Crystal Palace have won on their last two trips to Turf Moor and are backed to beat struggling Burnley there in the Premier League again on Monday.
The second-from-bottom Clarets have gone four top-flight fixtures without scoring a goal and have lost all three home games so far this season.
We feel 7/4 for an away win is hard to resist for our first Burnley vs Crystal Palace prediction.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Having Ben Mee fit again was a boost for Burnley as they doubled their points tally with a 0-0 draw at Brighton before the international break.
However, Albion dominated for long periods of that match and really should have capitalised on a 19-4 advantage in attempts on goal.
Mee, who returned from a 15-game injury absence, insists the club’s worst start to a top-flight season is not causing panic.
He said: “We need to improve our position, no doubt about it, and pick up points, but we’ve been in situations like this before and the togetherness of the squad is always there and the belief is there for sure.
“We’ve got plenty of work to do and there’s a long way to go, but the confidence is coming back and we are looking forward to the challenge that’s ahead.
“There’s no panic. We know where we need to get to and what we need to work on.”
The misfiring Clarets have shown few encouraging signs going forward, though, and are yet to score on their own ground this term.
Last Burnley line-up: Pope, Lowton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Brownhill, McNeil, Brady, Westwood, Wood, Barnes.
Robbie Brady is a doubt due to a tight hamstring and Dale Stephens is out with a similar issue but Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Charlie Taylor should be in contention despite niggles.
Erik Pieters has recovered from a calf injury while fellow defender Phil Bardsley is available again having tested positive for coronavirus last month.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Palace have already picked up a couple of away wins at Manchester United and Fulham during a decent start to the campaign.
A convincing 4-1 victory over Leeds at Selhurst Park last time out put them on 13 points and eighth in the table.
As usual, Wilfried Zaha has been the catalyst for much of the good work done by the Eagles, but Roy Hodgson does have other outlets up front.
Michy Batshuayi has scored five times in his last three games for Belgium, while Jordan Ayew opened his account for the season against Leeds.
Summer signing Eberechi Eze also grabbed his first goal for the club in that victory via a stunning free-kick and has impressed Hodgson.
“He has looked at home ever since he arrived and his training sessions have been constantly impressive,” beamed the manager.
“We have always known we have bought the right person and someone who will serve the club in very good stead in years to come.
“He has had to be a bit patient because Andros Townsend and Jeff Schlupp are very good players in that position too, so it’s been nice to have that option.
“It felt the right time to unleash him, as it were, and he certainly responded and lived up to the expectations I have of him.”
Turf Moor in November is more of a setting for seasoned performers, though, and Zaha is the man to watch after netting here for the past two seasons.
Last Palace line-up: Guaita, Van Aanholt, Dann, Clyne, Kouyate, Townsend, McArthur, Eze, Riedewald, Ayew, Zaha.
Palace have been boosted by the return to fitness of defenders Joel Ward (groin), Tyrick Mitchell (knock) and James Tomkins (thigh).
Ebere Eze was withdrawn from England Under-21 duty as a precaution and is a doubt, while Luka Milivojevic serves the second game of a three-match suspension.
