What Trueform says for Burnley vs Tottenham
Burnley have a poor record against Tottenham, picking up just one point from their last five Premier League encounters, but are playing well enough to be competitive this weekend.
The Clarets are unbeaten in seven top-flight fixtures, showing resilience at the back, plus pace and power up front.
Punters can get 23/20 for Sean Dyche’s side to avoid defeat again here and that is good enough to be our opening Burnley vs Tottenham prediction.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley looked in big relegation trouble over Christmas but made it 15 points out of a possible 21 when winning 3-1 at Brighton last time out.
A brace from Chris Wood and a penalty from Ashley Barnes did the damage at the Amex Stadium, before Shane Duffy claimed a consolation goal for the Seagulls.
“Pleased with seven unbeaten in the Premier League, it’s another historical marker for these players,” said Dyche.
“Mostly pleased for the mentality of the group, because heavy questions this year, different kind of season.”
Wood and Barnes have formed a fine partnership up front, boosted by the introduction of eye-catching teenage winger Dwight McNeil.
Looking at the Burnley vs Tottenham odds, we like 87/100 for both teams to score in this clash.
Last Burnley line-up: Heaton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Bardsley, Cork, Hendrick, Westwood, Barnes, Wood, McNeil.
Burnley expect to have Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Robbie Brady available, but midfielder Steven Defour will once again be missing. Winger Aaron Lennon remains sidelined by a knee injury.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Admittedly, Tottenham will provide a tough test, as they have also been firing on all cylinders, despite the continued absence of Harry Kane and Dele Alli.
A 3-1 triumph over Leicester gave Spurs their fourth straight Premier League success and that was followed by an outstanding 3-0 defeat of Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.
Jan Vertonghen crossed for Son Heung-min to strike and then scored the second goal in the 83rd minute, with Fernando Llorente capping off a memorable night.
Harry Winks said: “It is up there with one of the greatest results I have had in a Spurs shirt.
“It was a big and important game, so to get the result was fantastic for us and I am incredibly proud and delighted to be playing for this team.”
The question now is whether Spurs can get themselves up for a trip to Turf Moor, ahead of facing Chelsea, Arsenal and Dortmund again in the following 10 days.
We fear there may be an initial drop in intensity, so 37/20 for the Clarets to score first is added to our Burnley vs Tottenham betting tips.
Last Tottenham line-up: Lloris, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Sanchez, Foyth, Aurier, Winks, Sissoko, Eriksen, Moura, Son.
Kane has returned to training after a seven-game absence with an ankle injury. Alli (hamstring) remains injured but is nearing a return, while Danny Rose will be assessed as he has been laid low with illness.
