Everton v Fulham: Toffees to prevail as both find the net

| 26.04.2013

Although their hopes of claiming a top-four spot are now faint, Everton can further cement their top-six credentials with victory over Fulham at 1/2 here.

The mid-table Cottagers have little to play for, and winless in their last four, look unlikely to justify 6/1 odds to claim only a fourth away triumph of the campaign.

3/1 is available regarding the draw, and that outcome stemmed from the reverse fixture between the pair earlier this season.

However, the Toffees, beaten only once on their own patch this term, appear better value options to emerge victorious from a match in which both teams find the net.

Either side has bagged in four of their past five meetings opposing each other, and Everton prevailed in three of those bouts, so appeal at 12/5 to do so again here.

Also, with each of these last five encounters producing a minimum of three goals, and the Blues succeeding in four of them, total result markets certainly look investment-worthy.

13/10 is the price attributed to a home win involving at least 2.5 strikes, and such a bet would have gifted returns in 10 of David Moyes’ side’s 14 league victories this term.

Furthermore, nine of Fulham’s 14 top-flight defeats this term have seen the net bulge on three occasions or more, with 2-1 a regularly emanating scoreline from their losses.

Everton have most frequently won via the same result, achieving 2-1 successes on six occasions throughout the season, and a home triumph via that result is priced at 15/2 here.

And half markets may prove a useful tool for punters to utilise, in light of the hosts turning half-time leads into full-time victories over the Cottagers on three of the past five occasions the teams have crossed swords.

The Blues are 11/10 to lead at both whistles again in this match, and a tempting 9/4 to win each 45-minute period.

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
