Premier League Betting: Oppose goals when Everton host Manchester City | Goal.com
26th September, 13:22Pep Guardiola's side travel to Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon and punters can be on both sides of the bet with the Betfair Exchange
Manchester City will be looking to build on their 8-0 victory over Watford last weekend when they travel to struggling Everton on Saturday evening.
Despite resting Raheem Sterling, Pep Guardiola's side raced into a 5-0 lead after just 18 minutes against the Hornets and are heavy favourites to claim their fourth win of the season at Goodison Park.
Indeed, Betfair Sportsbook make the champions just 3/10 (1.30) to claim victory with Everton offered at 19/2 (9.50), but punters can get more value on the Betfair Exchange where Marco Silva's men are 21/2 (11.5) and the visitors 1/3 (1.33).
What is the Betfair Exchange?
The Betfair Exchange is the world's largest sports betting exchange. It follows the model of a stock exchange but replacing share trading with betting odds on events in the world of sport, politics and entertainment. T&Cs apply.
On any betting market, there are two sides of the bet. On one side, there are those who think an event will happen (backers) and on the other, those who think it won't happen (the layers).
The Betfair Exchange allows customers to bet against each other rather than a traditional bookmaker, meaning users can set their own odds which may be longer than regular sportsbooks.
Backers and layers get bets 'matched' as long as they agree on a price (the odds) that an event will or won't happen.
Everton vs Manchester City Betting
There should be plenty of goals at Goodison Park on Saturday evening, with Manchester City having plundered 24 strikes already this season, including 10 away from home.
Over 2.5 goals has paid out in all seven of City's competitive matches this season and is priced at 4/9 (1.44) at Betfair Sportsbook, but punters can make the same wager at 1/2 (1.50) on the Betfair Exchange.
However, recent games between these teams have been typically low-scoring. Seven of the last 10 Premier League meetings have featured under three goals and a repeat is offered at 15/8 (2.87) on the Exchange - offering punters more value than the 8/5 (2.60) available on the Sportsbook.
How does the Betfair Exchange work?
By matching customers, rather than taking the risk itself, the Exchange provides the option to 'lay' - betting on something not to happen.
Betting against other customers removes the need for the margin that fixed-odds bookmakers incorporate into their prices and provides the opportunity for a more efficient marketplace, which is why you can often get better odds on the Betfair Exchange. Instead, customers pay a small commission, but on winnings only.
