Everton vs Huddersfield odds: No Richarlison, no problem
Marco Silva got off to impressive starts at Hull and Watford, and he’s doing the same with the Toffees, who are unbeaten after four games and clear 1/2 favourites in William Hill’s Everton vs Huddersfield odds.
They’ll have to do it without the suspended Richarlison who, after scoring three goals in his first two appearances, got sent off in the first half of the third.
However, the Merseysiders struck twice after his dismissal at Bournemouth and put three past Rotherham in midweek, so they’re not short of firepower.
Huddersfield are, and their miserable Premier League opening was compounded by a 2-0 EFL Cup defeat to Championship slow starters Stoke. No wonder the Terriers are 13/2 outsiders to win at Goodison Park, with the draw a 14/5 shot.
Head-to-head (most recent first): Huddersfield 0-2 Everton, Everton 2-0 Huddersfield, Everton 5-1 Huddersfield, Everton 2-1 Huddersfield, Huddersfield 1-1 Everton, Huddersfield 0-0 Everton

Free betting tips: Everton vs Huddersfield odds
Prediction: Everton 2-0 Huddersfield @ 5/1
Everton have scored exactly two goals in all three of their Premier League matches under Silva, and won both of their showdowns with David Wagner’s side 2-0 last season.
A 2-0 win for the hosts is therefore the first of our Everton vs Huddersfield predictions at odds of 5/1.
Best Bet: Everton to win to nil @ 6/5
The one obstacle the Toffees have to overcome is to maintain their tendency of grabbing two goals, and then shut up shop to convert into a win-to-nil. We’re tipping at Everton to do just that, with odds of 6/5 to keep their first clean sheet since April. The last one they obtained was against their visitors, who are likely to prove willing accomplices again.
The Terriers have already been shut out by Chelsea, Cardiff and Stoke this term, with their sole strike a very much glory-free consolation at 3-0 down to Man City in a game they lost 6-1.
Rewind back to March and the strugglers have scored a frankly disastrous four goals in 14 fixtures.
How Huddersfield must wish they had an attacking threat like Walcott, who has silenced claims that he’s past his best since moving to Goodison Park from Arsenal in the winter.
The winger didn’t just net in his club’s last two top-flight contests against Southampton and Bournemouth, he did so first on both occasions, and Everton vs Huddersfield odds have Theo priced at a 5/1 tip to break the deadlock once more.
