With two Scottish Premier League sides falling to lower league opposition this time last year, tonight promises to be no different.
Aberdeen face arguably the toughest tie of the SPL sides as they host First Division outfit Dundee, who are priced at 51/20 to progress in bwin’s 3Way football betting market.
Craig Brown’s side were semi-finalists last year, but an embarrassing loss against Third Division Queen’s Park just five seasons ago lingers in the memory of most Aberdeen fans.
They face further League Cup misery after a horrible month, with their first goals of the SPL season coming only last Saturday, in what was their fifth game. A bet on the Dons not to score again tonight looks good value at 4/1.
Dundee have been on the road in five of their six matches this season, winning three times. At 15/4, punters who use their free £25 bet for joining bwin.com to back Dundee to win in 90 minutes could earn themselves £118.75.
Further south, East Fife host SPL new boys Dunfermline, who make the short 20-mile trip across Fife.
With an impressive history in the tournament, becoming the first side to win the cup three times, East Fife found their League Cup form of old in Paisley just four seasons ago as they caused the shock of the round by dumping St Mirren out.
They look worth a bet with odds of 21/4 to shock the country again tonight.
St Mirren themselves will look to avoid a repeat of recent League Cup humiliation, especially given that they play their fierce rivals, Greenock Morton.
The Saints travel to the First Division team after winning their annual pre-season derby 4-2.
A bet on the home side to make up for that with a win tonight looks an appealing at 16/5.
Meanwhile, a bet on another high-scoring match could prove good value with odds of 11/5 for over 3.5 goals.
