Everton Betting Preview
Everton comes into this game sitting in 19th place in the standings having picked up 15 points. Everton has had an awful season and they need to start picking up some points or they won’t be in the Premier League next season. In the last game against West Ham, the defense was awful giving up two goals and that led to the defeat. Everton had 68 percent of the possession but only managed two shots on goal, and couldn’t find the back of the net. This is the first game for Sean Dyche of being in charge, and this is going to be quite the test. Andros Townsend and Nathan Patterson are both dealing with injuries right now and they aren’t going to be able to go in this game.
Arsenal Betting Preview
On the other side of this matchup is Arsenal who sits in 1st place in the standings having picked up 50 points. Last Friday, Arsenal faced off against Manchester City in the FA Cup and they were defeated 1-0. Arsenal had 46 percent of the possession and only two shots on target. On the 22nd of January, Arsenal faced off against Manchester United and they were able to secure the 3-2 victory. Arsenal has brought in Mohamed Elneny but he’s dealing with a knee injury and it’s expected that he’s going to be out long-term. Gabriel Jesus, Reiss Nelson, and Emile Smith Rowe are all dealing with injuries and it doesn’t look like they are going to be able to play in this game.
Shane’s Free Pick
Dyche is known for his defense, but even that isn’t going to help much against this Arsenal offense. Arsenal is an elite offensive team and they are going to score two or three goals here. Everton’s offense is going to have no answer, and that is going to be the difference here as Arsenal gets the job done. Back Arsenal -1.5 to cash here.
