Burnley odds on favourites ahead of Bournemouth clash

There is no doubting the fact that Burnley are the inform team in the country at the moment.

Despite being held to a draw away to Millwall last time out, the club’s recent run of eight wins out of nine in the league is unmatched.

Following that hard fought 2-2 draw away to Millwall, a notoriously hard place to go, this weekend sees Sean Dyche’s men host Bournemouth who come into the game off the back of just one win in their last seven games. Leading odds comparison site Oddschecker.com can reveal that the Clarets are odds on favourites for the game, on offer at 3/4 with BetVictor. The Cherries are best priced at 17/4 with the same bookmaker for the away win, whilst the draw is available at 14/5 with bet365.

Sam Vokes started the comeback at the Den on Saturday and has now scored nine league goals this season. If you fancy him to break the deadlock on Saturday, he is on offer at 9/2 with Sky Bet to do so, second favourite behind Danny Ings. Ings has scored 13 goals in all competitions so far this season, and who’d back against him scoring anytime on Saturday? He is best priced at 6/5 with Betfred to find the net within the 90 minutes this weekend.

Both of Burnley’s front men are amongst the favourites to become the league’s top goal scorer this season. Ings is best priced at 11/1 with Coral, whilst Vokes is on offer at 16/1 with bet365.

The last time these two met was in 2005 when Burnley walked away 2-0 winners in the FA Cup. If you like the look of a repeat of this score line, it is available at 17/2 with Coral.

Bournemouth haven’t had trouble finding the net in recent weeks as both teams have scored in six of their last seven games. If punters fancy that becoming seven in eight, both teams to score is best priced at 4/5 with BetVictor.

Burnley currently sit at the top of the Championship, and their odds of winning the league continue to shorten. Having been 9/1 just two weeks ago, they are not as short as 7/1 with Coral to be crowned champions. They are also third favourites to be promoted back to the top flight, on offer at 9/4 with BetVictor behind Leicester and QPR.
