Betting Tip: Everton @ 29/20 with bet365

It’s not always easy backing Everton at these sort of prices. Coral dangle a carrot of 31/20 about a Toffees win in east Anglia although punters would have assumed they were home and hosed a fortnight ago before Bournemouth rallied to earn a point.

The Toffees were also sent off favourites at home to Crystal Palace on Monday although Romelu Lukaku’s goal could only rescue a point after some solid defending from the Eagles had almost led to a perfect smash and grab raid.

So why are we siding with Everton? It’s partly down to the fact that they are clearly creating chances and have one of the best strikers in the Premier League. Romelu Lukaku has scored in his past six matches and is borderline unplayable at the moment.

Gerard Deulofeu is also tormenting a string of right-backs and can help turn games in favour of the Merseyside team, with Ross Barkley also in excellent form and it’s hard to see Norwich denying their opponents.

We like Alex Neil although it’s been heavy weather for the Canaries since the beginning of the season and they’re likely to be in a relegation scrap this term.

There has been just one win in the previous ten matches, with Crystal Palace, Leicester and West Brom all leaving Carrow Road with the points this season.

Norwich will look to defend solidly and did earn a point at home to Arsenal recently, although the conditions were poor which lent them an advantage against a Gunners team for whom Alexis Sanchez sustained an injury.

The Canaries have managed just two goals in their past four games and it’s the lack of firepower which could let them down in matches such as this one.
