West Brom v Burnley: Baggies to build on cup heroics with win

| 25.09.2014

A total of one goal in five Premier League games makes tough reading for Burnley fans as they travel to a resurgent West Brom outfit, fresh from a scrapbook-win at White Hart Lane and a rousing Capital One Cup comeback victory over Hull.

As a result, Sunday’s only top-flight fixture sees the Baggies installed as 1/1 favourites, parity is placed at 12/5, while a first three points of the season for the Clarets is a 3/1 chance.

It’s our duty however, to offer some real betting insight on the televised clash:

West Brom to beat Burnley @ 1/1

What a difference a week can make in football, or in the Baggies’ case, four days.

That impressive 1-0 win at Tottenham shed new light on Alan Irvine’s squad’s capabilities, while coming back from 2-1 down in the cup to score twice in the last three minutes to see off the Tigers, showed greatly encouraging spirit.

Burnley’s lack of viable replacements for top-scoring duo of last season Sam Vokes and Danny Ings looks likely to see them stumble to a third league loss.

First-half result: Draw @ 20/21

Three 0-0 draws on the bounce would clearly have seen this bet land in recent clashes involving the Clarets.

Dyche’s side are nothing if not resolute and it could be a case of patience for the charged-up hosts to reap an invaluable three-point haul.

Saido Berahino to score anytime @ 2/1

West Brom’s young striker has been touted for big things since breaking onto the first-team scene last season and he’s starting to realise some potential at the Hawthorns.

The hero against Hull with his 88th-minute winner, Berahino looks good value to add to his seasonal tally of three.
