England Premier League Prediction: Fulham – Everton (30-01-2024)
Everton have picked up 16 of their 27 points away from home this season, although they have picked up most of their points at Goodison Park in the past. The style of play under Sean Dyche, where the team plays more simply, has proved to be particularly effective away from home.
|England Premier League Predictions: Fulham – Everton: Everton +0.25 Asian Handicap @ 1.72
Fulham, like Everton, are a team that likes to play on the counter-attack and stand a little further back on the pitch, but we can't see Everton being interested in that in this game.
Fulham plays a big and important EFL Cup semi-final on the 24th against Liverpool, and already on the 27th, three days before this showdown, they face Newcastle in the FA Cup.
Although both games are at home at Craven Cottage, the tight fixture schedule will be tough on the Fulham squad, which doesn't have the width to play three crucial games in a week. In addition, Calvin Bassey and Alex Iwobi have traveled to the AFCON, putting further pressure on the narrow squad.
Everton played their FA Cup match on the 17th at home to Crystal Palace and, therefore, have 13 days to prepare for this fixture.
Everton played 0-0 at home against Aston Villa on the 14th of January, where the team looked like themselves again after a series of poor results over the busy Christmas and New Year schedule.
The team has lacked the final energy required by their intense style of play, but the team can bring this given the 13-day build-up to the game. Furthermore, the long build-up also means that you should expect Calvert-Lewin to start up front for Everton, which is essential as Beto is an apparent weakness.
The odds have been increasing on Everton, which is weird. We should care less about the poor results over Christmas than the market seems to. At the same time, Fulham hasn't been impressive recently, so that's why Everton looks like the better team.
We find clear value in Everton when considering the very different line-ups for the match. The match seems like an even match, and at current prices, the value is, therefore, on Everton.
