Still wallowing away in the relegation zone, the Villains could really use a positive result this weekend. It won't be easy away to Everton however, as the soccer odds would confirm.

Odds Overview
Current soccer betting lines show Everton as the clear-cut favorite, as the hosts are quoted at -175 to win outright and earn all three points. If you're feeling frisky and wanting to take a chance on Aston Villa, you'd be handsomely rewarded should they pull off the improbable upset. A win for the Villains is priced out at right around +500, with a draw at a number approaching +300 in the soccer odds board for the most part.

The Toffees have been performing at a high level recently, having gone unbeaten in three straight matches across all competitions. After barely surviving in a league cup win over Norwich City, Everton picked up a dominant 6-2 home win over Sunderland before earning a hard-fought point away to West Ham.

As of now, we see the Toffees in ninth place, but they obviously have the talent to push their way up the table. To do so though, they'll need to take care of their "easier" fixtures, like the one they face this weekend.


Aston Villa
Remi Garde earned his first point as Aston Villa manager in the team's recent 0-0 draw against Manchester City, a result he has to be thrilled with given his side's awful start to the campaign.

Let's not get carried away though. The Villains are still in last place in the EPL, with just five points earned through 12 matches, and now they have to contend with a talented Everton outfit.


Premier League Pick
The Villains may be in better hands under the guidance of Remi Garde, they've done little to instill confidence when it comes to placing our top soccer picks.

And, with Everton on a good run of form right now and having the added advantage of being in the comfortable confines of Goodison Park, it's hard to predict any other result but a win for the Toffees. They may get a fight from the determined and desperate Villa, but we're still staying away until they start playing better. We're on Everton this weekend.
