Everton vs Wolves: Toffees worth taking on at home

Kick-off: 1800, 19/05/2021

Stadium: Goodison Park

TV: Sky Sports

Everton have only won five Premier League home games all season, so it is hard to get excited about taking a shade of odds-on for them to beat Wolves.

Wanderers are coming off a defeat at Tottenham but had only lost at Manchester City in six previous away games and do tend to travel well.

Let’s go with 9/10 for the visitors to avoid defeat for our first Everton vs Wolves prediction.

A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds

Everton’s Goodison Park woes sunk to new depths when they were edged out 1-0 by basement dwellers Sheffield United on Sunday.

Daniel Jebbison, 17, netted for the Blades just seven minutes into his first start for the club as the Toffees lost on home turf for the ninth time this term.

Since Christmas, they have also lost here to the likes of Newcastle, Fulham and Burnley, damaging hopes of securing European football.

“It’s really difficult,” said Carlo Ancelotti. “I have to take the responsibility for this, of course, but I hope the players also take responsibility for this.

“Fortunately, we have supporters at home for the next game and I hope they wake us up because I think we need to wake up at home.

“It is really difficult to explain what is going on here at home. I am really embarrassed.”

A bit of crowd noise may help to liven things up but the Toffees have not been in front at half-time in any of their last five home matches.

Looking at the Everton vs Wolves odds, we like 11/10 for the scores to be level at the break.

Last Everton line-up: Pickford, Holgate, Keane, Digne, Godfrey, Coleman, Allan, Doucoure, Rodriguez, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin.

A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds

Wolves were admittedly fortunate to escape with just a 2-0 loss over the weekend as Spurs also hit the woodwork three times.

That result condemned them to a bottom-half finish for the first time since their return to the top flight.

However, Nuno Espirito Santo showed no signs of calling an early end to their season when pledging to tighten up at the back.

“A lot of work, discipline, individual improvement, a lot of work,” he said. “We have to stay and spend many hours on the training ground so we can improve.

“That is the only solution. We have to solve it in a couple of days because we face Everton.

“We can concede goals. The manner of how we concede is what I am disappointed at. One simple pass that breaks all of the lines is something we cannot allow to happen.”

Ruben Neves was only used as a late substitute in London but will hope for more involvement here as he has a good record versus Everton.

The 24-year-old Portugal international has scored in three of the last five meetings between these teams.

Let’s finish off our Everton vs Wolves betting tips by taking 4/1 for Neves to net at any time again.

Last Wolves line-up: Rui Patricio, Hoever, Coady, Semedo, Dendoncker, Gibbs-White, Ferreira, Saiss, Moutinho, Silva, Traore.
