Burnley v Lincoln FA Cup, 18th February 12.30pm

Well, it wasn’t the big money, high profile draw that non-league side Lincoln wanted for their fifth round tie in the FA Cup. However, they get a shot at a Premier League side nonetheless as they head to Turf Moor. Lincoln have had some brilliant moments in the FA Cup this season, so is there more to come from them? Burnley are a great home side and it will be interesting to see if they send out a full-strength side to try and deal with the underdogs. This is a banana skin that the Clarets would like to avoid slipping on and this is a great chance for Sean Dyche’s men to launch themselves into the final eight. Burnley are 2/7 for the win, with the draw at 17/4 and Lincoln at 19/2.

Burnley v Lincoln FA Cup Betting Tips

Well given the form that Burnley have been in of late at Turf Moor, the Premier League side will be expected to be the ones booking a spot in the quarter finals of the FA Cup. This surely is too good of a chance for them to miss out on as they take on non-league side Lincoln on Saturday. Burnley have been fantastic on home soil this season having gone W11 D2 L3 across all competitions and if you break that down to just their last eight games at Turf Moor, then their form reads W7 D1, with that draw happening against Chelsea in the Premier League last weekend. So it has been great stuff from them and they have kept four clean sheets in their last five games at home as well so a Burnley to win to nil at William Hill looks good value out of the gate at a price of even money with the bookmaker. These two have faced off against each other before, quite a bit actually but not since the 1998/99 Division Two season when both games ended in a 1-1 draw.

Burnley have made progress past Sunderland (after a replay win on home soil) and then Bristol City at Turf Moor in the FA Cup this season. They haven’t shipped a single goal yet in the tournament this term and therefore it is likely that the game is going to go under 2.5 goals and at William Hill that option will fetch you a price of 6/5 which looks bags of value. In the anytime goalscorer market Burnley have Andre Gray at 4/5 and Sam Vokes at even money to get a goal on the board. The Clarets have actually gone unbeaten in their last seven games against Lincoln (W4 D3) but again you are talking about a record from quite some time ago. But both teams have scored in each of the last six meetings and if you fancy the underdogs pulling something special out and getting a goal on the board the best way to cover that would be in the William Hill both teams to score market for a price of 21/20. This is a great draw for the Clarets and a big chance for them to continue their great form at Turf Moor.

It has been a great run in the FA Cup for the Imps and if they can get back to Sincil Bank with a draw, then that would be a huge win for them as well. They are in great form having gone W7 L1 in their last eight games across all competitions. This will be their eighth game in the FA Cup this season where they have played out a W5 D2 record so far. Only two of those games were out on the road, in taking a win Guiseley and then a draw against Ipswich. The Imps pulled off a 3-1 home win over much-changed Brighton side in the last round to keep their dreams alive. They have scored exactly one goal; in each of their last three visits to Turf Moor and because of that there is a 15/2 option at William Hill on a 2-1 correct score in favour of the home side. The shortest priced Correct Score option is 5/1 on a Burnley 2-0 win. The Imps have come a long, long way to end up at Turf Moor in the fifth round. Because of the strong efficiency of the Clarets at home, this is where their underdog dreams may well come to an end.

Who will win – Burnley v Lincoln FA Cup Predictions

Lincoln would have liked a glamorous home tie against someone like Chelsea or Man Utd, but their FA Cup run is likely to come to end at the humble Turf Moor venue instead. Burnley are going so well at home and aren’t giving up much that they should find a way to prevail in this one. It probably isn’t a game which is going to go over 2.5 goals so look for a low scoring affair and therefore a Burnley 2-0 correct score option on the fixture is going to have some appeal. Burnley are unlikely to let this opportunity slip through their fingers.
