Everton vs Newcastle betting tips: Premier League preview & predictions

Everton vs Newcastle 101 Great Goals prediction: Everton 2-1 Newcastle

Everton will be looking to continue their fine league form under Carlo Ancelotti, while Steve Bruce’s Newcastle will look to build on their Chelsea win.

The Toffees have been pretty impressive since Ancelotti took over.

They have lost just one league game during his time in charge, a 2-1 defeat to Manchester City.

Everton’s performance against West Ham was less than impressive, but they managed to escape with a 1-1 draw.

Now, they’ll be looking to continue a run of good form against Newcastle.

The Magpies have had a very up and down season so far.

They recently went on a run of four games without a win, but broke their duck with a victory over Chelsea last weekend.

If they can reproduce that Chelsea performance on Tuesday night, they could easily walk away with three points again.

Everton vs Newcastle: Who will win?

Despite their lacklustre performance against West Ham in their last outing, Everton go into this game as heavy favourites.

They are priced at an extremely short 1/2 to get the win at Goodison.

Meanwhile, Newcastle are heavy outsiders despite their impressive win over Chelsea.

They go into the game at 5/1 to come away with all three points.

A draw is priced at 10/3.

Our pick would actually be both teams to score and an Everton win, priced at 12/5.

With the Toffees’ odds to simply win pretty short, there is much better value in that selection.

Both teams to score and a draw is also priced at 9/2 and could be a good option if you don’t fancy Everton to win.

In the goalscorer odds, there are a number of options.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is the favourite to score first at 23/10, followed by Richarlison at 14/5.

Bernard represents good value at 13/2, while Alex Iwobi, who should return to the squad, is priced at 17/5.

Newcastle’s most likely player to score first according to the bookmakers is Andy Carroll, priced at 10/1.

He’s then followed by Joelinton, who recently broke his St James Park goal duck in the FA Cup.

For us, your best option may be Calvert-Lewin.

He and Richarlison are Everton’s only source of goals recently, and Calvert-Lewin will likely be pivotal in winning aerial duels.

Everton vs Newcastle match preview

The Toffees have looked quite solid since Carlo Ancelotti took over.

Everton have only lost one league game during his tenure, and that was in a very difficult fixture against Manchester City at the Etihad.

Close wins over Burnley, Brighton and Newcastle have seen the Toffees go from relegation contenders to top-six contenders in a matter of weeks.

Though, their performance against West Ham certainly put a damper on things.

Everton were favourites going into the game, even if it was by a slim margin, and they didn’t quite live up to that.

West Ham were the better team and deservedly took the lead through an Issa Diop header.

Thankfully for Ancelotti and the travelling Everton fans, the ball fell to Dominic Calvert-Lewin just one yard out and he headed home to make it 1-1.

After a lacklustre second half, the Toffees managed to come away with a point.

If Everton are to break Newcastle down this weekend, they need to perform an awful lot better offensively.

Can Steve Bruce keep the Toffees out?

Newcastle really needed that win over Chelsea.

They were certainly not the better team, but Steve Bruce’s side dug deep to grind out a dramatic last-gasp win.

Chelsea actually had a whopping 70% possession, as well as 19 attempts on goal.

Though, they were unable to break down a resolute Newcastle defence that we haven’t seen enough recently.

Before the Chelsea game, Newcastle had lost three and drawn once in their last four.

They drew with Wolves, following losses to Manchester United, Everton and Leicester.

Those results put a dampner on what looked to be a very positive season.

Despite their poor form, Newcastle are now 12th after their recent win and just five points off Manchester United in fifth.

There’s still so much to play for this season, and three points this week could be potentially huge.

Everton team news vs Newcastle

Everton have suffered a raft of injuries so far this season.

Jean-Philippe Gbamin and Andre Gomes have both suffered long-term injuries and while they are approaching their returns, this game will come too soon.

Alex Iwobi has been out since suffering an injury against Burnley on Boxing Day, but should return to the squad on Tuesday.

Everton also suffered two fresh injuries in the build-up to the West Ham game.

Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson both missed the game in London.

Both were minor issues according to Carlo Ancelotti in the build-up to that game, so they should return at Goodison.

Newcastle team news vs Everton

Newcastle have also struggled with injury this season.

Andy Carroll has missed plenty of game time this season due to his injury problems.

He could return against Everton, though.

Dwight Gayle, DeAndre Yedlin, Ki Sung-Yeung and Paul Dummett will all miss the game.

The big blow for Newcastle will no doubt be Jetro Willems’ injury against Chelsea.

The defender was stretchered off and on Monday was confirmed out for the season.
