How the Bookies See It:
- Winner: Crystal Palace 13/10, Burnley 21/10, Draw 23/10, – Paddy Power
- Draw No Bet: Crystal Palace 4/6, Burnley 11/10 – Sky Bet
- Both Teams to Score: Yes 10/11, No 10/11 – Bet365
- Burnley have won three, drawn two and lost five of their ten Premier League matches. They defeated Liverpool by two goals to nil on Saturday 20th August, achieved another 2-0 win over Watford on Monday 26th September and beat Everton 2-1 on Saturday 22nd October. The Clarets’ most recent game was against Manchester United at Old Trafford, where they managed to hold José Mourinho’s team to a 0-0 draw. Burnley have scored eight league goals this season, giving them an average of 0.8 goals per match, and have conceded 13.
- Crystal Palace have won, drawn and lost just as many games as Burnley thus far. They achieved a 2-1 win when visiting Middlesbrough on Saturday 10th September, trounced Stoke 4-1 on Sunday 18th September and came away from Sunderland with a 3-2 victory on Saturday 24th September. Unfortunately, they haven’t won a match since then, and will come to Burnley on the back of three consecutive losses to West Ham, Leicester and Liverpool. Palace have scored 14 goals from their league matches this season, for an average of 1.4 goals per match, whilst conceding 16.
Although both teams are tied on points, Crystal Palace have scored almost twice as many goals as Burnley this season, and that could be enough to give them the edge they need to secure a win this Saturday. On the less positive side, Palace don’t have the best recent form, and Burnley will have the home advantage, so the hosts could well manage to hold the visitors to a draw.
The goal stats suggest that this match is most likely to result in a 1-1 or 1-2 score line, so we will side with the goal superiority of the visitors whilst eliminating the danger of a draw by suggesting a bet on Crystal Palace in the Draw No Bet market at Sky Bet.
