Almost every year, the Premier League shows us a team battling not only the other 19, but also the second-year curse. That is the very difficult second season after a team gets promoted from the Championship.
This usually happens because their better players leave for other clubs, and their replacements either don’t fit in or require lots of time to do so – time which these teams usually don’t have.
Bournemouth vs Everton
Betting Odds At Football Betting Sites
Bournemouth 4.00 or 3/1 Draw 3.60 or 13/5 Everton 2.00 or 1/1
Bournemouth is this year’s example. After some great results last year that ensured that they stayed clear of the relegation battle, this year won’t be so easy. They currently have 4 points, from a 1-0 victory over fellow strugglers West Brom and a draw against Palace.
Bournemouth has to start winning points against higher reputation teams rather quickly, and Everton is the next such team that stands in their way. The other encounters (against the two teams from Manchester and West Ham) were very unsuccessful for Bournemouth.
Meanwhile, Everton is in fine form. 10 goals scored, only 3 conceded, 10 points, two consecutive games with 3 goals scored, 4 of which scored by Lukaku – what more can Everton wish for? Their great form should be able to continue, if not with a win, than at least with one point taken from this away game against Bournemouth.
Bournemouth vs Everton: Betting Tips
There are a lot of bets we can recommend for this game – starting with Everton to win. If this seems to complicated for you, bet that Everton will score, or Everton +0,5, essentially betting on them to not lose.
Also, since their opponents don’t have any great defenders, Lukaku is a big favorite to continue his great form and put his name on the scoresheet once again.
And, if you’re looking for a high-odd bet, go for Everton to win and over 2,5 goals – a feat which happened in both teams’ recent games.
