Considering that three of the four Capital One Cup quarter finals pit Premier League outfits against sides residing in lower divisions, the prospect of backing all four favourites to prevail is certainly an appealing one.
Throw in Chelsea to win at Derby, Southampton to triumph at Sheffield United and Liverpool to do the same at Bournemouth with Tottenham to best Newcastle on home turf and land a 17/2 payday if it proves successful.
For what do we owe this spectacularly oversized price? Why, it’s bwin’s Combi+ enhanced multiple offer, of course.
Here’s how the big guns are going to drop the bacon into backer’s bank accounts across these next two nights:
Chelsea to beat Derby @ 9/20
The Blues have beaten Derby in seven of the eight matches the pair have contested, while they’ve seen off 14 of 16 lower league adversaries inside 90 minutes in this competition and are yet to lose on this streak.

Southampton to beat Sheffield United @ 53/100
Saints are struggling in the top-flight of late, but the Blades aren’t faring much better.
They’ve won just the solitary League One game since the end of October and have failed to best Ronald Koeman’s men in three of four at Bramall Lane.
The St Mary’s side have prevailed in three more difficult away matches in this competition already, scoring at least two goals on trips to Millwall, Arsenal and Stoke.
Liverpool to beat Bournemouth @ evens
Everything may look a bit grim for Reds at the minute, but ejection from the Capital One Cup isn’t on the cards.
Brendan Rodgers’ troops may have returned triumphant from just three away trips so far, whereas the Cherries are undefeated in eight on the homestead, but their porous backline will afford Liverpool plenty of goalscoring opportunities.
They haven’t kept a clean sheet in five at base camp, conceding at least two in their last four.
Such generosity is sure to cost them against foes of the Reds’ stature.
Tottenham to beat Newcastle @ 4/5
The Toon prospered on their previous pair of visits to White Hart Lane, but had lost four on the spin prior to this.
Newcastle’s hot streak appears to have run cold on the road too; they’ve failed to win on each of their previous three sojourns, losing on two trips to the capital across this spell.
