Football Betting - Carling Cup 4th Round Draw Odds
After defeating Blackburn Rovers in a tough third round match, Chelsea are still the wagering favourites for this season's Carling Cup. The Blues (at 3/1 odds) face Aston Villa (priced 11/1) in the fourth round. Jose Mourinho’s side failed to beat Villa in a recent Premiership game at Stamford Bridge. If Mourinho continues to rotate players in this competition, the Birmingham side will definitely like their chances.
Manchester United, who are joint second favourites at 5/1 odds, scored a very late goal against Crewe to lock up a spot in the final 16. They have been given a ticket to Roots Hall to face Championship newcomers Southend (150/1 bet odds). Sir Alex Ferguson has most likely been stunned by the dearth of quality in Man United’s second string, just months after they failed to beat Burton at the first try in last year's FA Cup.
Arsenal (quoted at 6/1) are another side that like to field a second eleven in the Carling Cup. They can still create a polished form of football that results from their more experienced stars. That was clearly evident when they defeated West Bromwich Albion in the third round. They will play against Everton (10/1) at Goodison Park in an all Premiership match.
