Swansea City take on Everton in Saturday's early start that kicks off week 32 of EPL betting this weekend. Check out the soccer betting preview we've put together and our choice soccer picks.

Swansea City Not Getting Respect
Swansea City are riding a two-game winning streak ahead of Saturday's clash with Everton at Liberty Stadium, wins over Aston Villa (away) and Hull City (home) that have lifted them up to eighth place in the table with 46 points. This weekend they'll look to extend that winning form to three in a row as they continue their bid to set a new club record in England's top flight.

The Swans enter their clash with the Toffees as the home favorites, albeit at +150 soccer odds they are a good distance above Even money. Home form, however, suggests they are worth considering for your weekend soccer picks, even against a quality side such as Everton are.

As it is, the Swans boast a 13-7-11 record and 46 points, which includes an impressive 8-4-4 record at home and a 5-3-7 record on the road. They are eight points behind sixth-placed Tottenham Hotspur and a potential Europa League spot next season, but with only seven games left on the season that may be an ambitious goal for the Swans. The attainable goal is to continue improving their win column that reached a club-best 13th win last weekend at the expense of the struggling Tigers.


Everton Struggles Are Over?
Preseason predictions had the Swans not the Toffees struggling. So when Roberto Martinez's boys were found flirting with relegation halfway through the season, it was a big surprise to soccer bettors and avid Premier League fans.

Happily, the Toffees picked up form recently and took themselves out of the relegation conversation. They are sat 12th in the table with a 9-10-12 record and 37 points, eleven points clear of the drop zone. Premier League safety looks to be all but a certainty as Everton looks towards the business end and finishing on a positive note. It's all about salvaging the remnants of their largely disappointing season now.

Despite their top-flight resurgence and a move up to eighth in the form table behind a 3-1-2 mark in their last six games, they are at the disadvantage on the Premier League odds board, matched at +210 soccer odds to win outright. The draw, meanwhile, is trading at +230. This is partly down to their road form, which features only two wins in their last seven away domestic fixtures. As well, it's down to Swansea's overall form (fifth in the form table behind a 4-0-2 mark in their last six) and home form, which is 3-2-2 in their last seven home fixtures.


Soccer Betting Verdict:
Everton appear to have found form down the stretch, but they still are too inconsistent on the road to make them a choice soccer pick for the away win at +210 soccer odds. Soccer bettors looking to back Everton would be best served backing the double chance market where Everton are priced at -182 to either win or draw. For our money, we fancy the Swans to come through on home turf where they have been tough to beat all season long. What's more, at +150 soccer odds they aren't being given the respect they deserve, but they are a value soccer pick nonetheless.
