Bet On The Blues

by Matthew Gamble @efc_mattgamble

Everton head to Manchester United tonight with manager Roberto Martinez insisting his side will go there to express themselves.

The Blues will face former manager David Moyes at Old Trafford, with the Scot adjusting to life in his new role.

The match provides a number of sub-plots and, happily, plenty of betting opportunites

The Blues may not have won at Old Trafford since the first season of the Premier League over 20 years ago, but their current form under new boss Martinez has given Evertonians real optimisim.

Paddy Power rate Everton as a 4/1 chance to end the depressing sequence with victory.

Other options include 11/4 the draw and 5/2 on the Draw No Bet - where you win if Everton win and you get your money back if the game ends in a draw.

Narrow margins

This season's form guide would suggest that an Everton win would be a narrow one, and the Blues are a tasty 14/1 chance to win 2-1 - the same price as a 1-0 Everton triumph.

It could be worth taking Everton to win by exactly one goal at 11/2 to cover a variety of permutations.

Lightning strikes

Two seasons ago the fixture produced one of the Premier League era's most dramatic matches as Everton fought back to draw 4-4 and cost United the title.

It's a massive 300/1 we get a repeat of that this time around.

Everton have had four 0-0 draws already this term and it's 10/1 for a 0-0 stalemate on Wednesday.

Man of the moment

The man of the season so far has been Romelu Lukaku, with the powerful hitman having already plundered eight goals.

Lukaku is 7/1 be the first goalscorer on Wednesday and 21/10 to score at anytime in the match.

While on loan at West Brom last season he bagged a hat-trick against the Red Devils in a 5-5 draw.

He's 80/1 to bag another hat-trick against United and such is his imposing form, that's not entirely out of the question!
