EFL Carabao Cup Round 3: Miller has picks and parlays for Chelsea vs Barnsley, Fleetwood Town vs Everton, and Morecambe vs Newcastle United
Most of the time in England, the early rounds of the cup tournaments have minnows against the big boys, or maybe a nondescript tie (for us, of course).
Every once in a while, though, you get a banger.
Wednesday, that match is Leicester City vs. Arsenal.
I am going to stay away from that one and go with the heavy favorites, as I like to do in these early rounds. Look for three Premier League sides to put out their reserves, much like Manchester United did Tuesday, but find a way at the end of the day to advance rather easily.
