Burnley will look to achieve mathematical safety when they take on Manchester City at the Turf Moor this weekend. The Clarets have achieved the magical 40-point mark and they hold a nine-point advantage over the bottom three. Burnley will be confirmed of a place in the Premier League next season even if they just match Cardiff’s results. Manchester City are back at the top of the table with destiny in their own hands with regards to the title. Follow all our predictions, free bets, and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Burnley are now unbeaten in four league matches after grabbing a 2-2 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The Clarets were too defensive in the game and it was a sharp contrast to their tactics during the run of three successive wins prior to this result.
Manchester City were able to gain a huge advantage in the Premier League title race after a 2-0 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford. City have just been able to claim 11 successive wins on the trot to open a two-point advantage over Liverpool.
Manchester City were able to thrash Burnley 5-0 in the recent meeting between the two teams Etihad Stadium. Surprisingly, City dropped points in the recent visit to Turf Moor after only managing a 1-1 draw. Our betting tips and predictions would pick a win for Manchester City.

City can expect a defensive approach from Burnley once again. Guardiola’s last visit to Turf Moor saw his team manage 71% possession and still come out with a draw. Even though Burnley are almost close to safety, Sean Dyche will make sure that his team’s momentum extends further. Unlike in that 1-1 draw, City have a strong need to win and keep the destiny in their own hands. After having put in a stellar performance in recent weeks, our preview expects City to find the breakthrough.

Correct Score odds
Manchester City have come up with an average of over three goals in the last six meetings against Burnley, but the only occasion in which they scored under 1.5 goals was at Turf Moor. Burnley will once again try to make it difficult for City by loading up box and also being physical up front. Yet, City’s perseverance and search for a league title can see the team through. An early goal may not arrive with City scoring more in the second half over the last six games. Our correct score prediction would pick a Manchester City 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
A remarkable five out of the recent six encounters between the two teams have produced over 2.5 goals. The recent trend indicates a higher probability of a late goal. Even in such an instance, City can end up with a couple of goals, but they may be troubled at the other end with the physical approach. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Aguero remains the top scorer at City with 19 goals, but he has not scored away from home in April. Bernardo Silva, meanwhile, has come up with the opening goal for City in three out of the last five away matches. Silva was also able to score in both games against Burnley this season. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Bernardo Silva.
