PRICE BOOSTS MAX BET £10
Sean Dyche’s side are safe for at least another season in the top flight having gone on a run of just five defeats from 14 matches to ensure they play a sixth consecutive season in the Premier League.
That form has been largely down to the attacking prowess of Chris Wood, who, since the beginning of March, has the equal most goals and assists in the league along with Kelechi Iheanacho, and if the Clarets were to get something out of this game you can bet he’ll be instrumental in doing so.
Aside from league position, this game is largely academic, but Leeds haven’t had much to play for for a while now and that has only had a positive impact on their results.
Indeed, it’s almost telling of Leeds’ inconsistent season that over their last five outings, they’ve faced Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Spurs and Brighton, with the latter the only game they managed to lose in that run, though a streak of W4-D3-L1 from their last eight shows what this side are capable of as Marcelo Bielsa plans to push on from what has been a positive first season back in the Premier League for the Whites.
Leeds To Win And Both Teams To Score
While a lot has been said of Leeds’ high scoring games, that had largely taken a turn before their 3-1 win over Spurs at the weekend, with the previous 11 matches all seeing under 3.5 goals land, and though with the attacking talent on display and both sides keeping just two clean sheets in their last 10 games, we wouldn’t be overly convinced with an unders bet.
That would leave the both teams to score market a good proposition, though at such a short price it’s either worth avoiding or coupling with a different market in order to generate some value.
While Leeds have been inconsistent, they’ve still won 10 of their 13 matches against the current bottom eight sides in the table and if they, though they have still conceded in eight of those matches as defensive resolve remains one of the key issues Bielsa will need to address heading into the 2021/22 campaign.
Meanwhile, despite Burnley’s form in recent months being enough to keep them at arm’s length of the relegation zone, they’ve still lost four of their last six matches, including defeats against Newcastle and Southampton so it’s not as though they are getting turned over by the ‘big six’.
However, they’ve still managed to at least find the net in all four of those defeats, as they have done in each of their last nine outings, so the away win with both teams finding the net provides immense value for us here.
