Can still produce a positive response to having suffered their first league defeat of the season? City suffered a loss at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea last weekend and subsequently lost top spot to Liverpool. They can claim it back early on Saturday with a result against the Toffees. Everton have had a decent season but have struggled for away wins. Read our Manchester City v Everton betting tips for more.
Man City 1/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 11th, 2018 at 8:43 p.m.)
Manchester City got their first taste of league defeat this season as Chelsea beat them 2-0 at Stamford Bridge last weekend. That snapped a seven-match losing streak that they had been on in the top flight. They have won all eight of their home games this season though in the Premier League. In those eight at the Etihad Manchester City have scored 30 goals. They have conceded just the five as well in that run of games. 80% of their home goals conceded have been in the first half of fixtures.
The Citizens have bagged a clean sheet in 38% of home fixtures and still 62% of their home games have gone above 3.5 goals such has been their scoring power. The Citizens have been leading at half time in six of their eight home games (D2). The only side to have conceded fewer league goals than City this season is Liverpool. In all eight of their home fixtures, this season Manchester City have scored at least two goals. They have not managed a clean sheet in any of their last three at the Etihad.
The last two between them at the Etihad have ended in 1-1 draws
Everton have taken a point from each of their last three league visits to Man City
In the last four EPL meetings, things are even with one win each and two draws
Both teams have scored in half of the last six EPL meetings
Everton have scored in each of their last three at the Etihad in all competitions
Everton rescued a point in a 2-2 draw at home against Watford last weekend, thanks to a 96th-minute goal. That was a struggle for them after having taken the lead in the game. Everton have earned back to back draws in the league now. But they are winless in their last three and have only banked one victory in their last five played (home and away combined) in a W1 D3 L1 sequence. Away from home, this season in the EPL Everton are only W1 D3 L3. They are winless in their last three away from Goodison and haven’t been great out on the road this term.
Everton have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last three league outings now. The Toffees haven’t been winning at the halftime break in any of their away games this season. In fact, they have been level at the break in all but one of their road games. Four of their away half-time scorelines have been 0-0 draws. Everton have conceded 70% of their away goals in the second half of matches and in total have kept just one away clean sheet. They have only scored in one of their last three away games. They have tallied seven goals in seven away games, failing to score in 43% of those fixtures.
Let’s face it, the loss won’t have gone down well with Pep Guardiola last weekend. City should respond in strong fashion to prove a point. It’s time to reset and they can grab a win with a clean sheet against Everton who haven’t been convincing enough away from home.

Only three points separates Everton never Watford in the league heading into this Monday night showdown, but the two are trending in opposite directions in terms of form. Everton are on the up and have returned a good season at Goodison Park. Watford meanwhile are struggling for form having earned just one point in their last five league games. Read our Everton v Watford betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 6th, 2018 at 9:47 p.m.)
The Toffees somehow failed to win a home game against Newcastle in midweek. They had to settle for a 1-1 draw despite totally dominating the fixture. That moved the Merseysiders onto a W5 D2 L1 record on home soil this season. The Toffees have put together a five-match unbeaten streak at Goodison Park currently. As Watford are currently sitting 11th ahead of the weekend, it still means that Everton haven’t faced a side from the current top-half of the table this season at home. Everton have scored 14 goals in their eight home fixtures this season, conceding seven. Home and away combined they have banked a clean sheet in three of their last five fixtures.
The Toffees have trended with being level at half time in six of their eight home games this season (W1 D1). Seven times actually, looking at all of their fixtures (home and away), they have been at 0-0 at half time. Each to their last four league games have gone under 2.5 goals. 71% of the goals Everton have conceded at home this season have been in the first half of games. As a positive, Everton have scored in each and every home game played this season and have opened the scoring in all but three at Goodison Park. Only Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea have earned more home points than Everton this season.
The two traded home wins in the EPL last season
Each of the last four meetings have been won by the home side
Things are even with two wins each and two draws in the last six meetings
Everton are W12 D1 in thirteen previous home games against Watford in all competitions
Both teams have scored in each of the last five meetings at Goodison Park
The Hornets were sunk in 2-1 home loss against Manchester City in midweek. That moved them on a disappointing three match losing streak in the top flight now and are going to have to start digging deep to snap out of it. Looking back a little further the Hornets have earned one point in their last five league games only. During that run of games, they have scored just the two goals. Away from home, the Hornets have tallied seven goals this season, conceding eight. In their last three fixtures away from Vicarage Road the Hornets have come up with just the one point. There has been no clean sheet in those three games.
Only one of Watford’s away games this season have gone over 2.5 goals so that’s a big trend to consider. Each of their last six away games have gone under 2.5 goals. They have failed to bank themselves a clean sheet in any of their last five league games. Watford have played two away games this season against sides currently above them in the table. They lost both without scoring (Leicester and Arsenal). In fact, from eight games against sides currently in the top half of the table, Watford are just W2 L6. They are currently sitting two points worse off than they were at this stage of last season’s campaign.
Everton should find a way to make the most of this home fixture against a side who are out of sorts at the moment. The Toffees don’t look likely to lose. Watford’s lack of away goals are likely to prevent them winning. Home win.
8th December 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Both Everton and Newcastle suffered defeats over the weekend so will be keen to bounce back. The Toffees will be banking on their good home form to get them over the line following their disappointment in the Merseyside derby on the weekend. This is the highest quality opponent the Magpies have faced in a while away from home. Read our Everton v Newcastle betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:18 p.m.)
The Toffees were heartbroken deep into stoppage time of their Merseyside derby effort at Liverpool on the weekend. A mistake from keeper Jordan Pickford helped Liverpool bag the only goal of the game in the 96th minute. It leaves Everton at W5 D1 L2 in their last eight league games which is still a good return.
The Toffees are running very well at home at the moment. Not only do they have an overall record of W5 D1 L1 this season on home soil in the EPL but they have won their last four in a row there. That could be slightly skewed though as they haven’t played anyone currently in the top half of the table at home.
Everton have a clean sheet in two of their last three games. Everton to win to nil is at 6/4 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm) and they have bagged a clean sheet in 43% of their home fixtures this term. Still, even with those clean sheets earned at Goodison Park, 29% of their home games have gone over 3.5 goals.
The Toffees have netted 13 goals in their seven home games, and 62% of those have been in the second half of games. The Toffees have been level at the halftime break in five of their home games this term and have conceded 67% of their home goals in the first half of games. Everton have scored first in five of their seven home games this season.
Everton took a 1-0 home win over Newcastle last season
The Toffees are on a five-match winning streak against Newcastle
Newcastle have failed to score in their last five against Everton
Everton have won their last four home games against the Magpies
Newcastle are winless in six at Goodison
Newcastle were moving along well on a good four-match undefeated streak of form. Then West Ham showed up at St James’ Park on the weekend and smashed the Magpies 3-0. Away from home Newcastle are just a W1 D3 L2 for the season. Their only away win happened out at Burnley, who are currently sat in the bottom two in the table. Under 2.5 goals is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm).
There have been just the five away goals scored by the Magpies this season. All of their five away goals have cropped up in the first half of games. Newcastle haven’t been defensively bad though, shipping just six goals in six away games. Four of those six have come against them after the half time break. That has helped them sit level at half time in four of their six away games and three of those were 0-0 draws.
So that should appeal as a half-time correct score option. Only Crystal Palace and Huddersfield have managed were league goals than Newcastle this season. Everton to win by a one-goal margin is at 5/2 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm),. The trend there is that Newcastle’s two away defeats (Man City and Man Utd) have both only been by a one-goal margin
It should be Everton all the way in this one. Their home form speaks for itself really and the Magpies got their recent away points at sides beneath them in the table. Everton can deliver maximum points. Home win to nil.
4th December 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Everton will head to Anfield knowing that no-one in the Premier League has managed to get the better of their bitter rivals yet this term. It would be some occasion if the Toffees were the first to beat the Reds. Liverpool are serious title contenders and will be looking to put the emotions of the occasion behind them and focus on gaining those all important three points. Read our Liverpool v Everton betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 28th, 2018 at 6:40 p.m.)
Liverpool racked up yet another win last weekend as they picked up a 3-0 success at Vicarage Road against Watford. That leaves them with the impressive record of W10 D3 L0 this term in the top flight. At Anfield, they have produced a W5D1 record and have won their last two there. The defence of Liverpool has been fantastic as they have conceded just the one goal in their six home games in the Premier League this season.
Liverpool to win to nil is at 11/8 odds* (betting odds taken on November 28th, 2018 at 5:00 pm). Going forward, the Reds have averaged over two goals per home game this season. 67% of their home fixtures have been won to nil. They are currently 10 points better off than at this stage of last season’s’ campaign. Liverpool have leading at halftime in all but one of their Anfield fixtures this season.
A Liverpool/Liverpool half-time/full-time option is at 20/21 odds* (betting odds taken on November 28th, 2018 at 5:00 pm) should pique interest as a good proposition. The only team to have produced more home points this season than Liverpool is current leaders Man City. No team has conceded fewer goals this season in the top flight than Liverpool. Mo Salah has been trending as well from a betting perspective because has scored the first goal in all but one of Liverpool’s last five Premier League games so it worth a look in the first goalscorer market.
There were two league draws between them last season
Liverpool took a home win over Everton in the FA Cup last season
The Reds are unbeaten in seventeen games in all competitions against Everton
There have been five draws in the last eight league meetings
The Reds have scored nine goals in their last three home games against Everton
The Toffees took a 1-0 win at Goodison Park against Cardiff last weekend to move them onto a three-match unbeaten streak of form (W2 D1). They have also managed to pick up back to back clean sheets so things are going well for them at the moment. Both teams not to score is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 28th, 2018 at 5:00 pm). There is a disparity between their home and away form though as the Toffees are just W1 D3 L2 for the season out on the road.
They have come up with the seven goals in six games away from home, connecting the nine goals. The Toffees have collected just one away clean sheet, a 0-0 draw at Chelsea. The Toffees have not been winning at halftime in any of their away games this season. In fact, they have been level at halftime in five of their six road games.
So the half time draw is at 8/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 28th, 2018 at 5:00 pm). 71% of Everton’s away goals this season have come in the second half of games. While they don’t have the greatest of away form, their recent 0-0 at Chelsea indicates a clear improvement, especially in the defensive area and currently, only four teams have conceded fewer goals than Everton this season.
Liverpool are going strong on home soil and their defence has been so good that a home win to nil looks a good proposition. Everton just haven’t quite delivered away from home as well as they have done at Goodison Park.
29th November 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Toffees earned a good point at Chelsea last time out and will be looking for points to keep them in touch with those directly above them in the top half of the table. They will likely have big appeal as a home banker this weekend as they take on Cardiff who are still stuck in the relegation zone. Read our Everton v Cardiff betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 20th, 2018 at 7:32 p.m.)
Everton earned a good draw out at Chelsea in their last game, a hard-earned point that was for them. But they looked like a decent attacking threat in the game at times. The Toffees have won four of their last six league games (D1 L1) so haven’t been bad at all. Most of their success this season has been on home soil. Everton are W4 D1 L1 in their six at Goodison Park so far this term.
All of their home games this season have been against sides currently in the bottom half of the table. Everton have averaged exactly two goals per game and they have taken a clean sheet in 33% of their home games. They aren’t facing a prolific side in this one of course and Everton to win to nil is at 6/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 20th, 2018 at 7:35 pm). Two of Everton’s last three home wins have been with a clean sheet.
Everton took a 2-1 win in this corresponding fixture from the 2013/14 EPL season
The Toffees are on a four-match home winning streak against Cardiff
The 2013/14 EPL meetings were the first time that they have come together since the 1980 FA Cup
Cardiff gave themselves a good boost just before the international break as they scrape out a last-minute winner at home to beat Brighton 2-1. That was their second win of the season, but for them, those two wins have both been on home soil. Cardiff are W0 D1 L4 from their five games out on the road this season and that one point was earned at Huddersfield who are second from bottom.
Cardiff have come up with just the two away goals in their five games so both teams not to score looks an obvious option for the weekend at 3/4 odds* (betting odds taken on November 20th, 2018 at 7:35 pm). They are likely to be on the back foot for long periods of this game. They have conceded at over two goals per away game on average so far this season so the 2-0 correct score in favour of Everton will naturally appeal.
Everton should have a comfortable afternoon on home soil in this one. Cardiff pose little threat and the Toffees have shown good attacking intent at home. The straightforward option is Everton to win to nil.
21st November 2018 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
This has the makings of being a good, entertaining and open game on Sunday. Chelsea just like to get on the front foot and attack and they have produced an undefeated run of form this season. Can they keep it going as they host the Toffees? Everton are not in bad shape themselves really having won four of their last five league outings. This would be a massive haul of three points if they could get them. Read our Chelsea v Everton betting tips for more.

It was a comfortable 3-1 home success that Chelsea took over Crystal Palace last weekend in the top flight. That moved them onto an unbeaten W8 D3 record for this reason in the Premier League. They collected a 1-0 away win at BATE in the Europa League on Thursday night as well, putting themselves through to the next round with two games to spare in the group. Chelsea’s EPL home form is at W4 D2 L0 for the season. The Blues have managed an average of 2.5 goals per home game this season, and at Stamford Bridge, there have been an average of 3.6 goals per fixture. Over 2.5 goals is at 8/15 odds* (betting odds taken on November 8th, 2018 at 8:20 pm).
Alvaro Morata has three goals in his last two games for Chelsea in the league so has hit a bit of goalscoring form. There has only been the one home clean sheet for the Blues this season in the top flight and none in their last four at the Bridge. Chelsea have been winning at both half time and full time in four of their six home games this season. A Chelsea/Chelsea half-time/full-time option is at 21/20 odds* (betting odds taken on November 8th, 2018 at 8:20 pm).
In each of their last four games in the top flight, Chelsea have produced at least two goals. Chelsea have come up with at least two goals in each of their last four league games at Stamford Bridge against Everton as well. The Blues have enjoyed getting on the front foot under the new manager this term and they have opened the scoring in 82% of their matches this season. They can put a bit of pressure back on Manchester City, who kick off later in the day in their derby against Man Utd, by collecting three points in this one.
The Blues took four points against Everton last term
Chelsea haven’t lost a league home against Everton since 1994
The Blues have a clean sheet in four of their last five against Everton in all competitions
Four of the last six league meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Everton have won just one of the last nine league meetings against Chelsea
Everton came up with a 3-1 home success over Brighton last weekend in the top flight and that is four wins in their last five games which they have picked up. So it’s not been too bad for them really. Although, overall this season the Toffees have won just one away game in the top flight (D2 L2). They have not won any of their three games played against sides currently sitting in the top seven in the league either, taking a D1 L2 record from those three such games. Everton have tallied seven away goals this season, scoring in all but one of their road fixtures.
Again pointing to a high scoring game is the fact that there has been an average of 3.2 goals in each of Everton’s away games this season. 80% of Everton’s away games have gone over 2.5 goals. Both teams to score is at 3/4 odds* (betting odds taken on November 8th, 2018 at 8:20 pm). Richarlison netted a brace last weekend against Brighton but is just a little bit of an injury doubt for the weekend. Everton will be vulnerable at the back as they don’t have an away clean sheet so far this season. 67% of their conceded away goals have been in the second half of matches. To the credit of boss Marco Silva, the Toffees are a good seven points better off than they were after eleven games of last season’s top flight campaign.
Even though Everton are likely to turn up and challenge, Chelsea still look more than good enough to create the chances to open up the visitors and take the win. Chelsea look very strong but we will predict the Chelsea to win and Both Teams To Score option

Where did this run of form from Brighton come from? They head to Goodison Park on Saturday with three straight wins behind them. That’s some hugely positive stuff from them, but still, their overall away form for the season isn’t good. Everton will be looking for a response to a disappointing result at Old Trafford last weekend. Read our Everton v Brighton betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 31st, 2018 at 6:23 p.m.)
The Toffees put on a good show at Old Trafford last weekend by still ended up losing 2-1. They will feel a bit hard done by in that results though because of some refereeing decisions. The loss there against Manchester United snapped a three-match winning streak that they had put together.
Back at Goodison Park things are going well for them having taken back to back clean sheet wins over Fulham and Crystal Palace, scoring five goals across the two games. Everton to win to nil is at 8/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 31st, 2018 at 12:02 pm). Everton’s home form this season in the Premier League is W3 D1 L1.
They have averaged 1.8 goals per game at home this season and in the correct score market an Everton 1-0 is the shortest-priced option at 6/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 31st, 2018 at 12:02 pm). The Toffees have found the back of the net in all of their home games so far, and they have opened the scoring in three of their five fixtures at Goodison Park.
A Draw/Everton half-time/ full-time option is a decent prediction as just once Everton have been winning at the break in a home game. That is at 10/3 odds option for the game* (betting odds taken on October 31st, 2018 at 12:02 pm). Cenk Tosun has scored in each of his last two home games in the league for Everton, while Gylfi Sigurdsson has scored in three of his last four league games (four goals).
Everton took four points from last season’s EPL meetings with Brighton
Those are the only two previous Premier League meetings
Everton are W6 D5 L2 in their overall head to head with the Seagulls
The last win for Brighton over Everton was in 1982
Brighton have strung together a great and somewhat unexpected run of form. They have won their last three Premier League games, taking 1-0 wins in the sequence against West Ham, Newcastle and Wolves. Out on their travels, they have posted a W1 D1 L3 for the season away from the Amex in the top flight. The lone away win their happened in their last road game which was out at Newcastle.
Brighton have produced just three away goals all season. Both teams NOT to score is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 31st, 2018 at 12:02 pm). Four times this season away from home Brighton have been losing 1-0 at half time. Only four teams have earned fewer away points than Brighton this season. In their three away games against sides currently sitting in the top half of the table, Brighton have lost each of them without having scored a single goal.
They have collected just the one away clean sheet on their travels so far. In 60% of their league games, this season Brighton have been losing at halftime. Still, as a positive, they do actually have the joint-best defensive record of sites currently in the bottom half of the table. Based on that for Everton v Brighton betting tips, under 2.5 goals is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 31st, 2018 at 12:02 pm). Glenn Murray has scored two of Brighton’s last three goals and two of the club’s three away goals this season.
Everton to win to nil appeals in this one. They have won their last two games at Goodison Park without conceding and in playing host to a low-scoring Brighton, they can do the same in this one. Back the Toffees to get that win with a clean sheet.

There will be pressure back on Manchester United on the weekend as they play host to Everton. They almost gave themselves a lift with a win at Chelsea last weekend but were denied late on to leave them with one win in four. Everton meanwhile have strung together a three-match winning streak so will arrive at OT in form. Read our Manchester United v Everton betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 26th, 2018 at 1:21 p.m.)
It looked as if Manchester United were heading to a great three points at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea last weekend. But they were denied right at the death and had to settle for a 2-2 draw. That leaves Manchester United’s league form at W4 D2 L3 for the season. Their record at Old Trafford reads W2 D1 L1. They took that dramatic 3-2 win over Newcastle in their last home game, which was after being 2-0 down at half time.
They conceded the first goal against Chelsea last weekend as well and their defence still looks a major problem area for them. Going forward they have scored at least two goals in four of their last six league outings now and both teams to score is a great prediction at 3/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 26th, 2018 at 4:05 pm). Romelu Lukaku is on a four-match Premier League goal drought.
Still, United have no one to swap him out for, so he goes as their 13/10 first goalscorer favourite* (betting odds taken on October 26th, 2018 at 4:05 pm). United still haven’t managed a clean sheet on home soil this season, overall only taking one across the course of the season. The Red Devils have shipped at least two goals in each of their last three league games. They have great home form overall in the Premier League with only three defeats in their last 38 league outings at Old Trafford. They have lost only one of their last 21 home matches against the Toffees in all competitions as well.
United beat Everton twice last season without conceding a single goal
United are unbeaten in seven against the Toffees in all competitions
Manchester United are W3 D1 in their last four EPL home games against Everton
Both teams have scored in four of the last eleven meetings
United haven’t conceded more than one goal in any of their last seven games against the Toffees
Although they left it late to get their goals, Everton banked a 2-0 win at home over Crystal Palace last weekend. That left Marco Silva’s men on a three-match winning streak of form in the top flight. Away from home, the Toffees are W1 D2 L1. They have been consistent in front of goal having only failed to net once this season. Everton have also produced at least two in each of their last three fixtures. Over 2.5 goals is 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 26th, 2018 at 4:05 pm).
75% of Everton’s away games have ended over the 2.5 goal line this season, half of them have gone over 3.5 goals. So there is a high potential of goals here. The Toffees have scored 67% of their away goals this season after the halftime break, while they have conceded 71% of their away goals after halftime. The half time draw is at 13/10 odds* (betting odds taken on October 26th, 2018 at 4:05 pm).
Everton have been drawing at half time and winning at full time in their last 3 matches in the Premier League. So that is a decent trend to weigh up if you fancy the Toffees to bag three points on the weekend at Old Trafford. They will be taking on a side which has no injury concerns with them. Everton’s shortest-priced option in the anytime goalscorer market is Cenk Tosun at 5/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 26th, 2018 at 4:05 pm)
It is a tough one to call but we are going to side with United. Everton are scoring well and United are poor at the back, but the Toffees haven’t quite done enough away from home this season for us. Manchester United to win & both teams to score.
26th October 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Toffees have a good chance at three points at Goodison Park you imagine in this one. They recorded back to back wins for the first time this season just before the international break. They play host to Crystal Palace who are badly struggling in front of goal this season. Read our Everton v Crystal Palace betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 10/3
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 15th, 2018 at 7:52 p.m.)
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.
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 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.
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.

Everton eased themselves to a good win last weekend as they tore Fulham apart at Goodison Park. That kept them holding steady in the middle of the table. Leicester have won four of their last six games and see to have plenty of goals in them this season and this could be a fairly evenly matched contest. Read our Leicester v Everton betting tips for more.

The Foxes have back to back league wins under their belt and hold a W4 L3 record from their seven games played this season. The feature of their games has been them scoring very well and they are almost at an average of two per game. They have netted at least two goals in all but two matches this season. Immediately for this one, given the recent history between the two as well recently, over 2.5 goals is great value at 9/10 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 2:41 pm). Leicester’s home form reads W2 L1 so far.
While they have been scoring freely, they have struggled a bit at the back with only the two clean sheets. So both teams to score is a top option for Leicester v Everton betting tips and that is at 7/10 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 2:41 pm). Jamie Vardy has scored in each of his last two games and is naturally running at the head of both the Anytime and First goalscorer markets. Leicester have not conceded a second-half goal on home soil this season and this has the potential of being a fantastic, open and competitive game.
Everton haven’t quick clicked this season and after some attacking misfires, they did put things together last weekend to hammer Fulham 3-0 at Goodison Park. That was just the result they needed too as it snapped a four-match winless streak they were on. Everton are just W2 D3 L2 for the season so haven’t been consistent at all. Away from home, they are still looking for their first league win of the season, having collected two points only from their three games in draws out at Wolves and Bournemouth.
Both of those draws were 2-2 affairs. Everton have been pretty slack at the back this season and in the correct score market a Leicester 2-1 option does look great value at 9/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 2:41 pm). The Toffees have conceded exactly two goals in each of their three away games this season so there is a small trend there. The Toffees were pretty dreadful away from home last season with just three wins and it’s not going great for them this time. Overall home and away Everton have just one clean sheet this season.
These two traded home wins last season and four of the last five Premier League meetings between them have actually produced a home win. There have been plenty of goals between these two recently with seven of the last nine all going over 2.5 goals. Leicester are unbeaten in their last nine league home games against the Toffees.
We are going to back the home win in our Leicester v Everton betting tips. The Everton defence hasn’t look so great this season that it could survive against what has been a pretty free-scoring Leicester side. Home win.
