Carabao Cup tips: Plymouth to knock out another Championship side?

| 28.08.2018

There’s more Carabao Cup second round action tonight with four games taking place across the country.

Nottingham Forest host Newcastle United in the TV game. Will there be an upset at the City Ground? You can see a full preview for that one right here.

We’ve got tips for the other three games right here…

Millwall v Plymouth Argyle (7:45pm)

Plymouth dumped Bristol City out of the cup in the last round. But they’re up against it at 6/1 to win here.

Millwall are 1/2 favourites, but they’ll be without Shaun Hutchinson and new record signing Tom Bradshaw.

The Lions have also only won one of their six games this season in 90 minutes. Plymouth or Draw is 13/8 in the Double Chance market.

Neil Harris could give some fringe players a run out. The Pilgrims could take advantage. They’ll be determined to get back on track after Saturday’s 5-1 loss to Peterborough.

Everton v Rotherham (7:45pm)

Everton are unbeaten so far under new boss Marco Silva. They should continue that streak against Rotherham. Silva will ring the changes, but his side are still 1/5 favourites.

They’re likely to be up against a weakened Rotherham team. Avoiding relegation is the Millers’ priority. It’s 10/11 for Everton to Win to Nil.

Oumar Niasse looks set to get the nod front for the Toffees. He’s 11/4 to open the scoring.

Summer signing Bernard could make his first start for the Merseyside club too. The Brazilian is 6/4 to mark the occasion with a goal.

Reading v Watford (8:00pm)

Reading have bigger concerns than a decent cup run at the minute. They’re second-bottom of the Championship and haven’t won a league game yet this season.

Watford couldn’t be feeling better as they sit fourth in the top tier with three wins from three. It’s no surprise the Hornets are 4/5 favourites here.

On paper, this should be a comfortable win for the Premier League side. But Javi Gracia is likely to field an unfamiliar line-up. It may take them a while to get going. Watford and Under 2.5 Goals is 16/5.

The Royals have only scored once in front of their own fans in league action so far this term. We go 21/10 for Watford to Win to Nil.

Andre Gray should lead the line for the visitors. He’s 9/2 to score First or 13/8 to get a goal Anytime.
