Leeds v Everton betting tips: Home side look to bounce back

| 18.08.2021

Leeds v Everton betting tips and odds

Leeds return to Elland Road with their tail between their legs following their opening-day annihilation at the hands of Manchester United but they are the 13/10 favourites to win this encounter with Everton.

With most of last season played behind closed doors, this will be the first chance for the majority of Leeds’ supporters to roar on Marcelo Bielsa’s side in the Premier League.

They face an Everton team that came from behind to beat Southampton last weekend and the Toffees are 19/10 to record an away victory in the Leeds v Everton betting tips.

Match odds

Everton have shrewdly bolstered their squad in the close season and are 9/1 to repeat the 2-1 victory they secured at Leeds in February.

Leeds grabbed a 1-0 win away at Goodison Park in the two sides’ other clash last season and that is also priced up at 9/1, while the Whites can be backed at 29/10 to win to nil.

You only have to look at the scores from last weekend’s fixtures to see this contest could be full of goals, so over 2.5 in the match and Patrick Bamford to have four or more shots also appeals at 2/1 as a #GetAPrice special.

Both teams to score at 8/15 is also worthy of plenty of consideration in our Leeds v Everton betting tips.

Talking Tactics

A thunderbolt from Luke Ayling was the only glimmer of a consolation for Bielsa’s side as they were torn apart by a rampant Manchester United.

Kalvin Phillips was missing from the starting XI at Old Trafford and the return of the England international, who excelled at Euro 2020, could be key to Leeds’ fortunes in this game.

Rafa Benitez, Everton, Leeds v Everton betting tips

There was no room for the isolating James Rodriguez in Rafa Benitez’s first Everton XI and he could struggle to come straight back into a squad that looked full of confidence at Goodison Park.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin got off the mark for the season as he continues to prove himself as one of the league’s top strikers and Richarlison was on target, while there was plenty of creativity provided in behind from new boys Andros Townsend and Demarai Gray.

There looks to be plenty of goals in the Toffees’ line-up and that could be key to Benitez keeping the Goodison Park faithful on side.

Goalscorer odds

It is no surprise to see Calvert-Lewin chalked up as the 7/2 favourite to open the scoring, while if you fancy him to bag a brace against a shaky Leeds backline, then that is available at 8/1.

For the England striker to achieve the same feat Bruno Fernandes managed against Bielsa’s men and notch a hat-trick, then that can be found at 40/1 in the Leeds v Everton betting tips.

Bamford was Leeds’ main source of goals last season and he is the shortest price of their players to open the scoring at 4/1 while Raphinha netted in both fixtures against Everton last term and is 13/5 anytime.
