Having had their finest assets pilfered by those they regarded as divisional rivals just a few months ago, a patched up Burnley will be welcomed back to the Championship at Elland Road.
A summer surprisingly bereft of scandal has left opponents Leeds in good shape to tackle the season ahead and they certainly look worth a punt at 7/4 here.
The Clarets travel to west Yorkshire as 6/4 favourites to claim the spoils, while the draw can be backed at 11/5.
If the match-betting buffet bwin.com have put on isn’t doing the trick, there’s a short-odds punt sure to cop based on the results with which both protagonists ended the previous season.
The bet in question is backing just one or neither side to find the net, an eventuality that pays at a reasonable 17/20.
In seven of Leeds’ previous ten competitive home matches this wager would’ve lined the pockets of backers, including in four of their final five fixtures.
When on their travels, Burnley proved just as skilled when it came to booting the bet in during their ill-fated Premier League soiree, doing so on six successive sojourns to close the campaign.
