Just two matches are scheduled for Saturday in the Premier League, starting off with Everton vs Crystal Palace. Everton have been really strong since the change in coach and look like they will have a strong finish to the season. Crystal Palace have been in really bad form in almost two months now. They are coming here on a win-less streak and they look unable to turn the ship right now.

Spread: Everton -0.75
Total: 2.25 Goals
Everton (9-10-6) are coming off a really strong performance on the road against Watford. They went down by two goals but pulled even before the first half was over. They were left with 10 men at the 71st minute but scored the winning goal at the stoppage time for the final 3-2 win. They are now undefeated in their last four (2-0-2). Everton have climbed to the 9th spot of the league table with 33 points. They are just four points behind the 5th Tottenham and the spot that leads to the Europa League next season. They have been really strong at home so far (6-3-3), losing just one of their last ten in all competitions there.
On the other hand, Crystal Palace (7-9-9) will surely be frustrated about their 1-0 home loss over Sheffield United last week. It was a really balanced match between the two sides, and it was Palace’s goalkeeper who scored an unlucky own goal to make this a 1-0 loss. That means that Crystal Palace are now win-less in their last seven (0-3-4) and in each of their last six league matches (0-2-4). Moreover, they have won just once in the past two months (1-4-6). Crystal Palace are now sitting at the 14th spot of the Premier League with 33 points. They are just four points above the relegation zone so they need to be careful. They have been quite competitive on the road (3-4-5), losing just one of their last six (1-1-4).
The two teams split the points in a goal-less draw earlier in the season, which means that Everton are now undefeated in their last ten matches against Crystal Palace (4-0-6). And they have been great as hosts too over the years (3-2-2), so I am going with the home team here.
Premier League Everton vs Crystal Palace Prediction: Everton -0.75 (-121)
