Pottering Towards The Championship?
Stoke haven't beaten a top-half team since August while Burnley have taken even more points on the road (27) than at home (25).
We were guilty of under-estimating Burnley early in the season, and they are stat-defying in many ways, but the bookies are keeping that going to the very end.
The Clarets really have to be backed at best odds of 13/5 with BetFair to win at Stoke, a side 12 places and 24 points behind them.
Form is also in our favour since Dyche’s boys have won 5 of their last 6 matches while the Potters have gone 10 matches without success.
Simply needing a victory at all costs isn’t enough to make it happen - just ask Sunderland. As it happens Burnley are incentivised anyway as they continue their unlikely pursuit of Arsenal.
