Sportingbet preview: Everton

Tottenham will look to continue the rich vein of form that has carried them through to 2011 at Everton on Wednesday night and the Sportingbet book makes them narrow favourites at 6/4.

Everton’s home form has been among the worst in the top flight, with only Blackpool gathering fewer points on their own pitch having played three games less. That explains the Toffees’ underdog status, priced 31/20, with the draw considered an 11/5 shot.

Indeed, Spurs last three trips to Goodison Park have ended all square, while the 1-1 at White Hart Lane also suggests the value lies with honours even.

Regardless of the match result, it is goals that pay punters on this Premier League matchday, as Sportingbet’s Goal Rush promo returns with the promise to refund losing bets if there are five or more strikes on show. As ever, take your pick from the Correct Score, First Goalscorer, Anytime Goalscorer and Scorecast markets to qualify and start cheering for goals!

Gareth Bale’s return to net-bulging form could make him your pick at 3/1 to score at any time, but Spurs’ attacking intent means anyone from Rafael Van der Vaart (7/5 any time) to fit-again Michael Dawson (12/1 any time) could be worth a poke.

And there’s also some value to be found in the Double Result market, where you can back Tottenham to be leading at half-time and full-time at 14/5, foresee a struggle with Draw-Tottenham at 9/2 or predict an epic with 33/1 on offer for Everton-Tottenham!

Odds correct at time of writing...
