Betting Preview: Swansea
A host of odds for Saturday's away game thanks to Paddy Power.
It’s an early start for Everton on Saturday when they take on Swansea at the Liberty Stadium at 12.45pm live on Sky Sports 2.
The Toffees will want to move on from the frustration of Monday's 2-2 draw against Newcastle when they were denied two perfectly legitimate goals and all three points at Goodison Park.
It was another impressive attacking display by David Moyes’ side and the Toffees are 8/5 in Paddy Power’s online betting to take all three points at Swansea, with the home side trading at 17/10 and the draw chalked up at 9/4.
Last season Everton won 2-0 at the Liberty Stadium when Monday night’s opening goalscorer Leighton Baines got the Toffees up and running in the 59th minute before Nikica Jelavic made the points safe.
A repeat of that same scoreline on Saturday is trading at 11/1 while Leighton Baines to score at any time and Everton to win 2-0 is 15/2 in Paddy Power’s Wincast betting.
For the teams to be drawing 0-0 at half-time and Everton to win 2-0 is 30/1 in the Half Time – Full Time correct score market while Everton to win to without conceding is 16/5 in Paddy Power’s online betting.
Nigeria’s Victor Anichebe stepped in to replace the injured Jelavic during the game against the Magpies and showed his threat by scoring one goal and having another disallowed. Anichebe trades at 17/2 to score first for Everton if he gets the nod on Saturday.
The Toffees are unbeaten in 15 games against the Swans in all competitions with 11 wins and four draws, but the sides only renewed acquaintances last season after a gap of 28 years following Swansea’s promotion to the Premier League under Brendan Rodgers.
The Goodison Park clash last term saw Leon Osman score the only goal of the game and the midfield man is 12/1 to score first or 9/2 to hit the net at anytime during the 90 minutes.
