida has picked up a couple of bookings in 10 league games this season but is not in the same ball park as the likes of Pogba (7) or Fellaini (6) which is reflected in the odds.
RequestABets 33-1 and above
The aforementioned Pogba features in one RequestABet that looks great value at 40-1 at Skybet. You can have ‘Man Utd to win, Under 2.5 goals, 8+ Man Utd corners and Pogba to be carded‘. All the stats point to this bet and 40s looks a great price for a small stake.
Finally, let's look at a major long shot: ‘Gabbiadini and Ibrahimovic to score, 6+ corners each team and Bailly to be carded‘. Gabbiadini has netted three times already since arriving at St Mary's in January and will be the Saints' biggest goal threat. This one is worth a quid at 125-1 at Skybet.
- Man Utd to win, Under 2.5 Goals, 11+ corners and Yoshida to be carded 22-1
- Man Utd to win, Under 2.5 goals, 8+ Man Utd corners and Pogba to be carded 40-1
