The match

Everton host Crystal Palace at Goodison Park for matchday 37 of the Premier League with the hosts entire season on the line as they look to fend off what would be a disastrous relegation. Arguably the biggest match in years for the Toffees, Everton likely need at least a point in this match to secure themselves Premier League football for the next campaign. The hosts sit two points clear of the drop zone in 16th-place with 36 points and only two matches remaining. An away trip to Arsenal to close out the season means that a positive result is crucial for Frank Lampard’s side with 17th-place Leeds and 18th-place Burnley lurking close behind. They will come up against a Crystal Palace team that have secured themselves a mid table finish with 45 points good for 12th in the standings. Patrick Viera has his Palace team playing well and the Eagles are now four matches unbeaten after a 1-1 away draw against Aston Villa in the previous match.

A 3-2 home loss to Brentford in the last match saw the Toffees blow two leads and finish with nine men, snapping a previous four match home unbeaten run. Everton has been much better at Goodison Park with an 8-2-8 record a significant improvement over their dreadful away record of 2-4-12. However, their opponents have been on a solid run of form away from home which has seen Palace take 10 points from their last six road matches. The oddsmakers have Everton listed as fairly significant favorites at around even money. This is likely a result of the situational spot they find themselves in, with their entire season seemingly boiling down to this one match. However, we can’t assume that the visitors will completely roll over and not put up a fight. Palace have been OK away from home, certainly not spectacular, but with Everton’s overall disappointing season, we can’t justify them being as heavy favorites as they are.

Key Statistics

  • Five of Everton’s last seven matches and five of Palace’s last six have seen under 2.5 goals.
  • Palace have scored in five straight matches against Everton and are unbeaten in their last three, with the most recent result a 4-0 win in the FA Cup.
  • Palace have had a solid second half of the season and have only lost two of their last nine away league matches.

The bet of our experts

We’re going to take Crystal Palace on the +0.5 Asian Handicap as our bet for this match. This works the same as a double chance bet, meaning a Crystal Palace win or draw will result in a winning wager. While Everton is sure to come out playing with an increased level of urgency, this price is simply too good to pass up for an in-form team against an Everton side that have not looked convincing under the management of Frank Lampard. Under 2.5 goals is another strong possibility with each team trending heavily towards unders in recent matches and the importance that the hosts will place on keeping a clean sheet.
