FIRST-ROUND games in the League Cup have proved tough to call so keep any stakes low for tonight's ties.
On Saturday eight of the matches ended in draws and on Sunday Blackpool were surprised at home to Morecambe.
Tonight three Championship sides are in action away from home so it's a tough treble to attempt.
The side I like most are Huddersfield at Preston. We made plenty of money backing Jordan Rhodes to score first and crucially the promoted side have managed to keep their key man.
Rhodes is however on Scotland duty but even without him Huddersfield should be strong enough and they are a best 13-8 with William Hill to win at Deepdale.
The live match sees Oldham take on Sheffield Wednesday with the visitors also looking forward to life in the Championship after promotion.
Last season the Owls won 2-0 at Boundary Park and 3-0 at home so it's a tough test for Paul Dickov's home men and I'm on Wednesday at 11-10 with Coral to edge it.
If there is a shock it could be at Fleetwood where the league new boys entertain Nottingham Forest. It will be a celebration night for Fleetwood who won the Conference so convincingly that they are second favourites for the title behind Rotherham.
Fleetwood are a biggest 13-5 at Coral to shock the Championship side and if that's too risky what about Fleetwood plus one at 4-5 (Blue Square).
