Burnley vs Huddersfield Town | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
This is a very important game for the Clarets. They can win and turn the table around after a poor start. Huddersfield, one of the weakest teams in the league, is coming to town, and Burnley has an opportunity to grab a third win in a row which would definitely mean that the crisis is behind them. The most recent H2H tradition is on their side, and they have every reason to hope for a win.
Dyche’s boys took all three points in Wales against Cardiff, 1:2, with Sam Vokes goal in the 70th minute. Huddersfield added one more loss to their record this season, this time against the Spurs who routinely won at John Smith’s Stadium with 0:2.
The Clarets have two in a row when looking at the Premiership matches. The first one was at home against Bournemouth, 4:0, and now this one in Cardiff. In the meantime, they got eliminated from the English Football League Cup by Burton, but we can say without any hesitation, that they didn’t want to play this competition. Their focus is only on the Premier League. What is very interesting is that the game is Wales was the third one in a row which ended with over 2.5 goals, and that is something highly unusual when Burnley is on the pitch.
The Terrier’s loss against Tottenham was the third consecutive for Wagner’s team. Overall, it was the ninth game for them without a win, in a row. Now, that is something pretty disturbing for the fans and the board of this club. What is also frustrating is their weak attack, which couldn’t net four times in the latest six fixtures. Generally speaking, Huddersfield’s matches are not interesting, and they don’t finish with many goals. In the last six, only one went above 2.5 scores, which pretty much tells you everything. One fact for all you punters. The Terriers have only one win in the latest 13 away games in the Premiership.
Latest Team News
Roby Brady’s fitness is still questionable, and he is doubtful for this event. Ben Gibson and Nick Pope will probably be sidelined, while James Tarkowski is expected to appear. Ramadan Sobhi is not going to be in Huddersfield’s protocol for this clash. The same situation is with Terence Kongolo, while Christopher Schindler will probably play.
Burnley has a better record in this matchup. The Clarets won in 33 games out of 73 matches. The Terriers have six wins fewer, and 13 games ended without a triumphant side. Last season we saw two goalless draws in both fixtures.
Odds and Predictions
The bookies gave 2.05 on the hosts, and this is a bit surprising for us. A draw is at 3.10, while Huddersfield’s win will multiply your stake four times.
Burnley vs Huddersfield Town | Top Betting Tip: Burnley (2-0)
We said that the odds for home team’s victory here are surprising for us. They are way higher than any of us expected, and from this point of view, it is a gift we shouldn’t miss. Burnley is going up with the form currently, while on the other side, Huddersfield is in a hole. A deep one. Besides that, it is our belief that the Clarets have a much better team, and that they deserve more than just a 12th position. The Terriers will be fighting to stay in the Premiership, but if they continue to play like this, it would be a mission impossible to avoid relegation. We already said it, and we are going to repeat, the Terriers haven’t got the needed quality to compete on this level. The efficiency of this match will be low because both teams are defensive-minded. Burnley was one of the toughest squads last week, and their rivals in this clash will focus their tactics on protecting an own goal. So, under 2.5 goals is the best choice here. Our final word, Burnley – Huddersfield 2:0.
