You may be wondering how the EFL Trophy standings table works for a cup competition. It’s simple. During the group stage, standings are divided by group; whereas during the knockouts, teams are placed in a single list and removed once eliminated.

This page is brilliant to figure out some of the most basic stats you might need, including games played, goals for and against, points, and form. EFL Trophy Form is especially useful for a cup competition.

Since this competition isn’t as prestigious as the world's biggest tournaments, EFL Trophy player stats can be hard to come by. That’s where this excellent stats page comes in, with almost a dozen metrics to analyse. Here are a few examples of how to use the information:

  • List Icon

    Card betting: Some players are card magnets; you can use these stats to see who is most likely to make rough tackles leading to cards. It’s especially good for in-play betting. If a player doesn’t get subbed, substitution stats will also provide value.

  • List Icon

    Clean sheet betting: Another market that is often overlooked, betting on clean sheets can be worthwhile — particularly in the EFL Trophy group stage, when stronger teams are more likely to dominate.

  • List Icon

    Goalscorer betting: You can’t beat a classic. Betting on a goalscorer can be quite lucrative, and finding players who score goals consistently is a great way to start. It’s also a diverse market with many betting options.

  • List Icon

    Assist betting: There are several stats which could help you pick out a player likely to produce an assist, and these include goal involvement or key passes. The most creative players can often be found topping these lists.

EFL Trophy Top Scorers

There are a myriad of goalscorer markets worth betting on, and goalscorer stats display all the top scorers from the competition.

You can also use assist stats to view goal involvement and get a feel of which players are the most productive and dangerous. Since at least 10 teams change every season, it’s tough to find players who have taken part in many editions of the competition. Nonetheless, these are the competition’s all-time top scorers:

As useful to punters as any betting tool, EFL Trophy team stats can offer tons of value. This table in particular has two tabs that are great for EFL Trophy predictions.

The ‘Team Stats’ tab is all about numbers, and shows a team’s statistics throughout the competition. There are eight different metrics to search through, which can be great for placing bets on corners and several outright markets.

The second tab in the EFL Trophy table — ‘Betting Stats’ — is all about percentages. For each metric, you can see the percentage of times a team successfully reached a milestone. It’s especially brilliant for over/under betting and draw-no-bets.

Team Stats Examples

  • List Icon

    Cards: Team A is playing against Team B in the third round of the group stage, and each team has accumulated eight and nine yellow cards respectively. It’s likely to be a heated affair, and with so many cards already shown, they’ll probably be booked often again.

  • List Icon

    Goals: It’s the knockout rounds, and Team A have scored 15 goals in four matches, whereas Team B has kept zero clean sheets. There’s a good chance that Team A will dominate, or at least grab a goal.

Betting Stats Examples

  • List Icon

    Total Goals: You noticed that in every match Team A played, the final score ended with at least over 2.5 goals scored. Their opponents, Team B, have had this happen 85% of the time, which means that a game ending with over 2.5 goals is likely.

  • List Icon

    Either Half Result: Team A has a 100% record in the ‘To win either half’ metric, while Team B has an abysmal 10% record in the same stat. This indicates that Team A is much more likely to win at least one half, and winning this bet becomes a real possibility.

The fixtures are a massive part of a knockout tournament, as all EFL Trophy games are all or nothing. The EFL Trophy fixtures tab is easy to use and boasts the following handy functions:

  • List Icon

    The fixtures are divided by date and round;

  • List Icon

    To view EFL Trophy results, you can use the arrow button on the left;

  • List Icon

    Use the arrow button on the right to view upcoming EFL Trophy Games.

Finally, the shining star of this fixtures tab is the best odds comparison, which displays the bookmaker with the most favourable odds for result markets. This is the optimal way to maximise your funds.

Betting using EFL Trophy stats opens a whole world of possibilities, and there’s no limit to the way data can be beneficial when placing wagers.

Perfect memory

Even if you have photographic memory, you won’t be able to store the vast amount of data portrayed by these stats. Luckily, all the important metrics worth betting on are right here.

Spotting exceptional bets

Searching through the wide array of metrics across both player and team statistics will give you a great chance of finding a stat which you might not notice otherwise.

One -stop shop

The depth of the statistics is more than enough to cover any bet you might want to place. The only tool that could add even more value to your betting experience is a livestreaming betting site.

Data-Driven Betting Decisions

Why should you utilise betting data? Simple — it is a sure-fire way to create more value and find better opportunities to win bets.

This is mainly because statistics can pick up patterns within the game, being it playing style, formation, tactical instructions or injuries. Figuring out these patterns is the key to success.

Spot Undervalued Betting Opportunities

Stats betting should be inevitable at this point, but how can you take it up a notch and really make stats your primary tool for placing wagers? Well, effecting different strategies to capitalise on these stats is key, and here are a few ways to do just that:

  • Bookmaker offers: Change up your approach entirely. Look for some great promo codes from bookies first, and then use these EFL Trophy statistics to give yourself a better chance of winning bets.

  • Bookmaker odds: When betting, you should always aim to get the best possible odds. Leading football bookmakers will offer excellent odds, but a betting calculator will help identify the top ones.

  • Observe thoroughly: Finally, make sure to look through as many metrics as you can, as you’ll increase the likelihood of finding something worth betting on.

As you can see, EFL Trophy stats are the key to a door worth unlocking — the door to making better bets. As we’ve mentioned, statistics like these are hard to come by and they’re an opportunity not to be missed.

The highest of all EFL Trophy scores occurred in the 2017/18 campaign. Gillingham beat Reading U21, 7-5, in that year’s group stage. Gillingham later lost in the first knockout round.

Lloyd Isgrove has won the competition three times with three different clubs. Peterborough United (2013/14), Barnsley (2015/16) and Bolton Wanderers (2022/23).

Bristol City are the only three-time EFL Trophy winners, winning in 1986, 2003 and 2015.

This competition is only contested by teams in League 1, League 2 and 16 under -21 teams. There are several teams who have been in the Premier League before or after winning the EFL Trophy, including Bournemouth, Wigan, Wolves, Bolton, Birmingham, and Stoke.
