Bradford vs Liverpool Academy Betting Tips - Over 3.5 Goals

Bradford come into this cup matchup in good form having won each of their last three matches and will be confident of taking care of a Liverpool Academy side winless in their last five matches. 

However, a home win offers little value in this fixture, so we instead look at the goal markets and another high-scoring EFL Trophy contest should be on the cards on Tuesday with both teams posting strong numbers this season.

Hosts Bradford come into this cup clash having seen over 2.5 goals scored in eight of their last nine matches over the past six weeks. Six of those eight games also saw BTTS. In home games, four of Bradford´s last five also saw at least three goals scored.

Visiting Liverpool U21 have seen over 2.5 goals scored in nine of their last 11 matches since the end of August. Six of their last seven matches also saw both teams scoring. 

Cup contests like these tend to be high-scoring and I am confident we should see at least three goals scored on Tuesday. As such, I´m taking over 2.5 goals while I wouldn't be shocked to see at least four, and potentially more scored in a high-scoring affair.
