MONACO - NOVEMBER 21: Timo Werner of RB Leipzig celebrates scoring his sides second goal during the UEFA Champions League group G match between AS Monaco and RB Leipzig at Stade Louis II on November 21, 2017 in Monaco, Monaco.

Everton returns to Goodison Park on a high and looks to ride the momentum past struggling Southampton when the teams face off in an English Premier League match on Monday. Everton beat rival Liverpool 2-0 last Saturday, its first win at Anfield since 1999, and it is in seventh place, level on points with its crosstown rival. Southampton has been bitten hard by the injury bug and has won just once in its past 13 EPL games. It is in 14th place, just eight points clear of the relegation zone.

Kickoff from Liverpool, England is scheduled for 3 p.m. ET. William Hill Sportsbook lists Everton as the 0.5-goal and -105 money-line favorite in its latest Everton vs. Southampton odds, and the over-under for total goals scored is 2.5. Before making any Southampton vs. Everton picks, check out the English Premier League predictions from SportsLine's Martin Green.

After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper. Since then, his European soccer picks have been spot-on. Green has generated over $16,900 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season.

Now, Green has set his sights on Everton vs. Southampton and revealed his best bets. You can only see them over at SportsLine.

  • Everton vs. Southampton spread: Everton -0.5
  • Everton vs. Southampton over-under: 2.5 goals
  • Everton vs. Southampton money line: Everton -105, Southampton +285, Draw +260
  • EVE: The Toffees are 10-0-5 in their last 15 at home against Southampton.
  • SOU: The Saints have scored first in 14 of the 25 games, going 7-3-4.

Why you should back Everton

The Toffees (12-4-8, 40 points) don't want to squander their momentum, and they will get top scorer Dominic Calvert-Lewin back to face the decimated Saints side. Calvert-Lewin is tied for third in the league with 13 goals, and he will join Richarlison, who tallied a goal (his fourth of the season) against Liverpool, to face a team that has yielded 24 goals in its past eight games.

James Rodriguez and Gylfi Sigurdsson, who also scored against the Reds, are the playmakers and have combined for nine goals and six assists. Lucas Digne is one of the best defenders in the league and helps push the attack, tying for fifth in the EPL with six assists. Midfielder Tom Davies is a superb tackler and has been a relentless presence in front of the defense.

Why you should back Southampton

Epl Fantasy Expert Picks

The Saints (8-6-11, 30 points) are without numerous starters, but they proved in a draw with Chelsea and a win against Liverpool that they can rise to the occasion. They also face an Everton side that has struggled mightily at home. Only four of the Toffees' 12 EPL wins this season and only 35 percent of their points (14 of 40) have come at Goodison Park.

Southampton beat Everton 2-0 in October, and it is looking to take the league double over the Toffees for the first time since 1997-98. The Saints have talented forwards who could pose problems. Danny Ings, who has a team-high eight goals, should lead the attack along with Che Adams (four). James Ward-Prowse (five assists) can set teammates up from his midfield spot.
