Punters Can Cash In On Shock Factor

Football Betting: Live on Skysports 3: Wed & Thu 19.45: Carling Cup 2nd round action this week; not all of the top sides will have it their own way, who is at risk of slipping up?

Some upsets are inevitable at this stage in the Carling Cup as many top flight teams consider the Premiership to be their main priority and field weakened teams. Shrewd punters can therefore cash in at big prices if they manage to hit on the vulnerable teams that succumb to lower division opposition and there are a few candidates that fall into that category this week.

Wigan have conceded ten goals in the league so far, and failed to register at the other end so they will be far from relishing a trip to Hartlepool, who are unbeaten across their three League One games. ‘Pools therefore look huge at 11/4 with Betfred to heap more misery on Roberto Martinez’s side.

Similarly, another League One side that can account for Premiership opposition are Leyton Orient. The O’s entertain West Brom, for whom the weekend trip to Liverpool is more important and a home win is therefore huge at 4/1 (bet365). Blackpool too have other things on their mind as they travel to MK Dons and the Seasiders won’t be too despondent if Paddy Power’s 2/1 shots eliminate them from the competition.

Elsewhere, improving Norwich look overpriced at 5/1 (Betdaq) to get the better of what will be an under-strength Blackburn side, Southampton (2/1, William Hill) could edge out a Bolton second-string while Sheffield Wednesday are capable, at 11/5 with Stan James, of recording a mini-upset at Scunthorpe.
