What Trueform says for Burnley vs Crystal Palace
Burnley and Crystal Palace both saw good runs come to an end in midweek and may now settle for regrouping with a draw at Turf Moor.
These teams are hard to split on overall form, with only goal difference separating them in the Premier League table after 28 games apiece.
Everything points to an even contest here and 9/4 for a stalemate make sense as our opening Burnley vs Crystal Palace prediction.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley had gone eight top-flight fixtures without defeat after beating Brighton and Tottenham but put in a lacklustre showing when losing 2-0 at Newcastle on Tuesday.
The Clarets were better in the second half at St James’ Park, but United coped admirably with their direct approach.
Sean Dyche admitted the game had perhaps come too quickly after last weekend’s fine win over Spurs at this venue.
He said: “You have a big result – a super-big result, in fact – when you’re playing the big boys, like we did against Tottenham.
“And then the next one you’re always wondering; ‘how does that affect things?’.
“Sometimes that’s another learning curve, but Saturday we will be back.”
The last four encounters between these teams have been tight, with none producing over two goals, so 11/2 for 1-1 stands out from the Burnley vs Crystal Palace odds.
Last Burnley line-up: Heaton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Bardsley, Cork, Gudmundsson, Hendrick, Barnes, Wood, McNeil.
Ashley Westwood is expected to return to the heart of Burnley’s midfield following illness but Steven Defour (calf) and Aaron Lennon (knee) remain sidelined.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Palace tasted defeat for the first time in seven league and cup games when going down 3-1 at home to Manchester United on Wednesday.
After Romelu Lukaku put the Red Devils in control with a double strike, Joel Ward pulled one back on 66 minutes, but Ashley Young ended hopes of a fightback.
Eagles manager Roy Hodgson said: “We made a few changes to try and get something from the game and, as so often happens against teams of this quality, they find a way of picking you off with a third goal.
“No doubt, they’re playing very well. Their organisation and work-rate was good. They do have some very, very good players on top of that and they sometimes find a way to punish you.”
Palace were uncharacteristically disorganised in defence, where they were without the injured Mamadou Sakho and Aaron Wan-Bissaka and struggled to cope with United’s height at set-pieces.
Burnley will have taken note of that and Ashley Barnes does already have a decent record against the Eagles.
We think this will be a tight tussle, but 4/1 for the 6ft 1in forward to break the deadlock is worth adding to our Burnley vs Crystal Palace betting tips.
Last Palace line-up: Guaita, Ward, Van Aanholt, Tomkins, Schlupp, Kelly, Milivojevic, Townsend, McArthur, Zaha, Batshuayi.
Palace will have Wan-Bissaka available for selection after a hamstring injury, but Sakho has been ruled out having undergone knee surgery on Thursday.
