Premier League teams avoided embarrassment in Tuesday's Carabao Cup matches, but will it be plain-sailing for the teams in action on Wednesday?
Mikel Arteta won't be relishing a trip to The Hawthorns after a poor start to the season. Championship side West Brom sit joint top of the Championship after an unbeaten start to the season.
Things aren't so rosy for the Gunners who are pointless in the Premier League after their two opening matches and face a duanting trip to Man City at the weekend. Arteta's position is already under scrutiny and the last thing he needs is an early exit from the League Cup.
But it's going to be real test of their mettle against Valérien Ismaël's side who will smell blood. West Brom are 5/1 to win inside the 90 minutes and that'll tempt plenty of punters. To qualify from the tie the Baggies are 12/5 and on the Double Chance market they're 5/4, all at Bet365.
Another way to get on side with West Brom is in the corners market, where they're 11/10 to take five or more. They've hit an average of 6.75 per match in four league games while the Gunners have conceded fiver per match in the league so far.
Finally, if you fancy the Baggies to score then look to Bet365's 10/11 on them finding the net before the 79th minute.
The all-Premier League tie at St James' Park looks tough to call, especially until we see team news. Newcastle and Burnley have yet to register a point in the Premier League so it's the chance for either to kick-start their season. With home advanatge the Toon are even money to win inside the 90 minutes, while Burnley are 3/1.
Finally in the Carabao Cup Southampton make the trip to League Two's Newport County. Villa, Leeds, Wolves and Norwich all recorded comprehensive wins over lower-placed opposition on Tuesday and the Saints will be aiming to emulate that.
They're 9/20 to win but can be backed at 7/10 on the asian handicap -1.0.
