23/10 Pirates To Plunder A Profit

Bristol Rovers are 23/10 with William Hill to cause an upset as they entertain Watford in the Carling Cup first round at the Memorial Stadium.

Bristol Rovers laid out a League Two marker on Saturday, chalking up an impressive, if hard fought, 3-2 success at AFC Wimbledon. That result will provide Paul Buckle’s men with a great confidence boost as they prepare for the visit of Watford in the Carling Cup.

Like the Pirates, the Championship outfit held a 2-0 lead at the weekend before being pegged back, but unlike Rovers the Hornets couldn’t find a winner and had to settle for a 2-2 draw at Burnley and that will have left Sean Dyche’s men wondering what might have been.

They’re nevertheless Coral’s 13/10 favourites to progress to the second round in normal time at the expense of their League Two opponents but set to make a few changes, they could well be caught cold by the buoyant hosts, who tempt at 23/10 with William Hill.

In the evening’s other clash, fresh from their stunning late winner at West Ham, a buzzing Cardiff side should have too much for Oxford and at 11/10 with , the Bluebirds look a fair bet to secure safe passage to the next stage.

Big Jon Parkin meanwhile, could feature at some stage for the visitors and his physical presence is bound to cause problems for the U’s. Subsequently, he’s worth considering at 15/8 (Paddy Power) to find the net at some stage.

Recommended Bets:
Bristol Rovers to beat Watford – 23/10 (William Hill)
Jon Parkin to score at any time – 15/8 (Paddy Power)
