Reason For Burnley vs MK Dons Predictions

  • Under 2.5 goals have been scored in seven of Burnley’s last nine games.
  • Under 2.5 goals have been registered in six of MK Dons last nine fixtures.
  • Burnley have kept a clean sheet in three of their last five matches.

Few goals anticipated at Turf Moor

In typical Clarets style, Burnley have been leaning on their strong defensive foundations to secure points in the league of late, and Sean Dyche’s men have been building some serious momentum in recent weeks as a result.

Burnley were beaten just twice in their last nine matches overall, and remarkably, the only goals they conceded in the most recent five of those games were struck from the penalty spot by Wolves and Leeds.

At the opposite end, Burnley remain far from prolific however, and as a result, under 2.5 goals were scored in seven of their nine aforementioned assignments since early November.

We expect that combination of robust defending and modest attacking play to produce another low-scoring game when Burnley host League One side Milton Keynes in the FA Cup Third Round on Saturday, and that in turn makes the under 2.5 goals market worth plundering again.

The Dons have seen under 2.5 goals notched in six of their last nine fixtures themselves, and having hit the net one of fewer times in seven of their last nine matches on the road, Russell Martin’s side could find breaking down Burnley’s notoriously mean backline extremely tough.

With that considered, a 2-0 Burnley win jumps out as a correct score prediction worth backing for Saturday’s Third Round tussle.
