Three victories from their last four league matches have catapulted Burnley into the Championship top two and with just one defeat so far this season, Sean Dyche’s men approach Saturday’s clash with Charlton Athletic in confident mood.
Leading odds comparison site Oddschecker.com can reveal that The Clarets are a best price 37/40 with BetVictor to take another three points at the weekend against a visiting Charlton side that have endured a very contrasting start to their season. The Addicks have tasted victory just once so far this campaign and have taken only one point from their last three matches. A much needed win for the men from East London is available at 7/2 with Coral whilst the draw is 13/5 with a host of firms.
Chris Powell’s men will be wary of the threat posed by Burnley’s in form striker Danny Ings who now has nine goals in all competitions this season. Unsurprisingly Ings is the short priced favourite with the bookmakers to open the scoring, a best price 9/2. But if punters want a bit more value, Ings strike partner Sam Vokes is 6/1 to break the deadlock. Meanwhile midfielder Scott Arfield, who has found the net three times himself this season, is a tempting 9/2 with Ladbrokes to score at any time in this one.
This is a fixture that has historically produced few goals, last season’s meetings both finishing in 1-0 victories for the away team. Four of the previous five clashes have resulted in under three goals being scored and another low scoring affair, under 2.5, is 10/11 with Paddy Power. A Burnley win and under 2.5 goals could be the best bet here and it’s 16/5 with William Hill.
It’s not just in the league that Burnley are impressing. A midweek victory against Nottingham Forest in the Capital One Cup ensured the club’s passage into the 4th round of the competition and a draw at home to Premier League side West Ham United. Sean Dyche’s men have seen their odds for League Cup glory cut from 250/1 pre-tournament, to an 80/1 best price.
