Burnley v Arsenal betting tips for Saturday’s Premier League match with the best predictions from our free betting preview.
Second from top face second from bottom in the Premier League this weekend when Burnley welcome Arsenal to Turf Moor and we have football betting tips.
Following Manchester City’s defeat to Crystal Palace on Monday night, the Gunners are up to second-place in the table behind leaders Chelsea after stringing together an impressive run of seven consecutive league wins. In fact, they have won 10 of their last 11 matches and are aiming to become the first team in the league this season to win eight games in a row.
A trip to face relegation favourites Burnley on Saturday may on the face of it seem a foregone conclusion but Arsenal need to be wary of the Clarets’ impressive record against the bigger teams this season. Sunday’s goalless draw against Spurs follows similar results against Chelsea and Manchester United this campaign and they also scalped Champions Manchester City at Turf Moor last month.
Arsenal have exactly the same record (P31, W19, D6, L6) as they did at this stage last season, in which their title challenge collapsed in the final few months to see them finish fourth. While Arsene Wenger will be looking to hold on to second-place, their winning run must come to an end eventually and very often in football unbeaten runs end at the most surprising of venues.
Only Sunderland (14) have drawn more often than Burnley (11) this season, and with the home side having won just one of their last 10 matches, if the Gunners are to drop points on Saturday it’s more likely to be through a draw than defeat.
A draw and both teams to score is therefore our first Burnley v Arsenal betting tip at 19/4 with Betway.
Burnley’s George Boyd has scored five goals this season and looked the most threatening to find the opening goal for the Clarets in the 0-0 draw with Tottenham last Sunday.
If Burnley draw first blood on Saturday we’re going with the Scotland midfielder to open the scoring and is our second football tip at 18/1 with Bet365.
Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud has been in sensational goalscoring form since his return from injury in the second part of this season. The France international has scored 10 goals in his last 10 appearances and has played a big role in Arsenal’s recent good run.
The striker to score anytime is our final betting tip and is best priced at 6/5 with Bet Victor.
The Gunners ran out eventual 3-0 winners when the sides last met in November despite a stubborn Burnley defence keeping Arsenal out for 70 minutes at the Emirates. Few sides have found it easy playing at Turf Moor this season and Arsenal cannot be complacent on Saturday.
Draw and both teams to score – 19/4 with Betway.
George Boyd first goalscorer – 18/1 with Bet365.
Olivier Giroud – 6/5 with Bet Victor.
