Brentford v Everton Odds, Preview and Tips
Game time & date: 1500 BST, Saturday August 27
Location: Gtech Community Stadium, Brentford
Last result between the two: Everton 2-3 Brentford, Premier League, May 2022
Brentford lost to Fulham last weekend but it has been a good start to the season for the Bees, even if they failed to follow up that stunning home win over Manchester United by collecting more points.
Everton picked up their first point of the season at the weekend, coming from behind to earn a 1-1 draw at home to Nottingham Forest, but there is a lot of pressure on the shoulders of Frank Lampard, whose side are just above the bottom three.
The last time these sides met was a five-goal thriller edged by Brentford at Goodison Park back in May, but where is the best value to be found in the Brentford v Everton betting odds to win this weekend?
Bees adapting to post-Eriksen era
Brentford were always likely to find it harder this season after star man Christian Eriksen opted to move on to Manchester United, but the Bees have shown enough to suggest they can stay up again.
Home form is going to be key for Thomas Frank’s side. They have only lost one of their past six home games in the league, keeping five clean sheets during that run of matches in front of their own fans.
The Bees stung United in their last home game so the smart money for those browsing the Brentford v Everton betting odds to win could be on backing the hosts to take the points.
Brentford are 19/20 to win with 888Sport, while the 9/4 on a Bees win to nil stands out here as well. Brentford won this game 1-0 last season, taking the points thanks to Ivan Toney’s first-half penalty.
Toffees to come unstuck again
Everton narrowly avoided relegation to the Championship last season, but the signs are it will be another season of struggle for the Toffees, who are facing interest in young forward Anthony Gordon.
Lampard’s side have only scored twice in their three Premier League games this season and are likely to still be without their only senior striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who is out with a knee injury. Everton have problems at the back too and are yet to keep a clean sheet this season, while they have conceded at least two goals in nine of their last 11 away matches in the Premier League.
It is hard to see beyond a home victory in the Brentford v Everton betting odds to win here, with the Toffees’ poor start to the season expected to continue.
As there have been over 2.5 goals scored in Brentford’s last seven Premier League games and it was 3-2 to the Bees when they won at Everton in May, this could be an entertaining clash for the neutrals.
Everton’s bad start to the new campaign seems likely to carry on in west London, with the Bees odds-on to take the points in the Brentford v Everton betting odds to win.
The 19/20 with 888Sport for Brentford to beat Everton is a good place to start, while the 9/4 on a Bees win to nil is also worth considering given the Bees beat the Toffees 1-0 at home last term.
On the correct scores market, 888’s price of 8/1 on a 2-0 home victory for Brentford is good value and Toney to score first at 4/1 with 888Sport is another option to consider for this one as well.
