Burnley once again look to end a rotten run of form and they host Wolves at the Turf Moor this weekend. The Clarets have slipped back into a relegation battle over the last few weeks and they are just two points above Cardiff, who have played a game less, coming into this match. Meanwhile, Wolves continue to have the Europa League in their sights while they have also booked their place in the semi-finals of the FA Cup. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Burnley lost for a fourth consecutive league match after a 2-1 defeat against Leicester City. This defeat came about even when Burnley were up against the 10 men of Leicester for almost the entire 90 minutes.
Wolves were able to create history by reaching the semifinals of the FA Cup after a 2-1 success over Manchester United. This result came just a week after the 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
The reverse fixture witnessed a 1-0 win for Wolves at the Molineux Stadium with Raúl Jiménez scoring the only goal of the game. Wolves’ last visit to the Turf Moor produced a 1-1 draw back in 2016. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Wolves.

Burnley have gone through periods of disappointment quite frequently this season and confidence has played a major role in the club remaining outside the bottom three so far this season. However, there will be a lot of nervousness at Turf Moor ahead of this match and it will be hard to dispel. Wolves will have one eye on the Wembley date against Manchester City, but the team has been doing extremely well in the last few weeks. Our preview would back Wolves to beat Burnley in an away match for the first time since 2010.

Wolves vs Burnley draw odds: 3.20
Burnley win odds: 3.10
Correct Score odds
Wolves have been playing some brilliant football over the last few months and they have been able to sustain a challenge for the Europa League places as a result. Burnley have been defensively poor and they have allowed opposition with a lot of space to operate. Wolves would relish such a position but they are also struggling for clean sheets. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Wolves.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There has been just one example of a high-scoring game whenever these two teams have met in the last five meetings, but this match should see goals at both ends. Wolves are pushing for Europe and the momentum of the team may be difficult to stop at this moment. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Raúl Jiménez has been a stellar player for Wolves this season. He has been able to come up with 12 league goals – the only Wolves player to achieve this distinction in this 2018-19 campaign – and was responsible for the only goal in the reverse fixture. The 27-year-old has been unable to score in just one out of the last six matches. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Raúl Jiménez.
