Derek McInnes' Dons were runners-up in the Scottish Premiership last term and they will relish the opportunity to test themselves against a team from the top tier of English football.
It is the Clarets, though, who are chalked up as dabblebet's 4/5 (1.80) favourites to come out on top in Thursday's first leg tie.
Dyche is still to add to his squad this summer and so Burnley's line-up is likely to have a familiar feel from the team that took the Clarets into this competition by securing a seventh-place finish in the Premier League last term.
Aberdeen lost striker Adam Rooney to Salford City last week and former Carlisle United striker Sam Cosgrove could be charged with leading the line for the hosts on this occasion.
Goals hard to come by?
Burnley scored 36 and conceded 39 goals in their 38 Premier League matches last term and Dyche's team may well want to keep things tight on Thursday.
The Dons have endured a difficult summer with a number of key men from last season including Rooney, Kari Arnason, Kenny McLean, Greg Stewart and Ryan Christie all leaving the club.
Burnley’s settled squad, therefore, may be better prepared for Thursday's tussle and, therefore, dabblebet's 4/5 (1.80) quote for the visitors to bag a vital victory could represent decent value for punters.
