The Fantasy Flutter: Betting odds on the weekend’s Premier League action 2

The Gameweek 10 fixtures are spread over four days, with Crystal Palace v Newcastle United getting us underway on Friday evening.

There are no surprises who the bookies are viewing as the bankers this weekend, with Manchester City priced up at 1/6 for their home match against Burnley.

The full-time result odds for the Gameweek 10 matches are:

CAN’T DEFEND FOR TOFFEE

Everton may have impressed in an attacking sense this season but they are without a clean sheet since the opening weekend of the campaign.

Their total of 16 goals conceded in the last eight Gameweeks is the worst in the division, with the recent loss of Lucas Digne to injury a further blow to their backline.

Not that this Saturday’s opponents, Leeds United, have been faring much better.

It’s feast or famine with Marcelo Bielsa’s side: they have kept three clean sheets this season, including a shut-out against Arsenal in Gameweek 9, but only whipping boys Fulham and West Brom (18 each) have conceded on more occasions than the Peacocks (17) in 2020/21.

The Saturday evening clash at Goodison Park not only features the two teams who have made the most defensive ‘errors’ this season but also the two goalkeepers who are, in Opta’s eyes, performing worse than any other shot-stoppers in terms of expected goals prevented (xGP).

Both teams to score at 8/15 therefore seems like a realistic bet but for more bang for your buck, over 3.5 goals at 6/4 is another route into the anticipated goalfest.

With the Toffees conceding two or more goals in seven of their last eight games, what price a two-all draw at Goodison Park? Well, 12/1 as it happens.

Top of every FPL asset for attempts on goal, efforts on target, shots in the box and big chances over the last six Gameweeks, Patrick Bamford is 6/1 to open the scoring on Merseyside.

DEFENDER SPENDER

Has normality been restored after the goal-crazed opening month of the campaign?

A total of 18 clean sheets were kept in the first 44 games of the season; that figure rises to 30 shut-outs in the second batch of 44 matches.

On a similar subject, the total number of goals scored fell from 164 to 101 in the first and second halves of the current campaign.

There are certainly a number of clean sheet possibilities this weekend.

An Arsenal side who have scored just one goal in five league games host Wolves, who have kept a joint-best four clean sheets in 2020/21.

Then there is the meeting at the Hawthorns between two teams who have scored on just 10 occasions in a combined 18 Premier League matches this season, plus the clash between Crystal Palace and Newcastle: a fixture that has seen just seven goals scored across the last seven times it has been contested.

Sticking a treble on under 2.5 goals in each of these three fixtures returns not far off 7/2.

And, of course, if you were backing a correct score bet or scorecast in any of the above fixtures, the bet365 Bore Draw Money Back special at least offers the consolation of your stake being refunded should the games be goalless stinkers.

Bore Draw Money Back

Refund for any Soccer game that finishes 0-0 at bet365.

Applies to losing pre-match bets on any Correct Score, Half-Time/Full-Time or Scorecast markets. Bet restrictions and T&Cs apply. New and eligible customers only.

WOR CAL

As mentioned earlier in this piece, the Gameweek 10 action kicks off this evening in south London.

Newcastle have Callum Wilson back from a hamstring injury just in time for this meeting at a damp, cold Selhurst Park – what could possibly go wrong?

Luckily, if you have backed the former Bournemouth striker to open the scoring at 5/1 and his hamstring goes twang before half-time, bet365 will refund your stake as bet credits.

Soccer Substitute Guarantee

If your player is substituted before half-time we will return your stake as Bet Credits on selected markets.

Only available to new and eligible customers. Bet restrictions and T&Cs apply.

There are other options available within the first goalscorer market with bet365.

A scruffy goal off someone’s backside may swiftly end your bet in normal circumstances but with each-way first goalscorers, you can get a 1/3 odds if your player goes onto score at any time during the game.

Take in-form Diogo Jota, for example, who is matching and even outperforming Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah for many key attacking metrics over the last four Gameweeks.

A bet on Jota to score first at Brighton on Saturday is 9/2 (longer odds than Salah or Mane to do likewise, as it happens) and by covering him each-way with an additional stake, you’re also getting 6/4 on him to score at any time.

Each Way First Goalscorers

Place an Each Way First Goalscorer bet on any Soccer match.

If your player scores at any time during the game in 90 minutes play, we will pay you out at 1/3 odds for unlimited places.

    Would you do Kane to Vardy captain for -4?

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I have done this exact move

      I do also own son and think both of them should score points in the next 4 game weeks or so. I just think vardy has a much higher potential in that time and especially this week.

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 4 days ago

        I also quite like to have the talisman for my cap, can see a situation where city win 2 or 3-0 and Kdb gets nothing

    2. The Handsome Hunk
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Yes

    3. what\'s my name
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      any other cap choices if you dont make that move?

      1. Captain Vantastic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Bruno DCL?

        1. what\'s my name
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          both valid options

  2. what\'s my name
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    appreciate opinions:

    Kane + Zieych to Bamford + KDB for a hit Y/N

    thx and GB

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      N

    2. The Handsome Hunk
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I am also in similar situation:-

      Kane + Bowen to Bam + KDB(-4) ??

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 4 days ago

        I’d do that one because ziyech is a much better player than Bowen

        1. The Handsome Hunk
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Would you capt. KDB over Salah/Bruno after making that move ??

          1. what\'s my name
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Mo and Bruno in isolation are both good cap picks imo

    3. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      No thanks

  3. Hattrick Harry
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 4 days ago

    You can’t sensibly bet for scorer bets before you see the line-ups. Over/under or outcome bets can be done before seeing line-ups.

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I think they cater more for the mug punter who doesn't ask these sorts of questions.

  4. Johnny too hotty
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Zaha owners what are your thoughts ?
    Can’t afford vardy without a hit so was thinking zaha to Maddison but just saw his history and hasn’t played that much. Anyone know why ?

    1. Jamb0
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Sell for Jota?

      1. JabbaWookiee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        This

      2. Bavarian
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        That's what I did

        1. Johnny too hotty
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Do you own salah too?

          1. Bavarian
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            No actually

      3. Johnny too hotty
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        I own salah tho

    2. Salan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Forget about Maddison.

      I don't understand why so many are hesitated to take a -4 hit this week.

      1. Johnny too hotty
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Fair comment. I’m not against a hit but part of thinks kane to vardy for a hit is risky as I’ll lose value ?
        Perhaps I’m thinking wrong and I should do the double swoop and captain vardy ?

        1. Salan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          I understand the situation of considering the value lost, but it is not the most important to me.

          If you plan/want to captain Vardy, I think it's worth to take a -4 hit to get Vardy. Surely no one knows what will happen this week, but the upside of Vardy or KDB/Sterling is too huge to ignore.

          1. Johnny too hotty
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Like that thinking a lot. If I do kane to vardy leave me 8.0 to replace zaha. Would you recommend anyone

            1. Salan
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Red hot one may be Jota, but honestly there are not too many exciting choices at 8.0 or slightly below. (I assume you have Grealish)

              1. Johnny too hotty
                • 9 Years
                3 months, 4 days ago

                I don’t have grealish but I have Watkins. Both a bit much ?

  5. JabbaWookiee
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Anyone else concerned a lack of Barkley will affect Grealish’s returns?

    1. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Yup. Not enough to sell him, though

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Yes but that’s far down my list of concerns

  6. Jamb0
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Tempted to WC... 3-5-2 formation.. how does it look?

    McCarthy
    Chilwell Konsa Justin
    Salah KDB Ziyech Grealish Jota
    Vardy DCL

    Forster Kilman Brewster 3.9

    1. The Handsome Hunk
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      defense is weak. Going into December.. Kilman/Justin/3.9 is not sustainable.

      1. Jamb0
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Thanks mate, you are right... think i need to tinker some more

  7. Inazuma X1
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    How many pressers left today?

  8. AC Yew
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Would you make the following moves for -8?

    Kane, zaha Jorghino ---> KDB Jota & Bamford

    1. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I wouldn’t normally advocate a -8, but those moves look gold.

    2. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Yes

  9. dansmusen
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Have a midfield of Grealish/Son/Hamez/Salah/Bruno would you do a -4 to get KDB in and who would you sacrifice?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Mr Grealish to the sacrificial alter please, Mr Grealish!

    2. Bavarian
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Have if you own DCL

      1. Bavarian
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Hamez sorry*

    3. MikeBravo

    Martinez
    Saiss Chilwell Lamptey
    Son Grealish Ziyech Zaha
    Bamford Kane DCL

    McCarthy Mitchell Justin Stephens

    Any changed and why?

    1. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Zaha and Mitchell to KDB and Dias

    2. balint84
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Play Justin, saiss+zaha need to drop, the rest are ok but this week

    3. Babit1967
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Saiss and Zaha out

      City or Pool in

      Take ur pick Robbo/Cancelo/Dias

      Sterling/KDB/ Salah

    4. Gandalf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Zaha > KDB or Salah and Saiss > Cancelo/Dias.

      Pretty obvious why picked out those 2

    5. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Saiss, mitchell and zaha to what you like and you are good to go

  11. balint84
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    One to bench
    Coady
    Dallas
    KWP

    I'm on coady but neither are very promising

  12. FISSH
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Would you guys sell Son at the moment? I have Kane... No Salah.

    1. dansmusen
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I will keep i think. Could score 10 point in any game.

    2. FISSH
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Or even sell DCL or Kane for Vardy..

    3. Pitch Perfect
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Keeping.

  13. Rolls-Royce
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    It just feels like I'd be asking for trouble if I don't get in Vardy this week. These are the fixtures in which we have seen he gets into a scoring streak and hauls consistently.

    Difficult decision to ditch Kane with his form but hard to resist Kane-> Vardy move when it gives me a great captain option for a few weeks.

    1. Johnny too hotty
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      The more I think the more I agree. I’m gonna do it but just don’t know who to replace zaha with at same time. Have 8.0

      1. The Knights Template
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        What about......

  14. The Hunt
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    I have absolutely nothing against a little flutter but I'm not a fan of these single bookie advertisement articles. Highlighting certain football bets is fine in my book but when bigger odds are freely available elsewhere it is just guiding people in the wrong direction financially.

    1. noquarternt
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Do you understand advertising?

      1. The Hunt
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        No, what is it?

    2. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      They get a cut apparently so it's a revenue thing. The opportunity cost of course is a decent article to read about what is a free and enjoyable pasttime.

  15. RIDZ
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Anyone consider Torres in from this gameweek?

    Thinking on Zaha replacement. Zaha to Jota could be easily swapped but I already have Salah, not sure double up Liverpool mid would be good.

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Torres an excellent choice if you like sweating and fretting about whether your player plays. Make sure you have a good bench.

    2. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Nothing wrong with a Liverpool double up, especially after their performance against Leicester

  16. Ibralicious
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Martinez
    Robbo - Chilwell - Coufal
    Bruno - Son - Jota - Grealish
    Kane - DCL - Bamford
    (Forster) - (Dallas - Bissouma - Mitchell)
    4.7 ITB - 0 FT

    Bamford -> Vardy (C) for a hit. Yay or nay?

    1. aleksios
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Go for it.

    2. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Yep

  17. Rex Lapis
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Ziyech + Kane to Bruno + Vardy worth a hit?

    1. aleksios
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Risky,could pay off.

    2. RIDZ
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      not for a hit, wait for one more week. Do you have Son?

      1. Rex Lapis
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        I have Son

        1. RIDZ
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Then you may consider Kane to Vardy this week, then get Bruno next week

    3. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Borderline, as Madonna always says.

      1. Rex Lapis
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        maybe just Kane to Vardy then

        1. The Knights Template
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Better

    Thoughts on this team? 2ft 0.9itb.

    --Martinez
    --Kwp--Robbo--Chilwell
    --Grealish--JRod--Bruno--Salah
    --Kane--Bam--DCL

    --Nyland--Mitchell--Lamptey--Burke.

    a) Lamptey+Salah to Cancelo+KDB
    b) Something better maybe?

    Thanks all.

    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Kdb or sterling for a hit?

    1. Legohair
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      KDB rested midweek so him

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Who ya hitting out?

      Not Son?

      1. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Rashford

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Cool.

          KdB used to be constiently good. Will be again soon. To hold.

          Sterling hauls occasionally.

          Both great picks.

    3. Jack Burton
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      My move also Rashford to KDB

  21. Pomp and Circumstance
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    2 FTs; are Salah --> KDB and Kane --> Vardy good moves?

    1. Legohair
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Yeah

    2. The Handsome Hunk
      • 6 Years

    Anyone like Barnes as a differential for the next three? FUL/shu/BHA

      this! I'm aiming on him to replace Zaha but I already have Vardy. What about Ferran Torres?

      Decent option and could do well

    As per many, I’m wrestling with the form (Spurs) vs fixtures (dilemma).
    I had planned to move my Spurs boys on to create space for City, but am now reluctant to - whilst also fearing the Pep roulette!
    Which all leaves me a bit stumped!

    What are your thoughts:
    McCarthy
    Chilwell - Justin - Coady*
    Son - Bruno - Grealish - Foden* - Ziyech*
    Kane - DCL
    Forster - Brewster - Mitchell - Kilman
    2FT - £4.1m ITB

    Plan A; max up on City:
    Ziyech>KDB & Coady>Cancelo

    Plan B; Power 5 in midfield:
    Foden>KDB & Coady>Nkounkou

    So; A or B? And why?

      Save

    Martinez | Fodder
    Cancelo Justin Lascelles
    KdB Bruno Ziyech Grealish
    Vardy Richarlison Watkins
    | Soucek Lamptey Taylor

    1 FT, 2.1 ITB

    GW 10 : Cancelo -> Robertson
    GW 12 : Ziyech, Grealish, Richarlison -> Salah, 5.5, Wilson

    Makes sense?

    Big dilemma

    Martinez Forster
    Konsa James Dallas Cresswell Kilman
    Barkley Ziyech Bruno Son Podence
    DCL Brewster Kane

    2 FT, 6.5 ITB

    1) just do Barkley --> KDB? meaning I will play Brewster vs WBA

    OR

    2) Barkley--> KDB, Podence --> Jota and Kane --> Vardy for a -4?

    Covers all the big teams for future but unsure if i should move Kane..

    Thanks in advance!

    A) Zouma to Dias
    B) Lamptey to Douglas for the money

  28. Pitch Perfect

    Does Salah's return impact Jota's appeal?
