Burnley v Sunderland tips – another draw on the cards
The Clarets are keeping things tight in the Premier League
September 17th, 2014
Burnley are not necessarily going to be the whipping boys of the top flight this season, despite Sean Dyche having a minute transfer budget compared to the nineteen other clubs in the top flight.
This Clarets team is reminiscent of Blackpool under Ian Holloway and Burnley could be sitting on four points from four games if Scott Arfield had converted a late penalty at Selhurst Park.
Even so, Dyche will be encouraged by the consecutive clean sheets kept against Manchester United and Crystal Palace, even if just one goal has been scored in the team’s first quartet of matches.
Burnley are a 6/4 chance to record their first victory of the season against a Sunderland side who are also winless following last weekend’s 2-2 draw against Tottenham.
The Black Cats twice came from behind to land a point which means that they have three points on the board, with games against West Brom and Manchester United ending all square.
Gus Poyet’s side are as big as 2/1 to claim victory at Turf Moor and there is a case to be made for the Wearside team considering they face a team who are shot-shy and likely to be safety first on Saturday.
The draw is trading at 12/5 and we must once again look at the possibility of No Goalscorer in this match, with Sky Bet having odds of 7/1 that both teams draw blanks, although Dyche will hope that Danny Ings is on the pitch should a penalty be awarded.
Most neutrals would like to see a Burnley win and Paddy Power go 13/2 about a 1-0 victory in their favour, with Under 1.5 Goals a very attractive proposition at 19/10.
Under 1.5 @ 19/10
No Goalscorer @ 6/1
