Burnley clear favourites to beat Charlton

BURNLEY are clear favourites to beat Charlton this weekend, at a price of 11/10 with a number of bookies, and leading online betting comparison site, Oddschecker.com can reveal that a whopping 88% of punters betting on the game have backed the Clarets for a home win.

This fixture 30 years ago saw Burnley romp home 7-1 and (perhaps overly) optimistic fans, would be keen to know a £1 bet will win you £500 with Paddy Power if Burnley put on another 7-1 thrashing.

A more realistic bet would be to continue to back Burnley’s talisman, Charlie Austin. A scorecast with Austin to score the first goal and Burnley to win 2-1 looks good value at 25/1 with BetVictor. Last time these two met at Turf Moor the game finished 2-1 and BetFred have a best price of 8/1 for a repeat result.

Sam Vokes scored his first goal last weekend, and Burnley fans will hope that has kicked started his season, he’s at 15/2 with Bet365 to score the last goal of the game.
