Everton has spent a lot of money in the transfer window and they will look to so well this season as a result of it. The team will open their season at home against Stoke City in what should be a good game.
Everton has sold Lukaku for a lot of money and it seems as if the team has invested these funds well. Rooney will bring experience to the side and although he is not the player he once was, he will still be able to contribute greatly to the team. This team has also invested in other areas including the defense and the goalkeeper positions. The additions should make the team much stronger than before.
Stoke City, on the other hand, has not had a massive transfer window. This side will need to rely on the likes of Shaqiri and Crouch to lead their team again. This side plays some attractive football and they have done well in the past few seasons so I am interested in seeing how they play.
I think Everton will win this game. This side has improved a lot since last season and they are also at home. This should make things too hard for Stoke City. We are getting a decent price on this bet so I think it is the way to go in terms of betting on this game. As far as goals are concerned, both teams can score so both teams to score looks like a good bet. In addition to that, the over 2.5 goals is also an attractive bet since there are a lot of goal scoring talent on both sides.
