Burnley vs Man City Betting Tips
The best football betting sites are giving Burnley a slight chance by making them 7/1. We regularly saw City’s opponents at longer odds of 7/1 last season. But that doesn't necessarily mean the Clarets have any better chance of defeating the champions.
Where Vincent Kompany's team does have a chance, is playing City before they've got into their stride. The Cityzens were not at their free flowing best against Arsenal in the Community Shield last Sunday, so Kompany will know this is a good time to be facing the champions.
This doesn't mean they can win though.
So with City at just 3/10, we're looking elsewhere in our football betting tips for this match. Picking Burnley to win isn't an option either.
Instead we're looking at goals. This match has the feel of 3-1 about it, or if Burnley can pull off a shock, maybe 2-2. There is also a good chance Erling Haaland will pick up where he left off last season, and start the campaign with a goal.
So we’re going for a Bet Builder that pays 2/1. Combine Erling Haaland to score anytime, with over 3.5 goals.
