Otherwise known as the Papa John's Trophy, the former Checkatrade Trophy competition, returns on Tuesday evening with a very interesting bunch of games. For the third season in a row, the group stages of the competition contains 16 invited category one academies, which this year includes Arsenal for the first time. It’s certainly interesting to see some of the Premier League’s top-rated youngsters going up against clubs from Leagues One and Two, and it adds a new dimension to the competition.

We’ve picked out several decent bets for the night, including decent-looking ‘banker’ home teams, and academy sides at long odds.

EFL Trophy Betting Tips   

The EFL Trophy (or Papa John's trophy) is one of the hardest football competition to predict. Anyway, our betting expert tipsters are enjoying a good profit this term and we strongly suggest to copy their Papa John's Trophy betting tips.

The first section of this page contains the recommended bets. We suggest to bet on singles and stake 1 unit on each betting tip.

The second section contains our recommended EFL Trophy accumulator and a simulation with a £10 bet on one of our trusted bookmakers.

How to read our predictions?
  • "1" means "Home Team to win"
  • "2" means "Away Team to win"
  • "X" means "Draw"
  • "1X" means "Home Team to win or Draw Double Chance"
  • "X2" means "Away Team to win or Draw Double Chance"

We rarely predict "12" (Home Team to win or Away Team to win).

Papa John's Trophy Format & Rules  

The Papa John's Trophy, formerly known as the Checkatrade Trophy, is a knockout competition for clubs playing in League One and League Two, plus Academy teams from Premier League Category One clubs.

The 64 teams are split into 16 regional groups of four teams, of which the top two will progress to the knockout stages, with the final staged at Wembley Stadium. Six of the starting 11 for the Category One academy sides must be Under-21.

Teams will be awarded 3 points for a win and one 1 for a draw, but if a match ends in a draw after 90 minutes, a penalty shootout will be played for 1 extra point.

The current (2020–21) champions are Sunderland, who beat Tranmere Rovers 1–0 in the 2021 final, which was played just one day after Salford City won the previous season's final, which had been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The EFL Trophy on TV is exclusively live on Sky Sports in the UK during the 2021/22 season with regular coverage of some rounds including the EFL Trophy Final.
