Everton vs Crystal Palace correct score betting: Key trends

We analyse some key Everton vs Crystal Palace correct score betting selections ahead of this bottom-of-the-table Premier League encounter.

Despite some positive recent performances, Everton head into the contest winless in seven and inside the relegation zone. Palace are also out of form, with just two wins in 13 and the Eagles are set to change manager imminently, as the incoming Oliver Glasner is queued up to replace Roy Hodgson.

Both sides are desperate for points and some interesting picks are available in the Everton vs Crystal Palace correct score betting markets.

Everton vs Crystal Palace correct score betting – Most common scoreline

Everton come into this clash unbeaten in six against Palace. The Toffees have been particularly strong against the Eagles at home, winning their last three on Merseyside.

Out of form Palace have also travelled poorly recently and lost their last four. The South Londoners have rarely threatened Everton’s goal in recent head to heads too, failing to score in four of the last five fixtures.

As a result, an Everton win is the bookmaker’s favourite, and a low-scoring home triumph could unfold. However, Palace can be hard to breach with their defensive setup, and two of the last four matches between these sides have finished 0-0. 

  • Everton win 1-0 – 11/2
  • Everton win 2-0 – 7/1
  • 0-0 draw – 19/2

In three of the last four meetings between Everton and Palace, just one first-half goal has been scored. Sean Dyche’s side also see few first-half goals in the Premier League, as three of their last four fixtures have been goalless at the break.

The Eagles are also unthreatening in the opening exchanges and have failed to score in the first half in six consecutive away matches. 

Neither side will want to give chances away early on and another low-scoring first half could unfold at Goodison Park. 

  •  0-0 – 7/4
  •  1-1 – 9/1
  • Everton 1-0 – 27/10
  • Crystal Palace 1-0 – 13/2

Total goals exact

Although a low scorer is anticipated in this fixture, either side could find the net at least once. In particular, Everton has shown a goalscoring touch on home soil recently, striking one or more goals in four of their last five.

Palace have also conceded two goals on average on the road this season, so home chances can come on Merseyside.

  • 1 – 10/3
  • 2 – 5/2
  • 3 – 10/3

Total goals over/under

Sticking with few goals to come in the over/under market appears a solid selection in the Everton vs Crystal Palace correct score betting market.

The last two meetings between the sides in this season’s FA Cup saw just one goal across 180 minutes. Andre Gomes’ free-kick in Everton’s 1-0 win over Palace was a rare sight at goal, as chances remained at a premium.

There is value in going low again in the Everton vs Crystal Palace match. 

  • Under 1.5 goals – 9/4
  • Over 1.5 goals – 19/50
  • Under 2.5 goals – 3/4

Both teams to score

BTTS Yes score lines have been rare for Everton recently, as the Merseysiders have seen goals at both ends once in their last five league matches. 

Palace have also been lacklustre in attack when playing away recently. They have scored just two in their last four and failed to strike in three of their last three on the road. 

  • Yes – 21/20
  • No – 4/5

Team to score first

Everton have made the faster starts in recent encounters and took the lead in three of the last five head-to-heads. In the reverse fixture at Selhurst, Vitaliy Mykolenko put Everton ahead in the opening minute.

  • Everton – 11/20
  • Crystal Palace – 11/5
  • No goals – 17/2

Team to score last

Similarly, Everton stands out as the late flourishers when facing Palace. Dyche’s outfit has had the final say in four of the last six meetings against their South London opponents. 

A better late-than-never approach has also been a feature of Everton’s 2023/24 Premier League season. The Toffees have managed to strike in the 79th minute or later eight times in their last 13 matches – including at Selhurst Park in November as Idrissa Gueye struck an 86th-minute winner. 

  • Everton – 4/7
  • Crystal Palace – 11/5
  • No goalscorer – 8/1
