Capital One Cup Double: Another upset for Leeds and goals aplenty at Wigan

There are five games to choose from in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday and Al Hain-Cole is banking on goals at the DW Stadium and another Leeds upset for a juicy double paying 27/10

Bradford City
Kick-off: 19:45 GMT
Tip: Over 2.5 goals at 4/7 (1.57) with Bet365

Bradford City travel to Wigan as the lowest-ranked team still left in the competition, having reached the last 16 of the Capital One Cup for the first time in 24 years.

However, Phil Parkinson's men are unlikely to go any further, as they face a Premier League side in good spirits following their 2-1 win over West Ham at the weekend.

The Latics brushed both Nottingham Forest and West Ham aside by a 4-1 scoreline away from home in the previous rounds, and will be confident of dispatching their League Two opponents on home territory.

The visitors reached this stage in similarly thrilling fashion, first coming from behind late on to upset Watford 2-1, then overcoming Burton Albion 3-2 in extra time after being two goals behind at half-time.

If these games are anything to go by, then we should be in for a cracking cup tie at the DW Stadium, where the crowd can realistically expect to see at least three goals.

You can back this coming to pass at odds of 4/7 (1.57) with Bet365, and it is certainly where the smart money lies this evening.

This bet would have paid out in seven of Wigan's last eight games, and they are surely capable of exceeding that total all by themselves.

Leeds United
Kick-off: 19:45 GMT
Leeds to win at 7/5 (2.40) with Bet365

After knocking out in-form Everton in the previous round, Leeds will be hoping to create another upset as they welcome Southampton to Elland Road.

Neil Warnock certainly seems fired up for this competition after the Everton result, and can be relied upon to pull out all the stops in an effort to ensure their cup run continues.

With a full-strength side cheered on by a partisan home crowd, the Championship outfit are sure to be a good match for their Premier League visitors.

Southampton's season has been undermined by a woeful defensive record that has seen them concede a record 26 goals after just nine league games, and they are bound to come under pressure from a side that has only failed to score once in their last 18 matches.

Nigel Adkins is expected to make wholesale changes to the side that pushed Tottenham all the way on Sunday, and this squad rotation is often fatal for top-flight clubs in the cup competitions.

With Saints focusing their attention on Premier League survival, the motivated hosts have an excellent opportunity to take advantage and pull another shock out of the bag this evening.

Another memorable night under the floodlights awaits for Warnock's men, and there's a handy 7/5 (2.40) on offer about a home victory here which completes Tuesday's double.
