Jelavic favoured to outscore Everton predecessor Saha

NEW EVERTON striker Nikica Jelavic could trigger a glut of goals for Everton, according to Ladbrokes.

The bookies make the former Rangers hotshot odds-on (8/13) to win a Premier League goals match bet with Louis Saha (6/5) who has left the club for Tottenham.

Everton are now also 5/4 to score four or more goals in a single Premier League fixture for the remainder of the season while Jelavic is the 6/1 favourite to score the first goal of the game against Wigan on Saturday.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “We think Moyes’ exchange of strikers will be the solution for Everton’s goal drought. Jelavic will certainly have his backers as he bids to get off the mark this weekend.”
