Everton and West Brom face off early on Saturday morning in the United States in an English Premier League showdown at Goodison Park. The last time these two squads faced off was in 2018 when they played to a 1-1 draw.
Everton FC had high expectations coming into this season they got the year off on the right foot against Tottenahm. The stats were pretty even for the two teams, but it was a 55th minute goal by Dominic Calvert-Lewin was enough to come away with the victory. Everton had 15 shots in that game including four of those that went on goal. In the middle of the week, Everton again had success in an EFL second round match against Salford City. In that game, Everton scored a goal in the 8th minute and added two more later in the game and that led to a victory. This is a game where Everton needs to get out to a fast start and really make life tough on the West Brom attack early.
On the other side of this matchup is West Bromwich Albion F.C.who really struggled in their first Premier League game of the season.against Leicester City. West Brom’s defense was actually good in the first half, but in the second half they struggled. West Brom gave up a goal in the 56th minute, and then two more goals by penalty kicks and that led to a 3-0 loss. West Brom did have another game this week in the second round in the EFL Cup against Harrogate Town and in that one they had no issue getting the job done winning 3-0.
Everton is the better team but I don’t feel comfortable betting them at this money. In this game I think West Brom is going to struggle to score. Everton’s defense is going to lockdown, and that will lead to this game going well under the total.
