For correct score betting, the Poisson Distribution tool predicts a 2-0 scoreline, with 1-0 the second most likely outcome. Six of Everton’s last 10 home games were won to nil while Stoke failed to find the back of the net in 6 of their last 8 away games.


Southampton vs. Swansea


Back under 2.5 goals at 1.87 (Marathon Bet)

In EPL matches between Southampton and Swansea, 8 of their 10 clashes went under 2.5 goals. Southampton went under 2.5 goals in 12 of their 19 home games last season. They have gone under 2.5 goals in their last 4 home games while Swansea have gone under the total in their last 5 straight away games. Southampton finished last season having failed to score in their last 5 straight home games.


Newcastle vs. Tottenham


Back Tottenham in the head-to-head at 1.72 (William Hill)

Of the last 6 clashes between the two, 5 were won by the visiting team. Tottenham finished last season in incredible form, thrashing Leicester City 6-1 and Hull 7-1, both away from home. With the bulk of last season’s squad returning and Harry Kane fit, Tottenham look to be good value in the head-to-head market.
