Bookies backing Liverpool rout at Wembley
So Liverpool is the team that you should be wagering the contents of your piggy bank on for the Carling Cup, after they booked a date with Cardiff thanks to a 2-2 draw with Man City.

You’ll get no better than 1/4 with Coral on Liverpool lifting the Carling Cup on February 26, with Championship side Cardiff back-able at 9/2 with Bet365.
Craig Bellamy’s strike ultimately took the Reds back to Wembley for the first time since 1996 and William Hill make Kenny Dalglish’s men 2/5 to win the final in 90 minutes. A price of 13/2 can be had on Cardiff winning the final within the 90.
Hills have already started taking bets on how many goals Liverpool score on the day and make one the 15/8 favourite, although they are 5/2 to score three or more while Cardiff are 4/6 to score no goals.
“Whoever won between Liverpool and Manchester City were always going to be favourites to lift the Cup and we think the cup engraver may as well start practicing writing Liverpool now,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.
From a City perspective, it was however a good night for one punter, who Nigel De Jong was backed at 140 on Betfair for the first goal.
