Bitesize Prediction: Burnley vs West Brom – 20/01/23

Competition: Championship

Market: Over 1.5 goals

Odds: 4/11 @ 888sport

Two sides who are enjoying their own extended purple patches, Burnley will welcome West Brom to Turf Moor on Friday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Burnley might have lost their Championship status last season, the Clarets are cruising their way towards an immediate Premier League return. Only continuing on what has been a remarkable run of form under new boss Vincent Kompany, the Lancashire-based outfit hold a five-point buffer over the chasing pack. Gaining a string of plaudits from across England’s second-tier on either side of the World Cup break, the former Manchester City skipper has seen his side win 13 of their previous 15 matchups across all formats. With that run highlighted by an action-packed 4-2 win against Bournemouth on FA Cup duties on January 7th, it should also be highlighted that Kompany’s high-flying squad have not suffered a single defeat at Turf Moor so far this season.

As for the visitors, while West Brom might have opened the Championship campaign in the midst of a public nightmare, the Baggies have really found a stellar rise under new boss Carlos Corberan. Extending on their FA Cup adventure at the second attempt earlier in the week as they cruised their way to a 4-0 romp at home against Chesterfield, the former Huddersfield boss has seen his side skyrocket their way up the second-tier standings. Shocking many and finding a route into the play-off places, Friday’s guests have lost just one of their last nine domestic matchups across all formats – a run that stems back to December 21st. Likewise, along with mounting a stellar comeback away at Luton last weekend as they claimed an action-packed 3-2 victory on the road, neutrals will be hoping for another enjoyable affair here.

Bet: Over 1.5 goals at Burnley vs West Brom 4/11 for Friday’s Championship battle @ 888sport
