Burnley vs Huddersfield prediction and top betting tips

These two sides sit at different ends of the Championship table right now. As such, you'd expect Burnley to run out winners but football doesn't necessarily work like that. Can Neil Warnock's Huddersfield spring a surprise to aid their great escape or will Burnley take another step towards the title? Find out with our Burnley vs Huddersfield match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Burnley vs Huddersfield Prediction 1: Burnley win to nil

The obvious prediction for this game is one that backs Burnley to win the game, however, the odds on offer for such a prediction are far from appealing. In order to make that more interesting we've opted for a Burnley win to nil prediction instead. Burnley have been the best side in the league by some distance and have won two of their last four games to nil. Huddersfield meanwhile have lost two of their last three games without scoring. On top of that, Burnley beat Huddersfield to in the reverse fixture earlier this season.

Burnley vs Huddersfield Prediction 2: Both teams will score

Our next tip for this game comes from the total goals market and we are opting for an under 2.5 goal prediction. Burnley have gone under that marker in each of their last three games. Huddersfield's games have been slightly more high scoring with just two of their last five going under the 2.5 mark but given the recent appointment of Neil Warnock they are likely to be a tough but to crack in this match up. That factor and the fact three of the last five head to head games have gone under 2.5 goals makes us think we have a low scoring encounter on our hands.

So, that gives you some insight to how the different bookmakers see the action unfolding. How though do the Burnley vs Huddersfield odds translate into probabilities ahead of this game? Let's find out.

Burnley odds: 3/7 (1.43) – 70%

Draw odds: 7/2 (4.50) – 22%

Huddersfield odds: 13/2 (7.50) – 13%

The above will tell you that Burnley are heavy favourites to get the win in this game and, despite the attractive odds on Huddersfield, it's fair to say most punters will see that as throwing money away. The only factor that might play into the minds of some bettors is the Neil Warnock factor – does the draw become attractive from a value perspective given how stubborn his sides can be? We say no, but there will be a few out there who are tempted.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Burnley vs Huddersfield

Burnley

Burnley remain very good value to win the league but they will be annoyed at having lost two points late on last time out. Thankfully for Vincent Kompany though, he has plenty of squad depth that allows him to freshen his side up both from a physical and mental standpoint. Defensively, the Clarets are likely to remain pretty consistent but some front end rotation should be expected with Nathan Tella almost guaranteed to come into the picture.

Predicted lineup – Muric, Maatsen, Al Dakhil, Ekdal, Roberts, Cullen, Cork, Tella, Barnes, Obafemi, Vitinho

Huddersfield

Neil Warnock is a boss cut from a different cloth to most modern day managers and he'll understand the key to his team escaping trouble will be good relationships and momentum. With that firmly in mind, we can't see him making too many changes to the side that beat Birmingham last time out – albeit they might look to sit a little tighter given the strength Burnley boast in forward areas.

Predicted lineup – Bilokapic, Lees, Helik, Lowton, Headley, Camara, Hogg, Rudoni, Kasumu, Hungbo, Ward

Player to watch

Burnley had a real revamp in the summer as they looked to transform their style of play to suit Kompany's vision. One player that didn't move on was Ashley Barnes. He remains just as key now as he always has done for Burnley. With two goals in his last two games, it's likely he'll play a big role here too.
