Burnley odds on favourites ahead of Barnsley clash


A fourth draw in five games has seen Burnley drop outside of the automatic promotion places, two points behind league leaders Leicester.

Leading odds comparison site Oddschecker.com can reveal that following Burnley’s indifferent recent form, their odds of being crowned champions have drifted from 8/1 last week to 12/1, best priced with Stan James. They are still third favourites to win the league and are also amongst the favourites for promotion. Sean Dyche’s men are now on offer at 11/4 for promotion with Sky Bet, having been as short as 2/1 just last week.

The Clarets host bottom of the table Barnsley today in a bid to get back to winning ways. Oddschecker.com can confirm that Burnley are odds-on at 8/13 with Paddy Power for the home win. Barnsley, who come into the game off an impressive win against Brighton, are on offer at 11/2 with Sky Bet, whilst the draw is best priced at 16/5 with BetVictor.

Danny Ings scored again last weekend, taking his championship goal tally to 11 this season and if punters are looking for goals, look no further than Burnley’s number 10. He is on offer at 4/1 with Betfred to open the scoring, and available at 11/10 to score anytime with bet365. If you like the look of Ings to score anytime and Burnley to take all three points, it’s a double best priced at 7/4 with Paddy Power.

Both teams have scored in four of the Claret’s last five fixtures, and if you like the look of that becoming five from six, both teams to find the net on Saturday is an option on offer at 5/6 with BetVictor.

Barnsley have lost seven of their nine away games this season, failing to score in four of them. If you fancy Tom Heaton and co to keep a clean sheet this weekend, they are available at 8/5 with Paddy Power to do so, and are on offer at 21/10 with the same bookmaker to win to nil.

In a look ahead to Friday’s World Cup draw, England are a best priced 25/1 to win it, having been priced up at 14/1 after the 2010 competition. The favourites are Brazil, who haven’t lost a World Cup they have hosted, and they are on offer at 7/2 with Betway.
