Everton v Brentford: Prediction, Tips and Odds

Everton had two reasons to celebrate on Wednesday. Not only did their 2-0 victory over Liverpool boost their hopes of Premier League survival put it also put a huge dent in their local rivals' title chances.

It would take a serious collapse for the Toffees to go down and they could even mathematically secure their survival if results go their way this weekend.

Brentford are two points above Everton in the table and should also be in high spirits after their 5-1 thrashing of Luton last time out.

Everton v Brentford betting tips and predictions

Everton to win - 7/5

Everton would be above Brentford in the Premier League table if it were not for their points deduction and they can show their superiority at Goodison Park.

Wednesday's performance against Liverpool was seriously impressive from Dyche's men. They did not see a lot of the ball but defended bravely and took their chances at the other end.

It was Everton's third win in their last four matches and all of those victories came at Goodison Park, which should again generate a good atmosphere on Saturday.

Brentford, meanwhile, head into this game on a five-match unbeaten streak, having won each of their last two fixtures.

But those victories only came against lowly Luton and Sheffield United and were their sole wins in their last 11 matches in all competitions.

The Bees themselves have racked up 17 defeats in the top-flight this season and they have struggled away from home, picking up only 14 points on their travels.

This is a bit of a dead-rubber with both of these sides unlikely to face the drop but Everton are in a slightly more precarious position and that extra fight should see them over the line.

Under 2.5 goals - 1/1

Despite hovering above the drop zone for most of the season, Everton's rearguard has been much tighter than the teams around them and a low-scoring match could be on the cards at Goodison Park.

The Toffees have conceded only 48 goals in the league this season, giving them the best defensive record in the bottom half and they have conceded fewer league strikes than the likes of Aston Villa (50), Tottenham (49), Manchester United (50) and Newcastle (54).

Indeed, it is as a result of their poor attacking play that they find themselves in trouble.

And while they are a good bet to win this match, their last three wins have finished 2-0, 2-0 and 1-0 so under 2.5 goals looks another wise selection.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin to score a header - 6/1

A header from Dominic Calvert-Lewin sealed the win for Everton over Liverpool on Wednesday and the Toffees striker could again pose an aerial threat on Saturday.

That was Calvert-Lewin's first headed goal of the season in the Premier League but he looked lively and that effort should have done his confidence the world of good.

But rather than just backing Calvert-Lewin to find the net, punters can get more value out of the market by by supporting him to score a header.

Only Arsenal (19) have scored more goals from set pieces than Everton (17) this season and, if the forward gets himself in the right positions, there should be a decent few chances to score with his head.
