Huddersfield Town
Burnley

While the likes of Liverpool are making headlines at the top of the league, there’s also a dramatic battle being fought at the bottom – although in this case, it’s for survival rather than glory. The looming shadow of relegation arches ever closer for each team within its firing line, and for these two, this is one of the best chances they’ll have to make a break for it.

Goals have been hard to come by for both teams so far this season, with both teams having scored less than a goal per game thus far. As a result, choosing “BTTS – No” seems like a decent option, with Paddy Power offering odds of 4/6 on such an eventuality. If you are looking to back a winner, then it could be worth looking for a low-score win, with the home team perhaps slightly preferable; 5/1 on Huddersfield to win 1-0 at 888sport might suit. Alternatively, there’s always a chance that malaise will continue for the Terriers, with Burnley able to sneak a winner later on; Draw/Away is 13/2 at William Hill is undoubtedly a high-risk bet, but it’s not outside the realms of possibility.

Huddersfield Town vs Burnley Betting Tips: Form Guide

Terriers With No Bark And No Bite

It always feels cruel to talk down Huddersfield – they have the lowest wage budget and cheapest squad in the Premier League, so the fact they’re there at all is impressive. However, December demonstrated the real problems they are going to have accumulating points to stay afloat for another season.

Sure, no-one would have expected them to pick up anything against Arsenal, and only losing 1-0 at the Emirates was far from a humiliation. They managed a goal at Old Trafford, in a 3-1 loss. However, three of the last five games have been against potential rivals in the relegation fight, and the results don’t make for edifying reading for David Wagner.

Consecutive home games against Newcastle (0-1) and Southampton (1-3), realistic opportunities to get points on the board, came and went with nothing gained. A trip to Fulham in their last fixture of 2018, meanwhile, saw the Cottagers eke out a four-point gap to the rock-bottom Town, Alexsandar Mitrovic’s injury-time winner feeling like a decisive blow to the Terriers.

There is little cause for home optimism in Huddersfield Town vs Burnley match previews. For sure, the visitors have been having a shoddy season – but opponents have been finding that their own form picks up quickly when they visit the John Smith’s Stadium this campaign.

Clarets Show Signs Of Revival

Credit to Burnley’s owners, who could have reacted to this season’s poor form by sacking Sean Dyche and installing a new man to lift them up the table. Last season’s seventh place was a miracle for the Turf Moor side, and being in a relegation battle this season is more a reversion to the mean than anything else. Burnley have also shown recently that they may have the mettle to win this fight.

Sure, three of the last five games have been lost, but even in their landmark 2017/18 season they wouldn’t have been favoured to beat Spurs, Arsenal and Everton. A 5-1 reverse at Goodison spurred Dyche to promote Tom Heaton to the starting goalkeeper berth ahead of Joe Hart, and the change saw a rare clean sheet as the Clarets beat West Ham 2-0. Allied to a 1-0 win over Brighton at the start of the month, there are some reasons to be cheerful for Dyche and co.

With that said, the last time these sides met, the situation was much the same. If you are basing your Huddersfield Town vs Burnley betting tips for today on recent form, it is worth remembering that the visitors have been taking a step forward and then two steps back all season long. In the face of a desperate Huddersfield display, there’s a chance the visitors will wobble.

Huddersfield Town vs Burnley Preview: Recent Meetings

What’s more astonishing than the fact that these two teams have over a century of history together is that, in all that time, neither team has managed to get a serious overall advantage. Burnley have a handful more wins, but nothing definitive in the grand scheme of things. They tend to trade wins in clusters, and this pattern can be seen in recent times.

There’s a large gap between 2002 and 2012, where these two don’t face off at all, giving us a clear starting point for modern games. And since August 2012, Huddersfield have won three, Burnley have won three and they have drawn – you guessed it – three times. This is not only a battle to stay in the Premier League: it’s a tie-breaker.

Huddersfield Town vs Burnley Prediction: Close home win

Statistically, Burnley have a clear advantage. However, there’s more to this story than just results. The Terriers’ Premier League tale is partly one of missed opportunities and hard luck. Although not without fault, Huddersfield have put on very good performances, even if they have consistently failed to turn that into much-needed points. Huddersfield are long overdue a win based on how they’ve played, and we think with the home-field advantage, they’ll just pull it out of the bag here.

The Terriers tend to score early at home, so we predict they’ll manage the first goal and hold off until the final whistle, with a final scoreline of 1-0. By no means will the game be a classic, but if it ignites a turnaround in Huddersfield’s season, they’re unlikely to care.
