William Hill are offering a prize fund of 50m, to be split between anyone who predicts the final Premier League table for the coming season.

2 an entry.

When you break the league down to the mini-leagues, it becomes slightly easier, but still a very hard ask. Might have a go at it, just to see how I get on.

Hard enough working out the order of the top 4 the easiest of the mini leagues to predict, that I would amazed if someone correctly predicts the full table.

Reflected by a 50m prize for doing it.

Astronomical odds probably in the billions to one

Worth a punt for a laugh

121,645,100,408,832,000 / 1 odds (discounting that it's almost 100% certain Chelsea and Arsenal won't finish bottom; Watford won't win the league etc).

You are 8bn times more likely to win the lottery.

Fantastic moneyspinner for WillHill.

I make it two and a half trillion to one.

2,432,902,008,176,640,000

Although my calculation was based on vague recollection of statistical sequencing from GCSE maths - 20!

I get the same number, although not sure that's trillion, but rather 2.5 million trillion?

If you break the division down into sub-divisions - top 6, middle 8, bottom 6, it comes down to about 21 billion to 1. 6/7/7 makes it 18.3 billion to 1.

The 50 million doesn't look like great value, especially as it's a 2 stake (so 25 million - 1), but worth chucking 2 on, nonetheless!

Actually, I think it's 2.5 quintillion!!

Anyone still in with a chance?

Our win yesterday was a bit of a blow because I need Stoke to overtake Chelsea.
