Everton v Oldham Odds: Latics a long shot to stun the Toffees
Everton and Oldham meet at Goodison Park on Tuesday night in an FA Cup fifth round replay. The teams played out an entertaining 2-2 draw at Boundary Park, with Matt Smith scoring a dramatic last-gasp equaliser to force the replay. The winner of the tie will go on to face Wigan at home in the quarter finals.
Premier League side Everton are on a quest to land their first trophy since lifting the FA Cup back in 1995. The Merseyside club are currently enjoying a successful season in the Premier League although their bid for a top four finish took a hit at the weekend after they lost to Norwich. With just six minutes left on the clock they were a goal up but two late strikers robbed them of the win as they dropped seven points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
David Moyes’ men now have the chance to bounce back from the defeat and have been installed as the very short 1/6 favourites with Paddy Power to win tonight. Meanwhile managerless Oldham are a long shot at 14/1, with a draw priced at 13/2.
The Latics are gunning to conjure up another shock upset after heroically dispatching of Liverpool in the previous round. They went on to hold Everton to an enthralling draw in their last-16 clash 10 days ago but the odds are stacked against them to go on and win the replay.
If Everton can get off to an early start then they could easily run away with it. A 3-0 home victory is priced at 13/2, while the hosts can be backed at 17/10 to score four or more goals in the match. They predictably dominate the first goalscorer market, with Victor Anichebe, Marouane Fellaini, Nikica Jelavic all handed odds of 3/1. However, the in-form Leighton Baines is definitely worth considering at 12/1, while the defender is 10/3 to score anytime in the latest betting with Paddy Power Bookmakers..
Oldham will be looking to star striker Matt Smith to once again deliver on the big stage. Smith has scored against both Liverpool and Everton and can be found at 12/1 to open the scoring at Goodison and 16/5 to find the back of the net at any point in the match.
The League One side could be worth a punt at 13/2 to take the game into extra-time and 17/2 to progress through to the next round. Meanwhile they are available at 35/1 to win a penalty shootout, with Everton at 25/1 to finish victorious via spot kicks.
