The domestic returns on Friday night with second tier league leaders Burnley taking on 11th-placed Sunderland. The hosts are yet to lose at home in league competition this season and the Black Cats have won just one of their last seven in the Championship. It can be tough to find value in such a one-sided affair but fear not, we’ve done all the heavy lifting for you and found a five-legged Bet Builder.

Over 2.5 Goals

The Clarets have scored a whopping 74 goals in the Championship this season with 43 of them coming at Turf Moor where they’ve also only conceded 13. They have won five of their last seven league games without conceding as well and have scored a minimum of three goals in seven of their last 10 home league games. 

Sunderland aren’t in great shape but they are, at least, scoring goals. They’ve won just one of their last five in the league, scoring four goals while conceding 11. On their travels Tony Mowbray’s side have scored seven while conceding five. With Burnley in such good form we’re likely looking at another 3-0 or 2-1 win here so we’re backing seeing at least three goals. 

Sunderland to Receive the Most Cards

Burnley are one of the most well-behaved Championship teams, collecting 68 yellow cards and two reds this season while Sunderland have been somewhat naughty with 82 yellow and three reds.

The hosts have picked up just six cards over their last five home league games while the visitors have collected 11 over their last five on their travels. Against a team that passes and moves as quick as Burnley do, Sunderland will surely be bringing players down and receiving more bookings here.

Nathan Tella to Score Anytime

Nathan Tella is very much enjoying his loan at Burnley from Southampton this season, the right-sided forward is top of the Burnley goal scorers charts with 17 goals and three assists for the campaign so far.

He has five goals over his last five for the Clarets and six over his last five at Turf Moor. In such scintillating form we simply have to back him to add to his tally. 

Burnley Over 5.5 Corners

The home side are averaging a very healthy 7.0 corners per home Championship match. As per usual they’re going to have the lion’s share of possession here and goal-scoring threats meaning we should again see them getting at least six corners.

Joe Gelhardt to have 1 or more Shots on Target

There’s a giant Ross Stewart-shaped hole missing from this Sunderland side, they desperately need him and his goals back in the team.

In his absence, Joe Gelhardt has been leading the line in all three of the Black Cat’s most recent away games. While chances are going to be hard to come by for the away side here, Gelhardt is averaging just shy of 2.0 shots per game and we reckon he’ll get at least one on target against Arijanet Muric between the Burnley sticks.
