Burnley have been really strong lately, and they haven’t had any easy matches in their schedule. They will now look to extend their undefeated streak when they will host Bournemouth on Saturday. Bournemouth are coming off a frustrating loss and have been really inconsistent lately. Let’s take a look at this match between two sides at the bottom half of the league table.
Date/Time: 2-22-2020, 10:00 EST
Spread: Burnley -0.25
Total: 2.25 Goals
Burnley (10-12-4) are coming off a pretty solid away match against Southampton last week. They took an early lead but were equalized shortly after. Even so, they scored the winning goal at the 60th minute for the final 2-1. They have been in excellent form in the Premier League lately (3-0-1), plying against Arsenal, Manchester United and Leicester in their previous three. Burnley are 11th in the Premier League with 34 points, just six points behind the top-five. They have been hit-or-miss at home so far (6-6-1), winning just two of their last six in all competitions (2-3-1).
On the other hand, Bournemouth (7-14-5) also took an early lead in their own match last week. But they conceded twice and eventually lost that match by 1-2. That loss came after two consecutive wins in the Premier League. But those were their only wins in their last six (2-4-0). Bournemouth are currently sitting at the 16th spot of the league table with 26 points. However, they are just six points above the relegation zone and could be in trouble if they don’t get consistent. Bournemouth have not been any good on the road either (3-9-1), losing seven of their last eight and failing to score in four of those.
Burnley beat Bournemouth by 1-0 on the road in the first round and have now won each of the last three and four of the last five. Moreover, they have been great as hosts against Bournemouth over the years (4-1-2). Burnley are also coming off a streak of great results against stronger teams and should be able to take the three points here.
