Burnley 11/5 to beat Brighton in Saturday’s Premier League showdown
Competition: Premier League
Market: Burnley to beat Brighton
Odds: 11/5 @ Bet365
The Premier League is back with another round of games that will surely keep the viewers on the edge of their seats. The festive period is forcing teams to play a number of gruelling games in quick succession, but the prize of points will prove worth it for any side that can embark upon a good run of form throughout December. With this in mind, Burnley travel to Brighton on Saturday.
Brighton have been struggling massively in recent weeks and they are in need of a win to overturn an awful run of form. In their last five, they have lost four times and drawn once, seeing them onto 17 points for the season so far. The newly-promoted side are just three points above the relegation zone, and another defeat would see pressure build to massive levels, with a few bad performances over December often seeing a side free-falling down the league table.
Burnley, on the other hand, have been outstanding this season. They currently sit in sixth-place in the league with 31 points, one ahead of Arsenal, and level with Liverpool and Tottenham. In their last five they have won three times and lost twice, while across the season they have scored 16 times and conceded just 12 goals. If Pep Guardiola and his Manchester City side were not in such good form, then Sean Dyche would surely be the favourite to pick up the manager of the season award if Burnley can continue on their upward curve. With all of this in mind, we are backing Burnley with odds of 11/5 from Bet365.
