Burnley vs. Tottenham Hotspur – EPL, October 26, 2020

| October 23, 2020 6:55 am PDT

These two clubs already look as though they will enjoy very different Premier League campaigns this season.

Burnley is set to struggle once again and could be more heavily involved in a relegation battle, while Spurs could push for a European place – if it can stop conceding late goals.

Burnley vs. Spurs Latest Odds

Burnley to Win +387
The Draw +242
Tottenham Hotspur to Win -187

These look like quite good odds for a Burnley win, considering that it is at home and Spurs will need to recover quickly from a Europa League game on Thursday. But then you should remember that Burnley has not won a game at all yet this season and has only managed three goals. The odds for a Spurs victory suddenly don’t seem that bad.

Burnley vs. Tottenham Hotspur Preview

The point from the goalless draw with West Brom last weekend should be cherished by Burnley, but manager Sean Dyche will know that it was exactly the kind of game that his team needs to win. Burnley is already considered to be one of the favorites to go down and that result will not have helped matters.

The club has been criticized for not bringing in much in the way of new recruits in the summer. But the truth is that there is not that much money to spend – and Burnley is not the most attractive destination for any player looking to ply his trade in the English Premier League.

How Sean Dyche would have dearly loved to be able to sign one of the better defenders from the Championship to bolster his squad, as Jose Mourinho was able to do with Joe Rodon. The Welsh international will be a great addition to Spurs and should fit seamlessly into the EPL.

He will not have enjoyed watching the way Spurs crumbled last weekend against West Ham though. After going 3-0 up with barely 15 minutes gone, a stoppage time cracker from Manuel Lanzini left Tottenham with just a point. Spurs is definitely not boring this season – there have been a total of 23 goals in just five league games.

Burnley vs. Tottenham Hotspur Prediction and Pick

Pick
  • Tottenham Hotspur to Win
    -187

Even though it is odds on favorite to win this one, I don’t think the price for a Spurs win is too bad. The London club looks far more happier than its host this weekend. With Harry Kane and Son Heung-min already managing 19 goals between them in all competitions, an away win seems the more likely.
