Everton v Leicester Betting Tips & Predictions

Everton are narrow 16/11 favourites for their Saturday evening match against Leicester, with the Foxes sitting just three points behind the Toffees in the bottom half of the Premier League.

Leicester have improved massively over the last few weeks, with the pressure easing on Brendan Rodgers. 

They are still in the relegation zone coming into this round of fixtures, though, and face an Everton team with just one defeat from its last five home league matches.

Ben Godfrey, Yerry Mina and Andros Townsend are long-term absentees for the hosts. T

he same goes for Ricardo Pereira and Ryan Bertrand for the visitors. Jonny Evans remains a doubt, but Wilfred Ndidi might be available to start. 

Total Goals: Under 2.5

6/7 (Sport Nation)

Leicester leaked goals at an alarming rate earlier in the season, but their expected goals conceded always suggested an improvement at that end of the pitch was around the corner. That has happened, with the Foxes conceding just three goals in six league matches.

Goalscoring remains a challenge for Everton, who have failed to find the net in three of their last four. Frank Lampard’s side have seen under 2.5 total goals in nine of their 13 Premier League fixtures. 

Total Cards: Over 3.5

7/10 (Unibet)

David Coote has been named as the referee for this fixture, and the Nottinghamshire native is a difficult official to judge. Having given out the second-most cards per match last season, he has shown the fewest cards in 2022-23.

Regardless of Coote’s statistics, cards are expected here. Everton will be fired up by a rowdy crowd under the lights, and they have been shown the most cards in the league this season. 

Both teams place in the top six when it comes to tackles per match. 

To Be Shown A Card: Anthony Gordon

4/1 (BetVictor)

Anthony Gordon already has six yellow cards to his name this season. No player has more, and only Ruben Neves can match that tally. 

Liable to make rash challenges, Gordon is a strong booking candidate again here as he is forced to track back to deal with Harvey Barnes and James Justin.
