Monday's Bet of the Day: Everton to prove too strong for Newcastle United

The Toffees have made a solid start to the season and Willie Duncan is backing them to bag another three points when they welcome Alan Pardew's side to Goodison Park
Everton slipped to their first defeat of the campaign before the international break when they were beaten by West Bromwich Albion, but David Moyes will be hoping that his side can get back to winning ways when they welcome Alan Pardew’s Newcastle United to Goodison Park on Monday night.

The Toffees defeated Manchester United in their only home Premier League match so far this season and Moyes’ side can be backed at 4/5 (1.80) with William Hill to pick up another three points here.

Alan Pardew’s side got their campaign off to the best possible start with a home victory over Tottenham, but were beaten by Chelsea before being held by Aston Villa and the Magpies can be backed at 19/5 (4.80) with William Hill to see off Moyes’ men on Monday. The same firm offer 12/5 (3.40) that the match ends in a draw.

William Hill are offering a couple of special “headline offers” on this match with the bookmaker offering 5/2 (3.50) on Nikica Jelavic to score at any time in an Everton win, while Magpies backers may be tempted by the 8/1 (9.0) for Papiss Cisse to score at any time in a win for Pardew’s side.

Croatian striker Jelavic is chalked up at 11/2 (6.50) with William Hill to score first for the Toffees while Belgian duo Kevin Mirallas and Marouane Fellaini can be backed at 7/1 (8.0) and 8/1 (9.0) respectively with the same firm to open the scoring.

Fellaini, in particular, has made a good start to the season with two goals so far and he looks to be outstanding value at William Hill’s chunky 8/1 (9.0) quote.

The Magpies, meanwhile, will turn to Senegalese pair Cisse and Demba Ba to score the goals and fire them to glory at Goodison Park and both men are available at 8/1 (9.0) with William Hill to break the deadlock, while the 11/1 (12.0) quote from the same firm for French star Hatem Ben Arfa to net the opener is sure to attract support.

The trip to Goodison, though, has rarely proved fruitful for the Magpies. They have won just once in their last nine visits to Merseyside and the 4/5 (1.80) on offer from William Hill for a home victory should be backed accordingly here.
