Everton v Manchester United Premier League Betting Tips 09/04/2022
Everton vs Manchester United is a match that could define the season for each club. The Toffees have been one of the major disappointments of 2021/22 as they sit perilously close to the Premier League’s drop zone. United have been equally under-par and their hopes of a top-four finish are hanging in the balance after some poor recent form. Everton and United desperately need to turn their fortunes around, but they are running out of time. This match kicks off at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday at Goodison Park and it will be shown live on BT Sport.
Everton gave up a 2-1 advantage and eventually lost 3-2 at Burnley in midweek. The defeat leaves Frank Lampard’s side just one point above the relegation places. Also, the Toffees are now on a three-match losing streak in all competitions and they have one win in six. Man United drew 1-1 against Leicester at Old Trafford last weekend, a result which dented their top-four hopes. One Premier League win in four leaves the Red Devils three points off the Champions League places.
For the team news, Everton’s Allan and Michael Keane served their suspensions and they will return to the squad. But Andros Townsend (knee), Tom Davies (thigh), Yerry Mina (thigh), Andre Gomes (knock), Donny van de Beek (thigh) and Nathan Patterson (ankle) remain sidelined. United trio Jesse Lingard, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luke Shaw could return to the squad but Edinson Cavani is out with a calf injury.
Matchwinner Bet Odds
Firstly, the matchwinner odds for Everton vs Man United make for interesting viewing. Ultimately, United are the standout favourites after winning two of their last four away matches in the Premier League. SBK currently have the best odds for an away win at 5/6. An Everton win seems a long shot, even with their home advantage. The Toffees have lost ten of their last 12 Premier League matches, five of which came at Goodison Park. As a result, SBK are offering odds as long as 37/10 for a home victory. However, with both sides in patchy form and desperate for some points, a draw is our pick. With four draws in their last eight on the road in the Premier League, United have become the top-flight draw specialists. Also, Everton have a strong recent head-to-head record over the Red Devils, recording four draws in their last six meetings. Due to this, we are picking SpreadEx’s 3/1 odds for our matchwinner result this weekend.
BTTS Betting – Yes
Clean sheets have been rare for Everton and Man United in recent weeks so there is value on picking BTTS to go with a draw. Everton has failed to keep a clean sheet in their last seven and they have seen goals at both ends in their last two. United have also seen BTTS regularly away, with goals coming for both teams in their last six Premier League games on the road. In addition, five of the last six meetings have produced BTTS yes and SBK have the best odds in this market at 5/6.
Opportunities can arise in this match for players on both teams given the two side’s poor defensive records. United will be boosted by Cristiano Ronaldo’s return from illness this weekend and the Portuguese was in good form before the international break. Ronaldo netted a hat-trick in the 3-2 win over Spurs before the break and VBet will return 9/8 odds for the forward to strike against Everton in the Premier League this weekend. But our goalscorer pick for this fixture is Everton’s Richarlison. The Brazilian was back amongst the goals on Wednesday, netting a brace against Burnley. Richarlison is the Toffees’ top scorer with six this season and he always carries a goal threat for the Merseyside club. Due to this, our tip is to go with VBet’s 15/4 odds for a Richarlison anytime goal.
