Pick of the day #33: Everton – Oldham
Oldham have had a tough season in League 1 and currently sit 19th in the table, just over the relegation zone. In the FA Cup they have done tremendously well by elimination Liverpool and getting 2-2 at home to Everton. Tonight it is time for the replay and I strongly believe that Oldham will have to pay for Everton’s late defeat in their last game away to Norwich. I back Everton with a Asian handicap -2 bet.
After the line ups have been released the prices for Everton have gone up (Fellaini is not in the team), but I think they have a very strong side on the pitch and they should win this easily under normal circumstances. Oldham will be very satisfied with their FA Cup-season anyway and I think that they will not commit themselves as much as in their recent FA Cup-games.
I am aware of Oldham’s good form in the league lately, but there is a massive difference in quality between Everton and e.g. Portsmouth.
Line up Everton:
Howard, Neville, Baines, Gibson, Jagielka, Jelavic, Mirallas, Distin, Osman, Pienaar, Coleman
Line up Oldham:
Bouzanis, Brown, Grounds, M’Voto, Tarkowski, Croft, Furman, Iwelumo, Obita, Barnard, Baxter
