Premier League: Everton vs Sunderland

Everton vs Sunderland Betting Tip and Predictions. In the round 26 in Premier League, Everton host Sunderland at Goodison Park. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Everton vs Sunderland.

Everton stand at the 7th position in Premier League and they still have a chance to reach the Top 5 and play in Europa League next season. Home side is unbeaten in the last 8 Premier League matches and they will be fully motivated to continue with good performance and take another three points. The match against Sunderland should be easy for Everton, because visitors are standing at the bottom of the table and their performance is very poor, but only on the paper. Home side have to show that on the pitch. Home team smashed Bournmouth 6-3 at the beginning of the month, in the match where Romelu Lukaku shined and scored 4 goals. After that they played against Middlesbrough, but that game was finished without goals. In the first half of the season, Everton beat Sunderland 0-3 away and guess who scored all three goals!? Lukaku! Home side is a big favorite to win this game and they should win this one, but one interesting betting tip could be “Lukaku to score” (Odd is 1.66 at Bet365).

Sunderland stand at the bottom, but they still have a chance to avoid relegation, so until the end of the season they will be fully motivated in every match. The match against Everton maybe is not the perfect chance to earn some point, especially if we take a look on their injury list and see that they have many absences, but they have nothing to lose and will try to make a surprise. Few important players are injured, while Djilobodji is out due to suspension. The only shiny spot in Sunderland this season is their top scorer Defoe and only he could make something positive for visitors. After this game, they will play against Manchester City, so their schedule is not great, but after that will face Burnley (H), Watford (A) and Leicester (A), so they have to focus on those thee games which will be crucial in their relegation battle.

Team News

Home side missDominic Calvert-Lewin (4/0 m), Yannick Bolasie (13/1 m) and Muhamed Bešić (0/0 d).

Everton vs Sunderland Predicted Lineups

Everton: Robles, Coleman, Williams, Funes Mori, Baines, Davies, Gueye, Schneiderlin, Barkley, Lookman, Lukaku.
Sunderland: Pickford, Kone, O’Shea, Denayer, Gibson, Ndong, Larsson, Oviedo, Jones, Januzaj, Defoe.

Everton vs Sunderland Prediction

Home side play great in the recent period and they are big favorites to win this game. Visitors are big underdogs, but they have nothing to lose, so even defeat with one or two goals difference would a big success for them. I expect very interesting match and open between Everton vs Sunderland and at least three goals.

Everton vs Sunderland Betting Tip: over 2.5 goals @ 1.62 (Bet365)
