Wigan are 11/4 in Paddy Power’s online betting, with the Toffees favourites at 21/10. The draw is 9/4.
The last two fixtures at the DW Stadium have ended 1-1, with Everton having to come from a goal down to share the points on both occasions.
Paddy Power make it 13/2 that history will repeat itself and we’ll see another 1-1 draw, while they offer 4/6 that both sides hit the net in the ‘Both Teams to Score’ market.
Everton and the draw is 2/9 in the double chance section, while under 2.5 goals is trading at 4/5 with the online bookmaker.
Last term a Victor Anichebe strike in the 83rd minute cancelled out Phil Neville’s own goal, while a 78th-minute Leighton Baines penalty rescued a point for the visitors the season before.
Anichebe’s strength and power make him a lively goal threat and with Everton boasting some impressive early-season form, he’s 15/2 to open the scoring against the Latics.
The Nigerian international is the most used substitute in Everton’s history and odds of 5/2 for him to get on the scoresheet at any time are also appealing given he’s competing with Nikica Jelavic for a starting berth.
Leighton Baines has just been voted Everton’s Player of the Month for September and the England international’s attacking prowess has helped the Blues’ goal run in recent weeks.
The left-back, who along with Anichebe scored in the controversial 2-2 draw against Newcastle last month, is 16/1 to score the game’s first goal, 6/1 to score at any time and 11/1 to be Everton’s first goalscorer.
With Baines scoring from the spot against his former employers in the 2010/11 season, Paddy Power is offering 2/1 that a penalty is awarded during the game, 11/4 that it will be scored and 5/1 that Everton convert it.
The first goal to be an own goal is 22/1 with Paddy Power, while an any time own goal is available at 8/1.
Given that late goals have been a feature in recent clashes between the two sides, Everton to score their first goal after 28 minutes is 23/10, while it’s 10/11 that the last goal comes after 73 minutes.
If the Toffees have to fight back from a goal down as they did last time out at the DW, it’s 6/1 they do so and draw and 9/1 they do so and complete the win.
