Leighton Baines has scored penalties in two of Everton’s last four games against Wigan, making him a good bet to score again when the teams meet today.
The Liverpool-born full-back is 14/1 to grab the first or last goal of the game and 4/1 to score at any time.
Baines’ dead-ball potency, alongside his danger from open play, is surely something that visiting manager Roberto Martinez is wary of ahead of kick-off.
For the Latics, last season’s top scorer at the DW was Colombian forward Hugo Rodallega and he is an obvious threat to David Moyes’ hopes of keeping a clean sheet.
He was rested in Wigan’s midweek Carling Cup exit to Championship side Crystal Palace, alongside some other big names.
But his return will not be relished by the hosts and his price of 7/1 to net the opener is one for the shrewd punters. He is also 2/1 to score at any time.
Another option for the home side is a player relatively unknown outside of Goodison Park – Apostolos Vellios.
The powerful Greek youngster was extremely close to a first start in blue in last week’s 2-2 draw against Aston Villa.
And if he is chosen to lead the line against Wigan, 13/2 is a nice fraction on him scoring the opener!
A successful £25 free bet on Vellios to score first would return £187.50.
And if you choose to use that on the selection of Leighton Baines scoring first, you will net a cool £375!
