The Fantasy Flutter: Burnley can exploit Newcastle’s weakness at set plays

There’s more to football fandom than Fantasy management, with some of our readers enjoying a flutter now and again, too.

In this weekly feature, we turn to the data available in our Members Area to help us make some – hopefully – informed punts on the weekend’s action.

We backed a few winners in Gameweek 27, with goals in short supply at Selhurst Park, Wolverhampton Wanderers winning to nil, Dominic Calvert-Lewin scoring the first goal at the Emirates and Trent Alexander-Arnold claiming two of his customary assists.

We were only a crossbar’s width away from completing the clean sweep, too, with Virgil van Dijk striking the West Ham United woodwork with a header.

Rolling monthly subscriptions are now available for £2.99, while half-season memberships (expiring on June 1) can be bought for £9.99

And please always remember with gambling: when the fun stops, stop.

Only Aston Villa (who blank in Gameweek 28) have allowed more attempts from set pieces than Newcastle United this calendar year and in 2019/20 overall.

Steve Bruce’s troops also have the worst expected goals conceded (xGC) from set plays tally than any other side in the division.

The Magpies’ opponents this weekend, Burnley, are second amongst Premier League clubs for expected goals scored (xG) from set plays, meanwhile.

Ben Mee and James Tarkowski are both threats in the air (they have racked up 23 headed chances from dead-ball situations between them) and are 40/1 and 35/1 respectively with Paddy Power to grab the first goal at St. James’ Park on Saturday.

The pair are 18/1 and 17/1 to score at any time with the same bookmaker.

Playing it a touch safer, Chris Wood – whose fitness we should find out about in Sean Dyche’s pre-match press conference – is 5/1 with Paddy Power to break the deadlock on Tyneside and 15/8 with the same bookies to score at any point during the match.

The case for Firmino in a Liverpool triple-up for Double Gameweek 24

Roberto Firmino‘s Jekyll-and-Hyde goalscoring form this season is well-documented, with all eight of his league goals coming away from Anfield – that’s more than Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah have managed combined on the road.

The Brazilian has also had more big chances on his travels than his two teammates up front have mustered in away games combined.

Firmino just happens to be top of the Goals Imminent table, having ‘underachieved’ to the tune of 2.67 goals over his last four matches based on xG.

Watford, the Reds’ opponents this weekend, have conceded on nine occasions in their last four league fixtures.

The Liverpool number nine is 6/1 with BoyleSports to score the first goal at Vicarage Road and 15/8 to score at any time with BetVictor.

Wolves’ run of clean sheets will surely come to an end sooner rather later but they are facing Tottenham Hotspur at perhaps the right time.

Without Harry Kane or Son Heung-min at Stamford Bridge last weekend, Spurs managed just three shots in the box and didn’t have a single big chance all game, relying on an Antonio Rudiger own-goal for their consolation effort.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have kept out Espanyol, Leicester City and Manchester United already this month, and are 12/5 with William Hill to register a clean sheet at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this weekend.

Matt Doherty is 18/1 with bet365 to notch the first goal and a tempting 7/1 with the same bookmakers to score at any time in north London – no player involved at Molineux last Sunday had more shots in the box or penalty box touches.

    arghh how is auba still going up.......can maybe understand after the match, but people have now had a chance to look at the team theyre playing next week
    these idiots are going to ruin some plans with a price rise 🙁

    1. My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 3 Years

      And Grealish and KdB will drop this week 🙁

      If you really want Auba then get him in for a blank.

      I am getting him in irrespective of price 🙂

      1. FOO FIGHTER

    3. reo19uk

      Suggestion is he wont go up as the thought is figures are slightly wrong due to wild cards as they don't count towards price rises

    Well this article is upsetting given I was already pencilling in a clean sheet for Lascelles this week

    1. Old Man

      Never pencil in clean sheets - the oppo attack usually finds a way to thwart them.

    TAA Stevens* Holgate Lascelles Tanganga
    Salah Mane KDB* Grealish* Cantwell

    1. TheDragon

      Grealish -> Leicester mid will be popular given fixtures.

      If you’ve got any cash left after that then Holgate or Tanganga to Leicester or wolves defender

      I don't want to see anyone connected to this site talking about mental health when this site promoted gambling

        Very well said.

        Quite a few mods have done cringe mental health posts even though they advertise gambling. I think Jonty and AZ even did a YouTube video on it once..... They need a reality check, double standards on this site.

        1. Freddiebell

          Gambling ruined my life 25 years ago but I got back on my feet thanks to some good friends. I can't even look at any betting markets because I'm afraid it will trigger me off again. One of the main reasons I started doing fantasy football was to keep me interested in football without the uge to have a bet.

          1. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            I can Completely relate to this.

            Gambling nearly ruined my life only 5 years back. Got addicted as a result of some stuff I was going through and it all got well out of control. Hooked on fantasy football, gamble free now, it helps me in the same way I’m guessing it helps you.

            Glad you got sorted though mate!

            1. Freddiebell

              Good for you also for battling it Gimme your Manè. You never ever defeat it after being addicted, it's an every day battle, you need to be very focused on other things and just keep away at even looking at prices on sport especially football. Football bets are a big winner for the bookies. What doesn't help is the betting companies giving free bets matching you're first bet to join there site and place a bet.

                Yep, the urge never goes away.

                Mine was purely on football, in play live bets.....

                Stuff like betting companies doing offers doesn’t tempt me, it’s only ever when your having a bad day, maybe stress related, and they are the days for me where if I see an advert, the thought hits the head. But saying this, I’ll not crumble ever again, ever, nearly lost everything!

            Glad you defeated it Freddie! Was it just sports betting which gave you problems If I may ask? I believe right now the biggest problem when it comes to gambling are online casinos, they literally take your money as there's no skill involved!

            1. Freddiebell
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              It was mainly football bets for me. The draw is a killer for gamblers. Betting on football is a mugs game and I was one of them mugs years ago unfortunately.

                Thanks for sharing. Don't feel bad about it, anyone can get addicted! I can see why someone that has experienced hell would want all gambling banned and I don't blame them.
                My opinion is many things in life can be good fun (like partying) - BUT only as long as it's under your control and you enjoy it.

    4. Whazza

      I don't like that they mention the names of the betting sites, free promo or paid? However, the tips are actually good and backed up by stats, so it's not like they are trying to steal our money.
      Also "If you’re going to wager, please always gamble responsibly."

      A fair few football nerds on this forum (like myself), enjoy having a small bet now and then I assume are quite good at it when playing this much attention to FPL..

      1. Rash
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        I must say playing fpl has not improved my ability at gambling.

        1. Whazza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Probably not if you use it to hedge your bets (bet against your fpl players). I meant since we follow things like form, injuries and suspensions so closely we have the knowledge to place better bets than if we betted on some random games.

          1. Freddiebell
            • 3 Years

            Don't get me started Whazza hahaha

    Was thinking of saving BB longer than this... But looking at my gw 29 team (after FTs) I should probably just hit it then?

    Henderson (NOR)
    TAA (BOU) - Gomez (BOU) - Pereira (AVL) - Doherty (BHA)
    Salah (BOU) - Martial (MCI) - Barnes (AVL)
    Auba (WHU) - Ings (NEW) - Jimenez (BHA)

    Pope (TOT) - Traore (BHA) - Stephens (NEW) - Fleck (NOR)

    Never had everyone playing at home!

    1. Concrete
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Save for a DGW?

      1. Whazza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        I will FH one DGW and not sure I can manage this good a bench for the other...Bench likely to be single game players anyway. This looks good to me, just worried about Traore

        1. Concrete
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          It certainly has the potential to payoff

    2. The Units

    I think 7 players will be enough in GW31 to warrant saving FH for a DGW along with WC for the other one...

    This is assuming Liverpool beat Chelsea and blank, if they don’t blank then 10 / 11 will be do-able with no FH needed...

    Who scores more this week?

    A) Cantwell+DCL
    B) Fernandez+Vardy uses a -4 hit

      A

      a

  18. tomasjj

    1 month, 3 days ago

    Gtg?

    Pope
    TAA Pereira, Lascelles, Holgate
    Mane (C), Traore Dendonker
    Firmino Jiménez, Vardy

    Or take a hit to get a starter in midfield for Graelish or Traore (then moving to a Wolves defender later)?

    1. tomasjj
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Bench - Kiko, Grealish, KDB. Button

    2. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      No hit required

      1. tomasjj

        1 month, 3 days ago

        Cheers!
        You reckon Traoré will be a starter then, going forward?

        1. The Units
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          I think its worth playing him this week and see if he starts. Avoid the hit and then reassess.

          1. tomasjj
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            I will keep an eye on the Europa League game.

  19. FOO FIGHTER

    I reckon Leicester double attack looking at their fixtures is like the forbidden fruit.

    Just depends on what double up you go with.

    1. TheDragon
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      How about even bolder:

      5 at the back!
      TAA, Robbo, Pereira, Chilwell, Doherty

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Double LFC defence and 1 x Wolves.

        Like this

        Think Leicester defence is preferable and Pereira for one is almost as likely as any mid really for attacking returns.

    2. JT11fc

      1 month, 3 days ago

      Ye could be a rank climber. Will prob just have Vardy unless i lose KDB to fund Vardy and Barnes

    Aguero dropped. 😮

    1. TheDragon
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Nah just being rested for the league game this gameweek. Aguero captain this gameweek looks good given certainty of start.

      Given the transfers in looks like some will be going with Aguero and aubameyang up front this week - big points guaranteed!

      1. Bushwhacker
        1 month, 3 days ago

        But he’s not playing this week ...

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Aguero has been pants to be frank.

      1. Bushwhacker
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Naw ; Jesus has been pants and ruins Aguero when alongside.

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Jesus scored a goal this past weekend.

        Thanks. Hoping to break top 40k. What's your team?

          Couple of posts up.
          Light in midfield for this week.

          1. DALEDOBACK
            1 month, 3 days ago

            O ah. Yeh you need traore to start. I did Grealish to Barnes but not sure it's worth a -4.

            1. tomasjj
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              Yes, I guess you are right.

              I will keep an eye on the Wolves Europa League game.

    4. reo19uk

      Bad news for the DGWs as just means another player who will play 1 and miss 1!

  23. thepuntmaster

    I'm on this for next week:

    McCarthy (whu)
    TAA (wat) - Gomez (wat) - Doherty (tot)
    Salah (wat) - Traore (tot) - Willian (bou) - Cantwell (LEI)
    Ings (whu) - DCL (MUN) - Murray (CRY)

    Button - Lascelles (BUR) - KDB - Egan
    1FT & 8.3itb

    Was thinking of shifting Willian for someone, but now thinking he might return to the XI after being rested last night. Would also like the 2FT next week in case of double gwk and to shift Murray up to Jimi/Auba.
    Which of these:
    A) Hold
    B) Willian > Fernandes or Mount
    C) Traore > Fernandes or Mount

    1. JT11fc
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Hold

    2. Tinkermania
      1 month, 3 days ago

      He will definitely play.

    Have the exact cash to do Grealish to Maddison using my 1 FT....would give me 11 playing for GW 28 do it??…..Y/N??

    1. zinaks
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I´d prefer perez or barnes over maddison....on the other hand they are risk rotations...

      1. jtreble
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        You prefer players who'll play? That's crazy talk mate. 🙂

    2. JT11fc
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Not a fan of Maddy but any kind of Leicester coverage will prob get some reward

  25. Niho992
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Aguero rested for blank

    1. JT11fc
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Or League cup final

  26. rokonto

    How would there be a double gameweek 29, what's it depend on?

  27. Syd.
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Real Madrid are 2/1 at home

  28. JT11fc
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 3 days ago

    How do these moves look?
    Maupay Grealish - Vardy Cantwell -4

    Will give me this

    Pope
    Trent Digne Dunk
    Mane Salah Rich Cantwell
    Ings Vardy Long

    Button Lascelles KDB Kelly

    Kun benched...don’t normally do this but, I kinda called it! Just a shame he didn’t capitalise on his extra PL minutes...

    1. Syd.
      • 10 Years

      It was widely expected

    2. Tinkermania
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Aguerro has been tactically rotated a few times.

  30. SHOOTER MCGINN
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Doherty vs Pereira is proving to be a difficult choice. Likely to end up with both after a few weeks, but thoughts for this week?

    Probably going to end up playing 4-3-3 soon enough.

    1. JT11fc
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Tough one, prefer Pereira this week as Wolves have a ton of fixtures and Mou has had a week to conjure up something
