Burnley vs. Everton – EPL, December 5, 2020

Both these sides will be looking to get back to winning ways when they meet at Turf Moor in the early kick off on Saturday.

Everton has slipped since the heady opening weeks of the season but will still be confident of coming away from Burnley with something from this one.

Burnley to Win +265
The Draw +240
Everton to Win +100

These odds show how much Everton’s table-topping form of the first few games of the season has deserted Carlo Ancelotti’s team. The value in the Burnley win depends on whether you think Everton is going through a blip at the moment – or that it is in a far more realistic league position. For what its worth, the draw bet looks interesting to me.

Burnley vs. Everton Match Preview

Burnley finally picked up its first league win of the season immediately after coming back from the international break. But Sean Dyche’s side was cruelly exposed by a rampant Manchester City last week. The defeat was probably predictable, but the 5-0 thrashing showed up the gulf between the two clubs.

But it is not all doom and gloom at Turf Moor. Dyche is in the position of being able to bring through a few younger players into the squad – and New Zealand striker Chris Wood is doing his best to give his team an advantage up front. There’s no doubt that it will be another tough season for Burnley – but it will give as good as it gets.

Everton should be confident of winning this one but there is a lingering doubt over the defensive side of things at Goodison Park. Dominic Calvert-Lewin and James Rodriguez may be rightly attracting most of the headlines but Everton has conceded at least one goal in every game this season apart from the opening fixture.

Ancelotti will be doing everything he can to stop that statistic continuing but Burnley’s strength could pose a real problem on Saturday. What Everton has as an advantage is that Burnley just hasn’t been scoring many goals. But it might need to find the net down the other end a few times here to ensure the three points return home.

Burnley vs. Everton Pick

  • Everton to Win

I have been very tempted to go for the draw bet here, as I believe that Burnley is exactly the kind of team that Everton might struggle with this season. But positive odds for an away win has tipped me in the direction of the visiting team. Everton needs to up its game, but this could be a very handy three points.
