Morecambe - Wolverhampton Wanderers Betting Preview: Expect a goal fest at the Globe Arena

The Shrimps host Wolves tonight in the Capital One Cup, with our tipster Hugh Wilson backing goals in this first round tie
Wolverhampton Wanderers travel north to Morecambe tonight as Kenny Jackett looks to continue Wolves fantastic run in the Capital One Cup first round.

The Midlands side haven’t lost a first round match in the League Cup since 2006, where Chesterfield knocked them out on penalties. The Shrimpers haven’t got a bad record in this competition either though, winning their last three first round matches, beating higher league opposition on each occasion.

Tuesday's visitors managed to beat Aldershot and Northampton Town last season, before being destroyed by Chelsea 6-0 at Stamford Bridge. William Hill price them as favourites at 19/20 (1.95) to win in 90 minutes. The same firm offer the draw at 23/10 (3.30).

Morecambe come into this match after losing their opening game of the season 1-0 away to Wycombe Wanderers.

Jim Bentley’s men had a disappointing season last term, finishing 16th in League Two so they'll be looking to use this as a result to kick start their campaign.

The Shrimps are no push overs when it comes to the League Cup though, beating Blackpool 2-1 in last years first round. William Hill price the home side at 3/1 (4.00) to come out on top in 90 minutes.

A bet that stands out in this fixture is over 2.5 goals at 10/11 (1.91) with William Hill. Despite Wolves drawing 0-0 at the weekend, this bet would have paid out in Wolves last four games before that, as well as in six of Wolves last seven League Cup ties.
