Burnley host champions Leicester on Tuesday in a full round of midweek Premier League fixtures and I’ll be backing a home win.
The weekend went well with wins for the Clarets and Celta Vigo, as well as a Roger Federer five-set victory in the Australian Open final.
Sunday was a setback as both Borussia Dortmund and Sevilla failed to win, the latter had a man sent off after a couple of minutes to essentially end that particular bet, but all in all it was a good few days.
I feel like a broken record every time Burnley play at home but they’ve been so good at Turf Moor this season they can’t be ignored – especially at a generous 2/1 to down an out of sorts Foxes.
The Clarets head into their midweek assignment seeking a seventh straight home win in all competitions, while Leicester are still without a victory on the road after 11 attempts.
Burnley have a better home record than all four of their illustrious neighbours from Manchester and Liverpool, with only Man City and Arsenal able to beat them at Turf Moor since their opening day loss to Swansea.
Sean Dyche’s men are 2/1 in the standard match betting market and that is a good enough price to make it my top bet for this clash but there are other options if you’re looking for even better value.
In two of their previous four home league wins Burnley have been level at the break before going on to claim a win and a draw/Burnley result in the half-time/full-time market appeals at 19/4. The Clarets have also managed three consecutive clean sheets at Turf Moor, and four in their last six games, so Burnley to win to zero at 16/5 is another attractive option against a Leicester side who have managed just eight goals on the road.
