Both Everton and Bournemouth had a festive schedule to forget, “The Toffees” losing four of their five games, while “The Cherries” mustered just four-points from a possible 15. Everton now sit 11th in the table level on points with Bournemouth, a position Marco Silva will not have expected his team to be in at this stage of the season. The same can be said of Bournemouth after their bright start to the 2018/19 campaign. Form Labs bring you their betting preview and tips for the game and while here why not check out our selection of enhanced odds for the Premier League.
Bournemouth On The Slide
It’s been something of a horror show from Bournemouth recently and as much as Eddie Howe likes to deploy an attacking brand of football, he must surely be tearing his hair out at some of the slapstick defending on offer.
It’s now 10 defeats from 13 matches across all competitions and although seven of these came against ‘Big Six’ opponents, it’s not merely been a case of spectacular offensive displays from quality opponents.
Most recently, they shipped three goals hosting Watford and then Brighton in the FA Cup, the first time in 28 trips since October 2017 across all competitions where the Seagulls have netted more than twice.
Everton Looking To Avoid Third Straight Loss
Everton may not have been prolific of late, drawing blanks in 1-0 defeats away against the same opponents at the Amex as well as at home to Leicester, but each of their previous four games saw at least four goals in total.
Indeed, that clash with the Foxes was the first time they’d failed to net at Goodison Park this season, and they should more than fancy their chances of racking up a few goals with only an abject Fulham backline conceding more on their travels than the Cherries this term.
Everton v Bournemouth Betting Tips
Although the Toffees should experience little in the way of resistance going forwards, their own defence is hardly watertight either as their last clean sheet came against Cardiff back in November.
They’ve conceded 14 times across their last six outings, with Spurs and City accounting for nine of those, while aside from the Bluebirds only Palace and Fulham have been prevented from registering at Goodison.
Given Everton have taken maximum points in three home encounters with Bournemouth since the latter’s promotion, but conceding in each, the home win and both teams to score looks the way to go.
