Monday night's clash between the Toffees and the Geordies screams money, money, money to your Humble Handicapper which is a good job as Mrs Richardson is also screaming, “shoes, shoes, shoes”.



At time of press before a weekend ball has been kicked Everton are sixth in the table but are just one point worse off than second place Manchester City.

Newcastle by comparison are slightly in the wrong half of the table at 12th . The Geordies have a goal difference which is as bad as 17th place Norwich, with -3 but they do have a more presentable tally of points.

Enough with the table settings…WHERE’S THE MONEY MIKE?

Table tells you who should win this game and your Humble Handicapper can't see a reason to go against that. 

Both sides managed to finish their last game 3-2, however Everton looked considerably more buoyed by their game as they came from behind to come out top away to West Ham while Newcastle (despite taking the lead early on and twice) were pegged back and eventually succumbed to Hull City Tigers at home.

Some might say that this means that Newcastle have all the more reason to play well and start getting some form of satisfaction and worth back into their season, but I feel that heads will droop and away from home the gusto and enthusiasm that Everton can take from their last game will make all the difference they need.

Home is Where the Points Are

Newcastle will be wishing that they could face Everton at home (their home), as despite going down 2-1 last season it marked only the fourth time out of 19 attempts that Everton took maximum points from a league game at St James's Park 

What's more looking at their last five meetings Newcastle have only beaten Everton once and that was at home.

Looking at the last five meetings between the two sides makes very interesting reading as there has yet to be a single clean sheet in any of those games dating back to March 2011.

The most common score when the sides meet had been 2-1 happening three times in the last five, twice for Everton and once for Newcastle. But the other two times we've seen four goals, 2-2 and 3-1 to Everton. 

Every interesting to note that Newcastle are 18/1 on an 2-1 victory while Everton are 6/1 for our soccer picks to win by the same score. Just to round things out Everton beating Newcastle 3-1 is at 11/1 and Newcastle managing a draw (any draw) away to Everton as they did the last time this fixture was played, is at 11/4.
