BUR vs EVE Predictions and Betting:.
On Saturday, Burnley are set to host Everton in what is expected to be a one-sided contest with the hosts given little chance in this clash. This is because of the fact that Burnley has failed to produce quality football for 3 months now, putting them in the relegation zone.
On the other hand, Everton did get off to a flyer but have seemed to lose their momentum in the middle with back to back defeats. So it is the matter of survival for Burnley while Everton would be itching to get back to the top 5 with a win on Saturday.

It is important for the side to do a better job in the coming games if the team wants to get out of the hole that they have fallen in. Looking at their recent most meeting, they faced humiliation at the hands of Manchester City where they stood no chance. They have scored just once in last 6 occasions this season.
Everton did get off to a great start to this season with back to back wins against quality teams that ensured them a top spot in the table. They shocked Spurs in the opener and secured easy victories against West Brom, Crystal Palace and Brighton.
After the brief break due to international fixtures, they put up a mighty challenge against the defending champions Liverpool which ended in a 2-2 draw. But from then on, it has been downhill for the side as they have lost four of the last five fixtures with the only win coming against Fulham.
In their last outing, Leeds United shocked them in their own backyard. At this stage, they are 7th in the points table with 5 wins and 4 defeats after 10 games.
