Burnley vs Bournemouth: Top free betting tips

Burnley take on Bournemouth on Sunday, 3 March in the Premier League at Turf Moor. The home side have a mountain to climb if they are to stay in the division so it goes without saying that a win here for them would be huge. For Bournemouth, they head to Turf Moor still searching for their first Premier League win of 2024 after a poor run of form. Who will come out on top on Sunday afternoon? Check out our Burnley vs Bournemouth prediction below.

Match result prediction: Burnley to win

If Burnley could have hand-picked any opponent to face this weekend given their dire league position, then Bournemouth would have come pretty high on the list. Their start striker, Dominic Solanke is expected to miss the match through injury, and they haven't won a match in the league in over three months. Yes, Burnley's form isn't better but a home tie against an out-of-form team is what the doctor order and they must capitalise.

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 goals

Bournemouth have been involved in some very low-scoring matches in recent weeks as they have struggled to find the goalscoring form that served them well towards the end of 2023. In four of their last six matches, under 2.5 goals have been scored which makes this market appealing. Burnley have struggled to find the back of the net all season and while they have been leaky at the back, they are facing a team without their biggest goalscoring threat.

Correct score prediction: Burnley 1-0 Bournemouth

We are predicting a throwback to the Sean Dyche era at Turf Moor with Burnley scraping an ugly 1-o win over Bournemouth. Perhaps it could inspire Vincent Kompany to adopt a more rigid, defensive system for the remainder of the season and who knows, it could be the start of a great escape.

Burnley will be without Josh Brownhill for the match on Saturday after he was sent off last weekend in their 3-0 loss to Crystal Palace. Brownhill joins five players on the sidelines with Koleosho, Ramsey, Redmond, Beyer and Foster all unavailable for selection due to injuries. Jack Cork could earn a recall to the starting 11 with Brownhill banned, however, he will have to battle it out with Josh Cullen for a place in the Clarets midfield.

Trafford – Assignon, O'Shea, Esteve, Taylor – Gudmundsson, Berge, Cork, Odobert – Amdouni, Fofana

Bournemouth predicted lineup vs Burnley

Other injury absentees include Tylder Adams, Ryan Fredericks, James Hill, Max Aarons and Lloyd Kelly.

Neto – Smith, Zabarnyi, Senesi, Kerkez- Christie, Cook – Tavernier, Billing, Sinisterra – Semenyo
