Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
Rochdale welcome Huddersfield Town at their Spotland Stadium in the opening match of their Carabao Cup campaign. Following back-to-back wins over Stockport County and Atherton Collieries, the Dale suffered a 2-1 loss to Port Vale in their last warm-up game. Anyhow, Brian Barry-Murphy’s troops look sharp in front of goal ahead of the visit of Huddersfield Town. The Terriers, on the other hand, did well to secure the Championship survival in the last season finale, and they have big ambitions for the upcoming season.
Since Huddersfield Town have been scoring goals for fun in preseason, we believe that there is a big value in betting on over 2.5 goals. You should bear in mind that over 2.5 goals have been netted in each of their previous seven meetings in all competitions, which is yet another reason why a high-scoring affair is on the horizon.
