Iron legend Lee Hodges kicked off the season with a bang and his banker treble landed with Forest, Derby and Middlesborough all obliging on the opening day of the season.
A full update will follow the Carling Cup games tonight with the standings so far.
PICKS FOR CARLING CUP 12/08/14
LEE HODGES PICKS
Bolton v Bury – Bolton (4/7)
Luton v Swindon – Luton (6/4)
Shrewsbury v Blackpool- Shrewsbury (6/5)
Treble Odds 11/1
After such a disappointing first half at Swindon, it would be difficult to back the Iron tonight at 9/2. Strange things do tend to happen in the Carling Cup, and both teams to score does look a good bet. Luton will be confident they can score at home against Swindon whilst there has to be some value in Oldham goal machine Jonny Forte (no… really!) doing the business again tonight against Middlesborough.
Blackburn v Scunthorpe- BBTS 8/11
Luton v Swindon – BTTS 7/10
Oldham v Middlesborough- Forte Anytime 15/8
Treble Odds 7/1
