Burnley and Leeds both line up at Turf Moor in search of a first Premier League victory following a testing start to the season.
United at least have the luxury of a point on the board and a confidence-boosting EFL Cup win in midweek makes Marcelo Bielsa’s side the most likely winners.
The Whites accounted for the Clarets both at home and away last season and they can justify slight favouritism at 13/10 in our first Burnley vs Leeds prediction.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley are yet to register a Premier League point as they gave away a one-goal lead at home to Brighton on the opening weekend before failing to land a blow in a 2-0 loss at Liverpool.
Reds manager Jurgen Klopp was critical of Burnley’s style of play during that Anfield contest and their physicality could be their biggest asset against a Leeds side sure to play at a break-neck tempo.
A changed XI scraped past Newcastle on penalties in midweek, with the Clarets’ only goal of the season coming in the opening two minutes of the campaign thanks to a James Tarkowski header.
A lack of enterprise in the attacking third could haunt them here and with their all-time top Premier League scorer Chris Wood finding the net just once in eight league matches against his former club, it is difficult to see where the goals are coming from.
With that in mind, 11/5 for the Clarets not to score appeals from the Burnley vs Leeds odds.
Last Burnley EPL line-up: Pope, Lowton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Cork, Gudmundsson, Brownhill, McNeil, Wood, Barnes.
A Look At Leeds United’s Betting Odds
Leeds bounced back well from a catastrophic 5-1 hammering off Manchester United by sharing the points with Everton in an entertaining 2-2 draw at Elland Road last Saturday.
Bielsa’s men traded blows with the Toffees over the course of the 90 minutes and Raphinha’s inch-perfect strike on 72 minutes was a more than fitting way to round off the scoring as the Brazilian opened his account for the season.
He sat out the EFL Cup win in midweek but has looked one of Leeds’ brightest sparks so far this term and is 13/2 to break the deadlock on Sunday.
Last year’s leading scorer Patrick Bamford is yet to get on the scoresheet but has been a consistent source of inspiration in attack, setting up Mateusz Klich at Elland Road last week and also Jack Harrison during their 3-0 cup win over Crewe.
Bamford is 4/1 to open the scoring at Turf Moor and that completes out Burnley vs Leeds betting tips.
Last Leeds EPL line-up: Meslier, Ayling, Firpo, Cooper, Struijk, Dallas, Harrison, Phillips, Klich, Bamford, Raphinha.
Newcastle 0-0 BURNLEY (3-4 on penalties)
LEEDS 3-0 Crewe – Kalvin Phillips, Jack Harrison (2)
Head-to-head: Burnley 0-4 Leeds, Leeds 1-0 Burnley, Burnley 2-2 Leeds, Burnley 1-0 Leeds, Leeds 1-1 Burnley
