Everton vs Wigan – Inconsistent Wigan set for further slide

| 10.12.2010

Everton enter Saturday’s Premier League meeting with Wigan as the overwhelming 4/9 favourites to win and there’s nothing to suggest an upset is on the cards.

Wigan’s only win over Everton in the last seven Premier League games has been sandwiched in between six Everton wins, and David Moyes’ side are 1/1 to win to nil.

Match Odds

The two sides have competed in just 11 games in their history with six of these coming at Goodison Park.

Of the 11 matches, Everton have won five, lost four and been involved in two draws but at Goodison Park the record reads, four wins, one loss and one draw.

Making a case for backing Wigan at 6/1 is difficult, but the Wigan defence is the seventh best on the road in the Premier League and considering Everton have scored just one goal in each of their last four games, Robert Martinez’s side may be able to sneak a draw which is priced at 10/3.

Total Goals

Wigan’s best hope of taking something from this game lies in a low scoring draw and a 0-0 scoreline is priced at 12/1, a 1-1 scoreline is priced at 6/1 and under 2.5 goals is priced at 1/1.

But Everton average 2.17 goals at Goodison Park against Wigan and a 2-0 Everton scoreline is priced at 6/1 but don’t bank on Louis Saha scoring, the French striker has had 30 shots without finding the net this season.

With Everton so reliant on their midfielders making up for the striker shortfall, a 1-0 Everton win seems the most likely result and is also priced at 6/1.

Tim Cahill is the man most likely to get this goal and he is 7/2 to score first and a Tim Cahill 1-0 Everton win scorecast is priced at 18/1.

A £10 stake on under 1.5 goals in the game would return £37.50. New customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
