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.

    Mitchell in 11 and bench Dallas the right call?

    1. DRP

      yes

    2. Jersey Boy
      • 2 Years

      Yes. Fancy Mitchell to start tonight.

    "No, they are fatigued, many games, mental fatigue," Guardiola said, when asked if Walker or De Bruyne were injured.

    "They were a little bit tired. In the beginning [of the season] we couldn't do it with all the problems. Now we have players back so it was good for them to have a week off."

    What does Pep mean that Walker and KDB have/had the week off? Still good to start this weekend though I assume?

    1. DRP

      Don't overthink... they will start.

    2. Zim0

      It'll be a week till their match

    3. ElliotJHP

      I'd assume so. Read this as they had the opportunity to have the midweek break, whereas earlier in the season they had to play every game + qualification asap was the aim.

      Keyword is was and not is, I think. Maybe they also had a break from trimning. Obviously city can't afford to rest KDB in the league.

    Side G2G? Weighed up sorting out bench for a hit as could end up with 10 men this week but probably won't.

      good starting 11... no hits required.

      Ideal team but maybe take this as an opportunity to sell Wilson for Bamford

      1. ElliotJHP
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Aye, you're probably right Miguel but those next five games are hard to ignore.

    Play James vs Spurs or Dallas vs Everton?

  5. Shark Team

    Which captain duo will score more?
    A)
    Gw10: Salah vs BHA(A)
    Gw11: KDB vs FUL(H)

    B)
    Gw10:Vardy vs FUL(H)
    Gw11:Vardy vs SHU(A)

  6. DAVESAVES

    Should I do Ziyech to KDB for free?

  7. Who are all Lukakus

    Son to Salah(c) for -4?
    I will do this transfer before GW12(Salah vs Fulham) anyways. Do it now so I can spend 1FT on GW12 on someone else. Good idea?
    Overall by spending -4, I can have Salah now, AND create one FT for the future. Is it correct?

    Is it worth doing Regulión to Cancelo or Dias for -4? I figure I should break even this week, so would be set up nicely thereafter. Planning a -4 anyway next week, excluding this move. Thoughts?

    Repost, due to no response:

    GTG?

    Any chance for Mitchell to start tonight?

    I find the Dias brigade very boring.

    No, he isnt 100% nailed.
    Yes, Cancelo will start 75% of PL games, and yes his ceiling is higher than Dias.

  13. BS03

      Who to bench?
      James Cresswell Justin Bellerin
