Everton to adopt old strategy in claiming home win over West Brom

| 30.01.2013

If two things are true of both Everton and West Brom it is that they tend to score and concede in the majority of their games and this has played a helping hand for our best bet when the pair clash at Goodison Park.

Everton may have been involved in successive Premier League 0-0 draws, but before this both teams had been on target in 16 consecutive games involving David Moyes’ team.

This has also occurred in five of West Brom’s last six, with the one blip being in a defeat at Old Trafford.

Furthermore, West Brom are still waiting for their first away clean sheet of the campaign.

Even despite Everton’s latest streak of goalless draws, it is hard not to forecast both teams finding the target in this one at 8/11.

However, in a bid to enhance profits, it may pay to push the boat out and take the 12/5 that both teams score in an Everton victory.

This bet is slightly risky given that Everton have won less than half of their home games and draws have been fairly common against teams around the mid-table zone, including Liverpool, Swansea and Norwich.

The draw may prove popular with some punters again at 11/4, but only once in 13 Premier League meetings between this pair have the points been shared.

But with the Baggies losing three of their last four and six of their last 10, Everton appear the most likely to land the spoils.

Everton’s price for a home win also looks fairly attractive at 8/13, while West Brom may be a tad on the short side at 9/2 given not only their recent form, but also the fact that only Chelsea have won at Goodison Park this season.
