Everton 21/10

Note, odds quoted are an approximate average and are correct at the time of last update but are subject to change

Verdict:

Everton have lost each of their last 5 road trips and reasonably only solid home form has kept them out of trouble. On the face of it this could be an opportunity for Stoke but other than a home win over Arsenal back in August, the only other sides they have beaten at home are fellow relegation strugglers.

All in all it looks a tough call but I’ll go with over 2.5 goals as Everton should play with plenty of freedom given they look booked for a mid table finish.

Bet: Total goals over 2.5 at 11/10
