English Premier League fans have 8 matches to look forward to over the first 4 days of the week and we start with Monday night’s action where Crystal Palace host Burnley.
This is a mid-table clash if there ever there was one with Palace currently sitting in 10th position, level on points with 11th placed Burnley.
Palace were on a 4 match unbeaten run heading into their trip to Anfield and to play Liverpool, but they were swept aside 4-0 by the Champions. Their last 2 home games have been 1-0 wins over Watford and Newcastle and they have won 6, drawn 4 and lost 5 of 15 home matches.
Digging deeper into the goal stats, Crystal Palace’s home matches have been the lowest scoring of the English Premier League, averaging just 1.7 goals each and if you were betting on under 2.5 goals in each of their matches you would have collected in 13 of the 15 games.
Burnley broke a 3 match unbeaten run when they beat Watford 1-0 at home on Thursday night and prior to that they were swept aside 5-0 away by Manchester City. They have won 4, drawn 4 and lost 7 of their away matches this season and Burnley away games have averaged 2.7 goals each, with 9 of the 15 matches delivering for over 2.5 goal backers.
Crystal Palace were too good for Burnley on the road in the reverse fixture winning 2-0 back in November and that was the 4th successive victory for Palace over Burnley in the league.

Crystal Palace 27/20
Suggested Bet: Crystal Palace win at 27/20
Looking at Palace’s recent home form and their head-to-head home record against Burnley backing the home win seems the obvious choice. I also looked at the under 2.5 goal market due to Palace home games being so low scoring, but the bookmakers are onto this one with under 2.5 goals trading at 5/10. A common score line in recent Palace home matches is 1-0 and if you are looking at the correct score market that is on offer at 19/4.
