Southampton vs Everton

Southampton vs Everton Prediction

  • Over 2.5 goals have been scored in the last 4 Everton premier league games.
  • 5 of the last 6 meetings between these two have ended with over 2.5 goals.
  • Southampton have scored 2+ goals in their last three home games.
  • Everton have scored 2+ goals in each of their last four games

TIP 1: BTTS and over 2.5 goals

Two of the more entertaining sides meet on the South coast on Super Sunday and it should be a cracker given the goal threats both have. Danny Ings and Dominic Calvert-Lewin have been in great nick and the England pair will be hoping to add to their healthy tally and with neither defence convincing we can expect chances for the strikers in what should be a goal-filled game. 

We can back both teams to score and over 2.5 goals at even-money and that looks a nice way in as any result wouldn’t be overly surprising. James Rodriguez was ruled out by Carlo Ancelotti midweek however he trained on Friday and could be involved for the visitors which would be a boost, his link up with the likes of Calvert-Lewin, Doucoure and Richarlison has been excellent.

Expect plenty of pressing from the hosts that could unsettle Everton centre halves Michael Keane and Yerry Mina who aren’t the best on the ball, you’d expect Ralph Hassenhuttl to tell his players to employ a shoot-on-sight policy to test the out of form Jordan Pickford too.

BTTS and over 2.5 - 2pts @ 1/1
