Saturday’s clash at Goodison Park pits together Everton and Arsenal, the two teams with totally different ambitions for the remainder of the season. Our sportsbook offers the best markets and bonuses for the English Premier League.
Let’s check the latest Premier league news, stats, injury reports, and Premier league lines for Everton vs Arsenal. We’ve got plenty of Premier league picks for you to consider.
Everton: Fighting to Avoid Relegation
Everton is having a disappointing season. They are in the relegation zone with two points fewer than the first salvation spot. Everton lost the last four games across all competitions. In the previous match, they lost 2-0 on the road against West Ham.
Everton has turned to former Burnley boss Sean Dyche as they look to climb out of the Premier League relegation zone. The 51-year-old impressed during almost 10 years at Turf Moor, guiding the Clarets to two promotions from the Championship and two top-half Premier League finishes on a modest budget.
He likes to be in control from the top to the bottom. He will work closely with the board and will try to take the pressure away from the board and bring the fans closer to the players. Everton is weaker now than when the transfer window started. The club earned $45m from the sale of Anthony Gordon to Newcastle, but their attempts to re-invest that cash and improve a squad in dire need of strengthening proved fruitless.
They left Dyche with an almighty task to keep them in the division and despite our great respect for his managerial skills, we don’t expect Everton to remain in the Premier League. Only the goal difference is keeping Everton above rock-bottom Southampton and things are likely to get worse before they get better with this clash followed by a derby at Anfield. So if you’re betting online, you should continue to fade them.
Arsenal: Great Run of Form
Arsenal is enjoying a superb season. They are leading the standings with five points more than Man City and a game in hand on the reigning champs. Arsenal was very active in the recent transfer window. They signed Jorginho, Leandro Trossard, and Jakub Kiwior and hope those three players will help the team win the first championship title in almost 20 years.
Gabriel Jesus, Reiss Nelson, and Emile Smith Rowe will not play in the upcoming game against Everton while Mohamed Elneny is doubtful. The Gunners are unlikely to show Dyche any mercy as they hunt a shock title triumph, with this early kickoff giving them the chance to restore an eight-point lead over Manchester City at the summit, so we will include them in our soccer picks and parlays.
Mikel Arteta will have his big hitters back in the squad after resting his top players last week against Man City. Arteta has a dilemma at left wing with Trossard pushing Gabriel Martinelli for a start. There was concern about Gabriel Jesus’ injury, but Eddie Nketiah has more than stepped up in his absence and is scoring goals for fun.
Everton vs Arsenal Head-to-Head
Everton has big problems in the attack. They scored only 15 goals in 20 league matches. Everton has been a bit of a bogey team for Arsenal in recent seasons, with the Gunners winning just three of the last eight meetings. Their record at Goodison is particularly bad, going four games without a win there, including a 2-1 defeat on their last visit. The Gunners have won eight of their 10 away games, scoring 20 goals in the process.

Everton vs Arsenal Picks and Prediction
The Gunners enter this clash as heavy favorites being priced at -230 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds while the goal line is set at 2½.
With Everton having lost eight of their last nine games, it’s no surprise to see them as outsiders. The Toffees’ lack of investment in January means there won’t be too many personnel changes. They will be forced to go all in and try to pull off the season as they are in desperate need of points. Arsenal will take advantage of Everton’s defensive struggles and should be able to cover the goal line on their own, so for better odds, we will combine the moneyline with the goals market.
The Arsenal are listed at -230 in our Vegas Premier League lines. This means that if you wager $100 on Arsenal, you have a chance to win $43. The Everton are +700, offering a chance to win $700 on a $100 wager. The implied probability attached to the betting lines gives Arsenal a 69.70% chance to win, with Everton at 12.50%.
