Games are coming at a rather quick rate for Premier League sides at the moment as we enter the final third of the campaign.

Indeed, there are some sides that could do with playing a number of games in quick succession as they are desperate for the points in an attempt to escape the drop to the Championship.

Everton and Newcastle United are two of those sides that can be included in that particular category, with both sides looking a little precarious at the moment; although it is easy to argue that the Toon Army appear to be better off than their opponents on Thursday night.

However, the trip to Goodison Park might not be as rewarding as Eddie Howe’s side will hope it will be, especially if the odds made available at a certain bookmaker are to be used as a form of guidance when trying to predict what may happen.

Punters who use the Betway Sportsbook will find that Everton have been priced as the favourites for the match with odds of 13/10 at the time of writing, with the Magpies having been given an outside chance.

Indeed, those that want to take advantage of the prices that have been provided can look to do so and combine those with a number of exceptional bonus offers that the operator provides, including the special odds boost promotion.

Everton are in desperate need for the three points as the situation in Merseyside looks far from comfortable for everyone at Goodison Park.

Frank Lampard would have been instilled as Rafa Benitez’s replacement to provide the Toffees with immediate results, however things have been far from what many would have hoped for.

Currently, the team is on a run of four straight defeats in their last five Premier League games, which has left them teetering above the relegation zone, level on points with Watford on 22 and with one more than Burnley.

Of course, they do have the comfort of having a number of extra games to play compared to many of their rivals, but Newcastle will provide a rather difficult challenge.

The Magpies have enjoyed a resurgence under Howe and have managed to climb up the table in recent weeks.

They were on an incredible run of nine games unbeaten before being defeated by Chelsea at the weekend, although they were extremely unlucky not to be able to get something from the game.

They are still far from being safe at this moment, though, so expect them to go for all three points on Thursday night, too.
