Burnley are well fancied to repeat their historic achievement of last season and earn another top half finish in the Premier League.

The Clarets earned their best top-flight finish since 1974 as they claimed seventh place in the Premier League, and earn a return to European competition after 51 years.

And despite those extra commitments in the Europa League, punters are heavily backing Sean Dyche's side again, despite bookmakers making them ninth favourite (4/1) to finish in the top 10 again.

The Clarets are also expected to retain their Premier League status again, attracting 13% of all bets since June 1st on who will remain in the league following the 2018/19 season.

Dyche’s men are understandably a sizable price to win the Premier League, being touted as a lofty 1000/1 to ‘do a Leicester’ and win the title.

In regards to Burnley finishing in the Champions League spots, they’re a 150/1 long-shot to go one further than their Europa League endeavours.

A top half finish is more than achievable according to bookies, with Dyche’s side touted at just 4/1 to finish top 10.

Chris Wood is Burnley’s biggest chance of winning the Golden Boot at 100/1.
