Everton manager Frank Lampard faces off against his former team, Chelsea, on opening day of the Premier League season. The Toffees are in real danger of battling relegation once more this season after the sale of top player Richarlison to Tottenham Hotspur in the offseason.

Everton vs Chelsea Bet Builder Tips

Question marks abound at Chelsea after Romelu Lukaku was allowed to leave the club on loan. He returned to Inter Milan for the 2022-23 season. Chelsea’s new ownership has signed Raheem Sterling from Manchester City along with Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly.

Everton go into the match as underdogs at home to get an opening day win. The Toffees are at the best betting odds of 17/4. Chelsea are at the best betting odds of 13/20 to pick up an away win. The teams are 3/1 to draw at full-time on Saturday in the Premier League’s late game. Everton have been a bogey team for Chelsea with a record of 3W-1D-2L in the teams’ last six meetings.

Everton vs Chelsea Full-time Result

odds

Everton won just one of their last four games of the 2021-22 season. The Toffees were a relegation side before and after Lampard’s appointment. This summer, they haven’t got any stronger. In fact, the playing squad is weaker and the additions of Dwight McNeil and James Tarkowski from last year’s relegated Burnley are unimpressive.

Everton are in paying for years of chaos. Chelsea are not the finished article before the transfer window closes. Sure, the Blues lost a Goodison last season 1-0 and failed to beat Everton in 2021-22. Chelsea are a far better squad and on opening day will post a win at full-time.

Everton vs Chelsea Halftime result

odds

Everton will be lucky to still be in this game by halftime. The Toffees should give up an early goal with the Blues going into halftime leading. Twenty-seven-percent of games in the Premier League last term ended as an away win at halftime.

Everton vs Chelsea Halftime / Full-time Result

odds

Two of the last five matches between these teams saw Chelsea winning at halftime and full-time. Everton are a bogey team for Chelsea, but the talent in the squad is low going into opening day. Chelsea may not have a goal scoring No. 9, but let’s not forget about the likes of Kai Havertz, Jorginho, Kante N’Golo, and Mason Mount.

Everton vs Chelsea Double Chance

odds

If you are looking for some insurance on your bet builder, then a double chance Chelsea win or draw is a good shout. Chelsea’s recent record against Everton isn’t great with 2W-1D-3L. Chelsea have still outscored Everton across their last six encounters with eight goals and six conceded.

Everton vs Chelsea Over/Under

odds

The last four games between Everton and Chelsea have been low scoring with under 2.5 goals tallied. Being that Everton and Chelsea are meeting on opening day, this matchday No. 1 fixture should see a few goals. The 2021-22 Premier League enjoyed 54% of games ending with over 2.5 goals. My betting tips prediction is for over 2.5 goals as Everton’s defence struggles with Chelsea’s attack.

Everton vs Chelsea First Goal Scorer

odds

Mason Mount should be lively from the start. Mount led Chelsea in goals last season with 11. He also had 10 assists. Thomas Tuchel will likely start the midfielder in an advanced position and Mount could get on the scoresheet. Mount has two goals in six career games versus Everton.

Everton vs Chelsea Anytime Goal Scorer

odds

Kai Havertz still isn’t the player many Chelsea supporters believed he would when he signed from Bayer Leverkusen. Still, Havertz scored eight league goals and was second in scoring for the Blues. In three games against Everton, Havertz hasn’t scored, but does have an assist. He could get on the scoresheet anytime on Saturday at Goodison Park.

Everton vs Chelsea Last Goal Scorer

odds

Jorginho is typically Chelsea penalty taker. If the Blues get a spot kick and Jorginho is on the pitch, he will likely be the one to take it. The Italian bagged six goals last season for the Blues with all six coming from the spot in the league. My betting tips prediction is for Joringho to get the last goal for the Blues.

Everton vs Chelsea Winning Margin

odds

This is a difficult one to predict as I’m expecting a big Chelsea win on opening day against a bad Everton team. However, games between these sides in recent time have been low scoring. In March 2020, Chelsea won 4-0 against Everton at Stamford Bridge. My betting tips prediction is for a similar result. Seven Premier League games last season finished with an away 4-0 win. Chelsea’s winning margin should be four goals.

Everton vs Chelsea Half with most goals

odds

Chelsea should lead going into halftime and it is likely that Everton will crumble from there. My betting tips prediction is for it to be a tie in terms of the half with most goals. Both halves should have an equal number of scores.

Everton vs Chelsea BTTS

odds

It is anyone’s guess were Everton’s goals will come from. Dominic Calvert-Lewin may not play due to injury and last season’s leading goal scorer, Richarlison, is gone. Four of the last six games between these teams finished NO BTTS and Saturday’s match at Goodison should also be NO BTTS.
