Carabao Cup Final Tip: Anytime Goalscorer - Jack Grealish
Jack Grealish loves the big stage and he's getting ever better as the season progresses. His Villa side have their work cut out but he is too big a price to find the net at some stage.
The bookies have inevitably made it hard to back Manchester City in any capacity with prohibitive odds everywhere you look. That doesn’t mean I’ll lurch all the way to backing Villa to lift the trophy, but a Villa angle still makes sense. After all, Watford showed us on Saturday night that football remains an unpredictable game!
One piece of value has to be Jack Grealish to score anytime at a best price of 6/1 with PaddyPower. Crying out for a spot in Southgate’s next England squad, the 24-year-old has grabbed 9 goals in 27 appearances in all competitions this season. That makes him 2/1 not 6/1 if we discount opposition quality.
Defence quality shouldn’t triple a player’s price, besides which Grealish has shown he’s a big match player by netting at Old Trafford and against Leicester already this term.
And let’s not talk about City’s defence, deprived of Laporte again, as anything unbreachable anyway.
