The top two clash in the Championship on Saturday and we have free football betting tips.
The early game, live on Sky Sports sees top side Leicester travel to Burnley to try and keep hold of top spot with just three points separating the sides. Both teams are well clear of the chasing pack with Leicester 13 clear of 3rd place and Burnley 10.
Burnley have been a real surprise this season and Sean Dyche has them well organized and scoring plenty of goals. They are yet to lose a league match in 2014, an incredible sixteen match unbeaten run. Even more intimidating for Leicester is the fact the Clarets haven’t lost at Turf Moor this season and have won five in a row at home.
Leicester’s current unbeaten run isn’t bad either, a brilliant eighteen matches. They started winning at the end of December and just haven’t stopped, this includes six wins out of their last eight away but they have drawn two of their last three on the road.
With Burnley imperious at home and Leicester so good away, its hard to back either side here. The draw though looks the most likely, it will allow both sides to maintain a sizeable gap on the chasing pack and looks a good price at 12/5 with Bet365.
There were worries in the Burnley camp that they would struggle without Danny Ings but the prolific nature of his partner Sam Vokes means they haven’t missed the injured striker. Vokes now has 20 goals for the season, the same amount as Ings and has three in his last four matches. Considering the Welsh international also takes spot kicks, he is a big price at 11/2 to bag the first goal with Coral, get it on each way for a bit of security.
I was really tempted by both teams to score in this match with Leicester the league’s highest scorers and Burnley the third highest. The price isn’t brilliant though so as I fancy the draw, 1-1 looks the most likely result. Coming in at 6/1 with Wiilliam Hill it looks a good bet with the game earlier in the season ending that way.
