Burnley v Leicester – 14.04.2018 – Betting Tip
The Premier League is entering its final stages with only 6 rounds to go and two teams that have been steadily following the big six of English football throughout the season will be meeting at Burnley’s Turf Moor. The Clarets have been on an absolute rampage lately with four consecutive wins, the last three being in away matches and they will be hosting Leicester at the best possible moment as their confidence has not been higher all season.
The Foxes on the other hand have been playing in mixed form and will be coming into the match on the tail of a home defeat to Newcastle. The game will pit two rivals of similar quality so predicting the outcome may be quite difficult. To help you with that we have prepared some betting tips and sports betting strategies that you can use to get the best of the bookies. Keep reading to find out what Burnley v Leicester tips our experts have for you.
The Clarets currently sit in 7th place in the Premiership, six points clear of their next rival, which is Leicester itself. Burnley have been just under the Europe League line for months now, having played a very solid season throughout but they haven’t had the luck or the quality to overtake Arsenal in 6th and find themselves a European competition spot for next season.
Dyche Shaun’s men have won four consecutive matches and are currently on the best streak they have had all season, having defeated Watford, WBA and West Ham in away games in their last three games. The Clarets didn’t even allow Manchester City to take all three points from Turf Moor, so it would appear that Leicester will really have their hands full if they are to defeat Burnley on their pitch.
Burnley’s biggest strength this season has been their defense, as only three teams in the league have conceded fewer goals than them. With only 28 conceded goals in 32 games, Burnley stand as one of the strongest defenses in Europe this season.
With 43 points from 32 games, Foxes sit in a respectable 8th position on the table and are looking to keep a solid form for the six remaining games and stay in the top half of the table. Their recent form has been quite mixed and a home defeat to Newcastle will surely not sit well with the fans who were hoping that they could keep up with Burnley and possibly draw even in points this coming Saturday.
While they have scored plenty more goals than Burnley this season, they also conceded a lot more, with a 48:45 goal difference. Leicester’s defensive line is probably their biggest weakness in fact as they have constantly been unable to keep their net empty, even against teams that realistically aren’t offensively powerful.
Leicester will be looking to put pressure on Burnley with their strong attack but given how good the hosts have been defensively recently, scoring will not be easy for Vardy, Mahrez and other Foxes.

Head to Head and Stats
Looking back at their previous encounters, Leicester has been the better side, especially in recent years, as Burnley have only been able to take three points once in the last eight years, which happened in January last year.
Leicester have even won on four of their last five visits to Turf Moor so they will have that going for them. However, Burnley has not been as strong as this season for a very long time and we can’t put too much confidence into these past results.
The first encounter of the two teams this season ended with Leicester winning by 1:0 at King Power as Gray scored the single early goal back in December.
Our Tips and Predictions
After reviewing all the available data, our betting experts have decided on their Burnley v Leicester betting tips. Given the defensive quality of Burnley and the fact that their last two matches ended with 1:0 each, betting on under 2.5 goals which the top betting sites in Nigeria are offering at 1.60 is definitely a good idea.
Given Burnley’s recent results and their current form, we definitely don’t expect them to lose this time around either, but Leicester will surely fight back strongly and a draw offered at 3.20 is another bet that will have plenty of value and which we would suggest you make if you are looking to win some money on this match.
