A Look At West Brom’s Betting Odds

We hope you were on the 15/4 tipped about Tony Pulis’ men winning at champions Leicester last time out, with West Brom confirming their status as the Foxes’ bogey side.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis is defying expectations once more

Pulis has clearly gotten past his surprisingly poor summer in the transfer market, with the Baggies in 11th despite having to face the likes of Everton, Tottenham, Liverpool, Manchester City and last year’s title winners already.

They will see the Clarets as somewhat easier meat, but look a tad on the short side at 87/100 to win at basecamp for only the second time this term.

A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds

Sean Dyche’s side are all the way out to 6/4 to go down after claiming seven points from the last nine available, lifting the Clarets up to nosebleed-inducing heights in ninth.

Burnley and Sean Dyche are flying high in ninth

Keeper Tom Heaton – who played the second half of England’s 2-2 draw with Spain during the international break – kept a clean sheet last time out on the road at Manchester United despite 11 shots being rained down on the 30-year-old’s goal.

Burnley aren’t tempting at 10/3 to win their first Premier League away game since the final day of the 2014/15 campaign, but with neither side likely to get over the line going by recent stats, 23/10 about the draw looks the bet to be on.
