Betting Spy: Bookies keep under-estimating Burnley

This gambling game knows how to pull the rug from under you when you think you are on a roll.

I've already been browsing the Burnley club shop to spend the winnings. A club dart board would fill a gap above my mantelpiece

After a few good weeks Betting Spy was looking forward to another profitable weekend when it all went horribly wrong.

Our tip in the Grand National was hauled down by another horse at the first fence while Man City got their swagger back and swamped Spurs who were carrying our cash.

But like our National jockey you have to dust yourself down and get back on the betting horse.

Which is fairly obvious really considering this is a weekly tipping column.

The running total below is still looking healthy at £140 in the black for a £10 weekly stake.

Which isn’t bad in a world where your bank interest is lucky to cover the price of a pint each month.

Burnley have done us a few favours this season thanks to the bookies constantly under-rating them and over-pricing the Clarets.

And they’ve done it again this week.

Burnley are away at a Stoke side who sit 12 places and 24 points below them in the league.

Yet the home side are favourites with Sean Dyche’s men available at 5/2.

It’s a bit mystifying but don’t worry about the workings of the bookies mind – just lump on the price and cheer on another Burnley win on the road.
