Football - Will Rook


West Ham should ease through to the next round against a Bolton side marooned at the bottom of the Championship.

Next up, Wolves have won seven out of 10 and are great value to beat Bristol Rovers, who have lost three out of four in the division below.

Swansea should bring us home.

Paul Clement’s side have won eight of their last nine League Cup matches against lower league sides.

Back the treble at 3/1*.

Tennis - Adam Drury


Nicolas Mahut was only stopped by semi-finalist Pablo Correno-Busta at the US Open, and will beat Dustin Brown, who did not progress beyond the second round.

Mischa Zverev is a good bet to overcome Pierre-Hughes Herbert in Metz, while world No.24 Shuai Peng will be too strong for Ons Jabeur in Guangzhou.

Back the treble at 11/5*.
