Everton play host to relegation threatened Sunderland in a hugely important Premier League clash on Saturday 9th May, find out how the football betting offers at William Hill can benefit your Everton v Sunderland bets.

Everton had their six-game unbeaten run ended by a struggling side in Aston Villa last time out and will be hoping to do better against another side scrapping for survival back in front of their own fans at Goodison Park.

The Toffees are seeking a fifth consecutive home victory and could be difficult for the visitors to wear down, having not conceeded in each of their last four on Merseyside.

Sunderland boosted their chances of beating the drop with a 2-1 win over Southampton at the Stadium of Light last weekend to bring them to within one point of safety, notwithstanding goal difference.

However, whether the Black Cats can carry that form with them on the road is anyone's guess - as the Wearsiders have won just twice away from home in this campaign, though a 0-1 success in this fixture last season may give them some confidence.

Saturday's match will be shown live on BT Sport 1 at 12.45 and will be eagerly watched by both casual and professional gamblers looking to make a profit on what should be a thrilling encounter.

One way that you can increase your chances of winning long term is to take advantage of the free bet offers available at William Hill, to add a level of protection to your Everton v Sunderland bets.

Bore Draw Insurance

These sides played a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture and it may be hard to separate them once again, particularly with the away side hoping to scrap for anything they can get out of the game.

There have been under 2.5 goals scored in nine of Sunderland's last 11 away games in the Premier League and they have contributed to an incredible seven 0-0 draws in the Premier League this term.

Considering that Everton have given little away at home of late, there is a case for this game ending without any goals and if Everton v Sunderland does finish 0-0 and ruin your bet, William Hill will refund all losing Correct Score and Double Result (HT/FT) bets on the match as a Free Bet equal to your stake, capped at a maximum of £50.

Goalscorer 2nd Chance

Romelu Lukaku was back in the goalscoring groove last weekend, albeit from the penalty spot. Nevertheless, the imposing Belgian will have taken confidence from hitting the back of the net and can move on to double figures for the season against Sunderland, so will have popped back up on the radar for many a First Goalscorer punter.

Those looking for a bigger price will likely be drawn to Kevin Mirallas who has notched twice in the past three matches, while Aaron Lennon has contributed a few goals during his loan spell and if you're fancying a defender to get in on the action, then Phil Jagielka could be the call with two goals in his last five appearances.

For the visitors, Jordi Gomez doubled his tally for the season when dispatching two penalties last weekend and is very much the in-vogue pick for Sunderland fans, but it's Connor Wickham who makes the most appeal - having notched twice in the last 3 games.

Seb Larsson doesn't score as many as he used to, but did get the opener when these sides last met, while Jermain Defoe is likely to test the keeper at least once and can be backed at a juicy price.

Whoever you plump for in the First Goalscorer market, use William Hill for the added protection of a free bet refund, should your losing selection then go on to score the second goal of the game. Goalscorer 2nd Chance entitles qualifying customers to a free bet refund of up to £50.
