West Brom vs Everton – Toffees to ensure hosts get unwanted record

| 14.05.2011

Everton are one of the form teams in the Premier League at present and they can take advantage of a West Brom team short on creativity to leave the Hawthorns with three points.

Match Odds

It is 13/8 in the Premier League that Everton beat West Brom and they will certainly have redemption on their minds after a humiliating 4-1 defeat in the reverse fixture at Goodison Park earlier in the campaign.

Everton are in good enough form to claim their revenge as they have taken 21 points from their last ten Premier League games, which is a record that is only bettered by Chelsea in this period.

West Brom are also 13/8 to land the spoils and this looks decent value for a team that have lost just one of their last eight games at home.

With the pair both having little to play for over their final two games, they may just play out a draw at 23/10.

First Goalscorer

If West Brom concede against Everton they will set a new Premier League record of going 18 home games without keeping a clean sheet.

Everton may still be without the injured Louis Saha, but they still have plenty of attacking talent in their ranks.

Leon Osman and Mikel Arteta will both be threats from midfield and could be overpriced in the first goalscorer betting market at 12/1 and 8/1 respectively.

West Brom will be hoping that Peter Odemwingie continues his rich vein of form in front of goal if they are to claim victory.

Odemwingie has scored in five successive Premier League games and is 5/1 to open the scoring against Everton, although he will have to make do without the creativity of injured trio Chris Brunt, Graham Dorrans and Jerome Thomas.

A £30 stake on Everton beating West Brom 1-0 would return £210. New customers can sign up here for a free £30 bet.
