Match Betting (1x2)

Everton are trading at odds-on with every bookmaker to beat Watford on Saturday. This is a match where Marco Silva comes up against his former club and he’s expected to engineer a win for the Toffees, with bookmaker bet365 offering odds of 4/6 about a home victory at the time of writing.

The Hornets were booed off the Vicarage Road pitch after a mediocre performance in their Premier League opener against Brighton, with Javi Gracia’s side losing the game 3-0 and perhaps they’re paying the price for a failure to acquire new players this summer.

The visitors are available at around the 4/1 mark to win on Merseyside and the manager will be hoping for a reaction from the players or they’ll be staring at the fact that they have zero points from two matches.

This match was an exciting affair last season and finished in a 2-2 draw, with bet365 offering 3/1 that this one ends all square again and this outcome would certainly please Watford more than Everton.

First Goalscorer

Richarlison followed Silva to Goodison Park and it was a 20-goal haul for the Brazilian if you include international matches, with the 22-year-old heading the First Goalscorer market for this weekend’s match.

The former Watford forward is trading at a general 9/2 to score the opener, although perhaps Gylfi Sigurdsson should be the alternative pick considering that the attacking midfielder will be on penalties.

You can get 11/2 about the Icelander and he gets into some excellent positions to score, while Bernard is trading at a meaty 13/1 with Paddy Power to break the deadlock.

Watford seem to be lacking a cutting edge and it could be that Troy Deeney plays as the lone front man in this clash, with the Hornets captain trading at 9/1 to score the first goal of the game.

Both Teams to Score

This is a straightforward betting market, with customers simply needing to bet on whether you think both teams will score or alternatively at least one team will fail to score.

Bookmaker bet365 think it’s marginally more likely to see both teams find the net than not at Goodison Park, offering 3/4 about Yes compared to even money about No.

BetVictor offer a slightly bigger 5/4 about No and it should be noted that both sides failed to score in their respective opening matches.

Over / Under Goals

The bookies anticipate that the net will bulge a few times at Goodison Park, with Over 2.5 Goals trading at odds-on and bookmaker bet365 are currently offering 8/11 about three goals or more being scored.

Alternatively, Under 2.5 Goals is available at 11/10 with the same firm and it has been noted that Everton stubbornly prevented Crystal Palace scoring at Selhurst Park despite being reduced to ten men.

Watford might also go back to basics and look to scrap their way to a goalless draw, with Under 1.5 Goals trading at 3/1 for those that think it could be a decent shout.

Correct Score

We thought that the Hornets attack looked pretty toothless against Brighton, with Michael Keane and Yerry Mina capable of preventing them from scoring again and that leads us to consider a winning scoreline for Everton.

Bet365 offer 15/2 about a 1-0 victory for the Toffees, while you can get 17/2 with BetVictor that we see a 2-0 win for Marco Silva’s side and a 3-0 win is available at 14/1.

You can get 7/1 about a 1-1 scoreline and bet365 have 14/1 about a 3-1 victory for the Toffees.
