Everton has an opportunity to escape the relegation precipice this weekend when it hosts Wolverhampton at Goodison Park.
Everton and the Wolves have played each other six times in the past decade, with Everton edging these contests with two wins. Wolverhampton has taken a single win, while the remaining three matches all ended in draws. The Wolves have not managed a single away win during this period.
The Wolves’ last trip to Goodison Park ended in a 1-1 draw.
Everton’s nightmare season continues with just one win and six losses from its last seven games. The club’s solitary win came against Fulham, and this dire run of form has seen Everton sink to the verge of the relegation zone.
Everton looks a bit short of ideas up front, with just 6 goals scored in five matches. Defence has been in bad shape, letting in 9 goals during this run of fixtures.
The Wolves haven’t been in great shape either with seven losses, a draw and two wins to show for their last five matches. Wolverhampton has won just three Premier League matches this season, drawn two, and lost the remaining fixtures.
The Wolves have been quite solid up front, scoring 9 goals in their last five games. Defence has been the club’s downfall, with 13 goals conceded in the same period, with 9 of these inflicted by Man City in the space of two fixtures.
Everton’s form has been poor over recent months, but they’ll be targeting this match to begin their Premiership fightback.
The Wolves defence looks weak enough for even the uninspired Everton forwards to crack, although Everton will need to stay tight at the back to prevent the stronger Wolves strikers from getting on the board.
At the end of the day this match between two out-of-sorts clubs could go either way, but with Everton under huge pressure to get the result, we think the home side is more likely to edge the result, and our Everton vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers betting tip is to go with a lay bet on the visitors at Betfair.
