Two out of form teams meet this Saturday when Burnley welcome West Ham United to Turf Moor.
Four defeats in six games in all competitions for West Ham. Three defeats on the trot for Burnley. As you can see, we’re in for a cracker this Saturday!
While this does not shape up to be an instant classic, the outcome is no doubt vital for both teams. Both sides are desperate to shrug off latest results and both are keen to move up the table and continue to build that gap between themselves and the drop zone.
One of the main priorities for both of these teams will no doubt be defence. Burnley have conceded nine goals in three of their last Premier League games. Three of those came in a hugely disappointing 3-0 defeat at Brammal Lane to Sheffield United.
West Ham haven’t fared much better. A total of 14 goals conceded in their last six games across all competitions doesn’t sound too promising.
Nevertheless, from a betting perspective, this could open up opportunities. Outright odds aren’t too bad for this game and we certainly wouldn’t put anybody off backing either one of these teams at their current price.
However, with both teams recently involved in high scoring games, the over 3.5 goals market is our recommendation at 2/1.
