888sport has a great welcome offer for new customers giving treble odds on their first bet placed, which is ideal for this Saturday’s Premier League clash between Everton and Chelsea.
Everton have had a mixed start to the 2015/16 season, with an opening day 2-2 draw to newly promoted Watford followed by a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Southampton.
With a further point picked up against Tottenham last time out - after a 0-2 defeat to current league leaders Manchester City - Roberto Martinez’s side sit in ninth place in the table ahead of the visit of the defending Premier League champions.
Chelsea dominated their way to the Premier League title last season, but the Stamford Bridge outfit have looked a shadow of their former selves so far in the defence of their trophy.
Currently one point behind Everton, Jose Mourinho’s men also drew 2-2 in their first game - at home to Swansea - but capitulated to a 0-3 defeat to Man City, before they finally claimed their first win of the season with a battling 3-2 win over West Brom.
After looking like normal service had resumed, Chelsea then went down 1-2 to Crystal Palace at home in the last round of fixtures, leaving The Special One to stew over a second defeat in four games during the recent International break.
Chelsea fans will desperately be hoping that their heroes can repeat the performance of their last visit to Goodison Park just over a year ago - as Mourinho’s men romped to a 6-3 win at the end of August. However, that win was only their second in their last five Premier League trips to the blue side of Merseyside - as the Toffees have claimed the spoils in each of the other three.
Meanwhile, Everton have not suffered back-to-back home defeats to Chelsea since 2007 and 2008, with the London club also triumphing at Goodison Park in a League Cup semi-final in January 2008 as well.
Everton can also take confidence from the 37 wins in 81 home meetings in all competitions with Chelsea, who have won just 19 and been held to a draw 25 times. The Toffees can also boast a 1.99 average goals per game against Chelsea, whose average is some way back at 1.3 goals per game.
Everton to win is 13/4 on 888sport, but the bookmaker is enhancing those odds to around 10/1 with treble odds (10.75 to be exact.) A Chelsea win in Merseyside is boosted to 13/5 from the normal odds of 87/100, while the draw will pay better at 15/2 when the price is tripled.
Open an account with 888sport and you will get treble odds on your first bet, up to £10 maximum stake.
You’d be crazy to let the offer pass if you don’t have an account with 888sport and the great thing about this treble odds offer is that all the winnings will be paid in cash, which means it can be withdrawn straight away and there is no obligation to make another bet with the extra winnings like some other enhanced odds offers.
The offer applies to any sport and 888sport has an extensive choice with thousands of markets on over 20 different sports. However, it’s this Premier League clash that will create most interest this Saturday lunchtime - as the two sides play out the opening match of what is sure to be another action-packed weekend of English top-flight action.
