Huddersfield vs Burnley Betting Tips

January 2, 2019

Looking at Huddersfield vs Burnley Betting Tips, the two teams inside the Premier League's bottom three meet at John Smith's Stadium on Wednesday night.

 

Both sides will be desperate to start 2019 on a positive footing as they battle to avoid relegation from the top tier.

 

Burnley will surely come into this match more confident than the Terriers on the back of a vital victory against West Ham United on Sunday afternoon.


Huddersfield lost all seven of their league matches in December and will hope that the change of month brings about a change of fortunes.

 

The Terriers are bet365's 21/20 (2.05) favourites to take all three points against the Clarets.

Burnley have bagged just one point from their last six league matches away from Turf Moor. Unsurprisingly, bet365 offer a chunky 3/1 (4.0) that Sean Dyche's side kick off 2019 with a win in west Yorkshire.

 

The odds compilers offer 21/10 (3.10) that these struggling sides settle for a share of the spoils.

 

Team news
Long-term absentees, Tommy Smith, Danny Williams, Abdelhamid Sabiri and Aaron Mooy are definitely sidelined for the hosts.

 

Nick Pope, Stephen Ward and Aaron Lennon are out for the Clarets. Dyche will hope that Steven Defour and Robbie Brady are fit enough to feature. Tom Heaton, who replaced Joe Hart at the weekend, is expected to retain his place in goal.

Goals at a premium?

 

Huddersfield have scored just four home goals so far this season in the Premier League. Burnley have bagged only seven goals in 10 Premier League matches on their travels.

As such, bet365 go 8/15 (1.53) that there are fewer than three goals. The same firm offer 7/10 (1.70) that either team fails to find the net.

 

Prediction
Value, though, could lie in backing an early goal in this game. There has been a goal scored inside the opening half hour in six of Huddersfield's last seven matches at John Smith's Stadium.

 

While the bookmakers don't expect a glut of goalmouth action, the stats suggest an early breakthrough could be a little overpriced.

With so little between the sides in the standings, there should be even more intensity about this clash and the 5/6 (1.83) quote for a goal inside the opening 34 minute could represent real value for punters.
