Burnley 21/20 to beat Bournemouth in Saturday’s Premier League contest

Competition: Premier League

Market: Burnley win

Odds: 21/20 @ Bet 365

Knowing that three points on Saturday could propel them into the European race, Burnley will host relegation scrappers Bournemouth at Turf Moor this weekend.

Starting with the hosts, picking up a 2-1 win away at St. Mary’s last weekend and with only their goal difference keeping them outside the top half of the table, Burnley are enjoying quite the month. Snatching back-to-back victories against Leicester and a famous 2-0 win at Old Trafford, the mood around Turf Moor is certainly on the rise. Now sat within touching distance of joining the top-six race, Sean Dyche’s men should also be boosted by their stunning record against Saturday’s guests. When the two sides faced off earlier in the season, the Clarets landed a 1-0 win on the road and they have now recorded victories in their last three consecutive matchups against the Cherries.

As for the visitors, throwing away a one-goal lead and watching Sheffield United snatch a 2-1 win at Bramall Lane, Bournemouth have continued to show some glaring issues on the road. Holding just a two-point buffer from slipping back into the bottom-three, Eddie Howe’s men have lost their last four matches away from the South Coast, including a woeful 4-0 defeat away at West Ham on New Year’s Day. Remarkably losing eight of their last 10 Premier League appearances on the road, the one-time Burnely boss has seen his side land just a sole victory away from the Vitality since the 20th of September. Given Bournemouth’s continued struggles on their travels, coupled with Burnley’s stellar record against the Cherries, we’re backing a home victory this weekend.
