With just one loss in all competitions this season, Clarets fans must be starting to think that anything is possible as we go into game week twelve of the Championship season.

The current table toppers are on offer at 14/1 to occupy top spot come the end of the season and be crowned champions of the division. Astonishingly, Sean Dyche’s men were on offer at 83/1 to win the Championship at the start of the season, but following a number of impressive wins, those odds have kept tumbling.

The odds of Burnley getting promoted have also shortened significantly having been 17/1 at the start of the season, they are not best priced at 4/1 to make a return to the top flight.

This weekend sees Sean Dyche’s men travel to Ipswich Town who have lost just one home game this season and will provide a stern test of Burnley’s promotion credentials. Leading odds comparison site Oddschecker.com can reveal that The Clarets are a best price 2/1 with BetVictor to take another three points against the Tractor boys who are in good form themselves, with just one defeat in six. Ipswich are available at 6/4 with Paddy Power, with the draw 12/5 with the Coral.

Danny Ings and Sam Vokes are the inform strike partnership in the Championship at the moment. Ings has opened the scoring in two of Burnley’s last four games and if you like the look of him to break the deadlock on Saturday, he is on offer at 6/1 with 888.com to score first. Ings to score and Burnley to win is a double available at 11/4 with Sky Bet.

Interestingly, both teams not to score may be a tempting punt. In three of the last four meetings between these two, one team has failed to score and both teams not to score is on offer at 6/5 with Sky Bet.

Burnley have been winning their last four games as they’ve gone into half time, winning all four of them by the final whistle. Burnley to be winning at half time and at full time is best priced at 17/4 with SpreadEx.

Burnley’s early season form has surprised many, including the bookmakers and they are currently the top profit team in the Championship. If you’d put £10 on the Clarets to win ahead of each of their 11 matches so far, you’d be £153 richer. We’ll keep you posted on that tally changes during the season!
