With three Carling Cup second round replays on tonight punters are afforded the opportunity to place some football bets before the international break starts on Friday.
England’s European Championships qualification campaign takes precedent for the next eight days and so tonight offers a chance to bet on some domestic action.
With just three games there isn’t too much form to study, and while Southampton maybe flying high in the Championship, Paolo Di Canio’s Swindon may just have the nous to defeat the team second in the Championship.
Elsewhere Leyton Orient look the pick of tonight’s bets at 6/5 to defeat Bristol Rovers and Carlisle can end Aldershot’s giant-killing run.
Combine the three teams in an accumulator and get a return of £24.75 for a £1 stake.
Swindon to beat Southampton @ 7/2
Southampton lost just 10 games and boasted the second best away form in League One last season, but they still lost to Swindon at The County Ground.
Swindon have made a terrible start to life in League Two under Di Canio but this could be the game that turns their season around and as they are able to draw on the confidence of last season’s victory, they look a big price at 7/2.
Di Canio has his side pumped for tonight’s game and the home support could prove the difference.
Leyton Orient to beat Bristol Rovers @ 6/5
Backing Leyton Orient tonight is worth a bet on it’s own, the O’s have won all of their last four meetings with Bristol Rovers scoring 14 and conceding 2 in the last two seasons.
Russell Slade’s side may have lost their last four on the spin but Rover’s have also made an indifferent start to life in League Two and Orient look a great bet to advance into the third round.
Carlisle to beat Aldershot @ 6/4
Aldershot may have caused the scalp of the second round when defeating West Ham United, but their home advantage won’t help them tonight.
Aldershot are yet to win at home this season while Carlisle have won three of their four away games this season and the League One side should have too much for the League Two Aldershot tonight.
