Burnley vs Stoke 12 December 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

Burnley will be at home this week as they take on Stoke City in the English Premier League. This is a big game for both sides since they will both enter it will the hope of leaving with all three points in the bag.
Stoke City have been very poor this season and after a big loss at Tottenham over the weekend, things are not looking good for this team. An away win here is needed since the side is very low on points and if they continue this way, they will be in a relegation battle in a few months time. The Potters will be without Jese who has gone home for family reasons but there should be enough in the attacking ranks to allow them to score goals at Burnley.

Burnley has been really good this season and they showed that again last weekend as they beat Watford at home. This team has made their home ground a fortress and have beaten almost every team at it. I don’t see a reason why that will stop this week against Stoke City and as a result I am going to predict a home win here.

With all that in mind, I am going to predict that Burnley wins this game with ease and betting on the home side seems to be the best option at the moment. We are getting a good price on them and it seems like a very likely result so there is no reason not to make this bet. In addition to that, I also like the under 2.5 goals. Burnley play a defensive style which has worked for them all season meaning I see this as a 1-0 win so the under gets there.
