Bolton will look to claim another Premier League scalp when they take on Everton in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday afternoon. The Trotters stunned Sunderland 2-0 in a third round replay in the previous round and they go into this weekend's game at the Reebok Stadium full of confidence following a four-match unbeaten run.
Dougie Freedman's side can be backed to win the match at 4/1 currently, although it is Everton who hold favouritism at 4/6, with the draw coming in at a tempting 14/5 with PaddyPower. The draw looks a decent bet at this stage, particularly as Bolton haven't lost to Everton in the FA cup since 1908.
Everton have been the victims of a fair few cup shocks over the years as they lost to Shrewsbury in 2003 before getting knocked out by Oldham in 2008, while they were knocked out of the Capital One Cup by Leeds earlier this season. The Premier League side have been draw specialists so far this term as 11 of their league games have ended in stalemates.
David Moyes' side have only lost one of their last 12 during a run that has seen them rise to fifth in the top-flight table, although draws are a common theme once again as six of those have ended in draws. They have hit the buffers in recent matches though as they have endured successive goalless draws with Swansea and Southampton.
Those two matches ended a run of 18 matches where both teams had scored in Everton games, although both teams to score is 8/11 odds on this weekend. Nikica Jelavic could do with rediscovering his scoring form and he is 9/2 favourite to be first scorer in the latest betting with PaddyPower, although Victor Anichebe looks tempting at 6/1 and he is likely to be given a chance to impress Moyes.
Bolton have actually tightened up defensively in recent games as they have kept two successive clean sheets during a four-match unbeaten run. They are now 16th in the Championship table and it bodes well that they have only lost three of 15 games at the Reebok this season, including an impressive win over league leaders Cardiff.
Chris Eagles has been a key man during their upturn in form as he has scored seven league goals this term and he is a juicy 12/1 to be first goalscorer. Bolton have shown they are capable of mixing it with Premiership opposition by beating Sunderland in the last round and they will have happy memories of playing Everton as they won 2-1 at Goodison Park last season - although Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard did score in that game!
They look capable of maintaining their decent run of form at the Reebok Stadium this weekend and it's interesting to note that there have been seven penalties scored in Bolton's last eight games. A penalty to be scored on Saturday can be backed at 13/5 with PaddyPower and that could be worth a look.
