Everton v Crystal Palace Betting Odds*
Crystal Palace 10/3

Everton News and Form
For the first time this season Everton have landed back to back wins, with successes over Fulham and Leicester before the international break. They get back to home soil this weekend where they have a W2 D1 L1 record, the loss there happening in a dreadful performance against West Ham back in the middle of September.
But they recovered well in their next home game to smash Fulham. Everton have scored at least two goals in five of their eight league games now, so things are starting to come together. Gylfi Sigurdsson has been a big part of that with three goals in his last two games. Richarlison was also back on the scoresheet last time out in their win at Leicester.
Everton have conceded in their last five home games against the Eagles in the top flight, but we are going against that and backing both teams NOT to score at 19/20 odds* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018) because of how poor Palace have been in front of goal.
Everton are four points better off than they were at this stage of last season’s campaign so they have made a step forward. Three of Everton’s four home games this season have ended over 2.5 goals, but again banking on the visitors not doing much, under the goal line could be the way to swing.
Crystal Palace News and Form
Palace are looking poor this season and with the goals not coming from Wilfried Zaha then there could be big trouble ahead for them. They have lost five of their last seven played now, picking up the four points in that sequence. Their two away wins which they have posted this season did happen away from home and were clean sheet victories too.
That was against Huddersfield and Fulham, two of the current bottom four in the league. Palace have failed to score in four of their eight games this season. Everton to win to nil is at 21/10 odds* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018).
Palace have only netted the five goals this season, with only Huddersfield and Cardiff having managed fewer. Of those five, Zaha has three of them, but he has failed to score in Palace’s last three games. All five of Palace’s goals this season have come away from Selhurst Park.
Of the goals which they have conceded on their travels this term, 75% of them have been shipped in the second half of matches. Heading back into action only Newcastle and Cardiff have lost more Premier League matches than Palace have done this season (5). Palace haven’t kept a clean sheet at Goodison Park since 1992.
Everton v Crystal Palace Head to Head
Everton collected a good 3-1 home win over Palace in this corresponding fixture last season following a draw at Selhurst Park. That extended a good unbeaten streak they have over the Eagles. Everton are undefeated in their last seven league games against Palace, winning three of those. Everton have picked up a W1 D2 record in their last three Premier League home games against the Eagles. Four of the last six have ended under 2.5 goals.
Who will win – Everton v Crystal Palace Predictions
Even though Everton’s defence hasn’t looked great, Palace look lightweight. We have to roll with a home win to nil for our Everton v Crystal Palace predictions. This is a big chance for the Toffees to drive home an advantage.
