Burnley are hovering precariously above the relegation zone after three consecutive losses and will want to stop that slide when they host Brendan Rodgers and his Leicester team at Turf Moor. Form Labs return with their betting preview and tips for the game and don’t forget to see where the value lies with our enhanced odds for the weekend’s games in our FanBoosts section.
First Win For Rodgers
Brendan Rogers secured his first win as Leicester City boss when downing the only side the league yet to win on the road this term, Fulham.
That victory sees them with two wins from their last three outings now, which is an impressive turnaround following a run of six defeats from seven winless matches in all competitions under Claude Puel.
However, both those recent wins came at the King Power and they’ve lost four of their last five trips, so Rogers will know his side will have to be fully focused if they’re to enjoy more success at Burnley.
Indeed, having won at the Amex and then back at Turf Moor against Spurs, the Clarets have since lost their momentum with consecutive defeats to Newcastle, Palace and Liverpool and they’ll need to front up against a Leicester side with renewed confidence.
Burnley’s Turbulent Season
Sean Dyche’s men have had a fairly turbulent season thus far, but having won five of 11 league matches since late December, only losing to those aforementioned three sides, they have to be respected.
In fact, one thing they have improved on this season is their output in the final third as they have seven more goals to their name this year than at the exact same point last season, even if they’re 10 places worse off.
The changing factor has been their defence as they’ve conceded over double the amount of goals at this stage and the back four can’t seem to replicate last season’s impressive defensive displays with just six clean sheets from their 30 matches.
Burnley v Leicester Betting Tips
Both those factors have meant we’ve seen more goals in Burnley’s matches this season and in their 13 most recent matches, both teams have netted in 10, while nine had at least three strikes.
It’s been a similar outcome for the visitors this term with both sides netting in eight of their last nine league outings, including each of their last four on the road as only Man Utd could keep them out when the Foxes were at home.
With that in mind, the both teams to score market certainly appears a solid bet to get behind.
