Paddy Power’s blogger,Josh Powell shared this selections of the strangest bets of the Premier’s League 21th round
One client placed 5 pound bet that the match between Hull City and Chelsea will end 4:5, odds 501.00 . Only one time in history Chelsea had scored five goals against Hull City, it was in the year 1905. and Chelsea had won 5:1, and the last time Chelsea played (and won) with the 5:4 score was against Birmingham in 1977. On the other side in the last 12 months Hull scored 4 or more goals on two matches, vs Birmingham (5:2 win) and trashing the Fulham last month 6:0.
Other client placed 4 pound bet that Chico Flores will score first, and the match Manchester Utd vs Swansea will end in Swansea win by 3:1. Odds on that bet…851.00. Chico scored only once in 64 hours he played in the Premier League. Last time Swansea won against Man Utd was more than 80 years ago in 1932.
An 1251.00 odd was given for the bet,that Alvaro negredo will score first and Man. City is going to trash Newcastle Utd. with 7:0 score. Newcastle never lost with 7:0 result on the home ground and the last time they conceded seven goals on home pitch was in 1953. when they lost 3;7 against WBA. Man City never scored more than 4 goals in Newcastle, last time in 1968.
