Everton v Burnley Betting Preview, Odds & Tips

  • Date: 03/05/19
  • Time: 20:00
  • Venue: Goodison Park
  • Channel: Sky Sports Main Event

In what could be seen as a dead rubber game conceivably the highest position the Toffee’s could finish is 7th, but are unlikely to finish any lower than 10th. Burnley on the other hand are safe, but could finish as high as 12th. This game is dependent on whose squad has less eyes on the beach!

It is important in games like these, that betting positions are not taken with big liabilities and is dependent on analysing probable team strategies and general views on the game itself.

Team News

Yerry Mina (injury) Andre Gomes (suspension) are unavailable for selection, with Marco Silva is potentially going with the same line up as the last game.

The visitors are likely to remain relatively unchanged following their narrow defeat to City last weekend.

Potential Everton Starting XI: Pickford, Coleman, Keane, Zouma, Digne, Schneiderlin, Gueye, Richarlison, Sigurdsson, Bernard and Calvert-Lewin

Potential Burnley Starting XI: Heaton, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor, McNeil, Cork, Westwood, Hendrick, Barnes and Wood

Head To Head

  • Everton 3-0-3 (last six)

Key Stats & Facts

  • Everton have kept a clean sheet in the last four at home, have won their last three at home and have been under 2.5 goals scored in five of Everton’s last six in the Premier League.
  • Burnley have netted at least twice in five of the last six on the road, and have also seen over 2.5 goals in the process.

Betting Odds

  • Everton – 8/13 Betway
  • Draw –16/5 Unibet
  • Burnley – 21/4 BetVictor

The Verdict

Looking at the stats, with Everton well positioned at 8/13 considering the home advantage and bias that odds compilers give when pricing up does lean towards the home win. On contrary to the visitor stats, taking on the home team to score goals is certainly worth opposing.

With Everton keeping clean sheets in five of the last six, both sides have nothing that credible to play for. Looking at the goal line is set at 2.5 and with the both to score market around the same price cannot see Everton keeping a clean sheet, but netting more than two goals. Therefore, with Marathonbet offering a smidgen under even money on fewer than three goals could be the way to lean towards. At 1.98 Is almost as good as evens with evens available with Smarkets.

With a similar display for both sides could see this one out with very little incident.

Recommended Bets

  • 1pt – Under 2.5 goals – 1/1 (Smarkets)
