We turn to the Scout Picks and Differntials for inspiration as we look to get one over Paddy Power. Two of the top three midfielders in the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) game get our backing and we also put our faith in a born-again Fantasy talent now plying his trade on Humberside:

Our first match of interest is the KC encounter between Hull and West Brom tomorrow afternoon. Paddy are offering massive 50/1 for Nikica Jelavic to score two or more and the Tigers to keep a clean sheet – decent odds, given that very scenario occurred as recently as Gameweek 27 away to Cardiff. The Croatian has notched three times in his last five, whilst Steve Bruce’s side have kept out their opponents twice over that period and we’re willing to part company with £3 for this one.

On to the Etihad next, where Man City entertain basement-dwellers Fulham. This time around, Paddy are prepared to offer 16/5 on Yaya Toure to score and the hosts to register a clean sheet. The Ivorian has scored in three of his last five home appearances, and with Manuel Pellegrini’s side racking up three consecutive clean sheets, we’re willing to make this our bet of the week and hand Paddy £4 of our kitty.

Our final £3 goes on Liverpool’s trip to Cardiff. Paddy are offering 13/2 on Steven Gerrard to score and the Merseysiders to keep out Ole Gunner Solskjaer’s strugglers. The Reds skipper has scored four times in his last three road trips alone, and with Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge wreaking havoc up top, there’s always the likelihood of another spot-kick falling his way. Liverpool have registered back-to-back shut-outs, whilst their hosts have failed to score in six of Solskjaer’s 10 games in charge.

  4. New Post
  5. Need to fill a last slot for this DGW but unsure who from the following:

    A) Kolarov
    B) Flanagan

    Currently have 2 from each LFC and MCFC. Flanno guaranteed game time but Kola more explosive and more DGWs coming up.

“All players will blank a few times during the season. When almost all do it in the same Gameweek, it is tough to take, but that's just the dark side of probability.”
