Blackpool vs QPR

This League One versus Championship tie puts together two teams that have enjoyed resurgent runs of late, each losing just one of their last five matches in their respective divisions. Naturally, QPR are the favourites to progress given their higher Football League status and are currently priced at 8/5 with SkyBet to come away with the victory at Bloomfield Road. Meanwhile, Blackpool can be backed at 2/1 with SkyBet to cause an upset in this contest. We’re backing the away side to seal their place in the next round.

Recommended bet: QPR win at 8/5 with SkyBet – BET HERE

Bournemouth vs Blackburn

After being well-beaten by Burnley at the weekend, Bournemouth will be keen to bounce back against Blackburn on Tuesday night in the Carabao Cup. However, they will be coming up against a confident Rovers team, fresh off of winning 3-2 away at Stoke last time out. Bournemouth are well fancied with most bookies, including Bet365, BetVictor and Betfair who all have them at 1/2 to win. Those who fancy a Blackburn win can get them at 13/2 with Coral.

Recommended bet: Jermain Defoe to score first and Bournemouth to win at 3/1 with Bet365 – BET HERE

Burton vs Burnley

Burton will be aiming to cause an upset in the Carabao Cup against Premier League Burnley on Tuesday, but have perhaps ran into the Clarets at the wrong time. Sean Dyche’s men thrashed Bournemouth 4-0 at the weekend and will be full of confidence as they approach this contest. Unibet have Burnley at 1/1 to make it two wins on the trot tonight. Alternatively, Burton can be backed to win at 16/5 with Coral, but we like the visitors chances.

Recommended bet: Burnley win at 1/1 with Unibet – BET HERE

Millwall vs Fulham

A London derby features in Tuesday night’s round of fixtures in the League Cup, as Millwall clash with Fulham. The previous meeting between these two sides saw Fulham run out comfortable 3-0 winners and they will be hoping to repeat that result this time around. Fulham are fancied with most to beat the out-of-form Lions, with the Premier League outfit priced at 11/10 to get the win with Betfred. Meanwhile, Millwall are 27/10 with BetVictor and although they have had a sluggish start, we’re backing them to cause an upset against what is expected to be a much-changed Fulham outfit.

Recommended bet: Millwall win at 27/10 with BetVictor – BET HERE

Oxford United vs Manchester City

Currently 23rd in League One, there isn’t too much optimism that Oxford United will be able to stop Manchester City in their tracks on Tuesday night at the Kassam Stadium. The reigning Premier League champions are unsurprisingly overwhelming favourites to seal their place in the fourth round, with value being scarce on Pep Guardiola’s team in the betting market. They are best priced at 1/10 to win here with Unibet, while Oxford are 30/1 to win with Betfair.

Recommended bet: Middlesbrough win to nil at 4/1 with Bet365 – BET HERE

Preston vs Middlesbrough

The all-Championship clash at Deepdale looks relatively one-sided on paper, but the element of the cup can see no side written off altogether. Preston are currently bottom of the Championship after losing their last three in a row, while Middlesbrough sit second, but the hosts did knock Leeds out of this competition in the previous round. That appears to be weighing true in the betting market, with Preston favoured at 6/4 with SkyBet, while Middlesbrough are priced at 21/10 with Bet365. We fancy the away team to get the job done.

Recommended bet: Middlesbrough win to nil at 4/1 with Bet365 – BET HERE

Wolves vs Leicester

Two Midlands Premier League teams meet at Molineux on Tuesday in what is the second fixture between these two teams this season. Leicester came out on top in the previous meeting, beating Wolves 2-0 at home but this cup tie could prove to be a different story. Both are expected to make changes, but Wolves are still favourites at 5/4 with Bet365, while Leicester have a healthy price of 12/5 with BetVictor. Expect goals in this one.

Recommended bet: Wolves win and both teams to score YES at 7/2 with SkyBet – BET HERE

Wycombe vs Norwich

Daniel Farke’s Norwich will be hoping to extend their recent run of form with a momentum-building victory against Wycombe on Tuesday night. The Canaries have won four of their last five outings and run into a Wycombe team who have failed to win in four in League One. Norwich are priced at evens with BetVictor, Betfair and Coral, while Wycombe are best-priced to win at 3/1 with Bet365.

Recommended bet: Norwich win at 1/1 with BetVictor – BET HERE

Manchester United vs Derby County

Jose Mourinho takes on former player Frank Lampard in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday evening, in what should be an intriguing clash at Old Trafford. United have had a disappointing opening to the campaign, drawing 1-1 at home to Wolves last time out, while Derby picked up a huge win last time out with a 3-1 success over Brentford. Playing at Old Trafford, there isn’t too much value in United, who are best-priced at 2/9 with SkyBet, with a Derby win looking unlikely if Coral’s price of 18/1 is anything to go by.

Recommended bet: Manchester United win and both teams to score at 11/5 with Bet365 – BET HERE

West Bromwich Albion vs Crystal Palace

Last season, these two teams were meeting each other in the Premier League and will reunite in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday in an encounter that looks tough to call. The Baggies are in excellent form in the Championship, winning five of their last seven, while Palace have just one win in five in the league, meaning the strength of their respective lineups could decide the contest. The draw is actually favoured in this meeting at 18/5 with BetVictor and it is difficult to argue against it, with this tie likely needing penalties.

Recommended bet: Draw at 18/5 with BetVictor – BET HERE
