Goodison Park prepares to host the game between Everton and Cardiff City just after the international break. Everton find themselves just a few places below the top six with Marco Silva’s men finding a sweet spot in terms of form. Cardiff are close to getting out of the drop after a magical set of results – in key home matches. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Everton became only the fourth team to prevent Chelsea from winning a league game this season, as they held Maurizio Sarri’s men to a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge. Silva’s men have had some commendable results this season.
Cardiff City are now away from safety spots only on goal difference after a late 2-1 success over Brighton at home. This was also the second win in the last three matches at home for Neil Warnock’s men.
Everton were able to register a 2-1 success over Cardiff when these two teams last met at Goodison Park – back in 2014. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Everton.

Cardiff are at an incredible price of 7.00 to win this match. The Bluebirds have travelled to the Goodison Park only once in Premier League history. Warnock’s men find themselves in a great spot to mark a second consecutive league win. However, the club are likely to struggle against a quality opposition like Everton – especially away from home. Everton have been playing good football over the last few weeks and the international break came at the wrong moment for the blues. However, home advantage makes our preview go with a win for Everton.

Everton vs Cardiff City draw odds: 4.75
Cardiff City win odds: 7.00
Correct Score odds
Everton have been able to register three consecutive league victories at Goodison Park. They have found it enormously comfortable against relegation threatened teams like Fulham and Crystal Palace in these matches. Cardiff have been a decent threat going forward but they may struggle to come up with goals against Everton, who have been strong at the back. Our correct score prediction would go for a 2-0 win for Everton.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Cardiff have been able to produce a decent performance going forward owing to the likes of Josh Murphy and Paterson. However, the team may struggle to break down Everton’s strong defence. The international break may have broken up Everton’s momentum, but it may not be too much of an issue. The likes of Richarlison and Sigurdsson are key factors behind Everton’s recent form. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals since the visiting team are not expected to contribute.

First Goalscorer odds
Everton had just one shot on target in the recent match against Chelsea. However, the club are expected to have more opportunities against Cardiff. Both Gylfi Sigurdsson and Richarlison ended up getting substituted against Chelsea, but the latter has been a source of inspiration for Everton with his consistent performances in the Premier League this season. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Richarlison.
