There's a reason ODA's got no.1 on lock, 1 of which is "Unpredictability".
It's not so much unpredictability as it is more coherent story writing. Any plot can follow a linear path to its main objective and by viewing as a whole one can see how Oda can get from point A to point B. What makes him successful is how he gets from point A to point B. He's like a magician that retains our attention while the trick happens elsewhere thus creating the illusion of unpredictability. At least that's what I think.
