Following their 2-0 win over Doncaster on Tuesday night, Burnley host league leaders in the early kick-off on Saturday, knowing that a win by two goals or two against the Foxes would see Sean Dyche’s men go top of the table for the first time since December.

Leading odds comparison site Oddschecker.com highlights that the Clarets are best priced at 2/1 with BetVictor for the win.

Leicester, who have won six of their last 10 games in the league, are on offer at 8/5 with Ladbrokes, whilst the draw is available at 12/5 with William Hill.

With Danny Ings out injured, Sam Vokes led the line on Tuesday night against Doncaster. Burnley’s number 9 opened the scoring for the fifth time this season.

If you fancy Vokes to break the deadlock once again this weekend, he is best priced at 11/2 with Paddy Power to do so.

Vokes has now scored an impressive 21 goals this season, and is available at a tempting 13/8 with the same bookmaker to score anytime on Saturday.

Interestingly, Burnley have scored two or more goals in their last five home games at Turf More.

If you fancy a repeat of this, Burnley are best priced at 13/8 with Coral to score two or more goals.

When these two met earlier at Turf Moor earlier in the season, the Clarets took a share of the spoils in a 1-1 draw. A repeat of this score line on Saturday is on offer at 13/2 with Ladbrokes.

Five of Burnley’s last seven games have all resulted in over 2.5 goals. If punters fancy that becoming six from eight, over 2.5 goals on Saturday is an option best priced at 8/13 with Coral.

Burnley have closed the gap between themselves and Leicester to just three points and Oddschecker.com can reveal that Sean Dyche’s men are now best priced at 5/1 with BetVictor to be crowned champions of the Championship, the shortest they’ve been all season.

Coincidently, you could have got a Burnley at 83/1 to win the Championship at the start of the season.

Furthermore, the Clarets, who have a 10 point lead over third placed QPR, are best priced to make a return to the top flight this season.
