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.

        Yes. My ML leader ended up copying my team once he got infront but I've been reducing it by captaining others and bringing in different players.

      Its like all the alternative captains that get proposed each week. Sure he might outscore suarez but more likely than not he wont and much more likely suarez will get a monster score.

      But hey i had a spell looking elsewhere from suarez because i got bored with his points being meaningless as everyone captained him. I lost more often than not of course and missed out on a couple of monster scores but thems the risks

          Yeah, I settled up with the GK that I think is not going to concede more than 3, instead of GK I am sure is going to concede 2 or more. It's like choosing between hives and plague.

          You think the Chiriches transfer may be good? I'm pretty sure Sherwood is not keen to hold on to Kaboul and Dwson after their recent performances. Question is of course can they keep clean sheets, but their fixtures are darn good and underlying stats quite okay, so I think they can.

      noticed he was barely involved in attack while Deulofeu was on the pitch at Fulham.

      pass to Deu, Deu runs and smashes it somewhere.

      When he made way, though, Coleman was able to make overlapping runs for Mirallas and was in the box, square for Naismiths goal. If Naismith didn't fancy the tight finish, we'd have seen Coleman knock it in (if memory serves correct).

      Basically, he's appears a threat in a Deu-less Everton. Otherwise, he's a bit of a waste.

      Was going to suggest it to you before. No membership for me this year to back up my hunch though.

      Surely not Evs..A depleted Newcastle team who didn't even register half a dozen chances last week and took a battering at the other end....Evra CS and assist very much on the cards.
