Everton vs Bournemouth betting preview
As mentioned, as far as it goes for Everton they simply need to just beat Bournemouth and their Premier League status is secure.
Of course, on the pitch it's not that easy. And three points have been hard to come by for Sean Dyche in recent weeks.
It's just one win in the last ten outings – and a fabulous 5-1 with at Brighton at that – for the Toffees, who are perhaps fortunate that Leeds and Leicester have been equally poor.
Yerry Mina struck an all-important equaliser last weekend at Wolves to ensure their cushion is two points to both their rivals for the drop heading into Sunday's finale.
Their issue is Leicester's goal difference is six better, meaning an Everton draw and Leicester win – against European finalists West Ham – would relegate Everton for the first time in the Premier League era.
They've also lost their last three at Goodison Park, conceding ten goals in the process.
Scoring goals will be an issue on Sunday now too with the news that Dominic Calvert-Lewin will miss the game with an injury picked up last week.
Neal Maupay – one league goal this season and who last scored in a friendly in November – could come in to deputise, though Demarai Gray is perhaps more likely to fill the void up top.
Bournemouth only have a final league position to play for having secured their own top flight status some time ago.
The Cherries are perhaps already looking ahead to the summer having suffered three defeats on the bounce in their recent run.
Perhaps incredibly, Bournemouth have won the last four meetings between the two sides, scoring at least three goals in each of those occasions.
Not a very good omen for the Everton supporters clinging onto hope….
It'll be all Dwight on the night
Dwight McNeill has been a mainstay in the Everton team, particularly following Sean Dyche's arrival.
The winger has three goals in his last five games and his set piece delivery to the big, strong Everton targets in the middle could be crucial.
But it might be he himself who writes his name into history to keep the club in the division.
Has scored in three of the last five home games and can do so by opening the scoring here.
- Our tip: Dwight McNeill to score first at 11/2 with William Hill
Goals at both ends
Everton fans will be the first to tell you they don't do things easily.
That's why we see Bournemouth at least getting on the scoresheet in some capacity here.
They've scored 13 times in the last four games against Everton, while Everton have only failed to score in one of their last five games – against Manchester City.
This bet wiuld have landed in six of the last nine meetings between them.
- Our tip: Both to score no draw at 13/8 with William Hill
Former Liverpool man Dominic Solanke will lead the Bournemouth line, looking to help relegate his old rivals.
Solanke scored in the recent 3-2 win at Tottenham which at that time all but secured the Cherries' top flight status.
He's averaged over two shots per game in the Premier League this term – 2.3 to be exact – and we think he'll notch at least the same again.
Getting him to hit the target twice might be a slight stretch but it's not bad odds on offer and we're happy to play.
- Our tip: Dominic Solanke over 1 shot on target at 16/5 with William Hill
