Preston vs. Burnley Betting Tips: Two Tips for Tuesday's Lancashire Derby
Preston vs Burnley Odds
It’s a Lancashire Derby to get us back into action in the Championship, as Burnley travel across the M65 to play Preston. These two sides will meet for the first time since the 2015/16 season, and with local pride at stake, there’s potential for it to be a cracker.
Preston vs Burnley Tips
It’s been an interesting start to the season for both clubs, with too many draws seeming to be the main issue that’s stopping them from moving higher in the table. Just two points separate Vincent Kompany’s side in sixth from Ryan Lowe’s North End, who sit in 10th.
Despite being in 10th, Preston have a remarkable record this season having scored just two goals in the league, but they’ve bettered that by conceding just the one! For Burnley, their fans have taken to their new manager’s more expansive style of play, and it feels like it’s just a matter of time before things truly click into place at Turf Moor.
As always, we’ve previewed the upcoming game, and picked out two tips that have caught the eye.
One of the standout players from this Burnley side and throughout the Championship this season has to be Josh Brownhill. His new role within Kompany’s side has given him more freedom to drive forward, a result which is paying dividends so far.
Four goals this season in the league, more than he’d managed during his previous two combined at the club, coming in from a team leading 18 shots, 10 of which have been on target so far. This line has cleared in two of his eight league games this campaign, with two shots landing in five of the other six.
Burnley have averaged the most possession in the Championship this year (who thought we’d ever say that) with 65.6%, and with them having plenty of the ball, expect shots to rain in at Deepdale.
Next up, we’re looking at Burnley to win the game to nil. The stats speak for themselves for this selection, with only two sides in the division having scored more goals than the Clarets. As far as Preston are concerned, only one side in England’s top four divisions having scored less than them (Gillingham with 1), with their lack of goals really holding them back so far this season.
Burnley’s free-flowing attacking football has gained a lot of plaudits this season, and despite the wholesale changes that Kompany has made to his side, there’s still a lot of Premier League quality in there, which should ultimately see them with this game to nil.
Good luck if you’re following any of these selections, and please remember to gamble responsibly.
