Struggling Burnley host Tottenham at Turf Moor tonight (26/10/20), and for my football betting prediction, I’m expecting another 3 points for Spurs.
Burnley V Tottenham Tips 26/10/20
It’s getting very difficult to predict football results at the moment, the Premier League is all over the place, and there is fairly little consistency to speak off.
Two things that have been consistent this season though, is poor Burnley form, and decent away form from Spurs.
All this points to an away win, but it still wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see the Clarets take something from this match.

Burnley V Tottenham Odds
On current form, 8/15 on Spurs might look about right, but I’d still be reluctant to back Jose’s men at that price.
As bad as Burnley have been this season, Sean Dyche’s men do have plenty of Premier League experience, and Turf Moor isn’t an easy place to visit and come away with 3 points from.
While Spurs have a great home record against Burnley, their away records isn’t as good.
Last season seen the sides draw 1-1, while in 2018, Burnley won 2-1. Tottenham’s last win at Turf Moor was back in December 2017, when a Harry Kane hat-trick seen Spurs win 3-0.
Burnley have had a poor start to the season
The Clarets have had a pretty poor start to the season. They have just 1 point from their opening four matches. Sean Dyche’s men have a game in hand over the majority of sides at the bottom.
So far Burnley’s only point came in the 0-0 draw at West Brom last week. A match I’m sure Sean Dyche would have pencilled in as a possible 3 points.
Burnley’s three defeats have come at the hands of Leicester (4-2), Southampton (1-0), and Newcastle (3-1).
That’s not exactly the elite sides of the Premier League.
Spurs are better on the road
It’s been a funny season for Jose’s Tottenham side. They have 8 points from five matches, but in truth it should be 12.
At home has been the problem for Spurs. The 1-0 defeat to Everton on the opening weekend could have been put down to rustiness.
Since then they have draw 1-1 with Newcastle, and 3-3 with West Ham – both matches they should have easily won.
On the road it’s been sensational stuff. First a 5-2 win away at Southampton, followed by a 6-1 win over Man Utd.
Burnley V Tottenham Prediction 26/10/20
Odds of 8/15 on a Spurs win a little bit too short to me, and although I can only predict a Tottenham win, I can’t tip that.
If you combine a Spurs win with over 1.5 goals on a Betfair Same Game Multi, the odds increase to 1.7, which is much better value.
I can see Spurs winning 2-0, or 2-1, so this bet covers that. A Spurs 1-0 win is the only result that sees this bet lose, as long as Spurs win!
An alternative bet to this would be Spurs at -1 on the Handicap, this pays 11/8. This bet would see you profit better, but Spurs would need to win 2-0, or 3-1 etc.
Spurs and over 1.5 goals at 1.7 would see you win if Spurs win 2-1, while that would lose on the -1 Handicap bet.
