UEFA Europa League, kick-off at 8:05pm Thursday 19th October 2017 from Goodison Park
Everton are in desperate need of a win as the season that promised so much continues to unravel. The Toffees are down near the relegation zone in the Premier League, having dropped two more points on Saturday, and are bottom of Group E in the Europa League.
Do they have better things to do than bother themselves with Europe’s second-string competition? Well, possibly, but there’s no doubt they need a maximum pay-out here, if only for the sanity of supporters. Unfortunately, opponents Lyon are no pushovers. Home cheer is favourite, but it fails to convince our team. Get professional betting tips and match predictions.

Team News – Everton
The locals have managed just one point from the first six up for grabs at this level, starting with a painful 3-0 loss away to Atalanta – a game we expected them to be a tad more competitive in – before fighting our a rather uninspiring home draw with Apollon Limassol last time out. Everton probably deserved all three points, but paid the price for their failure to put the game to bed. Rooney and Vlasic goals were matched by Copra and Canton.
There wasn’t too much more for fans to shout about at the weekend, ending 1-1 away to Brighton in a fixture Koeman would have targeted three points from. The pain continues, and the gaffer seems to be on increasingly thin ice. In an even contest, Knockaert thought he’d grabbed an 82nd minute winner, but Rooney swooped, nicking a leveller from the spot at the death. Chris Hughton labelled the point disappointing, which tells the story of the day.
Traders have, somehow, managed to ignore all that and price a home win up as favourite. That will come as a bit of a surprise to punters, given their form, but those who agree, picking the locals as the best of their betting tips and predictions, must make do with Coral’s 11/8, which appears to be the general feeling at the time of writing. Another draw isn’t easily ignored at 12/5 with the same firm.
Team News – Lyon
Lyon haven’t exactly set the heather alight themselves this season, and sit sixth in the French top-flight, nine points off leaders, and champions in-waiting, PSG. They’re unbeaten in three, a run which has helped budge them up the rankings, but two of those three ended in a draw. Lyon were winners at the weekend, beating Monaco by the odd-goal in five in a Friday night classic. The perfect preparation, Mariano and a Fekir double did the job.
Both teams to score again on Thursday is sure to be popular on the back of that weekend result, and you can try your luck at 4/6, best price through Sun Bets. Bet Victor’s the place to get your stake money down if you want to go against the grain, no currently available at 7/5. We’d rather go with the shorter price of the two, which would’ve bagged you a winner in each of Lyon’s two starts this month, and in all their last four.
Both teams to score and Lyon to win is certainly worth a second look, especially if you’re after a big price pay-out, and we wouldn’t talk anyone out of a bet at small stakes. William Hill set the bar there with their 9/2 offer. The straight away win is shorter, but still the outsider of three in the match betting market, 21/10 with William Hill.
Everton vs Lyon – UEFA Europa League Tips and Betting Predictions
I wouldn’t have free money on Everton as favourites at the minute. A slow start is quickly becoming a nightmare end to the year for fans, and although there’s still plenty of football to be played, I’ve seen nothing from them so far that would suggest they should carry our hard-earned cash. Therefore, we’re on Lyon +1 at 8/13 (Betfair) as the NAP of our betting tips. That takes out the chances of another draw.
After more than an odds-on shot for your accas? Then follow our correct score pick, where 2-1 Lyon goes as the best. There’s a cracking 10/1 at Betfair and that’s a good bit bigger than I expected to see. The narrow away win really wouldn’t surprise me, and I’m happy to see traders go against us. Let’s aim to boost your bank balance.
