Wednesday EFL Cup Tips: Back uneventful half when Wolves host Spurs

Nuno.
Will Nuno's Spurs continue to struggle to find the net when they travel to Wolves?

Neither Wolves or Spurs can score and Dan Fitch has tipped a goalless first-half when they meet in the EFL Cup, as he previews Wednesday's third round matches.

"The visitors have only scored three goals from five Premier League matches this season and with Wolves scoring just two over the same period, a low scoring match seems inevitable."

Back Wolves and Tottenham to draw 0-0 at half-time at 2.89/5

Brighton will win even with changes

Brighton's progress under Graham Potter continued at the weekend, with a 2-1 home win over Leicester that sent the Seagulls up to fourth in the table (P5 W4 D0 L1). In the last round Potter heavily rotated and still won 2-0 at Cardiff.

With home advantage on this occasion, it seems likely that Brighton will find their way past a Swansea side that are 21st in the Championship (P8 W1 D4 L3). Back Brighton to win half-time/full-time at 2.68/5.

Arsenal to win by another big score

Arsenal 1.162/13 v Wimbledon 18.5; The Draw 9.08/1

It's a London derby that's not been seen for some time, as Arsenal host Wimbledon. With the Gunners at home, a giant-killing seems unlikely, especially since Arsenal's form has picked up in recent weeks.

Mikel Arteta's team won 6-0 at West Brom in the last round and have won their last two games in the Premier League 1-0, beating Norwich and Burnley. An Arsenal win and over 3.5 goals is 2.26/5

Chelsea's squad full of quality

Chelsea 1.422/5 v Aston Villa 7.513/2; The Draw 4.67/2

Villa made a large number of changes when they beat Barrow 6-0 in the second round, but to do something similar against Chelsea would be a huge mistake. The quality of Chelsea's squad was apparent in their 3-0 win over Spurs on Sunday, when they were able to bring on the likes of N'Golo Kante and Timo Werner in the second-half.

Chelsea can normally be trusted to keep a clean sheet, but with the potential for defensive rotation and Aston Villa having plenty of attacking talent to draw on, it might be better to back goals. A Chelsea win and over 2.5 goals is 2.26/5.

Take a chance on Millwall finding the net

Millwall 4.1 v Leicester 1.875/6; The Draw 3.711/4

Wednesday 22 September, 19:45

Millwall are 18th in the Championship, but their 3-1 win over Cambridge in the last round has sparked something of an upturn, with Gary Rowett's team now unbeaten in five (W2 D3).

Leicester could do with a victory to give their season a similar jumpstart, with Sunday's defeat at Brighton meaning that they have only won two of their five Premier League games (L3). One would think that the class in their squad would mean that they would eventually find some form, but if backing the visitors to pick up a much needed win, combine a Leicester victory with both teams to score at odds of 3.814/5.

Another low scoring match

Wolves 2.47/5 v Tottenham 3.211/5; The Draw 3.211/5
Wednesday 22 September, 19:45

Spurs won 1-0 at Wolves back in August, but it wasn't a convincing performance and their results have since taken a downturn, with Nuno's side losing their last two Premier League games 3-0.

The visitors have only scored three goals from five Premier League matches this season and with Wolves scoring just two over the same period, a low scoring match seems inevitable. Back the 0-0 half-time draw at 2.89/5.
