The Clarets are on a bit of a slide with a three-match losing streak currently going on. Can they snap out of their slump at home against West Ham on the weekend? The Hammers aren’t doing much better with their form currently as they have gone without a win in five league outings. Read our Burnley vs West Ham betting tips for more.
West Ham 2/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on 7th November 2019 at 1:26 p.m.)
The Clarets lost heavily out at Sheffield United last weekend and their defence has been going through a tough time. They are currently on a three-match losing streak at the moment and they have conceded at least two goals in each of those as well. That’s four times in their last five games played that they have conceded at least two goals.
All three wins that Burnley have taken this season have been on home soil. They are W3 L2 from their five home games played this season and have won two of their last three, the victories over Everton and Norwich coming with clean sheets. It has been three clean sheets in five home games from the Clarets this season.
There have been over 2.5 goals in each of Burnley’s last three games and they have scored at least two goals in each of their last three matches against West Ham. The Clarets have scored three-quarters of their home goals this season in the second half of fixtures. There are only three teams in the league who have conceded more league goals in the EPL this season than Burnley.
West Ham and Burnley traded home wins in the league last season
Burnley have lost just one of the last four against West Ham (W2 D1)
West Ham have won 3 of their last 5 visits to Turf Moor in all competitions
Burnley have scored at least two goals in each of their last three against West Ham
The Hammers have failed to pick up a win in any of their last five games and have taken just one victory in their last seven. So their season has dimmed somewhat after their bright start to the season. West Ham have conceded at least two goals in four of their last five league outings. Their away form sits at W1 D3 L1.
Considering that they have yet to visit any of the current top six, then that will have been a little bit of a disappointing return them. The Hammers have taken one clean sheet only on their travels but only two of their five road games have gone over 2.5 goals. All three league wins that West Ham have taken this season in the league have been by a two-goal margin.
There has been a trend of West Ham beating level at half time in four of their five away games. West Ham suffered a 2-0 loss at Everton in their last away games. That is three losses in their last four league outings. Last weekend they suffered a 2-3 loss at home against Newcastle. West Ham have scored in all but one of their last six league games, but the form hasn’t been there.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on 7th November 2019 at 1:26 p.m.)
Punters would have a hard time trusting either of these defensively and that could lead to goals flying around in this fixture. West Ham are struggling to complete a comprehensive 90 minutes of action and could once again be there for the taking. Home win.

The Blades are doing fantastically well up in the top flight, holding down a top ten place heading back into the weekend. They are unbeaten in their last three played now. They will fancy their chances of collecting a home win on Saturday as they host Burnley who have just lost their way with back to back defeats. Read our Sheffield United vs Burnley betting tips for more.
Sheffield United 11/10
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 29th, 2019 at 1:15 p.m.)
The Blades are unbeaten in their last three league games after playing out a 1-1 draw with West Ham on the weekend. In their last home game, they scored a big success, getting the better of Arsenal with a 1-0 victory. That leaves Sheffield United with a W2 L3 record at Bramall Lane. The win over Everton snapped a three-match losing streak at home which they were on.
They are struggling a bit for goals though, with only two goals scored two goals in their last four games. The Blades have failed to score in half of their last six. In total, Chris Wilder’s men have scored only three goals at home this season. But their success this season has been built on how organised defensively they have been.
They have only conceded 4 home goals, and no team has conceded fewer league goals than they have done this season in the top flight. Three of the four goals which they have shipped at Bramall Lane have come against them in the second half of games. Just three times have the Blades opened the scoring this season. Just two teams have scored fewer goals than they have done.
Burnley are unbeaten in five games against Sheffield United
This is the first meeting since the 2010/11 Championship
Burnley have won three of the last four against United
Four of the last six meetings have over 2.5 goals
The Clarets have suffered back-to-back league defeats. Last weekend they were blown away at Turf Moor by Chelsea in a 2-4 loss. So they need to steady the ship somehow. Last time out on the road Burnley suffered a 2-1 loss at Leicester. So that has left them on the hunt for their first away win of the campaign (D3 L2).
The Clarets have found the back of the net in all five away games, but they have yet to earn a clean sheet on their travels. In their last two league games, home and away, they have conceded at least two goals now. In total now it is a seven-match winless streak of away from that Burnley are on in the top flight.
They have managed just one victory in their last ten top-flight road games. So that is the extent of their struggles away from Turf Moor. Interestingly in all the games this season from which Burnely have taken at least a point away from, have all been against teams who are currently occupying a spot down in the bottom half of the table. With the Blades up in the top ten, how with the Clarets handle themselves at Bramall Lane?
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 29th, 2019 at 1:15 p.m.)
Sheffield United are so good at the back and that comes with a price of course because they are not a free-scoring side. But you will back them to withstand any pressure coming from Burnley and there’s no reason why they can’t actually pick them off. Home win.

The Blues are making good headway now in the Premier League as they have strung together a three-match winning streak. They will sustain their top-four status with at least a point out of this trip to Turf Moor. Burnley had a four-match unbeaten streak snapped last weekend with a loss against Leicester. Read our Burnley v Chelsea betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 23rd, 2019 at 9:12 p.m.)
Burnley suffered a 2-1 road loss at Leicester last weekend. The Clarets have produced some decent form on home soil in this season’s top flight. They have gone W3 L1 in their four played so far, winning their last two. The Clarets have banked a clean sheet in their last two home fixtures as well. The one loss that they suffered at home was a 3-0 reverse against the visiting Liverpool.
The Clarets have only given up three goals on home soil this season, scoring at an average of 1.5 per game. The game against Liverpool is the one home game in which Burnley have conceded this season. The Clarets are on a five-match scoring streak currently in the top flight, and two-thirds of their home goals this season have been after the halftime break. In total, Burnley have opened the scoring in five of nine league games.
Only four teams have picked up more points at home than Burnley have done in this season’s EPL. So they have that going for them. It all suggests that they are not going to be pushed around by Chelsea at all. Striker Chris Wood has four goals in his last five Premier League appearances, and he has opened the scoring in two of Burnley’s last four fixtures.
Chelsea earned four points against Burnley last season
The Blues have scored at least two goals in 8 of their last 10 EPL games against Burnley
Burnley have won one of the previous ten EPL meetings with Chelsea
Chelsea are W4 D1 in their five EPL fixtures at Turf Moor
Chelsea appears to have hit their stride. It is a three-match winning streak that they have put together after grinding out a 1-0 success at home against Newcastle last weekend. They have taken a win in four of their last five, the one exception in that sequence being a reverse against Liverpool. Away from home Chelsea have taken a good W3 L1 record and they are on a three-match winning streak away from home.
Notable about Chelsea’s away form is that they have scored at least three goals in each of their last three away games. They are, however, still looking for their first clean sheet away from home this season. So while their stats are high, it’s also worth noting that they haven’t visited a team yet who are currently sitting in the top half of the table. So this should be a tougher test for them with the Clarets sitting in eighth.
Chelsea have averaged 3 goals per away game this season with all four of their road fixtures going over 3.5 goals. Both teams have scored in three of their four away games. Chelsea have been leading at the break in two for their four away games and they have notched up two-thirds of their away goals in the first half of matches. In total, Chelsea are on an eight-match scoring streak of Premier League form. They have opened the scoring in 7 of 9 games.
While Chelsea have been scoring well away from home, Burnley’s defence at home has been superb, but they may not be able to subdue them totally. Chelsea have the goalscoring edge over the Clarets, so the away win & both teams to score is a good fit.

Leicester are still sat inside the top four in the league despite a loss against Liverpool last time out. They gave as good as they got against the league leaders, but just couldn’t quite get the result. They will be hoping for better at home this weekend as they welcome Burnley. The Clarets though are in good form themselves. Read our Leicester v Burnley betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 17th, 2019 at 2:35 p.m.)
The Foxes lost 2-1 at Liverpool last time out in the league, but they really threw down a big challenge to the title-favourites. Leicester have won four of their last six league games (L2) the two defeats in that sequence happening out on the road at Man Utd and Liverpool. So they are undefeated at the King Power where they have taken a W3 D1 record from their four played.
It is a three-match winning streak of form that Leicester are currently on at home, scoring at least two goals in each of those successes. The Foxes have tallied 10 goals in their last three home games in the EPL. There have now been over 2.5 goals in all but one of Leicester’s last six Premier League games. Brendan Rodgers has a full squad available aside from Matty James.
The Foxes have averaged 2.5 goals per home game this season while they have managed to stay defensively tight. They have conceded just two goals at the King Power this season. Leicester have also been leading at half time in two of their four home games (D1 L1). 71% of all of the league goals scored by Leicester in this campaign has been in the second half of games.
The Foxes took four points against Burnley last season
Leicester are unbeaten in eight home games against the Clarets
Both teams have scored in two of the last seven meetings
There has been one away win in the last eight clashes
Burnley are on a four-match undefeated streak of league form (W2 D2) but they have yet to have a taste of victory on their travels. They are D3 L1 only in their four away games, each of their last three away from Turf Moor ending in a draw. Two of those three draws were a 1-1 scoreline, the other a 2-2 tie against Aston Villa.
Burnley starts the game only two points behind fourth-placed Leicester, so three points away from home against one of the teams above them would be huge. The Clarets are on a four-match scoring streak of form in the top flight and just once this season on the road have they been trailing at the halftime break away from Turf Moor. Burnley have conceded the opening goal in three of their four away games
Burnley can get themselves on the scoreboard at the King Power, but will probably come up short. Leicester have put together some great home form and may just have the edge in what should be a close battle between two in-form teams.
18th October 2019 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Clarets will be happy with their returns as they are starting the weekend up in the top half of the table. They will certainly be a lot happier than Aston Villa who are looking badly in need of a win. Villa couldn’t convert against ten-man Arsenal last weekend, despite twice taking the lead. Read our Aston Villa v Burnley betting tips for more.
Aston Villa 5/4
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 24th, 2019 at 5:35 p.m.)
The Villains missed a huge opportunity last weekend for three points. They twice held the lead at Arsenal and were 2-1 up heading into the final ten minutes. They were also facing ten men. But Villa collapsed at the end and lost 3-2. That was some blow and it leaves them with a W1 D1 L4 record this season. Their home record is W1 D1 L1. Aston Villa have scored in all three of their home games, so there is that positive. They have also taken back to back clean sheets at Villa Park.
They have a big run of games coming up now. Boss Dean Smith is going to need some positive results in his next three matches which are this one against Burnley, Norwich and Brighton. If they are still sat in the relegation zone after than, then Smith’s job is going to be hanging by a thread. Incidentally, their following two games after that three-match sequence are against Man City and Liverpool. Villa have some work to do then. Of the nine league goals conceded, seven of them have been after the halftime break. They have opened the scoring in three of their six games.
The last time the two met was in the 2014/15 EPL
Burnley took four points against Villa in that season
Villa have lost just one of their last six against Burnley in all competitions
Burnley’s last win at Villa Park was in 1973
The Clarets picked up a tidy three points at home against Norwich last weekend to move them on to a W2 D2 L2 record this season. They are yet to have a taste of victory out on their travels though where they are D2 L1. Burnley have drawn their last two away games 1-1 against Wolves and Brighton. Just one of their last four games in the top flight have made it over 2.5 goals.
The Clarets didn’t have a great time away from Turf Moor last season. They have taken just one victory in their last eight Premier League away games, going winless in their last five (D3 L2). Burnley haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last ten top-flight away games either. So they are not the strongest travellers around. Both teams have scored in all but one Burnley’s last seven away fixtures.
Even though the result didn’t go their way last weekend, at least Villa hit the back of the net twice. They have held themselves together at home and this has to represent a chance for them to get three points. Burnley are vulnerable on the road. Home win.

The Clarets are still seeking their second win of the season after rescuing a point out at Brighton last weekend. Will they sink Norwich at Turf Moor? The Canaries were singing a fine-tune last weekend as they pulled off the shock of the season so far. That was a 3-2 success over reigning champions Manchester City. Read our Burnley v Norwich betting tips for more.
Burnley even money
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 19th, 2019 at 1:12 p.m.)
There hasn’t been anything wrong with the play of Burnley this season. They have just been unable to turn good performances into wins. Last weekend they grabbed a late point with a last-minute goal from Jeff Hendrick in the final minute of their game at Brighton. Their one success happened on the opening weekend against Southampton, so it is a four-match winless streak that they are currently on. Burnley are D2 L2 in their last four.
They could do with three points to ease a bit of tension. Burnley’s win over Southampton did happen at home, and then in their other home fixture, they had an excusable defeat against Liverpool. This on paper should be one of the easier home games that they get this season. The Clarets have scored two-thirds of their goals this season in the second half of games. All three of their home goals have been in the second half. They have conceded the opening goal in three of their five games this season.
Norwich won the last meeting 4-1, a 2012 FA Cup 3rd round tie
This is the first league meeting since the 2010/11 Championship
Burnley are unbeaten in four league matches against Norwich (W2 D2)
Both teams have scored in each of the last four meetings
Norwich are unlikely to get three points in such stunning fashion as they did last weekend. They were given no hope by the bookmakers as they played host to Manchester City. But Norwich were in dreamland within the first half-hour at Carrow Road, sitting 2-0 up. There was an ominous feeling though when Sergio Aguero scored just before half time for the visitors. But Norwich came out strongly at the start of the second half, Teemu Pukki getting their third.
The Canaries held on from there. That’s six goals for the season now for Pukki. They are going to throw down some big challenges to teams at home, but can they do it on the road? They have lost their two away fixtures this season, defeats at Liverpool and West Ham. Their loss at West Ham is the only game this season in which Norwich have failed to score. Four of their five games have gone over 2.5 goals. Considering what they did last weekend, avoiding defeat this week on the road would be a great addition.
Norwich set themselves so well up at home. But doing it on the road is a different kettle of fish. Burnley will know the importance of getting a win at Turf Moor to give themselves a lift. They can do just that as well. Home win.

After a blistering start to the new campaign and an impressive new attacking style, things have gone a bit sour for Brighton. The Seagulls have taken just one point from their last three games. Will they be able to get the better of Burnley at the Amex, who are in the same boat sat level on points with them? Read our Brighton v Burnley betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 12th, 2019 at 1:16 p.m.)
Brighton have to find a way to get their results matching their performances. They came out with that thumping 3-0 away win at Watford. But then it has been just one point in their following three games. They lost their two, against Southampton and Manchester City, just before the international break. So there will be a bit of pressure on Graham Potter’s men to get themselves a win and stop the slide that they are on. The Seagulls have come up with just one goal in their last three games, which is a worry. Especially with the injury to Leandro Trossard.
They are playing a nice, wide open and attractive game though. But need results to start coming. In total, they have failed to take a win in 12 of their last 13 Premier League games now. Eight of the eleven goals that have appeared in Brighton’s games this season have been scored in the second half of games. The Seagulls have conceded the opening goal in three of their four top-flight fixtures. They have been level at half time in both home games.
Burnley took four points against Brighton last season
Both teams have scored in one of the last four meetings
Brighton are winless in seven against Burnley
Five of the last seven meetings have ended in a draw
The Clarets have pretty much followed the same pattern as Brighton have done. They started with a big win to open the season (a 3-0 success against Southampton). But it has been one point since for them. To be fair though they have been unlucky to not have picked up more points in games against Arsenal and Wolves. Burnley more than held their own in both of those fixture.
Just before the international break, they suffered a 3-0 loss against Liverpool at Turf Moor. They do have the positive of being on a seven-match undefeated streak of form against the Seagulls in all competitions. Three of Burnley’s four games this season have made it over 2.5 goals. The two goals that they have come up with away from home have both been netted in the first half of games. Without question, Ashley Barnes has been their star performer this season. He has scored four of their five goals.
We would lean towards this being a good open game. Both are trying to play some decent football this season and it could be a really good match on the south coast. Home advantage may just tip this in favour of the Seagulls. Home win.

Burnley will aim to become the first team this season to deny Liverpool points in the top flight. Even though they have only taken the one win, the performances of Burnley has been very good so far. Liverpool had a bit of a sketchy time in their one away game this season, the Reds taking a narrow win at Southampton. Read our Burnley v Liverpool betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on August 29th, 2019 at 6:35 p.m.)
The Clarets have collected four points from their opening three games of the new campaign. It could easily have been more points collected by them already though. They started with a 3-0 home win over Southampton and then easily deserved a point at Arsenal, but slipped to a 2-1 loss. Last weekend on a trip to Wolves the Clarets were well on top in the game but conceded an equalising goal in the 97th minute of play.
The positive is, is that they have been putting the ball in the back of the net. Another is that they have a striker who is well in form and that is Ashley Barnes who has scored four of their five league goals this season. In midweek an understrength Burnley suffered a shock EFL Cup loss against League One side Sunderland. Each of Burnley’s last three games against Liverpool in all competitions have gone over 2.5 goals.
Given that Liverpool haven’t looked great in defence this season, the betting options should probably lean towards both teams getting on the scoresheet in a high scoring game. Last season at Turf Moor Burnley posted a W7 D2 L10 record and lost five of their six home fixtures against top-six sides, including a 3-1 loss against Liverpool.
Liverpool won both league meeting with Burnley last season
Both teams have scored in each of the last five meetings
Burnley are W1 L4 at home against Liverpool in the EPL
Four of the last five meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
The Reds are the only team with a 100% record after just three games of the new Premier League season. They kept up their early momentum with a comfortable win over Arsenal last weekend. The 3-1 success that they took at Anfield against the Gunners, added to their wins over Norwich and Southampton. It’s a total of nine goals already from the Reds this season.
It is now a twelve match winning streak that Liverpool are on in the Premier League, scoring at least two goals in each of those. The Reds have scored at least 2 goals in their last three matches against Burnley. So a decent betting angle in this game is for the Reds to get at least two goals on the board at Turf Moor.
It is remarkable stuff from them and Mo Salah is leading the way in goals for them, having bagged three for the season. He’s the only Liverpool player with more than one goal for this campaign. In their one away game this season they didn’t play well, but still landed a 2-1 win at Southampton. There has been no clean sheet from Liverpool so far but still, they have been winning at both half time and full time in their last 12 league games.
We think that Burnley can knuckle down and frustrate Liverpool at least until half time in this one. The Reds weren’t great on the road at Southampton and Burnley are always up for a good fight. We do expect of course Liverpool to go on and get the win. Half time draw.

Wolves once again look a very tidy, tight and organised side. They picked up a 1-1 draw against Man Utd on Monday to make it back to back draws at the start of the new Premier League season for them. Burnley have shown plenty of fighting spirit and were a bit unlucky to come away from the Emirates with a loss against Arsenal on the weekend. Read our Wolves v Burnley betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on August 20th, 2019 at 8:15 a.m.)
Wolves have produced back-to-back draws at the start of the new Premier League season. Those fixtures were against Leicester and Manchester United. They have been battle-hardened already this season though because of their games in the Europa League qualifiers. So they have had plenty of game time under their belt.
Once again Wolves look as if they are a technically strong side and a team who are not going to give very much away at the back. They are going to be difficult for a lot of teams to handle, especially when they are on home soil. Wolves produced a W10 D4 L5 record at home in last season’s Premier League and they ended their season with a W3 D1 sequence at Molineux.
They do have some really classy players in their ranks with the likes of Rueben Neves (who scored a brilliant goal against Manchester United, Jota, Joao Moutinho and Raul Jimenez. They perhaps haven’t quite been at their sharpest in front of goal yet in the top flight. Last season Wolves earned a clean sheet in 37% of their home games, scoring at an average of 1.5 per fixture.
The two traded home wins in the EPL last season
Burnley are W3 D2 L1 in their last six games against Wolves
Both teams have scored in one of the last four meetings
Burnley have failed to score in four of their last five trips to Molineux
Burnley have done something that Wolves have not done this season, and that is win a Premier League game. The Clarets opened the season with a bang in producing a 3-0 home win over Southampton. They were very competitive in their first away game of the season as well, despite a 2-1 loss at Arsenal. Burnley had enough chances in that to avoid defeat easily.
It just didn’t quite happen for them on the day. But there have been some very promising early signs from the Clarets. Last season in the Premier League they had a campaign to forget and so are looking forward to this bit of new positive energy to kick things off. They do always seem to be a better team in the relative comfort and safety of Turf Moor.
Burnley only managed four away wins last season (D5 L10) and so there is a clear improvement there which could happen. Burnley managed to take just one victory in their last five away games of the previous campaign. The Clarets barely averaged over a goal per game on their top-flight troubles. But with Ashley Barnes looking a real handful up front already they will go to Molineux full of self-belief.
Wolves are a very good, technical side are a joy to watch when they are on their game. This is probably going to be a tight duel. The Clarets have played with a bit of fire in their collective belly so far. But Wolves are a tough home side to break. Wolves to win.

Both had their problems last season and at one point or another were flirting with relegation. Who will get their new season off to a positive start? A winning start will certainly ease a lot of early-season tension for whoever can claim the three points at Turf Moor. Read our Burnley v Southampton betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on August 6th, 2019 at 5:33 p.m.)
The Clarets had some major struggles last season. The big reason for that is that they couldn’t turn Turf Moor into the fortress that it needed to be. Burnley produced a W7 D2 L10 record on home soil in last season’s top flight. They crashed to four losses in their last six home fixtures as well (W2).
They were just in poor shape through to Christmas, but Sean Dyche worked his magic to get the Clarets safe. They have added Jay Rodriguez to their attacking lineup and they have keeper Nick Pope back fit. Those a both big boons for them. Have Burnley though done enough though over the summer to take a step forward?
Or is another tough season on the cards for them? Burnley averaged 1.25 goals per home game last season but they conceded at a terrible average of 1.7 per home fixture. It is that home form improvement which has to be their focus. The Clarets conceded 62% of their home goals in the second period of games last campaign. Burnley lost just one game home and away combined, against a side who finished in the bottom seven (W8 D3).
The last two meetings at Turf Moor have been drawn 1-1
Each of the last three meetings have ended in a draw
None of the last five meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Southampton are winless in five against the Clarets (D2 L3)
It hadn’t been for the arrival of Ralph Hassenhuttl, where would Southampton be? The boss was their big saviour as they clawed their way to safety. They dug out their survival thanks to their home form. It was just a poor season all through from the saints in the top flight.
They ended with a record of W4 D4 L11 from their efforts away from home. They had their goal scoring problems, averaging under a goal per away game. They were a defensive mess as well conceding at an average of 1.8 per game. But survival was all that mattered at the end of the day, now can Hassenhuttl take them forward?
The Austrian’s style is high-energy and that paid dividends for the Saints. They were certainly playing much better football under him than under they did under Mark Hughes. They look a bit more of a threat up front with Che Adams arriving from Birmingham to link up with Danny Ings. They need a positive start to settle nerves.
We are going to go with the Clarets on home soil in what will probably be a tight game. They had a poor season but handled themselves against the teams in and around them at the bottom of the table. Home win by a one-goal margin, nothing more than that.
