The relegation favorites are starting to show they weaknesses in recent fixtures, after a rather good start of the season. Hull, Burnley, and Sunderland are all in this situation – with Burnley managing a win every now and then. They are the best of the worst so far, but do they stand a chance against Everton, even with home ground advantage?
Burnley vs Everton – 22/10/2016
Betting Odds: Burnley 6.00 or 5/1 Draw 3.80 or 14/5 Everton 1.66 or 4/6
Burnley’s only two wins of the season came at their home ground. Although we can’t really speak about the one against Liverpool, where they only had 19% possession, the game against Watford proved that the team is capable of scoring and defending well for most of a game, meaning that they’re able to win points.
This is absolutely crucial in the battle to avoid relegation – making sure the team is still able to produce game-winning performances. The player’s morale isn’t that low at the moment and they should be able to compete against Everton quite fine.
On the other hand, the Toffees come after 3 games in which they haven’t won. The 1-1 draw away against City can count as a win, but the other games (1-1 at home against Palace and a 0-1 defeat against Bournemouth) really raised some eyebrows regarding the quality of the team.
They really need more than Lukaku and Barkley if they want to connect good performances and shoot out the table. This weekend, they want all three points, since they play a team which is clearly inferior in terms of quality and experience.
Burnley vs Everton Betting Tips
Our idea for the game is to bet that Everton will avoid defeat. Although X2 shouldn’t offer you great odds, it’s a very safe bet – just like the one that Everton will score.
We think Lukaku is one of the people who will find his name on the scoresheet, since he loves playing against small clubs, and if you’re looking for a high-odd bet – Everton to win.
