Tottenham v Everton Betting Tip Under 2.5 goals – 13 January 2018

Premier League Tips
Saturday 13th January 2018 Kick off 1730hrs Tottenham v Everton Football – England – Premier League Tottenham and Everton came into this season with huge expectation of it being a successful one. Spurs’ second place finish last term meant they were aiming once again to be challenging for the title whilst Everton’s huge financial outlay meant that their supporters, and owners, were looking to break into the top four and the opportunity to play Champions League football. As the season moves into the second half it hasn’t quite transpired like that and both will be disappointed with how their league campaigns have went so far. There is plenty of room for improvement between now and the end of the season, however, and both will be looking for the three points on Saturday in a bid to improve on their positions. The move to Wembley was always going to be a test for Spurs and their hopes of challenging for the title. White Hart Lane was a fortress for them under Mauricio Pochettino, particularly last season when they went unbeaten domestically. Having now played 11 home games in the league at Wembley, their record is not bad but it could be improved upon. Chelsea remain the only visiting team to leave with all three points however four teams have left with a share of the spoils. The most frustrating aspect of those draws will be the fact that three of them have come against teams in the bottom half of the table – most recently against West Ham last week. It’s those dropped points which have proved to be the problem in terms of Spurs trying to position themselves higher in the league compared to the current spot of fifth. Their next three home games could go a long way to deciding just where they finish come the end of the season as they face Manchester United and Arsenal after this weekend’s game with Everton. A comfortable victory on Saturday would be the perfect start to this important period. Sam Allardyce is slowly making his mark on Everton in the short space of time he’s been manager of the club, but there remains plenty of work to do for the former England manager. Last Friday’s 2-1 defeat away to rivals Liverpool in the FA Cup was a perfect indication of that. Everton were on the backfoot for much of the game but they were resolute and determined when having to defend for long periods. Despite going down they showed enough to get back into the game and looked like they would take the tie to a replay, only to lose a late goal. The attitude and spirit appears to be improving and that is having an impact on the number of goals they are conceding, but they still lack that out and out quality in midfield and further forward to make them more competitive and dangerous in attack. At the end of the day, however, it was a fifth straight game without a win for the Toffees, and a third straight defeat. Allardyce won’t be panicking just yet but he will want to see improvement between now and the end of the season and part of that is the performances against the bigger clubs in the league, of which Spurs are one.

Tottenham v Everton Betting Tip

Tottenham enjoyed one of their best days of the season thus far when these teams last met back in September. A 3-0 victory, thanks in large part to a Harry Kane double, was indicative of where the two sides were at that point and if the bookmakers odds for this one are to be believed, then we can expect something similar on Saturday. Spurs have plenty of goals in them due to Kane’s excellence and being supported with the supply from Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli. It makes them a huge threat for any visiting team once they get on a roll. Allardyce will be well aware of this and will attempt to get his Everton team well set up and look to frustrate their hosts as best they can. The arrival of Cenk Tosun may well see them carry more threat but it’s a big ask for the Turkish striker if he is to make his debut. It will be a contrast of styles for sure, in this one, and Allardyce will look to do similar to what his former club West Ham done last week when getting a 1-1 draw. Spurs battered the Hammers in that one but they were left frustrated and escaped with a point thanks to a late equaliser. It was also the seventh time in their 11 home games in the league where there has been two or fewer goals scored. When you consider eight of Everton’s 11 away games have also ended in this fashion, the sensible wager on Saturday is to play under 2.5 goals. Under 2.5 goals 31/25 @ Marathon Bet

Liverpool v Everton Betting Tip More goals scored in 2nd half – Friday 5 January 2018

FA Cup & League Cup Tips
Friday 5th January 2017 Kick off 1955hrs Liverpool v Everton Football – England – FA Cup The third round of the FA Cup is traditionally viewed as being an important weekend of the year in English football but the significance has deteriorated over the years, and it’s not viewed with the same priority as it once was. That said, this year’s draw resulted in there being a Merseyside derby to look forward to and instantly gets everybody talking about it. Liverpool and Everton both have rich traditions in the competition, including two FA Cup finals contested in the 1980’s when Liverpool were victorious on both occasions. Whilst no silverware is up for grabs on Friday, it is the red half of Merseyside who are once again favourites to prevail. December was looking like it would be a very frustrating month for Jurgen Klopp as Liverpool recorded two consecutive home draws with Everton and West Brom at the beginning of the month. Those dropped points resulted in them losing ground on the top four at one stage but now the month is over it has actually been a really productive spell for the Anfield club, particularly the festive period. Six wins in their last nine games have seen them reclaim fourth spot and are now only three points behind second placed Manchester United. Although it could have been even better for Klopp and his men had they managed to win the aforementioned games as well as keep their leads against Arsenal shortly before Christmas. That said, getting through the hectic month of December without dropping points is virtually impossible these days and the damage has been minimal for Liverpool. Klopp has elected to rotate his selection in this time and will almost certainly do so again as he tries to negotiate his team’s route to the next round of this competition and ensure his star players are all fit and available for next Sunday’s clash with Manchester City. It was a very disappointing end to December(and start to the New Year) for Sam Allardyce and his Everton team who failed to win any of their last four matches. Defeats to Bournemouth and Manchester United proceeded goalless draws with Chelsea and West Brom which put an end to what has been a pretty good start for the new manager, who had won two of his first three league games in charge. It’s a sign of how much more there is to do for Allardyce who would have been under no illusions as to the improvements needed to get Everton back challenging for the top six. Despite taking only two points from a possible 12 over Christmas and New Year, they do remain in the top 10 but are a full 17 points worse off compared to their weekend opponents, and city rivals, Liverpool – to give you an indication of the gap that exists. Allardyce and the club’s owners have not wasted anytime in trying to reduce that gap this transfer window with the likely signing of Cenk Tosun for £27m from Besiktas. Scoring goals has been the major problem in Everton’s season and the Turkish internationalist has been identified as being the man to solve that problem, and could be signed in time to feature on the bench.

Liverpool v Everton Betting Tip

It will have been just under a month since these two last faced each other, the league meeting which also took place at Anfield. That game ended 1-1 despite Liverpool’s dominance as a Wayne Rooney equaliser cancelled out Mohammed Salah’s opener. Salah will be injured for this one along with Philippe Coutinho and both are definitely going to be missed such is their quality. Klopp will be able to call upon Virgil Van Dijk who joined the club for a record transfer fee paid for a defender, at the start of this week. One signing alone will not solve all the defensive problems Liverpool have had under their manager but it’s a signal of their ambition that they plan to be challenging for titles rather than settling for a finish in the top four. Everton do not have the same injury problems to concern them but will be hoping that the change in competition can bring with it a chance in fortunes following recent poor results. Having played so many games in recent weeks, both clubs will be looking forward to getting a break from playing following this one but Friday’s match will determine how they go into that short break. Liverpool are big favourites to progress but no Salah and Coutinho may trouble their flow in the early stages. Everton will in all likelihood look to set up in a similar way to how they approached the league game last month by looking to contain. That may see the opening half being closer than expected so take there being more goals scored in the second half – a bet that has won in four of Liverpool’s last five games.

Liverpool v Everton Betting Tips: BTTS, 2018-01-05

FA Cup & League Cup Tips
LIVERPOOL v EVERTON Friday 5th January 2018 - Kickoff; 1955hrs Football - England - FA Cup Betting Tips The third round of the FA Cup starts on Friday night with a real cracker to start the proceedings with a merseyside local derby between Liverpool and Everton at Anfield, as the big guns join the lower league minnows in this round. Being in fourth place in the Premier League and some 18 points adrift of league leaders, Manchester City, Liverpool may be among a few of the top half of the Premier League who will take the FA Cup a little more seriously as another way of securing european football next season. The Reds stand a pretty good chance of going deep into this competition, but they’ll need to be on their game against a keen Everton side here. Liverpool still remain unbeaten on home turf in this regular season as they’ve fought on two fronts to date - league and Champions League, and they’ll need no motivation to be up for this clash either! Although Klopp may rotate his squad, this gives the fringe players a chance to nail down first team places. Everton come into this merseyside derby in much better shape than the start of the season as the incoming influence of manager, Sam Allardyce, has steadied The Toffees ship despite recent back-to-back defeats in the league to Bournemouth and Manchester United. Prior to the defeat at Bournemouth, Everton had put together a more promising run of four matches without defeat which included wins at Apollon in the Europa League, and a 1-0 win at Newcastle United, and they showed greater resilience in their last meeting at Anfield as they held Liverpool to a 1-1 draw. I think this game will be a more open affair, and I can see both teams hitting the back of the net again at good odds. Pick: Both teams to score @ 2.04 Unibet

Bournemouth v Everton Betting Tips: 2 AH+0.5, 2017-12-30

Premier League Tips
BOURNEMOUTH v EVERTON Saturday 30th December 2017 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips Eight matches without a win is a long time without success in the Premier League, and things don’t get any easier with a visit from Everton for today’s hosts, Bournemouth, when the two teams meet at the Vitality Stadium with the home side desperate to claw their way out of the bottom three. Defeats to Burnley, Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City are no disgrace as The Cherries have had to endure a tough set of fixtures recently, and although they picked up points in 2-2 and 3-3 draws with Crystal Palace and West Ham, Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe may well have pencilled in at least one of those games as a potential win for his side. A couple of months ago, Bournemouth may well have looked forward to a visit from Everton, but the landscape has changed dramatically up in the blue half of merseyside, while Bournemouth are without a win from their last four on home turf with an overall home record of  2-3-5  12/16. Onto Everton, and Big Sam’s revival at Everton continued over Christmas as The Toffees extended their unbeaten run in the Premier League to seven matches albeit with a couple of 0-0 stalemates either side of Christmas against Chelsea and West Brom respectively. Nevertheless, Everton will make their way down to the south coast in confident mood as they look to further improve an away record which stands at  1-5-4  7/17 which includes just one defeat from their last five on the road. Big Sam has stopped the bleeding, and Everton can look at this fixture with a potential three points to add to their tally, but I recommend keeping the draw on the visitor’s side here.

Everton v Chelsea Betting Tips: 1 AH+1, 2017-12-23

Premier League Tips
EVERTON v CHELSEA Saturday 23rd December 2017 - Kickoff: 1230hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips The early serving in the Premier League at Saturday lunchtime is an intriguing clash between fast improving Everton and an ever increasingly desperate Chelsea when the two teams clash at Goodison Park. Everton come into this encounter on the back of a promising five match unbeaten run where they’ve registered four wins, three of which have been under the watch of new manager, Sam Allardyce, who has started to transform the formerly ailing Toffees into a more confident and hard to beat outfit. Wins over West Ham, Huddersfield Town, Newcastle United and Swansea City have seen Everton lift themselves into the top half of the division in 9th place, and with an improving home record which now stands at  6-0-3  17/13 as well as a more cohesive unit, they stand a good chance of taking something from this match. Chelsea sit in third place and three points adrift of Manchester United as they make their way up to merseyside to take on an Everton outfit who they would have expected to beat fairly comfortably a couple of months ago, but the outlook has changed somewhat significantly in recent weeks. Although Chelsea have registered eight wins from their last ten overall in the Premier League, the recent 1-0 defeat at West Ham and 1-1 draw at Liverpool have left lingering doubts as to whether Antonio Conte’s men can step up another gear or two to catch Manchester City for the title. An away record of  6-1-2  18/7 including defeats at struggling Crystal Palace and West Ham suggest not, and an away match at Everton looks a far more difficult proposition now with the home side starting to click under Allardyce. Pick: Everton AH+1 @ 1.83 Marathonbet

Everton v Swansea City Betting Tips: 1, 2017-12-18

Premier League Tips
EVERTON v SWANSEA CITY Monday 18th December 2017 - Kickoff: 2000hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips Everton will look to continue their resurgence under manager Sam Allardyce on Monday night when they take on struggling Swansea City at Goodison Park with an unbeaten run of four league matches now under their belts. With three wins from these last four matches, which include victories over West Ham, Huddersfield Town and Newcastle United (all to nil I might add), The Toffees have well and truly pulled themselves out of any immediate danger of a relegation dogfight, and another three points this evening would see them move into 9th place and a point behind Leicester City. Everton’s home record now reads a much healthier looking  5-0-3 14/12 having won their last three on the trot at Goodison Park, and the belief and confidence amongst the squad is now very evident for all to see. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for a struggling Swansea City outfit who now find themselves bottom of the Premier League following another defeat on the weekend, where they were on the end of a 4-0 hammering against runaway league leaders, Manchester City. To be fair, Swansea would admit that they weren’t expecting to get anything out of that match, but it’s been their poor results against the teams around them down near the bottom end of the division that have really hurt them; defeats to Watford, West Ham, Brighton, Burnley and Stoke City and a draw at home against Bournemouth would have all been games that they’d have fancied taking at least a point from. As it is, they earned just the one in a 0-0 draw at home with Bournemouth, and although they beat West Brom at home recently, their away record stands at a poor  1-2-5  4/8, which includes losing their last five on the trot on the road.

Newcastle United v Everton Betting Tips: 2 AH+0.5, 2017-12-13

Premier League Tips
NEWCASTLE UNITED v EVERTON Wednesday 13th December 2017 - Kickoff: 1945hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips Newcastle United will be desperate to break out of their recent poor form on Wednesday night when they play host to Everton at St James’ Park in what is fast becoming an emergency situation for the north-east club. Six defeats from their last seven have plunged Newcastle into the relegation dogfight as they sit in 16th place, just two league places and two points above the bottom three ahead of these midweek fixtures in the Premier League. As the ongoing saga of the ownership of the club rolls on behind the scenes at St James’ Park, The Magpies are finding life back in the top flight very difficult, not least due to manager Rafa Benitez being unable to strengthen his squad from when they achieved promotion from the Championship at the end of last season. Newcastle have lost their last three on the trot at home amidst an overall record of  3-1-4  9/11, including Saturday’s 3-2 defeat to Leicester City which dampened their 125 year celebrations somewhat. Everton continued their revival under new manager, Sam Allardyce, in Sunday’s merseyside derby away at Liverpool as they grabbed a valuable point in a 1-1 draw, and whilst at times it wasn’t pretty, and in the first half, extremely lethargic, The Toffees showed they’re made of sterner stuff in the second half. That’s now just one defeat from their last six matches overall in the Premiership, and the confidence and self-belief are now tangible within the squad and they now occupy a much more acceptable mid-table position. However, with an away record of  0-4-4  6/17, there’s plenty of room for improvement on the road, but they’ll fancy their chances against an increasingly nervous looking Newcastle United outfit here. Pick: Everton AH+0.5 @ 1.69 Bet Victor

Liverpool v Everton Betting Tips: BTTS, 2017-12-10

Premier League Tips
LIVERPOOL v EVERTON Sunday 10th December 2017 - Kickoff: 1415hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips Sunday afternoon brings us two local derbies of significant importance to all four teams involved, starting with the merseyside clash between Liverpool and Everton at Anfield. Liverpool come into this encounter on the back of a couple of high-scoring games as they saw off Brighton 5-1 away from home in the Premier League and then followed that up with a 7-0 trashing of Spartak Moscow at Anfield during the week in the Champions League. It’s a return to league action this Sunday though against an Everton side who have been hurting for the majority of this campaign so far, and undoubtedly have a point to prove to the red half of the mersey. But Liverpool have been in blistering form of late, scoring goals almost at will as they’ve collected five wins from their last six in the Premiership, with Mohamed Salah responsible for a large chunk of these. Everton make the short journey to Anfield with a little more belief and confidence than they would have if this local derby had come a couple of weeks or so earlier. Following Ronald Koeman’s departure, The Toffees gave former player David Unsworth a run as caretaker-manager, but it was always going to be a temporary appointment, despite a 4-0 win over West Ham. Enter Sam Allardyce back from retirement, and his presence has immediately lifted the blue half of Liverpool as his new side registered a 2-0 home win over Huddersfield Town and then recorded a convincing 3-0 win away at Apollon in the Europa League. It was too little too late for Everton on the european front however, but they now turn their attentions to the Premier League where they sit in mid-table, but will now go in search of their first away win of the season in order to improve an overall record of  0-3-4  5/16. With Liverpool’s free-scoring but unreliable defence along with Everton’s resurgence, I’ll back both teams to score here. Pick: Both teams to score @ 1.96 Unibet

Liverpool v Everton Betting Tip Liverpool and over 2.5 goals – 10th December 2017

Premier League Tips
Saturday 10th December 2017 Liverpool v Everton Football – England – Premier League The Merseyside derby is one of the most eagerly anticipated games of the English footballing calendar and this one is no different. Both Liverpool and Everton have had difficulties at times this campaign but there’s no doubt it’s the red half of the city who have more to shout about coming into this game. Liverpool are currently fourth and are unbeaten in their last six Premier League games, winning five of them, whilst Everton are very much at the beginning of their road to recovery under Sam Allardyce but they have won their last two in the league and will have sights on climbing the table as soon as possible. It’s been an excellent week for Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp as they have continued their good run of form in the Premier League by thumping Brighton 5-1 away from home last Saturday before thrashing Spartak Moscow 7-0 to ensure they finished top of their Champions League group in style. It appears they may be finding some consistency at long last which has been their major barrier in the earlier part of the campaign. There is a swagger and confidence about Liverpool in attack at the moment and more importantly, they are much more clinical and able to take advantage of their dominance in games. There remains work to do defensively, of course, but if they can maintain this level of scoring which is very much in keeping with the number of chances they create in the majority of their games, then they will continue to keep putting teams to the sword and maintain their place in the top four. The league looks well beyond on them but there is certainly plenty of optimism surrounding the club just now. Everton have had a disastrous campaign for the most part, both in the Premier League and in the Europa League. Ronald Koeman paid the price earlier in the season and his temporary replacement, David Unsworth, has also found it difficult to get this group of players. The Everton owners failed to get their first choice – at least – and have ended up going for the evergreen Sam Allardyce. It’s very likely that the former England manager will have a positive impact on the club’s fortunes but you have to question if he is the ambitious appointment that the owners and the supporters would have hoped for. Nevertheless, last weekend’s 2-0 win over Huddersfield was the perfect start for the new manager and although not present on Thursday night, his players recorded a comfortable 3-0 victory over Apollon to continue the winning run and extend it to three. It’s the first time that Everton have won three games in a row across all competitions in just over a year which highlights some of struggles they have had in that time. It’s hard to escape mentioning how much the club have spent in that time and the supporters will only hope that they are able to begin showing some of that expected quality on the pitch.

Liverpool v Everton Betting Tip

The week started with the news that these two will meet in January in the third round of the FA Cup giving us a third Merseyside derby of the season. That game will take care of itself in a month or so but there is plenty up for grabs when they clash at Anfield on Sunday. Liverpool are in a really good part of their season just now and their front four of Coutinho, Mane, Salah and Firmino now have the understanding and link up that we all expected for being four quality players. Everton have made some improvements in the last fortnight in terms of scoring goals as well as keeping clean sheets but they have faced three struggling teams so it’s hard to weigh up just how much improvement they have actually made. Allardyce will definitely make them harder to beat over time but this game may well come a bit soon for that change to really take effect. Liverpool have been devastating of late and the pace they have in their team is their main asset. The criticism levelled at their opponents has been the lack of pace and that may be a key difference on Sunday. They remain unbeaten at home as well with four wins and three draws, whereas Everton have the opposite record having failed to win any of their seven away games in the league, taking a total of just three points from them. The hosts were far too good when the two clubs met at Anfield earlier in the season and they can prove to be so again with goals also expected. Liverpool to win and over 2.5 goals in the game 8/11 @ Ladbrokes

Everton v Huddersfield Town Betting Tips: 1, 2017-12-02

Premier League Tips
EVERTON v HUDDERSFIELD TOWN Saturday 2nd December 2017 - Kickoff: 1500hrs Football - England - Premier League Betting Tips Everton enter a new era ahead of Saturday afternoon’s clash with Huddersfield Town, with manager Sam Allardyce coming out of retirement to become the new manager of the merseyside club, and his side were given a major boost in their last game. Everton registered a resounding 4-0 home win over fellow strugglers, West Ham, at Goodison Park  during the week which has provided some much needed relief from their relegation worries, and ‘Big Sam’ has been brought in to steady the ship. Allardyce has become well known for steering struggling Premier League clubs to safety, namely, Sunderland and Crystal Palace in former roles. Everton now sit in 13th place in the top flight with a home record of  4-0-3  12/12 and come into this encounter following back-to-back wins at Goodison Park with victories over Watford and West Ham, and they’ll be keen to get something against Huddersfield on Saturday. Onto Huddersfield Town then, and the west Yorkshire club slumped to a fourth defeat in five matches on Wednesday night when they were thrashed 5-0 away at Arsenal who clicked into gear at the Emirates Stadium in the second half. After an encouraging start to life in the Premier League which saw The Terriers pick up back-to-back wins over Crystal Palace and Newcastle United, and losing just once in their first six matches of their new campaign, The Terriers have registered just two league wins from their last 12 matches, which were both at their John Smith’s Stadium. Away form is crucial for any new team in the Premier League, and Huddersfield’s record on the road stands at a very fragile  1-1-5  3/16 and have lost their last four on the trot with defeats at Swansea City, Liverpool, Bournemouth and Arsenal, conceding a total of 14 goals and failing to score in reply. Pick: Everton to win @ 1.73 Unibet
