Huddersfield Town vs Everton – Prediction, Odds and Betting Tips
Ten points behind salvation, Huddersfield Town needs to find a fast solution in order to add more points to the Premier League table. Their main problem is the attack, one that has produced too little this season, despite Huddersfield managers having four or five solutions.
Their Tuesday opponents, Everton, haven’t had a great season either, but the desire on Goodison Park is for the team to play in Europe, not just avoid relegation. On the reverse, Huddersfield got a point in a 1-1 draw.

Huddersfield Town – Hudson’s men are last in the Premier League
Huddersfield Town seems condemned to relegate at the end of the 2018/2019 campaign. The hosts occupy the last place, with just 11 points after 23 matches, 13-40 aggregate. They have the worst attack in the league and is 10 points away from the first spot that would allow Hudson’s men to play in the Premier League next season.
The last match was an impossible mission for Huddersfield, hosting Manchester City. The Citizens easily won, 3-0, and made the hosts record their 10th defeat in the last 11 games in all competitions. Furthermore, Huddersfield hasn’t scored in four of the last five matches.
At home, the Terriers do have a problem finding the opposition’s goal, scoring just five times in 12 meetings.
Huddersfield Town line-up
- Goalkeeper: Jonas Lossl
- Backfield: Florent Hadergjonaj, Mathias Jorgensen, Christopher Schindler, Erik Durm
- Midfield: Isaac Mbenza, Jason Puncheon, Alex Pritchard, Jonathan Hogg, Elias Kachunga
- Forwards: Adama Diakhaby
Everton – The Toffees need to get more points from the road
Everton has an excellent squad this season and should be at least in the top half of the Premier League rankings. But the Toffees currently stand 11th, with 30 points and a 34-33 aggregate. The situation is bad on the road, where Everton has accumulated only 9 points this season and has four defeats in the last five matches in the Premier League.
And we saw da Silva’s men having difficulties when they were away from home in the FA Cup confrontation with Millwall, this weekend. The visitors lost 3-2 although the Portuguese manager sent his best players on the pitch.
But Everton’s problems this season have been in the back. Pairing Keane with Mina could sound good on paper, yet the reality is that you have two center-defenders at a slow pace.
- Goalkeeper: Jordan Pickford
- Backfield: Lucas Digne, Kurt Zouma, Michael Keane, Seamus Coleman
- Midfield: Ademola Lookman, Andre Gomes, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Bernard
- Forwards: Richarlison, Dominic Calvert-Lewin
Why Everton won’t lose this game – Odds and prediction
Everton is quite bad on the road, that’s a fact. But you can’t ignore the offensive power this team has. Da Silva affords to keep Tosun and Walcott on the bench, meaning that he has better solutions for the first 11. Four defeats in the last five away matches in the championship is an ugly stat, but the Toffees should do better against the rock-bottom team in the Premier League.
Huddersfield can’t produce quality offensive actions and that hurts this team. This means that the defense is always under pressure and sooner or later they’re going to make a mistake. We believe Everton has the force to obtain all three points, but as a precaution, we’re going for Everton or draw, 7/25 odds at Bethard.
