Outlandish Premier League predictions that could be worth a cheeky punt…
The English Premier League is notoriously unpredictable – oh, hi there Leicester City! – with even the safest looking bets capable of going tits up. On that note, shout out to anyone who backed a top five finish for Man Utd last season. In the spirit of incalculability, the betconnect team share some Premier League predictions so outlandish they might actually come true…

Having been written off before the season even started, I feel Newcastle could be the surprise package this year. My tip would be for a top-half finish under Steve Bruce. If the sale of the club goes through sooner rather than later, how about going one step further and backing them for the Euro places? At 50/1 for a top six finish, I’d definitely risk a quid.
Phil, CRM Manager
Chelsea bottom half finish was sitting at 10/1 last I checked. But with a rookie manager, Hazard gone, and a transfer ban, they’ve got a few ingredients that could contribute to a struggling season that could see them languishing in the wrong half of the table.

Phil you’re out of your mind, seek help. The perfect ingredients for success is what you mean. Super Frank at the helm with Jody, the new generation coming through the ranks, Cech technical director and one of the greatest Premier League players of all time in the coaching team; Claude Makelele.
My Premier League predictions? City win by a landslide, and Liverpool drop back and fight out 2-4 with Chelsea and Spurs. Arsenal finish 5th (in desperate need of a keeper, centre backs and midfielders, they splashed all their cash on another attacking player). United (un)surprisingly don’t make the top six because Solskjaer is an absolute fraud.

Nah Harvey, Liverpool are gonna be out of the title race within the first 12 games after dropping countless points against all the other top five in a tough start to the season. My top betting tip? Arsenal will net the most goals. Definitely worth a punt at 45/1.

West Ham are going to finish in the top four (at best price 66/1). This is the year for the Hammers. This is the year Jack Wilshere becomes the player he was always meant to be. Remember that night in 2011 when he ran Xavi and Iniesta all over the park at just 19 years old? Wilshere will partner fellow Englishman Declan Rice in the middle of midfield. This is the year the Irons have made two big money signings in Haller and Fornals. Felipe Anderson on one wing with Lanzini on the other, both extremely talented players.
Plus, they’ve got two solid centre-halves in Diop and Balbuena, and probably the 4th best keeper in the league in Fabianski. To top it all off, a Premier League winner as manager. Mark my words, the Champions League Anthem will be playing at the Olympic Stadium in the not so distant future.
Pipe down, Jimmy. West Ham to finish outside the top 10.
Eamonn, Trading Director
I fancy Leicester City’s chances of making the top six. At 10/1 it’s not the most outlandish prediction but those are tasty odds for what I reckon is a pretty safe bet. I also like the look of:
Liverpool to win: 11/4 each way 1/3 ods 1st, 2nd
Brighton bottom at Christmas: 9/1
Without big six – West Ham: 11/1
Finish bottom – Newcastle: 12/1
Champions without Man City and Liverpool – Everton: 40/1
