What Trueform says for Everton vs Leicester
Everton suffered a third defeat in four Premier League games when going down 1-0 to Brighton at Amex Stadium on Saturday.
The Toffees travelled to the south coast on the back of a 5-1 thumping of Burnley on Boxing Day.
Leicester had beaten Chelsea and champions Manchester City over Christmas but conceded a late goal to lose 1-0 at home to Cardiff.
We feel 12/5 for a draw is a good option as our initial Everton vs Leicester prediction.
A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds
Seagulls striker Jurgen Locadia decided the contest against Everton, swivelling to turn home in the 59th minute following a Pascal Gross corner.
The strike was initially flagged offside but, after consulting with a linesman, match official Andrew Madley awarded the goal.
Replays showed it was the correct decision, as the ball was inadvertently diverted towards Everton’s goal by Toffees midfielder Andre Gomes.
Everton twice hit the woodwork as they went in search of an equaliser, with Richarlison denied by a post and Kurt Zouma heading against the crossbar.
Boss Marco Silva said: “It was a frustrating afternoon for us. I think we created more than our opponent.
“Even if it wasn’t our best performance, we created enough to achieve a different result.”
Everton had drawn twice at home prior to a recent 6-2 drubbing by Tottenham, so let’s take 17/5 for a draw and both teams to score from the Everton vs Leicester odds.
Last Everton line-up: Pickford, Mina, Keane, Zouma, Coleman, Gomes, Gueye, Digne, Walcott, Bernard, Richarlison.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Victor Camarasa’s stunning stoppage-time strike earned Cardiff a vital victory against Leicester after Neil Etheridge’s inspired display.
The goalkeeper saved James Maddison’s second-half penalty, before Camarasa struck from 25 yards.
Philippines international Etheridge pulled off a string of fine saves to help earn the Bluebirds a precious triumph – their first away in the league this term – in their battle against the drop.
He denied Ricardo Pereira, Jamie Vardy and Maddison to lift Cardiff four points above the Premier League relegation zone.
Foxes boss Claude Puel said: “We will see with Maddy (how the miss affects him), it’s a big disappointment for him. He has a lot of responsibility and has learned a lot.
“We’re frustrated. We knew before it would be tough but we played a team with another style of play after Chelsea and City. We tried to push until the end to find a clinical edge. We were unlucky.”
Leicester have lost just one of their last four away games in the top flight so Draw HT/Draw FT at 15/4 completes our Everton vs Leicester betting tips.
Last Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, Ricardo Pereira, Soyuncu, Maguire, Chilwell, Mendy, Ndidi, Albrighton, Maddison, Gray, Vardy.
