Premier League Round 28 Preview: Everton Look To Move Into Top Half Away At Cardiff
Meanwhile, Chelsea meet Tottenham in London derby while league leaders Liverpool host Watford
The season has not exactly been one to remember for Everton fans, but they can at least move into the top half, depending on other results, if they win away to struggling Cardiff this coming Tuesday night (26 February). The following evening, Chelsea lock horns with rivals Tottenham in what is sure to be a fierce local derby, while table toppers Liverpool welcome Watford to Anfield.

Where should I be investing my money?
First up, that clash between Cardiff and Everton on Tuesday night. The Welsh club were thrashed 5-1 by Watford this past Friday night and sit just a place and a point above the dreaded relegation zone – they are priced at just 1.53 to drop straight back down to the EFL Championship.
Everton, meanwhile, are on a miserable run of form themselves having lost their last three league outings in a row. The Toffees have slumped to 11th in the table and coach Marco Silva is coming under intense pressure to reverse the situation as quickly as possible.
Nevertheless, it is Everton who come into this match as the favourites to collect the points. You can more than double your money by backing the visitors to get back to winning ways at 2.20 while Cardiff, despite home advantage, are out at 3.60 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 3.40, according to Oddsshark.
But we are expecting home advantage to be a key factor in this contest. A narrow, 1-0 win for Cardiff is priced competitively at 11.00, thereby offering more than a ten-fold return on any investment, while a combo bet of a Cardiff win, coupled with a “No” to both teams scoring, comes in at 6.00.
Chelsea and Tottenham meet in fierce derby
The following evening, Chelsea host Tottenham at Stamford Bridge in what should be a fiery encounter. Three defeats in their last four league outings has seen Chelsea slip down to sixth in the table, and they are now at 2.20 to finish in the top four come the end of the season.
Tottenham, meanwhile, are looking to bounce back from a disappointing defeat to Burnley at the weekend. Sitting six points off the top of the table, Spurs are now all the way out at 67.00 to win their first ever Premier League title.
Again, the betting is close, but it is Chelsea who come in as the favourites to take the points. You can more than double your money by backing the home side to claim local bragging rights at 2.50, with Tottenham coming in slightly higher at 2.87 – a draw would appear to be the least likely outcome and is priced accordingly at 3.25.
And Chelsea could well inflict more misery on their rivals. A 2-1 win for the Blues also comes in at 11.00, while you can more than quadruple your money by backing a combo bet of a Chelsea win, coupled with both teams to score, at 4.75.
Liverpool to east past Watford
And finally, Liverpool welcome Watford to Anfield looking for three valuable points in their title chase. The Reds sit a point clear at the top of the table and are priced at 2.62 to win their first ever Premier League crown.
Watford, however, also come into this match on the back of some good form, having now gone unbeaten in their last four matches across all competitions. The side sit seventh in the league, 10 points off Chelsea in sixth.
And it is league leaders Liverpool who come into this match as the red hot favourites to take all three points. You can back the table toppers to win at just 1.25, while Watford are out at 12.00 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 5.50.
This should be a fairly comfortable evening for the home side. A 3-0 win for Liverpool comes in at 8.50, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$42.50 pay out, while you can more than double your money by backing a combo bet of a Liverpool win, coupled with a “No” to both teams scoring, at 2.10.
