Burnley seem ready to have a real crack at FA Cup glory this season and are fancied to get the better of Bournemouth at Turf Moor.
The Clarets were convincing 3-0 victors at Fulham in round four and have performed with credit in the Premier League since that tie.
Their opponents are more concerned with getting back into the top flight, so 13/10 for a home win is our first Burnley vs Bournemouth prediction.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley followed up the Craven Cottage cup romp by beating Aston Villa 3-2 at this venue, before understandably finding Chelsea and Manchester City too strong.
Saturday’s 1-1 draw with an in-form Brighton outfit was another solid effort, which kept Sean Dyche’s side a handy eight points clear of the drop zone.
Dyche was happy with the overall performance against Albion, especially a more purposeful showing after half-time.
He said: “I don’t think there would have been too many people disgruntled if it was two or three to us with the amount of quality that we had going forwards.
“We’ve got to continue with that because it’s one of the things we have questioned this season.
“That freedom to go and attack, as we did in that second half, we have to continue with that mentality and find that balance.”
Maintaining a positive approach would make Burnley vs Bournemouth odds.
A Look At Bournemouth’s Betting Odds
Bournemouth enjoyed a nice 4-1 win over Oldham in round three and then came through a tougher test versus Crawley with a 2-1 success.
However, those results weren’t enough to save manager Jason Tindall from being dismissed following a run of four straight Championship defeats.
Jonathan Woodgate took over first-team affairs for a welcome 3-2 win against Birmingham over the weekend, which kept them sixth in the table.
“My remit was to manage against Birmingham and that’s as far as it goes,” reported Woodgate. “I just wanted to get three points and it doesn’t matter how you get it.
“You can talk about philosophies and this and that forever, but if you don’t get results, you’re not in the job.”
However, it was a far from convincing display against a team now in the bottom three, with the Cherries guilty of some hapless defending.
Bournemouth are capable of playing good football going forward, but we feel they will struggle to cope at the back with Burnley’s physicality.
Let’s go with 15/4 for a home win and both teams to score to finish off our Burnley vs Bournemouth betting tips.
