Have you already played through your free titan poker bonus and want to look towards the world of football for a chance to make money? Well, look no further, as we take a look at some of the latest news from the football betting world.

Everton’s recent run of disappointing league form has seen them left to battle for Europa League qualification after slipping out of contention for a top four spot but there is light at the end of the tunnel for their fans in the shape of Kevin Mirallas.

Mirallas arrived at Goodison Park in August 2012 following a £6million move from Olympiakos and hopes were high among sports betting fans for the forward who had bagged 20 goals and finished as top scorer in the Greek league the previous season. Unfortunately for manager David Moyes, Mirallas has yet to live up to the hype and has been plagued by injury, including a particularly troublesome hamstring niggle, since his arrival.

Mirallas featured just once for Everton between November 10th and January 21st but he is now available once again and, after playing some part in each of the Toffees last seven games, he looks to be back to his best. Nothing epitomises the value of Mirallas to Everton more than his man of the match display against Oldham, as Moyes’ men advanced to the FA Cup Quarter Final after a bruising replay at Goodison Park. Mirallas looked unplayable at times as he mesmerised the Oldham defence with his quick feet and insightful passing as well as sneaking through the offside trap to open the scoring.

After Nikica Jelavic’s loss of goal scoring form and Marouane Fellaini’s recent dry spell Everton desperately need to find some potency from somewhere. In 25-year old Mirallas they have a man with the potential to solve their goal scoring problems and, if he can stay fit, then the Belgium international could be the difference between European qualification for Everton and another season of mid-table mediocrity.

So, if you’ll be betting on the football this weekend our tip would be to back Everton to beat Reading at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon, with Kevin Mirallas to get on the score-sheet.
