Wolves vs Burnley: Clarets deserve change of fortune

Kick-off: 1200, 25/04/2021

Stadium: Molineux


Burnley are backed to give their Premier League survival hopes a boost by picking up a positive result against Wolves at Molineux.

The Clarets are fourth from bottom after suffering a hat-trick of defeats since the international break, but have been playing better than the bare results suggest.

We’re snapping up 20/23 for Sean Dyche’s side to avoid defeat in the Midlands for our first Wolves vs Burnley prediction.

A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds

Wolves still have an outside chance of sneaking into the top half of the table following back-to-back victories.

However, Wanderers were only workmanlike in edging out both struggling Fulham and relegated Sheffield United 1-0.

Willian Jose’s goal on the hour mark was enough to send the Blades down last weekend, but that was a relatively uninspiring performance.

Nuno Espirito Santo admitted: “It wasn’t a good game. In the second half, we started better, achieved the goal, but we allowed possession and control of the game to them.

“It’s not the table, it’s how we finish, how we do things, how we build. Next weekend we have a tough one, the performance needs to improve and the players need to engage until the end.”

Wolves tend to be involved in more than their fair share of low-scoring matches, but both teams have netted in the last three renewals of this fixture.

Looking at the Wolves vs Burnley odds, we like 11/10 for that trend to continue here.

Last Wolves line-up: Patricio, Ait Nouri, Boly, Coady, Semedo, Dendoncker, Podence, Saiss, Moutinho, Willian Jose, Traore.

A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds

When Burnley beat Everton at Goodison Park before the international break, they had lost just once in eight league matches and seemed to be cruising to safety.

A trio of subsequent defeats has left them looking over their shoulders, but the Clarets have been competitive in each contest.

They led 2-0 at Southampton before going down 3-2, also went in front during a 2-1 loss to Newcastle and were drawing 1-1 at Manchester United until conceding a couple of late goals.

Dyche was encouraged by what he saw at Old Trafford and has backed his team to come through their lean patch.

“I’ve never lacked confidence or belief in what we do here, that’s for sure,” he said. “It’s about turning performances into wins and tidying up some of the details.

“The way we went about it here is another strong sign of us being tough-minded and you need that over a Premier League season.

“It’s very difficult to expect to not have some spells in the Premier League where things go against you.

“We’ve been very good at coming out of those spells with very good performances. We’ll have to do that again.”

Getting England goalkeeper Nick Pope back from a shoulder injury which has forced him to miss the last two games would be a welcome fillip.

With their next opponents being notoriously cautious starters, 8/5 for the Clarets to break the deadlock at Molineux is added to our Wolves vs Burnley betting tips.

For those wanting a bigger pay-out, let’s go with 6/1 for these sides to draw 1-1 for the third time in four meetings.

Last Burnley line-up: Peacock-Farrell, Lowton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Cork, Gudmundsson, Brownhill, McNeil, Westwood, Wood.
