Everton vs Leicester Betting Tips
Whisper it quietly, but Leicester City suddenly don’t look assured of a top four spot in the Premier League, with the Foxes restarting the season with draws against Brighton and Watford, with Brendan Rodgers’ side looking distinctly off the pace.
At the time of writing, Leicester are only three points clear of fifth-placed Wolves, while Manchester United and Tottenham will also look to enter the reckoning between now and the remainder of the campaign.
This represents a tricky assignment for the Foxes, with Jamie Vardy still yet to score since the restart, while James Maddison’s season continues to be erratic even if Harvey Barnes has well and truly stepped up to the plate.
We saw in the recent Merseyside derby that the Everton defence looks to be in tip-top condition, with the Toffees shutting out a Liverpool side who then rampaged against Palace to the tune of racking up four goals.
Carlo Ancelotti has always been a master when it comes to organising a defence and the Italian is getting a tune out of Mason Holgate and Michael Keane, with Tom Davies having been reinstated to the team and turning in some workmanlike displays.
Ultimately, we think these teams are evenly-matched and Everton could have the edge considering they have a slight home advantage. Only three of their fifteen matches at Goodison Park have ended in a defeat this season.
On the flip side, Everton haven’t been registering too many wins at their own stadium and we’ll therefore steer away from betting on the home win. Instead, our betting prediction is to back the Toffees on the Asian Handicap betting market.
The Premier League football odds look perfectly fair considering the stats that we’ve outlined and that means we will get money back should the game end in a draw.
