Sunderland v Everton FA Cup Betting Odds
Sunderland to win: 6/4 at Bet Victor
Draw: 23/10 at Boylesports
Everton to win: 21/20 at Stan James

The two played out a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park a couple of weekends ago, and Everton really missed the chance to secure the win. Both teams won on the weekend, with Everton picking up an impressive win away at Swansea, where many of the top teams have gone and failed. So that was a big boost for the Toffees, which saw them end a two match losing streak. So they got themselves back on track and they head to the Stadium of Light with a pretty good away record against Sunderland. David Moyes’ men haven’t lost on their last seven visits there, winning four and drawing three. So that is an impressive stat to weigh up for your betting options. All three of their last visits have produced the draws and if that happens again after ninety minutes, then you will expect it to be a 1-1 draw really, because Everton scoring more than two in a match, is a bit of a rarity. They just don’t’ have the fire-power to regularly produce goals, so their triumphs come through hard work, keeping things tight and opportunist moments. The Toffees have only won one of their last six Premier League away matches, and they produced a 1-1 draw at the Stadium of Light earlier in the season. There were chances for Everton at Goodison Park to have wrapped this up already.
The Black Cats will be stronger at home though than they were at Goodison Park, because Martin O’Neill has made Sunderland a tough side to beat at the Stadium of Light. They took out QPR comfortably on the weekend in the Premier League, which means that they have won five of their last six matches there. So a strong record which cannot be ignored for your Sunderland v Everton FA Cup betting. Like Everton, Sunderland are not an explosive goal scoring side, but they are very efficient and they have conceded less than a goal per game on average at home this season, while averaging 1.6 goals per game going forward. The thing against them here, is that for some reason they have struggled to beat Everton at home. That is probably because they are matched evenly in terms of being industrious and tight instead of having more of an influence on games going forward. Still, there is the feeling that Everton missed a golden opportunity at Goodison Park to win this one, and advantage has probably swung back into Sunderland’s court to set up a semi final clash against Liverpool, who awaits the winner.
