But instead let’s look back to last August and our tips for the title.
Now the cynical among you might be thinking this is just a ruse to take everyone’s mind of a recent run of form which has been challenging to say the least.
You’d be right of course but Betting Spy hasn’t had too many trumpets to blow this season so let’s at least have a little puff on this one.
It’s all here in black and white as Chelsea were our choice for the league at 13/2
Blowing the title now would surely make Antonio Conte’s hair plugs drop out but I’m confident the luxuriously coiffured Italian will be celebrating with his side next month.
So hopefully brave followers of this column will have a nice pay-day coming their way.
And let’s try and top that up with a win this weekend.
It’s always tricky this time of this season guessing who is up for matches as thoughts of a nice summer break loom large.
But I’ve picked a little favourites’ treble which might just pay off.
I like the look of Stoke to beat West Ham, Spurs to get the better of Arsenal and Crystal Palace to beat Burnley.
The treble pays 13/2 and might just see you double your Chelsea winnings in one weekend.
And just a little footnote to give a big shout-out to everyone who took part in the Lighthouse Club industry golf day at Foxhills on Thursday.
Generous sponsors JSP made sure it was another great event and their trademark hard hats came in handy for competitors every time Betting Spy took to the tee with its rather wayward driver.
