I don’t like betting on Liverpool matches but I have been having a bet both teams to score when we play because our defence is so bad. It’s as bad as our attack is good and I’m not surprised we have scored as many as we’ve let in.
The league has now settled down and I’m happy with my ante-post bet on City winning the league but disappointed that Pogba is out for a spell as he looked odds on to get the 10 or more goals I bet on.
The game I am betting on this afternoon is the one between Burnley and West Ham.
BURNLEY V WEST HAM
Burnley have started great haven’t they. They seem to have sorted out the problem they had away from home last season and have already got more points on their travels than they did for all of last season.
West Ham look like they might have inherited the problem though because they haven’t done much on the road so far.
What they do have though is a great record against burnley. West Ham have won their last 5 games against the home side and that includes 4 in the Prem.
Burnley have a really settled team and have had to make only 5 changes so far this season which is the lowest of any side. West Ham do not seem to have that luxury and have had to make 16.
Looking at the goal stats for both sides I do not expect a lot of goals. The home fans have only seen 2 goals in 3 home games so far and all 4 wins at home by Burnley in 2017 have been 1-0.
The away team have scored 7 goals so far this season and 6 of those have come in the second half of a game.
West Ham have sorted out the defence issues and have had 3 clean sheets in their last 4 games.
I think anyone going should be ready for a bit of a boring game and while it does look like Burnley have got going away from home, they have now won only 1 of their last 7 at home.
It smacks of a draw all day long.
