Bet365 Betting On Everton

Published on: 12/04/2017

Everton may not have won a major trophy since their FA Cup win in 1995, but their record 114 seasons in the top-flight of English Football is littered with success. You might not know this, but only three clubs have been crowned Champions of England more times than The Toffees, so let’s take a look at some of the ways you might want to bet on Everton.

The Premier League

Everton were crowned Champions of England at only their second attempt way back in 1891, and went on to be crowned Champions 8 more times in 1915, 1928, 1932, 1939, 1963, 1970, 1985 and 1987. However, in recent years they have become a side who tend to teeter on the edge of Champions League Qualification without quite making it. In the last 10 Premier League seasons they have finished, 6th, 5th, 5th, 8th, 7th, 7th, 6th, 5th, 11th and 11th, with points-totals of 58, 65, 63, 61, 54, 56, 63, 72, 47 and 47. However, in 2017, manager Ronald Koeman has steered them back into a top-10 position.

The FA Cup

Only 8 teams have won the FA Cup more times than Everton, though the last of their successes in England’s most prestigious cup competition came in 1995. They did make the final in 2009, losing 2-1 to Chelsea, and that was their 8th FA Cup Final defeat in 13 Final appearances. Often put-up as a value-selection by pundits, betting on Everton to win the FA Cup would have left you in the poorhouse in recent seasons.

The EFL Cup

Everton have never won the EFL Cup, or its former equivalent, though they were losing finalists in both 1977 and 1984. The lack of a final appearance, let alone a victory, in the last 33-years suggests Everton don’t prioritize this competition.

The FA Community Shield

Everton will need a resurgence of former glories to reach another FA Community Shield Final, but they have an excellent record when doing so. They have lifted the trophy 6-times out of 9 as Champions of England, and 3-times out of 5 as FA Cup holders.

Europe

Despite being crowned Champions of England, Everton have failed to enjoy any success in Europe. However, with German manager Ronald Koeman in charge, they could possibly be a betting proposition if qualifying for one of the smaller European trophies in the near-future.

Other Ways To Bet On Everton

There are also lots of other ways you might want to consider betting on Everton, and their potent hitman Romelu Lukaku is an always an interesting bet for Top Premier League Goalscorer. The Belgian striker became the first foreign international to score 80 Premier League goals before turning 24, and it would be no surprise if he led the scoring charts one season. The other interesting way to bet on an Everton side that may continue to progress under Koeman is the Premier League Handicap Betting, and anything like a 30-Point Start over Champions Chelsea next season would make them of interest.
