Rudderless Crystal Palace are one of the sides in the Premier League who will be desperate for the international break as an ideal opportunity to find a new manager and get their affairs in order.
Before then they host a high-flying Toffees side who are 57/100 to collect three points at Selhurst Park, with the hosts 5/1 to win and the draw available at 11/4.
However, more value is to be found is picking the exact score, as Palace have tended to lose recent games 2-0, a result that is 13/2 to reoccur.
Crystal Palace have lost five of their past seven Premier League games 2-0.
Other than the wondergoal-strewn 4-1 loss to Fulham and Liverpool’s 3-1 win at Anfield, Palace have exclusively lost 2-0 in their last seven league matches.
Two of those losses have come in front of their own fans, with Arsenal benefitting from the trend in the last game at Selhurst Park.
Everton have kept five clean sheets in 10 league matches this campaign, including both their past two.
Roberto Martinez did not go in for stern defensive displays at Wigan, but his Everton side have been hard to break down partly as a natural consequence of their possession-heavy style.
The Toffees have kept their sheet whiter than white in half their league outings and in each of the last two, including a trip to Villa Park, where their hosts were unable to get past Tim Howard even from the penalty spot.
With just six goals, the Eagles are the joint-lowest scorers in the top flight this term and only two sides have created fewer chances.
Palace’s swathe of new additions over the summer has done little to make them a potent attacking unit, with half of their paltry return of six goals coming against second-bottom Sunderland.
The Eagles rank 16th in the league in terms of both shots taken and the accuracy of those strikes, skewing 62% of the few chances they do create wide of the target, suggesting Howard will not be called upon too often.
