Although lots of people consider the Premier League to be interesting because of its big teams and star players, the true passion and charm of the competition lies in the clashes between mid-table teams.
In games where both teams think they can win, spectacle is guaranteed and we’re bound to see free-flowing attacking football. A good example of such a game from Day 3 of the Premier League is Everton-Stoke.
Premier League Betting Previews, Odds & Tips – Everton vs Stoke City
Since Stoke promoted in the PL, their games against Everton have been nothing but back-and-forth results, with wins on either sides. We can clearly recall an awesome 4-3 Stoke win last season with an incredible goal by Xerdan Shaqiri, who sadly is a doubt for Saturday’s game.
Stoke’s only point of this season comes from a 1-1 draw against newly-promoted Middlesbrough, after which they suffered a 1-4 defeat at home against Man City. Their ego is surely hurt after such a humbling defeat and they will be looking to repair their morale against Everton.
On the other side, Everton sits on 4 points after a win against West Brom and a 1-1 draw against Tottenham and seems in good form. Ross Barkley is the star of the season debut, looking confortable on the ball and always ready to create chances.
The team doesn’t miss John Stones very much just yet, but they will do so shortly, as soon as they face better attacking threats and more games.
This game is specifically hard to predict, due to the good quality of the two teams. Both have their chances to win, and we see a game with goals – not a lot, maybe over 1,5 , but most surely under 3,5.
If you’re looking for a scoring interval, we think 1-3 to be the sweet spot, also having good odds. Everton to score is another good idea you can try. Good luck!
