Burnley enjoyed some excellent form throughout the first half of the season however this is now in serious danger of falling flat and the Clarets head into tonight’s clash with Newcastle United on the back of a dismal run which has seen them collect just three points from a possible twenty-one. Indeed Burnley were until last week the ‘best of the rest’ outside the top-six, however a poor run has resulted in Leicester City climbing above them and one has to look all the way back to 12th December to find the last win for Burnley. They have remained largely competitive in this dismal run, however this counts for little unless it is converted into points and Sean Dyche will be desperate for three of those at St James’ Park tonight.
Dyche can take hope from the fact that the Magpies are winless at home in the Premier League since October and their last outing in front of their home fans ended in a dismal 1-1 draw with struggling Swansea City. Since then Newcastle have been thumped 3-1 at Manchester City and 3-0 at Chelsea with Rafael Benitez clearly desperate to bring in some new players which could help stop the rot.
Nevertheless the bookmakers continue to under-rate Burnley and despite the fact that their form away from home is certainly not as good as it was earlier in the campaign, they do appear somewhat overpriced for the win at odds of 3/1 with BetVictor Free Bets. That’s exactly what we’ll be predicting for this match as the Clarets look to return to winning ways and Newcastle United move ever closer into the danger zone.
