Bournemouth vs Burnley predictions and betting tips for the Premier League fixture on Saturday 6th April. Both of these sides are looking to turn their relatively poor runs of form and finish the back end of the season strongly.
Burnley will be looking to strengthen their chances of survival.
Bournemouth are looking to finish strong and push for a top half finish.
Burnley will be looking for back to back wins whereas Bournemouth are looking to turn around from back to back defeats.
Bournemouth can be one of the most exciting teams to watch in the Premier League with their attacking way of playing the game. This has however been a bit of a problem of recent with the amount of goals they have been letting in. Burnley are well known for their defensive direct approach. It is incredible to think that the reverse fixture earlier in the season ended in a 4-0 win to Burnley.
Burnley are currently sitting five points off safety and a win here would be a massive step to playing in next season’s Premier League. With three of their last four games against top six opposition, it is important that they pick up points where they can.
Bournemouth to win – 11/10
Draw – 13/5
Burnley to win – 11/4
Bournemouth have scored more than any other team currently in the bottom half and a lot of credit for this can be given to their exciting attacking duo of Joshua King and Callum Wilson. Scoring 22 goals between themselves, they have been rewarded with recent international caps for England and Norway.
Burnley come into this game after a 2-0 win against Wolves. This was a much needed win as five straight defeats before this game had plunged the Clarets back into the relegation fight. The recent goal scoring form of Dwight McNeil is very encouraging for Burnley as he has now scored in successive games.
My betting tip for this game is going to be Callum Wilson to score anytime. Bournemouth always seems to score goals at home and the most likely man to put the ball in the net is the England striker. You can get this bet at 11/8 with bet365 and that’s the second of our Bournmeouth vs Burnley betting tips for this weekend.
Burnley have a lot more to play for here than Bournemouth. The Cherries are neither going down or realistically going to finish in a European spot. Even though it may be hard to find motivation, Eddie Howe will make sure that he has his team set up for victory.
Last time Burnley visited the south coast, they came away with three points at Brighton. However, this is their only win in their last six away games. This will be a close game but I am predicting that Bournemouth’s attack will have enough. you can get Howe’s side to win 2-1 at 17/2.
EH: "Simon Francis and Lewis Cook are both positive in their rehab and they're making good strides.
