What Trueform says for Leicester vs Burnley

Leicester will be happy enough with their recent form, but Burnley have made a habit of upsetting the odds this season and are again great value at King Power Stadium.

The Clarets are up to an incredible sixth place in the Premier League table, three spots and eight points ahead of the Foxes.

With four away wins already in the book, Sean Dyche’s side look overpriced once more at 15/4 and get the nod in our Leicester vs Burnley betting predictions.

A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds

It does seem harsh to oppose Leicester following Tuesday’s excellent 2-1 triumph over Tottenham at this venue, with star duo Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez hitting superb strikes.

However, Spurs were guilty of missing some golden opportunities in that match and City may just be flattered by the lofty Trueform rating they received.

Referee Anthony Taylor also turned down a strong injury-time penalty claim from Tottenham, as the Foxes prevailed despite having just 37 per cent of the possession, being forced to defend 18 shots, compared to their seven attempts on goal.

Looking at the Leicester vs Burnley odds, Evens for the visitors to avoid defeat is another tempting option.

A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds

Burnley made it four wins from five Premier League games when securing a 2-1 success at Bournemouth on Wednesday, gaining compensation for a sickening stoppage-time loss to Arsenal three days earlier.

Record signing Chris Wood marked his return to the starting line-up after a hamstring injury by tapping in the opener at Vitality Stadium and Robbie Brady added a well-taken second on the break.

“We’re doing all of the right things at the right time at the moment,” beamed Dyche. “The pride I have in the players and their professionalism is off the scale.”

Getting Wood back is a real boost and we like 66/1 for the New Zealand striker to again break the deadlock against his former club in another 2-1 away win for our Leicester vs Burnley betting tips.
