Burnley play Barnsley in an early FA Cup 3rd round kick-off this weekend and this looks like of the matches where we could see an upset.
Burnley are struggling in the Premier League this season and it would be no surprise to see them knocked out of the FA Cup by League One play-off chasers Barnsley.
For our prediction on this match we are siding with the League One visitors here and the odds for them to win the match are 15/4 with Bet Victor. For a safer bet, you can bet on Barnsley to win or draw at odds of Evens with the same firm.
It has been a real struggle for Burnley in the Premier League this season and their early start in the Europa League has not helped this. With a similar squad to last season, it is hard to pinpoint what has gone wrong for Sean Dyche’s side. The win at home to West Ham in their last match was vital and Dyche will hope that can encourage them to pull away from the relegation zone – it is unlikely he’ll be prioritising the FA Cup this season that’s why our tipster is keen on betting on Barnsley here.
The League One side from Yorkshire have had a good start to the season as they look to bounce back to the Championship and currently sit fourth. They are unbeaten in their last five matches and recently scored four away from home against Southend.
Burnley were knocked out the FA Cup at home to Lincoln two years ago and we’re hoping Barnsley can do the same here, although using the double chance market means we’ll have a winning bet even if this FA Cup tie is a draw.
Barnsley to win or draw – Evens with Bet Victor.
