The Spaniard is set to sign on the dotted line after the Toffees agreed a compensation package with his former club Wigan and he’s 5/1 to do what his predecessor David Moyes couldn’t by bringing a cup to Goodison Park.
However, Ladbrokes make Moyes 4/5 to win more trophies than his replacement (10/1) in a match bet.
Ladbrokes also post evens against Everton beating neighbours Liverpoool and make the Blues 12/1 to complete a rare league double over their Merseyside rivals.
Elsewhere, Martinez is 1/4 (Ladbrokes) to last the season and the same firm make him 50/1 to surpass Moyes’s eleven years in charge at the club.
Meanwhile, where Wigan’s players are concerned, Ladbrokes have already cut Callum McManaman from 5/2 to 2/1 to join his former boss at Everton with James McCarthy and James McCarthur both 6/1 shots to be Everton players by the end of the transfer window.
Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes told Betrescue: “It’s been nearly 20 years since Everton got their hands on some silverware and we fancy Martinez to do the business and show he’s more than just a relegation specialist.”
