Bradford v Arsenal Odds: Bantams bid to upset the Capital One Cup betting

There is live action from the quarter-finals of the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night as League Two outfit Bradford take on Premier League side Arsenal at Valley Parade. The bookies fancy Bradford have it all to do as they go in as big underdogs against what is likely to be a second-string Arsenal, who will be desperate to avoid an upset.

Arsene Wenger will no doubt respect the opposition this week but he will rotate his side as he always does for this competition and the Gunners start as 2/5 odds on favourites with BetFred, while Bradford are 7/1 to cause an upset and 4/1 to draw. The Bantams are no strangers to causing an upset as they have already claimed a Premiership scalp in this competition.

Bradford beat Wigan on penalties after holding Roberto Martinez's side to a 0-0 draw in the last round and they will hope to achieve something similar this week. It bodes well for them that they have the best defensive record on home soil in League Two, conceding just six goals in 11 games, and under 2.5 goals is an 11/8 punt for Tuesday's match.

They go into the game full of confidence after losing just one of their last 12 games to rise to fourth in their league and Nehki Wells has been in fine form. The Bermudan striker has scored 14 goals already this term and the bookies have recognised his goalscoring prowess as he is a 7/1 punt to be first goalscorer and 15/8 to score anytime.

With Wells in their ranks, Bradford look capable of scoring a goal against a much-changed Arsenal side and both teams to score can be backed at an industry best price 4/5. Wenger will no doubt give his second string a chance to shine as he so often does in this competition but rotation can lead to disruption, particularly defensively.

It is going forward that Arsenal have been most impressive though as they have scored 13 goals in their two Capital One Cup matches so far - beating Coventry 6-1 and Reading 7-5. They will look to maintain that offensive threat on Tuesday and over 3.5 goals is available at 11/8 in the latest betting with BetFred.

Andrey Arshavin has taken a liking to this competition and the Russian midfielder might not convince in the Premiership but he has enough quality to outclass lower league opposition. Arshavin has scored three and set up eight goals in his last eight League Cup appearances and he is a best price 8/1 to score first on Tuesday.

Arshavin is likely to get a rare chance to impress as he struggles to force his way into an Arsenal side that picked up their first win in five with a 2-0 victory over West Brom in the Premier League on Saturday. It was the fifth Arsenal game in six that has ended with under 2.5 goals but their League Cup exploits are rarely short of goal or two and the correct score of 3-1 to the Gunners at 10/1 could be worth a look.
