Everton prepare to host Fulham at Goodison Park for a crucial league match this weekend. The blues have had a disappointing start to the campaign and hold just a one-point advantage over Fulham coming into the game. Manager Slavisa Jokanovic will be even more disappointed with the Cottagers managing just five points so far this season – despite their vast expenditure in the summer. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Everton lost for a second consecutive league match as they were beaten by Arsenal 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium. The only victory for the club came against Southampton at home.
Fulham were held to a 1-1 draw by Watford in their latest league match at Craven Cottage. Slavisa Jokanovic has seen his team put in some impressive games but the home win over Burnley is the only success for the club this season.
Fulham’s last trip to Goodison Park was in 2013 when they lost 4-1. The recent game between the two clubs was at Craven Cottage, where Everton picked up a 3-1 win. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a stalemate.

Fulham are given a price of 4.50 to win the game and it is rather short for a team that has never been able to get a league success at Goodison Park. Everton have had a mediocre start to the season with little going for them so far. However, they have been able to resist a defeat against most teams at Goodison Park. The loss against West Ham will provide the team with valuable lessons. Even though Fulham have a strong offensive line up with the likes of Andre Schurrle and Aleksandar Mitrovic, our preview would back a stalemate.

Everton win odds: 1.72
Fulham win odds: 4.50
Correct Score odds
Fulham and Everton shared almost an identical record in terms of goals scored and conceded so far this season. Both teams have managed to get eight goals. Fulham have relied heavily on Aleksandar Mitrovic and this can work against the team on the road. Most of the chances for Fulham in the recent game against Watford came in counter-attacks, while Everton will be expected to dominate at home. Our correct score prediction would go with a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
This fixture has been a frequent entertainer in the past with just one of the last six meetings producing under 2.5 goals. However, Everton will be cautious about the threat posed by Fulham on the counter-attacks, while the Londoners have a responsibility to shut up shop after conceding 13 goals already. Our total goals prediction would pick under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Richarlison is a player who tends to go on a run of goals. He may find it difficult to pick himself up after the period on the sidelines due to suspension. Aleksandar Mitrovic has been one of the best players in the season so far and our first goalscorer prediction would back the five-goal star.
