History makers Ireland are the weekend's big winners at 14/1

Winners

Burnley pulled off a great win over Crystal Palace at home, with Ashley Barnes scoring an injury time winner resulting in a 3-2 win for the newly promoted side. They were as big as 5/2 to win the game.

Ireland pulled off a massive upset as they beat one of the best sporting sides in history, the All Blacks. Five tries and Johnny Sexton’s fine form with the boot sealed an emphatic 40-29 victory.

Sunderland got their first win of the season away at Bournemouth, lifting them to the dizzying heights of five points from 11 games. They did drift in the relegation market, out to 2/5. You have to start somewhere, right?

Andy Murray’s rise to the summit of world tennis is no surprise, considering Novak Djokovic is not in great fiddle. A year that certainly isn’t to forget could well be topped off at BBC Sports Personality of the Year, where he has shortened to 8/15 since becoming world number one.

Losers

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was relieved of his duties by QPR, after scraping a last gasp 1-1 draw away at Nottingham Forest. Tim Sherwood currently leads the market to replace the Dutchman at 4/7.

Having lost four games on the bounce following last minute heartache at the hands of Burnley this weekend, Crystal Palace are on a horrific run of form. This has led to manager Alan Pardew moving into second favourite for the next manager to leave at 5/1.

Championship heavyweights Norwich are also struggling, with no win in four games. Beaten by the Championship's form team Leeds, after being pummelled by Brighton 5-0 the week before, has led them drifting out to 16/1 to win the title. Is time running out for Alex Neil?
