Everton vs Wolves betting tips: Premier League preview & prediction

Everton vs Wolves 101 Great Goals prediction: Everton 1-1 Wolves

Both Everton and Wolves featured in cup competitions during the week but will have to revert their focus back to the Premier League this weekend.

Starting with the former, Marco Silva’s Toffees made hard work of what looked to be a routine win against Lincoln in the Carabao Cup.

After fielding almost their best team possible, Everton struggled to make their dominance count and conceded two goals.

Despite that, late goals from Alex Iwobi and Richarlison saw the Toffees progress to the next round.

Opponents Wolves also found cup success in the Europa League this week.

Nuno Espírito Santo’s side faced off against Torino on Thursday night and progressed to the group stage of the competition after winning 5-3 on aggregate.

Now, they’ll be looking to secure their first Premier League win in a game which could play a big part in the top six race this season.

Everton vs Wolves: Who will win?

Due to Everton’s home advantage and Wolves having played on Thursday, the Toffees go into this clash as the favourites.

Marco Silva’s side go into the game at odds of 6/5 to win.

Meanwhile, Wolves are priced at 5/2.

A draw, which we predict, is priced at an attractive looking 9/4.

Going one further, a 1-1 draw is priced at 11/2.

If you’re confident of Everton keeping another clean sheet at Goodison Park, both teams not to score is priced at 4/5, whereas both teams to score is 19/20.

Moving onto the goal scorers market and Everton dominate the top of the list.

Richarlison is the favourite to score first following his goal against Lincoln on Wednesday.

He’s priced at 5/1 to net the first goal.

Cenk Tosun and Moise Kean then follow, both priced at 11/2.

Wolves’ strikers come after them, with Raúl Jiménez and Patrick Cutrone both priced at 6/1.

Diogo Jota, priced at 8/1 for first goalscorer, could be a brilliant option after he terrorised Everton the last time he was at Goodison.

Elsewhere, if you’re feeling ambitious, Lucas Digne is priced at 18/1 to score first and after showcasing his free-kick skills on Wednesday, could be an outside option.

Everton’s victory against Lincoln on Wednesday night may have seen them through to the next round of the Carabao Cup, but it wasn’t exactly a positive performance.

Lincoln managed to emphasise just how much work Marco Silva and his side have to do this season if they want to be top-six contenders.

Despite fielding a side that is likely to start in the Premier League this weekend, barring a couple of tweaks, Everton struggled.

The Toffees dominated proceedings in terms of all statistics but at times, even looked like losing the game.

Lincoln took the lead after just 23 seconds, emphasising Everton’s defensive struggles away from home.

Marco Silva’s side did hit back through Lucas Digne and Gylfi Sigurdsson, but then suffered a sucker punch in the form of a Lincoln equaliser.

It almost knocked the wind out of their sails, with the League One side actually looking the more likely team to score a winner initially.

Thankfully for the Toffees, newboy Alex Iwobi and star man Richarlison scored late to secure their place in the Carabao Cup third round.

If Everton are serious about being top six or even top four contenders in the near future, they have to be more ruthless and clinical.

Should they perform like that against Wolves this weekend, they could be punished much more than they were by Lincoln.

Can Wolves finally break the Toffees’ impressive home record?

Despite Everton’s poor midweek performance, the Toffees are a challenge for any team when playing at Goodison.

They haven’t actually conceded a goal at Goodison since the 6th February.

Those goals came against Man City, but the game before it was actually Wolves who scored three at the historic ground.

Now, they’ll be looking for another impressive Goodison performance coming off the back of their Europa League progression.

Unfortunately, it may be another tough ask.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have been playing almost every midweek for a while now and it’s taking its toll in the Premier League.

Wolves are yet to win a game this season, though their performance against Manchester United was impressive.

Other results have included draws against Leicester and Burnley in their last outing but they needed a late goal from Raul Jimenez just to salvage a point.

Now, if Wolves are to get their first win of the season under their belts, they’ll have to push through the fatigue they may suffer after their clash with Torino.

Everton team news vs Wolves

It’s good news for Everton this week.

The Toffees have no fresh injury concerns after their clash with Lincoln.

However, they will be without Jean-Philippe Gbamin still.

The summer signing sustained an injury prior to the game against Aston Villa and is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Wolves team news vs Everton

It looked as though Wolves also came through their midweek clash unscathed.

As a result, Nuno Espirito Santo should have his full squad to pick from.
