Everton hit the road for the third time in the FA Cup and are odds-on favourites to do what Liverpool couldn’t do in the last round – beat Oldham at Boundary Park.

The season’s draw hasn’t been overly kind to David Moyes’ side who take to the road for the third game on the trot but they go into the game with five away wins and two draws in their last seven away games in the competition.

The Toffees were 5-1 winners at Cheltenham Town and overcame Bolton Wanderers 2-1 in the last round and are 33/1 and 7/1 with Paddy Power to win by either of those scorelines on Saturday.

Everton scored the opening goal in both wins to date and are 3/10 to opening the scoring against League One side Oldham who shocked Liverpool 3-2 at Boundary Park in the fourth round.

Nikica Jelavic got the opening goal against Cheltenham in the 13 minute and the Croatian international is 4/1 to score first against Oldham.

Steven Pienaar – voted the club’s player of the month for January – set the Merseysiders up with an 18th-minute strike against Bolton and is 9/1 to score first again on Saturday night.

Everton are 8/5 to score the first goal up to and including minute 23 and 6/4 to score the first goal after that with Paddy Power who also make the visitors 8/11 to win the first half and 7/5 to score exactly one first-half goal.

League One side Oldham many be two divisions below Everton but David Moyes is taking nothing for granted and watched the club against MK Dons last weekend.

“You’ve always got to take one game at a time and that´s what we´ll try to do,” he said.

Paddy Power make Everton 5/6 on the handicap betting (-1) and 23/10 (-2) to overcome Oldham.

England international Leighton Baines scored from the spot against Cheltenham Town and Paddy Power bet 6/4 that a penalty will be awarded in Saturday’s game and 10/3 that Everton score a penalty.

Marouane Fellaini is the club’s top scorer in the Barclays Premier League with 10 goals and is a handful for any defence.

The Belgian international – on the mark for the Toffees’ fifth against Cheltenham Town in the third round – is 4/1 to be the last goalscorer of the game.

Everton supporters will have one eye on Wembley if their side overcome Oldham and Paddy Power make the Toffees 13/2 to win the tournament.
