Burnley vs Wolves: Betting tips, predictions, odds & match preview
Burnley are looking to continue their improved form as they welcome Nuno Espirito Santo’s Wolves outfit to Turf Moor on Monday night.
Burnley vs Wolves: Predictions
Burnley’s early season form suggested that a relegation battle was more likely than another top-half tilt. The Clarets failed to pick up a single win in their first seven matches of the season and boss Sean Dyche cut a frustrated figure after a lack of transfer activity during the summer months.
However, having broken their winless duck for the campaign with a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace last month, the Lancashire outfit have lost just one of their last five, with the eight points collected hoisting them out of the relegation zone.
The visitors to Turf Moor this time around are a Wolves outfit that have shown flashes of their potential without ever managing to reach a consistent level of performance so far this term – leaving them in 10th place at this still relatively early stage of the campaign.
A comeback win over Chelsea in midweek, inspired by a terrific goal and performance from Daniel Podence, showed just what Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are capable of – but can they find some consistency to launch an attack on the European qualification places next?

Burnley vs Wolves: Match Stats
Goals are at a premium for Burnley once again this season and their recent games have been particularly low-scoring. Both Burnley’s last two game and Wolves’ last two games have been goalless at half-time, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see the same happen again here.
Perhaps unsurprisingly that these two sides aren’t the most attack-minded in the Premier League, neither side have won a particularly high amount of corners either this year. With Burnley’s total of 49 the second-lowest in the league and Wolves down in 14th in this particular table with 60.
19 March 2016 – Burnley 1-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers – Championship
16 September 2018 – Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-0 Burnley – Premier League
30 March 2019 – Burnley 2-0 Wolverhampton Wanderers – Premier League
25 August 2019 Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-1 Burnley – Premier League
15 July 2020 Burnley 1-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers – Premier League
Unsurprisingly, a lot of recent games between these two sides have been low-scoring. Both games finished 1-1 last season, with a 96th minute penalty from Chris Wood rescuing the Clarets a point in the last meeting in July.
