Bet on live soccer matches

Everton have so far accrued 19 points in this season of the Premier League

Duncan Ferguson will have impressed upon his team the importance of getting a positive result out of this game, following two successive defeats. First it was Brighton & Hove Albion and then Norwich City, however this is something that their opponents will be aware of going into this fixture. When betting, the key to success is stats. They've won five games, drawn four matches, and lost 10 matches. Additionally, Everton have now lost nine of their last 12 fixtures, a worrying statistic that has to be addressed by Manager Duncan Ferguson. Next Saturday, Everton will require its best defence players against Villa, since the chances for win to nil against are rated at 24.27%.

The club’s goals per match average is currently 1.26, so scoring goals against Villa could be easy for them. If you’re betting on the correct score of the game, it may be best for you to consider that the number of goals scored by The Toffees might stick close to their goals per match average.

The last clash of The Toffees ended with two goals scored in their favour, and the chances of Italy scoring exactly two goals this time is rated at 26.88%.


Duncan Ferguson’s The Toffees play at home this week against their rival, better positioned in the standings right now. We don't know what will happen in the next 90 minutes, but goal average in first halves for The Toffees is 0.26. So if you’re betting on what the score will be at the 1st half, count on this!


Corners always mean a great scoring opportunity for Everton; their total for and against amount to 77 and 117, respectively. Make your corners over/under bets now!

Aston Villa go into this match with 23 points secured

Only a positive result will be acceptable for Steven Gerrard’s Villa, having drawn away to Manchester United, which itself followed a loss to Brentford. A win would go some way to restoring the team’s confidence. Did you know that they've won seven games, drawn two matches, and lost 11 fixtures? Also, Villa should play defensively this Saturday, because the likelihood of them winning to nil against Everton is rated at 24.88%.

The club’s goals per match average is currently 1.35, so scoring goals against Everton could be easy for them. If you’re betting on the correct score of the game, it may be best for you to consider that the number of goals scored by The Villa might stick close to their goals per match average.

The last time, the visitor team Villa, managed to score two goals against its rivals. Now, they are aiming for a repetition of the feat, which is a possibility that currently stands at 27.25% for the game this following Saturday.


If Villa have a better position in the standings than their rival so far, it is because they've managed to score more. Right now, their goal percentage is 85%. So if you’re betting on both teams to score (BTTS), you should take this into account.

Everton v Aston Villa Head-to-Head in the Premier League

As you place your bets, remember that when these sides have met previously the locals have struggled to get a win with Villa 20 wins and 19 draws. September 2021 was the most recent time these two clashed in this competition and The Villa took all three points winning 3-0. In their previous clashes, both sides got on the scoresheet and it’s rated at 59.52% that they both score once more on Saturday.

We don't know what the total score of this upcoming game is going to be; could be similar or different! But the connection between the over/under (Asian total) and the combined goals (three goals, in this particular case) seems to be a nice benchmark to place some interesting bets!

  • Currently, Everton are favored to win the contest with a rating of 37.74%
  • The rating for Aston Villa is at 37.04%
  • A draw between the two teams is rated at 30.3%
