Turf Moor Turf Moor, Burnley, England
Under 2.5 Goals (-108)
Burnley are coming off a couple of big wins in the FA Cup and the EPL and they will look to make it three in a row. They will play host to Aston Villa on Wednesday, who put an end to their win-less streak with a nice win over Newcastle last week.
Burnley (5-9-4) are coming off a nice 3-0 away win against Fulham in the FA Cup and moved to the next round. Last week they pulled a massive upset when they beat Liverpool by 1-0 on the road. Burnley have now lost just two of their last six in all competitions (3-2-1). They are sitting at the 15th spot of the Premier League with 19 points and a safe, seven-point distance above the red line. They have been mediocre at home so far (3-4-1), scoring just 5 and conceding just 8 goals.
Aston Villa (9-6-2) did a great job at home against Newcastle last week, beating them by an easy 0-2. They really needed a positive result after losing their previous three matches. Aston Villa are now sitting at the 8th spot of the league table with 29 points, scoring 31 and conceding 18 goals in the process. They are just four points behind the top-five spots. They have a 5-3-1 record on the road, scoring 14 and conceding 7 goals.
Free Soccer Pick:
The two teams split the points in a goal-less draw in the reverse fixture in mid-December. Last season Aston Villa won in this venue by 2-1 after a 2-2 draw at home. The hosting team has not won in any of the last six matches between the two sides. I am tempted by the Under 2.5 Goals here.
