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.

    Rooney being out is great for Mata IMO. The number of times that Mata passes to Rooney and move into a great position waiting for the return only for Rooney to waste possession with an aimless shot....

      I think Mata was beginning to forge a decent understanding with the Roonpig. He said he enjoyed it last week, and i think the Rooney absence will be a negative influence on his outputs.

    Should I change,

    Ruddy ----> Harper.

    Now, it won't be a great move considering this week only, however, I have to use a transfer this week. And If I don't it just means an extra bit at somepoint in the future - as it is part of my plan to acquire aguero. So if I don't do the transfer I am basically relying on ruddy getting a clean sheet today to just break even in the long run. Whereas if harper gets a clean sheet I've just avoided a hit

    Am I being stupid? Or does this make sense to anyone?
