The Tap In: Burnley To Win
It’s the round of 16 in the FA Cup and things are starting to get interesting. We have a clash here between a Premier League side that are not safe from relegation and a Championship outfit that are still in the mix for a promotion play-off spot. The big question is what sort of line-ups are going to be fielded with big upcoming matches in the respective leagues for both teams.
Burnley have won the last four head-to-heads in recent years and on the last two occasions Bournemouth visited Turf Moor they lost 3-0 and 4-0. My take on this match is that Bournemouth will leave a few of their stalwarts at home and take a respectable defeat here. Burnley can be expected to rest one or two, but still should be much too strong for the Cherries.

The Speculator: Jay Rodriguez to Score First
Jay Rodriguez was left on the bench for Burnley’s match against Brighton on Saturday and is expected to start this match. He doesn’t score too often, but he did net a brace in the last round against Fulham.
He can also be expected to take any penalties awarded to Burnley as he scored one from the spot in that Fulham game. He has actually scored nine goals in 10 FA Cup appearances for Burnley, West Brom and Southampton combined since 2012, so if you want a striker for a cup game, he’s your man.

Boom Time: Burnley to win 4-0
As has already been mentioned, Burnley have defeated Bournemouth in their last four meetings and by wide margins in the last two matches. One of those was by a 4-0 scoreline and I’ll stick to my guns about expecting a weak Bournemouth line-up. I’ll go for a history repeating correct 4-0 score bet.
Everybody loves a big pay-out for a small stake and the current odds looks too good to refuse. Remember to only bet for fun and within your means. Be Lucky!
