Betting tips Burnley vs. Leicester

Foxes to keep it in the box


Burnley have the lowest number of corners per game than any other team in the Premier League this season.

Burnley average 3.67 corners a match

The Clarets are struggling to create chances at the moment, having lost three in a row now against Newcastle (2-0), Crystal Palace (1-3) and Liverpool (4-2).

Something has to change. I predict that Sean Dyche will try and be a little more creative this match. Their style of play had become too predictable. I think they'll look to the channels, which might mean they notch up a couple more corners from clearances than usual, but not more than 5 or 6.

Leicester City

The Foxes have won two out of three under Brendan Rodgers and they'll be looking to pick up some points against a struggling Burnley. But they will be fully aware that this is never an easy fixture and the Clarets have performed well against them in recent years, especially at home, beating them 2-1 and 1-0 in their last meetings at Turf Moor.

If we exclude the Brighton match, in which Rodgers was officially named the manager but remained in the stands, we can see that the number of corners have dropped below the season's average for Leicester.

Jamie Vardy

The Leicester striker is back in form, scoring five goals in the five games. I predict he'll cause Burnley some headaches this match as well. But, if you look into the stats you'll see in matches were he has scored, or notched up a high shots tally, the number of corners won is lower. Put simply, the more clinical he is, the less corners they get.

I think Leicester will go for a direct style of play, looking for Vardy at every opportunity. I predict they'll win around 4 corners, of which 1 or 2 will be saves from the Englishman.

Betting tip

With all this in mind, I predict there will be less than 11.5 corners in the match with odds of 4/9.
