Southampton vs. Everton Odds and Tips as Premier League top scorer in form number 9 at the St. Mary’s penalty shootout
Dominic Calvert-Lewin is only the fourth player in Premier League history to score in each of his team’s first five league games, making him the first Everton player to score in the first five league games of a season since Tommy Lawton in 1938/39!
But today, there’s an even more form-fitting striker on the field – and he wears the famous Royal Blue jersey with the number nine.
With 10:3 at thepools.com he opens the scoring this afternoon – and with 21:20 he can score a goal anytime.
And Calvert-Lewin loves an early goal – he has scored the first goal in a game five times this season, and the first goal of his team in six games.
And he also scored a goal in his England debut earlier this month.
The DCL is 4-1 to open the scoring in St. Mary’s and 13/10 to score a goal at any time.
Although Southampton have had a rather unremarkable start to the season, the Southampton team have only lost two of their last 12 Premier League games.
Leader Everton are the clear favorites to win 6-4 with a 7-4 draw (12-5) and a 7-4 win over Southampton.
And don’t be tempted to leave the room early to put the kettle on for a cup of tea at half-time! Southampton have scored goals or conceded goals in three of their four league games to date from the 40th minute to half-time – and in the last two matches between Southampton and Everton.
Everton has averaged 3.25 goals per competitive match to date, and in the last six games has scored more than 2.5 goals and both teams have scored goals.
The statistics also tell us that this should be an entertaining affair.
More than 2.5 goals is a cinch at 4/5, BTTS and both teams win by 11/8 and Everton wins by 16/5!
