Sunderland vs Everton – History points to away win
Sunderland will be on a massive high after their recent victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, but there is every chance that they will return to earth with a bang by losing against Everton.
David Moyes’s team are 15/8 to beat Sunderland and hold a fine record against their hosts in recent seasons.
Everton are unbeaten against Sunderland in their last 12 meetings in all competitions and have landed the spoils on ten of these occasions.
Meanwhile, they have left with the three points on four of their last five visits to the Stadium of Light.
In Sunderland’s favour is that they are still to taste defeat at home in the league this season, while Everton have only triumphed once in their six away games thus far.
Steve Bruce’s team have taken seven points from a possible nine in their last three league games and are 7/5 to continue this fine form by beating Everton.
One of the most intriguing bets is where the first goal is going to come from, with plenty of value on offer in this betting market.
Sunderland have managed just one goal in their last five Premier League games against Everton, but in Asamoah Gyan have one of the form strikers in the division.
Gyan has scored four goals in their last three league games and is 9/2 to open the scoring.
Bruce will also be able to call upon leading marksman Darren Bent for the first time since October because of an ankle injury and he is 4/1 to break the deadlock.
Everton’s main concern continues to be a lack of goals from their strikers and with Sunderland keeping clean sheets in their last three home games, it is hard to see where the goals will come from.
Tim Cahill represents perhaps their best hope and he is 6/1 to strike first. See the full Sunderland vs Everton football betting odds market.
