Burnley’s Premier League home form has been back to the levels expected from the Clarets and they are fancied to see off Fulham on Sunday.
Sean Dyche’s men have claimed three wins and a draw with high-flying Everton from their last four outings at Turf Moor, helping them to climb out of the drop zone.
We’re happy to take 6/5 for the hot streak to continue with another victory here as our first Burnley vs Fulham prediction.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Ben Mee’s first-half header proved enough for Burnley to edge out Sheffield United here, which gave us a 23/4 correct score pay-out.
Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood also forced Blades keeper Aaron Ramsdale to make a couple of fine saves in a pretty tight tussle.
That was a third 1-0 triumph in eight games for the Clarets, following on from a home victory over Crystal Palace and a win at Arsenal.
Adding to the feelgood factor at Turf Moor was the news that American buyers ALK Capital have completed their takeover of the club.
Incoming chairman Alan Pace pledged: “We are very prepared to come in and support Sean and the management team.
“We need time to understand what their needs are, what they have been planning for, what the decisions were which they have taken so far and where they are desiring to go to – but we are fully prepared to back the manager.”
Looking at the Burnley vs Fulham odds, there is plenty of appeal in 11/2 for the Clarets to prevail 1-0 once more.
Last Burnley line-up: Pope, Lowton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters, Brownhill, Brady, Westwood, Wood, Barnes.
A Look At Fulham’s Betting Odds
Fulham have also been battling hard to boost their survival hopes, grinding out four consecutive draws versus Liverpool, Brighton, Newcastle and Southampton.
Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa and Ivan Cavaleiro missed good opportunities against the Saints while Aleksandar Mitrovic went close.
Southampton did have two goals ruled out via VAR and hit the bar from a James Ward-Prowse free-kick but the Cottagers more than held their own.
Assistant coach Stuart Gray said: “I’m a glass-half-full guy and four games unbeaten, compared to the start of the season, says we’re going in the right direction.”
However, with just two goals scored in those games, he tellingly added: “The final piece of the jigsaw is to put the ball in the net.”
The Cottagers must now recover from a coronavirus outbreak which forced Wednesday’s trip to Tottenham to be called off and that may make them vulnerable versus a physical outfit like Burnley.
Let’s add 17/4 for Draw HT/Burnley FT to our Burnley vs Fulham betting tips.
Last Fulham line-up: Areola, Andersen, Adarabioyo, Robinson, Ola Aina, Loftus-Cheek, Reed, Zambo, Decordova-Reid, Cavaleiro, Lookman.
