Burnley vs Southampton 24 February 2018: EPL Soccer Preview and Predictions

Burnley are a team that have had a really good season. The Clarets have managed to get big wins while also consistently getting points throughout the campaign. This weekend they take on Southampton at home in a game where both sides will feel that they can win.

Southampton have had a very poor season. This was a side that expected to be challenging for the top 8 but instead is in a relegation battle. The Saints need to turn things around quickly since they are not safe from relegation. Playing away from home against Burnley has not been an easy task this season and that is something that the Saints will need to deal with if they want to leave Burnley with a result.

For Burnley, this is another chance for the team to push themselves further up the ladder. This team is well balanced but they are heavily reliant on the home crowd to get the team over the line. This has happened many times this season and they will hope that it can happen again this weekend. If form is anything to go by, I think Burnley are the team with the better chance of winning.

Taking all that into consideration, we are going to go for a home win. As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a good price on betting on Burnley to win so that is a wager which is worth making. In addition to that, I am also a fan of the under 2.5 goals. Burnley plays a very tight and disciplined game and I don’t see this game having many goals. The under 2.5 goals is quite a safe bet so any wager size is understandable.
