Burnley v Brentford: Predictions, Tips and Odds

Brentford will be looking to extend the gap between themselves and the bottom three when they face Burnley at Turf Moor in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Clarets find themselves 10 points adrift of 17th-placed Nottingham Forest and, with just 10 games of the campaign remaining, time is running out for the Lancashire outfit to avoid the drop.

Brentford are also embroiled in this relegation scrap, as they sit five points clear of the bottom three, and this looks like the perfect opportunity to improve on their dismal away record.

Burnley v Brentford betting tips and predictions

Brentford to win @ 23/20

Having blitzed their way to the Championship title last season, Burnley have found life much tougher in the top-flight, with just three wins recorded from 28 league matches.

The Clarets gave up a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 at West Ham United last time out, a result that extended their run without a win in all competitions to 11 games and left them 10 points from safety.

It looks like a tall order for Vincent Kompany's side to avoid the drop and another nail could be put into their coffin on Saturday at the hands of Brentford, who have had a tough run of fixtures.

Thomas Frank's troops have faced Tottenham, Manchester City (twice), Wolves, Liverpool, West Ham, Chelsea and Arsenal over their last eight games, so it's perhaps no surprise to see them having collected just four points during that period.

The Bees have struggled on the road, losing a joint league-high 10 times, but they should have enough quality in their ranks to complete the double over Burnley, who lost October's reverse fixture 3-0.

Kompany's side have the worst home record in the division, taking just five points, and Brentford are unlikely to pass up a great opportunity to put some breathing space between themselves and the relegation zone.

Over 2.5 goals @ 3/4

Although Brentford are on a five-game winless streak, they have looked dangerous in those encounters, scoring six times and only failing to breach Man City's defence during that run.

But the Bees have had their defensive issues this season, conceding 52 times and managing just one clean sheet in their last 20 fixtures in all competitions.

The Clarets' problems at the back have been clear to see, as their tally of 62 goals conceded is only bettered by rock-bottom Sheffield United (74), while they have let in two or more goals in each of their last seven outings.

Burnley's defence has been breached 34 times at Turf Moor, with only the Blades having a worse record at home, and over 2.5 goals has landed in two of their last three assignments in Lancashire.

Over 2.5 goals has also landed in 10 of Brentford's last 12 league matches, and this can come in again on Saturday.

Yoane Wissa to score anytime @ 21/10

Brentford have had to deal with attacking injuries this season but the return to fitness of Yoane Wissa last month has provided a much-needed boost in the final third.

The DR Congo international has scored in his last three games, netting against West Ham, Chelsea and Arsenal, and his impressive form could help keep the Bees in the Premier League.

Wissa also grabbed the opener in October's reverse fixture, setting his side on the way to a 3-0 victory, and he is hard to ignore in the anytime scorer market for this Turf Moor encounter.
