Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Everton were able to get a 2-1 win over Lincoln City in the third round of the FA Cup at Goodison Park. This victory papered over the cracks built upon by losses in recent weeks.
Bournemouth were knocked out of the FA Cup by Brighton, who picked up a 3-1 win at the Vitality Stadium. This was the fourth consecutive game without a victory for the Cherries.
The reverse fixture between the two clubs produced a 2-2 draw at the Vitality Stadium. Bournemouth last visit to the Goodison Park saw them suffer a 2-1 defeat. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Bournemouth and Everton have been going through a very difficult period over the last few weeks. The two teams have been unable to find any sort of a momentum that would break a sequence of poor results. Bournemouth’s defence has been a major letdown while Everton have been unable to look beyond Sigurdsson and Richarlison for the goals. The two teams are closely matched coming into the game in terms of points, goals scored, table position, and recent form. Our preview would go with a draw.

Everton win odds: 1.75
Bournemouth win odds: 4.80
Correct Score odds
Bournemouth have been the worst performing defensive team over the last six matches after conceding an incredible 18 goals. Meanwhile, Everton are not far behind with 14 goals conceded during this period. Even though Marco Silva has been able to bring in players like Yerry Mina into the fold, there has not been an improvement from Everton. Meanwhile, Bournemouth have brought in Clyne from Liverpool on a loan deal but it is unlikely that one player will improve a terrible defence. Our correct score prediction would still go with a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
This game should ideally feature a large number of goals with the two teams having ended up conceding 32 goals in total over the last six matches. However, this aspect alone could end up making a difference with regards to the approach the two teams taking this game. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals due to the likelihood of a tough match.

First Goalscorer odds
Callum Wilson is the top scorer for Bournemouth with nine goals while Richarlison also has the same number of goals. Wilson has been subjected to transfer interest in recent weeks and Everton are likely to open the scoring by capitalising on the poor defensive performances of Bournemouth. Even though Richarlison has only scored one goal in his last six appearances, our first goalscorer prediction would back the Brazilian.
