The Monday night installment from the Premier League sees Everton entertain terrible travellers QPR, but then the Toffees have struggled to pick up points directly after Europa League commitments this season.
Nevertheless, home advantage is reflected in Everton’s 4/9 favouritism to inflict an eighth successive away league defeat on QPR, with the R’s given a 13/2 chance of the shock win and a draw weighing in at 10/3.
The latter of those three results forms the starting point for three recommended bets on the televised contest.
Everton to draw with QPR @ 10/3
Although QPR have the worst away record in the top flight, Everton have been unusually generous at Goodison Park this season where they’ve won only two of seven matches.
The top-four candidates of last season lie 13th before the R’s arrive and among the chief reasons for their Premier League struggles this term is their Europa League efforts.
Only once have Roberto Martinez’s men claimed three points after their previous five group matches in the competition, while Harry Redknapp’s gameplan without suspended top scorer Charlie Austin will surely be to stop the rot on the road with a draw.
QPR to score last @ 23/10
A massive problem in picking up points away from Loftus Road for QPR is their lack of early goals. The Londoners have not found the net once before half-time in seven games on the road.
However, seven of their last 10 goals have arrived in the last half an hour.
Coupled Correct Score 0-0 0r 1-1 @ 18/15
With the R’s only scoring twice away from home all season in the league, they’re unlikely to suddenly start hitting the net at will on Merseyside, especially robbed of top scorer Austin.
Meanwhile, goals have been at a premium for the hosts too. Everton have only found the net twice in their last four across all competitions, so the above scorelines stick out in the coupled correct score market.
