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.
