Man City vs Everton – Toffees will give City a hammer blow

| 20.12.2010

Weather permitting, Monday night’s televised game between Manchester City and Everton will finally allow punters some much needed Premier League betting opportunities.

All eyes will be on Carlos Tevez in his first game since demanding a transfer, and it seems Roberto Mancini will strip the club’s talisman of the captaincy and hand it back to Kolo Toure.

Match Odds

Manchester City may be the odds on 8/11 favourites to beat Everton but four of the last five games between the two sides have ended as away wins and Everton are on a three-match winning streak at Eastlands.

Everton seem a huge price at 4/1 but David Moyes’s side are winless in their last seven games, drawing five of those and a draw seems on the cards on Monday night and is priced at 5/2.

Total Goals

Tevez, with 31 goals in his last 38 appearances, is obviously the man to watch on Monday, but punters would be better off watching the striker’s demeanor before backing the Argentine at 4/5 to score at any time.

History is also against Tevez, in Everton’s last five wins against Man City both home and away, Man City have failed to score against the Toffees, and considering Man City have failed to score in three of their last four Premier League games, fans at Eastlands could be in for a slow night.

A 0-0 draw is priced at 9/1 while a 1-0 Everton win is priced at 10/1 and punters should cash in on the under 2.5 goals betting odds of 8/11 considering Man City have score just eight goals at home this season, and Everton just eight goals away.

But should Tevez make the headlines for the right reasons, you can get 18/1 that Tevez scores first and his side win 1-0.

A £10 stake on a 1-1 result would return £65. New customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
