Currently 7th in the table with 45 points, Everton needs to keep up with the points if they would like to participate in European tournaments next season. The team is currently neck to neck with rival Liverpool, who also have 45 points but have scored more goals and have a better goal difference. Everton has only 1 defeat this season, recording 7 victories and 6 ties. The team was eliminated by Wigan, in the quarter-final stage of the FA Cup, after a home loss with 0-3. While this wasn’t expected, could be a good thing as Everton can focus now entirely on Premiership. Earlier this season on Etihad Stadium, the Toffees managed to avoid defeat, recording a 1-1. Two seasons in a row, Everton manages to record victories over Manchester City at home, with 1 goal difference, 1-0 last season and 2-1 in 2010-11. The betting odds fro Everton to win this match are @ 3.50, while the draw is priced @ 3.40. While Manchester City is a favorite appointed by the books for obvious reasons, we believe the stats show different. Taking the home victory would really pay off well, but if you want a safer bet, you can always go with Everton or Draw @ 1.75. Both outcomes have a good probability of coming out correct.

Manchester City come in this match as the 2nd in the table with 59 points, but are 12 points behind the current leader Manchester United, 10 rounds before the end of the season. With each and every round, their chance to get to the title is getting more distant. Everton are one of the most uncomfortable opponents for City, and a record of W1-D1-L3 in the past 5 matches between both teams shows it. Manchester City’s away record is W7-D5-L2, but the team struggles on Goodison Park, with last victory back in 2009, and 3 consecutive losses here since then. Manchester City prevailed hardly in their most recent away match against Aston Villa with 1-0, but lost the preceding one against Southampton with 1-3. The team is priced as a favorite for this match with betting odds @ 2.10, but be cautious. Our betting advice is that these odds aren’t worth the risk, especially for a team with record W0-D0-L3 in the past 3 seasons on Goodison Park. If you are uncomfortable to bet on Everton however, go ahead with the Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.85 with bet365. Everton has managed to get a 64.3% Over 2.5 Goals results, while Manchester City an exact 50%.
Betting tip #1 for this match would be Everton to win it, as we trust the statistics and Everton’s home performance this season. Though Manchester City is a worthy opponent and is 2nd in the table some 5 places ahead of the Toffees, that hasn’t stopped them from winning in the last 3 seasons. Back Everton @ 3.50 with bet365.
Betting tip #2 would be the safer option which covers 66% of the outcome of this match, Everton or Draw @ 1.75 with satisfying odds again.
