Stupid Punt: The wildest big odds bets placed on this weekend’s Premier League

Forget Paddys Day... It's time for Stupid Punt, our weekly round-up of the big odds bets our punters have placed on this week's Premier League games!

Marouane Fellaini to score first and Manchester United to beat Middlesbrough 4-2, 400/1

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic still banned and the majority of United’s strikeforce injured thanks to Phil Jones being, well, himself…This punter is backing Fellaini to become the hero at the Riverside Stadium this weekend. Paul Pogba also appeared to sustain an injury in his side’s 1-0 win over FC Rostov on Thursday night. Step forward Mr. Fellaini, who has two goals so far this season…The epitome of “hoof it to the big lad up front.”


West Brom v Arsenal to finish 3-3, 66/1

There has been just one 3-3 scoreline between these two sides in 137 meetings. In fact, the last time they drew was in October 2013 where the goals came from Jack Wilshere and Claudio Yacob. This one would send Arsenal fans into a meltdown, and could blow the top four race wide open, with Arsenal currently on 50 points in fifth, and Manchester United just behind in 49.

James Milner to score first and Liverpool to beat Manchester City 3-1, 250/1

City have won just two of their last seven games against The Reds in all competitions, so we can see why this punter is backing Jurgen Klopp to cause an upset. James Milner found the net in a 3-0 drubbing of The Blues last year, too, and is always a man you can rely on to score a penalty. We’ve almost convinced ourselves this one might not be so stupid…
