Burnley faces Chelsea on Saturday, October 31st at Turf Moor for an English Premier League match.
Burnley is coming off a 1-0 loss to Tottenham in its last Premier League match on October 26th. Burnley is one of four clubs in the Premier League that does not have a win so far this season. Burnley has one draw and four losses through its first five matches this season, which puts the team in 18th place in the Premier League standings. Last season, Burnley was known for its exceptional defense and stellar goaltending performances by Nick Pope, but this season has been a bit different. Burnley has allowed nine goals through five matches this season, and Burnley has only scored 3 total goals so far as well -- good for a -6 goal differential. Burnley will now have the difficult task of taking on a strong Chelsea club.
Chelsea is coming off a 4-0 victory over Krasnodar in UEFA Champions League competition on October 28th. Chelsea drew 0-0 to Manchester United on October 24th in its last Premier League match. Chelsea is now 2-3-1 on the year and sits in 10th place in the Premier League table. Chelsea is unbeaten in its last eight matches in all competitions, as the club has caught fire as of late. Chelsea has scored 13 goals and has conceded 9 to its opposition, therefore the club has a +4 goal differential. Chelsea will look to grab a much-needed three points against a feasible opponent on the road.
The last time Burnley and Chelsea met was on January 11th of 2020. In that match, Chelsea took down Burnley by the final score of 3-0 at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea has beaten Burnley in four of the last five meetings between the two clubs.
Chelsea opens as sizable favorites on the road with a -195 money line price. Chelsea should not have too many issues in this game, as Burnley has not put up much of a fight this season. I see Chelsea scoring at least two goals, and that should be enough to cover the spread here.
