Everton (8-10-3) vs. Fulham (7-11-3)
Fulham vs. Everton 1/30/24 – As English Premier League (EPL) action continues to unfold, Everton and Fulham will meet at Craven Cottage on Tuesday, January 30, in what promises to be an intense encounter. Both teams aim for victory as this encounter holds significance in league standings; we will analyze both squad’s offensive capabilities, defensive prowess, goalkeeper performances as well as current betting odds; we also offer premium experts picks and predictions that may offer insights for placing informed bets.
Everton have had a mixed start to their Premier League (EPL) season thus far, earning 8 wins, 10 draws, and 3 losses to sit comfortably mid-table in EPL standings. Players like Abdoulaye Doucoure, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Dwight McNeil have led Everton’s attacking force this year; Doucoure in particular netted six goals while Calvert-Lewin contributed three while McNeil provided two. These offensive prowess will play an instrumental role against Fulham when looking to claim victory on Saturday.
Fulham have struggled for consistency throughout the season and can count only 7 wins, 11 draws, and 3 losses to their name compared to Everton’s 12. Their attack has been led by Raul Jimenez (5 goals), Bobby De Cordova-Reid (4 goals) and Willian (4 goals each), so their attacking unit must remain on top form in order to break through Everton’s defense and get through on Saturday afternoon.

Jordan Pickford GK vs. Marek Rodak GK
Jordan Pickford has been Everton’s go-to goalie this season. Securing 8 clean sheets and making 60 saves to date, his track record speaks for itself – making 26 goals seem high; but when considered against Everton’s overall defensive performance. Pickford will prove key against Fulham’s attacking threats thanks to his experience and shot stopping ability.
Marek Rodak may not have seen as much action this season compared to Pickford; with no starts and no goals against or saves recorded. But his role as Fulham goalkeeper cannot be overlooked; even without starts it will be challenging to evaluate him properly, yet Rodak will have ample chance to show off his abilities against Everton’s dangerous attackers.

Everton Betting Trends
Everton have shown inconsistent form recently. Out of five recent games they’ve won two and their record against the spread stands at 4-1. On their travels they have fared slightly better at 5-5 against the spread, yet goals have gone over twice in those five matches and five of 11 home fixtures at Everton Stadium over that span – suggesting Everton can engage both high scoring matches as well as lower-scoring ones.
Fulham Betting Trends
Fulham haven’t exactly impressed in recent weeks, managing just 1 win out of five matches played and posting an overall record against the spread of 2-3 (5-6 on the road against it). Yet it’s notable that Fulham home matches often produce more goals – something to take into consideration in your betting decisions.
