Manchester United vs. Burnley prediction, odds: Expert reveals English Premier League picks, bets for Feb. 8

Manchester United will try to keep its league run going when it visits Burnley on Tuesday for an English Premier League match at Turf Moor. The Red Devils (11-5-6) have moved into the fourth spot in the Premier League table and are going for their third straight league win. They come in off a disappointing loss on penalties to Championship club Middlesbrough in the FA Cup on Friday. Three teams are within two points of Manchester United, so it knows it needs to secure three points against last-place Burnley. The Clarets  (1-10-8) played to a 0-0 draw with Watford on Saturday in a make-up game that was a battle to get out of the relegation zone. 

Kickoff is set for 3 p.m. ET in Burnley, England. Caesars Sportsbook lists Manchester United as the -180 favorite (risk $180 to win $100) on the 90-minute money line in its latest Burnley vs. Manchester United odds, with Bunley the +525 underdog. A draw is listed at +300 and the over-under for total goals scored is set at 2.5.

Why you should back Manchester United

The Red Devils have beaten Burnley five straight times at Turf Moor without conceding a goal, and they are 9-4-1 in the last 14 meetings overall. They have scored 20 more goals than Burnley (36-16) this season, while conceding three more (30-27). But United kept a strong West Ham team off the score sheet in its last Premier League outing, a 1-0 victory on Jan. 22. It held 57 percent possession in that match and outshot the Hammers 18-6. Man U holds the ball at 53.7 percent on average, while Burnley averages 39.2 possession, the second-worst mark in the league.

Marcus Rashford scored his fourth goal of the season against West Ham, and he is part of a deep roster of talented attackers. Cristiano Ronaldo is the top scorer with eight goals, while fellow Portuguese star Bruno Fernandes has seven goals and five assists. Man U has won the last two meetings 3-1, with Ronaldo scoring in the most recent meeting in December. 

Why you should back Burnley

Tuesday’s match will be Burnley’s 5,000th in English league play (since 1888), and it joins Preston North End as the only teams to reach that milestone. They are 45-23-65 in all-time meetings with Man U. The Clarets have been scrapping to draws all season, and they have been strong on the back end. They will be on home turf for a second straight game, and they have conceded eight goals in eight games while losing just twice at Turf Moor. 

The Red Devils have struggled on the back end for much of the season, and they have conceded at least once in five of their last six games. Maxwel Cornet has scored six goals this season, and Wout Weghorst had six in 18 matches with Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga before joining Burnley over a week ago. The Clarets have really struggled to shoot, ranking last in shots and attempts on target, but the 6-foot-5 Dutchman tied for third in the Bundesliga in attempts (92) and was fourth in shots on target (34) last season.
