Bet of the day: Lethal Lukaku to score in Toffees triumph over Hammers
Robbie Purves | 30 October 2016
Coral’s bet of the day
- The Belgian has scored six in eight Premier League games this term
- Lukaku boasts a fantastic record against West Ham, scoring eight in previous 10 encounters
- Toffees are undefeated at home this season
Lukaku 2/1 to score in Toffees triumph
Since Ronald Koeman’s arrival on Merseyside, Romelu Lukaku has looked a man reborn, after seemingly being close to the exit door under Roberto Martinez.
Ronald’s revolution has seen the Merseyside club rise to sixth – with the help of their lethal Belgian. Which is why we’ve picked Lukaku odds to score and an Everton victory for our latest bet of the day.
Lukaku boasts a sensational record against his opponents today, West Ham United. The 23-year-old has netted eight in 10 outings against the east Londoners and is 2/1 (£/€20 max stake) with Coral to continue his fine run by scoring in a Toffees win.
However, it isn’t just the Hammers he has been prolific against. Lukaku has six in eight Premier League games this term, sitting joint second in the goalscoring charts.
Lukaku finding the net looks even more likely when you consider he has scored in each of his last six run outs against the Hammers.
Hammers hopeless against hitman
Slaven Bilic’s side possess one of the worst defensive records in the league, a stat that will have Lukaku lacing up his boots in excited anticipation of a goal fest.
The Hammers have conceded three or more on four occasions this campaign and have struggled on their travels – losing three of four road fixtures away from the turbulent Olympic Stadium.
Koeman’s Toffees meanwhile have remained resolute at Goodison Park, unbeaten in their previous four outings.
Combine this with the fact that Everton have only lost to the Hammers twice in 19 outings, and a win featuring a strike from Belgian talisman Lukaku looks likely.
