Carling Cup betting, Peterborough - Middlesbrough

The Posh started this campaign in a very good manner with two wins, draw and a defeat. These are results: C.Palace (H) 2-1, Stevenage - previous Cup round (A) 2-2, Blackpool (A) 1-2, Millwall (A) 2-2, Ipswich (H) 7-1! They’re without Gabriel Zakuani, Nicky Ajose, Dave Hibbert and goalkeeper Joe Lewis, but it’s not about who will play. The Posh have a system that always brings goals, for and against. Additionally, their last 13 of 15 League Cup games ended with three or more goals.

‘Boro started to justify the role of favorites from previous season. Change of managers, looking for suitable style of play, questionable players’ selection were the problems, but now they finally started to look like serious promotion contenders. Three wins and a draw in league and win over Walsall away in the Cup. Four of these five produced three or more goals. Also, last six Carling Cup games ended with three or more goals.

I think Tony Mowbray’s side is a slight favourite here, they’re in very good shape and will certainly try to keep the momentum with another win. On the other, hand... It’s Posh. Goals for me.
