Despite only winning two of their opening six matches of the season, Watford and Burnley are the top profit earning teams in the Premier League so far this campaign. Long odds victories against West Ham and Manchester United have put Watford out on top, with a return of £45.80 profit.
Burnley’s triumph over Liverpool at odds of 7/1 represents the biggest odds upset of the season to date.

Yet to record a victory this season, Sunderland and Stoke are the biggest losers for punters so far. But two of the other more surprising teams for bettors to avoid so far this campaign have been West Ham (-£47.63) and defending Champions Leicester City (-£32.70).
Who’ll be the long odds winners this weekend? Can Burnley claim another major scalp when they take on Arsenal at Turf Moor? The Clarets are 8/1 for victory.
