Why fixture difficulty can be important in Football Index


Sponsored by Football Index


The new season is already underway, as is my debut campaign betting on Football Index (FI).

As mentioned previously, I’m going to be dipping my toe into the potentially lucrative FI waters all year, hoping to build a modest budget into something a little showier.

We ran over the basic rules of the game in that first article, so today I’m going to start looking a bit deeper into how I might be successful betting on the football stockmarket.

One other thing of note is Premier League bias. We will mostly be looking at Premier League players this season so we can tie FI coverage into our FPL content.

However, FI runs across five major European leagues – England, Spain, Italy, Germany and France – as well as the two UEFA club competitions, so we’ll be removing our Little Englander blinkers from time to time, and especially when there’s a player or Euro event that just can’t be ignored.

And so onwards to…

Will Cheap = Cheerful?

At the most basic level, betting and trading in shares requires you to buy low and sell high.

With that in mind, a good place to start looking for FI bargain bets is among the unknowns, either in terms of their overall (lack of) celebrity among football fans or as a first-time Premier League performer.

In other words, who will be this season’s Teemu Pukki?

Well, first up it’s wise to remember that a breakthrough striker from the Championship is not an every-season phenomenon. Don’t try to force players into pre-conceived narratives. Instead, discover the narrative that fits a player.

Last season, in FPL, that included both Pukki’s early goals and the out-of-position delights of John Lundstram.

This term, my eyes are being drawn to Leeds United.

Manager Marcelo Bielsa is not nicknamed ‘El Loco’ because of his singular devotion to steam trains, so it’s highly unlikely the Whites are going to be shunted into the sidings of dull irrelevance, to mix a metaphor or two.

There’s a feeling of all or nothing about him and his team. They could crash and burn, or they could win hearts, minds and a fine haul of points with a heady mix of high pressing at home and counter-attacks on the road.

Record signing Rodrigo Moreno has already caught my eye – mainly because he’s currently available for about one quid a share. For context, the most expensive player in FI at present is a certain Borussia Dortmund youngster available for well over £14.

Should Moreno quickly find his feet in a Leeds team with, it must be said, a tricky opening set of games, then the striker’s value is not going to stay so wonderfully low.

‘Should’ is doing all the heavy lifting in the previous sentence, mind, so we shall see.

The Fixtures ‘N’ Form Boys

If Leeds’ early schedule is not the easiest, there’s always another team with a brighter immediate outlook.

That leads me on to an FI tactic probably the closest to standard FPL practice – pinpoint a player with a great schedule and tap into it, and them.

With FI, the upsides of this are many.

As well as getting in-play dividends (see below) early doors, they’re in with a chance of the usual match day and team of the month bonuses.

And, if they’re doing the business consistently, they’re also likely to feature heavily in the press, which opens up opportunities to win media dividends on a daily basis.

Success should also breed success, with more fellow managers buying into your prescient pick and bumping up his overall value.

Chelsea have one of the kindest opening set of fixtures, with ‘opening’ here meaning ‘all the way through to Christmas’. Of the biggest teams in the league, Frank Lampard’s men will face only Liverpool (at home) and Man United (away) across their first 14 matches, running into the dim and distant future that is December 19.

Tapping into the wealth of Chelsea’s attacking options seems wise, therefore, with their most expensive FI asset, a certain new striker from the Bundesliga, setting you back close to £6 a share.

Their other major summer transfer business involved Hakim Ziyech, who looked good in the pre-season game at Brighton before succumbing to a knee injury. That has knocked quite a bit of value off him, so he could be worth a look at the mid-£3 mark if he recovers sooner rather than later.

Another team with a great initial schedule is Manchester United.

As you might expect, there’s a lot of money tied up in their key assets, but at around £3 a share, a certain French striker looks well-priced.

If he can continue last season’s fine form – he was United’s leading scorer in FPL with 200 points – then he looks under-valued, particularly with Champions League football to further sweeten the deal.

In-play dividends

This is the closest FI comes to an FPL-style short-term bet.

Some managers might buy a player in for a specific Gameweek. That’s some managers. It’s rare and, presumably, not overly successful, but many of us have eyed up an asset with a good run of, say, four fixtures before things turn nastier further down the line.

FI pays out in-play dividends to all players you bet for the 30 days following that purchase.

It is, potentially, a canny way to win in the short term. How long you keep these players after that initial burst of potential profit is, as ever, the key to longer-term success.

Again, Man United’s early run looks so tempting – Spurs, Chelsea and Arsenal should be their toughest tests in the first 11 matches, and all three of those are at Old Trafford.

Tapping into that schedule across the first 30 days of a bet could be lucrative if you buy a United player at the right time (and price, obviously).

Make a bet, for example, just before the early October home game with Spurs, and you’ll have opportunities to win in-play dividends from both domestic and Champions League football.

      Really? He only has xG of 0.15 against Spurs and looked quite poor. Did nothing other than score that 1 header

        Is “Hate” not a little strong?

    Anything against doing Ings Son to DCL Bruno ?

    McCarthy
    TAA/Davies/Justin/Vinagre
    Auba/Salah/Son/ASM
    Werner/Ings

    Steer/Mitchell/Bissouma/Brewster

      apart from the -4pts? nope looks good

    Nothing ITB, 1 FT

    was planning on getting KDB next GW but with him rising tonight in gone off the idea
    A) hold and save FT, KDB in GW3
    B) get rid of BDavies for Coleman/Reece James
    C) other suggestion

  5. davies
    • 6 Years

    Alli + Vinagre > Rodriguez + Saiss (-8)

    Y or N?

    1. aapoman
      • 6 Years
      8 days, 6 hours ago

      nop for -8

    2. mcrayeps
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 6 hours ago

      depends on your other players.. no backup for vinagre?

      1. davies
        • 6 Years
        8 days, 6 hours ago

        Mitchell only

        1. mcrayeps
          • 3 Years
          8 days, 6 hours ago

          i prefer Digne + Greenwood actually for -8.. Digne can easily have a CS to cover your hit, and Greenwood much better than Alli / James

    3. Shteve
      • 11 Years
      8 days, 6 hours ago

      No

    Havertz to James Rodriguez? Or save?

    McCarhty
    TAA Egan Justin Ayling
    Salah Auba Havertz
    Werner Richarlison Mitro

    1. ManofKent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Too early to assess Havertz IMO - first game with club etc.

  8. Silecro
    • 2 Years
    8 days, 6 hours ago

    which option is better?

    A) Alli, Ings > DCL, Rashford (-4)
    B) Ings > Martial for free (And play Alli)

      couldn't agree more - the whole of the UK is trying to cut down problem gambling - yet this site, gaming adverts are getting more and more. 99.9% OF PEOPLE LOSE MONEY GAMBLING - PLEASE DO NOT THINK IT'S A WAY OF MAKING MONEY.

      In general, businesses choose between ad funding and paid membership. I agree that I'm uncomfortable paying for a membership to something nonetheless running a huge amount of sponsored content.

      1. French Gooner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        8 days, 4 hours ago

        I believe I have been a paying member for 8years. I greatly appreciate the majority of the content offered to paying members which I feel is actually underpriced.

        I am however not willing to pay a membership to be overloaded by gambling adverts or any other adverts for that matter.

        As you correctly pointed out, you can’t have it both ways in terms of revenue. Paying members shouldn’t have to face excessive advertising.

    Kane > Martial or save FT?

    1. DrNelson
      8 days, 6 hours ago

      I would strongly consider it if I wanted Martial in my team for a run of fixtures so yes if it were to avoid a price rise. Saving the FT is powerful. CRY defense looked okay. We do not know how united will look. SOU defense is not great so Kane can score.

    1. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      he scored 15 pts is my guess.

          Look at the fixtures after GW2

    2. aapoman
      • 6 Years
      8 days, 6 hours ago

      Was super threatening in the air. Almost scored a second goal from a corner and hit the cross bar from inside the box later. Was also strong defensively by blocking shots and clearing the ball from the line to preserve a clean sheet.

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Problem with Saiss is previous seasons he had spells of attacking and spells of being anonymous. Not saying he's a bad pick, but be wary.

  13. Cheeto__Bandito

    BENCH - all fodder

    Looking at doing the following changes if Werner is out:

    Son & Werner -> Rashford & Martial (-4)

    This allows me to get Man Utd players in that I want long term.

    Really think FPL towers need to have a serious think about price changes - Increases and decreases - to keep the game both fun and fair for everyone.

    I can’t complain generally myself, as usually by the time I use my second wildcard it is handy to have the extra cash for sure, but the way it operates sucks the fun out of the game imo

    There are definitely smarter ways to manage the market than what is used at the moment - for example, rewarding early adopters of a form player but at the same time not actively “punishing” people that decide to buy

    Or not punishing owners keeping a player with a price decrease because huge numbers of knee jerkers chase points elsewhere. Or simply restrict FPL players to one change per week for the first 3 weeks.

    These are not proposals, just simply to say there must be many better ways than whats there at the moment if FPL towers just gave it some thought.

      It would be nice if the rises and falls all happened at once, just after the deadline.

      But I guess not everyone likes to strategically plan, some might want the game more dynamic and exciting. I'm happy to adapt to whatever landscape we're given.

    I never thought I’d feel this bad about my GW1 team...

    Wildcard looks so tempting

    1. CHRISFF
      • 6 Years

      WHATS YOUR TEAM?

        1. CHRISFF
          • 6 Years
          8 days, 6 hours ago

          If your not happy with your team then go for it, I would consider wild carding that team. Saving your wildcard is not essential

        2. Freddiebell
          • 4 Years
          8 days, 6 hours ago

          just werner to martial. Other than that you're team looks ok

    1) Alli and Nketiah -> Klich and Martial
    2) Alli and Nketiah -> Klich and Jimenez
    3) Do nothing

    I have no united players currently. I don't think Nketiah will start next game and will want to get him out for gw3 anyway.

    B) Robbo + Adams/Mitro -> Saiss + Jimmy next week

      B
      Although, you will want Liverpool defenders from gw4 so taking them out and bringing them back in is a lot of work and transfers.

    Alot of people transferring out Dele Alli already which seems a bit premature.

    He was pulled early against Everton despite having an ok first half. He could have scored if not for a good save from Pickfrod.

    I think he'll be fired up this weekend to prove a point to Mourinho. And he has good form stats against Southampton scoring 5 goals and 4 assists in 8 appearances against them, 3 goals in 5 coming at St Mary's.

    I think it's prudent to at the least wait until Spurs European game to see how they line up before making a transfer decision.

      If you have plans to hold someone for say in case of first 8 GWs for Spurs, you should do that.

      If it was a one week punt, then they can transfer him out

    2. CHRISFF

      There are better options than Alli so waiting will only cost you team value and delay the inevitable he,s not even a guaranteed starter. For me he was a poor pick.

      Good points, gents.

      I maybe view Alli too kindly having benefited from him in past seasons.

      I think I'll stick to the plan and keep him for Spurs good fixtures. I don't think they were as bad as everyone is making out and I think Alli will get bang some points in the coming weeks.

      I am reading in the media that the players are rebelling against Mou because the gaffer critisised them labelling them as lazy in Everton post match interview.
      I have Alli and Davies, seriously consdering the WC to get rid of Spurs.

        I've got Dier, Doherty and Alli.

        A little dose of perspective needed... They lost 0-1 and it could have easily been a 1-0 win as Kane, Alli and Doherty all had good chances and Everton's goal was dubious given the advantage they managed to gain on the free-kick.

        Stay strong, far too early for a wild card!

      Was being marked by Allan might I add, won’t have a wall like that on him every week

        Great point. One of the best ballwinners in Europe. Southampton will be a different game!

    Havertz to James Rodriguez seems the obvious move here

    1. ManofKent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Both are likely to improve - 1st games with clubs is a dangerous measure of their short-term form

  28. Maddamotha

    Would you do any of these, or best to hold?

    A) Davies > Shaw
    B) Werner > Martial

    1. linkafu
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 6 hours ago

      Looks like Man U are trying to replace Shaw so B

      1. Maddamotha
        • 3 Years
        8 days, 6 hours ago

        Are they? I didnt know. Who?

    2. Clay Davis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 6 hours ago

      Certainly not A.

      Maybe B.

      But I thought Werner looked lively last night, and after LIV they have wba, CPL, SOU... you'll want him back for those three.

      1. Maddamotha
        • 3 Years
        8 days, 6 hours ago

        Yeah he looked good, I agree.I have TAA too tho, so for my team it would be better getting Martial.

    3. Freddiebell
      • 4 Years
      8 days, 6 hours ago

      I'm doing B

      1. Maddamotha

        Good lookin homey

    Help here

    A- Alli to J.Rodrigez for -4
    B- Alli to Greenwood for -4
    C-Alli to Barnes for -4

    D- Keep Alli he will play

    1. Hadebayor Mum
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 days, 6 hours ago

      I'm giving Alli one last chance, although I'll see how many minutes he gets in Bulgaria on Thursday.

      1. mynameisq
        • 7 Years
        8 days, 6 hours ago

        Same, if it looks like he won't play then I'll ship but keeping for now

    2. Clay Davis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 6 hours ago

      Are you crazy? A hit to take out Alli doesn't make sense. You picked him for a reason, stick to the plan. He'll be fired up after being taken off at H/T

      He's scored 5 goals and 4 assists in 8 appearances vs Southampton.

    Bottomed on last article. Scored a big 34, knee is jerking, but I'm actually leaning towards E?

    McCarthy
    TAA Taylor Egan
    Alli Havertz Auba (C) ASM
    Adams Ings Werner

    BPF Davies Bissouma Saiss

    A - Ings to Martial
    B - Havertz to Bruno
    C - Alli to Rashford
    D - Adams to DCL/Richarlison
    E - Save, 2FT for GW3

    1. The Knights Template

      You've got a good team for this weekend. United were poor in a friendly vs Villa at the weekend, although they were missing some stars. Palace played better than everyone anticipated so that match will be difficult to judge.

      I'd save transfer keep 2FT for GW3 - more data to work off.
