Burnley 5/2 to beat Huddersfield in Saturday’s Premier League clash
Competition: Premier League
Market: Burnley to beat Huddersfield
Odds: 5/2 @ Bet365
The Premier League moves into its final round of games for 2017 this weekend as the busy festive period goes up a notch. Many teams will be playing two games across three days, which means that squad rotation is vital as every side is desperate to pick up as many points as possible from the glut of festive fixtures. With this in mind, Burnley travel to face Huddersfield on Saturday.
Huddersfield have been one of the surprise packages of the season this year and they are steadily building a safety buffer between themselves and the relegation zone. After 20 games they have won six times, drawing five and losing nine, while they have scored 18 goals and conceded 32 times so far this season. In their last five games they have won twice, lost once and drawn two games, which has helped the newly promoted side onto 23 points for the campaign. Huddersfield have a six-point lead over Bournemouth in 18th, and the side will be desperate to continue to build upon this buffer.
For Burnley, this season has been one that has defied belief. After 20 games they have won nine matches, drawing six and losing just five, while they have scored 18 goals and conceded just 17 times, culminating in the side taking 33 points. Sean Dyche’s men are currently just four points behind Tottenham in fifth and the Europa League spot, while they are six points clear of eighth-placed Leicester. They will clearly want to chase down the sides above them, and with this in mind, we are backing Burnley with odds of 5/2 from Bet365.
