Everton vs Newcastle in the Premier League on Mar 17. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Everton vs Newcastle in the Premier League on Mar 17. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

After another defeat at the weekend, Everton still find themselves languishing just outside the relegation zone and were it not for the failures of Burnley in recent times, the Toffees would be in the bottom three instead.

While they will look to move further away from the pack below on Thursday, as they play host to Newcastle and with the Magpies suffering a first defeat in 10 on Sunday, Eddie Howe’s men are aiming to return to winning ways in midweek.

Newcastle To Win

Win this encounter on Thursday and Newcastle will be all but safe from the threat of Premier League relegation and if that does prove to be the case, it will only serve to heap more pressure on Everton.

With this potential outcome in mind, I have looked at all the best online betting sites, in order to find the best possible price and for those who also think that Newcastle will win, I have just the odds for you.

A rather simple but tempting price all the same and with me predicting more misery for Everton on Thursday night, I can also highlight odds of 11/5 (bet365) for Newcastle to come out on top.

Everton Form, squad news, opinion

There is no doubt that things are looking bleaker by the week for Everton and suffering a 1-0 home loss to Wolves on Sunday, there are serious questions regarding the appetite of this current Goodison crop.

At the same time, you could also ask questions about Everton’s aptitude as well and with Frank Lampard’s men failing to bounce back after a miserable showing at the start of last week, it means it is four straight league losses for the Toffees.

The third of that successive run was at the hands of Tottenham last Monday and after such an abject showing in North London, supporters would have at least hoped for something in the way of a response last Sunday.

A response that failed to materialise and with Watford also getting the better of Southampton that same Sunday afternoon, it now means that the Hornets are now level on points with the team that is just one place above them in 17th.

Which means Everton, Watford and Burnley are separated by just a single point at present and although the former of this trio have games in hand over the latter two, there is no indication that league points will also follow.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the visit of Newcastle, Everton boss Frank Lampard is once again without a trio of players before Thursday’s clash and this means Yerry Mina, Tom Davies and Fabian Delph will be unavailable for selection.

Newcastle Form, squad news, opinion

Although all league runs must come to an end at some point, Newcastle will be furious at the manner in which their impressive streak ended on Sunday and after being edged out by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, there are once again questions being asked of the officials.

Because in a game where they were denied a clear penalty in the second half, it was also an encounter that should have seen Chelsea’s Kai Havertz given his marching orders before the interval.

With the German forward only given a caution after elbowing Newcastle’s Dan Burn, he then added insult to Newcastle injury by scoring Chelsea’s winner in the last sixty seconds of the game.

A bitter pill to swallow for Newcastle, one that they simply did not deserve to digest and although it was an incredibly frustrating afternoon in West London, the players should look at the positives since the start of 2022.

With even a top-ten finish not out of reach, this Newcastle team have been transformed and although there are still some concerns regarding relegation at the end of the season, those fears should end up unfounded.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the trip to Everton, manager Eddie Howe’s injury list has grown somewhat in the past week and with the trio of Kieran Trippier, Eddie Howe and Issac Hayden already unavailable, the Magpies boss is also sweating on the fitness of Joelinton.

History

When it comes to the rivalry between Everton and Newcastle, it is one that goes back decades and with their fortunes towards the bottom of the table being witnessed by all this season, there will certainly be no love lost when the two sides meet on Thursday.

In terms of their overall head-to-head record, Everton have won on 74 occasions, Newcastle 69 and there have been 36 draws

About the Venue

The good thing about Goodison Park is that it can be a rather inhospitable place for away teams to travel to. Unfortunately, it has also become a rather inhospitable place for Everton in recent weeks as well.

With COVID-19 restrictions being lifted in England, it means there is no longer the need to show a Vaccine Passport before attending the ground. Which means, match tickets are the only item that is required to be produced at the time of writing.

Conclusion

When it comes to the Premier League relegation odds, Everton’s continue to tumble at quite a pace and for those who did not back the Merseyside men for the drop at the start of February, they have likely missed out on any real value.

While for those who backed Newcastle to be relegated, their bets in the first half of the season are looking like losing ones and with each weekend that passes, the Magpies move further away from potential demotion.
