Draw

This is the type of game where you get blisters on your backside from sitting on the fence, but the draw has to be the selection for this contest. It’s a great bet for a number of reasons. In terms of chances created in the Premier League this season, Burnley and Wolves rank 18th and 19th respectively.

A quarter of Burnley’s games this season have finished 0-0, so entertainment may be at a premium at Turf Moor. Unfortunately, it seems quite fair that this game is in the graveyard slot at 17:30 on a Monday. But, you just don’t see too many goals in ties involving these two, so expect a low scoring affair here too.

Burnley to keep a clean sheet

The interesting angle, instead of the normal goalscorer pick, is for Burnley to hold Wolves scoreless here. The price is really tempting because Sean Dyche’s men are back doing the things that have kept them in the top flight for this long. Defensively, they are getting in the blocks and narrowing the angles for attackers – which is something they failed to do at the beginning of the campaign.

Behind those defenders, Burnley have a goalkeeper in phenomenal form. Nick Pope has saved Burnley’s bacon on more than one occasion this season and he could be the deference between being relegated or surviving for The Clarets. He really has Jordan Pickford looking over his shoulder ahead of the Euros and he could be number one heading into the tournament.
