Draw Can Land Punters A Rovers Return

FOOTBALL BETTING: Live On Sky Sports 1: 20:00
Blackburn Rovers and Aston Villa play their rearranged Carling Cup Semi Final First Leg at Ewood park tonight. Chris Hutcheon previews the match

Blackburn haven’t won in eleven across all competitions and it’s hard to see them snapping that sequence as they entertain Aston Villa in the first leg of the pair’s Carling Cup semi-final tie.

Victor Chandler make Rovers 2/1 to take a lead to Villa Park, while Martin O’Neill’s side are 6/4 (Betfred) to put themselves firmly in the driving seat ahead of the pair’s second encounter in just over a fortnight’s time.

Co-incidentally, the pair met in the FA Cup just under a fortnight ago, Villa prevailing 3-1, but it’s Totesport’s 12/5 for the draw that looks the call in this one, as Sam Allardyce’s men are relatively solid on their own patch, despite their poor form in general.

888Sport post an alluring 6/1 against the contest finishing one-each and in a clash that Jaxx.com price at 7/10 to produce fewer than 2.5 goals, the hosts look decent value at 11/10 (Stan James) to break the deadlock.

At 1/2 with bet365 however, it’s O’Neill’s men that should ultimately book their place at Wembley even if they fail to win at Ewood Park.
