Competition: Premier League
Market: Under 3.5 goals
Odds: 4/11 @ 888sport
Desperate to try and make a return to winning ways this weekend, Everton will host a struggling Watford on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, while Everton might have opened the 2021/22 campaign enjoying a real purple patch, they now find themselves in the midst of a recent struggle. In their opening eight Premier League matchups so far this season, they have recorded four wins, two draws and two defeats, scoring 13 and conceding nine in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 14, the Blues open this weekend’s fixtures sat eighth in the standings and just a single point adrift of breaking into the top-four. However, as for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 1-0 loss against West Ham on home soil, Everton have managed to win just one of their previous five matchups across all formats. Likewise, it should also be noted that each of their last four Premier League contests have finished with under 3.5 goals.
As for the visitors, putting in what was a nightmare display when returning from the international break, Watford find themselves tipped as a leading relegation pick. In their opening eight Premier League matchups so far this season, they have recorded a pair of wins, one draw and five defeats, scoring seven and conceding 15 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of seven from a possible 24, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat 16th in the table and looking over their shoulder at the drop zone. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a drumming against Liverpool on home soil, Watford have failed to win any of their last four matchups across all formats, losing three of those outings. Likewise, it should be noted that Saturday’s guests have scored more than a single strike in just one of their previous nine matchups.
