Burnley pay peanuts compared to the richest clubs in the Premier League but have shown that good management and an efficient operation off the field can get results as they have lost just once in their last nine matches. Sean Dyche seems happy as their manager but he is prominent in the betting to be the next manager of Everton but he will be in charge when Burnley play Newcastle tonight at Turf Moor in a fixture they can win but it looks like being a low scoring encounter.
In each side’s last 10 fixtures (20 in total) both teams have scored eight times. Statistically Burnley and Newcastle’s matches produce over 2.5 goals at a ratio of about one in four which equates to 1/3 so less than three goals is the bet at 4/6 with Betfair which looks a massive price. Burnley look good things to win the match and add to their tally of 13 points from nine matches especially as they have already Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool and Manchester City away from home.
The concept of Monday Night Football was invented by the NFL who take a fixture out of the weekend schedule and broadcast it on the first night of the week. It’s not always a standout fixture and matches are shared out. Burnley at home to Newcastle would not be your first pick from the Premier League and Denver at Kansas City from AFC West is similar. However, the fixture could provide some fun because DENVER +7 at Evens with bet365 looks a decent bet.
When a horse that has shown decent form in a handicap but has been allocated an uncompetitive weight returns to a claimer the vibes can be good. At Leicester today (2.30pm) there is such a horse. His mark has been raised after a decent win which means that VIBES is dropping in class and at 7/2 with Ladbrokes looks an outstanding bet on an ordinary day for racing.
