There’s no rest for the wicked in the Championship and hot on the heels of their weekend exertions, Burnley will lock horns with Barnsley at Turf Moor on Tuesday evening.
The Clarets are the 7/10 favourites in bwin’s 3Way football betting market for the match, with the draw available at 13/5 and an away victory priced up at odds of 15/4.
However, with Eddie Howe’s team displaying a recent penchant for two-goal games, backing a brace of net busters could provide the perfect punt in this clash.
Burnley’s 2-0 defeat to Southampton on Saturday may have dented their play-off hopes, but the result did continue a recent trend for the Lancashire club.
Four of their last five games have seen exactly two goals scored and backing a repeat here at odds of 27/10 could provide returns of £92.50 when using bwin’s free £25 bet for registering.
For those punters seeking a correct score bet while also sticking to the same theme, backing Burnley to take a 2-0 victory at home over a relegation-threatened Barnsley looks the best option at 31/4.
The odds are made all the more enticing given that Burnley’s previous two wins have come by that exact 2-0 scoreline.
Having said that, Tykes fans can hold on to some hope, with their side faring well in front of goal against Burnley in recent times – they have scored in all but one of the last ten meetings between the sides.
With Burnley also having scored in eight of those ten encounters, there is plenty of logic for a 1-1 final score at 11/2. which would see the two-goal hoodoo remain in place for the Clarets.
As a final thought, it is worth noting that In both of their previous encounters in the Championship, Barnsley have gone in a goal up at half-time and you can get odds of 27/10 on the Yorkshire side repeating the trick at Turf Moor.
Either way, two looks set to provide the magic number for punters this Tuesday – and if you’re not sure who will get the goals, back two exactly at very decent price of 27/10.
