Burnley vs Nottingham Forest prediction betting tips Premier League Sunday 19th May 2024

Already relegated Burnley will be looking to end a disappointing season on a high when they welcome a Nottingham Forest side who are all but guaranteed of their top-flight status to Turf Moor on Sunday (16:00).

Burnley vs Nottingham Forest Tips

  • Burnley - Draw No Bet @ 11/10
  • #PickYourPunt - BTTS & Jacob Bruun Larsen to score anytime @ 13/5

Team News

Burnley have no fresh injury concerns to contend with, but Luca Koleosho (knee), Nathan Redmond (thigh), Jordan Beyer (thigh), Aaron Ramsey (knee) and Ameen Al-Dakhil (unspecified) are all expected to remain on the treatment table.

Forest midfielder Nicolas Dominguez will miss out after undergoing hernia surgery, he joins Neco Williams (hamstring) on the sidelines.

Burnley vs Nottingham Forest Odds

Burnley have only won two home matches all season in the top-flight and they are 15/8 outsiders to add a third, while Forest, who were victorious at Sheffield United in their last away fixture, are 13/10 for the victory. The draw is priced at 13/5.

September's reverse meeting at the City Ground ended in a 1-1 draw and it is 13/2 for a repeat scoreline on Sunday, while it is 2/5 that, like in that game, both teams find the back of the net.

Burnley - Draw No Bet @ 11/10

Although Forest's survival has not been officially rubber stamped, realistically they are safe, which means there is very little riding on Sunday's meeting.

It had looked like the Clarets were going to mount a late survival charge prior to losing back-to-back games at home to Newcastle and away to Tottenham - the latter result confirmed their relegation - but the Clarets can still come into this game with some positive momentum.

Vincent Kompany's side have only lost one of their last four home games and they also boast an impressive record against Forest, as they are unbeaten in the last eight meetings and have not lost at home to the Tricky Trees since September 2003.

Burnley's lowly position in the standings, coupled with their lack of home wins, makes it hard to go all out on the Clarets victory, but backing them in the draw no bet market does provide some security.

Draw No Bet Burnley at 11-10

#PickYourPunt - BTTS & Jacob Bruun Larsen to score anytime @ 13/5

Despite both teams being at the wrong end of the table, goals should be guaranteed at Turf Moor, as Burnley are without a clean sheet in 20 league matches and both teams have scored in nine of their last 10.

It is a similar story for Forest, who have not shut the opposition out in any of their last 13 matches across all competitions and a combined nine goals have been scored in their last two fixtures.

Backing both teams to score should certainly form the bedrock of this #PickYourPunt, while it could also prove shrewd to side with Burnley winger Jacob Bruun Larsen to score anytime.

The on-loan Hoffenheim player is likely to be playing his final match for Burnley and he will hope to sign off with a goal.

Bruun Larsen is Burnley's leading scorer this season with seven goals across all competitions and four of those strikes have come in his last nine games.

He is a man in form and can notch again on Sunday.
