Chelsea are 4-1 favourites to win the tournament with Arsenal 6s and Celtic and Rangers both priced at 150-1.
There is a massive game at the foot of the Premiership table on Saturday when Dundee entertain St Mirren.
The hosts (31-20) would move off the foot of the table with a win at Dens and both managers are looking for their first win since their respective appointments.
Saints are 9-5 with the draw 23-10 but I’m on Dundee to win what promises to be a tight, tense and tetchy affair.
Only one place to start looking at the Premier League and this is Sunday's Manchester derby.
After their late wins at Bournemouth and Juventus, United are fast becoming the comeback kings of English or indeed European football.
City have only won two of the last eight derbies and are likely to find Jose Mourinho’s side a tough proposition.
The home is just 4-11 with United 8-1 and the draw 21-5. Whether you feel United have rode their luck or not in recent weeks is irrelevant – they have found a way of getting a result while not playing well and the recommendation must be for United in the double chance market (to win or draw) at 2-1.
Sergio Aguero was rested against Shakhtar Donetsk but will be back. The striker has scored 17 times in his last 13 PL home games and has scored seven times in his last seven against the Red Devils.
Aguero is 4-5 to find the back of David de Gea’s net but Anthony Martial has scored in his last four league games and is 3-1 to join a small but select band of United greats who have scored in five in a row.
The others? Van Nistelrooy, Rooney, Cantona, Yorke, Ronaldo and van Persie.
