Burnley vs Bournemouth - Free Betting Tips

Burnley
Bournemouth

This time last season, Burnley were enjoying a surprisingly successful start to the campaign while Bournemouth were winless and looked nailed-on for relegation. Fast forward a year, and Eddie Howe’s men sit fifth in the table while Sean Dyche and co. are rock bottom with a single point to their name. With the hosts looking flat after a premature end to their European adventure, Burnley vs Bournemouth betting tips will likely favour the visitors, even if the Clarets have proven that they merit being taken seriously.

This match is far from a foregone conclusion – Dyche is too smart a manager for Burnley to fall away with a whimper. However, to find Bournemouth 31/20 for the win, as you can with Unibet, is a surprise given their recent excellent form. Those may be the Burnley vs Bournemouth best odds of the day. Look to Genting, meanwhile, and you’ll find 21/10 on the visitors to win with more than 1.5 goals being scored. The Cherries have not yet this season been involved in a game with fewer goals than that, and there’s no reason to see it starting here. If you’re looking for a first scorer bet, meanwhile, get over to William Hill. They have visiting striker Josh King at 13/2 for the opener, he’s a penalty-taker, and Burnley are known for physical play. That’s got to be tempting.

Burnley vs Bournemouth Betting Tips: Form Guide

A Drop Of Claret?

After narrowly avoiding relegation in 2016/17, Burnley were widely predicted to face the drop last season due, it was claimed, to their inability to win away from home. So when they started the season by going 3-0 up, and winning, at Chelsea, it was a surprise to all concerned – except Sean Dyche. Often dismissed as a long-ball manager, Dyche has evolved this club through two and a bit seasons in the Premier League, and after taking them to seventh in the league last time out, he now faces the next challenge – how to handle being a team people take seriously.

As of this moment, it clearly doesn’t look good for the Clarets. If their current form continues, they will be relegated. In fact, they won none of their last five games last season, which means their last win on Premier League duty came against Leicester in the middle of April. They have one point this season, and it was gained on the opening day against the equally anaemic Southampton. What should worry Burnley fans isn’t so much that they only have that single point to show from their first five games. It has to be that of the teams they have played, only Manchester United finished in the top half of the Premier League last season.

These matches are supposed to be the easy ones, yet they’ve lost 1-0 at Wolves and been fortunate it wasn’t more, as well as losing 4-2 to Fulham. Are Burnley relegation-proof? No – there is a group of about six Premier League teams that are too good to go down, and they aren’t in it. Will they probably escape? Yes, they will be ready for a battle when some rivals may not be. They can start by overturning Burnley vs Bournemouth betting tips for today and winning here – but they need to be better than they have been.

Cherries Recovered From Bad Season

Bournemouth’s promotion season under Eddie Howe, in 2014/15, came out of nowhere, but more impressive has been the fact that since 2015, their top-flight status has generally been unthreatened. Even last season, which began with four consecutive defeats and saw them in the relegation zone at Christmas, ended with the Cherries in twelfth place. The best news of all, for Bournemouth fans, is that the side looks much-improved this time around. Last time out, they carved Leicester City open to lead 3-0 at halftime, a final score of 4-2 looking better than it really was for Claude Puel’s visitors due to two very late goals.

Indeed, only Chelsea have managed to beat Howe’s side so far this season – and they’ve won their first five, so AFCB are in decent company. They’ve won straightforward games – an opening day game at home to Cardiff is a very gentle start – and tougher ones, such as the trip to West Ham in which they had to come from behind to triumph 2-1. Against Everton, they gave their visitors a two-goal start despite having a man advantage. Then they had Adam Smith sent off, and still managed to come back to draw the game. This is a Bournemouth side with resilience.

While Burnley vs Bournemouth match previews may suggest that Howe’s men will find this visit to Burnley easier than usual, one other thing needs to be remembered. The Cherries are a thrilling side, but frustrating – they can beat the best, and lose to the chaff, as they showed last season by winning 3-0 at Chelsea, then losing 4-1 at Huddersfield a fortnight later.

Burnley vs Bournemouth Preview: Recent Meetings

These sides met most recently at the end of last season, Burnley having already secured a Europa League spot and Bournemouth so mid-table they would have been forgiven for going on holiday early and missing this one. However, they did show up and, after Chris Wood had fired the hosts into a 1-0 lead, they rallied in the second half. Josh King cracked home an equaliser with 15 minutes to play and, three minutes into time added on, substitutes Jermaine Defoe and Callum Wilson combined for the latter to score the winner.

Earlier in the season, at the end of November 2017, Wood again opened the scoring. On that occasion, though, Burnley added to their lead through Robbie Brady, on 5 minutes. King did pull one back for the hosts, but it was to be Dyche’s men who picked up the away win that day.

Burnley vs Bournemouth Prediction: Battling Away Win

Fifteen places separate these sides in the league table – but, with just five games gone, that’s a relatively meaningless stat. If it is still the case after thirty-five games, then one of them has cause for celebration, and the other can start programming Portsmouth into the sat-nav for the 2019/20 season. The reason it is important to point this out is that Bournemouth could lose this game, and it wouldn’t tarnish the fact that they’ve started the season very impressively. Burnley could win it, but they’ll need to show sustained good form to be out of the woods as far as relegation goes.

As it happens, our Burnley vs Bournemouth prediction is for Bournemouth’s upward momentum to continue, and the downward brand being shown by Burnley to do likewise for the moment. The Clarets are really struggling to handle attacking teams who play progressive football, and that describes the Cherries to a T. This will, in all likelihood, be a close game, but it’s worth having faith in the visitors to come away with the points once the 90 minutes are up here.
