Monday night football is back and Manchester City host Burnley in what is not surprisingly a one sided betting heat.
Manchester City returned to action on Wednesday night with a comfortable 3-0 home victory over Arsenal. The result leaves them in 2nd place, well clear of 3rd place, Leicester and at the time of writing, 22 points behind Liverpool in 1st place.
City have been superb at home this season with 10 wins and 2 draws in their 14 starts. Manchester City’s home games have averaged 3.4 goals each with 11 of the 14 games going over 2.5 goals and 5 of the 14 matches delivering over 3.5 goals
Burnley come into this game on a 7 match unbeaten run with 4 wins and 3 draws. They sit 10th on the table and basically assured of Premier League football next season.
Burnley were poor on the road last season, but this season has been a different story and they have only lost 6 of their 14 away matches with 4 wins and 4 draws and they are also undefeated in their last 3 away matches taking 7 points from a possible 9.
Burnley away games have been fairly low scoring averaging 2.5 goals each with 8 of the 14 games delivering for over 2.5 goal backers and only 2 of the 14 matches delivering for over 3.5 goal backers.
A stat that jumps out for Manchester City’s last 6 matches is that both teams to score, NO, would have collected on each occasion.
Manchester City beat Burnley 4-1 away from home earlier in the season and while they only beat Burnley 1-0 on the road last season, the home fixture finished 5-0 to Manchester City.

Manchester City 1/7
Suggested Bet: Handicap, Manchester City (-2) at 9/10
City were far too classy for Arsenal in midweek and away from home I don’t give Burnley a chance of staying with them, City to win this game by 3 goals or more is the call.
