Burnley v Crystal Palace betting tips: Vital points on the line at Turf Moor
Preview and odds for Saturday’s Premier League clash
Both the Clarets and Eagles look to carry on with some smart form they took into the international break as we look at the odds to find some Burnley v Crystal Palace betting tips.
Burnley are fourth favourites in the Premier League relegation odds and will be desperate to escape the drop zone, while Crystal Palace have the chance to break into the top half as Patrick Vieira has made a fine start to Premier League management.
Saturday’s match, which takes place at Turf Moor, kicks off at 3pm.
Burnley v Crystal Palace match odds
Burnley doubled their points tally for the season in their two Premier League games before the pause and manager Sean Dyche will be eager to keep the momentum going as they attempt to avoid relegation.
A first victory of the season against Brentford in their last home game brought to an end a winless Premier League run at Turf Moor that dates back to January and they followed that up with a well-earned point away to Chelsea last time.
Meanwhile the visitors are looking to extend a six-game unbeaten run that has carried them to 11th in the table, while they are also attempting to notch up a third straight victory.
They have beaten both Manchester City and Wolves in recent weeks, keeping a clean sheet in both contests.
Crystal Palace have won by a scoreline of 2-0 the last twice and the same result is 11/1.
Burnley v Crystal Palace head-to-head
These two have met 12 times in the Premier League and it is Burnley who have dominated this fixture most recently, winning the last three contests.
All three of those victories came to nil and the same outcome is a 7/2 chance here, while only one of the sides has found the scoresheet in eight of the last nine head-to-head contests, which brings ‘no’ in the both teams to score market into calculations at 17/20.
A 3-0 victory for Burnley at Selhurst Park last time is the only time there has been more than two goals in their last four encounters and under 2.5 is 8/13, while Burnley 1-0 is 7/1 to land for a third time in two years.
Burnley v Crystal Palace key battles
Burnley will be buoyed by their recent results, but they can’t take any liberties with the high-flying Eagles in town.
Dyche will have to conjure up a plan to stop in-form Palace pair Wilfried Zaha and Conor Gallagher scoring for the third consecutive game.
Both have been the driving force behind Palace’s fine results this term with the performances of Gallagher being rewarded with a first England cap recently.
