Burnley vs Everton 3 March 2018: EPL Soccer Preview and Predictions

The English Premier League will be back in action this weekend and the round of games will be opened by Burnley as they play host to Everton. One of these sides has overperformed greatly this season while the other team has underperformed drastically so I am expecting a good game of football since both clubs have something to prove.

Burnley are a team that have played very well all season and now they will hope to get some points against bigger clubs. Playing Everton is never an easy task but at home, Burnley will fancy their chances. The home team has been very organized all season and at home, they seem to find an extra boost that has been very effective for them.

Everton, on the other hand, are a team that needs to win. This side spent a lot of money over the past few years and they should be getting better results than they are at the moment. This will be a tough game for the Toffees since visiting Burley has been a tough ask all season. It will be important for the likes of Wayne Rooney and Gylfi Sigurdsson to step up since it will be the big names that could win the visitors the game.

Taking all that into consideration, I am going to predict that this game ends as a draw. Everton have too much talent to lose to Burnley while the home side has enough fight not to lose meaning that the draw is a fair result. We are getting a good price betting on the draw and as a result that is bet which I am going to suggest that we make. In addition to that, both teams should struggle to score due to Burley’s strong defense so the under 2.5 goals is a bet which I also like.
