Classy Cherries can pick off their southern rivals
Brighton and Southampton could be put in their place
Can Burnley maintain their flying start to the season? It's one of the big conundrums facing punters, particularly in terms of the betting without the big six, as the sixth-placed Clarets are still not rated favourites to finish as the best of the rest.
Burnley have won 1-0 six times, which will be difficult to maintain, although that is reflected in the prices. Leicester don't make much appeal as favourites but Everton may be worth a second look and it's difficult to see anyone else getting involved.
Only Swansea have a worse shot ratio (share of match shots) than Southampton and Brighton in the Premier League with both managed by conservative coaches in Manuel Pellegrino and Chris Hughton respectively.
Bournemouth are more progressive under Eddie Howe and the Cherries can make up the necessary ground with all of the other members of the bottom seven yet to visit Dean Court.
