This is a clash between two sides looking to snap themselves out of slumps. Huddersfield are currently on a three-match losing streak in the league and start the weekend in the drop zone, with the poorest offensive record in the top flight. Newcastle have managed one point from the last nine available and would see the Terriers pull level with them if they lose. Read our Huddersfield v Newcastle betting tips for more.

The Terriers went to Arsenal last weekend and suffered a 1-0 loss after putting in a decent showing against an in-form team. That still was their third defeat on the bounce in the top flight and they are back in trouble once again. It is a slump after looking as if they had just turned the corner having taken seven points of nine. Their home form in the top flight reads W1 D2 L5 so far. There was a loss for them in their last home game, a 2-1 reverse against Brighton. The Terriers have struggled for goals, having netted just three at home so far, conceding 10.
They have failed to score in 62% of home games. There has been a home clean sheet for them in 25% of fixtures though so that is some kind of positive. Just 25% of games at the John Smith’s have ended over 2.5 goals this season. Another positive for Huddersfield it that they have at least scored in each of their last three at home in the league. But less positive is the fact that the Terriers have been trailing at half-time in four of their eight home fixtures
There were 1-0 home wins for each last season in the EPL
The season before in the Championship, they traded away wins
The home team has scored exactly one goal in each of the last four meetings
The Magpies lost 2-1 at home against Wolves in their last fixture and they have just hit a sticky patch with two losses in their last three games (D1). Away from St James’ Park this season it hasn’t been good from Newcastle as they have put up numbers of W1 D4 L2 so far. Newcastle though are unbeaten in their last three away games (W1 D2). In their run of away games, this term Newcastle have come up with just the six goals, conceding seven. 43% of their away games have ended over 2.5 goals.
The Magpies have earned a clean sheet in 43% of their away games so that has been a pretty decent defensive effort from them. They haven’t been losing at half time in any of their away games this season either. Five of their seven away games have been level at the end of the first half so that’s a strong trend to have a look at. The Magpies haven’t hit a second-half goal on their travels yet his season and there has been no clean sheet in any of their last five league outing for them. In just one of their away games, this season have Newcastle scored the opening goal of a game. Only Southampton and Huddersfield have scored fewer away goals than Newcastle have.
Our prediction is going to be the home win and a much-needed one for the Terriers. They have scored in their last three home games while Newcastle have really struggled in away games against the bottom sides this season.

The Terriers will head to North London on the weekend looking for more points towards their survival this season. This isn’t going to be an easy road trip for them of course. Arsenal have been in impressive home form this season, including their big North London derby victory over rivals Tottenham last time out at the Emirates. Read our Arsenal v Huddersfield betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 4th, 2018 at 7:41 p.m.)
The Gunners twice lost a lead at Old Trafford in midweek to play out a 2-2 draw against Manchester United. The point in the game though extended their fantastic unbeaten streak of league form out to thirteen games. At the Emirates this season in the top flight the Gunners have posted a W5 D2 L1 record. This will actually be their first home game this season playing against a side who are currently sitting in the Premier League bottom seven. Arsenal have averaged exactly two goals per home game this season but despite that only 38% of fixtures at the Emirates though have gone over 2.5 goals.
Arsenal have scored in each of their last 14 league games and they are without a clean sheet in any of their last eight. They haven’t banked a clean sheet in any of their last four on home soil in the Premier League. Surprisingly still, the Gunners haven’t been leading at half time at home this season (D5 L3). 81% of Arsenal’s home goals this season have been scored in the second half of games. The Gunners have scored at least two goals in each of their last three league games home and away combined. Alexandre Lacazette has scored in back to back games.
The Gunners took back to back wins over Huddersfield last season
The two wins were both with a clean sheet
Last season’s meetings are the only previous EPL clashes
Arsenal are on a three-match winning streak in all competitions against the Terriers
Huddersfield suffered a 2-1 reverse out at Bournemouth in midweek and that was their second 2-1 default on the bounce. The overall away form of the Terriers this season is W1 D2 L4 and they could have a tough time of things in this one. They have so far taken only one point from their four road games against current top-half of the table sides. The Terriers have netted 7 away goals, conceding 16. 57% of their road games have gone over 2.5 goals. Huddersfield have managed to get just one away clean sheet on the board this season.
71% of the away goals that Huddersfield have scored this season have come up in the first half of matches. They are on a scoring streak of having netted in each of their last five games (home and away combined). The Terriers have been losing at half time in four of their seven away games this season. In total, this season in the Premier League, Huddersfield have managed only the ten goals in total. No side has scored fewer than that. Also, there are only four teams currently in the top flight who have shipped more goals than Huddersfield have done this season.
Arsenal will be a banker for many punters this weekend as they take on Huddersfield who have not been without their struggles this term. Arsenal have been so good going forward that they can finish this one of early. Arsenal to win to nil.

Things are not going great for the Cherries as they have lost four in a row. They were knocked off at Man City on the weekend and need to desperately find a way to snap this slump. Will they take the chance to make amends on home soil as they welcome Huddersfield who still trying to claw their way away from the drop zone? Read our Bournemouth v Huddersfield betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 2nd, 2018 at 12:47 p.m.)
Bournemouth paid a trip to Man City on the weekend and end up 3-1 losers. That was their fourth straight Premier League defeat. It was also the fourth game in a row in which they had conceded at least two goals. The Cherries have found the back of the net in each of their last five though so both teams to score is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds take on December 2nd, 2018 at 12:07 pm). At home this season in the top flight Bournemouth are W3 D2 L2. They have suffered back to back 2-1 losses at the Vitality though against Man Utd and Arsenal.
But in their four games at home against sides 8th or lower currently, Bournemouth are W3 D1. They have fired off twelve goals in their seven home games so far and 71% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. Also, both teams have scored in 71% of Bournemouth’s home games this season. Over 2.5 goals is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds take on December 2nd, 2018 at 12:07 pm). The Cherries have not been losing at half time at home this season (W3 D3) and 78% of the goals they have conceded at home have been in the second half of matches. So they are a decent option not to be losing at the break.
The Cherries won 4-0 at home against Huddersfield last season
Bournemouth are W2 D1 L1 in their last four against the Terriers
Bournemouth’s last two wins against them have been 4-0 scorelines
Five of the last six meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Both teams have scored in four of the last six
Huddersfield had their positive momentum snapped on the weekend as they lost 2-1 at home against Brighton. They had gone three unbeaten before that. Still, Huddersfield have earned more points in their last four games than they did in their opening ten games this season. Their form out on the road reads W1 D2 L3 and they are on a four-match scoring streak in the league (W2 D1 L1). In total across their six away games, they have averaged a goal per game. Defensively though the Terriers have conceded at over two goals per away game on average. In the correct score market a Bournemouth 2-1 is 8/1 odds* (betting odds take on December 2nd, 2018 at 12:07 pm)
The only clean sheet for Huddersfield this season came in a 2-0 win out at Wolves in their last road game. Of the six goals that they have come up with a way home, four of them have been produced in the first half of matches. No team has scored fewer goals in the top flight this season than Huddersfield. Only three sides currently have fewer away points than Huddersfield have. A Bournemouth half time win is at 13/10 odds* (betting odds take on December 2nd, 2018 at 12:07 pm). That is worth a look as Huddersfield have been losing at half time in half of their road games this term.
Huddersfield have done much better lately but they still have a lot of improving to do. The Cherries have to break out of their slump soon and their positive approach could pay dividends in this one. Bournemouth to win & both teams to score.
2nd December 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Terriers did their survival hopes the power of good last weekend in picking up three points away at Wolves. That is two wins in their last three now and are starting to get a bit of momentum together. More points at home on the weekend would lift them further from trouble. Brighton are five points ahead of the Terriers but they haven’t won in three. Read our Huddersfield v Brighton betting tips for more.
(Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 27th, 2018 at 4:55 p.m.)
There was a big three points for Huddersfield last weekend as they picked up a 2-0 away win at Wolves. That leaves them on a W2 D4 L7 record overall this season home and away in the top flight. The home portion of that form reads W1 D2 L4. They have not been beaten in their last three league outings in a W2 D1 record so it has been a big upturn in form for them. In their last game at the John Smiths, they earned a 1-0 home win over Fulham.
That was just their second home clean sheet this season in the Premier League. It was also just their second home goal of the season. Their two home goals have both been produced in their last two home fixtures. Both of those home goals have been recorded in the first half of games as well. A Huddersfield 1-0 correct score is at 11/2 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 5:27 pm).
They have conceded eight home goals this season, but six of those were against current top-four sides. Of those goals, they have conceded at home three-quarters of them have come in the first half of matches. Each of their last six at the John Smiths have gone under 2.5 goals and under 2.5 goals is at 1/2 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 5:27 pm). The Terriers have been behind at halftime in all but two of their home games this season.
The Terriers picked up a 1-1 draw in last season’s corresponding fixture
The Terriers are W2 D1 in their last three games against Brighton
Both teams have scored in four of the last six meetings
Huddersfield have won their last two home games against Brighton
The Seagulls are winless in their last five visits to Huddersfield (D3 L2)
Brighton conceded a late penalty to settle for a 1-1 draw at home against Leicester on the weekend. That has been their only point in their last three league games now. That was after their great run of three straight 1-0 wins in the league and it leaves them with no clean sheet in three now. Away from home in this top-flight campaign, Brighton are W1 D1 L5 on their travels this season. They have suffered back to back away games, but have still scored in each of their last three away from the Amex. Both teams to score is at 11/10 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 5:27 pm)
Brighton are currently on a six-match scoring streak in the league. The Seagulls have scored just the five away goals this season, conceding twelve along the way. Their last two away games have gone over 2.5 goals but that’s been largely down to defensive failures as they have conceded at least two goals in their last two away games. Only Cardiff and Fulham have earned fewer away points than Brighton have done this season. Four times away from home this season Brighton have been losing 1-0 at halftime. A Huddersfield 1-0 halftime correct score is at 10/3 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 5:27 pm).
Huddersfield have a bit of wind in their sails and will have a chance to push on a little further here. Brighton have been nothing special away from home this season and the Terriers can make the most of home advantage. Home win.
28th November 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Terriers fell to the bottom of the table on Saturday as Fulham pulled out a victory to move above them. So there will be a bit of extra pressure on them in this one as they head out to face Wolves. Wolves were on a three-match losing streak before earning a great point out at Arsenal last time out. Read our Wolves v Huddersfield betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 24th, 2018 at 9:15 p.m.)
A good point out at Arsenal last time out should have given Wolves a good lift. That snapped a three-match losing streak that they were on in the league. Wolves are W2 D2 L2 at Molineux this season. They have lost their last two on home soil, shipping at least two goals in both of those defeats. Those defeats were against Watford and Spurs. There has been no home win from Wolves against anyone currently in the top half of the table. But they have won their two at home against sides in the bottom-half, beating Burnley and Southampton with a clean sheet. Wolves to win to nil is 21/20 odds* (betting odds taken on November 24th, 2018 at 7:09 pm)
Just 33% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals and it is hard to see the goals flying around in this one. 88% of the goals that Wolves have scored at home have come after the halftime break. They have been level at 0-0 in three of their six home fixtures in the Premier League. With that in mind, the halftime draw is at 6/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 24th, 2018 at 7:09 pm) and worth looking at in Wolves v Huddersfield betting tips.
The last time they were together was in the 2916/17 Championship
Each of the three meetings have ended in a 1-0 win for Huddersfield
Wolves have lost four of their last five home games against the Terriers (W1)
Both teams have NOT score in any of the last four meetings
Huddersfield have won 10 of their last 12 against Wolves in all competitions
Huddersfield also got a 1-1 draw in their last league outing. Theirs was at home against West Ham. After earning just three points (D3) from their previous ten league fixtures, Huddersfield now have taken four in their last two. So that’s been quite the turnaround when you put it into context. They haven’t won on their travels yet this term though with a W0 D2 L3 record away from home having been recorded. In those away games, Huddersfield have scored just four times.
Huddersfield have conceded an average of 2.8 goals away from home this season. In the correct score market a Wolves 1-0 option is at 4/1 odds* (betting odds taken on November 24th, 2018 at 7:09 pm). They have Zanka missing at the back for this one as he is out through suspension. There have been under 2.5 goals in five of Huddersfield’s last six games. Of those four away goals which they have produced this season, all but one of them have been in the first half of matches.
There has to be a golden opportunity for Wolves to get back to winning ways in this fixture. They have shown the defensive strengths to keep out the low-scoring Terriers. Home win.
24th November 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Can Huddersfield now build on the three points that they got against Fulham last weekend? That was their first success of the campaign, but they are still in big trouble inside the bottom three. Can the Terriers get some momentum going? West Ham put four goals past Burnley last weekend to give themselves a lift after some indifferent form of their own. Read our Huddersfield v West Ham betting tips for more.
West Ham 6/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 5th, 2018 at 8:54 p.m.)
The wait is over for Huddersfield. They got their first win of the season with a 1-0 home success over Fulham last weekend to give themselves a massive boost. That leaves them with a W1 D1 L4 record at the John Smiths this season. The winner against Fulham was their first home goal of the season, but they didn’t even score that, as it was marked as an own goal from Fulham’s Timothy Fosu-Mensah. Under 2.5 goals is at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken on November 7th, 2018 at 7:32 pm). There is a strong enough reason to back that as only 33% of their home games have managed to get above 1.5 goals let alone 2.5 goals. Huddersfield have conceded seven goals in their six home games.
Actually, there have been under 2.5 goals scored in 10 of Huddersfield’s last 11 home games in the English top flight. In all of the league fixtures at the John Smiths this season, there has been just the one second-half goal. Taking that into consideration then the half draw suddenly looks like a great betting tip for the Huddersfield v West Ham fixture. The Terriers have been losing at halftime in four of their six home games. The only injury concerns that they have going into the fixture are Danny Williams and Erik Durm. Can the Terriers build on their first success of the season?
West Ham won both league meetings with the Terriers last season
The Hammers are on a three-match winning streak against Huddersfield
Last season’s meetings were the first since 1997
West Ham got themselves a much-needed win last weekend as they put four goals past Burnley in a 4-2 home win. The Hammers were on a three-match winless streak of form prior to that. Out on the road, they have taken only a W1 D1 L3 record so far so they have certainly had their troubles away from home. They have shipped at an average of exactly one goal per game on their travels. Mark Noble will be serving out the final game in his ban for his red card against Leicester. The Irons have a fair chunk of players on the injury list as well.
West Ham have failed to hit the back of the net in 40% of their away games while they are on the hunt for their first away clean sheet. A West Ham to win to nil option is at 5/2 odds* (betting odds taken on November 7th, 2018 at 7:32 pm) considering Huddserfild’s goalscoring woes at home. 80% of the goals that West Ham have scored on the road have been in the first half of matches. Defensively they have conceded at an average of two goals per game against this season in their away games. Felipe Anderson scored a brace last weekend and he is at 11/4 odds in the anytime goalscorer market for this one* (betting odds taken on November 7th, 2018 at 7:32 pm).
West Ham are a bit of value here to get the away win on the board. They aren’t particularly consistent or anything but you just have to take the context of Huddersfield’s form over the course of the season into consideration, not just their last game.
9th November 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
There is going to be a massively important three points up for grabs in this duel between two sides stuck in the Premier League drop zone. Huddersfield are rock bottom still searching for their first win of the campaign. Fulham have been punished badly at the back all season long and a loss against the Terriers could be the final straw for boss Slavisa Jokanovic. Read our Huddersfield v Fulham betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 31st, 2018 at 10:39 p.m.)
There was another defeat for Huddersfield last weekend in the Premier League as they suffered a 3-0 loss at Watford. That means they have taken back to back league defeats on board and have collected just the one point from their last six games. Not too surprisingly they are bottom of the pile having collected just three points all season and they are still looking for that elusive first win of the campaign. Their home form is W1 L4 for the season and they have yet to manage to get a single home goal on the board. Both teams not to score is at 21/20* (betting odds taken on November 2nd, 2018 at 2:54 pm)
The Terriers have only produced four goals in ten games all season and have netted just once in their last four fixtures. Four of their five home games this season have gone under 2.5 goals so there is a trend there. Even Though they are taking on side who have the worst defensive in the league, under 2.5 goals is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 2nd, 2018 at 2:54 pm) and still appeals. If the Terriers could get that first win of the season it would move them off the bottom and one point ahead of Fulham. The Terriers have not earned a clean sheet in any of their last seven games. They have been trailing at half time in 70% of their matches and have also been losing at both half time and full time in 6 of their last 7 home matches
The Terriers and Fulham haven’t met since the 2016/17 Championship season
During that season, Fulham beat Huddersfield twice
Huddersfield have failed to win any of their last eleven games against Fulham
Both teams have scored in five of the last seven meetings
Fulham suffered a 3-0 loss at home against Bournemouth last weekend as once again their defence collapsed. The Cottagers have slipped into the drop zone and into a heap of trouble with a four-match losing streak going. They did have an extra game in midweek as they strangely sent out a full-strength side to face Manchester City in the EFL Cup. Fulham still lost 2-0 in the tie. Getting back to focus on the league only, Fulham have shipped at least three goals in each of their last four games. There have been over 2.5 goals netted in all but one of Fulham’s last nine Premier League fixtures.
Fulham have conceded a total of 28 goals in 10 games so far for that average of 2.8 goals per game against them. They have put together a three-match losing streak away from Craven Cottage. Their overall away form has seen them take one point from five games. As a positive though Cottagers though have averaged a goal per game away from home. A Fulham 1-0 correct score option is at 8/1 odds* (betting odds taken on November 2nd, 2018 at 2:54 pm). Three of their five away goals have come in the first half of matches, while ten of the fifteen away goals conceded by them have come in the second half of their road fixtures. There’s a high probability that boss Slavisa Jokanovic will be sacked if they lose on the weekend.
Such an important game for both of these and even though Fulham crashed badly at Cardiff recently, we are backing them to get the win against a fairly toothless Huddersfield side. This could go against the grain of Fulham’s results this season and end under 2.5 goals too.
3rd November 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Watford have the chance to start building a bit of new momentum after snapping a winless streak of form with a victory over Wolves last weekend. That was a big boost for them and now they play host to the struggling Huddersfield. The Terriers are second from bottom and still without a win for the season. Read our Watford v Huddersfield betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 25th, 2018 at 4:36 p.m.)
Last weekend Watford eased some pressure off their shoulders with a good win at Molineux against Wolves. That snapped a D1 L3 run of form that they were on. At Vicarage Road this season in the top flight, Watford are W3 L2 and they have suffered a defeat in their last two on home soil. Their last home game ended in a nightmare 4-0 defeat at the hands of Bournemouth. In each of the three wins they have earned at home this season, they have scored exactly two goals. A Watford 2-0 correct score option is a 7/1 odds* (Betting odds taken on October 25th, 2018 at 4:39 pm).
There has been over 2.5 goals in 80% of their league games at home this season, and the Hornets don’t have a clean sheet in any of their last four. Each of the last four at Vicarage Road have gone over the goal line. Under 2.5 goals though looks the sensible betting tip for Watford v Huddersfield at 8/11 odds* (Betting odds taken on October 25th, 2018 at 4:39 pm) because the visiting Terriers are not exactly a great threat.
With Watford having scored only one first-half home goal this season they have been ahead at the half time break in just one of their four home fixtures this season. They have shipped 67% of their home goals in the first half of games. It is interesting to have a look at their form against sides in the bottom half of the table and the Hornets are W3 D1 in their four games so far against suddenly currently 11th or lower.
Huddersfield beat Watford twice last season in the league
The Terriers netted five goals and shipped just the one in those games
Watford have lost their last three against the Terriers
Huddersfield have won two of their last three trips to Vicarage Road
Five of the last six meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Both teams have scored in all but one of the last six meetings
It has been a struggle all the way for Huddersfield. They have failed to get a win on the board so far and have collected just the three points along the way. They did actually change their formation a bit last weekend and put in a good spirited effort against Liverpool but still lost in a 1-0 defeat. A Watford to win to nil option is at 13/8 odds* (Betting odds taken on October 25th, 2018 at 4:39 pm). In their four away games, the Terriers have conceded eleven goals and have scored the four themselves.
Their four away goals have been evenly spread at one in each of their four road games. Three of those four goals Huddersfield have scored in the first half of away games. In total home and away they have come up with just the one goal in their last three games and both teams not to score is at 7/10 odds* (Betting odds taken on October 25th, 2018 at 4:39 pm). Reaching back to last season the Terriers are winless in 13 league games now. They have been trailing at half time in 67% of all their games this season.
Huddersfield just are not any kind of threat at the moment and with Watford having a bit of confidence behind them after a positive last weekend, we are going to roll with the home win and to nil as well.
26th October 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Terriers get a really tough return to league action after the international break. They are still looking for their first win of the season and have to take on Liverpool. Will the rest have done the Reds good having drawn their last two before the break? Questions were arising about their star players not hitting their potential this season. Read our Huddersfield v Liverpool betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 15th, 2018 at 7:16 p.m.)
The Terriers are still on the hunt for their first win of the season and it would be a stunning upset if they were to get it in this one. They have three points from three drawn matches so far only, one of them out at Burnley before the international break.
Their home form has seen them collect only the one point this season and punters are going to have a hard time finding positive to back them. Their last home game saw them suffer a 2-0 loss against Tottenham.
So that is a good indicator and a Liverpool 2-0 correct score option is at 5/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm). Huddersfield have yet to come up with a home goal this season. So the option on both teams not to score has to have some value.
With the season settling down you can see the struggles that the Terriers are having. In total this season Huddersfield have produced only the four goals which leaves them as the joint lowest scorers alongside bottom club Cardiff heading back into the weekend.
Liverpool will be looking to get themselves up and running in winning ways again as they make the trip to Huddersfield. The Reds are W3 D1 on the road and their winning streak was snapped in a 1-1 tie at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea in their last road game. That was also the first occasion this season that they had failed to score two goals in an away game.
Liverpool to win to nil is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm) and is a popular option for Huddersfield v Liverpool betting tips. Their powerful front three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah haven’t been as strong as they were last season.
Salah has just one goal in Liverpool’s last five league games now and has been extremely wasteful compared to his pinpoint accuracy last term. The Reds are facing a poor defence here and Salah is the 8/11 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market, but has just one away goal all season* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm).
Liverpool have conceded just the three away goals all season, two of them happening in the second half of matches. Liverpool have been ahead at half time in three of their four road games. A Liverpool/Liverpool half-time/ full-time bet is at 5/6 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm).
It was all a bit too easy for Liverpool last season in the Premier League meetings with Huddersfield. The Reds produced a 3-0 win in both of their games against the Terriers. Those were the first league meetings since the 1971/72 old division one season.
It looks likely that the best Huddersfield could look for would be a point. Liverpool struggled in tougher fixtures before the break but otherwise have handled themselves well. We will settle on the away win & under 2.5 goals as Liverpool haven’t quite been at their fluent best.
18th October 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Clarets have eased a lot of pressure of themselves with back to back wins in the top flight. So they are settling down it would seem after a tricky start. They will be expecting to put more points on the board as they welcome the Terriers to Turf Moor on the weekend. Huddersfield are rooted to the foot of the table with just the two points. Read our Burnley v Huddersfield betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 2nd, 2018 at 8:23 p.m.)
The Clarets have picked up the pace with back to back wins in the Premier League now having taken down Bournemouth and Cardiff. So they are over their hump of four straight losses and there is a good chance of more points in this one. Because Huddersfield are not likely to raise too much of a threat in this one then under 2.5 goals looks to be the way to go which is at 8/15 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 1:37 pm). Burnley’s home form is W1 L2 so far this season.
They thumped Bournemouth 4-0 in their last home game but we are going to roll with the far more conservative option of a Burnley 1-0 correct score option at 11/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 1:37 pm). The Clarets have scored five goals and have conceded exactly five goals at home this season. They are also five points worse off than they were at this stage of last season’s campaign. But there have been more positives from them lately and they will expect to push on. They would probably expect to be in line for their third clean sheet of the season too.
When you are down you are down and the Terriers certainly are at the moment. They have collected just the two points this season and are sat at the foot of the table because of goal difference. They have conceded sixteen goals this season so are massively vulnerable. Going forward they have managed to produce just the three goals all season and both teams not to score is at 7/10 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 1:37 pm). The Terriers go into the weekend action on a three-match losing streak.
Away from home, they have a D1 L2 record for the season and they have scored exactly one goal in each of those three road games. Again, that is all the goals that they have come up with this season. All three of those goals all appeared in the first half of matches as well which adds up to two of the three away games being level at 1-1 at halftime. The halftime draw for the game is at 20/21 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 1:37 pm). Huddersfield have actually conceded fewer shots per game on average than Burnley have done this season, but they are five goals worse off in goals against than the Clarets.
Last season’s meetings in the Premier League were non-events really as both games ended in a 0-0 draw. It means that the Clarets are undefeated in their last five games against the Terriers now with a W3 D2 record on the board. Both teams have scored in just four of the last eleven meetings.
We have to stick with Burnley to come up with the goods in this one. They have started to produce and they should be able to expose the Terriers who are just badly out of shape at the moment. Home win.
