Burnley - Hull City Betting Preview: Austin to continue great form

After both sides failed to win midweek, Hugh Wilson is backing both teams to score at Turf Moor and has a 2/1 value bet for this Championship clash
Only a handful of Premier League fixtures took place this weekend due to the FA Cup, so Monday night football sees two Championship sides lock horns in Lancashire.

Hull City are still right in the hunt for promotion to the Premier League, despite losing to Crystal Palace on Tuesday night. The Tigers travel to Burnley, who are without a home win in the league since mid January.

Sean Dyche’s men currently sit in 11th place in the Championship, nine points off both the playoffs and relegation zone. With only seven home wins this season, it’s no surprise the Clarets are 15/8 (2.86) with BetVictor to come out on top.

After both Watford and Palace dropped points at the weekend, Hull have the opportunity to move into second place and close the gap to leaders Cardiff City to three points.

Steve Bruce’s side have struggled away from home in recent weeks, losing their last three games, conceding nine goals in the process. BetVictor prices them at 13/8 (2.63) to take all three points this evening.

The same firm offers 12/5 (3.40) that the match ends in a draw, but Hull haven’t drawn in their last nine, so this may be a result to avoid.

Despite the Tigers recent away form, they have only failed to score five times out of 18 away games this season. Pair that with the fact Burnley have scored in 14 of their 18 home matches, and both teams to score at 4/5 (1.80) with BetVictor seems like a fantastic price and one worth backing.

For those looking at something with bigger potential returns, it’s tough to ignore Burnley’s star man Charlie Austin in the goal scorer market. After going four games without a goal, the 23-year-old has netted in his last two matches taking his season tally to 22.

Given that the Clarets have only scored 49 goals all season, there is certainly value in 2/1 (3.00) on offer from BetVictor that Austin scores the first team goal for Burnley.
