Burnley betting preview with Betway

Burnley betting preview

During his playing days, Slaven Bilic was a fighter. A win at all costs gritty defender who wasn’t afraid of the fight. It’s this same spirit that he’ll need to summon for Wednesday's huge game against Burnley.

Momentum is a powerful force in football, especially during the festive period where games come thick and fast. A couple of wins in a row would go a long way to reminding the Hammers of what they’re capable of.

West Ham have a good record against Burnley. The two sides have met 12 times this century, with seven wins for the Irons and only two defeats.

A home victory at London Stadium is 8/13, with a Burnley win at 9/2 and the draw at 3/1.

Burnley weren’t in the Premier League last year, but two seasons ago when the teams met, it was the London club who emerged triumphant on both occasions.

The Hammers strolled to a 3-1 victory at Turf Moor and grabbed a 1-0 win at the Boleyn. You can back West Ham to win 1-0 tonight at 6/1, or to match their 3-1 result at 11/1.

It was Mark Noble who scored a penalty in the last meeting between the sides. A captain’s performance could be key to securing the three points.

The Englishman is 5/1 to score at any time – be it a penalty or otherwise.

West Ham to keep a clean sheet is 11/8 while a win to nil is 7/4.

Interestingly, Burnley have conceded at least twice in over half of their league games this season, so this could be a good opportunity to back plenty of goals at the London Stadium.

You can get 7/4 on more than 3.5 goals being scored, with both teams to score at odds of 3/4.

But patience might be important when waiting for that first goal. In the Premier League this season, the Hammers have – more often than not – been more deadly after the half-time whistle.

They’ve scored around twice as many goals in the second half of matches as the first half, and you’ll find odds of 11/5 for the Irons to score their first goal in the second half.
