Let’s look at our top Everton v Burnley betting tips. Round 37 of the Premier League season gets underway on Friday night at Goodison Park where ninth placed Everton look to boost their points tally by three when welcoming Burnley in 15th to town for this 8.00pm kick-off. The home side have under-performed again this season and the campaign will be marked down as another disappointment by fans of the club who were promised so much more back in the summer. Everton prepare for this clash with a record reading 14 wins against 14 defeats and eight draws, but they have won three and drawn one of their last five.
A Closer Look at the Everton v Burnley
A home win here would move Everton up into eighth, leapfrogging Leicester while keeping alive their faint hopes of ending in the top five, at least overnight. The Toffees claimed an impressive win over Man Utd when last out in front of their own fans, smashing Ole’s side 4-0 in a result that dealt a huge blow to their opponent’s chances of a top-four finish. Richarlison got the ball moving with a goal inside 13 minutes before Sigurdsson, Digne and Walcott added their names to the scoresheet.
Solskjaer was forced to apologise to supporters of his club, while his opposite number declared himself pleased with a round of clinical finishing. Bookies seem impressed and have the home win marked as 6/10 favourite, a price you’ll get at Ladbrokes. The jolly has kept a clean-sheet in each of their last two and a third makes plenty of appeal. Everton to win to nil is 17/10 – top price at Ladbrokes.
Little to Play For
Burnley make this trip to Merseyside with little to play for, having already secured their place in the top-flight for another season thanks to a run of wins. Nine points taken from three games lifted the pressure, nudging them clear of the danger zone and they are now nine points clear of Cardiff in 18th. The Bluebirds aren’t down yet but it won’t be long before their relegation is confirmed, and they join fellow Welsh side Swansea back in the Championship. Since racking up three wins on the bounce Burnley appear to have taken their foot off the gas and board the team bus on the back of a defeat last time out.
The visitors enjoyed home advantage over Man City last weekend but were written off by the majority, with bookies pricing The Cityzens as red-hot favourites. The game went as expected, in terms of City collecting the points, but last season’s champions were made to work for their win, nicking a 1-0 thanks to a goal from Aguero midway through the second-half.
It was a real scrap in the middle of the park and The Clarets showed their fighting spirit on that front, but they finished with just 30% of the match possession, ending without a shot on target. Sean Dyche told members of the sporting press in his post-match chat he took pleasure from the mentality shown by his side, making things as awkward as possible for the stars of City. Traders with every major firm again have Burnley marked as no-hopers, offering 5/1 at William Hill.
