Betting Tip: Burnley to win
It’s getting to last chance saloon for Fulham who are currently nine points adrift of their opponents here, Burnley.
It’s basically win or bust for the Cottagers, so a draw will not suffice. However, can you justify 5/4 quotes on a home side who have won just twice at base all season, wins that came against the only two teams below them in the table? No chance.
Burnley have been much better away from home of late, strangely. They’ve won at Everton, Wolves, Liverpool and Palace in their last eight so you’d have to fancy them at Fulham. Some might look at them on the handicap given their bulbous price, but with the draw not helping the hosts, the Clarets should get chances. 5/2 quotes on the visitors are simply too big to ignore.
Betting Tip: Ashley Westwood to be carded
I’ll take a stab on Ashley Westwood to pick up a card at 9/2 as well. David Coote is the referee here and he’s one of the more card happy operators. Westwood has collected 6 cards this season, the joint-most for the Lancashire club. Given the 4-4-2 formation adopted by Sean Dyche, Westwood has to cover quite a bit of ground and with the good dribblers in the Fulham side, he could get caught out.
Fulham vs Burnley Odds
A battle between 17th and 18th in the table, expect Burnley to come out of the gates fast. A win here would secure their future in the premier league for another season with best odds of 5/2.
