Burnley will look to ensure the Premier League survival when they take on Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium this weekend. Bournemouth are in a comfortable spot with only two points to the 40-point mark. However, the club may have lost grip of the top 10 race after falling five points behind Everton. Meanwhile, Burnley gained a huge step towards safety after opening up a five-point advantage over Cardiff and the relegation zone. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Bournemouth had more of their disappointing form on display at the King Power Stadium with the team losing 2-0 against Leicester. The result leaves Bournemouth with one win in the last eight league encounters.
Burnley were able to go very close towards safety after a 2-0 success over Wolves at the Turf Moor. After a string of four defeats, this was a crucial victory for Sean Dyche’s men.
The reverse encounter between Burnley and Bournemouth ended up producing a 4-0 victory for the former at Turf Moor. This was the biggest win of the season for the Clarets, who ended up picking up a 2-1 victory in their latest visit to the Vitality Stadium. Our betting tips and predictions for this match would opt for a draw.

Burnley have been able to put up a sizeable advantage over the bottom three following the latest victory over Wolves, but the team do remain very mediocre when it comes to away games. There have been just three wins for Burnley in the last 16 encounters away from home. Bournemouth are starting to put together a run of form typically associated with relegation-threatened outfits, but it would not be surprising to see the poor form continue with the Cherries almost safe from relegation. Our preview would pick a draw.

Bournemouth win odds: 2.05
Burnley win odds: 3.40
Correct Score odds
There have been over 10 goals conceded by both teams in the last six matches. Burnley do defend in great numbers but they are culpable of letting the opposition take too many shots at goal. Bournemouth’s form at home has been relatively better in terms of scoring goals, and their overall defensive record this season has taken a beating largely because of away matches. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There has not been a stalemate between Burnley and Bournemouth in the last five Premier League meetings. Both teams have ended up producing entertaining contests which have witnessed over 2.5 goals in all of the meetings. However, this upcoming match could be an exception with Burnley trying to survive in the Premier League and a draw would be an excellent return for the team in an away match. Our total goals prediction would opt for under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Callum Wilson had an excellent opportunity to score and level the scores against Leicester, but his shot required a masterful save from Kasper Schmeichel. The England forward has been one of the best players for Bournemouth this season and he is also their top scorer with 11 goals – alongside Joshua King. Wilson is our pick in the first goalscorer prediction.
