The Spurs will take on the Clarets at19:30 GMT and punters will find some attractive pre-game and live in-play markets.
Burnley and Tottenham both have significant wins coming into Wednesday's rescheduled Premier League match. Only a few days ago, this game would have hardly piqued interest, but big victories against Brighton and Manchester City, respectively, have given their campaigns new life. Sean Dyche's team might put further pressure on those above them in the relegation struggle, while Spurs will undoubtedly take advantage of the situation to highlight their Champions League qualification bid.
Despite picking up knocks during the win against Brighton, Maxwel Cornet and Wout Weghorst are both expected to play, which is a significant boost for the home side, however, Charlie Taylor and Jóhann Gudmundsson are not quite ready yet.
Japhet Tanganga and Oliver Skipp remain doubts for Spurs, while Sergio Reguilon will miss out after testing positive for Covid.
Burnley's massive win may have given them a new lease on life, but two wins in 22 games do not indicate a club capable of going on a run.
At Etihad, Antonio Conte's team defeated the reigning champions 3-2, thanks to a stoppage-time goal from Harry Kane, to complete an incredible league double over the Sky Blues. After three losses in a row, the Lilywhites got back on track with a resounding victory, and they'll be aiming to build on that momentum. They are still in eighth place, but they have a few games in hand on teams vying for a place in the Champions League.
Tottenham has won 51 of their 120 meetings with Burnley while losing 41 of them. Burnley has only won one of their last 12 Premier League matches against Spurs, a 2-1 victory at home in February 2019. Only one of the Lilywhites' 14 league encounters against Burnley has ended in a scoreless tie – a 0-0 draw in April 2015.
Burnley has been abysmal this season, scoring only 20 goals, the second-lowest in the division behind Norwich City (15).
