Burnley vs West Brom 19 August 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

Burnley had a big win on the opening day of the English Premier League as they beat the defending champions, Chelsea, in a five goal game. This week they will be at home as they take on West Brom in what should be a good game and a game that both sets of players will want to win.

West Brom won their first game of the season at home and now they will be on the road. This team relies on their defense and grinding out wins but this will not be easy away from home. Tony Pullis is a good manager and he will try to get his side into this game but that will not be easy on the road.  

Burnley was lucky that Chelsea was lacking discipline and that allowed the side to get three points in their first game. This will not always be the case but in this game, they will have the support of the home crowd. This team relies heavily on their home crowd so as a result, they need to get wins at home so this is a very important game for them. West Brom will not make it easy for them but I think they are good enough to win at home against the Toffees.

I am predicting that Burnley wins at home. We are getting a good price on this bet so I think that it is the best betting option for the game. In addition to that, this should also be a low scoring game since West Brom might park the bus so the under 2.5 goals also seems like a good option in terms of betting.
