Carling Cup betting, West Ham - Aldershot

West Ham are still (my, at least) top favorites for direct promotion, they simply have an unreal players for the second tier. They won both away games, but at Upton Park noticed just a point from two games. Both times they conceded in the last minutes (Cardiff 0-1, Leeds 2-2). I think they will try to finally put some good display at home and notice a convincing victory. Big Sam will certainly rotate, but he has very good fringe players anyway. West Ham also have a good League Cup history results.

Aldershot started the season in League Two with a win on opening day and three defeats in a row (without scoring). This is very big game for the Shots, but I think all will depend on West Ham and their approach to the game. Visitors will try to keep the pace as long as they can, but difference in the quality is simply huge.

It’s a good chance for the Hammers to demonstrate the power. They have a squad to successfully play in all competitions and simply they owe it to the fans.
