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

Here's our round up of the strangest Premier League and FA Cup punts for this weekend...

Crystal Palace to beat Liverpool 4-3 and Christian Benteke to score first – 1000/1

  • He may have only managed nine goals in his single season at Anfield before Jurgen Klopp turfed him out, but one punter from London is predicting Benteke will come back to haunt his former club big time.
  • He’d also need Palace to repeat their 4-3 FA Cup triumph from 1990 to see his two quid turn into £2,500, so good luck with that one.

Net some great football odds at

Tottenham to beat Chelsea 5-2 – 375/1

  • Even though Chelsea have only conceded 27 goals in 32 league games this season, one customer in Oxford has backed Tottenham to smash through their defensive walls.
  • Spurs have never beaten The Blues 5-2 in the Cup, but they did manage it in the league once in December 1961.

Arsenal to beat Manchester City 4-0 – 175/1

  • Wenger Out signs might be the meme of the moment, but we have a Dublin-based punter who fancies Arsene’s boys to batter Man City on Sunday.
  • The Gunners have fired off three 4-0 victories over The Citizens in their history (1932, 1974 and 1989), so he may just be in with a shout.
