Premier League betting: Everton v Newcastle

Sep 29, 2013 |
This week's fixtures in the Barclays Premier League conclude with Newcastle United traveling to face Everton. If the Toffees can snatch the three home points, it would put the club in sole possession of fourth place in the table.

We talked to Aron Black of Bet365 about the action on this match.

Everton v Newcastle (-150, +280, +500)

Why bet Everton: If you were asked "who is the only club in the league to not lose a game yet this season", you probably wouldn't guess the Toffees. Yet here we are. Roberto Martinez has made a pretty nice transition to the blue half of Liverpool with two wins, three draws and zero losses. The club is progressively getting stronger as they opened the campaign with three draws and have posted back-to-back wins at home to Chelsea and away to West Ham.

Key players out/doubtful:

Why bet Newcastle: The Magpies are one of the more inconsistent sides in the league, but when they are on, they can play. When they are off, however, it can be atrocious. The club had a nice spell with a draw against West Ham and victories over Fulham and Aston Villa, before losing to a spirited Hull side one week ago. The matchuup between Newcastle winger Hatem Ben Arfa and Everton defender Leighton Baines should be a great one.

Key players out/doubtful: Ryan Taylor, Steven Taylor

2012-13 fixture result:
Everton 2, Newcastle 2

Key betting note:
Everton has won seven of their previous eight home games in the league.

Where the action is: "The action so far for this one has seen more take on the visitors which is somewhat surprising, however at the price, obviously many feel that Newcaastle are value. Everton see the usual home support for a team at their price, with the draw also getting action. The total goals market is split down the middle with pretty much the same action on over 2.5 goals at -118 and under at -105. Romelu Lukakau sees support as the market fave in the First Goalscorer market at +400, as well as To Score at Anytime at +110."
