IT'S Carling Cup night and bookies will expect to recoup some of the cash won by punters on the Sunday's Old Firm clash and the likes of Man United, Liverpool and Arsenal.

Many of the big boys crashed out in the last round and Paddy Power are asking how many more upsets there will be this week.

With at least one team outside the Premier League guaranteed a quarter-final spot when Ipswich meet Northampton, Paddy Power offer 2-1 Roy Keane's men are the only team below the top flight to make it to the last eight.

But the Irish firm anticipate there being at least one upset on the cards with two non-EPL teams in the last eight paying 6-5 while it's 5-2 for three to make the draw for the next round and 10-1 for four or five.

Paddy Power are also betting on the highest-placed team to exit the competition at this stage with second-placed Arsenal 13-8 and third-placed Manchester United 9-1 ahead of 13-5.

Man United are the biggest name in action and should beat a Wolves side who'll make just as many changes as their hosts. Michael Owen is likely to lead the line for Sir Alex Ferguson's men while Wolves' priority is making sure they avoid the drop.

Alex Ferguson's side have reached the final four times in six years so don't throw away too many ties and should be backed at 2-7 with the likes of Ladbrokes and Paddy Power. Owen is 11-2 with Chandler to break the deadlock.

Birmingham boss Alex McLeish will be eyeing a decent run and will put a side he hopes is too strong for Brentford so back the Blues at 4-11 with Betfred and Skybet.

If there's a shock it could come at Wigan where Roberto Martinez faces his former side who are going great guns in the Championship. The Welsh side are 10-3 at totesport.

Northampton have done little right since beating Liverpool at Anfield in the last round but will be backed by some at 6-1 with Betfred to win at Ipswich. However, Roy Keane's men will see this as a chance to go on a long and lucrative runand I fancy them at 8-15 with bet365.
