There is not much that separates Bournemouth and Burnley in the last weeks, and there is not much that separates them in the table: only two points. Obviously, the ‘cherries’ have the home field advantage in this match, but the visitors have their chances to win and odds are quite attractive.
It is true that the Burnley is down a lot at home, but Sean Dyche has improved noticeably in this aspect in 2017. And that improvement resulted in a victory in the last outing, an excellent 0-2 in the field of a Crystal Palace that arrived at a good time.
A repeat of that performance this Saturday would be a sure hit. Bournemouth is already safe, and it is very possible that Eddie Howe’s plays the game very safe. It is true that the Burnley is also out of danger by 99%, but must make that fact mathematically. Dyche will not let his own guys to relax. They have six points to Hull, two games remain and losing both means that team could still be in danger.
The most important variables in this game could be desire and determination, and if so, the odds on away team has a lot of value.
