Everton’s ten-point deduction leaves them teetering close to the relegation zone with 20 points after 25 matches. The Toffees are winless in the eight Premier League games and were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Crystal Palace on Monday evening.

Betting tips

Matches involving Everton tend to be low-scoring affairs. Only Burnley and Sheffield United have scored fewer goals than the 27 registered by Sean Dyche’s side yet only the division’s top three have a better defensive record with just 33 goals conceded. Combine this with the fact that Brighton’s Evan Ferguson is without a goal in 15 matches in all competitions, Kaoru Mitoma’s goal-less run in the Premier League stretched back 13 games and both Joao Pedro and Solly March remain absent, we’re not quite sure where the goals will come from on Saturday. Under 2.5 match goals looks a wise bet at 11/10. Both teams have scored in 14 of the 15 Premier League fixtures played at the Amex this season so we’re edging towards a 1-1 draw in the correct score market at generous odds of 13/2.

If we were pushed to pick a goal scorer in Saturday’s fixture then Brighton’s Ivorian forward, Simon Adingra gets the nod. Fresh from his Africa Cup of Nations victory with Ivory Coast, Adingra scored twice against Sheffield United in his first Premier League appearance since December 21st. Adingra is 2/1 to score at any time but with goals expected to be few and far between in this fixture, there’s arguably better value in backing Adingra to score first at 6/1.
