Everton are priced at 3/4 by SkyBet to win on Monday night. The Toffees have had a positive campaign so far as they are currently 6thin the league. However, their recent late loss to Liverpool has soured the campaign. Marco Silva will be thankful for both Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson this season, who have had the lion’s share of goals.

Their last three matches have been tough with Liverpool, Man City and Leicester as opponents, which have all resulted in losses and seven goals conceded. They will struggle to keep the Everton attack quiet but that doesn’t mean they can’t still win. For Watford to win and both teams to score, SkyBet are offering 15/2.
