Few would have believed that, after more than half of the season, David Moyes's Manchester United side would be lower in the Premier League than the team whom he left behind when he chose to replace Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford, but that is exactly the situation that new Everton boss Roberto Martinez has engineered this season.
The former Wigan and Swansea City manager has overseen several new additions and the continued development of several academy products, all of which, combined with the solid spine that Moyes left behind, has seen his side average almost two points per game in the campaign so far.
On Monday the Toffees make the trip to the West Midlands to face Pepe Mel's side as the Spaniard takes charge of his first game at West Brom and Betway are offering a massive 3/1 (4.0) on Martinez's men for new customers. This is an exclusive offer for Goal readers at a price enhanced from 5/4 (2.25) and is open to anyone without a Betway account.
There is often a new-manager 'bounce' expected by punters but this game looks a tough test for the former Real Betis boss. His side have tasted victory in only three of their 11 Premier League home games so far and two of those wins came over the current bottom two, Sunderland and Crystal Palace.
Everton, on the other hand, have been particularly handy on the road, with three wins and three draws in their last six Premier League games away from Goodison Park. Those results included a win over Manchester United and a 1-1 draw with Arsenal so the visitors have little to fear and look capable of continuing their challenge for a top-four spot.
Although Romelu Lukaku has scored nine goals this season, the Belgium international - who is 11/10 (2.10) to score anytime - is far from alone in the goalscoring charts. Kevin Mirallas (2/1), Seamus Coleman (6/1) and Gareth Barry (13/2) have all contributed of late.
West Brom's sale of Shane Long could increase the need for Nicolas Anelka and Saido Berahino to fire on a regular basis while Matej Vydra could get more time on the field in the coming months. The Czech Republic international is 11/4 (3.75) to find the net at anytime with Betway.
Industry-best quotes of 13/10 (2.30) for Everton to get the better of the Baggies on Monday look more than fair so punters who can avail themselves of Betway's offer have a great opportunity to land a sizably priced winner.
