Arsenal v Everton Betting Tips: 1 AH-1, 2017-05-21

Sanchez (Arsenal)
ARSENAL v EVERTON Sunday 21st May 2017 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips Touted as a straight shoot-out between Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez and Everton’s Romelu Lukaku for the Golden Boot, this game represents so much more; a win for Arsenal here gives them a chance at a top four finish (depending on how Liverpool get on against Middlesbrough at Anfield). With a possible Champions League qualifying spot at stake for The Gunners, manager Arsene Wenger is expected to field his strongest team available with the likes of Sanchez, Giroud and Ozil expected to spearhead their attacking department. Arsenal have tried their hardest to resurrect a disappointing Premier League though as they’ve collected seven wins from their last nine overall, and having won their last four on the trot with wins over West Ham, Leicester City, Manchester United and Sunderland which included clean sheets to go with them. Visitors Everton only have pride left to play for in this final day of the Premier League season as their quest for a european spot disappeared in disappointing fashion following some indifferent results in their season run-in. The Toffees’ last nine league matches saw them record wins over Hull City, Leicester City, Burnley and Watford, but these were all achieved at Goodison Park where they’ve lost just twice all season; however, poor away form ultimately cost them a top five position. An away record of  4-6-8  19/25 is simply not good enough for a team who hold european ambitions, and this is an area that Everton manager Ronald Koeman must address next season if they’re to improve upon this season’s seventh place finish. There’s everything to play for where Arsenal are concerned, and I’m expecting them to come out all guns blazing here. Pick: Arsenal AH-1 @ 1.57 Paddy Power

Everton v Watford Betting Tips: 1 AH-1, 2017-05-12

Lukaku (Everton)
EVERTON v WATFORD Friday 12th May 2017 - Kickoff: 1945hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips Everton head into their Friday night clash with Watford seeking to avoid a third consecutive league defeat in the English top tier following recent back-to-back losses to Chelsea and Swansea City, but they return to their fortress Goodison Park tonight. The Toffees hold a very decent and solid record on home soil with stats of  12-4-2  41/16 under their belts so far this season, and although they’ve suffered the two aforementioned losses in recent weeks, I cannot see any reason why they can’t bounce back with a win on Friday evening. Striker and the Premier League’s leading goalscorer, Lukaku, will be looking to further add to his impressive goal haul tonight which currently stands at 24 goals, and with Watford having one of the poorest records on the road, there’s every chance of this happening. Onto Watford then, and the visitors currently sit in 15th place in the Premier League following a recent slump in form which has seen the Hornets lose four of their last five league matches, and now sit just six points above third from bottom club Hull City. Defeats to Tottenham, Hull City, Liverpool and Leicester City resulted in 10 goals against and failed to score in reply as Watford have really struggled to hit the back of the net in recent weeks. Striker Troy Deeney seems to be out of favour with manager Mazzarri which seems odd, given that Deeney is their leading goalscorer with 10 goals. To make matters worse, Watford possess a poor away record of  3-3-11 12/34 which includes having lost their last five on the road on the trot (which have all been to nil), so the omens aren’t good for The Hornets when they make their way to merseyside here. Pick: Everton AH-1 @ 1.74 Bet Victor

Swansea v Everton Betting Tips: 1 AH+0.5, 2017-05-06

Lukasz Fabianski (Swansea)
SWANSEA CITY v EVERTON Saturday 6th May 2017 - Kickoff: 1730hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips The later kick-off on Saturday evening also represents a vital game in Swansea City’s Premier League season as they look to lift themselves out of the bottom three when Everton visit their Liberty Stadium with a huge three points at stake for the hosts. Swansea grabbed what could be a vital point last time out at Old Trafford as they sneaked a 1-1 draw against Manchester United to keep their dreams of top flight survival alive, and their last three matches of this season’s campaign are also games that Swansea have a chance of winning, starting today. The Swans registered a 2-0 win over Stoke City last time out at Liberty Stadium and they were good value for the win, and the Welsh outfit have collected four wins from their last six at home amidst an overall record of  6-3-8  24/33. Forward Llorente re-found his goalscoring touch against Stoke as their possible revival continues under Paul Clement. This away game at Swansea City could be a tricky assignment for an Everton side who are increasingly drifting further away from the Europa League spot as they now find themselves seven points behind fifth placed Manchester United, although United do travel to Arsenal this weekend too. Everton have made Goodison Park a fortress again this season, but it’s their results away from home that have let down Ronald Koeman’s side as The Toffees have returned a disappointing  4-6-7  19/24 haul on their travels to date. With just one away win from their last eight on the road for Everton, the door could now be open for Swansea City to take advantage here. I advise backing the hosts with the handicap though. Pick: Swansea City AH+0.5 @ 1.66 Bet Victor

Everton v Chelsea Betting Tip Everton – 30 April 2017

Lukaku (Everton)
30th April 2017 Kickoff: 2000hrs Everton v Chelsea – Football – England – Premier League It is now getting to the crunch time (or as Sir Alex Ferguson called it, squeaky bum time) in the battle for the title. Chelsea have been on for over six months now and at one point appeared to be home and dried when holding a double digit lead over Tottenham. Now, with, only five games left for the top two, there is just four points in it. Four points is still a sizeable lead with so few games left but Everton away is never an easy prospect and you get a feeling that Sunday’s game will go a long way to determining where the league title ends up. Despite some disappointments and a decidedly sticky run towards the end of 2016, it has been a positive first season in charge for Ronald Koeman at Goodison Park. The Toffees are well clear in seventh spot and still hold out hopes of a top six finish come the end of the campaign. Romelu Lukaku is out in front in the scoring charts whilst a number of young players have made their mark in recent weeks and months which suggests the future is very bright for Everton. Speculation about Lukaku refuses to go away, though, and the strongest rumour remains a return to Sunday’s opponents. How that plays out remains to be seen but Everton are on course for their best ever home record in the Premier League having won 12 of their 17 games at Goodison, losing just once. That loss came against Liverpool in December and since then they have won all eight home games in the league, a ninth straight league win would certainly be welcome in part of north London. Chelsea’s defeat to Manchester United earlier this month could have been a defining moment in this Premier League season (and may well be) but Antonio Conte’s men have regathered themselves to book a place in the FA Cup final and tick another game off in their quest to win this title by seeing off Southampton at home. It has been that mentality and desire which has seen them come through so many difficult stages of this season because despite winning both games in the last week, they have not been overly impressive. Indeed, Spurs will consider themselves very unfortunate to have lost at Wembley last Saturday whilst the Gary Cahill goal just before half time was a crucial turning point against the Saints. Nevertheless, the title remains theirs to lose and Conte will be well aware that this weekend’s game with Everton will be massive in determine if they are to go all the way, especially as Spurs host Arsenal later on Sunday.

Everton v Chelsea Betting Tip

Spurs and Chelsea are the only two teams to have a better home record than Everton this season which is a testament to the work of Koeman and his players. The consistency that they have shown at home has been missing under previous management and if they can continue that, plus improve their form on the road with suitable investment, the Toffees will not be far away from a top four challenge. In the more immediate future Everton will want to prove themselves against the league leaders and make life as difficult as possible for Conte’s team. Chelsea hold the best away record of any team, though, and their attitude and discipline has been first class all season when playing on the road. Interestingly, Chelsea’s only away win against any of the other top seven they have played came against Manchester City in December. They have lost to Arsenal and both Manchester clubs without scoring and there is just the sense that if you can unsettle their back three you can disrupt their system sufficiently to get the win. The defence have also proven susceptible to balls into the box which Everton are known to do at home with Lukaku leading the line. The hosts are excellent in front of their home fans and they will be smarting having lost 5-0 to Chelsea earlier in the season. Home win. Everton 3/1 Marathon Bet

West Ham v Everton Betting Tips: 2 AH0, 2017-04-22

Carroll (West Ham)
WEST HAM v EVERTON Saturday 22nd April 2017 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips In a reduced fixture schedule on Saturday afternoon, West Ham play host to Everton at the London Stadium as the home side look to build upon a recent win and a draw and take a step closer to confirming their survival for another season. A 1-0 home win over relegation candidates Swansea City and avoiding defeat away at Sunderland in last weekend’s 2-2 draw went a long way to lifting The Hammers into safety, however, they’ll be disappointed that they conceded a late equaliser to The Black Cats as they were seemingly headed for back-to-back wins. And although West Ham possess a home record of  6-3-7  18/27, their results against teams situated in the top half has so far yielded a disappointing record of  1-1-5  7/18 which includes defeats to Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Leicester City. Visitors Everton know they have a chance to get a jump over the teams above them today as Manchester United travel to Burnley on Sunday and Arsenal who are involved in the FA Cup, when they make their way to the nation’s capital this afternoon. Everton registered back-to-back wins last weekend when they beat Burnley 3-1 which followed on from their 4-2 win over Leicester City, with both wins being recorded at Goodison Park where they hold an impressive record with just one defeat all season to date. However, Everton will need to improve upon their current away record of  4-5-7  19/24 here if they’re to jump into european contention this weekend, but they do have a chance to do so as their record at bottom half teams stands at an even  3-3-3  13/10. I’ll back Everton with the round ball here today. Pick: Everton AH0 @ 1.60 Bet Victor

Everton v Burnley Betting Tips: 1, 2017-04-15

Premier League Tips
EVERTON v BURNLEY Saturday 15th April 2017 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips Everton still remain in the hunt for a Europa League place as they sit just two league places and three points below fifth placed Manchester United as we head into this Easter weekend, with today’s hosts playing Burnley at Goodison Park. Everton have shown some strong form in recent times as they’ve gained wins over West Brom, Hull City and Leicester City at their fortress Goodison Park where they’ve suffered just one defeat all season amidst an overall record of  11-4-1  38/12. That defeat was to merseyside rivals Liverpool as The Reds did the ‘double’ over The Toffees this season. That defeat aside, Everton have been a hard side to beat on home turf all term, and it’s no coincidence that Everton’s good form has aligned with a fantastic season for striker Lukaku who leads the Premier League goalscoring charts with 23 goals. Visitors Burnley have also enjoyed a much better season in the English top flight under manager Sean Dyche who has remained throughout the bad times (the Clarets were relegated season before last), and the good times (he was still at the helm when Burnley got promoted at the end of last season). Burnley sit just below mid-table thanks to a very good home record at Turf Moor of  10-2-4  23/14 but they still remain the only club in the division yet to register an away win all season to date, as they possess a poor away record of  0-4-12  9/30. The Clarets have failed to score on eight occasions from their 16 away matches to date, with only fourth from bottom club Hull City (8 goals) scoring fewer on the road than Dyche’s men.

Everton v Hull Betting Tips: 1, 2017-03-18

Jagielka (Everton)
EVERTON v HULL CITY Saturday 18th March 2017 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips Everton striker Romelu Lukaku bagged his 19th goal in this season’s Premier League last weekend to help his club to a 3-0 win and all three points against his former employers West Brom, which also extended The Toffees’ winning streak at home to five on the trot. Everton are once again at their Goodison Park fortress this Saturday when they welcome third from bottom club Hull City as the hosts look for a sixth home win on the bounce following previous league wins racked up against Southampton, Manchester City, Bournemouth, Sunderland and West Brom. The Toffees have suffered just one defeat in their last 11 matches in the English top flight which was a 3-2 loss away at second placed Tottenham, but they’ve become a very hard unit to break down on home turf as their home record of 9-4-1 30/10 indicates. Hull City also registered a much needed three points in their 2-1 home win over fellow Premier League strugglers Swansea City last Saturday, but they face one of the toughest grounds to get anything at this season when they make their way to merseyside on Saturday. Hull currently occupy third from bottom in the English top flight and remain in the relegation zone despite recent wins at home over Liverpool and Swansea City, and it appears that The Tigers’ best chances of Premiership survival will be the points they pick up at their KC Stadium. This is just as well when you consider their away results which has seen them win just once on the road all season (a 2-0 win against the same opponents, Swansea City back in August last year), while their overall away record stands at a disastrous 1-2-11 7/31. Pick: Everton to win @ 1.53 bet365

Everton v West Brom Betting Tips: 1, 2017-03-11

Lukaku (Everton)
EVERTON v WEST BROM Saturday 11th March 2017 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips Everton’s promising nine-game unbeaten sequence in the Premier League came to an abrupt end last weekend when they went down to a 3-2 defeat away at Tottenham at White Hart Lane, but they return to their Goodison Park fortress for this afternoon’s match with West Brom as the hosts look to return to winning ways. Despite losing 3-2, Everton will be encouraged by their comeback along with striker Lukaku notching his 18th goal for the season, and with a solid home record of  8-4-1  27/10 behind them, The Toffees will be confident they can bounce back at Goodison Park. Everton have also won their last four matches on the trot with wins gained against Southampton, Manchester City, Bournemouth and Sunderland as the goals have flowed with the hosts scoring a total of 15 goals and conceding just 3 in reply! Visitors West Brom have also enjoyed a solid season so far as The Baggies sit in 8th place and a top half finish for Tony Pulis’ boys would be regarded as a successful campaign in the top flight for the west midlands club. West Brom have made themselves a hard unit to break down at home as they have followed Pulis’ successful blueprint from his former Stoke City days, but they’re still experiencing inconsistent results away from home as they’ve recorded a 2-1 win at Southampton but suffered defeats at Arsenal and Tottenham also. The Baggies’ away record also reflects their vulnerabilities on the road with a record of  3-5-5  12/17 which includes just one clean sheet on their travels which was in their first away match of the season at Crystal Palace. I have to therefore go with the Everton momentum here… Pick: Everton to win @ 1.70 William Hill

Everton v Bournemouth Betting Tip Everton – 4 February 2017

Premier League Tips
Saturday 4th February 2016 Kickoff: 1500hrs Everton v Bournemouth Football – England – Premier League Everton and Bournemouth clash at Goodison Park on Saturday with the teams in contrasting form. The Toffees have enjoyed an excellent start to 2017 in the league whilst Bournemouth are just beginning to falter after a good first half of the campaign. It was the team from the south coast who were victorious when the two last met in September as a solitary strike from Junior Stanislas was enough to give them the spoils. It was their first win over Everton in the top flight and Saturday presents them with a chance to do the double. Everton have not lost a league game since the Merseyside derby on the 19th of December. Since then Ronald Koeman’s men have won four and drawn two, a run that has seen them solidify their position in seventh and give them just a hint of catching Manchester United above them. The only blot on 2017 thus far was a disappointing 2-1 home defeat to Leicester City in the FA Cup which brought an end to their hopes of silverware for another season. That said, the improvement in league form has been most welcome, in particular their two most recent home performances when beating Southampton 3-0 before inflicting a 4-0 thumping on Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. With their next three games against teams in the bottom six, starting with this one, it’s a real opportunity for Everton to close the gap further on United ahead of the last third of the season. Tuesday’s 2-0 defeat at home to Crystal Palace means Bournemouth have won only one of their last eight games in all competitions. That success was on the last day of 2016 and it seems a long time ago with three defeats and two draws since. It has been especially disappointing as other than the home game with Arsenal (where they had a three goal lead and ended drawing) it looked a like a run of games where they could all but guarantee safety and look to climb the table. A defeat to Hull as well as Palace and dropping points at home to Watford has just meant that Eddie Howe will be sitting slightly less comfortable than he was a few weeks ago. Sandwiched in between that set of league games was a humbling 3-0 loss away to lower league Milwall in the FA Cup when Howe decided to field a weakened team. That’s understandable when Premier League survival means so much to this club but it has heaped further pressure on the team who now have to find a return to winning ways.

Everton v Bournemouth Betting Tip

Everton are probably in the best stage of their season at the moment and come into this game with real confidence considering how they have performed in the last two games at Goodison. Liverpool remain the only visiting team to have won there this season which illustrates just how much of a test this will be for a struggling Bournemouth team. As ever with Everton, the key will be how Romelu Lukaku performs. With 12 league goals to his name he is far and away the main goal threat and has scored in each of his last three home games. Such is the form of both sides at the moment it is difficult to argue anything other than a home win and I’m not about to start. Koeman is beginning to turn things around at Everton and Saturday looks like an ideal opportunity for his players to record their seventh win at home in the league this season. Everton 8/11 @ Betfred

Everton v Bournemouth Betting Tips: 1, 2017-02-04

Premier League Tips
EVERTON v BOURNEMOUTH Saturday 4th February 2017 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips Everton are currently enjoying a six-match unbeaten run in the Premier League prior to this afternoon’s meeting with Bournemouth at Goodison Park, and another three points today for Ronald Koeman’s side could see them close the gap on the top six teams. Everton are in 7th place following recent wins over Leicester City, Koeman’s former side, Southampton, Manchester City and Crystal Palace along with useful points away at Hull City and Stoke City. The Toffees also hold a solid looking home record which stands at  6-4-1 19/7 where they’ve won three of their last four including a 2-1 win over Arsenal. Striker Lukaku (12 goals) is the obvious threat up front for the hosts. Visitors Bournemouth suffered an unexpected setback in their last match which was a midweek 2-0 defeat at home to strugglers Crystal Palace, and The Cherries have now gone four Premier League matches without a win ahead of their long trip up north to merseyside for this afternoon’s clash with Everton. Recent defeats to lowly Hull City and Palace perhaps indicate a bit of nervousness around the south coast club as they now sit in 14th place and are now seven points above the bottom three; another defeat here today could be interesting. Bournemouth’s away record also hasn’t done them many favours as it stands at  2-2-7 11/22 which includes four defeats from their last five away trips with defeats at Arsenal, Burnley, Chelsea and Hull City, along with keeping just two clean sheets on their travels to date. Everton are the form side here, and I expect them to take the points at Goodison Park. Pick: Everton to win @ 1.73 William Hill
