The Betpal Football Bet of the Day is in the Premier League clash between Newcastle and Everton. David Moyes is again exceeding expectations with his team, will they continue their form at the expense of the Magpies?
Match: Newcastle United v Everton
Bet of the Day: Back Newcastle
Best Odds: 3.25 with Stan James
Kick Off: 20:00 02/01/2013 (GMT)
After a couple of thrashings on the road, Newcastle are now also being written off at home, at least as far as the layers are concerned. Defeats at Manchester United and Arsenal, while clearly damaging, are far from terminal – and the Magpies home record remains very good. Five wins from their ten League fixtures is a decent return, including wins over Tottenham and West Brom. Odds of 3.25 on the home win offer a few ticks of value, particularly with Everton suffering a few injuries. Whether Demba Ba is still around to take part in this game remains to be seen, but even so, the Toffees arrive without Darren Gibson, Seamus Coleman, Kevin Mirallas and Tony Hibbert – plus Phil Neville being nursed back from an operation. Newcastle are back among the goals of late, while Everton have failed to keep a clean sheet since September. It looks a closer match than the odds suggest – the Blues have only won three of their ten away games (drawing five), so a lay at around 2.3 is of note, but it is the price on a home win which offers the biggest edge.
