Brentford v Everton betting tips: Early promise has faded
Odds and preview for Sunday’s Premier League game
Promising starts to the season have fizzled out for these two teams who are now out of form as we pick out some possible Brentford v Everton tips.
Everton are bottom of the Premier League form table over the last six matches with just two points while Brentford have not fared much better with only one win in that time.
There are just two points separating the teams ahead of Sunday’s match, which kicks off at 2pm at the Brentford Community Stadium and is live on Sky Sports.
Brentford v Everton match odds
Everton’s 3-0 defeat at Manchester City last weekend was understandable given the quality of the opposition but that was a fourth loss in five matches.
The dip in form has resulted in Everton slipping into the bottom half of the Premier League despite winning four of their first six games.
They struggled to create chances against City on another frustrating day which was compounded by an injury to Demarai Gray and yellow card for Richarlison.
Gray left the field with a groin problem after just 17 minutes and now joins Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Tom Davies, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Andre Gomes on the sidelines while Richarlison will serve a one-match ban.
Brentford ended a run of four straight defeats last weekend but had to settle for a point in a thrilling 3-3 draw despite twice taking the lead.
Backing both teams to score has paid out in six of their last seven matches and that is an option for Saturday at 20/23.
Brentford v Everton head-to-head
This is the first meeting between these teams since a League Cup tie in 2010 when they shared a 1-1 draw at Griffin Park before the Bees caused an upset by winning a penalty shoot-out 4-3.
The first goalscorer that night was a young Seamus Coleman and the full-back is 40/1 to repeat the trick this weekend!
Brentford v Everton key battles
Brentford have shown little fear in their first season in the Premier League with wins against Arsenal, Wolves and West Ham but now seek a first home victory since the opening weekend.
Striker Ivan Toney (pictured above) has maybe not had quite the impact Brentford had hoped after his goal-scoring exploits in the Championship.
Salomon Rondon may lead the line for the Toffees in the absence of Richarlison.
He is yet to get off the mark in nine appearances since arriving as a free agent in the summer but is 23/10 to break his duck in Brentford v Everton betting tips.
