Everton vs Crystal Palace Tips

Betting Tip: Crystal Palace Over 9.5 Fouls Conceded

This is a huge match down at the foot of the table as Everton go looking for a win ahead of their final day match away to Arsenal. The ‘Toffees’ welcome Crystal Palace to what is sure to be a loud Goodison Park and a prop angle takes my interest here.

The ‘Eagles’ have committed an average of 11.6 fouls per match in their last five away matches and have conceded at least 10 fouls in four of their last five road fixtures.

Meanwhile, Everton have now picked up as many red cards as they have wins under Frank Lampard and their recent games have been fiery encounters. In the hosts' last five home league matches, four of them have witnessed the opposition commit at least 10 fouls and with so much on the line, I can see Anthony Taylor putting his spray to use on a number of occasions.

I’d have this line at around 11.5 and so the fact it’s currently at 9.5 makes it all the more appealing. I’ll have 1.5 points on this prop play.

Crystal Palace Over 9.5 Fouls Conceded - 1.5pts @ 8/11

Betting Tip: BTTS & Over 2.5 Goals

Everton lost their last home fixture against Brentford after seeing two straight red cards, but they were still able to score twice and they’ll hope they can get the better of a Crystal Palace side who have nothing but pride to play for.

The hosts have scored in nine of their 12 home matches since the turn of the year and they have to go for it, as pinning their survival hopes on a final day victory away to Arsenal could prove disastrous. I think Everton can score a couple but I just don’t trust them not to concede.

Frank Lampard’s side have been vulnerable to attacks from out wide, particularly against sides playing a 4-3-3 formation - which it looks as though the visitors could deploy. They’ve already conceded goals to Phil Foden, Harvey Barnes and Yoane Wissa lately and they all occupied a place on the flank.

Eze could be a shout for anytime goalscorer but I think Everton wins whilst conceding and so I’ll play it a bit safer by having a point on both teams scoring and at least three goals being scored.
