What the bookies say?
Bookie Prediction: 7th
The bookies think it will be a similar story this season for Everton as they sit at 7th favourites for the Premier League at 125/1. You can get odds of 3/1 if you think they can go better than last year and crack the top six or if you are even more optimistic about their chances you can get 10/1 on them finishing in the top four.
Could this year be the first since 1995 Everton win a major trophy? They are 20/1 to win the FA Cup.
How do punters think they will fare?
Koeman’s men are the most popular pick to win the FA Cup with 16.6% of all bets on the market. Punters are also ploughing into them to break the top four; with easily the most bets at 29.8%, (The next most is Man City with 9%).
Regarding the Premier League outright market, Everton have actually been the third most backed side with a 10.8% share of bets behind Man City (19.3%) and Arsenal (14.1%).
Players to look out for?
One of the most active sides in the transfer window so far, Everton have been splashing the cash and their most expensive signing so far has been goalkeeper Jordan Pickford. The 23-year-old will be the number one at Goodison and is the 12/1 fourth favourite to claim the young player of the year award.
New signing Sandro Ramirez is 66/1 to be the Premier League top scorer and the returning Wayne Rooney Is 80/1. The record England goalscorer is also 100/1 to be player of the year.
Swansea have slapped a £50m price tag on Gylfi Sigurdsson’s head but the bookies still have him at 1/4 to be playing in Merseyside next season. Olivier Giroud has recently expressed his desire to continue at Arsenal but he it may not be up to him and he is 6/4 to make the move. Demarai Gray is 12/5 to leave Leicester for Everton and Andre Gray is 4/1 to follow Michael Keane out of the door at Burnley.
