The Fantasy Flutter with Paddy Power – Gameweek 33

While Paddy Power get distracted by the gee-gees at Aintree, we turn to the Scout Picks for inspiration once again in another bid to beat them at their own game. The late news on Wayne Rooney’s injury has left us one down in the market stakes but there’s still a couple of in-form budget-friendly midfielders that catch our eye…

We start by crossing the border to Wales, where Cardiff are set to entertain fellow-strugglers Crystal Palace. This time around, Paddy are prepared to offer 10/1 on Jordan Mutch to score and the Bluebirds to register a clean sheet. The in-form midfielder has netted three times in the last two, whilst Tony Pulis’ side have scored just one goal in their last six road trips – with this in mind, Paddy gets £4 of our kitty.

Our final £6 goes on this afternoon’s showdown at Carrow Road, where Norwich take on West Brom in a proverbial six-pointer. Paddy are offering 11/1 on Robert Snodgrass to score and the Canaries to keep out their midlands opponents. Bearing in mind that Snodgrass has scored in two of his last three home fixtures and Chris Hughton’s side have conceded a single strike in the last six in front of their own supporters, this is our bet of the week.

Register and Bet £10 And Get £20 of Free Bets

If you’re new to Paddy Power, you can take up any of these odds and get yourself a bonus. You can sign up on this site and receive four free bets of £5 when you register an account and bet a tenner. More details can be found here.

    UFPL: Thinking of bringing in Silva & Dzeko for Sissoko and Rooney for 3wks & 18pts. Fighured they should at the very least get back 16 in apps so any thin at all positive and it should be a profit. What je reckon? Haven't got many doublers to speak of either

      Looks sensible if you've little on the bench. I've got Rooney but I think I'm going to risk absorbing his missing week this weekend and check on the injury.

        Yeah nice one. I'm surprised at how weak I went up front now tbh. Mental note for next yr.

        I don't know if you're taking feedback for it Mark but I think being allowed maybe a max of 2 but independent of each other might be a good tweak. You know like 1 for 2wks 1 for a 1wk kind of thing.

        Actually, I reckon Rooney to Dzeko for 7 points looks good for me given the blank and chance that Dzeko will get minutes over the double.

      Really harsh on Rooney owners as he's been a great alternative to Lukaku & Sturridge. If you consider this week a blank, and obviously next week then you should be able to make the hit back with appearance points alone, as you say.

      You may need another hit to get him back from GW35 onwards but they're still good moves, IMO. Good luck!

          They could do, but that's extra transfers out and back in so likely to be more hits taken. Just saying the late news has been harsh but Rooney is worth a transfer out as you should be confident in recouping any points hit over the 2 blanks.

    Having a dilemma this morning.

    Currently side is
    Ruddy (Mannone)
    Chester - Ward - Coleman (Fonte, McCartney)
    Hazard - Llalana - Yaya - Snodgrass (Barkley)
    Suarez - Sturridge - Lukaku
    2.1M in bank

    I want to get McCartney out (dgw hangover gamble that didn't really work), but I'm not sure whether to go Azpi or Caulker.
    I'm also really keen on getting in Mutch as I can see further hauls today and in weeks ahead, but dumping out Barkley before DGW seems crazy (I almost switched Llallana in late night madness moment). Next week I'll likely be outing Studge for Aguero (if he doesn't break his leg) and maybe another change for a hit to increase my DGWers.

    Right now though, I'm looking at:
    a) McCartney to Azpi
    b) McCartney to Caulker
    c) Snodgrass to Mutch
    d) Barkely to Mutch
    e) Something else

    Team this week...

    Mannone

    Coleman / Olsson / Zaba

    Bacuna / Mata / Yaya / Hazard

    Suarez (c) / Lukaku / Sturridge

    Bench: Howard / Lallana / Ward / Collins

    Can't decide whether to play Lallana over Bacuna and Howard over Mannone. Pretty sure all of the above will struggle to score anything.

    Thoughts appreciated

      I'm playing double Everton at The back, but would probably pick Mannone over Howard. Just bought Lallana for this GW so obviously I'm playing him, but Bacuna have The better fixture. Mannone and Lallana for me
