Saturday sees the Toffees travel to Broadhall Way facing League One's bottom club, with our tipster backing Roberto Martinez's men to ease homeStevenage welcome Everton in the fourth round of the FA Cup looking to cause a major upset. Graham Westley's side are used to springing surprises in this competition, beating Newcastle in 2011, before drawing with Tottenham a year later.
Everton will be keen to avoid a shock, with coach Roberto Martinez looking to defend the trophy he won with Wigan Athletic last season. The Toffees took care of QPR in the last round, winning 4-0 at Goodison Park.
With only one defeat in their last 15 games, Everton come into this match in fine form and it's no surprise they are 3/10 (1.33) with Paddy Power to win the match.
Stevenage are really struggling this season in League One. The Boro have only won twice in their last nine matches and sit at the bottom of League One. Westley's side were beaten by fellow relegation rivals Notts County last time out 1-0 and will come into this fixture low in confidence. Paddy Power price them at 8/1 (9.00) to win. The same firm price the draw at 9/2 (5.50).
With Everton too short to back outright and to score two or more goals, it's worth looking at the handicap market to find a bet that stands out. The Toffees to win -1 handicap at 5/6 (1.83) looks a solid bet with Paddy Power.
In their last five victories in the FA Cup, this bet would have paid out in four of those games as well as comfortably against QPR. With Stevenage struggling for any form, expect Everton to steamroller the hosts.
