Burnley vs Bournemouth predictions and betting tips for the Premier League fixture on Sunday 13th May, with an anytime goalscorer tip and correct score prediction included.
The outcome of Bournemouth’s visit to Burnley on Sunday will have few implications for either side in the context of their respective seasons. Burnley have already cemented a remarkable Europa League spot while their visitors are safe from relegation but unable to finish any higher than 10th position in the table. What will be our tipsters’ Premier League betting tips and predictions for this clash?
Sean Dyche’s side have enjoyed a fairy-tale campaign achieved off the back of a compact defence and being difficult to beat. They have however let their high standards slip a little in recent weeks, failing to win any of their last four matches and conceding in 6 of their last seven.
Bournemouth, meanwhile, have managed to score in each of their last sixteen matches against sides outside the top six, making a both teams to score punt worth considering here. Coral go a very reasonable 7/10 on this market which is why it’s a ‘must feature’ in my Burnley vs Bournemouth predictions for the Premier League this weekend.
It’s fair to say that neither Burnley nor Bournemouth possess a striker who has been in red hot form this season, but that doesn’t mean we can’t find a bit of value in any anytime goalscorer selection. Cherries hitman Josh King registered 16 Premier League goals last season, but hasn’t quite managed to reach the same heights since. The Norwegian international has still popped up on eight occasions – not overly prolific, but still backable for our Burnley v Bournemouth predictions given that Unibet offer 57/17 on the ex-Manchester United forward popping up at some point during the 90 minutes at Turf Moor.
Last weekend aside, it’s rare that Burnley are on the receiving end of a drubbing or dishing out a hammering of their own. Although the shackles might be removed from the shoulders of players given the relative insignificance of this fixture, it’s still difficult to see a goal fest happening. Instead, I’ll plump for a 1-1 draw in Lancashire which seems commensurate with Burnley’s recent poor form and Bournemouth’s status as a middling, average Premier League side. You can get a best price of 6/1 on this scoreline with William Hill, and this makes up my third Burnley vs Bournemouth betting tip for the final Premier League fixture of this season.
The hosts are odds-against favourites at 6/5 (Betfair) to secure their fifteenth win of an impressive season. A Bournemouth victory is 23/10 with William Hill, while a draw is similarly priced with various firms at 12/5.
If ever a match provided managers with an opportunity to integrate youth players or try something different, this is it. Neither side played in midweek but given that this is the final match of the season, there appears to be no need for any player to be rested from their clubs’ perspectives. Long-term servant Scott Arfield may feature, though, with the Canadian international keen to say goodbye to the Burnley fans before making the switch to Rangers in the summer.
