Everton v Crystal Palace betting tips – Toffees can’t be trusted after European match
Roberto Martinez’s team lost to the Eagles last season and it could be a similar story this time around
September 18th, 2014
Everton have been playing some excellent football this season although it was only last weekend’s victory at West Brom which saw them open their account for the season.
2-2 draws with Leicester and Arsenal were followed by a 6-3 humbling at the hands of Chelsea, with the defence looking vulnerable and we should also appreciate that the Toffees don’t have a big squad.
Therefore, we are going to swerve the 4/9 quote about a home win in this game, with Neil Warnock looking to get more from his Crystal Palace squad following last weekend’s goalless draw against Burnley which could have been a defeat if Scott Arfield had converted his penalty.
BetVictor go 17/2 about an away win and Warnock will be glad enough that Everton have a European date with Wolfsburg on Thursday night which should take its toll on the Toffees first team.
Having drawn 3-3 at Newcastle United recently, we can be under no illusions that the London side will go out in search of three points in this game, although there might be more of a safety-first approach.
Similarly, Everton have battened down the hatches after conceding so many goals, with a 2-0 win at The Hawthorns seeing Martinez’s men keeping things so much tighter.
We’re going to take a chance on the match ending all square, with odds of 7/2 making so much more appeal than the home win.
