Fulham will be eyeing their first points of the Premier League season when they host Burnley at Craven Cottage this weekend. The Cottagers have witnessed a tough re-introduction to top-flight football with back-to-back defeats and they are presently rooted to the drop zone with zero points. Burnley have opened their tally with a point but their European endeavours have certainly hampered their performances. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Fulham succumbed to their second straight league defeat last weekend after they were beaten 3-1 by Tottenham Hotspur. Aleksandar Mitrovic netted the sole consolation goal for the West London side.
Burnley produced their second winless game of the campaign as they suffered a 3-1 defeat to Watford. In midweek, they succumbed to a 3-1 defeat to Olympiakos in the Europa League play-off first leg.
Fulham’s previous meeting versus Burnley was at their home ground in March 2016 whereby the visitors won by a 3-2 scoreline with Sam Vokes getting a brace. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a draw.

Burnley are priced at 4.33 to secure their first win of the season and we are not predicting this result. The Clarets have looked vulnerable defensively this term and this may have partly come about from their European exertions. As such, Fulham should have the home advantage and added fitness by their side to attain three points. Our preview expects a Fulham win.

Fulham vs Burnley draw odds: 3.30
Burnley win odds: 4.33
Correct Score odds
Fulham have had a tough return to the top tier and they have shipped five goals from just two matches. Elsewhere, Burnley have also looked vulnerable defensively with four goals allowed. Based on this, both teams may seek to improve on their solidity, though Fulham should fancy a victory – with Burnley coming off a tough Europa League tie against Olympiakos where they played with 10 men for the final 30 minutes. Our correct score prediction expects a Fulham 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The games between Burnley and Fulham have remained open-sided and the last three meetings have resulted in at least three goals. We are expecting another game of the same scale with both sides yet to keep a clean sheet with an average of two goals conceded. Our total goals prediction would back more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Aleksandar Mitrovic was the pick of the Fulham scorers during the backend of the Championship and this earned him a permanent move to Craven Cottage. The Serbian has already found the scoresheet this term with a strike against Spurs and he should be the main man for the Cottagers once more. Mitrovic will be facing Burnley for the first time this weekend. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Mitrovic.
