Everton v Newcastle

Tickets are now on sale.

Everton welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Merseyside on Sunday looking to inflict a fourth straight Goodison Park defeat on the Londoners.

What's more, the Blues haven't suffered a home loss against their forthcoming opponents since February 2007.

Given that sort of form, Roberto Martinez's men are surprisingly priced at 6/4 to walk away victorious against Andre Villas-Boas' Spurs, a side just a point and two places above them in the Barclays Premier League table.

But where else can the betting value be found this weekend? Here we assess the best odds our partner Paddy Power has to offer...

Rom To Roar Again

The loan signing of Romelu Lukaku has proved something of a masterstroke from Roberto Martinez and last weekend the big Belgian notched his fifth goal in just five Premier League outings to fire the Toffees on their way to a 2-0 win at Aston Villa. This weekend, the 20-year-old is 17/10 to score any time against Spurs or a tempting 11/2 to bag the game's all-important opening goal.

Net Gains

In six of the last eight meetings between Everton and Spurs, both sides have got themselves on the scoresheet. Spurs have been a little goal-shy compared to their other top-six rivals so far this term, netting only nine in the league in nine games. If you fancy Everton to notch but the visitors to also keep up their goal-a-game record, you can get both teams to score at 4/6 with Paddy Power. For those who can see an Everton win to nil, 10/3 is a price that will likely catch the eye.

Bend It Like Baines

Remember Leighton Baines' stunning free-kick at White Hart Lane in October 2010? Well, it's the left-back's only Everton career goal against Spurs to date - though he did also notch one for Wigan in a 3-3 draw with Spurs back in April 2007. Perhaps he's overdue? If you fancy the penalty-taking England man to register on Sunday, you can get him at 16/1 to be the first scorer or 6/1 to net at any time.

Hold On To Your Hats

Anyone present at the last Goodison Park meeting between Everton and Tottenham is unlikely to forget what was a remarkable injury-time comeback. Trailing 1-0 as the clock hit 90, first Steven Pienaar equalised with a rare and priceless header. Then, as the home crowd roared their men forward, Nikica Jelavic stabbed past Hugo Lloris to spark wild scenes of celebration. If nostalgia gets the better of you, the Toffees to repeat that 2-1 scoreline - whether in such dramatic fashion or not - can be bet on this weekend at 8/1.
