Everton entertain bottom side West Ham United in Sunday’s Premier League clash at Goodison Park. The hosts have been guilty of giving up leads in a couple of games this season and they are nevertheless in the top half of the standings with six points on the board. West Ham, though, are yet to pick up a point under Manuel Pellegrini despite their significant summer spending. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.

Everton come into the game on the back of a 1-1 draw against Huddersfield Town. Dominic Calvert-Lewin netted the equaliser, which ensured that the Toffees continued their unbeaten start to the season.
West Ham, however, are yet to register a point in the current campaign and their most recent game ended in a close 1-0 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers. Adama Traore starred for the Wolves with a dramatic 93rd-minute winner.
Everton’s recent encounter against West Ham United came at the London Stadium where the hosts picked up a 3-1 triumph. Their last home meeting against the Hammers saw them win by a comfortable 4-0 scoreline. Our betting tips and predictions expect an Everton win.

West Ham are offered tempting odds of 3.80 for a maiden win but the result appears unlikely based on their recent form. The Hammers have struggled to find a cohesion since freshening up the squad and their performances have been inconsistent throughout the pitch. As such, we are fancying the hosts to continue their league dominance over the Hammers – 11 wins out of the 18 meetings since 2008. Our preview fancies a home win for Everton.

Correct Score odds
Everton have enjoyed superiority over West Ham in the Premier League era and they have succumbed to just one league defeat at Goodison Park in the previous six games. Out of this, the Hammers have drawn blank on four occasions but they may have better chance of finding the net this time around with Everton yet to keep a shutout. Despite this, our correct score prediction anticipates a 2-1 victory for the home side.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Both sides have yet to keep a clean sheet in the Premier League this term and this has resulted in high-scoring games either way. The last two meetings between them have taken the same trend with four goals produced in each. Our total goals prediction expects more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Everton are expected to be without leading scorer Richarlison for the West Ham as he serves the final game of his three-match suspension. In his absence, we are anticipating Theo Walcott to provide the scoring threat with two goals from his four appearances this term. He also has a strong record against the Hammers with six goals from just eight meetings. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Walcott.
