Saturday's Bet of the Day: Swans are good value to see off the Toffees
Both sides have made a solid start to the season and this looks likely to be an intriguing clash - Willie Duncan is backing Michael Laudrup's men to make home advantage countSwansea City’s unbeaten start to the season was brought to a halt last weekend when the Swans crashed to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Aston Villa, but Saturday's hosts will be targeting all three points when they face Everton.
Swansea have taken four points from their first two home games of the campaign, having defeated West Ham United 3-0 in their league opener, before being held in a thrilling 2-2 draw with Sunderland and Michael Laudrup’s side are chalked up at 2/1 (3.0) with Bet365 this weekend.
Everton were held to a frustrating 2-2 draw with Newcastle United on Monday night and Moyes’ men will be keen to erase the memory of that disappointment on their trip to the Liberty Stadium.
That is a prospect which is rated as a 7/5 (2.40) chance with Bet365. The same firm offers 23/10 (3.30) that the match ends in a draw.
Belgian star Kevin Mirallas was impressive throughout his first Premier League start against Newcastle on Monday and he can be backed at 13/2 (7.50) with Bet365 to open his Premier League account with the first goal of the game here, while Steven Pienaar can be backed at a chunky 14/1 (15.0) with Bet365 to break the deadlock.
Danny Graham is again likely to lead the line for Laudrup’s side and Graham, who scored 14 goals in 39 appearances for the Swans last term, is chalked up at 13/2 (7.50) with Bet365 to notch first.
In-form Spanish midfielder Michu, who has made a stunning start to his Swansea career with four goals in four games, is available at a hugely tempting 15/2 (8.50) with the same firm to bag the first goal against the Toffees.
Everton can be trusted to keep things tight and the 11/10 (2.10) quote from Bet365 for the match to be level at half-time is decent value here.
Swansea, though, were beaten just four times on home turf in the Premier League last term and should the Swans replicate that kind of form again this weekend, there is no doubt that they will be the value pick at Bet365's 2/1 (3.0) to pick up another three points.

||Michu to score first at 15/2 (8.50) with Bet365
