Which clubs have bashed the bookies the most this season?
Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, Leicester and Everton have been the punters' pals more than any other football clubs this season.
That quartet have upset the bookies odds more than any other – and will be looking to carry on bashing the bookies this weekend.
Everton have just upset the odds to beat Chelsea and Leicester – and the Toffees have picked up points against the odds more often than almost any other club.
The Toffees were tipped to lose by the bookmakers in five of their league games this season, according to data taken from football-data.co.uk.
They managed to win three of those matches and drew another one, meaning they picked up 10 points against the odds.
Only five clubs have defied the odds to pick up more points this season – Crystal Palace (14), Southampton (12), Aston Villa (12), Newcastle (11), and West Ham (11).
Someone placing a £10 bet on Everton to win every league game this season would be up £61.00 according to the data, not including their initial stake.
That’s some way behind Aston Villa, who would have earned someone doing the same with their matches £166.80.
