Magnificent Seven - Prem teams to qualify in Carling Cup
William Hill are offering odds of 7/1 that the seven Premier League teams in Carling Cup action on Tuesday night (Villa, Wolves, West Brom, QPR, Norwich, Sunderland and Swansea) ALL make it through to the next round.
‘All seven are entitled to go through, but clubs often rest key players in these types of game and the opposition is usually fired up by the prospect of taking a Premier League scalp, so we're hopeful that at least one side will be the victims of an upset.'

7/4 Northampton v Wolves 2/5
13/8 Bournemouth v West Brom 4/9
1/4 QPR v Rochdale 11/4
2/5 Swansea v Shrewsbury 7/4
