What Trueform says for Burnley vs Wolves
A run of four successive defeats have dropped Burnley back into the Premier League relegation fight.
Wolves, on the other hand, are enjoying their first season back in the top flight and they sit seventh with eight games remaining.
Wanderers have struggled against teams below them on the road this season so a draw at 9/4 is a solid option as our first Burnley vs Wolves prediction.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
An eight-game unbeaten run at the turn of the year, including a 2-2 draw at Manchester United, appeared to have steered Burnley away from the dog fight at the bottom of the league.
But consecutive losses to Newcastle, Crystal Palace, Liverpool and Leicester means the Clarets now sit in 17th place, with just a two-point cushion over Cardiff.
The reverse to Leicester was particularly galling given the Foxes had to play the majority of the match with 10 men following Harry Maguire’s fourth-minute dismissal for a professional foul.
Although Dwight McNeil cancelled out James Maddison’s fine free-kick, Wes Morgan headed in a 90th-minute winner for Brendan Rodgers’ side.
Boss Sean Dyche insisted there will be no panic, saying: “Since Christmas, we’ve had eight big results and now had four go against us. This is a tough one, but that’s the reality of the Premier League.
“But we have seven more games and they are all very important games for all different reasons. The only way we can look after ourselves is to play well enough.”
Last Burnley line-up: Heaton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Bardsley, Cork, Gudmundsson, Westwood, Barnes, Wood, McNeil.
Burnley are assessing winger Johann Berg Gudmundsson, who missed Iceland’s 4-0 loss to France on Monday and has been nursing a minor calf injury.
Aaron Lennon is pushing to be involved again before the end of the season after knee surgery, but Steven Defour is likely to be sidelined for the rest of the campaign having undergone a calf operation.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Wolves went into the international break on a high after booking their place in the semi-finals of the FA Cup for the first time in 21 years by beating Manchester United 2-1 at Molineux.
Goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota put Wolves 2-0 ahead with Marcus Rashford netting a consolation deep into stoppage time with Nuno Espirito Santo’s side now meeting Watford for a place in the end-of-season showpiece.
The Portuguese said: “It means a lot. The FA Cup is the oldest competition there is.
“We played well and we achieved it with the amazing support of our fans, pushing us and believing in us. The noise was fantastic, so when you achieve something I see that we did it together. We did it together.”
That result came on the back of a 1-1 draw at Chelsea, who levelled in stoppage time through Eden Hazard, but despite winning at Tottenham and also taking points on the road at Old Trafford and Emirates Stadium, Wolves have been unable to replicate that against some of the other teams below them.
They have lost at Cardiff and Huddersfield as well as being held by Fulham at Craven Cottage and they will face another tough test against a Burnley side battling for their lives.
A 1-1 scoreline has featured in five of Wanderers’ games on their travels this season, and that was the score when the teams last met at Turf Moor in 2016, so let’s complete our Burnley vs Wolves betting tips by going for that result again at 23/4.
Last Wolves line-up: Ruddy, Doherty, Boly, Coady, Jonny, Neves, Jota, Saiss, Moutinho, Dendoncker, Jimenez.
Ryan Bennett is expected to be the only absentee for Wolves. The defender will complete a two-match Premier League ban after receiving his 10th yellow card of the season.
Rui Patricio will return in goal after John Ruddy played in the FA Cup victory.
BURNLEY 1-2 Leicester – Dwight McNeil
WOLVES 2-1 Man Utd – Raul Jimenez, Diogo Jota
Head-to-head: Wolves 1-0 Burnley, Burnley 1-1 Wolves, Wolves 0-0 Burnley
