What Trueform says for Crystal Palace vs Burnley
Crystal Palace and Burnley are tracking a very similar path on our Trueform chart and we find them hard to split ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash.
Both teams are on barren runs when it comes to tasting victory, with the Eagles going seven top-flight fixtures without a win and the Clarets six.
That all points to a Selhurst Park stalemate in our book, so 3/1 for a draw is our opening Crystal Palace vs Burnley prediction.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Palace will have been much happier with their latest result, though, ending a daunting run of matches by picking up a point at Manchester United.
Roy Hodgson’s side even had the better chances to triumph at Old Trafford, cutting the Red Devils open several times on the break.
Patrick van Aanholt and Andros Townsend wasted glorious chances either side of half-time and Mamadou Sakho wants Palace to build on their promising performance.
“We can be proud of the job we did,” he told the club website. “Even if I think we could have won, I think that it was a positive point.”
Palace also impressed when drawing 2-2 at home to Arsenal last month and were competitive in a 1-0 loss to Tottenham here recently, so there are encouraging signs.
However, they have still only picked up two points from six games at Selhurst Park, failing to find the back of the net in five of those fixtures.
Looking at the Crystal Palace vs Burnley odds, we like 17/4 for the scores to be level at half-time and full-time.
Last Palace line-up: Hennessey, Van Aanholt, Tomkins, Sakho, Wan-Bissaka, Milivojevic, Meyer, Kouyate, Townsend, McArthur, Zaha.
Palace have a near fully-fit squad to choose from, with only Christian Benteke (knee) out of action. Connor Wickham and Scott Dann have returned to full training and could be considered following recent injuries.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley are alongside Palace on nine points, just one above the relegation zone, following Monday’s 2-1 loss to Newcastle at Turf Moor.
Sam Vokes pulled a goal back for the Clarets before half-time and they pushed hard for an equaliser, but the damage had been done early on.
Sean Dyche refused to be too downbeat, though, stating: “We need to get on the right side of margins, but we also need a scratch of luck.
“Their first goal gets a hell of a deflection and the second goal’s a poor goal.
“We’ve given too many soft goals away this year, we know that, but that is getting tighter.
“The mentality of the game I’m very pleased with. The character of the side is coming back.”
The Clarets had previously ground out a goalless draw at Leicester and 13/2 for another 0-0 scoreline is added to our Crystal Palace vs Burnley betting tips.
Last Burnley line-up: Hart, Lowton, Taylor, Mee, Long, Cork, Brady, Defour, Lennon, Vokes, Wood.
Johann Berg Gudmundsson returns after illness. Both Ben Gibson and James Tarkowski played in a training game on Tuesday following hernia operations but Stephen Ward (knee) and Nick Pope (shoulder) are longer-term absentees.
Man Utd 0-0 CRYSTAL PALACE
BURNLEY 1-2 Newcastle – Sam Vokes
Head-to-head: Palace 1-0 Burnley, Burnley 1-0 Palace, Palace 0-2 Burnley, Burnley 3-2 Palace
