Selected odds from our betting partner, Paddy Power.
Everton face Oldham Athletic at Boundary Park on Saturday evening and are 1/3 favourites with Paddy Power to advance through to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
The season’s draw hasn’t been overly kind to David Moyes’ side who take to the road for the third game in succession. However, they go into the game with five wins and two draws in their last seven away games in the competition.
