Live on Skysports 1: Sun 16.00: Everton travel to Bolton as 7/4 slim favs with 888sport, but it’s hard to see a clear winner here.
Everton played some scintillating football last weekend, notching five times as they overcame Blackpool and their attacking performance bodes well for the trip to Bolton. However, David Moyes’ men showed worrying vulnerability at the back, shipping three goals against the Seasiders and that makes Sunday’s televised clash at the Reebok Stadium between the Toffees and Bolton, somewhat tough to call.
The Trotters are slight outsiders at 15/8 with , despite enjoying home advantage, while Everton are 888Sport’s jollies at odds of 7/4. This indecision lends appeal to Betdaq’s 3.3 (23/10) marked against a stalemate and adding to the case for the draw is the fact that Moyes’ charges have shared the spoils in seven of their 13 away matches.
In turn, Ladbrokes’ 11/2 for it to finish one-each will attract cash, especially as the Trotters have hardly been in convincing form of late, winning just one of their last seven and also set to be popular is Betfred’s 4/1 for it to be level at the end of each half.
Of the two, the Toffees perhaps have the slightest edge, although not enough to warrant a flutter on an away win, but they can be backed at a tempting 10/11 in William Hill’s ‘Draw No Bet’ market. They’ll certainly be in with a shout if Louis Saha picks up where he left off last week and the Frenchman will be well backed at 13/2 (bet365) to follow his four-goal salvo with the first in this one.
Totesport meanwhile, chalk odds of 8/11 against both teams finding the net and Stan James quote evens for the contest to produce at least three goals.
